Marshmallow World Bath Bomb was one of twelve bath bombs, dubbed ‘community favourites’ released in the UK in December and was arguably one of the most hyped over. The swirly design is absolutely beautiful, like a pink version of Intergalactic it sports the American Cream scent, which has definitely seen a rise in popularity recently.
The American Cream scent is a sweet and powdery scent that’s meant to mimic the aroma coming from a plate of fresh strawberries and cream. To strongly reproduce that fragrance, Lush have enlisted the help from Vanilla, Lavender Oil, Clary Sage Oil and Benzoin Resinoid. Theres definitely subtle floral notes in the background but it’s mainly the familiar Vanilla smell that’s at the forefront, with the sweet balsamic scent of the Benzoin Resinoid. With Granulated and Icing Sugar too, it’s like walking into a sweet shop, filled with sugary powdered confectionary and really indulges you with a comforting feeling.
Once you drop the bath bomb in the tub, Marshmallow World foams and fizzes spectacularly as it shoots layers of pink into the water. Little pools of yellow and white foam dance around until it’s finally dissolved into a light pink colour, with silky white layers on top. The scent is super strong as it’s released into the air whilst it’s fizzing away.
I noticed that the water felt somewhat richer than usual and wasn’t until I checked the ingredients list that I realised why. The bath bomb feels really foamy and luxurious thanks to a combination of Cornflour, Potato Starch and Sodium Alginate. Added Marshmallow Powder has a soothing effect on the skin also!
Once I was out, I felt incredibly soft and content. I could still smell the sweet perfume on my skin after, which lasted for a long while.
I really enjoyed my time with Marshmallow World and would love to use it again. I think it would make an excellent addition to stores and I’m sure would prove to be immensely popular. Take note Lush!
