No seriously, I mean literally Lush!

synonyms:

luxuriant, rich, abundant, superabundant, profuse, exuberant, riotous, prolific, teeming, flourishing, thriving, vigorous

Walking down Princes Street I was drawn to the smell of baby powder, flowers, fruit and the sight of chalkboard signs with bold white swishy writing printed all over them. This of course led me to the bath and beauty shop Lush.
As you go through the doors you are welcomed by friendly and eccentric people who too all have a passion for beautifully scented products… It’s almost like a club. You are also greeted when entering the shop by that iconic Lush smell… the one everybody knows.
There are so many beautiful products which you can take your time smelling, touching and testing, piling them into your brown paper bag or basket which of course makes the shopping experience 100 X better!!

Once in the shop I spent a good solid 10 minutes at the bath bomb counter deciding which bath bomb I’d like to treat myself too.  There is such a wide and varied choice and all are so different, eventually I had to pick one. After many minutes of deliberation I picked “Yoga Bomb”. In my opinion it smells like sherbet, melon and bananas (I’m really selling this aren’t I?) However, Lush say it has ingredients and scents in it such as Oil banum and Ho wood oil.

Not only do you feel special about having your new bath bomb with your Lush description sticker you really feel like you have a bag of loveliness!
The bath bomb is bright orange in colour with a green line around the middle giving you a sneak peek of what might happen when this bath bomb is unleashed into a warm, cosy bath. Lush bath bombs make bath time even more exciting and I genuinely was counting down the hours till I could try it out!
Once put into a toasty bath, the bath bomb swirls and fizzes and kind of reminds me of fireworks popping and unleashing in the sky into all different colours. At first the bath bomb appears orange turning your bath the brightest orange you have ever seen. But! The bath bomb then pops and outcomes gold glitter, green, purple and pink colouring turning your normal bathroom bathtub into a magical, sparkly princess bath.
The bomb leaves your skin feeling super soft and hydrated and you really do feel great when you come out of the bath! This particular bath bomb is designed to put you into a tranquil state of mind. unwind you and make you feel calm (as if you have been doing yoga) and it really does do this!
To round off….

Although relatively expensive in price (£3.95 for yoga bomb) I feel the products are worth it!

Therefore, all in all..

I would definitely recommend this bath bomb to de-stress, re -wind or just to chill in before bedtime and of course I would also recommend any of the other Lush bath bombs or products!

Happy Bathing! X

Here is a little DIY bath bomb you can make yourselves at home!

You will need :

  • ½ cup of powdered citric acid
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • ¾ cup of cornstarch
  • Food colouring
  • Essential oils.

Combine all dry ingredients first (you may need to add some water to soften the mixture). Leave the fun stuff till last this being the colouring and essences (I’ve found rose and orange oil work well!) Roll mixture into desired shape and put into a mould to set / dry overnight. Once set, run yourself a warm, cosy bath and unleash your bath bomb!
