Lush have recently started to do product collaborations with a vast list of other likeminded businesses, companies and more. These seemingly popular collaborations have been churned out by Lush at such a rapid rate that it’s been difficult to keep up. None of the collaborations have however got me quite as excited as Lush’s collaboration with Netflix’s science-fiction television series, STRANGER THINGS.
If I’m being completely honest, I pretty much live under a rock and most of the collaborations before this one have been collaborations with tv shows/clothing companies that I’m not at all familiar with.
Stranger Things I have however heard of; I’d go as far as saying I’m a super fan. Even after using the products, I still can’t quite believe a Lush X Stranger Things collaboration has even happened?! MY MIND IS BLOWN!
Released back in November 2022, the Lush X Stranger Things collaboration is a gift set called the HFC Bathing Duo, AKA the HELL FIRE CLUB BATHING DUO. It contains 2 bath bombs, the D8 Bath Bomb (pictured above) and the, The Rift Bath Bomb. Today’s review is going to be on the D8 Bath Bomb.
The D8 bath bomb is quite the unique shape, designed in the shape of an 8-sided Dungeons and Dragons dice (a game the main characters in Stranger Things spend many hours playing, it’s also the inspiration behind the whole series)
I didn’t know which bit of the bath bomb to focus on in the photos, each side of the D8 has an image or number on it that is either related to Lush, Stranger Things or both, it’s such a thorough and well-thought-out creation!
The D8 bath bomb shares its scent with the Intergalactic bath bomb a great decision from Lush considering it is one of their bestsellers. D8 contains a long list of ingredients, some included are peppermint, grapefruit, vetivert and cedarwood oils.
The Intergalactic scent family is primarily peppermint, the grapefruit in it however adds a fruity and citrus sharpness to it, it’s a very hard scent to describe and really is one you must experience to appreciate.
The Intergalactic scent is powerful at first but quickly became one of my all-time favourite Lush-scent-families. I’ve been eagerly awaiting a body spray that shares its scent since 2015… HINT, HINT, LUSH.
As soon as you place the D8 bath bomb into the water it starts to gently hiss. Small white bubbles begin to spill out of it. Slowly but surely the D8 bath bomb floats around your bath, charging around like a little speed boat. After about a minute and a half a streak of red and blue begin to trickle out of the all-white bath bomb too.
The most beautiful red, white and blue bath art then begins to unfold before your eyes, the photographs I have included in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all. After approximately 5 minutes the D8 bath bomb has fully dissolved the water left behind is a cloudy greyish-light-blue and feels like silk.
I really wasn’t expecting such great bath art from the D8 bath bomb, the red, white, and blue swirls it created were picture perfect! The scent from the D8 bath bomb lasts throughout the whole of your bath and leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world. Or should I say Vecna?
Overall, I LOVED THIS COLLABORATION! I don’t think Lush could ever top this. As I said at the start of this review, I’m still lost for words that it even happened. I can’t wait to see what/who Lush decide to collaborate with next.
