Happy Holidays Shower Gel from Lush

The Happy Holidays Shower Gel was an exclusive item that was a part of Lush Kitchen’s December 2022 subscription box. Previous to this, it had been released before but under a different name, the Merry Christmas shower gel.

Back when it was the Merry Christmas shower gel, it had only been available in the 2021 advent calendar and only in a measly 100g bottle.

Having a fresh 250g bottle of it (albeit with a different name) has made me very happy indeed.

You’ll recognise the Happy Holidays shower gels scent from the discontinued, Valentine’s Day product the Cherryish body scrub.

Cherryish happens to be my most favourite of all of Lush’s body scrubs as it exfoliates and buffs my skin so well. I was therefore very excited to get another bottle of the shower gel scent-equivalent.

The Happy Holidays shower gel is jam-packed with the prettiest golden shimmer, getting a decent photo of it was ridiculously difficult, the photos included in this review do it no justice at all. You really must see it for yourself to truly appreciate it, it’s so SPARKLY!

To look at, the Happy Holidays shower gel is quite similar to the Hot Toddy shower gel.

It is however a lot brighter shimmer wise and a little more transparent.

Consistency wise, the Happy Holidays shower gel is thick but still very easy to get out of the bottle.

The Happy Holidays shower gel contains aloe vera, agave syrup, cocoa absolute, cinnamon, and almond essential oil. Its scent is a subtle cherry fragrance with a slight hint of chocolate and spice.

Its scent is both warm and tangy like a sweet and fruity jam. It lathers up in your hands easily and the chocolate element within it really comes through when mixed with the hot water and steam of the shower.

Something I often find with Lush shower gels is that less-is-more when it comes down to using them and this is the case for Happy Holidays, a little goes a very, very long way!

Comparing both the Cherryish body scrub and Happy Holidays shower gel scent wise, the shower gel is a lot stronger yet still very subtle. As I said earlier, the smallest amount of it goes a very long way. This is a huge bonus when you consider how rare the shower gel is at the time of writing this review.

Happy Holidays scent can still be detected on your skin once you’re out of the shower. It also leaves your skin appearing brighter, as well as softening it too; It’s perfect to use in the cold Winter months.

I would love to see bottles of the Happy Holidays shower gel become a main line Winter product next year and I’d also like more Cherryish scented products too!

Sweet Pudding Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sweet Pudding Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. While it looks like a mix of the past Christmas bath bombs, the Luxury Lush Pud and The Golden Pudding, it doesn’t smell like either.

Sweet Pudding actually shares its scent with the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb.

Sweet Pudding is the average size Lush bath bomb at 200g (the same size as the best sellers, Twilight and Intergalactic)

This bright pink pudding-shaped bath bomb was one of the first of the new 2022 Winter products to catch my eye, pink will always be my favourite colour and after falling in love with the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb, I couldn’t wait to give another bath bomb sharing its same scent a go.

The Sweet Pudding bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond oil. Its scent is sweet and warming. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla with hints of some type of berry. The almond oil adds a slight nuttiness to its fragrance which rounds off the tonka absolute.

It is incredibly moreish, and I can see why Lush have re used the scent again in this bath bomb.

As soon as the Sweet Pudding bath bomb hits the water a burst of thick pink foam erupts from it, slowly the foam begins to thin out but the bright pink colour still spreads, both across the surface of the water and underneath.

I must admit, I expected a little more bath art out of the Sweet Pudding bath bomb, I imagined pink and white swirls that were quite similar to the bath art created by the, The Comforter bath bomb however bath art isn’t all that makes a bath bomb good…

The scent is probably my most favourite thing about this bath bomb, that and the colour it turns the bath water.

While it doesn’t create much bath art it does turn your bath water an incredibly inviting, bright pink. I much prefer it over the Snow Fairy bath bomb.

Sweet Pudding takes approximately 8 minutes to fully dissolve, the water it leaves behind is incredibly soft and left my skin feeling super hydrated and silky-smooth.

Once you’re out of the bath, Sweet Puddings scent can still be smelt on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. Its scent also lingers around in your bathroom for a good few hours after using it too.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Sweet Pudding bath bomb. I would love to see it return next Christmas but sadly most of the new bath bombs in the Christmas line only get to see one Christmas.

