Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb from Lush

Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb

Fans of the Roller bath bomb were thrilled when the Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb was first released last year (2019). Strawberries and Cream started its Lush-life as a Harajuku store exclusive.

Before long it then became exclusively available at Lush’s flagship store in Liverpool too. It is now currently at the time of writing this review available online and I believe in most Lush stores across the United Kingdom.

Sharing its scent with the aforementioned Roller bath bomb (which is arguably the most sought-after Lush product to ever exist) it has proven very popular. The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb contains geranium, bergamot and olibanum oils alongside cocoa butter and strawberry powder.

Strawberries and Creams captivating scent is all down to the carefully selected ingredients mentioned above. the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb smells just like a bowl of fresh strawberries that have been drizzled in a very generous helping of vanilla cream.

Lush seem to have taken inspiration for the design of Strawberries and Cream from the likes of the Golden Pear soap and bath bomb. Not to be confused with a Lush bubbleroon either, 2 sides of this juicy-red-strawberry-shaped bath bomb are sandwiched together with what I believe to be cocoa butter.

I’m not quite sure why Lush decided to do this, I’m however not complaining as this simple addition adds a whole new level of hydration to a bath bomb!

The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is approximately the same size as the palm of my hand (not including fingers). Once in the water it instantly begins to fizzle away, sending green and red bubbles across the waters surface. The green fizz doesn’t last very long but the red holds out until the very end.

If you’re looking for bath art then Strawberries and Cream might not be the best choice for you as it does dissolve very quickly. Regardless of its lack of bath art, Strawberries and cream makes your bath water incredibly soft, so much so that whenever I use it I never want to get out of the bath let alone pull the plug.

Once you are out of the bath its scent although much more subtle on your skin, lasts on you for the best part of the rest of the day.

Although the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is no where near as amazing in the water in comparison to the Roller bath bomb,  I do really enjoy using it. Especially when I need to have a quick bath rather than a long soak.

Overall I really do like the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb. It hydrates and softens my skin so well that I do not need to moisturise after using it. Another great benefit if you’re in a rush.

I can totally see and smell exactly why Lush have decided at the time of writing this review to have it as a main line product, it’s berry, berry good! 🍓 😉 ❤️

Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bath Bomb from Lush

Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bath Bomb

The Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bath Bomb was first introduced to the Lush Community as one of the Harajuku, Japan store exclusives. It then went on to be an exclusive at Lush’s flagship store in Liverpool too. At the time of writing this review, it is now also available from Lush’s UK website and in selected UK stores.

Unfortunately, to make room for new products some have to eventually be discontinued. With Lush UK’s HQ now refusing to use their social media channels, it has made it very difficult to sort the fake news from the cold, hard facts BUT now that the ’30 years of the bath bomb’ celebrations are nearing an end, Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds is one of the bath bombs rumoured to be leaving.

If true, whether or not the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bath bomb will still remain in the Liverpool and Harajuku stores is another fact that has yet to be confirmed.

If you’re a frequent Lush customer you may recognise that there is also a Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar.

The bubble bar equivalent of the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bath bomb (which for the purpose of this review I am now going to name just ‘Blue Skies’ to save us both a bit of time! 😉) is a staple Lush product. Available online and in stores all over the world, it is hugely popular. The introduction of a bath bomb that shares its same scent therefore sent a ripple of excitement through the Lush Community.

The Blue Skies bath bomb shares its cloud/berry-like shape with the, The Comforter and the updated version of the Blackberry bath bombs. Containing patchouli, frankincense and cinnamon leaf oil the Blue Skies bath bomb is described on Lush’s website as ‘peace-inducing’.

I find it really difficult to describe scents, the most prominent ingredient in the Blue Skies bath bomb just like its bubble bar equivalent is the patchouli. As a huge fan of both frankincense and cinnamon I am a little disappointed that my nose can’t detect either ingredient, if I had to describe the bath bombs scent with just one word I would choose peppery.

