Lush Big Blue Bath Bomb

Last night I decided to have a bath to help me combat the impending frostbite thanks to the freezing cold weather.  I've been waiting to use this bath bomb since I got it in Belfast before Christmas for £3.10.  I know that sounds expensive for a bath but I probably could have broken it up and got two baths out of it.  I decided to go for broke and use the whole thing in my bath.  I'd read nothing about this before buying it and had been pottering around the Lush shop smelling everything and covering myself with coloured dust in the meantime.

This was love at first sniff, like it usually is in life.  And so it was popped in my basket along with other Christmas goodies and the control freak in me (when it comes to carrying makeup, Joanne is just bad luck and not at all careful) minded it for the entire day so as not to break anything.  This careful guarding of my Big Blue bath bomb meant that I could enjoy it in all it's glory last night.  So here's the Big Blue Ball as I like to call it.


It contains lavender oil to help you relax, lemon oil to help calm your mind, seaweed and sea salt to help soften the skin.  It smells so clean and fresh and I absolutely adore the scent.  It's me all over when it comes to buying bath and shower products.  Now, as I said before, I knew nothing about the bath bomb and didn't bother reading about it before trying it, but I will admit, I had a little moment when I saw my bath filling up with these little black thingys.  I legged it back into my laptop to Google "what are those black things in Lush Big Blue".  Phew, seaweed strands.  Grand.  I could handle that.  Legged it back in to take more photos and dive (step gingerly so as not to go flying on the seaweed) into the most gorgeous coloured bath ever.  Seriously.  Ever.  I mean look at it.  If you squint, you may as well be looking at the Mediterranean... Squint harder.... There you go...


I slapped a face mask and hair mask on and thoroughly enjoyed my big blue bath.  I squeezed my eyes shut and pretended I was on the beach in Spain, ignoring the goosepimples on my arms.  The only down side to this bath bomb is the clean up afterwards.  There was a lot of seaweed left in the bath when the water had drained, so it was annoying to have to clean it up, but it was worth it.  I love this blue ball and will repurchase again and again.

    i'm a newbie when it comes to lush too, i've only tried the butterball(aaahmaaazing left my skin so utterly soft) and twilight, which smelt so nice i had to convince myself to use it instead of sniffling it every now and then... i still have a gingerbread set i picked up in the sale but i'm looking forward to trying 'sex bomb' 'vanilla fountain' and now i can also add 'big blue' to the list :D

  5. It really does make you feel like you're on holidays (if you turn up the heat on your bathroom)! I'm with you on the bath-cleaning part afterwards: it's a pain, but it's worth it!
