Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb from Lush

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb has both a cute design and back story. Maya, a 10-year-old customer sent a letter to Lush asking if they could make a bath bomb for her brother Toby. She said that Toby loves both cows and rainbows. Maya’s request was taken very seriously, so seriously that Lush did combine a cow with a rainbow and out of it, Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb was born!

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is designed in a very similar way to the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs with their semi-hidden rainbow-insides. Both have proved very popular within the Lush community so I suspect Toby’s Magic Cow to sell equally as well.

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb shares its scent with the Milky Bath bubble bar, it’s a very musky and gentle fragrance so a good bath bomb to go for if you like the Lush products with a more subtle and less in-your-face presence.

Ingredients wise, Toby’s Magic Cow contains popping candy for a bit of extra bath-time-magic, Brazilian orange and patchouli oils and plenty of skin softening coconut milk powder too.

Lush’s Milky Bath/Toby’s Magic Cow scent is admittedly a little strange as it doesn’t seem to match the ingredients list in the product. I’m so used to orange and patchouli being overly dominant ingredients in Lush products (such as the Karma Yantra bath bomb – both orange and patchouli oils feature in it too) that the gentleness of Toby’s Magic Cow’s scent really threw me.

The photo above is of Toby’s Magic Cow having a MOOch in my garden, I had way too much fun with Toby’s Magic Cow long before I even got around to putting it into my bath.

If you have Instagram I recommend that you have a look under the hashtags #TobysMagicCowBathBomb and #LushCommunity as it’s full of beautiful and creative photos of Toby’s Magic Cow – as well as much better cow puns than my own!

Toby’s Magic Cow is a good size, fitting snuggly into my hand. On first appearance it is pretty-much white all over although you can see the odd splash of colour around its edges. It’s a little bit bigger than the other rainbow-bath-bombs that I compared it to earlier, (Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit) – The rainbow aspect of Toby’s Magic Cow is also better hidden, that is until it gets wet…

As soon as the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of rainbow-colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues shoot out of it, leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath-bomb-foam.

Unlike the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs the colourful rainbow foam bursts out of the whole of the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, framing it with its rainbow streaks.

Its soft peppery scent slowly fills the bathroom as you sit back, relax and enjoy the colourful show it puts on.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, its scent isn’t one of my favourites from Lush but it is gentle enough to pair up with plenty of other Lush products if you want to make it a little more interesting.

It left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. The best part about Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is definitely it’s colours and the bath art it creates.

My photos as always, do the bath bomb no justice at all. It’s a beautiful product and wherever Maya and Toby are, I hope they get to enjoy their colourful creation!

The Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb from Lush

There have been several giant-sized bath bombs released by Lush over the last few years but none of them have been quite like the Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb. What sets this giant bath bomb apart from all of the rest is the inclusion of the reusable glow in the dark wax stars and moon.

The Sleeping Giant shares its scent with the Sleepy/Twilight range, it’s a massively bestselling Lush-scent, you are most likely to recognise it from the Twilight bath bomb and Sleepy body lotion. There are however many, many more products with the same scent currently available to try as well.

Inside the hollow Sleeping Giant bath bomb are lots of dry flowers. There’s sprigs of dry lavender, dry rose petals, dried pink delphinium petals, dried blue mallow flowers and my favourite, chamomile flowers too.

Being honest as always I don’t ordinarily go for the bath bombs with loose flowers in just because of the clean up afterwards, sometimes they are however worth using as a special treat. I only used all of my Sleeping Giant bath bomb together, petals-and-all as I wanted to get some good photos and also wanted to see it in all of its glory so that I could give you guys a fair review on it. 😊

Pushing the dry flowers to one side, the bath bomb part of the, The Sleeping Giant contains lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything including the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

After using the Sleeping Giant bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

The glow in the dark reusable wax stars and moon shapes are a very welcome extra from this bath bomb. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap (the Ghost in the Dark soap) before now but nothing like this that is completely reusable! To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The photo below is of one of them broken away from the bath bomb, I sadly couldn’t get a photo of them that showed just how bright they do glow. Like many other Lush products the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is one of those products you have to experience for yourself to really get a taste of how it is to use. Photos do not do it justice at all.