As soon as the Blue Skies bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, blue and white froth bursts out of the bath bomb as its peppery scent fills your bathroom.

Blue Skies much like the aforementioned The Comforter bath bomb is a very slow fizzer. Although the bath art wasn’t anything to write home about, I did get a few photos of the pretty bubbles that the bath bomb created as it slinked around my bath.

Even once Blue Skies is in the water my nose still cannot detect the frankincense and cinnamon leaf oil, my body does however feel the cinnamons skin warming properties. A good long soak in a Blue Skies bath left me feeling chilled out and my muscles completely relaxed.

I didn’t find the Blue Skies bath bomb particularly moisturising but my skin did appear brighter once I was out of the bath.

Overall I do enjoy using the Blue Skies bath bomb, its scent family just isn’t a favourite of mine. Patchouli is always a Russian-roulette-ingredient for me as sometimes it does trigger my migraines. Blue Skies bath bomb however didn’t!

Pushing its scent aside, I do always feel completely relaxed after a Blue Skies bath. If you love the peppery Lush fragrances then I’d definitely recommend giving this bath bomb ago.

Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb

If like me you thought that we had seen the last of the ‘bomb bombs’ when 2018’s Winter line retired then you were wrong. Very, very wrong. 2 brand new bomb bombs have made an appearance for Lush’s Spring 2019’s line and being honest as always, I actually think that they are both much easier on the eye than the original three, dare I say the Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb is in fact quite cute…

The idea behind the Lush bomb bombs is that you get 2 bath bombs in one. One of the bath bombs is its head the other is its body, hence the ‘bomb bomb’. Ingredients wise the Lamb Bomb Bomb contains peppermint oil and chocolatey cocoa absolute, its scent is very similar if not the same as the Thundersnow bath bomb that came out a few Winters ago. A scent I have always enjoyed as it reminds me of a yummy mint chocolate desert!

I decided to use the head and body of the Lamb Bomb Bomb in just the one bath (see below photos) some people however spread their bomb bombs out over 2 baths, one day using the head and another day using its body. There’s no right or wrong way to use it, the choice is entirely yours.

As soon as the Lamb Bomb Bomb hits the bath water a burst of white and blue foam fizzles out of it. Much like the aforementioned bath bomb Thundersnow, Lamb Bomb Bomb creates quite a creamy-thick layer of foam that floats on the water surface. It actually reminds me of a jelly bath bomb ever so slightly, the foam doesn’t however last as long as jelly and slowly fizzles itself away into the bath water, it’s just like a squirt of cream that slowly melts into your cup of hot chocolate.

Once the Lamb Bomb Bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky smooth, very light, creamy blue (almost white) bath water. I found the waters incredibly moisturising, it was nice to use a bath bomb that was this moisturising without chunks of oily butter in it like the Yog Nog bath bomb.

Lamb Bomb Bombs basic and very gentle list of ingredients left my skin fabulously hydrated and soft, I was very impressed and have since used another Lamb Bomb Bomb’s head and body separately (in 2 different baths) and my skin was left just as satisfyingly smooth to the touch.

Just like the Princess, Snowman and Santa Bomb Bomb‘s the vegan friendly, candy eyes are the last part of the bath bomb to melt away; Which might I add is just as creepy as it is charming. As a matter of fact, I actually really enjoyed using the Lamb Bomb Bomb bath bomb, I have warmed to the bomb bombs ever so slightly thanks to this ones design, it doesn’t look like it was all thrown together at the very last minute like the aforementioned bomb bombs released before it.

I am actually quite looking forward to reviewing the next bomb bomb after writing this review. It’s always double the pleasure when you love a bath bomb that you thought you wouldn’t like very much at all. Although we have the store-staple Intergalactic bath bomb when we fancy a bit of cooling peppermint, Lamb Bomb Bomb made a very nice minty infused change!

