When you first walk into a Lush shop I will admit that the Sakura Bath Bomb isn’t the first bath bomb that you see, overshadowed by other much brighter and bolder products people tend to miss it completely.
It didn’t take me very long at all to get bitten by the Lush bug, I think out of all of the Lush products on offer bath bombs are probably still my favourite, when I say I’ve tried them all, I really do mean it. 😂
As you cans see from the photo above no Sakura bath bomb is quite the same. They of course all have the same ingredients in, looks wise they are however all unique.
Some are white all over with a few splashes of pink, some have a small sprinkling of salt on, others are even heavily speckled with pink and/or green. They do look fantastically odd all placed together!
The Sakura bath bomb is Japanese inspired, based on the beautiful cherry blossom trees it is designed to evoke the burst of optimism that the first sign of spring brings.
When I was little we had the most beautiful cherry blossom tree in our garden, I used to love seeing our cherry blossom tree bloom with beautiful light pink flowers. I distinctly remember being beside myself with anger and sadness when a tree surgeon came over to ‘trim’ our cherry blossom tree.
I think I was about 4 years old as my paternal nan was present. “YOU ARE KILLING MY TREE! YOUR ARE HORRIBLE! LEAVE MY TREE ALONE!” I screamed at him through the window, hiccups, snot and sobs galore… My family OF COURSE thinks this whole debacle is hilarious to this day, and they wonder why I grew into an anxious adult…
The Sakura bath bomb has calming properties which actually happen to come in handy for when I am feeling anxious.
If you have a heavy day ahead the Sakura bath bomb makes for a fantastic morning bath-time treat. It always helps clear my head of stress and worries leaving me in a much more positive state of mind, I feel more able to face the next 24 hours. #YouveGotThis
The Sakura bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer in comparison to others of its size like the Fizzbanger or the Frozen bath bomb. As soon as it is placed in to the water the water softens because of the sea salt, the beautiful Sakura scent also hits you.
When looking at Sakura’s ingredients list I imagined it to be quite a fruity product, the mimosa and jasmine within it however dominates the lemon oil and orange flower absolute. Once out of the bath the scent stays with you for the whole day. It has a very light and refreshing floral scent. Despite this I would still class the Sakura as a citrusy product – Although, if you’re looking for a dominantly strong citrus bath bomb, you are probably better off grabbing something else.
The lemon oil and orange flower absolute may not be easily detectable by scent within the Sakura bath bomb, their magical uplifting properties however shine through when you spring out of the bath cheerier than when you got in.
If you prefer the more gentle bath bombs, Sakura is a good one to go for. Once it has fully dissolved you are left with a small amount of soft pink and white bubbles, perfect for dry and tired skin.
I know quite a lot of people go for a bath bomb purely for a colourful and artistic bath, although Sakura is rather dull in comparison to other more colourful bath bombs, I still think it’s worthy of its staple product status, I cannot recommend it enough! 😊