Overall I did really enjoy using the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb. As it is a giant bath bomb it is a little expensive but I am glad I tried it once as a treat. Would I purchase it again? No but only because I can now add the glow in the dark moon and stars to my bath with any Lush product I want now. I love that they are reusable!

The only issue I really had with the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is the clear up afterwards. Those dry petals get everywhere! Luckily I have a gadget that goes over the plug so none get stuck, blocking my bathroom pipes up. Scooping them up is easy enough at the end but not something I’d want to be doing after every bath.

I am always first to roll my eyes when people moan that bath bombs are messy so when I say the clear up was a little frustrating it really was. I am however glad I tried this bath bomb as a treat to myself. If I did have the opportunity to use it again I’d probably either take all of the dried petals out or only allow a few into the water.

#TBH365 Bath Bomb from Lush

The #TBH365 Bath Bomb is yet another wonderful, limited edition, charity bath bomb released in May 2021 by Lush. #TBH365 is an abbreviation of the statement, Teach Black History, all year round. This fundraising bath bomb is raising money for a social enterprise called The Black Curriculum.

The Black Curriculum was founded back in 2019, its main purpose is to address the lack of Black British history within the UK national curriculum.

All proceeds (minus VAT) made from the sales of the TBH bath bomb will be donated to The Black Curriculum.

The Black Curriculum deliver art focused Black history programmes and provide teacher training to facilitate social change. The programmes they deliver are suitable for all young people aged 8-16. Here is a direct link to their website if you’d like to find out more information. (The Black Curriculum)

I left school back in 2006 and honestly cannot remember studying any black history in length at all. I think we joined in with Black history month all of once and it was more or less just one or two lessons. As someone who has always been very interested in history (my history GCSE teacher hated me and would disagree, but I do generally enjoy the subject) I find this appalling.

If it wasn’t for campaigns like this, so many people do, would and will remain ignorant to the inexcusable fact that the teaching of Black history just isn’t given the right or in some cases any amount of coverage within schools.

For the purpose of this review, I am going to refer to the #TBH365 bath bomb as the TBH bath bomb from now on, just to make writing and reading this review a little easier. I don’t know about you but too many hashtags and numbers are making my eyes go funny!

The TBH bath bomb shares its scent with the Charity Pot/Grassroots Lush-scent-family and contains a carefully selected list of ingredients that work together impeccably. – Geranium, rosewood and ylang ylang oils alongside a generous helping of vanilla absolute means its fragrance is best described as a warm yet gentle-floral and vanilla rich affair.

The TBH bath bomb is designed to look like an open book, it is decorated with the, The Black Curriculum’s Logo and also includes an etched ribbon-bookmark and is a HUGE bath bomb! You can see just how big it is in the photo of me holding it. – I have actually seen several people snap their bath bomb in half using each piece in 2 different baths.

Sporting a beautiful blend of pretty colours, red, orange, yellow and white; I was excited to see what bath art the TBH bath bomb would create. Not only is TBH designed with bright, warm, and super inviting colours but it also has a very generous amount of hypnotizingly-sparkly gold shimmer in!

The bath art that the TBH bath bomb creates is truly stunning, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all. As the bath bomb is quite big, it takes a long time to fully dissolve BUT once you’re in the tub with it, it doesn’t take long for you to drift off into a state of pure relaxation.

Once the TBH bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright orange, shimmery-gold-water that I couldn’t help but swirl around a bit before I got out, the way it swirls around is just so incredibly mesmerising.

The bath bombs gentle scent remains on your skin for a good few hours after leaving the bathtub, it also left my skin feeling hydrated and appearing brighter and completely refreshed. Overall, I am over-the-moon in-love with the TBH bath bomb. It is made to raise awareness and funds for a brilliant cause, creates captivatingly beautiful bath art all while also smelling absolutely delicious! …Oh how I wish it wasn’t a limited edition product.

Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb from Lush

You may be awash with feelings of déjà vu when you look at the Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb for several reasons.

