The Tick-Tock Bath Bomb is a brand new product created for Lush’s Christmas 2020 line. Strangely, it’s inspired by a robot character in one of the creepiest films that I ever watched as a child, the Return to Oz.
For the people that are fans of the Winter products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy, Tick-Tock might be the perfect item from the Christmas line for you.
The Tick-Tock bath bomb is about the same size as the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, although it is a little chunkier, think of it as Ickle Baby Bot after hitting the gym. Bright orange and decorated with golden glitter Tick-Tock almost glows in amongst all of the other Winter products.
Containing sweet cinnamon, sweet wild orange, cassia and neroli oil, Tick-Tock has a very dominating citrus scent. When the bath bomb is in my hand and not in the water I can really detect the bitterness of the neroli oil and didn’t understand why everyone kept comparing its fragrance to the Brightside bubble bar.
As soon as the Tick-Tock bath bomb hits the water the bitterness of its scent fades away, The sweet wild orange then takes the lead and although the aforementioned Brightside bubble bar doesn’t contain sweet wild orange it is at this point that I see the resemblance between the two products.
As the uplifting and super refreshing orange fragrance fills your bathroom the bath bomb fizzles away, you are then greeted with another surprise. Popping candy!
The Tick-Tock bath bomb doesn’t take long to dissolve but the popping candy pops away for a good 5 minutes after the robot figure has fully dissolved. If you’re not used to using bath bombs with popping candy in get ready for a most spectacular bathing experience… It’s a bath time I promise you’ll never forget.
Once the popping candies show comes to an end you are left with shimmering, bright orange bath water. Its consistency and how it smells really reminds me of unset orange-flavoured-jelly. The water is really silky, and feels ever so slightly thicker than just water. My skin basks in its cheeriness.
Overall I am really impressed with the Tick-Tock bath bomb, when I first see its smaller size I didn’t expect very much from it at all thinking of it as more of a novelty product more than anything, I however really enjoyed using it.
There wasn’t any bath art but the scent, feel of the water once it had dissolved and the popping candy well made up for no bath art. A soak in a Tick-Tock bath left me feeling warm, refreshed, calm and content.
Its scent also stayed on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day which often isn’t the case with such heavily based citrus products. If you’re looking to bring some brightness and cheer into your bathroom this Winter, then look no further than the Tick-Tock bath bomb!
