It’s Easter time at Lush and customers are queuing out the doors to get their hands on this year’s collection of Springtime inspired goodies. Walking into a Lush store is always a delight to the senses. I think it’s the big kid in me that makes me want to poke wobbling shower jellies, stick my nose into face masks to get a good whiff and witness exploding bath bombs up close; thankfully in Lush I get to do all these things without a member of staff escorting me out the building. I picked up a few things during my brief visit; my favourite remedy for breakouts, the Cupcake face mask, a couple of bath melts that were cunningly disguised as a bunch of carrots (review coming soon) and the cutest of all the cuties – the Hoppity Poppity bunny bath bomb (£2.50).
This adorable little fella contains a combination of lavender, violet and lime with a sprinkling of popping candy to add some fizz to your bath time. The scent is primarily of violet but it also has slightly grassy and earthy undertones which are very delicate and gentle, not too overpowering. In my bath tub the bath bomb quickly fizzed away creating a pale pink cloud but this faded away quite soon after. Regular readers will know that I’m a huge Lush fan, in my local branch the staff are always lovely and accommodating without being too pushy or overbearing, the store’s philosophy towards cruelty free beauty is inspiring and the vast majority of my favourite skincare and bath time treats come from it’s very shelves – that’s why it pains me to say that I found this product a bit underwhelming.
I expect my bath bombs to fizz, not fizz out into nothing. After the initial explosion, half way through my bath I actually forgot that I had put anything in it! Compared to Big Blue, Sex Bomb or Think Pink this adorable bath bomb, and it kills me to write this, is pretty lack luster. But I will not write off Lush’s Easter collection quite just yet, I’ll be returning to Lush next week, what’s on my shopping list? I have my eyes on a Golden Egg, Pot O’ Gold and a giant carrot – only in Lush could my shopping list sound this egg-cellent…. #sorrynotsorry.
What do you think about this Hoppity Poppity bath time treat? Have you tried any of the other products in the Lush Easter collection? What are some of your favourite Lush products?