The first reason is how similar its design and colourings are to the Winter bath bomb favourite, Snowman Dreaming. The second and third being its mould is the exact same used for the Bouncy Bunny shower jelly and Spring Bunny bath bomb from Lush Easter lines of the past.

Ever since the aforementioned, Snowman Dreaming bath bomb was released a few Winters ago I have hoped Lush would do a similar bunny shaped bath bomb with the Bouncy Bunny scent and for Easter 2021, Lush did!

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a smaller sized Lush bath bomb, about the same size as an old-style Butterbear or old-style Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, it fits snuggly in my hand.

All good things come in small packages and what Follow The White Rabbit lacks in size it well makes up for with its scent and performance in the water.

Containing a mix of buchu, bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils, the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has a wonderfully refreshing scent that is deliciously moreish. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up bath product, search no more. The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb will put more than a spring in your step, a good soak in its citrus-waters will leave you cheery and uplifted.

As soon as the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb comes into contact with water you are greeted with an explosion of colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues shoot out of its left side leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath bomb foam.

Even though the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is small, it’s a reasonably slow fizzer. Giving you more than enough time to appreciate the kaleidoscope of colourful bath art it creates. The bath art is out of this world, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all.

I enjoyed using the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb so much that I immediately ordered 2 more straight after using it.

All good things must come to an end and once the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has fully dissolved, you are left with milky violet water that softens and lightly fragrances your skin.

Its scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. I hope that one day Lush can create a body spray of the Follow The White Rabbit bath bombs fragrance, it’s perfect for the Spring but its wonderfully refreshing scent would work all year round.

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a must have from this years Easter line, if it doesn’t return year in, year out Lush will be in my bad books!

Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb from Lush

The Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. As its name suggests, the Mother of Pearl bath bomb is designed to look just like a fresh water pearl. Every last detail of a pearl has been captured and crafted into this truly beautiful bath bomb, even its outer layer is a true representation of a pearls pearlescent finish.

The Mother of Pearl bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients; Lush have blended ylang ylang, vanilla absolute, benzoin resinoid, borage, hibiscus seed and organic rose hip oils to create a brand new scent family. Described as an ‘orchid-scented, delicate floral fragrance’ on Lush’s website I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one.

If you’re a fan of the softer, less in-your-face Lush products such as the Sakura or Avobath bath bombs then the Mother of Pearl bath bomb would be a good choice for you. It’s a very simple bath bomb but I’ve said this before and I’m going to say this again now, sometimes less really is more, especially when it comes to Lush.

What the Mother of Pearl bath bomb lacks in bath art, it well makes up for in how it transforms your bath water into a pool of silky soft, super creamy and milky coloured waters.

As soon as the Mother of Pearl bath bomb comes into contact with your bath water, it begins to slowly fizzle away. Inside the Mother of Pearl is a hidden layer of oils making this a real treat for your skin. Its gentle, orchid fragrance slowly fills your bathroom as the bath bomb dissolves.

Prior to using the Mother of Pearl bath bomb I wasn’t expecting much from it at all, I knew there wouldn’t be any bath art yet when I got round to trying it, I was still completely mesmerised by its beauty, I was just as captivated as I would be with a bright and colourful bath bomb.

There’s just something so refreshing and heavenly about the pearlescent white colour of the Mother of Pearl bath bomb.

Once the Mother of Pearl bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky, pearly-white bath water. The hidden oils and butters within it subtly soothe your skin, it’s not super oily either, skin-hydration wise it’s just right. The Mother of Pearl bath bomb is the perfect product to help your dry, Winter battered skin, adjust to the (not much warmer but warmer) Spring weather.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Mother of Pearl bath bomb, so much so I ordered a few more straight after using it. I’ll be very sad to see this bath bomb retire once the Mother’s Day holiday is over. I hope to see this little gem return for Mother’s Day year in, year out.

Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb from Lush

 

The Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb first featured in 2021’s Easter line, with it being my favourite colour, it was the very first product within the line that caught my eye. Bright pink with 3 fried eggs on its top-half as decoration, it’s hard to not be drawn to it.

