Today I’m very happy to be writing up my review on the Calm A Llama Party Piñata Bath Bomb. I have had my eye on this product ever since the opening day at Lush’s shiny new flagship store in Liverpool.
Up until very recently this bath bomb was only available as an in-store-party exclusive at the flagship Liverpool store. Now it’s available in every store as a part of an in-store-party.
More information on the in store parties can be found on the Lush website. I’ve never personally been to one but once I do, I will be sure to let you know all about them on here!
Last month, Lush actually released a very limited amount of the Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bombs on their UK website.
For the customers who aren’t lucky enough to live near a store or those like me who haven’t had the time to book a party, this made quite a few Lush customers day.
Sadly the online party stock did sell out very quickly BUT if this bath bomb was easy to get, it wouldn’t be much of an exclusive would it?
The Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bomb shares its scent with one of my favourite shower gels, Calacas. Normally the Calacas scent dominates the Halloween period and doesn’t get much of a look in at any other time of the year.
Featuring in several Halloween products over the years (the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb being another personal favourite of mine) seeing (or should I say smelling) the Calacas scent outside of the Halloween period makes me a very happy Lushie.
The Calm A Llama Party Piñatas scent is both energising and uplifting. With its lime, frankincense and neroli mix the Calacas scent is a sharp and zesty mood-boosting-fragrance, making it perfect for a Lush party!
After its gorgeous scent the next things that I noticed about the Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bomb was its huge size, you can see how big it is compared to my hand in a few photos above. After its size I then noticed its pretty pastel colouring. The Llamas head is yellow, its body orange and its legs pink.
As the Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bomb hits the water an explosion of pastel yellow, orange and pink burst out of it. It’s a fairly slow fizzer and also contains popping candy although I hardly noticed it.
I did also expect much better bath art than I got, it was however a very pretty bath and the scent lasted through out and on my skin afterwards. The water left behind was a deep shade of orange.
Once out of the bath my skin was left feeling silky smooth as well as incredibly hydrated. Its scent was also still noticeable on my skin, it isn’t quite as strong a scent left behind by the likes of the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb, it’s much more subtle.
Overall I did really enjoy using the Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bomb, I would have however been a lot happier if the bath bomb had featured all of the same colours as the ones displayed in the Liverpool store on their opening day. The ones that were available online are missing the colours blue and green.
The bath art I imagine would have been a bit more exciting had Lush decided to keep the Calm A Llama Party Piñata bath bomb as a 5 coloured bomb instead of changing it to just 3.
