More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb from Lush

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb

The very first thing I noticed when I was presented with the More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb was its delicious scent. I’m a huge fan of anything pink so the fact its scent was what first caught my undivided attention says a lot about this bath bomb.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb is designed in the shape of a mini pink teapot, decorated with a pinch of blue cornflowers just like the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb, it’s very easy on the eye.

The cornflowers aren’t its only decoration either, the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains an Earl Grey tea bag in its centre, attached is its tea bag label that reads the bath bombs name.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains a long list of ingredients, these include bergamot oil, green tea absolute and neroli oil to name just a few. Its scent put simply is the most desirable  Lush scent I have ever come across.

A bold statement I know but it’s scent is just so incredibly moreish. There is just something about the blend of bergamot and neroli oil that is so addictive.

It has a pleasant fruity fragrance, sweet but subtle. It reminds me very much of the Chameleon bath bombs scent. I want to smell of it ALL the time.

If Lush do not recreate this bath bombs scent in to other product formats I’m going to be incredibly disappointed. After all, they did it for the Goddess bath bomb in a very short space of time, why not for this gorgeous bath bomb too? in my personal opinion this bath bomb is a thousand times better than the Goddess bath bomb, just saying…

Lush, I alongside many others within the community really want you to make this products scent into every format possible. PLEASE!!! – I can’t stress my need for this scent enough! As soon as the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of pink foam.

The bath bomb dances around the waters surface with the tea bags label in tow. The blue cornflowers become loose and spread out on the waters surface. For its size the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb does fizzle away quite quickly.

Once the bath bomb has almost dissolved the Earl Grey tea bag escapes from its bath bomb exterior, spouting a little stream of bright orange bubbles from it. Something I wasn’t expecting at all.

The water left behind by this bath bomb is the most beautiful shade of pink that I have seen from any Lush product before. It rivals the pinkness left behind by both the Think Pink bath bomb and Comforter bubble bar. The water is silky smooth and my skin laps it up.

The very best thing about this bath bomb is that its scent stays with you on your skin hours and hours after getting out of the bath. I won’t bore you any more by talking about its scent, all I have left to say is it was very hard to not eat myself after using it. 😉

My only complaint about this bath bomb is its staggering price, at almost £8 per bath bomb I can’t afford to stock up on these before Mothers Day is through. Something that has really struck a chord with me.

I don’t normally mention price in my reviews but for this one I feel I had to, I plead once more to Lush, PLEASE MAKE MORE PRODUCTS WITH THE MORE TEA AND SYMPATHY BATH BOMBS SCENT! and make sure they’re a little bit cheaper too please! 😋

The Comforter Bath Bomb from Lush

the comforter bath bomb

Lush’s Winter 2018 line included a brand new version of the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, it now shares its scent with the, The Comforter bubble bar instead of the Twilight bath bomb.

I was therefore very surprised to see that Lush had created another bath bomb with the, The Comforter scent as a part of their November 2018, 12 community bath bomb favourites.

This is in no way a complaint, although I wasn’t at all sure in regards to Lush changing  the Luxury Lush Pud‘s scent. After I had, had a chance to use it, I realised how good the Comforter scent was in a bath bomb format! 😍

The possibility of having yet another bath bomb with the Comforter scent made me very, very happy. If you’re not familiar with the Comforter scent I would describe it as a blackcurrant lovers heaven.

The Comforter bath bomb contains mood brightening bergamot, cypress and cassis oil. This well thought out blend of ingredients gives the bath bomb a very distinctive blackcurrant fragrance.

The Comforter scent is often compared to getting a big and very loving hug and that’s exactly how I feel when I am submerged in Comforter scented bath water!

As soon as the Comforter bath bomb hits your bath water an explosion of pink bubbles fizzes out of it. Within just a few seconds of it entering your bath, the water becomes silky smooth while slowly turning a deep, dark shade of pink.

Not only do you benefit from this bath bombs beautiful and very berrylicious scent, but hours and hours after using it, you also have soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too. Even the day after my skin still feels fabulous.

The Comforter bath bomb was a very slow fizzer, it danced around the waters surface for a good 10 minutes. Pink and white bubbles fizzled out of it while the bath bombs scent filled my bathroom.

The only negative thing I can mention about this bath bomb is the fact that a hard white chunk of it was still at the bottom of my bath when it was time to get out, it just wouldn’t dissolve. Not a huge issue really but I felt it was worth a mention.

Overall I was however very, very impressed with the, The Comforter bath bomb. Lush discontinued the Comforter shower cream a good few years ago now and using this bath bomb made me realise just how much I actually miss it.

