This year’s easter saw the release of some exciting new products. One interesting idea that Lush have had is their Fun Eggs, which are essentially two halves of an egg shaped bath bomb, with a piece of Fun inside them! You can opt for easter themed eggs with either a chick or a bunny inside them, or choose to hatch a dinosaur and get either a Brontosaurus or a Stegosaurus model. One amazing thing about both dinosaur Fun Eggs, is that they share their scent with an old favourite bath bomb, Space Girl!
I used to love Space Girl so I’m super delighted to see the scent being reused! It’s a fairly fruity scent, with uplifting and sherbety notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot Oils at the forefront, yet theres a thread of violety floral notes from underneath and a sweetness that comes from Almond Essential Oil. Lush describe the scent as being like peaches and strawberries with evolving violet notes and I can definitely see where this description is coming from. Comparing the bath bomb with the actual piece of fun, I would definitely say that the fun had the strongest smell, yet both were fairly strong!
As Brontosaurus Fun Egg contains three different parts, you could easily save it for three different baths and for only £8.95, that’s pretty good going. But of course I used the whole thing at once.
I delicately placed each half in the water, with the cute little Brontosaurus sitting in one like a boat. The one it was sat in fizzed a lot faster due to the weight of its passenger but both halves sent beautiful streams of purples and blues into the water which danced around each other, continuing even when both halves had almost fully dissolved. It was spectacular to watch, both colours looked so beautiful together, and the resulting opaque bluey-purple water was lovely. It felt rather luxurious too, and whilst there’s nothing in the ingredients list that tells me it’s particularly hydrating, the water certainly felt super soft.
Each Fun Egg contains a whopping amount of popping candy and whilst I’ve experienced bath bombs that feature it before, this was another level and certainly contained much more than the likes of The Experimenter, it was so loud!
I decided to use the Brontosaurus as my body wash for this bath, which produced a fragrant lather wonderfully. If you’ve never experienced Lush’s Fun before, it feels very much like Play-Doh but it’s soap! You can wash your body with it, shave with it, use it as shampoo or you can even use it as a bubble bar and create bubbles from it by holding it under the running tap! I found that it felt so soft and creamy as I was lathering it up all over my body and whilst the scent from the actual bath bomb was relatively sticking around, I could smell it a lot stronger whilst I was using the fun.
Once I was out, my skin felt silky and smooth and I could notice a faint, but distinct reminder of the lovely scent on my skin which I was very happy with! I also noticed a fair amount of glitter was covering my body too. Due to the cloudiness of the water, I didn’t really notice it in the tub so it was nice to see it after.
In conclusion, I’m very impressed with this Fun Egg and I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t be! They make great easter gifts, especially for children as I know I would have been so excited to use one when I was younger! Stay tuned to see me use the other Fun Eggs!