Eggy Wegg is similar in design to the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb, instead of 3 clouds the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has its 3 fried eggs. Others have also compared Eggy Wegg to the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, while both have 3 unique decorations on its top half, unlike Eggy Wegg’s fried eggs, the golden stars in Shoot for the Stars are mini bath melts.

I don’t like the comparison of Eggy Wegg and the aforementioned Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, I find the added bath melts in a bath bomb really do make for a completely different bathing experience. If you’re like me and don’t always enjoy super hydrating baths, then Eggy Wegg is well worth a try.

The Eggy Wegg bath bomb includes ingredients that I wouldn’t ever imagine working together, strangely they do however work. Sicilian lemon and spearmint oil blend together to give Eggy Wegg a fragrance a bit like a big bag of pick-and-mix sweets.

Its scent has a tropical-fruit twang and also a generous helping of invigorating spearmint. Both scents round each other off, it’s a unique scent but one I’d love to see in other product formats in the future.

As soon as the Eggy Wegg bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a hiss of hot pink, fizzing bubbles. It doesn’t take long for the beautiful bath art to begin spilling out of the bath bomb, charging around your bath tub.

Pink, yellow and white swirls begin to dance their way around the water surface, creating the most beautiful swirling bath art. The photos I have included in this review do the Eggy Wegg bath bomb no justice at all.

The yellow and pink patterns created by Eggy Wegg clash perfectly, if you’re familiar with the Angels Delight bath bomb, expect the same type of stand-out bright yellow and warm pink bath art.

Once the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright pinky-orange tinted water. The water is silky-smooth and leaves your skin appearing and feeling softer and brighter.

For a bath bomb with a mix of such dominantly scented ingredients (lemon and spearmint) you’d expect its fragrance to be really strong on your skin, it is however a very subtle fragrance, not at all in-your-face. I could see the fragrance working very well in a body lotion format.

Overall I am very much in love with the Eggy Wegg bath bomb, it didn’t smell how I imagined an Easter product to smell but I think that’s what has made it so perfect. I’ll be very sad if this bath bomb doesn’t come back next Easter.

Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb from Lush

The Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. When I learnt that it shared its scent with my all-time favourite Lush bath bomb (So White 2016 edition) I ordered 2 as soon as they became available.

The Atom Heart Mother bath bomb is light blue in colour and decorated with 3 white clouds on its top part, a lot of people have been comparing the cloud design to the ‘Woody wallpaper’ used in Andy’s bedroom in the Disney film, Toy Story.

A lot of Lush customers have become rather perplexed at the point of discovering the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs peculiar name. I myself was very confused, as well as slightly annoyed with its name. As someone who never stops talking about Lush a name that doesn’t roll off of the tongue can be some-what bothersome! 😉

After a quick Google I learnt that Lush didn’t just throw 3 random words together; The Atom Heart Mother bath bombs name was in fact inspired by the name of Pink Floyd’s first number 1 album.

I personally couldn’t name or sing/hum a single Pink Floyd song even if my life depended on it. I am however confident that many older customers (or those with a wide range of musical knowledge) will get the reference immediately.

According to Google, the rock band came up with the albums bizarre name after coming across an article in a newspaper that was about a woman who had been fitted with a ‘nuclear-powered pacemaker’. Your guess is as good as mine as to whether that is true or not!

Now that the Atom Heart Mothers peculiar name has been explained some-what, I can begin to let you all know my thoughts on the bath bomb itself.

When my parcel containing the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs arrived, I was pleased to see (or should I say smell) that its scent was exactly the same as the So White bath bomb that I mentioned earlier. Containing a blend of rose absolute, bergamot, neroli and Brazilian orange oils the Atom Heart Mothers scent smells just like crisp, freshly sliced apple chunks.

As soon as the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb comes in to contact with your bath water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of small blue and white bubbles. After a minute or so pink bubbles begin to materialise from it as well.

It doesn’t take long for the pink bubbles to become the most dominant of the 3 colours spurting out of the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb. Slowly but surely pink, white and small flecks of blue-bubbly-foam make beautiful swirling patterns on the bath water’s surface as the Atom Heart Mother charges around like a miniature power boat.

