REVIEW | Lush Blackberry Bath Bomb








It has been a while since I last posted a review on a bath bomb and let's just say it was well over due. Moving houses can be a stressful time and the amount hubby and I did in a matter of two weeks was remarkable. Seeing as our baby is due next month ment that we had to do things at a more faster pace. I finally got to fit in some me time and decided to take out a bath bomb from my packed boxes and was I pleased to see that nothing was broken. Rambles apart, I wanted a Lush bath for so long and so I turned to this - Blackberry bath bomb.

Product Description:
As soon as you drop this into your bath, tension is banished as the bergamot and frankincense oils are released. Bergamot is used in aromatherapy for anxiety, depression and nervous tension, and is both relaxing and uplifting as well as antibacterial. You’ll soon feel calmed as frankincense oil helps slow down breathing and induces a feeling of wellbeing.

Though it seems like an ordinary bath bomb there is so much more to this, which I will explain further on in this review. This bath bomb fitted in well with how I was currently feeling. Exhaustion and the unnecessary thinking that you end up doing needed to be banished and this bath bomb really gave me that pick me up that I needed.
When you throw this into your bath water expect alot of fast fizzing, this didn't last that long but nevertheless it was a sight to see.
I could instantly smell the lovely essential oils (Bergamot and Frankincense) and it truly made my mind drift away. My mind and body were both at ease. The scent was absolutely delish! It smelt exactly like blackberries and it wasn't overpowering because that can be the worst thing ever! To have alot of scent and it could of even smelt artificial but rest assured there was just the right amount of scent that smelt natural.
I simply adored watching the bath water turn into this beautiful purple colour and laying in this purple coloured water sure felt a bit bizarre since this was my first ever try at using a blackberry bath bomb.
Once the bath bomb had fizzed away I could see a small piece of paper emerging and floating up to the top of the bath water, I absolutely loved this little novelty idea, the note said 'Boom Boom' which I thought was genius since it gives the bath bomb a real bomb like feeling if that makes any sense. After having a good ol' soak, my skin was left feeling very soft and actually moisturised thanks to the lovely essential oils. I truly didn't feel the need to moisturise as much and my skin also had a subtle scent of blackberries, Win! But I came across some stain-age, due to the bath bomb being such an incredible colour, it left some stains which ideally wasn't great because it ment a bit of elbow grease after a relaxing bath. The stains came off easily but in reality, I'm sure no one would want to clean up as much after using a bath bomb.
I truly do love this bath bomb but I don't see myself repurchasing it any time soon, I will however look out for other alternatives if not then I will just buy some other bath bombs from Lush which I have still not tried out yet.
