Bath, Bath Bombs

Bunny Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb

Over last Christmas, we were introduced to three limited edition products called ‘bomb bombs’. These were two-in-one character bath bombs that consisted of a head and a body; we had a Snowman, a Princess and a Santa Claus. For Easter we were introduced to two new members of the bomb bomb family, a Lamb and a Bunny.

Bunny Bomb Bomb is a deep pink coloured bath bomb with a hefty body and a smallish head. It shares it’s scent with the popular Honey I Washed The Kids fragrance, which is a creamy and warming scent reminiscent of butterscotch and honey. Uplifting and sunny scented Bergamot is what makes up a big portion of the scent and its sweet oil is said to smell like ‘sunshine in a bottle’. Brazilian Orange elevates that fruity note and adds a juiciness and although not usually appearing in HIWTK scented products, it also includes Ho Wood Oil. Ho Wood is floral and woody with sweet citrus undertones, so I imagine Lush included it in this product to strengthen the familliar fragrance. If you’ve not come across the HIWTK scent before then you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s generically citrusy and zesty, but that’s far from the buttery caramel truth.

Although you can use each piece of the bath bomb across separate baths, I opted to put the whole thing in for the full effect. The fizzing began immediately after lowering Bunny Bomb Bomb into the bath, dispersing clouds of pink into the water. It’s a fairly fast fizzer so before long, it had disappeared completely resulting in gorgeous pastel pink bathwater. The comforting scent was lifted into the room and lingered for a good while throughout my bath.

I completely forgot that this limited edition was actually full of Popping Candy so I was surprised to hear it crackle under the water’s surface. There’s actually a really impressive amount and the popping lasted a good while.

Once I was out my skin felt remarkably soft and refreshed, not to mention it was exuding the heavenly scent for hours after my bath. I actually find this to be one of the strongest HIWTK scented products so if you’re a fan of that scent family then be sure to give it a try!

With Easter long gone, the range is slowly disappearing from stores so make sure you grab what you want before it goes. You never know what Lush might not bring back next year!

Bath, Bath Melts & Oils

Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt

Arguably one of Lush’s most glittery products ever. Let me tell you that Lush staff around the world fear the return of Golden Egg at Easter time because of the extreme amount of golden glitter that will inevitably cover them when they restock them, touch them or even move too closely to them. I’m serious.

First coming out in 2014’s Easter range, it’s since come back each year.

Golden Egg is half bath bomb, and half melt. The outer layer is a bath melt, and the inner section is a bath bomb.

It has the same sent as the very popular Honey I Washed The Kids soap, and like the soap, this product is also incredibly moisturising due to the high content of Cocoa Butter surrounding the ‘bomb’ part. unlike

Once placed in the water, aside from the layer of golden lustre escaping the product into the water, Golden Egg doesn’t do much for a while. The cocoa butter shell is really thick, so it takes a rather long time to melt, slowly giving off pale yellow streams into the water. As it continues to shrink, the bath bomb centre starts to fizz and the product starts spreading creamy white foam throughout the yellow.

Cocoa Butter isn’t the only moisturising ingredient in this product, it also features nourishing Almond Oil and protective Olive Oil to deeply penetrate and condition the skin.

At the end of the show you’re left with a golden yellow bath that shimmers with the lustre, although Golden Egg looks as though it has a massive glitter content, it doesn’t actually seem much more than the likes of Intergalactic and other sparkly bombs, and because of the high oil presence, the glitter doesn’t really stick to you too much either.

As already mentioned, this bath bomb melt features the Honey I Washed The Kids scent which is a delicious, uplifting toffee scent reminding me of childhood fudgy sweets, sticky caramel and is heavenly. It really leaves your skin smelling delightful long after your bath.

My skin always feels super soft and well moisturised after a bath with one of these Easter exclusives, I reckon it’ll be a very sad day if Lush ever decide to discontinue this product because it’s such a staple of the Easter range.

If you like Golden Egg that much then keep telling Lush to bring it back each year on social media, believe me, they do listen!
