D8 Bath Bomb from Lush

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.

Zesty Body Spray from Lush

Previously known as the Calacas body spray, the Zesty Body Spray’s scent happens to be one of my most favourite Lush scents of all time. My first experience with a Zesty/Calacas scented product was when I ordered the Calacas shower gel back when Lush was all shiny and new to me.

I fell hopelessly in love after just one use and just like that, my Lush-life’s mission became trying anything and everything Lush brought out with the same fragrance.

Before the body spray’s release, I had been putting in weekly requests to Lush for a Calacas perfume for what felt like an eternity, it had been my most wanted product for well over 5 years. On the 1st of December 2018 Lush finally came through. The Lush Kitchen made a Calacas Body Spray! Since then, it has not only had a name change but has also been made into a mainline product thanks to it being so popular.

The Zesty body spray was inspired by the Day of the Dead. The Day of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico during the last week of October and first few days of November. It is a celebration in honour of the family and friends who are no longer with them.

Zesty contains lime, frankincense and neroli oils, the Zesty scent is sweet, sharp and thanks to the neroli oil an instant mood booster. Lush have joked that it’s so zingy it could wake the dead.

The Zesty scent is hugely popular within the Lush community and Lush have made it into many different product formats, my favourites that share its scent (other than the body spray and shower gel) are the Monsters’ Ball bath bombMan in the Moon bubble barThe Enchanter bath bomb and Calacas body lotion.

Zesty is a beautiful, citrus body spray. Another thing I really like about it is that it isn’t super-duper in your face strong like some other citrusy scents. One quick spray on to my clothes leaves me smelling of it all day.  I can often still smell it on my top if I wear it the next day too.

I love wearing it on special occasions so that whenever I do get a whiff of it, I feel special.

Another thing I like to do with it is spritz it on the ends of my hair. Several people have asked me what shampoo I use as my hair smells so lovely. Overall, I am over the moon with this body spray. It has pride of place on top of my dresser next to my Celebrate and Once Upon a Time body sprays.

I Want My Mummy Bath Bomb from Lush

The I Want My Mummy Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. Its sweet-honey fragrance is very similar to the scent family found in the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb HOWEVER there’s an extra element to its scent; My nose also detects something that smells like lashings of sticky caramel in it too.

It’s mouth-wateringly good and leaves me craving biscuits. Just writing this introduction is making me hungry…

Playing up to the theme of Halloween, the I Want My Mummy bath bomb is designed to look like a mummy (and not the motherly-figure type) this mummy is the zombie wrapped in bandages type. Considering it’s replicating a resurrected dead body covered in bandages, it’s actually ridiculously cute!

The I Want My Mummy bath bomb contains Brazilian orange and bergamot oils. To look at, it doesn’t stand out as much as the likes of the bold and brightly coloured Big Foot or Bat Art bath bombs but I’ll say it now and I’ll say it again, never judge a bath bomb until you’ve given it a whirl in a bath tub.

Like the Butterball bath bomb, I Want My Mummy is very plain to look at and has very few ingredients in, you won’t get bath art from it but sometimes bath art isn’t all bath bombs are good for.

No, the I Want My Mummy bath bomb doesn’t spout a kaleidoscope of colours once placed into the water BUT its scent and skin soothing ingredients make it a bath bomb you need to try at least once.

I recommend using the I Want My Mummy bath bomb in a hot-as-you-can-stand-it bath, this really helps the cupuaçu butter in it melt into the water, ready for your skin to soak up.

It’s perfect for soothing tired, dry skin. If you’re like me and need an extra splash of hydration on your skin this time of year, it’s well worth giving the I Want My Mummy bath bomb a try.

I usually use the aforementioned Butterball bath bomb at this time of year for the same skin-hydration reasons; Both the Butterball and I Want My Mummy bath bombs are very good at keeping your skin moisturised without having to slather yourself with a body lotion. It’s a quick and easy way to ensure your skin is in tip-top condition while also saving you time as you do not need to lotion up after getting out of the bath.