Although at the time of writing this review the, The Comforter bath bomb is no longer available in the UK (it was a one off Lush Kitchen UK exclusive last November) it is available to purchase at the new Lush Harajuku store in Japan.

There are rumours that some of the bath bombs from the Harajuku store may be available to purchase elsewhere very soon, nothing has however been officially announced at the time of writing this review.

We will just have to keep our fingers crossed that the rumour is true and that the, The Comforter bath bomb will become readily available elsewhere in the not so distant future! 🤞

Melusine Bath Bomb from Lush

Melusine Bath Bomb

The Melusine Bath Bomb is probably my favourite out of the 12 community bath bombs that the Lush Kitchen released back in November 2018. Sharing its scent with one of my favourite releases that also came out last year the Avocado Wash shower gel, I was very excited to get a hold of its bath bomb equivalent.

Melusine is the French word for a fresh water mermaid, this caught my attention straight away as I have always been fascinated with mythology and mermaids in particular. When I first heard its name I thought it was going to be an adaptation of the Mermaid bath bomb, I was however very wrong!

Melusine has a very unique design, it is several different shades of green and yellow and has been made to look like it has fish scales.

Melusine also has a very generous helping of shimmering lustre that is made out of a mix of naturally-occurring minerals and seaweed (it’s not plastic!) the lustre in Melusine is a lot chunkier than what I’m used to from Lush too BUT it rinses away just as easily as the lustre in other shimmery products such as the Intergalactic bath bomb.

Containing bergamot, litsea cubeba, olibanum and sea salt Melusine is a treat for your skin, eyes, nose, mind and soul. If you normally grab an Avobath bath bomb for an energy boost then Melusine would really appeal to you.

Melusine’s blend of bergamot, olibanum and lemony litsea cubeba make for one of the most awakening bath bombs yet. Its scent is crazy refreshing, cheery and super-duper zesty. I just can’t get enough of it.

As soon as the Melusine bath bomb touches your bath water an eruption of green and yellow bubbles explode out of it. Its beautiful scent slowly fills your bathroom as it bobs around the waters surface.

Melusine’s presentation and scent aren’t the only things that impress me about this bath bomb either, the bath art it creates is exquisite, so much so that I couldn’t stop taking photos. Delicate swirls of green and yellow spiral out of it as it dances around, it really is mesmerising.

Inside the Melusine bath bomb, much like the Geo Phyzz and Big Blue bath bombs is a generous helping of sea salt. The sea salt makes the Melusine bath bomb particularly good at helping with any muscular pains you may have, all while also brightening the skin and boosting your blood circulation.

Normally the Lush bath bombs that contain sea salt often sink straight to the bottom of the bath tub slowly changing the waters colour from the bottom up. Melusine however surprised me by floating the whole time!

The Melusine bath bombs scent lasted through out the entire duration of my bath which really pleased my nose. Once I was out of the bath Melusines scent was also still detectable on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too.

Just a 15 minute soak in a Melusine bath leaves my skin feeling soft and leaves its appearance positively refreshed and hydrated.

The only thing I am unsure about in regards to the Melusine bath bomb is its hefty price, I understand ethically sourced ingredients cost a little more but for a single use product it is very expensive, for me this sadly makes Melusine a product I will only be using on special occasions.

Overall I am however very, very impressed with the Melusine bath bomb, I really do hope that Lush make it a permanent store product in the UK soon as it really is a brilliant bath bomb, I’d go as far as to say that it is actually high up on my list of favourite bath bombs!

Aubergine Bath Bomb from Lush

img_360

Lush’s 2019 Valentine’s line is the cheekiest to date and with it being so fruit orientated, it’s not very difficult to attain your required 5 a day! 😉

Alongside the Peachy bath bomb is its unofficial side kick, the Aubergine Bath Bomb, aka the Eggplant Bath Bomb – Both Eggplant or Aubergine are the exact same product, the big purple fruit just goes by a different name depending on where you are in the world.

img_4733

This tongue in cheek product has caused quite a stir within the Lush community, not only for its phallic shape but because it’s actually a very good bath bomb. The attention to detail and its design makes it very hard to believe that it’s hand made.

Just like the aforementioned Peachy bath bomb I was pleasantly surprised at how big the Aubergine bath bomb was, just a little bit bigger than my hand Aubergine is very good value for money, I couldn’t wait to see how it performed in the bath.

img_4730

The Aubergine bath bombs scent smells just like a Lush shop, the scent is actually called 29 High Street and was purposely designed to emulate exactly how a Lush-shop-floor smells.

