When the photos of Lush’s 2017 Mother’s day range were released the Ups-A-Daisy Bath Bomb is what first caught my attention. Shaped just like a giant daisy their bright and bold colours are perfect for the Spring time.
Some have confused Ups-A-Daisy as being available in 2 different colours like the Mum bath bomb however, this in not the case. One side of the bath bomb is orange and pink, while the other side is yellow and turquoise. Both sides are visible in the photo above.
The Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb is actually great value for money. I honestly expected it to be a lot more expensive, getting anything cheaper is of course always more than welcome. I know many people have noticed that there has been a slight price-hike in some Lush products, although this is frustrating, it’s just one of those things. Ingredient prices are always expected to fluctuate depending on a huge number of different factors that are beyond anyones control.
The only thing that doesn’t fluctuate in regards to Lush products is their outstanding quality. The best of quality is always a guarantee when it comes down to Lush, I therefore don’t mind if the price of a product does go up a little, obviously the cheaper the better (I’d be mad to say otherwise) BUT, always getting great quality, ethically sourced products is what is the most important thing to me.
The one and only thing that stopped me in my tracks when it came down to the Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb was deciding what side of it I would put face down in the bath water. It sent my OCD into overdrive. I am a huge geek and like to experience every last second of a Lush product, it killed me to not be able to have both sides on top, I however had picked up 2 of these bath bombs so that I could try it the other way round in another bath – all was not lost!
Upon first use I used the Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb orange and pink side up. As soon as the bath bomb hit the water it began to foam. Slowly but surely the Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb fizzes away creating pretty streaks of orange, pink, yellow and blue.
What I wasn’t prepared for was how long it took to dissolve. I love a slow fizzer as I like to take pictures of all the pretty patterns a bath bomb makes, after 10 minutes I however got bored and dunked them under as you can see in the 3rd photo, above and below.
Scent wise, I have heard a lot of people compare this bath bomb to Frozen. I can see what they mean, Ups-A-Daisy is however less sweet and more floral. I’m not a huge fan of floral scents and it did take me a while to get used to this bath bomb, once in the bath I was however very happy with it.
When the bath bomb is orange and pink side up, to look at it reminds me of the Yoga bath bomb. When it is yellow and blue side up it reminds me a little of a mixture of the Yoga and Fizzbanger bath bomb.
Looking on Instagram I can see a lot of people seem to favour having it orange and pink side up. Both sides were beautiful, I found that the yellow and blue side up was a little more colourful though. I also recommend waiting for the bath bomb to do its thing, it is a very slow fizzer but the colours that streak out of it at the very end are on par with last years Somewhere Over the Rainbow bath bomb.
Overall I really like the Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb, it isn’t my favourite of the Mother’s Day range but it does put on a very beautiful show and I am glad that I tried it both sides up. I definitely recommend trying this bath bomb twice as either sides put on a very different show.
