Speciality drinks such as Charcoal Lattes, Matcha Lattes and Turmeric Lattes are massively on trend at the moment. Turmeric is said to have huge benefits for the body and actually makes for a surprisingly nice hot beverage.
Lush’s Turmeric Latte Bath Bomb is one of my favourites from the 30th anniversary collection for sure. It’s a gorgeous design with a light tan colour that turmeric lattes usually are, an exterior inspired by latte art and a heavy dusting of sparkling golden glitter. Featuring well blended notes of coffee, cocoa and spice, it’s such a comforting and beautiful scent.
It very much reminds me of the scent of Cup O’ Coffee, which happens to be one of my favourite products. However, Turmeric Latte doesn’t actually feature coffee as an ingredient, and the drink rarely does either. This bath bomb contains a mixture of sweet Vanilla, with further vanillary notes from Tonka and Benzoin with a warmth coming from the Turmeric content as well as a creaminess from Coconut Milk Powder. The resulting fragrance is like that of a sweet chai. Rich and sweet, yet deep and spicy and ultimately very warming.
On the skin, Tonka, Vanilla and Benzoin are known for their soothing and calming effects. Turmeric contains many antioxidants and is also antibacterial, promoting bright, clear and healthy looking skin. Adding highly nutritious coconut milk in a powder form is ideal for soothing the skin and locking in moisture.
Once popped into the bath, Turmeric Latte erupts thick creamy white and gold streams onto the surface of the water, decorated with golden sparkles. It creates beautiful bath art and looks very much like you’d expect (and want!) your turmeric latte to look like from a coffee shop. After a while it mixed into a brownish tan colour, but the amount of visible golden lustre floating around below the water was enough to keep you from thinking the water was boring and dull. It was a fairly slow fizzer, allowing you to really marvel at the beauty and the strong aroma exuding from it.
The water itself felt fairly soft but I felt so comforted by the fragrance, that warm and snug feeling was all I was focusing on. I did notice that my skin was gorgeously soft once I was towelled off, thanks to that Coconut Milk Powder and was coated with an impressive, but not extreme amount of glitter. Turmeric Latte left me feeling energised and content and I was happily smelling my arms for the rest of my evening.
In conclusion, I love this bath bomb and I really think it deserves a place in the year round range once the 30th anniversary is over. I used it with my new Turmeric Latte Shower Gel for that double dosage and you can look forward to my post on that very soon!
