Trick or Treat Lip Scrub from Lush

The Trick or Treat Lip Scrub is a brand new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Halloween line. I use Lush lip scrubs almost every day so whenever a new one comes out I always order myself a pot.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still lost for words that such a simple and natural mix of ingredients can do such a great job. It really does make me question why other cosmetic companies ever actively chose to use (the now banned) micro-plastics in their exfoliation products.

Lush’s lip scrubs are ridiculously underrated, if you’re on the fence about giving them a go I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Using Lush lip scrubs requires a minimum amount of effort, they cover everything your lips need to always look and feel great. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry or chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has so many benefits and with all thanks to Lush, has never been easier or tastier!

As well as caster sugar the Trick or Treat lip scrub also contains organic jojoba and lime oils. If you’re a fan of sour sweets, then Trick or Treat is the perfect lip scrub for you. Its scent is nose-wrinklingly-sour and is just like a freshly cut lime. Taking its lid off and having a sniff feels like the very first swig of a really fizzy drink, it literally tickles your nose.

Trick or Treat lip scrub tastes just as good as it smells too; I just can’t get enough. It’s obviously not meant to be eaten but if a little does end up in your mouth while you are scrubbing your lips with it you don’t need to worry.

The Trick or Treat lip scrub is a stunning shade of lime green. Ordinarily, I tend to favour the lighter more natural coloured lip scrubs over the brightly coloured ones because I find the highly pigmented scrubs can sometimes leave your lips with a tinge of whatever colour the lip scrub is.

The biggest culprit of colour transfer in my opinion is the Galaxy lip scrub. Trick or Treat is clearly another very brightly coloured lip scrub however I am pleased to report that during use, I haven’t had any colour transfer from it at all.

The only negative thing about the Trick or Treat lip scrub is that it’s not as hydrating as other Lush lip scrubs. This minor inconvenience is however soon solved with a quick dab of lip balm.

Overall I really like the Trick or Treat lip scrub, it’s a stand out product from this year’s Halloween line. It’s a brilliant lip exfoliator and it is definitely all treat and no trick!

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb from Lush

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb has both a cute design and back story. Maya, a 10-year-old customer sent a letter to Lush asking if they could make a bath bomb for her brother Toby. She said that Toby loves both cows and rainbows. Maya’s request was taken very seriously, so seriously that Lush did combine a cow with a rainbow and out of it, Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb was born!

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is designed in a very similar way to the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs with their semi-hidden rainbow-insides. Both have proved very popular within the Lush community so I suspect Toby’s Magic Cow to sell equally as well.

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb shares its scent with the Milky Bath bubble bar, it’s a very musky and gentle fragrance so a good bath bomb to go for if you like the Lush products with a more subtle and less in-your-face presence.

Ingredients wise, Toby’s Magic Cow contains popping candy for a bit of extra bath-time-magic, Brazilian orange and patchouli oils and plenty of skin softening coconut milk powder too.

Lush’s Milky Bath/Toby’s Magic Cow scent is admittedly a little strange as it doesn’t seem to match the ingredients list in the product. I’m so used to orange and patchouli being overly dominant ingredients in Lush products (such as the Karma Yantra bath bomb – both orange and patchouli oils feature in it too) that the gentleness of Toby’s Magic Cow’s scent really threw me.

The photo above is of Toby’s Magic Cow having a MOOch in my garden, I had way too much fun with Toby’s Magic Cow long before I even got around to putting it into my bath.

If you have Instagram I recommend that you have a look under the hashtags #TobysMagicCowBathBomb and #LushCommunity as it’s full of beautiful and creative photos of Toby’s Magic Cow – as well as much better cow puns than my own!

Toby’s Magic Cow is a good size, fitting snuggly into my hand. On first appearance it is pretty-much white all over although you can see the odd splash of colour around its edges. It’s a little bit bigger than the other rainbow-bath-bombs that I compared it to earlier, (Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit) – The rainbow aspect of Toby’s Magic Cow is also better hidden, that is until it gets wet…

As soon as the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of rainbow-colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues shoot out of it, leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath-bomb-foam.

Unlike the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs the colourful rainbow foam bursts out of the whole of the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, framing it with its rainbow streaks.

Its soft peppery scent slowly fills the bathroom as you sit back, relax and enjoy the colourful show it puts on.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, its scent isn’t one of my favourites from Lush but it is gentle enough to pair up with plenty of other Lush products if you want to make it a little more interesting.