Mum, Look What I Made For You Bath Bomb from Lush

Mum, Look What I Made for You Bath Bomb.png

The Mum, Look What I Made For You Bath Bomb is yet another beautiful product that Lush released as a part of their 2018, Mother’s Day line. With this bath bomb I think Lush have captured the cutest and most innocent of concepts perfectly. Designed to look just like one of those pictures you painted for a loved one as a kid, it’s the perfect gift for anyone you look up to, not just your mum.

Although I quite enjoyed last years flower-shaped bath bomb the Ups-A-Daisy, there’s just something about Mum, Look What I Made For You that is that little bit more desirable to me.

If you were a fan of the Cherryish body scrub from this years Valentine’s range, then it is very likely that you’d enjoy this bath bomb too. Its soft cherry-sweet fragrance is very much like the Cherryish’s scent. This surprised me a great deal as when I very first learnt of Mum, Look What I Made For Yous ingredients I would never have associated the 2 products together.

As well as having a wonderfully warm and inviting scent that rivals the likes of the Comforter bubble bar, the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb is also quite easy on the eye. As soon as the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of colour. It’s not quite on par with the colours created by the, The Experimenter bath bomb but is close enough to impress the likes of me. Out of it bursts yellows, oranges, pinks and blues.

It’s scent although gentle, lasts the whole bath. It is a fairly slow dissolver too meaning it puts on an incredible show, the colours and swirls of the bath bomb in the water creates bath art galore. The photographs I have captured of the Mum, Look What I Made for You in action does the bath bomb no justice at all. You really do have to experience it for yourself to see it’s true potential.

As well as the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb being visually pleasing it also has skin-soothing properties. Used alongside the Cherryish body scrub you’ll be left with hydrated, smooth and beautifully buffed skin. Even without the use of the Cherryish body scrub, I find that the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb just on its own is a real treat for dull, tired skin.

After a good soak in a Mum, Look What I Made For You bath, your skin is left delicately fragranced with its warming cherry-sweet scent for the best part of the next day. At first I wasn’t 100% sure that I liked the scent but after falling in love with Cherryish I couldn’t resist buying a couple of the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bombs and I have no regrets on stocking up on it either!

Man in the Moon Bubble Bar from Lush

Man on the Moon Bubble Bar2The Man in the Moon Bubble Bar is the Lush product I have been wishing for ever since I took my very first sniff of the Calacas shower gel. I don’t think I have ever been as excited finding out the scent of a Lush product before. The Calacas scent is one of Lush’s most popular, so much so that it completely baffles me as to why Lush hadn’t brought a Calacas scented bubble bar out long before now.

Much like the new Plum Snow bubble bar, the Man in the Moon Bubble Bar is a lot bigger than I had anticipated, a bigger sized product always pleases me as I love getting more for your money, who doesn’t? Another thing that has impressed me in regards to the Man in the Moon bubble bar is how a little amount of it goes such a very long way.

As time has gone on, Lush seem to have perfected the skill of making their bubble bars go further and further, with most of the new bubble bars it is now possible to use them several times without any drop in its quality or performance.

Lush have thought very hard about the design of this bubble bar. Made to be a full moon with a face it has some rather distinguishing features such as its Victorian era moustache and monocle. The whole idea behind the bubble bar is said to be inspired by a creepy silent-film made in France back in 1902. If you take on board what happened in said the short film you’d know that the monocle is actually a rocket that has landed in the ‘man in the moons’ eye, eeek!!!

The Calacas scent is refreshing, uplifting and zingy. Lush have carefully combined oil of lime, neroli and olibanum to make the perfect pick-me-up bubble bar, bathing in a Man in the Moon bath will reinvigorate both your mind and body. Some people describe the Calacas scent as smelling just like fruit pastille sweets, I can see where they are coming from but its scent is so much better than just fruit pastilles. I adore its scent and it works beautifully in all formats that Lush have released so far. *prays for perfume*

I’ve heard a few people say that the Man in the Moon bubble bar smells identical to the discontinued Oxford Street exclusive, the Man in the Mushroom Mask. My nose however doesn’t pick it up at all. I personally think that the Man in the Mushroom Mask smells like almonds and caramel, which is far from the fruity lime that Man in the Moon’s scent offers. Regardless, scents can come across differently to different people so I am not saying I’m right and they’re wrong, both products scents are favourites of mine but for me the Man in the Moon bubble bar is Calacas scented through and through.

