I love this bath bomb, it smells so nice, and I love what it does to the bath water
Please scroll down to the very bottom for the short version of this review. I tend to drag these on sometimes :) Happy readings!
So ... I'm not much of a bath person ... in fact ... I literally cannot tell you how many years have passed since my last bath ... until today that is. A friend of mine "dragged" me to one of the smelliest stores in the city ... it's name ... Lush. Although the smell can be overwhelming at times, it's really not that bad once you're inside! Just like any other product line, some of their products smell icky ... but others ... absolutely lovely! There ... I used the word lovely ... I told myself I had to use it at least once in this review!
Today's item ... The Blackberry Bath Bomb! I have to admit I was sceptical at best when I was told how "fabulous" these bath bombs are. The price alone woulnd't have convince me. At 5.95 for 180g of bath bombiness it's not the cheapest "one time use" item BUT the smell was enough to reel me in (it doesn't actually smell of blackberries ... at least I don't think it does)... well that and it was free for me that day!... HA! yay free stuff! oh! and it's purple!!
I took my free sample home and left it under the bathroom sink for a couple of weeks ... who am I kidding ... it's been there for a couple of months now. I have to admit, the bathroom cupboard smelled uber nice!! Today I decided was the day. I grabbed a book and waited (impatiently) for the tub to fill up. Once in the tub I took the bath bomb and dropped it in. It started fizzy like mad! It was actually quite entertaining! Within seconds the water turned this awesome dark purple colour and the smell filled the bathroom. The oils from this thing cover you instantly. Definately leaves the skin nice and soft!
I've read in some reviews that this particular bath bomb leaves a lot of residue behind, leaving the bathtub purple. I did not find this to be the case. I was so ready to have to scrub the tub that I was actually a bit disappointed afterwards lol.
Anyway ... enough rambling ... the product does what it's supposed to do. It's relaxing, smells nice and leaves your skin feeling great!
If I took baths regularly, I think the price would scare me off ... but since I don't plan on taking them all that often, I can definately see myself getting this one again!