It left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. The best part about Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is definitely it’s colours and the bath art it creates.

My photos as always, do the bath bomb no justice at all. It’s a beautiful product and wherever Maya and Toby are, I hope they get to enjoy their colourful creation!

Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

In 2021 Lush have released more new bubble bars than I can keep up with, none of them have however got me quite as excited as the Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar. Cinnamon Roll is a part of 2021’s Winter line and is set to be released in stores and online at the end of September.

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the same size as the, The Comforter, Brightside and Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bars, HUGE! One of the very first items that I ever bought from Lush was the, The Comforter bubble bar. I picked it because it was so big and because I loved the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to a bath bomb being just for one.

Cinnamon Roll’s larger size is not the only thing that it has in common with the 3 big bubble bars that I mentioned above, it’s also made in the same way. The red and gold bubble bar mixtures are rolled together hence the ‘roll’ in its name.

If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes footage from the Lush Factory and for better insight on how Lush make their products be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. (Watching the videos are much better than me trying to explain it…)

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar contains, benzoin resinoid, cinnamon powder and the following essential oils; Cinnamon leaf, clove leaf, lime, Brazilian orange and patchouli. Its scent is very similar to the scent of cola bottle sweets but with a warm and sweet cinnamon-rich twang.

Another product with the same scent as the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the Hot Toddy shower gel. The Hot Toddy shower gel is yet another Winter product that I love, which is another reason as to why I was so excited about the release of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

The ingredients in both the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and Hot Toddy shower gel are super warming on the skin making them the perfect product to use for aches and pains, something I suffer with daily.

As I said earlier the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is on the larger side, I’m not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I was being sensible, I could easily get 7 or 8 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Cinnamon Roll bubble bar. I am shocked at how far the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar goes.

To use I break up the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath immediately, I have never experienced a bubble bar like it!

Underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a dark, wine-red with a beautiful sparkly-golden shimmer.

When it comes down to my never-ending fight with widespread chronic pain, the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is even better than when I use the Hot Toddy shower gel. I have never felt more relaxed, and my joints have never felt better soothed as they do when I’m marinating myself in a Cinnamon Roll bubble bath. It’s heaven in a bathtub!

The scent and its magical-warming-properties really hits you as soon as you sink yourself into its waters. It just seeps through to your muscles soothing both your body and state-of-mind.

With the Summer weather finally coming to an end and with Autumn already well underway I cannot get enough of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

Do I recommend giving it a go? YES. I hope with all of my heart that Lush releases this bubble bar every Winter from now on. Sadly the Winter bubble bars are often only one hit wonders but the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is exactly what has been missing in the Winter line for several years, Lush would be crazy to not make it a staple Winter product from here on out.

Orange Pop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Orange Pop Bath Bomb is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line. You may recognise its design from Winter lines of the past as Lush have used the same bath bomb mould (green leaf too) for Orange Pop as they did for their 2016 version of the So White bath bomb.

I decided to start my Winter 2021 bath bomb reviews with the Orange Pop bath bomb as it’s a product that doesn’t scream the C word. If you’ve read any of my past reviews on Winter products before, you’ll know how much I appreciate the Winter products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy.

The Orange Pop bath bomb has a very simple ingredients list, Sicilian red mandarin, tangerine, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils with a generous, surprise helping of popping candy too.

You’ll recognise its scent from the bestselling and very much loved golden-oldie-Lush-product the Brightside bubble bar. I considered using both Brightside and Orange Pop together but the Orange Pop bath bomb is so powerful once in the water, I was super-glad that I didn’t.

If I am being honest (as I always am in my reviews) I really wasn’t expecting much from the Orange Pop bath bomb at all. Maybe because I had the Satsuma bath bomb from a past Christmas line in mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed using the Satsuma bath bomb but it just wasn’t very exciting compared to a lot of the other products on offer that year, it didn’t produce bath art and only really had a gentle citrus scent. I couldn’t have been more wrong in comparing the 2 together, Orange Pop is nothing at all like the Satsuma bath bomb, NOTHING AT ALL.

The Orange Pop’s scent isn’t too strong when you are handling it, that however soon changes when you put it in to your bath water. As soon as you drop the Orange Pop bath bomb into your bath water you are greeted with that super-satisfying hiss and a burst of super-sweet orange scent that takes over your bathroom.

