The Lush Christmas range is absolutely HUGE this year! I had to split it over four days of Blogmas last year so I’ve done something similar this year!
As part of the range they have a new type of bath bomb called a “Bomb Bomb” Bath Bomb. They are named this way because they actually comprise of two bath bombs in one and so promise you double the bath time fun!
You can get the Bomb Bomb Bath Bombs in Snowman, Santa and Princess versions!
As I always do with the Christmas range, I ordered one of each to try them out. I just admit I did feel a bit stung by the £9.99 price tag for each Bomb Bomb but didn’t think much more of it, seeing as you are getting two bath bombs in one.
The Santa Bomb Bomb was the first one I used, I was looking forward to using him as I expected him to be quite a spicy, festive scented bath bomb. I was really surprised when I looked at the list of ingredients and saw that it contained bergamot oil, vanilla absolute and cocoa absolute! The website says it is a strawberries and cream type fragrance, but I really didn’t detect this scent. In fact, despite the fact there were two bath bombs in one, I found the scent to be extremely faint and almost non-existent! I’m wondering if anyone else found this?
The second thing I was rather disappointed about was that, again, despite the fact that there were two bath bombs in the water, I didn’t find the water to be particularly moisturising…
Not a good start with this new product I’m afraid! I keep thinking I could have bought nearly three other bath bombs from the Christmas range in exchange for this one…
I had higher hopes for the Snowman Bomb Bomb because it had a much stronger scent than the other two. Probably not very surprising, but Snowman Bomb Bomb has a refreshing minty scent due to its spearmint oil ingredient.
I enjoyed using the Snowman Bomb Bomb far more than the Santa Bomb Bomb and I’m not actually a huge fan of minty scents.
Although I quite enjoyed using it, would I use Snowman Bomb Bomb again? Due to the £9.99 price tag, I doubt it very much I am afraid! I really just don’t think the product is worth the price tag, especially in view of the fact that last year Lush was selling Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bombs for £12 each – and they were absolutely incredible!
The third and final Bomb Bomb of the collection is the Princess Bomb Bomb. Please don’t be put off by my pictures – the Princess Bomb Bomb doesn’t normally look like this but mine was absolutely battered when it arrived in the post! Her face was all crumbled and her little crown had fallen off!
Princess Bomb Bomb is very different from the other two scent wise as it contains ylang ylang oil for sweetness, cedar wood oil which is toning and balancing, benzoin resinoid which is an anti inflammatory, and bergamot oil which is really uplifting.
Although I found the Princess scent to be stronger than Santa, I was still really disappointed at how weak all the scents were considering the size and price of the Bomb Bombs.
Again I also couldn’t understand how such big Bath Bombs weren’t making the bath water particularly moisturising and weren’t leaving my skin anywhere near as soft as some of the other bath bombs from both the Christmas and regular ranges.
I’m pleased I tried them as I always look forward to trying new products from Lush, particularly the Christmas range, but I’m afraid I won’t be purchasing any more of the Christmas Bomb Bomb Bath Bombs! Such a shame….I don’t think we have seen the last of this design though!