Underneath the blanket of beautiful bath art left behind by the bath bomb is silky soft, lilac coloured bath water. Unlike some Lush bath bombs the Atom Heart bath bombs scent remains through-out the entire time you are in the bath. Once out of the bath the apple scent also remains on your skin for the rest of the day.

I always come out of an Atom Heart Mother bath feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is incredibly uplifting and always gives me a real happiness-boost. I can’t help but top up its scent with the Once Upon A Time body sprayAtom Heart Mothers body spray equivalent.

Any product that has the So White/Once Upon A Time fragrance will always be one of my favourites as, as I said earlier it is one of if not my favourite Lush scent family. Since taking the colour out of the So White bath bomb back in 2019 the Lush Community have been crying out for a colourful tantamount and the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb does not disappoint! 😊

4:20PM CBD Bath Bomb from Lush

The 4:20pm CBD Bath Bomb is a brand-new product and is the first of its kind from Lush. It was released back on Christmas Eve, 2020. CBD is short for cannabidiol, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants which I am sure many sceptical people will be pleased to hear, means that using this bath bomb will not get you high.

There has been a lot of research conducted around the use of CBD oil and it is said to have a long list of health-benefits. In particular it helps with stress management and those suffering with anxiety and/or sleep problems.

CBD has also been proven to help people like me, who suffer from medical conditions that cause wide-spread chronic pain. The very reason I first got into Lush Cosmetics was because I was looking for natural alternatives to prescription painkiller medications. With this in mind I of course ordered a couple of the 4:20pm CBD bath bombs without hesitation as soon as they became available.

The above photo shows you both sides of the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb, it has to be the oddest shaped bath bomb I have seen from Lush to date. One side of the CBD bath bomb is round and green, and the other side is baby-pink with a peculiar square and triangle crystal-like-design. The green side has 4:20 etched into it and the baby-pink side has the words LUSH CBD etched into it.

There are several unconfirmed theories behind how the 4:20pm bath bomb got its name, I thought it was because during the first UK lockdown that is when Mark, the co-founder of Lush Cosmetics liked to take his daily bath. My husband however says it’s to do with a ‘special time’ associated with getting high. A sort of secret code between groups of friends.

I think I prefer the bath time theory but both could be the reason behind its name. Lush do like to poke fun at certain things and are well known for being and saying things that are a little tongue-in-cheek.

As soon as the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb comes into contact with the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of green and light pink bubbles. It’s a fairly quick fizzer and doesn’t create any bath art. This gives you ample time to sit back, relax and reap the benefits of this carefully crafted bath bomb with no distractions.

The 4:20pm CBD bath bomb contains cannabidiol, patchouli and sandalwood oils, it scent is earthy, woody and calming. Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky soft, moss-green bath water. It left my skin looking brighter and more hydrated yet not at all oily.

Once I was out of the bath I did feel very relaxed, I wouldn’t say I was anymore relaxed than I’d normally be after just an ordinary Lush bath though. I will have to try the CBD bath bomb a few more times before I can be sure as to whether the cannabidiol had any real/extra effects on me pain-relief wise.

After my bath I did go on to have quite a stressful day and I admit I got through it better than I normally would have, whether this was to do with the lingering effects of the bath bomb will remain a mystery but I’d certainly be happy to use this bath bomb again either way. 😊

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas Bath Bomb from Lush

If you’ve spent your whole life looking for a star-spangled hippo to share a bath with then look no further as Lush are here to save the day!

The I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas Bath Bomb is brand new to this years (2020) Christmas line. It is inspired by a Christmas song of the same name that was released back in 1953. Up until the bath bombs release I actually hadn’t ever heard the song and had to look it up on YouTube, annoyingly it’s stupidly catchy… 😆

Like the Tick-Tock and Angels Delight bath bombs, I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas is another smaller bath bomb from this years Winter line. I can see why smaller sized bath bombs may not appeal to some customers but so far every bath bomb in this years line (big or small) has well and truly impressed me.

