If I had to pick a favourite cuisine, Japanese would definitely be up there and I particularly love Sushi. So you’d be right if you were guessing I was rather interested in trying this bath bomb! Sushi’s rather unique in the fact that the orange centre is actually a piece of Lush Fun!
Surrounding the orange piece of fun is a plain white bath bomb disc of ‘rice’ which is coated on the side with sparkly black to represent the seaweed you see wrapped around some types of sushi. Throughout the whole product is a fairly simple scent of Brazilian Orange and Sicilian Red Mandarin. Whilst not being very pungent, the aroma is rather pleasant, being fruity with citrusy elements. What’s odd, and after reading other reviews on this bath bomb that tell me I’m not the only one who thinks so, is that Sushi has somewhat of a ‘savoury’ smell akin to soy sauce! I’m not sure if its our minds playing tricks on us because of the association of soy sauce and sushi but even still, it definitely has this strange savoury hint.
Sushi began to immediately fizz once it came into contact with the water, with the black outer layer quickly dispersing across the surface of the water. The white section fizzed away, sinking to the bottom as it couldn’t carry the weight of the fun inside it. As expected, there’s no colour and no bath art. Annoyingly, the black colouring did end up bunching together and staining the edges of my bath.
I can’t say the end result after the fizz was very pretty, but once I started using the fun to wash my body with, the murky grey became a sort of murky pink, which I guess is slightly better. Although I could have used the fun piece to add bubbles to my bath or to wash my hair with, I love the creamy soft lather fun produces when used as a soap so that’s how I used it! The fun was by far the most strongly scented part of the product.
As the scent wasn’t massively fragrant to start with, it’s no surprise that it didn’t hold it’s own whatsoever in the water, nor did it leave any remaining aroma on my skin once I was out which is a shame. My skin was very soft though, I’ll give it that.
In conclusion, I don’t think I’ll want to use Sushi again, the lack of scent coupled with the staining made it a really naff experience in all honesty. It’s no surprise it’s getting discontinued.