If Lush don’t want to bring it back then I’d like to at least see the scent appear again, a shower gel equivalent would be divine!

Elf Shake Shower Gel from Lush

The Elf Shake Shower Gel is a brand-new release from Lush; It is a limited-edition product that is a part of Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. Taking into account its ingredients, I believe that its name is a play on an ‘health shake’. Changing health to Elf gives the shower gel the perfect Christmas twist. 😉

Elf Shake is an opaque, bright green shower gel. Its colour is almost identical to look at as the Glitch shower gel. On several occasions when I have been in a rush, I have mistakenly grabbed Glitch instead of Elf Shake and vice versa, not realising until after I had started to use it. They may look the same but really do have completely different, clearly identifiable scents!

Elf Shake has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency, it could easily be classed as a shower cream instead of a shower gel.

Elf Shake contains a long list of fresh ingredients including, mint infusion, apple juice, grape juice, kiwi juice, lime juice, sweet wild orange oil and ylang ylang oil. Lush’s website describe it as a ‘sour gumball smoothie’.

I cannot compare its scent to anything released by Lush before, the ‘gumball’ element of the fragrance does make me think of last year’s Jolly shower gel a little BUT it is such a small amount of likeness that I almost didn’t want mention it.

If you like fruity scents that aren’t citrus-thick, Elf Shake may be a good option for you. The kiwi and apple juice in it are what my nose picks up on the most. It’s hard to describe, to me it smells like one of those super-healthy, bright-green smoothies (the pleasant on the tongue kind).

It’s mouth-wateringly good, the apple brings a crispness to it and the mint infusion rounds it off giving it a candy-cane like Christmas edge.

When it comes down to their newly released shower gels, Lush have really outdone themselves this year. As I have said in my previous 2022 shower gel reviews, Lush’s shower gel selection was in desperate need of new life and 2022 has been a brilliant year for Lush shower gels. Elf Shake isn’t my favourite from this year’s new releases, but it’s in my top 3. My husband really likes it and claims that it is the best shower gel Lush have ever released.

The Elf Shake shower gel lathers up easily and a very small amount of it goes a long way. If the rumours are true and Lush UK won’t be selling the seasonal shower gels in bottles come 2023, opting for capsules that you burst just before using instead, I will kick up a stink.

The best thing about all Lush shower gels is how such a small amount goes a long way, introducing just capsules will be such a waste. Not to mention how difficult capsules are to use for customers with bad hands due to illness or injury like me. BUT back to the thankfully, bottled Elf Shake…

…Once out of the shower the Elf Shake scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it also does a really good job of cleansing your skin, leaving it looking and feeling brighter. All of the fresh juice in it really does have an effect on you.

Overall, I love the Elf Shake shower gel, I have my fingers crossed that Lush UK don’t ruin their best year for shower gels yet by getting rid of the bottled shower gels come January 2023. 🤞

Wally de Wasbeerhond Bath Bomb from Lush

At the time of writing this review, the Wally De Wasbeerhond Bath Bomb (Wally the Raccoon Dog Bath Bomb) is an exclusive product to Lush Netherlands and as far as I am aware, won’t be released anywhere else.

I was lucky enough to get a hold of 2 thanks to the incredible, Carina.

Carina is behind the Lush-Instagram-account @lush.scents. I couldn’t start this review without sending her a thousand thank yous for going out of her way to get these bath bombs over to me in the UK. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This adorable bath bomb with the face of a raccoon was created and released to raise money and awareness for a very important cause.

Did you know that the fur most commonly worn in Europe comes from the raccoon dog? Did you also know that very recently a number of clothing retailers were found out to be selling ‘faux’ fur items that were actually real fur as bizarrely, real fur is less money to produce? It’s disgusting and cruel. Animals shouldn’t be killed and kept in awful conditions for anything, let alone for fashion purposes.

The Bont voor Dieren are an organisation that are committed to working towards a European ban on the fur industry. All proceeds from the sales of the Wally De Wasbeerhond bath bomb minus VAT are going towards Bont voor Dieren’s fight. (You can read more about what they do here.)