As mentioned above, the smallest amount of the Man in the Moon bubble bar goes a very long way. I can get 4 more than generously bubbled baths out of just the one bubble bar. I’d go as far as to say that spreading it over just 4 baths is in fact a little wasteful, that is unless you feel like overindulging in bubble bath heaven. Which is something I am more than happy to do with any Lush product that is Calacas scented.

Underneath the blanket of bubbles is lime green, silky smooth water. My skin always looks and feels it’s best after a long and relaxing soak in a Man in the Moon Bath. My most favourite thing about the Man in the Moon bubble bar is how its scent stays with you so long after using it. Paired with the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb (which also shares the Calacas scent) makes the most perfect bath. Just writing about the combination is making me want another Calacas themed bath right now… I am obviously head over heels in love with this bubble bar and it is one I will most definitely be stocking up on before winter is through.

One Eskimo Bubble Bar from Lush


When I heard that Lush had released a bubble bar that shared its scent with the Christingle body conditioner I couldn’t help but get excited as in the Summer, Christingle is my go-to-product. Although Christingle is typically sold as a part of Lush’s Winter line, it is perfect to use during the sweltering months of Summer.

The One Eskimo Bubble Bar is currently only available to purchase in a small selection of stores, the below photo was taken at Lush’s flagship store in London, Oxford Street and is also where my current stash of them came from. This gorgeous bubble bar’s scent is identical to the super stimulating Christingle body conditioner and this Summer it has been flying off of the shelves.


The One Eskimo bubble bar contains a long list of menthol-fresh ingredients. Peppermint spearmint and grapefruit oil are blended together to awaken and stimulate your body, this mix is perfect for cooling you down while also refreshing your body, mind and soul.

At first I was unsure about it as, as explained in my Christingle body conditioner review, the body conditioner made me feel so cold after using it, I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to use its bubble bar equivalent as it would feel like having a bath full of ice cubes. Although this would be desirable for some with the current Summer heat, just the thought of a bath full of ice cubes is hell on earth for me!


Luckily bathing myself in a One Eskimo bath didn’t leave my skin tingling and icy in the same way as the body conditioner-equivalent does. In fact, I think I favour the One Eskimo over the Christingle body conditioner. I am extremely sensitive to temperature due to suffering with several different medical conditions. This means I can’t always regulate my bodies temperature in the same way as others, additionally if I am too cold it makes my joints hurt and if I am too hot it makes my joints swell up while also causing me to feel nauseated.

A hot One Eskimo bath is the perfect balance for me. The heat of the water relaxes my muscles while the peppermint helps to refresh my skin leaving me cool and refreshed all at the same time. Peppermint is also my go to essential oil if I am ever hit by a wave of nausea. Pushing all of my personal needs aside I can still see this product as being loved and more than useful by many other customers with both the same and different needs from me.


A very small amount of One Eskimo creates mounds and mounds of fluffy white bubbles, it’s a very cost effective bubble bar which is always a product-perk that I enjoy and look out for in Lush. After all, who doesn’t like getting more for their money?

When One Eskimo is used it turns the water underneath the blanket of bubbles a beautiful and bold shade of blue. Products with peppermint in often leave my skin in need of some extra moisture after use, One Eskimo however leaves my skin soft and fabulously well nourished, just a 10 minute soak leaves my skin brighter and so very refreshed.

Rumour has it that the One Eskimo bubble bar will be making its way to all stores and online when the 2017’s Winter line is released. I really hope this is true as I love this bubble bar, it’s a breath of fresh air and is just what Lush needed to add to their ever growing collection of amazing cosmetic products!

