Back again for another beauty themed Wednesday.
I really should think of a snazzy name for Wednesdays like I have for Movie Monday and Sunday Book Club … if any of you reading this think of something, help a girl out.
Today, the beauty product is bath bombs and most specifically – lush bath bombs. I noticed that over the last 6-8 months I was buying other people lush bath bombs as gifts but wasn’t getting myself any. Now I, like most people, love a good bath. Hot bath, bubbles, some essential oils, maybe even a glass of wine if you are feeling fancy and just relax. There is something about a nice bath after a long day or even a long week that is a cure to all things horrid.
Moving on, after noticing that I had been buying lush bath bombs for everyone but me, I was lucky enough to be gifted two by my partner. I have played around with them both in the last week and I’m here to give a short and sweet review for you.
- Dragons egg £3.95
The product description reads
I’ll be honest. I was ever so slightly disappointed with this product. In store, it was advertised as containing popping candy and yet I couldn’t see any popping candy. The bath bomb fizzed but didn’t do anything overly dramatic. Maybe I was expecting too much from the product. On the bright side it smelled lush, get it? LUSH No, okay…I’ll see myself out
The scent of citrus is the most prominent smell but it didn’t drown out the jasmine.
It took a while for the Dragon’s Egg to “crack open” and begin to transform the water into an organe-ish colour. I can’t say I was a fan of the colour, it looked similar to when you wash off your fake tan and as you can imagine, that’s not an appealing colour for a bath.
But thankfully, rhere is not massive amounts of glitter in this product. It smells amazing and the smell stays around for an hour or two afterwards leaving you, your hair and your bathroom all smelling fresh. My skin felt super soft after using this and when topped with a hydrating moisturiser I felt the affects for days after use.
The bath bomb is powdery and as such there is also a lot of fall out, which I failed to consider and I made a mess everywhere before dropping the product in the bath. I did enjoy the bath bomb but I did expect more. I liked that it was hydrating to the skin, leaves no orange patches and it smells heavenly.
I would say that this bath bomb would be great for kids, to keep them occupied in the bath as it is a slow fizzer, or for those that prefer smells over colours.
- Intergalactic bath bomb £4.25
This one, I loved!
Product sumary reads:
This bath bomb does have tons of glitter in it and I mean tons. For this reason it would be great to use before a special occasion, a night out or something along those lines, as you could have an all over body glow.
It looks incredible, so incredible I almost didn’t want to get into the bath. The water becomes a rich blue with hints of glitter. There is also some slight fall out with this bath bomb. There is less fallout than the previous bath bomb and the intergalactic bath bomb is visually more appealing but sadly, it doesn’t have as much of a pleasant aroma as the dragons egg does.
This bath bomb fizzes from the word go and leaves behind your own miniature version of space with swirls of pink and blue. I felt like a child with how much I enjoyed this bath bomb.
I enjoyed it so much I’m going to a few to store the next time I go to Lush.
That is all for today folks. I know today has been a short post but there is a lot more content coming up that will be far more detailed than this. Just hold tight as exam season is coming close. If all goes to plan I will have some scheduled posts ready and armed to go, to satisfy your needs for beauty, books and movies.
As always my comments, social media and emails are open for suggestions, questions etc.
Stay blessed and happy and Ill be back Sunday.
