I am SO excited to be writing this review! The Beatles are by far my favourite band of all time and I was so happy when Lush decided to bring out a Beatles-themed bath bomb! I first caught a glimpse of this bath bomb on Lush’s instagram. It was released at the 2017 Lush Summit in London. I live about 6 hours from London and I definitely couldn’t afford the train fare so I wasn’t able to make it down. This was the product from the Summit that I loved the most and I was so so SO happy when Lush decided to make it an official main line item!
Yellow Submarine is utterly breathtaking, from it’s design to it’s scent. It’s obviously named after the well-known Beatles song (and album) “Yellow Submarine”, which is a personal favourite of mine! It’s scent very much captures a tropical scene, with beautiful Brazilian Orange Oil, which gives your skin a boost of refreshment. It doesn’t specifically say this in the ingredients, but I did hint a slight scent of Coconut as well, which definitely added to the tropical vibes. It also contains Lemongrass oil, which is a fab natural antiseptic.
It’s made of up of two main colours: vibrant yellow and pink, which turn your bath water a gorgeous peach colour, with glints of the “Fandango” lustre (don’t worry, the lustre is quite minimal for people who prefer less glittery baths).
It’s a slow fizzer, so you can enjoy it’s beautiful swirls of pink and yellow in the water for the duration of your bath. I personally prefer faster fizzing bombs, but I can understand why people enjoy long-lasting bombs.
Yellow Submarine is a super moisturising bath bomb and it left my skin feeling silky smooth. The lustre is quite subtle, so I didn’t really have any that stayed on my skin (no problems with bath staining either).
Overall, this is a fabulous bath bomb and I’m definitely going to be stocking up! And for only £3.95, this bath bomb has such great value for money!
Hope you enjoyed this review and watch out for brand new reviews on some of the latest Lush releases!
