We are turning into quite the "Lushie" household these days. The husband is a fan, I am, and now the kids are falling on the bandwagon. My eldest child (and softball superstar) had a kick-ass day, and her reward for being such a good and gracious winner was a trip to the local Lush store. This sumptuous bomb was one of her picks.
This is a very feminine scented bath bomb. Moreso than I would personally choose for myself, but apparently it is just what any nine year old girl is looking for when it comes to smelly things. It is ultra floral and soft on top as I feel it is quite heavy on the ylang ylang and jasmine. I think what keeps it from being cloying is the clary sage scent that runs through it. It made the whole house smell nice, and not even the husband complained about the girly scent.
I admit, as a mom, the name did give me pause. But its a name, nothing more. My kid kinda tittered/rolled her eyes at it...so I must be doing something right. Honestly, I think she chose it because of the soap rose in the top. It really is a pretty bath bomb though.
Here is a screencap from the website. I forgot to get a picture of it in my hand
(or next to a banana) for scale, but it is slightly bigger than a tennis ball, but smaller than a softball. Seven dollars seems like a lot for a single-use product, but I think that the whole experience of the store makes it ok. I definitely would not be buying something like this for daily use, but a special treat is a whole 'nother beastie.
We filled up the tub (after clearing out the ponies and dinosaurs that usually live there) and dropped the bomb in. Little Miss Sports-star was gracious enough to let me snap a few pictures of the fizzy before banishing me from the room. She did tell me that is took a long time to dissolve compared to her Humpty Dumpty Easter gift, and that the soapy rose was the last to go. I can say that her skin felt soft and she smelled wonderful after her bath. She has pretty sensitive skin, and she didn't report any itching afterwards. When she was very small, I was always scared to use bubble baths and soaks because she would be red and blotchy afterwards.
Clean-up was pretty standard. There was a ring of oil, butter, colorant and dirt around the rim of the tub. A little Scrubbing Bubbles and a wash cloth took care of most of it. In a decidedly non-beauty-related post, I may share my recipe for tub scrub...it is definitely the thing for post-bomb-residue.
Have you tried this bomb? Or is there another that we should look for on our next trip? Let me know down below, and I'll keep my eyes peeled!
