When I first heard the name of this Christmas bath bomb, I expected it to be silver and designed to look like those mirrored disco balls, so when I first saw the black design I was a tad confused. However I soon realised that this exclusive is actually meant to look like one of those spinning disco balls with all the coloured circular lights!
Black bath bombs are on trend at the moment, I guess with DIY ones going viral because everyone loved how awesomely mysterious and magical they look, it was only a matter of time until Lush jumped on the hype with the likes of Secret Arts Jelly Bomb and now The World’s Smallest Disco.
Once you place this bath bomb in the tub, you’ll be amazed at the waves of jet black that appear, looking like smoke filling a room as it darkens the water. Dotted throughout the darkness were the coloured discs that feature on the bath bomb, which having floated away from the main ballistic, sent out vibrant streams of their own colours, creating beautiful patterns atop the water. The sheer contrast between the colours and the black made for really vibrant bath art.
Once the bath bomb had fully dissolved, you’re left with deep black waters that shimmer with a large amount of silver sparkles. I really love it when the colour of a bath is opaque enough so that you can’t see your body beneath it and this was no exception.
I found the scent had remarkable staying power throughout my bath filling my senses with uplifting citrus aromas. The World’s Smallest Disco contains Lime, Grapefruit and Cognac Oils making up the scent. The zesty and tangy notes of the two citrus fruits are what hits you first, until you notice the warming notes beneath it of the Cognac. Lush use Cognac Oil in a lot of their Christmas products due to often being drunk in winter tipples and it having a somewhat festive aroma.
I know most of you are thinking that the colour of this product might stain your bath or even your skin, but believe me it doesn’t. The most mine did was leave a little colour around my tub and some glitter at the bottom but that’s nothing a wipe around and a rinse with the shower wouldn’t sort. There wasn’t that much on my skin either!
Although being one of the Christmas products that excited me the least this year, I was pleasantly surprised with this one and I loved the pretty artwork it created. Furthermore it left my skin feeling wonderfully clean and fresh scented so I’d definitely say I’m glad I could get one before stocks ran out, I hope you did too!
