Lemon Butterfly is the last of three limited edition bath bombs shaped like butterflies that Lush have released for Mothers Day 2019. Whilst the citrus scent doesn’t massively appeal to me, I loved both Rose Butterfly and Wild Butterfly a lot so I was still rather eager to use this one too!
So called Lemon Butterfly because, yep you guessed it, it’s because of what features in its ingredients list. It does indeed contain Lemon Oil, but also Sweet Wild Orange Oil too. It’s a very uplifting and bright fragrance that you might recognise from a now discontinued massage bar, From Dusk Til Dawn. I’ve always said I’m not a huge lover of citrus scents but I can appreciate how invigorating and energising they are and this was no different.
With my third butterfly bath bomb, I had now realised that all efforts to get them to float delicately on top of the water were futile so I simply placed it in and watched as the green and yellow colours fizzed out. Like the previous two, Lemon Butterfly was mesmerising to watch. The fact that different coloured bath bomb mixes are randomly sprinkled into the moulds, doesn’t only create the beautiful marble-effect patterns on the product but also allows the fizzing to look wonderful! Before long the butterfly had mostly broken up and I hopped in to a vibrant green bath,
Whilst I was in I did notice that the scent wasn’t as strong as it was before the product had dissolved but obviously that’s not a bad thing for me personally! The water was also filled with gorgeous sparkling lustre floating around, attaching itself to my skin.
A great thing about citrus fruits and their oils is that they’re amazingly cleansing for the skin due to the enzymes they contain, which meant I left my bath feeling super clean and fresh. The scent, although weakened, was still relatively present on my skin afterwards, as was a light dusting of glitter.
Although I wouldn’t use this particular bath bomb again, I’m glad I have at least once because I’m so in love with the butterfly bath bombs, they really are spectacular and you must try at least one! In case you didn’t know, there’s actually a fourth called Shijimi Butterfly, which I hope to get my hands on very soon when I visit the newest Lush store in Liverpool! I’m buzzing, stay tuned!