Bubble Spinner Reusable Bubble Bar from Lush

Bubble Spinner Bubble Bar

When I first see the Bubble Spinner Reusable Bubble Bar on Instagram I wasn’t going to get it as I was determined to start saving some money for when Lush release their Christmas line later this year. Once I learnt of its ingredients I however changed my mind and grabbed 3. With lime, grapefruit and lemon oil in the Bubble Spinner was right up my street, there’s nothing I like more than a bright and cheery citrus scented bath product.

The Bubble Spinner was designed with a fidget spinner in mind, I can’t be the only person in the world that wasn’t entirely sure what a fidget spinner is up until very recently? Just in case you are as clueless and uncool as me I took the liberty of finding out the definition of what it is. According to the online Collins English Dictionary, a fidget spinner is a small toy comprising of two or three prongs arranged around a central bearing, designed to be spun by the fingers as a means of improving concentration or relieving stress. – So now you know let’s get on with the review…


The Bubble Spinner is a reusable bubble bar, it has a wooden pin in it that allows the bubble bar part of it to spin either in your hands or as the tap water hits it, kind of like a water mill. It has 3 spokes one pink, one blue and one yellow, these are all connected together by a white inner ring.

Reusable bubble bars are slightly different to the normal bubble bars, you don’t have to break a reusable bubble bar up to use it, you simply run it under the tap to create bubbles. Once you have the desired amount of bubbles you then put it somewhere it can dry off, ready for the next time you want to use it. As the Bubble Spinner is submerged with water running out of the tap, its scent really hits you. Anyone who has read any of my previous reviews will know that I have a soft spot for the citrus scented products. To me, Bubble Spinners scent is the perfect mix of the Dragon’s Egg and Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb.


Sometimes I find that the reusable bubble bars don’t create quite as many bubbles as the ordinary ones do, I found that with Bubble Spinner this wasn’t the case. I got 3 very generously bubbled bubble baths out of just one Bubble Spinner. Another trait that reusable bubble bars have is that they don’t create as vivid colour water, this wasn’t really a huge issue with me for Bubble Spinner as the scent won it over for me.

Another thing that impressed me about the Bubble Spinner was that its scent lasted throughout the whole bath. It also lasted on my skin although once I got out of the bath my skin wasn’t left as well nourished as I’d have liked, if the Bubble Spinner was just a little more moisturising I’d go as far as to say that it would be one of my favourites.

I know Lush are notorious for bringing out copious amounts of citrus scented products and because of this, some fans get frustrated. It however wasn’t until I started using Lush that I realised there are so many variations of citrus scents. The Bubble Spinners scent has really, really impressed me and it is probably my favourite of the reusable bubble bars that I have tried so far. If you’re looking for a product that will brighten your mood while also waking you up then I’d definitely recommend giving this bubble bar a go.

Gingerbread House Bubble Bar from Lush

gingerbread-house-bubble-bar-2Why Lush no longer release this as a staple Winter bubble bar I will never know.

I admit that I  throw the ‘favourite’ word around a lot when it comes to Lush, the Gingerbread House Bubble Bar is however truly one of my all time favourites and for so many fantastic reasons.

The scent of this bubble bar is delicious. As soon as the hot tap hits the bubble bar its spicy winter scent intensifies, if you thought the bubble bars fragrance was good in your hands just wait until it’s in your bath. As soon as it comes in contact with the tap your whole bathroom begins to smell like the most mouthwatering gingerbread biscuit, I have never come across a Lush product that smells more inviting.

I knew before I had even got into a Gingerbread House bubble bath that it was a very special product that would be more than beneficial for my tired mind and aching body.


I assume that a big reason as to why they don’t make this bubble bar into a permanent Winter fixture is because it takes quite a lot of work to hand make. The effort put into making it is all totally worth it though as it looks more than good enough to eat.