Orange Pop isn’t hugely foamy; Small, light orange and green bubbles sizzle out of it as it slowly rolls around the water’s surface. It continues like this for the first 3 to 5 minutes before the green bubbles disappear completely, only leaving you with the light orange bubbles.

When I first used Orange Pop, it was at this point that I thought, oh, that’s it, show’s over. Then all of a sudden, a huge explosion of red erupted from the Orange Pop bath bomb.

When the Orange Pop bath bomb’s surprise red insides decide to make an appearance the popping candy also starts to snap, crackle and pop too! What I thought was going to be a relatively dull bath bomb just got way more exciting!

I took so many photos of the swirling red and orange bath art created by the Orange Pop bath bomb, none of them do this bath bomb justice. It’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself.

If you miss the Christmas Sweater bath bomb like me, Orange Pop’s bath art is on par with it and features the same gorgeous colours too!

Orange Pop takes about 10 minutes to fully dissolve, once the popping candy has stopped, you are left with smooth and super-soft blood-orange bath water. Once out of the bath my skin felt so silky. It really seemed to perk the appearance of my skin up, it became much brighter and it was lovely and hydrated too.

Overall I really, really did enjoy using the Orange Pop bath bomb, its lovely scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day – (although thankfully, it is a lot more subtle on your skin than how it is in the bath!)

I am so excited for the Orange Pop bath bomb to hit the shops at the end of September, I really do believe that it’s going to sell very well and I will certainly be buying a few more to use too.

Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub from Lush

The Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line.

Pineapple is one of my favourite fruits and not just to eat. I love it in decor too, right now, I have pineapples on my bedding, pineapple photo frames  on my wall and even a pineapple light. Pineapples feature in one way or another in every room of my house so naturally I was very excited when we first heard rumours about a new pineapple lip scrub.

The first thing that I noticed about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub was its snazzy label. It’s an eye-catching holographic gold, the label changes slightly depending on how the light hits it, I don’t think I have ever been as interested in a label before, it certainly makes a change from Lush’s normal-standard plain black and white labels.

When I first took off the lid and gave the Golden Pineapple lip scrub a sniff, I hadn’t looked at what ingredients it had in it. My nose immediately picked up on something a little spicy, within just a few seconds the sweet pineapple scent did however come through too. I quickly flipped the pot to see what ingredients it had in it as I wasn’t expecting a spicy element at all…

The Golden Pineapple lip scrub contains pineapple powder, yellow Mandarin oil, ginger absolute, golden caster sugar, ordinary caster sugar and plenty of organic jojoba oil and fair-trade shea butter. The ginger in it was the culprit for the slight spicy element and looking at the ingredients written down, I would never have thought to put pineapple and ginger together, but they both complement each other brilliantly.

The main ingredient in Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still amazed that such a simple blend of natural ingredients can do such a thorough, yet gentle job of exfoliating your lips AND without drying them out. I love that the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is both warming and fruity, it’s the perfect Wintertime sugar scrub!

Using Lush lip scrubs requires the minimum amount of effort. They cover everything your lips need to always look their best. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry, chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has never been easier (or tastier) thanks to the Golden Pineapple. I will most certainly be keeping a pot of the Golden Pineapple lip scrub in my handbag throughout the whole of Winter. Dare I say Golden Pineapple is my new favourite Lush lip scrub? 😉

To use a Lush lip scrub all you have to do is scoop out a little with your finger and then buff your lips with it before licking off the excess. It’s easy enough to use on the go and the pot is small enough to have in your hand bag/purse too.

Another of my favourite things about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is its colouring. It looks like it could be just a pot of golden caster sugar, I don’t think I have ever disliked a lip scrub from Lush but I do find that the more colourful ones such as the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs, can leave an ever so subtle (but definitely noticeable) blue tinge on your lips, using less is more in the case of the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs but when it comes down to the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, you can over indulge as much as you like without fear of turning your lips a different colour.

I am totally in love with the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, I can’t wait for it to hit the shops and I hope it sells well as it’s an absolutely perfect lip scrub that I’d love to see go mainline. The lip scrubs Lush keep creating just seem to be getting better and better! ❤️

Temple of the Sky Bath Bomb from Lush

The Temple of the Sky Bath Bomb was first released back in 2020 right before the UK went into its first lockdown, currently it is still available to purchase but sadly it won’t be for much longer as it is being discontinued to make way for new bath bombs. With it going so soon, I have left doing this review a little late but better late than never!