From now on, I am going to refer to the Wally De Wasbeerhond bath bomb as just the Wally bath bomb just to make reviewing and reading this review a little easier for the both of us.

The Wally bath bomb shares its scent with Lush’s popular Daddy-O Shampoo as well as the Violet Cream bubble bar. Some of the ingredients included in the bath bomb are both violet leaf and Pakistan rose absolutes as well as bergamot and canaga oils.

Its scent is warm and delicious, it’s very similar to Parma Violet sweets!

As soon as the Wally bath bomb touches the water there is a gentle hiss of bubbles, at first the bubbles are plain white then as the bath bomb dissolves, they slowly become more and more pink.

Wally is a very slow dissolver, 10 minutes after putting it in the water mine was still fizzing away although much smaller than it started out.

Once it has fully dissolved, the water it leaves behind is a beautiful, light-pink and it feels silky-soft to touch. The violet within in it makes it such an incredibly relaxing bath. The Daddy-O scent is one of Lush’s most uplifting and inviting fragrances and is one I often find myself craving.

Other than the fact that this bath bomb is raising awareness and funds to help the fight against the use of animal furs in Europe, my favourite part has to be its scent. I don’t think I have ever owned a stronger scented bath bomb. I could even smell it as the postman handed me over the well-sealed box of them.

I actually left the closed box of them downstairs in my living room when I went up to bed that night. Amazingly I could still smell them while I lay in bed. After use, the scent also stays on your skin for the longest time after getting out of the bath too, I love it!

Lush really need to release more violet scented products, it’s a really underestimated ingredient that adds so much to a product’s final fragrance. It also seems to work in any format Lush put it in, be that a shampoo, bubble bar or bath bomb.

Why Lush haven’t made this bath bomb available to purchase in other European countries confuses me as I know it would sell brilliantly and would raise so much more money for the cause?!?!!

Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar from Lush

The Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar was an exclusive product included in the October 2022’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Inspired by the man-eating plant in the Little Shop of Horrors, the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar fits right into the boxes chilling-Halloween-theme.

Going forward, I am now going to refer to the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar as just Mean Green to save us both sometime. I do wonder if Lush give their products long names to not only make them stand out but to get on our nerves a little bit too. 😉

The Mean Green bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling Brightside bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Mean Green bubble bar may be on the smaller side but if I have learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush bubble bars that I have tried before now, size doesn’t dictate a bubble bars true bubble-potential…

The Mean Green bubble bar contains the following essential oils: lime, olibanum resinoid and neroli. It shares its scent with the Calacas shower gelMonsters’ Ball bath bomb and from this year’s Halloween line (2022) the Big Foot bath bomb.

Lush’s Calacas scent family is one of my all-time favourites, I can never get enough of it. Its lime led scent is both uplifting and zingy. Lush have combined oil of lime, neroli and olibanum to make the perfect pick-me-up scent. Bathing in a Mean Green bath will reinvigorate your mind, body and soul.

Some describe the Calacas scent as being very similar to the sweets, fruit pastilles. I adore its scent, Lush have yet to use it in a product I haven’t loved!

To use the Mean Green bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a small sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use Lush’s single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths.

I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Mean Green bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all. HOWEVER, I think I could have easily spread the bubble bar out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it certainly goes a very long way!

Once the bubble bar pieces are put under the running tap, it doesn’t take very long at all for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form. Underneath the blanket of bubbles the water turns a glorious bright green.

A Mean Green bubble bath leaves your skin feeling as soft as silk. After getting out of the bath its beautiful lime and neroli fragrance also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day. There’s no need to lotion up once you’re out of the bath either as it leaves your skin super-hydrated.

Overall, I am clearly head over heels in love with the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar. I am a little confused as to why it didn’t make it into the actual Halloween range this year, it’s a crime that it was only available in the Lush Kitchen Subscription Box!

Cobweb Bath Bomb from Lush

The main reason that I subscribe to the Lush Kitchen’s monthly subscription box is because sometimes it makes it possible for customers to get their hands on long-gone, discontinued products from Lush’s past.

