I remember when I first saw this bath bomb and after noticing the familiar colour scheme I was hoping and praying for it to be the return of my long lost love, Frozen Bath Bomb. Sadly it wasn’t, and we have Splash instead. Since then, I get this weird feeling of disappointment each time I look at it which honestly isn’t that fair on Splash because it’s actually a fairly lovely bath bomb of its own.
Splash has a reasonably unique design, but I think the scent far surpasses the appearance in how interesting this product is. Splash contains Lime and Neroli at the forefront of its aroma so it offers an uplifting and fresh smell perfect to lift your mood. The Neroli adds a certain element of ‘greenery’ alongside Elemi Oil which is described as spicy and citrusy and is said to instil a feeling of peace. Although it seems like an abundance of citrus, I wouldn’t say Splash is that zesty or sharp in smell. Lush have decided to add Tonka Absolute to the fragrance which I feel rounds the scent off with it’s sweet, subtle presence. All in all, its a fairly unique and bright fragrance which I find quite meditative and soothing.
In the water, Splash is a pure fizzer and fizzes away turning the water into a translucent aquamarine colour like that of a swimming pool. There’s no bath art, just little whisps of white fizzing out into the blue.
I found the scent remained quite strongly even when the bath bomb had fully dissolved, which was nice and really relaxed me as I was soaking. It was still lingering on my skin once I was out and I could definitely smell it wafting off my arms a good few hours later which really helped me take it easy during my evening. Splash also left my skin feeling gorgeously soft.
Overall, I’d describe this bath bomb as being really nice, but nothing special. I’m glad I’ve tried it but I can’t say I’d ever be desperate to try it again. Perhaps if it created patterns on top of the water, I’d have enjoyed it more but for now it’s nothing to write home about.
If you’re still wanting to get your hands on Splash you better hurry! Sadly it’s being discontinued along with quite a lot of the other 30th Anniversary bath bombs very soon.