Back when the Temple of the Sky bath bomb first came out it was released alongside several other bath bombs, one of those being the Tengri bath bomb. At the time of writing this review the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is the only bath bomb out of the small selection that came out then, that is still available to purchase.

I am a little shocked that Lush have however recently decided to discontinue it soon. I thought it had been selling well, it’s still plastered all over Instagram within the Lush community so it really was a surprise to hear of its demise…

I think what first makes the Temple of the Sky bath bomb so popular is its intricate attention to detail, it’s a round shape with a golden border, inside the golden border is a golden Japanese style temple surrounded by brilliant blue sky. It’s a real piece of art, almost too beautiful to put it into water just to let go down the plug hole.

The Temple of the Sky bath bombs ingredients are all things zingy; Containing both Sicilian lemon and sweet wild orange oils, its yet another zesty-sweet, citrus scented bath bomb that is perfect for awakening all of your senses!

As soon as the Temple of the Sky bath bomb touches the water and array of yellow and turquoise foam sizzles out of it. A thin layer of silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away. The colourings of the Temple of the Sky bath bomb when it first goes in to action really reminds me of one of my all-time favourite bath bombs, Golden Wonder.

Temple of the Sky is a really slow fizzer giving you plenty of time to admire the bath art it creates. I say this in almost every bath bomb review I write but my photos do not do this bath bomb justice, it’s so, so beautiful in the water. The colours are just like a brilliantly sunny day, blue skies and golden sun beams. My bathroom has never felt brighter.

The water left behind is a beautiful shade of turquoise-green and is full of shimmery gold lustre, I can happily sit in the bath swishing the water back and forth watching the shimmer dance around right up until the water gets too cold for me to be in the tub anymore. If you love bath art the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is a must try product for you.

I adore the Temple of the Sky bath bomb and am extremely sad to see it go into retirement. The bath art it creates, its scent and how soft it makes your skin feel afterwards is amazing, it’s a perfect product. I just hope the new bath bombs that Lush bring out to fill the gap that the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is leaving live up to Temple of the Sky’s standards, it’ll be a hard bath bomb to beat!

Slammer Shower Gel from Lush

The Slammer Shower Gel is an old Lush favourite that the subscribers of the Lush Kitchen box were reintroduced to when it made an appearance several boxes ago. When the Lush Kitchen did weekly menus between 2014 and 2017 the Slammer shower gel was frequently featured so I was very pleased to see that it was back and had finally earned a place in one of the new-style-Lush-Kitchen monthly subscription boxes!

Slammer shower gel is full of energy boosting ingredients, it is the perfect shower gel to use in the morning to help fuel an early-morning start AND (although I don’t drink alcohol so cannot say this from personal experience) it is also said to be really good to use when you’ve got a dreaded hangover.

Slammer has a long list of ingredients; Lime peel, ginger root infusion, fresh sea water straight from Poole, fresh lime juice and lime and lemon oils. The old version of Slammer shower gel did have honey in but this most recent release was 100% vegan which I know caused a lot of excitement within the Lush Community.

The Slammer shower gels scent is refreshing and bright, the lime and lemon in it make it incredibly zingy, it also has a slightly spicy bite thanks to the ginger root infusion. It smells delicious, almost good enough to eat but please don’t eat it, as tempting as it is!

Consistency wise it’s ever-so-slightly runny but not so bad that you accidently lose most of it trying to put it in your hands ready to lather. A little amount of it goes a very long way and it lathers up easily – my husband really likes to use it after work (instead of first thing in the morning) he has quite a physically demanding job and can get really dirty, he says Slammer lifts off anything stubborn left on his skin easy-peasy, he says it is much better than any other Lush shower gel. A bold statement indeed!

The scent really comes alive when used in the shower too, the heat of the water and the steam really intensifies it, its scent fills your bathroom and it stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day.

I have really missed the Slammer shower gel, it not only smells good but also leaves your skin positively glowing. This shower gel really needs to come back as a staple store product, even if just for a season!

The Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb from Lush

There have been several giant-sized bath bombs released by Lush over the last few years but none of them have been quite like the Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb. What sets this giant bath bomb apart from all of the rest is the inclusion of the reusable glow in the dark wax stars and moon.

The Sleeping Giant shares its scent with the Sleepy/Twilight range, it’s a massively bestselling Lush-scent, you are most likely to recognise it from the Twilight bath bomb and Sleepy body lotion. There are however many, many more products with the same scent currently available to try as well.