As soon as the I Want My Mummy bath bomb comes into contact with the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of soft white bubbles. It’s a fairly quick fizzer so it doesn’t take long for it to fully dissolve leaving you with soft, milky-like, luxuriously-smooth bath water to lay back in and enjoy.

My skin adores an I Want My Mummy bath and its delicious scent remains on your skin for the best part of the day after using it too.

Overall I love the I Want My Mummy bath bomb, it may not win any prizes for bath art but its scent and how it leaves my skin feeling makes it a firm favourite. It is very similar to the Butterball bath bomb, but I think I may just like it more. It’s nice to have a bath bomb to use that’s just as moisturising as Butterball but with a different scent.

Lush, consider yourself warned; I’ll be very disappointed if this bath bomb didn’t come back for Halloween next year!

NEW Black Rose Bath Bomb from Lush

The Black Rose Bath Bomb has had a mini makeover; I have received a handful of emails asking why the Black Rose bath bomb in my 2018 review looks a little different to the one currently available in store and online so I thought I’d do a shiny new review.

Originally the Black Rose bath bomb was 1 of the 6 Lush Japan, exclusive bath bombs that were available to purchase in very limited amounts at the 2018 Lush Showcase; Each of the 6 bath bombs were sold for one hour only over the 2-day event.

Since the 2018 Lush Showcase the Black Rose bath bomb had become more readily available. For a little while Lush did actually discontinue it but brought it back, albeit with a slightly different look, hence this review.

At the point of writing this review, the Black Rose bath bomb is listed as a Lush bestseller. Bringing it back was a very wise idea, indeed!

The Black Rose bath bomb is quite the piece of art and is made to look just like a rose. The original version had red petal edges that were hand painted on to each individual bath bomb, now it is just a plain black rose. Without the painted on petal-edges I imagine it is now much quicker to hand make. – Even without the red edges, the bath bomb’s attention to detail is still just as beautiful as its previous version. Based on its looks alone I can see why it is still so popular.

Black Rose is a part of the Rose Jam scent family, you will most likely recognise it from the Rose Jam shower gel. The Rose Jam fragrance features heavily in several different Lush products throughout the year, it’s very popular so I could tell upon first sniff at the Lush Showcase that the Black Rose bath bomb would sell well.

The Black Rose bath bomb contains rose, geranium and Sicilian lemon oil. Although Rose Jam is primarily a floral based, rose-rich scent, it also has other depths to it with the addition of the lemon oil, this pinch of sourness really rounds off the scent, it’s almost musky. Rose scents are stereotyped as a scent for older people but the Rose Jam scent is and can be enjoyed by both youngsters, old dears and all those in between!

Now I think I shall address its colour, this isn’t the first only black bath product Lush have released. The first black bath bomb in my memory is the Secret Arts jelly bomb. I will admit, before using that for the first time I was terrified at the prospect of a very dirty bath after use, much to my surprise it wasn’t messy at all and neither was the Black Rose bath bomb.

With every bath bomb (even the light coloured ones) I do recommend using them in a clean bath as any bath bomb colour will cling to residue left in the tub (even the almost invisible stuff like soap scum.) If you do find yourself in a situation where a simple rinse with the shower head doesn’t work, my secret weapon is dish washer soap.

A sponge, hot water and dish washer soap cuts through grime and grease fantastically! I actually use it to clean my bath all the time. It’s that good a combo.

Once the Black Rose bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with an explosion of black foam sizzling out of the bath bomb, slowly turning the bath water a dark and shimmery black. From this point on, this new version of the Black Rose bath bomb is exactly the same as its older version, Bath art and all.

As the Black Rose bath bomb charges around your bath spreading black foam it doesn’t take long for the hidden purply-pink innards of Black Rose to make an appearance. The photos I took and have put in this blog post do the bath art that Black Rose creates no justice at all.

