Set to be officially released as a mainline product in a few weeks, the Diamond Dust Bath Bomb first became available in Lush’s, May 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box. Said to be the most sparkly bath bomb to ever be released, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one.
The first thing you notice about the Diamond Dust bath bomb is its unique shape, if you’re not at all familiar with UK TV gameshows, (ones that were on in the early 90’s in particular) this next reference won’t mean anything to you but for me, the bath bomb really reminds me of the old TV gameshow The Crystal Maze.

Diamond Dust’s creamy pink and orange colouring as well as its unique shape has well and truly caught the attention of the Lush community. Containing neroli, ylang ylang, black pepper, sandalwood and vetivert oils its scent is both uplifting and relaxing.
Describing its scent is quite difficult because of its long list of ingredients but I will give it my best shot… You’d think that with so many ingredients the Diamond Dust bath bomb would have a powerful overbearing scent, its scent is however subtle and not at all in your face.
Even though the Diamond Dust bath bombs scent is subtle there are several layers to its fragrance, my nose first picks up on the neroli, then there is a warm smoky layer to it that rounds the neroli’s bitterness off. There’s also a floral element to it from the ylang ylang too. It’s incredibly moreish, a long soak in its waters leaves me refreshed and lulls me into a happier state of mind.
As soon as the Diamond Dust bath bomb hits the water it begins to fizzle away, light pastel pinks, oranges, yellows and creamy white foam sizzles out of the bath bomb as it charges around like a speed boat, dancing on the waters surface.
It’s a fairly slow fizzer and although it’s not big for bath art, there are several beautiful bath art shots of it on Instagram if you search via the hashtag #DiamondDustBathBomb. My photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all so please do check the hashtag out on Instagram.
Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with milky-peach-water that is jam packed with gorgeous shimmer. Lush weren’t lying when they said that this bath bomb was a sparkler! I wish I could have gotten a photo of the shimmer for this review but it’s so hard to capture on camera. It’s a bath bomb you have to experience for yourself to see its true potential and beauty.
My skin felt super-soft once I was out of the bath and its gentle scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too.
I am really looking forward to the Diamond Dust bath bomb being released as a mainline product in September 2021. I love the monthly Kitchen Subscription boxes (where we first got access to this bath bomb) but when you get an amazing bath bomb like Diamond Dust getting just the one to try simply isn’t enough! I will most certainly be ordering a couple more of these as soon as they become available.