Inside the hollow Sleeping Giant bath bomb are lots of dry flowers. There’s sprigs of dry lavender, dry rose petals, dried pink delphinium petals, dried blue mallow flowers and my favourite, chamomile flowers too.

Being honest as always I don’t ordinarily go for the bath bombs with loose flowers in just because of the clean up afterwards, sometimes they are however worth using as a special treat. I only used all of my Sleeping Giant bath bomb together, petals-and-all as I wanted to get some good photos and also wanted to see it in all of its glory so that I could give you guys a fair review on it. 😊

Pushing the dry flowers to one side, the bath bomb part of the, The Sleeping Giant contains lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything including the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

After using the Sleeping Giant bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

The glow in the dark reusable wax stars and moon shapes are a very welcome extra from this bath bomb. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap (the Ghost in the Dark soap) before now but nothing like this that is completely reusable! To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The photo below is of them broken away from the bath bomb, I sadly couldn’t get a photo of them that showed just how bright they do glow. Like many other Lush products the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is one of those products you have to experience for yourself to really get a taste of how it is to use. Photos do not do it justice at all.

Overall I did really enjoy using the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb. As it is a giant bath bomb it is a little expensive but I am glad I tried it once as a treat. Would I purchase it again? No but only because I can now add the glow in the dark moon and stars to my bath with any Lush product I want now. I love that they are reusable!

The only issue I really had with the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is the clear up afterwards. Those dry petals get everywhere! Luckily I have a gadget that goes over the plug so none get stuck, blocking my bathroom pipes up. Scooping them up is easy enough at the end but not something I’d want to be doing after every bath.

I am always first to roll my eyes when people moan that bath bombs are messy so when I say the clear up was a little frustrating it really was. I am however glad I tried this bath bomb as a treat to myself. If I did have the opportunity to use it again I’d probably either take all of the dried petals out or only allow a few into the water.

Daisy Eye Pads from Lush

Another month, another delivery of the Fresh and Flowers Lush-subscription-box! The Daisy Eye Pads were exclusive to June’s Subscription box. After loving both the Cucumber and Rose eye pads from boxes previous to June 2021’s, I was very pleased to see yet another set of eye pads to try.

FRESH IS BEST and all of Lush’s eye pads are best kept in the fridge until you want to use them. The eye pads are a fairly new product from Lush and I can’t get enough of them. D.I.Y at home spa nights have never been so easy.

The Daisy eye pads contain chamomile, butterfly pea flower infusion, fresh aloe gel, carrageenan extract and the ingredient that sets the Daisy eye pads away from the rest – an ox eye daisy flower-head in each!

To use the Daisy eye pads all you have to do is take them out of the fridge, unwrap them from their fully compostable wrapping paper, then place them on each eye for approximately 15 minutes. I often wear them for a lot longer as I just love how soothing they feel on your eyes after a long day.

The Daisy eye pads are full of ingredients that can support and help you maintain healthy skin; Chamomile is particularly good for your eye area as it’a incredibly gentle and has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, blended with the fresh aloe gel the Daisy eye pads are perfect for soothing tired, puffy eyes.

I’ve said in previous eye pad reviews that some people use the whole of an eye pad for each eye, while others cut their eye pads in half to make them go a little further. Instead of placing the whole thing over your eye, you place half of the cut eye pad just on the under-eye area instead. Due to the daisy-flower-head inside of each of the eye pads I however recommend spoiling yourself by using the whole thing at once when it comes to the Daisy eye pads!

15 minutes with the Daisy eye pads on really does make a difference. Once I have taken them off my eyes feel super refreshed and revived, almost like I have just splashed my face with cold water. The puffiness I get throughout the day is also slightly reduced, it’s a hard sensation to describe but the heaviness your eyes feel when you’re tired just seems to melt away.

Lush’s eye pads are said to stay fresh for approximately 3 weeks, this time frame can however be stretched somewhat if you haven’t handled them without the compostable wrapper too much and (most importantly) have kept them in the fridge.

Would I recommend using them more than once? I want to say no as the eye area is a delicate part of your body BUT if your eyes are clean before using it (and you are comfortable using it on yourself again) then I don’t see why not. I absolutely adore Lush eye pads, I really hope they make more available outside of the Fresh and Flowers subscription box soon as they are a real treat!

Diamond Dust Bath Bomb from Lush

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.

(pic 3 TBA)

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.