I’ve never wanted to eat a Lush product so much, this obviously isn’t advisable, I’m afraid you have to get  your sugar rush elsewhere… HOWEVER, if you’re on a diet after eating too much over Christmas, having a Gingerbread House bubble bath might just take the edge off of your cravings!

I’d go bankrupt if they brought this products scent out in other formats. I suffer with widespread, chronic pain and the Gingerbread House bubble bars ingredients are perfect for soothing my muscles.

The combination of ginger, lemon and cinnamon are great for lulling you into a more relaxed state of mind, while you lie back enjoying the relaxing scent, it also works its magic on you tired and achy muscles. I just can’t put into words how great it feels to slip yourself into a Gingerbread House bubble bath. Combined with the added heat of the bath water, a Gingerbread House bath is quite literally my idea of heaven.


The best news about this bubble bar is that a little amount goes a very long way. One bubble bar can be cut up and would easily last over 4 baths, all of which would have a more than generous amount of bubbles.

This bubble bar not only helps soothe your muscles and mind but also refreshes and brightens your skin. During the Winter my skin can become quite dry and sore, a soak in a Gingerbread House bubble bath however takes all of this away.

When I get out of the bath my skin feels soft, hydrated and the warming, sweet scent stays with me even hours and hours after getting out of the bath.


I don’t think I could ever get sick of this bubble bar, I am praying that Lush one day decide to bring its scent out in other formats as it is such a beautiful and warming scent that helps me relax within minutes of sinking into it.

There isn’t one bad thing I can say about the Gingerbread House bubble bar, well there’s maybe one thing… I can’t help but be confused as to why its scent is not used in any other products? I don’t think I could handle the excitement if they made a shower gel or bath bomb equivalent, bath time would never be the same again!

Happy Pill Bath Bomb from Lush


The Happy Pill Bath Bomb is one of the biggest bath bombs (that isn’t a giant version of a smaller one) that I have seen Lush create. They are huge, every time I pick one up I still can’t believe its sheer size.

The Happy Pill bath bomb is one that I would describe as basic. Some people like bath bombs with lots of colour, bubbles and popping candy, some however like their bath bombs to be gentle and not so theatrical.

Basic bath bombs aren’t bad bath bombs. I like that some are simple, I also like that some are colourful and fizzy. It’s nice to have a choice, I love that Lush have such a variety of products on offer.

What Happy Pill lacks in bath-time-theatrics, it well makes up for with its light and fruity scent.

The Happy Pill bath bomb shares its scent with 2 Lush fragrances. The orange half of the bath bomb shares its scent with the, The Olive Branch shower gel and the yellow half shares its scent with Happy Hippy shower gel.

Some Lush fragrances do really work well together, it wasn’t until I tried the Happy Pill bath bombs that I realised this though.

Not all Lush scents can be paired up together but Happy Hippy and The Olive Branch are the most perfect of partners.

(Top row from the left; Happy Hippy Shower Gel, Happy Pill Bath Bomb. Bottom row from the left; The Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar, Pop in the Bath Bubble Bar and The Olive Branch Shower Gel)

Once placed in your bath water the Happy Pill slowly starts to froth. As it slowly fizzes away, the bath bombs scent fills your bathroom with its delicate fruity fragrance.

The water immediately becomes silky smooth and is incredibly hydrating for your skin.

It moisturises and refreshes my skin so well, after I have used one I feel brighter and more energised for the rest of the day.

Using a Happy Pill bath bomb is always a pleasure, I hope that they decide to bring out some more Happy Hippy scented products as I’d love to try some more of them on their own too.

Over and Over Bath Bomb from Lush

The Over and Over Bath Bomb was one of the few exclusive products available to buy at the Lush showcase back in September.

I was incredibly flattered to be invited to the biggest Lush event that has ever happened.

It really was an amazing day, everywhere I looked made my head spin with excitement, it was such a fantastic experience and one I will never, ever forget.

I will never be able to express my full gratitude to the Lush Kitchen for sending me the invite. All I know is, it was FABULOUS and I’d do every last bit of it all again, heatwave and all!


