As the days get colder and the evenings get darker, we’re coming in to the best time of year for long and luxurious baths! With this in mind, I’ve been making regular trips to Lush to stock up for all the cosy nights in that lie ahead!
Lush have such a huge mix of products that I always try to get something new every time I’m there. One of my most recent purchases was the Sakura bath bomb. White and powdery with a vibrant pink centre; I instantly liked the look of it. Designed to calm and rejuvenate; I also liked the sound of it. Made with orange flower absolute, jasmine absolute and lemon oil; I was smitten with its sweet floral scent. I had to have it!
Sadly, first impressions of the bath bomb in action weren’t as great. As always, I dropped it in to warm running water and it immediately started to fizz and dissolve. It then turned the water a cloudy sort of colour…and that was about it. I watched and waited but nothing else happened. I have to say I was a bit disappointed! This is a bath bomb inspired by cherry blossoms, I was expecting all sorts of beautiful pink colours! It was just a bit plain and dull instead.
On the plus side, it does smell pretty incredible. It’s a refreshing and relaxing fragrance that will make you feel like you’re in a spa! It also leaves your skin feeling silky soft and pampered. If you like something pure and simple; this might suit you.
In this case, however, I prefer a little something more. For me, Sakura was just slightly underwhelming. I don’t need lots of fanfare with every bath bomb (although glitter and secret notes never hurt!) but I would like it to be unique and interesting. Coming in somewhere around the €4.50 mark, this isn’t the cheapest bath bomb in Lush either. It wouldn’t be one I’d buy again. It just didn’t impress me enough and I think there are so many better ones in-store!
