Lucky Cat is an exclusive bath bomb to the Harajuku store but will soon be released online and in some stores to celebrate the 30th birthday of the first bath bomb, invented by Mo Constantine. It also made an appearance at the new naked store in Manchester.
It is quite a small sized bath bomb which on first impressions, I was a little disappointed with. People had been saying it was Sex Bomb scented however since I’ve had it in my possession, it’s definitely part of the ‘Ghost’ scent family! It’s a lovely botanical blend of jasmine, neroli and ylang ylang which is punchy yet quite subtle. Some floral scents set off my headaches (like Eyeball bath bomb from Halloween 2018) but this one is actually really lovely. Unfortunately, the lovely lustrous pink appearance is only an overspray whilst the inside colour leaves a lot to be desired. When this bomb hit the water I was actually really impressed and whilst filming the demo I couldn’t help but think WOAH. As soon as it started to fizz it created a bunch of foam and reacted with the bubble bar I had used in the water. There wasn’t much bath art however the fragrance really did smacked me in the face, I didn’t really mind all too much. Upon closer examination, I noticed cute little cellulose stars in the centre which really adds to the cute aspect.
Description taken from Lush ‘ Feelin’ lucky? This pink kitty beckons you to the bath with its botanical scent. Fizzing fast into fluffy fuchsia waters, Lucky Cat’s multi-colored stars burst from the center, waving in good fortune and leaving you feline fine. With a classic, botanical blend of jasmine absolute, neroli and ylang ylang, this is one fresh and floral kitty that’ll leave you feeling brand mew. ‘
Moon spell is an exclusive bath bomb to the Harajuku store but will soon be released online and in some stores to celebrate the 30th birthday of the first bath bomb, invented by Mo Constantine. It comes in two halves and they fit together to create a full size bath bomb. I first thought this product would have been lavender scented but on first sniff it was rather subtle and just smelled like generic candy.. almost like a weak scented love boat bath bomb. The ingredients don’t reveal much in regards to the scent apart from brazilian orange oil. The pink half of Moon Spell is actually a jelly bomb! When in the water, the jelly created was quite delicate and not thick or gloopy like other Lush jelly bombs and there was even tiny little hearts if you looked carefully. It dissolved within a few minutes and didn’t leave any residue around the bath tub. The blue half of Moon Spell was completely solid. It would sink whenever I let go until it started to dissolve and shrink in size. The trail it left on the surface of the water reminded me of the core of Thundersnow bath bomb from Christmas 2017. Check out the pics to see what I mean!
Description taken from Lush ‘ Are you waning or waxing? This double-sided bomb balances things out with a blend of blue and pink that can be used separately or together. Moisturizing carrageenan extract soothes and hydrates dry skin, while Brazilian orange oil tones and brightens. Let your half moons dance and fizz across the surface of the water as they swirl to form one beautiful purple hue. ‘
Love Boat Bath Bomb is a fun slow fizzer which releases a torrent of bright colours when hitting the waters surface. If you look on the base of the bath bomb, there are little red biodegradable love hearts which dissolve in the water. It has a super sweet fragrance made up of sicilian lemon and sweet orange oils – it reminds me of candy, more specifically love hearts. To me this is the same scent as the ‘Mum’ bath bomb from 2017.
Since being released again in 2019, the inventor Gary Shears has made it known that he has made a few tweaks to his creation. The fragrance is stronger than before and the design is a bit more robust and defined from the bath bomb moulding process.
Aubergine bath bomb is yet another cheeky emoji inspired bath bomb for the 2019 Valentine’s Day range! The scent of this phallic bath bomb may seem familiar to you.. it is indeed 29 high street scented which is reminiscent of what a Lush store smells like as you walk down the street towards those open doors. When visiting the Newcastle store, I was advised to stick the tip in first for its maximum performance in the water. This makes sure that the blue core spurts out to create a stunning show of bath art, reminding many lushies of the beloved Northern Lights bath bomb. Whilst the scent is lovely, I find it is weaker than others in the water and could probably do with upping the concentration next year if it was to make a return.
Peachy bath bomb is a new addition to the 2019 Valentines Day range at Lush. At first sniff it smells almost identical to the kiss me quick washcard from the 2018 Valentines Day range. It’s similar to Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb but with a more ‘natural’ peach scent – less synthetic, not as sweet and with more depth. The scent is very strong in the water and lasts on the skin! Not only am I impressed with the scent, but can we talk about the design?! Inspired by the popular emoji, commonly used to portray a widely loved part of the body, the quirky take on a peach works wonderfully well as a bath bomb and is sprayed in a coating of lustrous pink with a colourful core.
Cheery Christmas bath bomb appeared at Christmas in 2018 for the first time after being created by the talented Gary Shears, an inventor at Lush. The scent is brand new and has similarities to the likes of tennis ball bath bomb but a unique fruitiness that seems inspired by the plum rain scent family also. The sicilian lemon and buchu oils make for a refreshing experience in the tub and paired with the mesmerising bath art created by the hidden blue core, I would say it was my favourite bath bomb from the Christmas 2018 range.
Waving not drowning bath bomb was a Lush Kitchen exclusive – originally in 2016 and again in 2017. The one pictured was made on 5th september 2016 and when fresh, was an extremely fast fizzer but this one performed rather well considering its more than 3 years old. Its full of lavender oil, ylang ylang oil and fennel oil. These 3 create a calming and herbal yet subtle and pleasant to the nose fragrance. I really enjoy using this product on a night to relax!