I was therefore over the moon to see that the Cobweb Bath Bomb had made it into the Lush Kitchen’s 2022 Halloween box. Before this, I believe it had only ever been available as an online exclusive several years ago.

This smoky-grey, shimmery cobweb shaped bath bomb really stood out amongst the other treats in the 2022 Halloween box, I couldn’t help but buy another on eBay as soon as my box arrived. The Cobweb bath bomb shares its scent with the Black Pearl shower gel, (a product I promise to review soon).

The Cobweb bath bomb contains black sugar, chamomile blue oil, lavender absolute, olibanum oil and myrrh resinoid. It has one of Lush’s most relaxing scent families and is a good alternative if you’re getting a little bored of the heavily featured, Sleepy scent.

Like the Sleepy scent found in the likes of the Twilight and Sleepy bath bombs, the Cobweb bath bombs scent is rich with lavender, the Cobweb bath bomb however smells more herbal and has a generous helping of calming chamomile in it too.

If each word in the dictionary had its own fragrance, I’d like to believe that the word ‘relax’ would smell just like the Cobweb bath bomb.

At 110g the Cobweb bath bomb sits in my hand snuggly, it’s a little bit bigger than the I Want My Mummy bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb. It’s definitely too small to be a cobweb created by the huge Tarantula shower jelly from this year’s Halloween range! 😉

While it’s quite a plain bath bomb, the etched-in cobweb design makes it truly unique to any other bath bomb ever released by Lush. I love that the Cobweb bath bomb also has a slight shimmer to it. It’s just like a cobweb with drops of morning dew decorating it.

The photos I have included in this review do the Cobweb bath bomb no justice at all. While it doesn’t create bath art it does create the most mesmerising cloudy grey water, it reminds me of a water colour painting of a stormy or cloudy day. The Cobweb bath bomb is an incredibly quick fizzer and has completely dissolved within about 2 minutes of it being placed into the bath water. The water it leaves behind is so very sparkly. Like a star-spangled dusky nights sky.

As I said earlier, the Cobweb bath bomb’s scent is one of (if not the) most relaxing scent-family created by Lush. Laying back in its waters leaves me ready for a deep-sleep marathon. Lush really need to bring this scent back to life and throw it in to other product formats.

Lush, please bring back more old school products like this in the Lush Kitchen subscription boxes, getting to try such incredible Lush treasures is a real treat that makes my soul so very happy!

Toil and Trouble Shower Scrub from Lush

The Toil and Trouble Shower Scrub is yet another product from Lush’s huge 2022 Halloween line. Toil and Trouble isn’t just a shower scrub either; Inside the pot, sat right on top of the shower scrub you will also find 2 mini bat-shaped shower jellies too! See the series of photos below.

The Toil and Trouble scrub with jelly bats is the first of its kind so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pot. Toil and Troubles consistency is very similar to something in between the Magic Crystals and Mamma Mia shower scrub.

Its ingredients include lavender, peppermint, orris, patchouli, sage and plenty of fine sea salt. The sea salt is the magic ingredient that makes this scrub scrubby, it is the perfect go-to product to use when you’re in need of a full-body exfoliation.

At the time of writing this review, Toil and Trouble doesn’t share a scent with any other Lush products as it’s a brand new scent. It’s rich with lavender with a sage and peppermint twist, the patchouli in it adds an autumnal aspect to the scent, in some ways it reminds me of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb and in others like the Magic bath bomb.

To use, all you must do is scoop out a small amount of scrub from the pot followed by then working it into your skin just like you would a shower gel.

A small amount of the scrub goes a very long way but please feel free to overindulge! With any exfoliator, I recommend that you pay a particular amount of special attention to any dry patches of skin that you may have, such as your knees and elbows.

What’s different about the Toil and Trouble shower scrub in comparison to the other shower scrubs by Lush is the added extras, the mini bat jellies. Lush’s website states that the jelly bats are better to use over the scrub if you are looking for a more ‘gentle cleanse’.

The shower jellies lather up well and each have lasted me about 3 showers. I decided to use them after giving myself a full-body scrub, the skin on my arms, legs and chest have never felt smoother or cleaner.

