Uluru Bath Bomb from Lush

Described as the next best thing to experiencing the truly beautiful Australian outback sunsets I can never help but grab a few Uluru Bath Bombs when they become available in the Lush Kitchen. The Uluru bath bomb is an orange and dusky pink bath bomb designed in a very similar way to the Frozen bath bomb, it is mostly orange but has a dusky pink belt around its middle. The colours of this bath bomb have been very cleverly selected for showcasing a kaleidoscope of Australian sunset colours; Oranges, yellows, pinks and corals.

The Uluru bath bomb shares its scent with the shower gel that goes by the same name, the shower gel is another Lush Kitchen item I always grab if and when possible.

The Uluru bath bomb has a wonderful mix of summery ingredients, Brazilian orange, sandalwood and lemon myrtle oils to name a few. Scent wise the Uluru bath bomb is quite literally Summer in bath bomb form.

The Uluru bath bomb is a gloriously rich, citrus-scented product. If you have read any of my previous Lush reviews you’ll know that I favour the citrus products as I feel they are an easy way to add a little bit of energy and cheer to your day. The Uluru bath bomb on its scent alone is a citrus fans dream product and once it gets plonked into the water it just gets better.

Although design wise the Uluru bath bomb is similar to the Frozen bath bomb, it isn’t a smidge on par with its level of foam producing once in the water. This means it lacks in the bath art department however it has talents elsewhere. The Uluru bath bombs scent totally dominates the bathroom and lulls you into a calm and refreshed state of mind.

Packed with a shed load of coarse-sea-salt, the Uluru bath bomb is not only an excellent product for your skin when it is in need of some love, softening and hydration but also great for tired and sore muscles too. When ever I use the Uluru bath bomb it always gives me a boost no matter how low or tired I feel.

The Uluru bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer which isn’t a negative point from me, its quick reaction with the water means that I can lay back and relax a lot quicker than I can when using other bath bombs, it also means I get a little longer to soak in the beautiful Uluru bath water too.

Up against its shower gel equivalent, the Uluru bath bomb is far more moisturising for your skin, both leave your skin appearing brighter and feeling softer but the bath bomb is definitely the better option for dehydrated skin for sure.

Overall I am immensely impressed with the Uluru bath bomb, I was a little disappointed with the lack of bath art it created but it has more than enough positive traits shown in its appearance and performance elsewhere.

Blackberry Bath Bomb from Lush

blackberry-bath-bomb

Sometimes the most simple of Lush products turn out to be some of Lush’s best kept secrets. Being honest, the Blackberry Bath Bomb doesn’t exactly turn heads, it’s all one colour and not at all as exciting or nearly as pleasing on the eye as Frozen or The Experimenter bath bomb.

When I first started to really get into Lush I wasn’t so sure about this bath bomb as it contained 2 ingredients I wasn’t very familiar with, bergamot and frankincense. I’m not sure how everyone’s first experience with a Lush shop quite goes but if it was anything like mine, you didn’t have a clue as to where you should even start.

If a newbie Lushie asks me what products I recommend they first try, I never give a name of a specific product. I always say go into the shop and go to the product that calls out to you. Next give it a sniff, if you like its scent too, buy it!

I first came across the Blackberry bath bomb several years ago, it was completely overshadowed by the product next to it, (the super bright Fizzbanger) I picked it up, although it wasn’t the prettiest bath bomb in the shop, it didn’t smell unpleasant so I decided to give it a go.

Upon my very first use of the Blackberry bath bomb I discovered that it had magical properties and I now without question always have no less than 2 in my personal Lush stash.

When I very first used it I almost feel asleep in the bath, this wasn’t an odd chance thing either, it still happens every time I use it. I don’t know how I even make it out of the bath and into bed. As a diagnosed insomniac this product is quite simply a miracle. It has changed my life.

The scent of the Blackberry bath bomb stays with you throughout the next day too, if I know I have a stressful next day I always use it the night before.

I 100% recommend this bath bomb, it’s a life changer, I wish I had discovered it sooner than I did, I have however well made up for it since. Quite recently I have started to break the Blackberry bath bomb in half, it still has the same effect on me but now I can have 2 baths out of the one bath bomb.

There is also a little surprise at the end, I won’t spoil it for you, ENJOY!