For the purpose of this review and to save both myself and you some time, I am now going to refer to the I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas bath bomb as just I Want a Hippo, Lush love to test my patience with super long names. I fear that if I continue to refer to it, by its full name I’ll never want to hear of or see a Hippopotamus ever again, star-spangled or not! 😂

I Want a Hippo shares its scent with the old school, Lush classic bath bomb, Space Girl. You will also recognise its scent from this years (2020) Halloween shower gel, Very Very Frightening. It’s a much loved scent within the Lush community and I’m so happy that Lush are finally using it in new products.

I have never been very good at describing scents but I am confident in describing I Want a Hippo’s fragrance as a soft, yet mouthwateringly moreish raspberry affair. Containing cold pressed raspberry seed, grapefruit and bergamot oils its scent is both refreshing and relaxing.

The light sprinkling of stars used to decorate the I Want a Hippo bath bomb make me think of the Jingle Spells and old style Northern Lights bath bombs, its colour however reminds me of the Blackberry bath bomb. I’m not sure if any of those bath bombs helped inspire the design of  the I Want a Hippo bath bomb but if you like any of them, I’m sure you’d enjoy I Want a Hippo too.

As soon as the I Want a Hippo bath bomb hits the water you a greeted with a gentle hiss of purple bubbles. Followed by gentle pops of the popping candy hidden within. The gold stars decorating the bath bomb slowly become loose scattering across the waters surface before dissolving.

The hidden popping candy continues to crackle away for a short while after the bath bomb has fully dissolved. The water it leaves behind is a beautiful shade of purple and feels like silk to touch. It isn’t as moisturising as I’m used to with Lush bath bombs but doesn’t dry my skin out or anything. A body lotion in its scent would however be very much appreciated, hint, hint Lush!

Overall I really enjoyed using the I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas bath bomb, it might not put on much of a show and is on the small side BUT its scent is delightful, I can still smell it on my skin hours after getting out of the bath. Well done Lush, this is yet another bath bomb I have to stock up on before the year is through… 🙈

NEW So White Bath Bomb from Lush

So White Bath Bomb NEW 2018.png

The So White Bath Bomb has had many visual updates, it started off as just a plain white sphere-shaped bath bomb with light pink insides (reviewed here) this version was released as a part of the Winter line consecutively for quite a few years.

It was then changed to have an apple-like-shape with a single green leaf sat on its top in 2016. This version of the bath bomb created some of the best bath art that I have EVER seen from a Lush bath bomb. (reviewed here)

I adored everything about the 2016 version of the So White bath bomb. Lush however decided to update it yet again just a few years later. Now it still shares the apple-like-shape from its previous version BUT it is completely white, even on the inside. The bath art has gone down the drain, literally…

The only thing that has stayed the same throughout So White’s many face lifts is its scent. The So White scent is in my top 3 favourite Lush scents, as sad as I was to lose what was one of my favourite parts of a much loved bath bomb I was happy I could still experience some of its wonder, minus the bath art.

As angry as I was at Lush for taking away a huge part of one of my all-time-favourite products I understood why they took the colour out of it. For starters it made the bath bombs name make more sense. It also became more desirable to customers who don’t like to bathe in lots of colour or glitter. Sometimes less is more.

With its deliciously-crisp, apple scent, the So White bath bomb smells just like a fairytale. Neroli, orange flower, Brazilian orange, bergamot and rose absolute are blended together to create one of the freshest fragrances Lush have on offer.

Seeing as the So White bath bomb doesn’t create any bath art I didn’t take many pictures of it once it was in the water. It’s a very slow fizzer and what it lacks in bath art it well makes up for with its scent and how soft and milky-white it turns your bath water.

I always come out of a So White bath feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is just so uplifting and gives me a real happiness-boost, helping to go about the rest of my day with a clear state of mind. I can never resist its scent.

After using it, its fairytale fragrance stays on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day, I however like the scent so much that I can never resist topping myself up with its body spray equivalent, the So White body spray.

Any product that has the So White fragrance will always be one of my favourites, if Lush had taken the colour out of any other bath bomb I doubt they’d have got away with it!
