When it comes to LUSH products I’ll be honest and say that in the past it had been a brand that I had not paid that much attention to. Having said that in the last six months my shopping habits have changed somewhat and I’ve found myself visiting the store on a regular basis.
Big Blue here was actually within a gift set that I had last Christmas so it has taken me pretty much almost one year to finally get around to reviewing it. Big Blue was one that I had a feeling I would like as in the past I’ve alluded to the fact that I like my water to turn blue as opposed to an orange/red so I knew that I’d be off to a good start with this. Of course the first striking thing about this bath bomb is the fact that there are little pieces of seaweed inside (you can see them protruding out the seal of the bath bomb in the image above).
Initially I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as I’d never had used a bath bomb before that had anything inside, so this was rather a new experience for me. Upon use this fizzed as per normal and released A LOT of seaweed, far more than I anticipated and if I’m honest far more than I was comfortable with. Whilst I adored the colour of the water and the scent of the product itself there was just too much seaweed for me, I found myself wanting to sieve some of it out of my bath; quite the opposite to a relaxing bath time I must admit. If you’re interested in seeing what I mean there was a mini video of this on my instagram which shows you the bath bomb in action.
Having said that whilst I found the amount overwhelming I did notice just how moisturised my skin was afterwards, this was an incredibly moisturising bath and it left my skin feeling really good. Moving onto the scent this was really refreshing and calming for me, I can’t say that I was able to pin point individual scents but after looking it up there are notes of lavender and lemon included.
Once my bath was over I did decide to remove a lot of the seaweed myself as I dreaded the thought of it going down the bath plug. Overall whilst there were positives regarding this bath bomb there was just simply too much seaweed for me. I’m quite quickly coming to the conclusion that the LUSH bubble bars are the best way to go for my personal preference.