It’s a fairly slow fizzer but once it has all gone you are left with jet black, shimmery water with an ever so slightly purple tinge. Overall I really did enjoy using the Black Rose bath bomb, it left my skin smooth and soft to the touch, its light scent remained on my skin for several hours after getting out of the bath too.

Apart from the now absent painted-on-red-petal-edges, there’s not much difference between this version of the Black Rose bath bomb and the older one. Black Rose isn’t one of my favourite bath bombs but I would happily use it again as I’m a fan of its Rose Jam scent.

The Elephant in the Tea Room Bath Bomb from Lush

The Elephant in the Tea Room Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition, 2022 Mother’s Day product. This year’s Mother’s Day line is packed full of some of the cutest products Lush have ever created, Lush have gone with an animal theme, and I can’t get enough of it!

The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb has been created to look like an elephant shaped tea pot. One side of it is pink the other is blue.

It is quite a big bath bomb at 220g (for size comparison purposes, the average sized bath bomb such as the Twilight bath bomb, is only 200g.) With half of it being my favourite colour pink, it was the first of the Mother’s Day products to catch my attention.

Lush have released previous, tea-orientated bath bombs before, the most recent being the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb, this product also happened to be shaped like a tea pot.

The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb boasts a brand new Lush scent.

It is described on the Lush website as a way to ‘bring afternoon tea to your bath time’. The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients; Bergamot and lemon myrtle oils, benzoin resinoid, soybean flour, powdered gunpowder tea and organic sencha tea powder.

Its scent is difficult to describe, aspects of it remind me of the Melusine bath bomb but it has a strong malt-biscuity-undertone to it too, this rounds off the sharpness of the lemon myrtle and bergamot oil in it.

I can’t really smell the tea aspect of it but as someone who doesn’t consume any caffeine and therefore isn’t familiar with it, I personally wouldn’t be able to distinguish the tea in it anyway.

As soon as the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb is introduced to your bath water you are welcomed with an explosion of blue and pink. A thin layer of silky soft foam spreads across the water’s surface as the bath bomb slowly bubbles away.

The scent of the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb really comes alive in the water, the heat of the water intensifies the scent somewhat. The sencha tea, bergamot and soya milk make for a super hydrating and immersive bath time experience.

I can only guess that this is how a tea bag feels when it is being brewed… 😆

Colour wise, I must admit I’m getting a little bored of all the pink and blue bath bombs that Lush keep releasing. As for the bath art that the, The Elephant in the Tea Room creates, it is very similar to that created by the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb, however it’s not nearly as pretty in the water.

It’s a relatively slow fizzer taking approximately 10 minutes to fully dissolve. Once the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb has fully dissolved you’re left with purple, cool-toned water. The bath bomb softens the water a lot and I find laying back in its waters for just a few minutes really soothes and hydrates my skin.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb. As fun as it is to be reintroduced to old, much-loved Lush scents through both old and new products, I am always welcome to trying new Lush scents.

I’m very interested in seeing whether Lush bring this scent out in other product formats in the future, I could see it working quite well in a shower gel format or even a body lotion.

Posh Chocolate Body Wash from Lush

The Posh Chocolate Body Wash was first released a few months ago, at the time of writing this review it is currently an all-year-round product that is available online and in all stores in the UK. *For everyone outside of the UK, have a look on your home countries websites to check for availability.*

Posh Chocolate contains hazelnut milk, fair trade organic aloe vera gel, cocoa powder, Australian sandalwood oil and vanilla absolute.

Fresh from the pot the Posh Chocolate body wash smells just like a tub of cocoa powder.

It’s scent however changes ever so slightly when you use it. The heat of the water and steam from the shower really brings out the vanilla and hazelnut in it.

I personally think it smells just like a pot of chocolate mousse.

Its consistency is also very similar to chocolate mousse, although – slightly thicker as it’s not as light. It’s almost like the butter icing you get on the last slice of a big cake, almost solid on the outside but fluffy and creamy underneath that very thin dry outer-layer.