Toil and Trouble is an excellent exfoliator, not only does it buff away all of your dead, dry skin it also leaves the skin that’s left behind super hydrated too. This is a huge bonus as exfoliating can be a little harsh on your skin.

For me personally, the scrubbier a shower scrub is, the better but I know super-scrubby isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Toil and Trouble is the perfect balance of scrubby and soothing in my opinion.

I will admit, I’m a little disappointed that Lush still haven’t made a shower scrub that shares its scent with the Calacas shower gel. Calacas is not just one of my most favourite Halloween scents it is one of my most favourite Lush scents of all time.

I am mentioning the Calacas scent because there is a similarly named, Calacas scented bubble bar from Lush called Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble. Sadly, the name is the only similarity between the 2 products. Both products have completely different scents.

While I am still hoping that Lush release a Calacas scented shower scrub I did really enjoy Toil and Trouble.

The extra mini shower jellies really added to the scrub and I can see Toil and Trouble being quite popular to Lush customers that don’t have bath tubs. Not everyone would have tried shower jellies before so adding them to this scrub is a good way to introduce them to shower-jelly-reluctant customers!

UFO Bath Bomb from Lush

The UFO Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. 

UFO is not the average type of bath bomb either, it has been specifically designed so that it can be used over 3 baths, although most people (including myself) use it all as one as it makes one truly epic Halloween bath!

The UFO bath bomb is 3 different products in 1, the photo above is all of the bath bomb pieced together. The photo below is the bath bomb with its lid off, inside of it are green bath salts. Photo 3 in this post is the bath bombs lid which can be used as a bath bomb on its own too.

As I said earlier, I used all 3 parts of this product in one bath starting with tipping the green bath salt into the bath water as the bath was filling up.

I was really surprised at how quickly the green bath salt changed the colour of the water, to be honest I was surprised it changed the colour of the water at all!

The bath water was a glorious neon green before I’d even finished running the bath, the bath salt also left the bath water so incredibly soft.

I then put the lid in the photo above on top of the yellow piece, placing it back together again before putting the UFO bath bomb into the water.

Upon putting it in to the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss as yellow foam bursts out of the bomb. As the yellow part of the UFO bath bomb is hollow it doesn’t take long for the blue lid-part of the bath bomb to come into contact with the water too.

Blue and yellow foam slowly starts to create swirling patterns on the water’s surface, the colours and bath art it created remind me of the now retired, Fizzbanger bath bomb.

After about 5 minutes, all of the UFO bath bomb has fully dissolved, and you are left with a darker green (but still neon green) bath water.

Now that I have talked through how I personally used the UFO bath bomb let’s get into its scent.

The UFO bath bomb has a brand new Lush scent, on Lush’s website they describe the UFO bath bomb as ‘lemonade-scented’. When I sniff it, I don’t get reminded of lemonade at all, I get a slightly more complicated scent. It’s a tart and almost smoky, lemon and blackcurrant like fragrance.

The UFO bath bomb contains coarse sea salt, blackcurrant absolute and Sicilian lemon and lemongrass oils.

Lush’s website also says that the UFO bath bomb contains popping candy which I believe is in amongst the green bath salt, although, my UFO bath bomb didn’t seem to contain any popping candy. There were no snaps, crackles, or pops for me.

As I said earlier, the UFO bath bomb takes approximately 5 minutes to fully dissolve, some other bath bombs that include sea salt such as the Geo Phyzz bath bomb have bigger chunks of salt so can scratch your bottom a little, UFO’s salt is however a lot finer and seems to dissolve very quickly!

Laying back in the bath water left behind by the UFO bath bomb is a true escape from the stresses of real life. I find UFO both uplifting and calming.

The bath water is silky smooth, and my skin laps it up, upon getting out of the bath my skin feels and looks brighter too. The scent doesn’t last on my skin very long.

UFO also isn’t the most hydrating of bath bombs, but it doesn’t leave my skin any dryer than normal.

