Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb - Lush Review

Like words, flowers represent many meaning and emotions. They are symbols, they are feelings and they are art. The same could be said for Lush. When looking at a Lush product, you can clearly see a lot of attention and heart goes into the smallest details, from the name, the appearance and the story they tell. This is how you know when something goes past being a simple item to an artistic piece for all the senses.

The Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb, is designed in the image of the flower it is named after. This flower represents different things in different cultures such as purity, beauty and resurrection, it is a spiritual symbol in the Hindu and Buddhist religion. With a white dome base, purple petals and a yellow centre, this is one of the most unique bath bombs I have seen from Lush and what makes it even more desirable is the fact it is only available at Lush Oxford Street. 

The fragrance is sweet with a delicate floral scent, it is created with a blend of Neroli Oil
(scientifically proven to make you feel content and cheerful), Jasmine Absolute (used to treat sensitive skin and stress related conditions) and Tonka Absolute (used to treat joint problems and for its sweet fragrance).

Like the flower itself, this bath bomb looks stunning in the water. It begins to froth and blossom as the colours grow and spread across the tub. The Sacred Lotus dances and spirals around, as the petals break away to join in this graceful waltz. After a few minutes this beautiful performance settles into a slumber, the water is left a sparkly, light purple with little spots of colourful foam resting in their stupor, ready to take you into this blissful retreat with them.

Sinking into this bath gives you the feeling of
drifting away, leaving any murky worries at the bottom of the pond and emerging bright and renewed. My skin was left feeling moisturised, my mind blissful and relaxed and the scent clung to me.

Lush have done wonders representing this charming flower, the appearance is beautiful, the way it moves in water is like a elegant dance and the scent is subtle. The feelings it gives you also capture the symbolism we are told the flower represents, the purity is represented in its subtleness and the relaxing qualities gives you the feeling of being reborn, relaxed, fresh and stronger.

At first sight I loved this bath bomb, but thought I was be very disappointed with the subtle smell. How ever once trying it in the bath, I could finally experience its beauty and I am so glad I gave it a chance. I am sad I only picked up the one, but seeing such a fragile design I did fear for getting it home safely. On my next visit I will be sure to take a box so I can pick up some more.

Thank you for reading my post about one of the many fabulous items at Lush Oxford Street. I really love the fact that not only is this store so big and full of magic but there are also products specially made just for your visit there. I highly recommend trying the Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb if you get a chance, there are so many surprises to it, you will not be disappointed.
