This bath bomb is part of Lush’s new vanilla-scented collection and I got it for free with a $50 purchase. I’m not huge on bath bombs…if I’m taking a bath I’d prefer it to have bubbles in it and I don’t usually like the fact that bath bombs are only one use. The only bath bomb I LOVE is Butterball because of the way it makes my skin feel after using it. But since I got this one for free, I thought I’d give it a try. The initial smell of it before putting it in the bath was amazing. I love the smell of vanilla…but not a really over-powering vanilla smell, and this seemed to balance out perfectly with that. I also love the cute little vanilla stick (I’m actually not sure what it is) sticking out on the top. =) After putting it in the bath, the most noticable thing was the color of the water. I think its supposed to turn your water bright yellow, but the tiles in my bathroom are blue, so the water ended up being this really cool shade of neon green. This was fine with me, since yellow seems to be an unpleasent color for bath water (in my opinion) haha. The smell at first was really delicious, but I noticed it wasn’t as strong as I had hoped. I had to kind of think about smelling the scent first and then I would smell it…it really didn’t just hit me. I also found that the scent didn’t really stick to my skin for very long either. It could be that I was just having a bad nose/smelling day though haha. All in all, I love the bath bombs for their moisterizing effects or for the color they turn the water, but not nessesarily for the scent cause I find that (at least in the bath bombs I’ve tried) it doesn’t seem to linger.