This year’s Halloween range was Lush’s biggest yet and sadly I did overlook the UFO bath bomb over the likes of the Big FootScreamo and I Want My Mummy bath bombs, this wasn’t intentional, I guess one of them had to be the last one I used…

I think I left it until last as it’s so different from the standard bath bomb. We’ve had similar products such as the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb but nothing like this for Halloween.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the UFO bath bomb, I hope Lush introduce us to more products with colourful bath salts in, in the future. I think they really do help soften the water and make bath time a lot more fun. 😊

Cyclops Bubble Bar from Lush

The Cyclops Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line.

Living up to its name it of course has just one eye; This and its peculiar cone-shape make it a stand-out Halloween product that fits perfectly into Lush’s weird yet wonderful Halloween line!

The Cyclops bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling The Comforter bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Cyclops bubble bar may be on the smaller side, BUT if I’ve learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush products that I have tried, size doesn’t dictate the products quality.

The Cyclops bubble bar contains the following essential oils: buchu, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is fairly new to Lush and is described as a ‘passion fruit’ fragrance.

It is delicious, one sniff leaves me craving a tropical cocktail.

The fruitiness of it really lifts my mood and helps me relax – holiday mode activated! It is quite a powerful fragrance in comparison to the more gentle scent of Bubble Lugosi (this years other new Halloween bubble bar) but it’s a good powerful, I always struggle to describe scents but Cyclops literally makes my mouth water.

To use the Cyclops bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it and its single candy eye, into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths. I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Cyclops bubble bar, using less didn’t hinder the quality of it at all. Thinking back I could have easily spread it out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it goes a very long way.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form once you run Cyclops under the tap. Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a bright and super vibrant pink.

A Cyclops bubble bath leaves your skin feeling like silk. Its captivatingly-fruity-scent also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day once you’ve got out of the bath.

Overall, I am so pleased that Lush released the Cyclops bubble bar, I’d go as far as to say it’s one of my favourites of the new bubble bars from this year.

I can see this bubble bar selling very well and I’d love to see the same scent carried out in other product formats in the not-so-distant future. Hint, hint Lush; I’d be over the moon with a bath bomb or shower gel equivalent!

Screamo Bath Bomb from Lush

The Screamo Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. Any horror-movie-buff can see that it is clearly inspired by the film, Scream.

It’s a bright-white screaming face with dark blue holes for its eyes and mouth and a slight imprint of a nose too.

While I was sad that the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb didn’t make a return for Halloween this year I was happy to see a much bigger Halloween line with several new bath bombs thrown in, Screamo being one of them.

Last year Lush actually released a reusable bubble bar equivalent of the Screamo bath bomb but it didn’t sell as well due to it falling apart immediately after first use, sometimes even before you’d had a chance to use it like mine did, (the reason why I never got round to reviewing it).

Even with this at the back of my mind I was still keen to give the Screamo bath bomb a go.

The Screamo bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients, some of them include; benzoin resinoid, ylang ylang and almond essential oils. It has a rich and incredibly sharp, cherry-almond scent. It’s mouth-wateringly yummy!

At 120g the Screamo bath bomb fits snuggly in my hand it’s a little bit bigger than the Butterbear bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb.

With Screamo’s contrasting white and royal-blue colours I knew that the bath art it would create would be dramatic to say the least.

As soon as the Screamo bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of royal-blue foam. Blue bubbles slowly fizzle out of it as the bath bomb floats upon the surface of the water.

The photos I have included in this review do the Screamo bath bomb no justice at all. While the bath art it creates is mainly blue with small streaks of white and not a rainbow of different colours, it was still incredibly mesmerising to watch as it slowly spun around, swirling gently in the water.

Underneath the blue foam, the water turns a deeply inviting, royal-blue.

As the bath bomb slowly dissolves away the bath water becomes softer and softer, almost silky like. Screamo takes a good 10 minutes to fully dissolve taking a lot longer than the other new Halloween bath bomb, Big Foot.

As I said earlier, the Screamo bath bomb creates the most incredibly soft bathwater and I found that it left my skin feeling hydrated and silky-smooth too.

The bath bombs delicious cherry-almond scent is what really wins it for me though. That moreish scent can still be smelt on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day once you’re out of the bath too.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Screamo bath bomb, the bath art wasn’t a rainbow of colours but sometimes, less really is more!
