Pop Art Bath Bomb from Lush

Pop Art Bath Bomb

To look at you wouldn’t know that the Pop Art Bath Bomb is in fact a part of the Christmas 2019 line. The fact it’s not in-your-face Christmas is actually what first drew me to it. I imagine this would be the case for many others that aren’t quite ready to embrace the C word yet! 😉

Made in the same mould as the new Blackberry, The Comforter and the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bath bombs I was very excited to give it a try.

Pop Art is inspired by popcorn, a snack I can never get enough of. With its shape and its bright yellow and white colours it certainly stands out from all the other bath bombs currently available.

When it comes down to Pop Art’s scent family the Lush Community are divided on which Lush scent it is closest to. What with the shut down of Lush-UK’s social media too, it’s made it more difficult to get an official answer.

When the news of Pop Art was first leaked we all thought that its scent would be the same as the mouthwateringly scrumptious Let the Good Times Roll Fresh Cleanser; Since however using it I am leaning more towards it sharing its scent with the Yog Nog bath bomb.

It’s difficult to say which products scent it is supposed to emulate because of Pop Arts basic and incredibly vague ingredients list. I do however feel safe in saying that Pop Art’s scent is a fine mix of the 2 – just think of it like it is the baby of both the aforementioned bath bombs. 😉


As soon as the Pop Art bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with a huge hiss, yellow and white foam fizzles out of it as it slowly bobs around the water surface. Once in the water it doesn’t take long for the hidden popping candy to kick in…

I don’t ever recall a bath bomb with quite as much popping candy before, Pop by name and pop by nature! Pop Art is a fabulously slow dissolver too, the popping candy cackled away for well over 5 minutes and hidden inside there is also burst of red colour too; Pop Art creates red, orange and yellow swirly bath art galore!

I am still undecided as to whether Pop Art is more Yog Nog scented than it is Let the Good Times Roll. I would however confidently say that if you do enjoy the Yog Nog bath bomb, you’d enjoy Pop Art. Think of it as a less oily version of the Yog Nog bath bomb, Pop Art doesn’t have the hidden bath melts in but does have plenty of popping candy!

Overall I am impressed with the Pop Art bath bomb, its caramel-sweet, pop corn fragrance although subtle stays on your skin long after getting out of the bath and it’s actually very hydrating on the skin too. I adore the popping candy aspect and was also blown away by the bath art it created.

Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb
The Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 Mother’s day line. The carefully crafted, butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Dragon’s Egg or Intergalactic.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their bath-bomb-moulds, trying out lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs.

The butterfly bath bombs have proven very popular because of their beautiful and clever design, Lush were very wise when they made the decision to make and release 4 different butterfly bath bombs. (I’ll talk about the 4th butterfly bath bomb that isn’t a part of the Mothers day line in its own review very soon.)

Like the Rose Butterfly bath bomb, Wild Butterflies name doesn’t give much away when it comes down to guessing its ingredients; Containing sweet wild orange, petitgrain and olive leaf absolute its scent is a cocktail of sweet-citrus-fruit blended with subtle warming and earthy tones.

It’s sunshine-yellow and shimmery-orange design makes for some super sunny bath art.

As soon as the Wild Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of orange and yellow foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away.

The Wild Butterfly bath bombs supposedly shares its scent with the Berry Berry Christmas shower gel, until the bath bomb came in contact with the water this wasn’t at all apparent to me.

Once wet, my nose could finally detect the products’ familiarities, I however still don’t believe it is the exact same scent, Wild Butterflies scent hasn’t got the same sourness as the aforementioned shower gels.

The Wild Butterfly bath bomb is a fairly slow fizzer, ensuring that you have plenty of time to snap some bath art shots if that’s your type of thing. I know most people like to just lay back and relax, watching the bath bomb put on its show.

As the Wild Butterly bath bomb dissolves, it slowly turns your bath water a bright and very warm orange colour. The shade of orange reminds me of the bath water left behind by the Brightside bubble bar. I have yet to try both Brightside and Wild Butterfly together but I imagine they would work very well together.

A good soak in a Wild Butterfly bath leaves your skin brighter and super-refreshed. Its subtle scent also remains on your skin long after leaving your bath tub.

Overall I am very impressed with the Wild Butterfly bath bomb. Unfortunately for me the UK’s Mother’s Day has been and gone but I know some other countries still haven’t had their Mother’s Day yet. Please make sure that you try this bath bomb at least once while you still can, I promise you won’t regret it!

Mamma Mia Shower Scrub from Lush

Mamma Mia Shower Scrub.png

The Mamma Mia Shower Scrub is the latest of the shower scrubs to be released. Up until last year, Lush for as long as I can remember only had the one potted shower scrub on offer; The Rub Rub Rub. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Rub Rub Rub but when it was the only potted shower scrub available I did begin to grow a little bored of it.

Just as I’d noticed the lack of variety when it came down to the potted shower scrubs Lush must have read my mind. The Magic Crystal shower scrub was randomly released closely followed by another called Scrub Scrub Scrub.

The Mamma Mia shower scrub is a part of the 2019 Mother’s day line and shares its scent with one of the most underrated (in my personal opinion) bath bombs created by Lush, Stardust. Its mixture is also bright pink which happens to be my favourite colour. Including ingredients such as pink grapefruit, vanilla, rosewood and bergamot, Mamma Mia smells just like creamy vanilla ice cream.

To use Mamma Mia shower scrub all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just like you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge while using it, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t! 😉

With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as your knees and elbows.

Other ingredients that are also in the Mamma Mia shower scrub are Himalayan salt and rose clay, these 2 ingredients are Mamma Mia’s secret weapon when it comes down to perfect skin exfoliation and hydration all in one product.

It’s rare to find a product that aids both skin hydration and exfoliation so well, Lush have mastered the art and formula in all of their potted shower scrubs for both of these aspects. All in all, I have however found Mamma Mia to be the most moisturising out of all of the shower scrubs I have mentioned in this review.

I will be taking a pot of this with me on my next holiday as well as sun lotion, I do not have a holiday booked right now but if I ever do get the chance to get away, a sun, sea, sand and reading my book by the pool holiday is my idea of heaven. The Himalayan salt in Mamma Mia will help get rid of any dead skin making way for a nice sun tan and the rose clay will help soothe your skin after a day in the sun too. It’s a perfect sunny holiday product. 👌

I’m really sad to know that the Mamma Mia shower scrub will be gone with the rest of the Mother’s day stock soon. Its scent is light and unique, I liked Mamma Mia so much upon first use that I immediately ordered another pot of it as soon as I stepped out of the shower. Not just a small pot either, I am now the proud owner of a 600g pot and my husband isn’t allowed to touch it!
