Big Blue Bath Bomb - Lush Review


The Big Blue Bath Bomb has been in my collection for quite some time now. It was while organising my Lush basket I found myself a little saddened when I found that it had broken, but I decided to use this opportunity to try it out and make a little Bath Cocktail to cheer myself up.

I adore the sea, I find the sound, smell and the feel of it brushing against me very calming. One thing that breaks the mood for me however is feeling bits, such as seaweed grab at me. This is what had put me off trying this bath bomb for so long. All of the ingredients sound like a luxurious get away, but the fact its main ingredient is seaweed, that settles to the bottom of the bath, reminded me of parts of a get-away I do not enjoy.

The Big Blue Bath Bomb in appearance looks exactly how the name suggests. A big sea blue and white bath bomb. It has Lush embossed on top of it, with Seaweed encased and sometimes peaking through.

The fragrance is fresh and revitalising, like diving into the ocean on a hot summers day. Made from a blend of: detoxifying Arame Seaweed, gentle exfoliating Fine Sea Salt, uplifting Lemon Oil and balancing Lavender Oil.
As soon as the Big Blue plunges into the water, it instantly starts to fizz. It works fast, shooting out seaweed as it dives. The seaweed settles to the bottom of the tub, the water is transformed to a vivid blue and the fragrance intoxicates the whole room.

I added the bath bomb to my tub with the Floating Island Bath Melt and let myself bask in the calm. With this bath selection I am presented with the image of travelling across the beautiful big blue ocean. Once arriving on my isolated Island, I treat myself to cheeky cocktails and slammers. My skin felt renewed and moisturised and my mind was made to feel revitalised and relaxed. The scent clung and lasted into the next day, carrying with it the sense of freshness thats helps to kick start a new day.

I am so glad I tried this bath bomb, it was a refreshing bathing experience that helped me unwind. I recommend this product when you are tired and in need of an escape. If like me you are worried about the seaweed, it was soft and once settling to the bottom of the bath it wasn't the nuisance I thought it would be. This meant I could really relax and enjoy all of the benefits of the ingredients.

So why not grab yourself this little holiday and bring the sea to your bath tube. You could even add to the luxury by following my little cocktail mix. You can purchase these from your local lush store or on the Lush Website.