I have yet to review any of the other 29 High Street scented products but the Aubergine bath bomb is definitely my favourite product format of the scent so far.

img_4734
The Aubergine bath bomb contains as its name would suggest, fresh aubergine – if it didn’t I know I’d have been disappointed so good move Lush! the aubergine has an abundance of skin loving vitamins and minerals, my skin lapped it up. I’d actually like to see it in more products.

Fresh aubergine isn’t the only ingredient in the Aubergine bath bomb either, bergamot, ho wood and tonka absolute also add different aspects to its beautiful, uplifting and fruity fragrance.

phonto-53

As soon as the Aubergine bath bomb touches the water it shoots out a burst of purple and then blue and green foam from both ends… Its colouring and the way it creates bath art reminds me of the very first version of the Northern Lights bath bomb.

The bath art was amazing, hence this review having so many photographs. I even managed to catch some footage of the slow popping bubbles.

phonto-54

What really impressed me with the Aubergine bath bomb was the colour of the water it left once fully dissolved. It’s unlike any bath water I have had before, sure the Blackberry and Jingle Spells bath bomb create beautiful purple bath waters BUT neither are on par with the Aubergine bath bomb.

Not only is the bath water the most inviting shade of sparkly, Cadbury-purple but the water is super soft too. I could sit in an Aubergine bath for hours. Very rarely do I like every bath bomb in a Lush line but this year I adore every bath bomb in the Valentine’s Day line. Lush, I hope this is a sign that 2019 will be your best year for products yet!

Peachy Bath Bomb from Lush

peachy bath bomb

2019’s Valentine’s Day range has been released and the Lush community couldn’t be more excited. The Peachy Bath Bomb is brand new this year and has caused quite a stir. Especially when placed next to the other brand new Valentines product the Aubergine bath bomb… Cheeky!

When I first had the Peachy bath bomb in my hand I was surprised at how big it was, for some reason I had envisioned that it would be much smaller. I can confirm that it’s more or less the average bath bomb size, much closer to the size of the Twilight bath bomb than to the Butterball one.

Peachy contains as its name would suggest, bundles of sweet, skin-softening, fresh peach juice. Alongside the peach juice, Peachy also includes grapefruit, davana, elemi and tagetes oils. The grapefruit, davana, elemi and tagetes oil  make a very unique and awakening blend.

Peachy’s scent is delicate but uplifting, zesty and wonderfully refreshing. In ways it is very similar to the scent found in the Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb, it however isn’t quite the same; Peachy’s scent is definitely not as citrus-orientated and sharp, The Peachy bath bomb also has a whole other layer of muskiness to it too, its scent is gentle as opposed to Never Mind the Ballistics scent being somewhat overwhelming.

Every time I look at the Peachy bath bomb I feel a little overwhelmed because of how pretty it is. The attention to detail in Peachy’s design hasn’t gone unnoticed by me, Lush have produced a long list of beautiful bath bombs prior to this one but Peachy bath bomb is special, it really does live up to its own hype as ‘peach perfect’.

I love how its peach colour isn’t all one shade of peach either. Although it’s clear to see that Peachy isn’t a real peach, the variation of its colour just adds to its charm, its detailing is so exquisite and it doesn’t look as if it was hand made at all.

As soon as the Peachy bath bomb hits the water there is a small explosion of foam, a small amount of green fizzes away from the bath bombs top as pinky-orange bubbles spill out from the rest of it.

Slowly it begins to spin, dancing around your bath water leaving pink swirls of colour as it goes. Another thing that surprised me with the Peachy bath bomb is that it was a really slow fizzer. I always love the slow fizzers, the pretty patterns they create in the bath seem to never end.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with peach coloured bath water. After I got out of the bath my skin felt fabulous, it was silky smooth to the touch and looked and felt as hydrated as if I’d just used a body lotion.

The scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too. Overall I am very impressed with the Peachy bath bomb, it has a beautiful and somewhat intricate design, the peachiest of scents and creates the prettiest bath art. I ordered several more straight after using one, I now can’t imagine a Lush Valentine’s Day line without it!

Princess Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

For Christmas 2018 Lush created 3 different Bomb Bombs; The Snowman, Santa and the Princess Bomb Bomb. The idea behind the bomb bomb is that you get 2 bath bombs in one character. One of the bath bombs is its head the other is its body, hence the ‘bomb bomb’.

Being honest as always, I will just come out and say what everyone else is thinking, this bath bomb won’t be winning any prizes for its looks anytime soon. Out of the 3 bomb bombs from 2018, Princess is by far the strangest to look at. As I have said in my other bomb bomb reviews, I feel as if all 3 of them were thrown together at the very last minute and I stand by my statement that each of them are just novelty products.

