This Bath Bomb was invented to celebrate Hillary Clinton’s win in the 2016 presidential election.
This is what I’d like to say but unfortunately we all know that’s not true.
Madame President was actually created as a new product for Mother’s Day 2018. I guess even if we don’t have an actual female president, we all have our own ones right at home.
Madame President is a beautiful bath bomb, with a very ‘American’ design, it’s half blue and half pink, adorned with stars and is full of golden lustre.
This bath bomb features a brand new scent made up of Grapefruit and Petitgrain Oils. The two oils combined give Madame President a really pungent smell. Petitgrain comes from the leaves of the bitter orange tree meaning it has a fresh green scent albeit somewhat sour smelling. The addition of uplifting, antiseptic Grapefruit Oil gives a slight citrusy hint and I feel like it’s a smell that’s rather odd but at the same time, you can’t help but carry on smelling. If you don’t like it at first, give it another try and see what you think.
Once popped in the bath, the two main colours mix and she produces a vivid purple colour as you’d expect. The gold star on the pink half is full of gold lustre which fills the water with a lovely shimmer. The mixture of the purple with the gold glitter gives Madame President a really magical and enchanted vibe.
An interesting note is that the white stars on the blue half take longer to dissolve than the blue surrounding. As you can see in the picture below it looks really cool!
Because the scent from Madame President is very strong, your whole bathroom is filled with it throughout your bath, helping you feel uplifted and energised; you can also smell it on your skin for a good while after drying off.
I think this particular bath bomb is one of the best in recent times, although it’s a Mother’s Day exclusive I can see it doing really well as an all year round product as it’s so unique and different from anything else. I really hope Lush bring her back for 2019 and they should 100% release it if we’re ever blessed with having a female president.
