Easter’s here and that means yet more limited edition bath bombs from Lush. Who knew you could bathe in so many symbols of this time of year? A lot of people have their favourite bath bombs and like to stick with them, which is why I’m reviewing as many of these limited release items as I can. I like to see if any of them are worth stocking up on when they go on sale after their relevant holiday. Today, we’re reviewing The Lamb Lush bath bomb.
Because lambs are… the third most Easter-y animal.
So, first thing’s first, this thing is huge. As it should be, because it costs double what a normal bath bomb does. It comes in two separate bits though, so it will last you two baths. It’s also pretty cute, and oh my goodness me the smell of this thing is absolutely delicious. Seriously it made me hungry, it is DIVINE.
So far, so Easter adorable.
Then you put it in the water. I wasn’t expecting a great deal of colour from a bath bomb that is 90% white, but it actually made the water a nice light blue tinge. However, that blue tinge was then covered in what can only be likened to that weird foam you get on the water at Blackpool beach. The same colour and consistency, made my bath look like a bit of a health hazard. For the record, Wes disagrees with me and says the sea foam “isn’t that bad”.
The bath bomb fizzed for quite a long time, but it was possibly the most unsatisfying fizz ever. It barely made a noise, the bath bomb didn’t really move and instead just unleashed an off-white sea scum.
Then, to make matters worse, I stood in the bath and right onto one of the lamb’s little eyes, which had not dissolved at all and just come away from the head and sunk to the bottom of the bath. I fished out both eyes and a wave of guilt for the fallen lamb consumed me. For about twenty seconds.
Once I got over that, however, and mixed in the sea foam, the bath smelled marvellous and the colour was a nice baby blue. I found that the bath bomb was a really effective moisturiser and my skin felt super soft afterwards. Sadly, the wonderful smell of the bath bomb did not translate into a dreamily-fragranced Amy once I’d got out of the water.
That’s a real shame, because the smell of this bath bomb (and its cute face, I guess) is the real standout for what is otherwise quite an ordinary product. The Lamb Lush bath bomb is a cute little addition for Spring and there are several other characters that you can purchase (I picked the lamb because it smelled the nicest), but it would not make my list of regular purchases if it were to become a permanent item on the Lush inventory.
With all that being said, it would make a lovely novelty gift this Easter. Especially for someone who is trying to avoid chocolate, this would be a very welcome (and equally yummy smelling) alternative.
