MOTHER EARTH BATH BOMB | MOTHER’S DAY 2017

Hi guys! Sorry it’s been a while since my last Lush review! Things have been a bit crazy in my life and I just haven’t got round to having baths as frequently (I know, how horrible). Anyway, here is the final review in my Mother’s Day 2017 series and I thought I’d leave the undoubtedly best to last! Mother Earth!

This was my first XL bath bomb (sadly had missed all the others in the kitchen), so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I had no anticipated the sheer size of this product and it really did live up to it’s name. I spent a good 10 minutes just holding it and staring at it. After the initial shock/awe, the first thing that hit me was the smell. A very fresh peppermint. I was a little bit worried, because I thought the Tangerine Oil would be more prominent that the the Peppermint Oil. However, I actually enjoyed the scent! I usually steer away from minty smells (reminds me too much of dental products) but I was pleasantly surprised by this one!

This bath bomb really is gorgeous. It looks exactly like the Earth and it’s everything I had imagined and more! However, the real joy came when I took a bath with this bomb, and found that hidden inside was a vibrant pink core!

When combined with the blue/green hues of the outer shell, it turned the water a gorgeous deep purple. A quick side note: The bath water was so pigmented that it stained my toes, toenails and the blonde ends of my hair. This doesn’t bother me in the slightest, but if it bothers you, I’d steer clear of this bomb.

The patterns this bath bomb created in the water were gorgeous! And they just kept on coming! I’d say this bath bomb took roughly 15 minutes to fully dissolve, which is mighty impressive!

Mother Earth does contain some lustre, so I’d advise washing out the bath as soon as you’re finished, to avoid any unwanted staining (or to avoid being shouted out for making the bath glittery!)

Overall, this is an amazing bath bomb and if they come back in stock on the website, or you see them in the Oxford Street shop (they’re OS exclusive), grab one! They’re on the more pricey side at £7.95 each, but to be honest that’s to be expected for an XL bath bomb.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Water, Siberian Pine Nut Oil, Tangerine Oil, Cypress Oil, Peppermint Oil, Limonene, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Candy Pink Lustre and Frosty Holly Lustre

Hope you enjoyed the review!

Ups-A-Daisy bath bomb | Mother’s Day 2017

Another review of one of the Mother’s Day 2017 products.  This time, it’s the Ups-a-Daisy bath bomb! I was super excited to try this one out, after seeing pictures of it online. It’s super cute, bright and colourful – perfect for Spring.

It’s full of beautiful essential oils, such as Rosewood oil and orange oil. It’s got a very nice, fresh scent to it, which is ideal for Springtime baths! The scent really lifted my spirits on a rainy Spring evening!

This bath bomb looks very colourful and it doesn’t disappoint in the bath! It’s a slow fizzer, so plenty of time to appreciate the gorgeous mix of colours that spiral out of the centre. It turns your bath water a lovely muted orange colour and it’s very soft on the skin. Rosewood oil actually has antiseptic properties, so it’s a very healing bath (or so it feels!). It’s got a little bit of lustre in it, but nothing too crazy, so don’t worry about it staining your bath at all. I barely noticed any glitter once the bath had drained.

A very short and sweet review! As this is part of the Mother’s Day range, it’d recommend picking up one of these bath bombs either for yourself or as a thoughtful gift to your mum!

This bath bomb is only £3.50 (which I think is really good given it’s size), so why not?

Mum bath bomb | Mother’s Day 2017

Hi guys! I’m so excited, because my Mother’s Day purchases arrived a few days ago! I’m super, super excited because I picked up one of the much awaited Mother Earth bath bombs! Stay tuned for the review! I picked up a few other bath bombs, and one was, of course, the Mum bath bomb! I was on quite a tight budget this year, so I pretty excited when I saw this was only £2.95! Definitely a good one if you’re saving all your pennies for the Easter range!

Anyway, on with the review! This bath bomb is super cute and would make a great present for Mother’s Day! However, my mum doesn’t really enjoy bath bombs (at all), so I decided to buy it for myself. It’s quite a small bath bomb (which is to be expected at such a low price), but it still packs a punch! It’s made with Rose oil, so it has a gorgeous floral scent, with some nice citrus-y undertones from the Sicilian lemon and Sweet orange oils.

This is quite a fast-fizzer, so don’t blink! It turns your bath water a beautiful deep pink. I fancied some bubbles in my bath, so I added in a bit of Snow Fairy too. Embedded within the bath bomb is a secret message, which reads “I ❤ Mum”, which I thought was absolutely adorable (and another reason why this would be a A+ present!).

Overall, really nice little bath bomb, nice floral but fresh scent and a price that doesn’t break the bank!