The Princess Bomb Bomb has a pink dress, a green face, an orange crown, yellow hair and 2 big vegan candy eyes. I hate to sound like a broken-record but Lush really could have done so much better with this bomb bombs design. The bomb bomb is such a good idea and concept, the only problem I have is that all I see when I look at the Princess Bomb Bomb is a frog in fancy dress! – I normally find some sort of charm in this type of ‘ugly’ Lush product, Princess is however an entity.

The Princess Bomb Bomb contains bergamot, cedarwood and ylang ylang oil. I was taken by surprise with this line up of ingredients. Due to its bright and mainly pink colouring I automatically assumed that the Princess Bomb Bomb would share its scent with the Snow Fairy shower gel. Yet again I was wrong.

Its scent is so far from what myself and the rest of the Lush community were expecting when the 3 bomb bombs were announced. It has sweet, subtle and musky floral elements to it and in my opinion is definitely a scent that would appeal to the older members of the Lush community in particular.

As soon as the Princess Bomb Bomb comes into contact with the bath water it begins to hiss. Yellow and pink bubbles fizzle out of it and spread across the waters surface. Just like the other bomb bombs, Princess dissolves fast, so fast that I didn’t manage to get any half -decent photographs of it in action.

What the Princess Bomb Bomb lacked in bath art was well made up for with how moisturised it left my skin. I did use both the head and body together (see photo above) some people have however spread their Princess Bomb Bomb over 2 baths, one day using the head and another day using its body.

I didn’t fall head over heels in love with the Princess Bomb Bomb for all of the reasons I have mentioned above. I do however hope that Lush use its scent in a future product as it is one that my nose rather enjoyed!

Santa Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

Santa Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb

Being honest as always I admit that I have left the reviews of the 3 different ‘bomb bomb’ bath bombs until last as I see them as just a novelty product. I’m just going to say what everyone else is thinking, this bath bomb won’t be winning any prizes for its looks anytime soon. I feel as if all of the bomb bombs this year were rushed, last minute products, they could have done so much better with all of their designs.

Out of the 3 ‘bomb bombs’ available I thought I would like the Santa Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb the least. For that reason I actually left the Santa Bomb Bomb as the last bath bomb from the entire Winter 2018 collection that I used.

This Winter Lush created 3 different Bomb Bombs. The idea behind them is that you get 2 bath bombs in one character. One of the bath bombs is its head the other is its body, hence the ‘bomb bomb’.

Ingredients wise the Santa Bomb Bomb has a little more to offer than the  Snowman Bomb Bomb.

The Santa Bomb Bomb contains both vanilla and cocoa absolute as well as bergamot oil. I couldn’t however understand why Lush were describing this bomb bomb as having a ‘chocolatey-sweet and uplifting scent’. To me in the shop it just smelt bland and as if the ingredients were all thrown in together at the very last minute.

This rushed assumption of mine was however undermined once I’d placed the Santa Bomb Bomb in my bath water. I used both the head and the body together, some people have however spread their bomb bombs out over 2 baths, one day using the head and another day using its body.

As soon as the Santa Bomb Bomb is placed in the water it begins to hiss, deep red bubbles explode across the waters surface. I wasn’t expecting the colour to be so intensely red. Even once the bath bomb had fully dissolved into the water the intensity of the red never faded. Unfortunately the Santa Bomb Bomb much like the Snowman was a very fast fizzer.

Considering I used both of the bath bombs together I was rather disappointed at how quickly they both disappeared. Some people do enjoy the fast fizzing bath bombs though as it means they can sit back and relax sooner.

What I wasn’t expecting from the Santa Bomb Bomb was its scent, it seemed to completely change once placed in the water. I could smell elements of the Butterball bath bomb in it which my nose approved of. A scent I wasn’t at all sure about at first actually turned out to be very nice!

Overall I think the Santa Bomb Bomb bath bomb was the best of the 3. I was really surprised by this as I honestly thought this one would be my least favourite of them all.

Although its scent was bland when in my hand, once in the water it really came to life. Its scent however seemed to fade within about 10 minutes (way before I pulled the plug.) Nevertheless a half hour soak in its waters did leave my skin feeling soft and well nourished.

There’s a little bit of me that still thinks I’d have much rather spent my money on 2 completely different Lush Christmas bath bombs such as the Christmas Sweater and Mistletoe. Or if Lush could have even made the head and bodies different scents so that more people would use them as 2 separate bath bombs?

The bomb bombs are a cute idea, I just think instead of the 3 bomb bombs released this year we could have actually been offered 6 individual bath bombs instead, widening the choice while also keeping long term Lushie’s happy with retro products that we haven’t been able to get hold of since the closing of the weekly Lush Kitchen. I won’t be sad if this bath bomb doesn’t make a return next year, I am however glad I got to try it.
