Recently, Lush decided to discontinue some of their Oxford Street exclusive bath products and we said goodbye to a few I had sadly yet to try. Ylang Song Bombshell isn’t being discontinued but I thought I better try it quick incase there’s another purge!
I didn’t know much about this bath bomb but the fact I knew it contained petals made me excited to try it! Although it looks fairly plain, I think there’s something quite elegant about it’s design, with just a single purple everlasting flower petal.
Ylang Song Bombshell is scented with Ylang Ylang Oil, as the name suggests. Ylang Ylang is great for brightening your mood with it’s fragrant and heady sweet smelling floral scent. It pairs beautifully with other aromas and Lush have mixed it with woody Rosewood, uplifting and fresh Neroli and the familiar smell of Rose resulting in a very fresh and natural sweet floral scent that evokes a real sense of nature and serenity. Its a fairly strong fragrance but delicate on the nose and mind too.
In the water, a relatively fast fizzer, the bath bomb almost instantly reveals its hidden colour, a beautiful light green, which clouds the water fairly quickly. Halfway through the fizz, a handful of Rose, Peony and Everlasting Flower petals emerge, decorating the surface. There’s no bath art but the petals would only get lost if there was. I love having petals in my bath so it’s a winner for me already and it did look beautiful. Reminding me of a floral meadow, with the delicate scent still very much present, helping me picture that scene.
Once I was in I noticed how soft the water felt, I didn’t realise but Ylang Song Bombshell contains a generous amount of Fine Sea Salt which softens the water by removing impurities. I noticed my skin was particularly soft and smooth once I was dry too.
In conclusion, I’m really glad I got my hands on this bath bomb and I really enjoyed using it. I can still smell the beautiful fragrance on my skin a good couple of hours later so that’s a bonus! This product is a definite must try if you’re unsure.
