Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb From Lush

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb.pngLast year (2016) the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb was revamped beyond recognition for Lush’s Mother’s Day range. With it being completely unrecognisable to versions previously released, I was very excited to get hold of a few. The newly designed Rose Bombshell was a tremendously positive and much needed face lift, I loved it. I was therefore super happy when I found out that Lush had decided to bring it back for this years Valentine’s day range!

Changing from a plain white coloured product resembling Lush Oxford Street’s Ylang Song bath bomb to an almost neon pink one is always a good move in my personal pink-mad opinion. Not that I don’t love the Ylang Song bath bomb, I just tend to gravitate towards the pink products more because I’m pink obsessed.

Upon hitting the water the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb immediately starts to fizz. It slowly changes your bath water to a crisp and pale pink.

As the Rose Bombshell slowly fizzes away its greenish blue interior begins to show. As this external layer of the bath bomb is gradually revealed the bath water becomes a deeper more vibrant pink.

Packed with rose absolute this bath bomb is a real treat for dull and tired skin. With the Rose Bombshell having both skin-soothing and moisturising properties, it is a bath bomb that you will want to use time and time again.

After getting out of this bath I could still smell the light floral and rose fragrance of Rose Bombshell on my skin. It wasn’t until I got out of the bath that I truly started to appreciate its fresh, beautiful and lingering scent.

Once this fantastically zingy-floral bath bomb reaches its last layer a handful of soft yellow rose petals burst out floating to the water surface. Like the Lovestruck bubble bar, Rose Bombshell also contains geranium oil, I am not a fan of geranium at all, Rose Bombshell’s other ingredients seem to however compliment it well making it a fragrance I do enjoy.

The multicoloured bubbles that Rose Bombshell left on the surface of the bath were so, so pretty. I just had to take a few more photos before I got into full bath mode.

Out of all of the seasonal, limited edition products that Lush threw at us last year (2016) this limited edition bath bomb was one of my favourites by far.

I have said several times in previous reviews that some of the limited edition products such as Rose Bombshell would make a fantastic addition to the staple, every day store products. A year on and I still feel that Rose Bombshell is worthy of that.

It really is a remarkably refreshing bath bomb that I feel I will never, ever get tired of.

Roses All The Way Soap from Lush

We haven’t even finished the first quarter of 2016 and already Lush have brought out more new and exciting products than I can keep up with. We’ve had the Valentine’s Day range, the Mother’s Day range and of course the Easter range as well as everything else in-between.

In all honesty I am literally stuck in a state of disbelief that we have actually already entered March?! As the saying goes – time flies when you’re having fun and with all of the new Lush goodies on offer, by me, fun is most certainly being had!

Today I am reviewing the Roses All The Way Soap, never before been released – this beautiful heart shaped, rose detailed soap had me intrigued within seconds of stumbling across it.

The Roses All The Way Soap is a generous size that takes up the best part of my hand. Comparing it to the usual, rectangular soap slabs its unique design, size and shape make it a lot easier to grip when using it in the bath or shower. For me, as a disabled person my particular needs in a soap are catered for just on the fact that it is easier to grip. Until my Lush addiction hit me bad, I was never a fan of floral scents, I don’t know why but I had always associated rose, lavender and other flowery scents with getting old.

Slowly but surely the Rose Jam scent however grew on me, alongside that, a lot of other scents that I never thought I’d enjoy all of a sudden became desirable.  I’d go as far as to say that my sense of smell has matured since joining the Lush crowd. I am now recognising and appreciating scents I had never really taken much notice of before. Lush has opened my eyes and although I am still far from an expert when it comes to scents, I am getting better!

Roses All The Way Soap is of course primarily a rose scent. At first I thought it was the Rose Jam scent but after a while I realised it actually has a softer floral tone and is actually quite sweet, almost zesty.  The more I used it, the more prominent the lemon oil in it appeared to be.

The idea behind this soap was inspired by Alice In Wonderland’s ‘painting the roses red’ part of the book. The back of the soap is white, as you use it, its red side starts to turn a light pink, eventually fading to a bright white. Any one who is familiar with the Alice in Wonderland story will know that the Queen of Hearts angrily demands that all of the white roses in her court yard are to be painted red. Painting the white roses red is exactly what her pack-of-card guards set upon doing.

Several hours after my bath I can still smell this soaps soft and zingy fragrance on my skin. It lathered up well and didn’t dry out my skin which has amazed me as most bars of soap do, especially those that are primarily floral.

Overall I am really impressed with Roses All The Way, it’s a wonderful addition to the Lush Soap family. Since enjoying it so much I have made it my new Lush goal to try several more Lush soaps in the near future. Watch this space!
