Lush bath bomb
I dont usually buy Lush products because its not my favourite brand but I heard via a friend of mine that they are supposed to smell good if placed on a warm radiator. I tried this and no, it didn't work as a room scenter.
The bath bomb is a pink Sphere with the name Lush on the ball and bits of what looks like foliage sticking out of the bath ball.
It does smell good if you are partial to the scent of rose, and This scent apparently comes from the flower petals of the damask rose as well as rose oil from the same plant and is advertised as being a run through a rose garden! For me not the best description.
It does dissolve easily when held under running water and as soon as the water hits the bath bomb the smell is released. The rose smell is quite strong but not unpleasant and leaves the bathroom smelling very floral. This I like but unfortunately as the bath bomb starts to dissolve, the bits of foliage started to be released into the bath. This leaves me with pink bath water with bits of what look like stalk and dried petals lying in the water and up the sides of the bath. Certainly not very enticing for someone who really likes a warm bubbly bath.
After my bath I didn't feel as though I had had a really good clean, but this is perhaps because of the rose oils it contains. However, saying that my skin didn't feel particularly moisturised but it did feel a bit oily and I did have to moisturise it well afterwards.
It costs £2.65 and if this is for one bath then it's quite pricey. I shared mine with Little Miss by dissolving half of it under running water and then using the other half myself. Standing it on the side of the bath does leave the surface very pink and in need of a clean.
For what it is, even had I really liked the bath bomb, this is an expensive product for one bath, so my suggestion for any bath bomb is to share it. Alternatively Lush could make them smaller as I certainly wouldn't need that much of the product for one bath. It's not the most pleasant product I've ever used in my bath and I especially disliked it when bits of stalk were still attached to me when I got out of the bath!
On a plus point I liked the smell but because in general I didn't like it I wouldn't recommend it and award it two stars.
Definitely not a product I would buy again.
Thanks for reading