At first, I was wary of how much to use as I had visions of huge brown smears all over my body – which I am sure we can all agree, is not something you want to have all over you, fresh out of the shower…

There was however no need to be afraid of it easily lathers up and just melts into the skin like butter on hot toast. No brown smears in sight!

A little amount of the Posh Chocolate body wash goes a very long way making it is excellent value for money. I of course always overindulge, using much more than is needed but my skin just can’t get enough of its soft and creamy formula.

I don’t think I have ever come across a body wash this nourishing before. It’s a game changer!

Its scent stays on your skin for a good few hours after you have used it and your skin stays hydrated and smooth right up until your next shower, there is no need to moisturise in between.

Overall, I am super impressed with the Posh Chocolate body wash, I can see it being a staple product in my collection for a very long time. I also feel as if it would work for me no matter the season. I am looking forward to using it next Summer as well as for the rest of the Winter we’re currently in too.

Rangoli Dreams Bath Bomb from Lush

This year Lush have released the Rangoli Dreams Bath Bomb in celebration of Diwali, the festival of lights.

The bath bombs name and design are inspired by Rangoli, an art form that originates from the Indian subcontinent, the patterns in Rangoli artwork are created on the floor or on a table using materials such as ground rice and flower petals.

It’s well worth doing a little research into the Rangoli art form as all of the creations are truly spectacular to look at. The Rangoli bath bomb is absolutely stunning and intricately detailed. It’s orange and yellow and is decorated with a simple sprinkle of shimmering gold on its top.

Rangoli Dreams is rather large, just about fitting in my small hand. It’s a flat bath bomb instead of the standard round shape, very similar to the likes of the Punkin Pumpkin and Karma Yantra bath bombs. The top of it is yellow and the base of it, orange.

The Rangoli Dreams bath bomb contains popping candy, coconut milk powder, rice starch, benzoin resinoid and the following oils – green Mandarin, rose, cardamom and almond.

Its scent is sophisticated yet delicate, my nose mostly picks up on the cardamom and sweetness of the green Mandarin but the rose oil gives it an almost powdery edge. It’s very unlike what I would normally go for at Lush but I couldn’t resist trying it and I am so pleased that I did.

As soon as the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb meets your bath water you are greeted with an explosion of yellow and orange foam. Slowly but surely the gold shimmer on the top of the bath bomb bleeds into the water creating the most stunning swirling bath art.

The shimmering water and the swirling patterns the bath bomb creates while floating around your bath is simply mesmerising.

The popping candy starts to snap, crackle a pop within about 30 seconds of the bath bomb being put into the water, it starts off slow but doesn’t take long to take over the show, bath art and popping candy wise, the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb really puts on a show.

With the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb being flat, I expected it to dissolve fairly quickly it however stands its ground, not completely disappearing for a full 10 minutes.

Laying back in its cardamom-rich scented waters is truly relaxing, I always prefer hot-hot baths as I find the heat really helps sore muscles. Rangoli Dreams and hot-hot water are a match made in heaven.

The added coconut milk powder also adds a silkiness to the bath water, my skin has never felt softer after a bath. I’m really glad that I ordered 2 of these bath bombs as it is an incredibly fun bath bomb and quite unique to any others currently available.

Its scent although a lot more subtle than the bath bomb itself, stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. The popping candy also never seemed to stop, still crackling away as the bath water drained from my tub.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb, and I hope it comes back again next year. I’d love to see some more Diwali products in the future and am interested in finding out whether Lush will be using the Rangoli Dreams scent in other future products too.

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!

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 one 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.

Diamond Dust Bath Bomb from Lush

Set to be officially released as a mainline product in the late Autumn of 2021, 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.

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 very expensive neroli oil, then there is a subtle but 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 will leave you feeling refreshed and will also lift your spirits.

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 glittery potential.

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.

The Diamond Dust bath bomb is set to be released as a mainline product this November. Unfortunately I feel that the bath bombs extortionate price (£8.50 each) will however put a lot of customers off.
