Bath, Bath Bombs

Eyeball Bath Bomb

A new product for this year’s Halloween range is Eyeball Bath Bomb.

It’s design is basically, like the name suggests, an eyeball. It looks kinda basic from the outside, but the real treat is on the inside and what this ballistic does in the water!

In all honesty, the scent is very un-Halloween and is surprisingly quite floral. The main scents you first notice are Ylang-Ylang and Lavender giving Eyeball a delicate powdery and pretty, yet slightly herbal note, which is quite unsuited to the product. Then a subtle hint of Brazilian Orange Oil turns the fragrance into a more uplifting and cheerful smell, while Rose Absolute gives a gentle, yet seductive layer.

Though it is a really nice smell and actually I’d love a year-round product with this scent, I’m just a tad confused as why they used such a scent for this particular product.

Once placed in the bath, Eyeball immediately foams up and spins over itself, releasing tiny ripples of black and red from the ‘pupil’  throughout the mainly white foam. It’s a slow fizzer, so it’s great to watch as the red starts to ‘bleed’ out into the bath leaving a trail behind the product as it floats around.

The best thing about this product is what happens about half way through the show. If you pick it up out of the water it literally looks like a bleeding eyeball! Legit! Not gonna lie, there’s something that’s somewhat unsettling about watching it fizz and bleed and drip down the white coloured ball, but it’s super cool that Lush created something that can do this!  It’s like, the scariest product Lush have ever done!

The smell stays with you throughout the display right up until the bath bomb has fizzed away, when it mostly disappears and you’re just left with a subtle hint of the scent and diluted red/orangey waters.

My skin felt really good after my bath, super smooth and cleansed without feeling too dry, my only wish is that there was some reminder that I had even had a bath in the form of a smell.

Make sure you get a chance to use an Eyeball Bath Bomb before the Halloween period is over, although it could come back next year, I wouldn’t hold your breath!
