First things first, apologies for the awful photo quality, I didn’t have my camera to hand when I took these! From my haul a few weeks ago, the Lush Northern Lights bath bomb was the one that I was most looking forward to! I saw a demo of it in store and fell in love with the colours it made. This is based on the idea of a firework and fizzes like one too!
The main scents in this particular bath bomb are Ylang Ylang Oil and Jasmine Absolute and they smell absolutely divine. When you put Northern Lights in the bath, it fizzes purple continuously with a splodge of blue one end and yellow on the other. It leaves a creamy, frothy layer of white too but once you’re in the bath, it all muddles into one.
I could have sworn the shop assistant I spoke to said that it also contained popping candy but I didn’t notice any. Each end fizzed whilst the middle dissolved slowly and lasted just over five minutes. There’s nothing more annoying than a bath bomb that has gone by the time you get in the bath!
I’ve never really tried anything that smells like this before but really like it. I normally go for a sweeter or spiced scent over flowery. The fragrance lasts all day long and is as good as any perfume but it is quite subtle. It left my skin feeling soft and supple and luckily, no shimmer! I do love a glittery bath but they are a pain to wash off!
I’ve tried a few of the items I bought but the Lush Northern Lights bath bomb has to be one of my new favourites. It’s not something I would usually go for but the pretty colours tempted me too much and I gave in! Have you ever tried any bath bombs from this Lush range? The colours didn’t look quite as good but I might try them anyway and for £3.50, why not?!