At the showcase there were so many new products that I didn’t even realise that the Over and Over bath bomb was different from the Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb. When I did realise I decided to grab another. Everything else I got only one of.

When I got home and had some time to process all that had happened at the showcase, as well as the hype around the Over and Over bath bomb, I was ridiculously smug that I had bought 2!

Just like the legendary, mass hysteria creating Roller bath bomb, Over and Over has caused quite the stir within the Lush community. I thought at the time of the showcase that it would be available in all stores or at Oxford Street throughout the winter but at the point of writing this it has only ever been available to the general public at the 2016 Lush Showcase.

It was however announced last week that the Over and Over bath bomb would be released in the Lush Kitchen on Thursday the 10th of November 2016, I will most certainly be ordering some and if you want to as well, get online on the above date ASAP as I can guarantee they will sell out within minutes.

From Left to Right, Never Mind the Ballistics, Roller and Over and Over bath bomb

Designed in the same way as the Roller and Never Mind the Ballistics, the Over and Over bath bomb is in fact half bath bomb, half bath melt.

The top half of an Over and Over bath bomb is dipped in a waxy-like orange melt leaving the rest of it exposed, the rest is yellow in colour.

Unfortunately many of the meltable products suffered at the creative showcase because of the September heatwave. It was sad to see but the two Over and Overs that I picked up (apart from looking a bit disheveled) still worked ok in the bath.

Once placed in the bath water the Over and Over bath bomb creates a mass of thick and fluffy yellow foam. It soon begins to dance around the bath water, rolling and moving in exactly the same way as the Roller bath bomb does.

As the foam hisses away, floating on top of the bath water the Over and Over scent really hits you.


It isn’t long until you see that the Over and Over bath bomb has pink insides. The yellow, orange and pink colour spilling out of the bath bomb clash so well together, creating mesmerising bath art that you just can’t take your eyes off.

It’s hard to believe that so much vivid colour could come out of a cosmetic bathing product.

Performance wise, the Over and Over bath bomb could easily be confused with the likes of the, The Enchanter bath bomb.


The Over and Over bath bomb has a lemony-lime-citrus scent that reminds me of Lemsip.

I didn’t realise the connection until my boyfriend pointed it out. I hate Lemsip and I could have punched him there and then for putting the idea into my head.

I really didn’t want to associate such a great product with something that reminds me of the flu but once a comparison is made to a scent, I can never forget it.

* has flashback to when he also said that the Snow Angel bath melt smelt like cow’s poop* I haven’t been able to use it since…

Fortunately for the Over and Over bath bomb I have decided that I quite like its scent, it is just the taste of Lemsip that I dislike so much. As long as I’m not made to eat the bath bomb or drink the bath water I’m okay!

It’s scent is incredibly refreshing and warming all at the same time. It is a very crispy fruit scent that alerts yet relaxes my senses.


Due to the bath bomb being dipped in orange melt the Over and Over bath bomb is extremely moisturising. I always panic when I see so much melt, this bath bomb however got the melt and bath bomb ratio perfect.

My skin smelt lovely and felt refreshed for several hours after getting out of an Over and Over bath.

The only negative thing I want to say about the Over and Over bath bomb is how much it looks like the Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb once it is in the bath.

Both bath bombs are mostly yellow, Never Mind the Ballistics is however dipped in pink melt and Over and Over is dipped in orange. Once in the bath, looking back on photographs I can’t really tell the difference between the two.

I think maybe they should have made the Over and Over bath bomb green and blue? green because of the lime oil and blue because I believe it clashes well with green. The pattern it would create would be very interesting.

Although they do look the same once in the bath, the scent however makes it very easy to identify the 2 from each other, I just wish they invented Smell-o-gram so that everyone could appreciate its scent through my blog.

Over all, (no pun intended) I really do like the Over and Over bath bomb, so much so that I hope they bring it out as a permanent store product rather than just a one off.
