Back again for another beauty themed Wednesday.
I really should think of a snazzy name for wednesdays like I have for movie Monday and book club sunday… 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 hadn’t allowed myself to enjoy the amazingness that is lush bath bombs I was lucky enough to be gifted two by my boyfriend. I have played around with them both in the last week and I’m here to give a little review for you.
- Dragons egg £3.95
Dragon’s Egg makes bathtime exciting as it fizzes and crackles and changes the colour of your water to a gorgeous citrusy gold. Its scent is reminiscent of lemon sherbet, with a hint of jasmine, leaving you feeling great and ready for a good day. Its citrus scents leave you feeling transformed and invigorated.
Firstly, I would like to say I was kind of disappointed with this product. It’s advertised, in store, as containing popping candy and I can tell you that there was no popping candy. The bath bomb fizzed but didn’t do anything overly dramatic. However, on the bright side it smelled lush, get it? LUSH No, okay… There is a strong citrus smell but I picked up hints of other essentials oils and smells including jasmine.
It takes a while for the “Dragon’s Egg” to crack open and begin to turn the water an orange-yellow 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 a great colour.
What is a positive is that there 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 you skin feels soft for days after.
There is also a lot of fall out. The bath bomb is powdery which I failed to consider and I made a white powdered mess on myself before dropping the product in the bath.
I did enjoy the bath bomb but for such an awesome name, I expected more. I liked that it was hydrating to the skin, leaves no strange 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!
Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.
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 radiance.
It looks incredible, so incredible I almost didn’t want to get into the bath. Your 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 more visually pretty however it doesn’t have as much of a pleasant aroma as the dragons egg does.
This bath bomb fizzers 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 would love to purchase this bath bomb to enjoy the experience all over again.
That is all for today folks. I know today has been a short post, for me especially 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.
