Hey guys! Again, I’m sorry for the late review! I’ve been stashing this bath bomb away since my trip to Berlin in February of this year.
Again, this bath bomb become very damp while in my storage, and became somewhat… Warped? It still smelled fine and the only discolouration on the bath bomb was due to ink from its blue paper bag transferring onto it. Regardless, I made sure to use it ASAP after noticing! This will however have affected the performance of this bath bomb, so keep that in mind whilst reading this review.
Also, I realise that it would be a good idea to swish around the bath water and take some photos of the colour that it turns overall, which I will make sure to do in the future!
I hope you enjoy!
Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb Review:
There are rose petals within this bath bomb, that I was completely unaware about beforehand. I don’t know if they are like this if you use the bath bomb straight after purchasing it while it is still very fresh, but the rose petals for me were very dark brown, dead and honestly, kinda gross. I didn’t like them being in my bath with me at all honestly, and took them out pretty much as soon as I got in. If you don’t like the idea of old bits of flowers floating around your bath tub then perhaps it would be best to give another bath bomb a try!
This was an exclusive bath bomb from from the Valentines day collection early on in this year. This bath bomb is not available all year, which means it’s quite difficult to get your hands on!
The scent of Rose Bombshell is very light, sweet, clean, powdery and floral. If you’re not a big fan of typically feminine scents, you probably won’t like how this one smells.
The scent is also quite strong, so you can’t really get away with taking a bath with this bath bomb if you don’t like the scent very much.
Rose Bombshell turns the bath water a delicious raspberry, bubblegum, summer fruits pink colour. Although I loved my bath water being this shade of pink, I know that a lot of people absolutely hate the colour and find it obnoxious, so steer clear of Rose Bombshell if you’re one of these people!
My bath bomb sank to the bottom of the bath tub straight away and didn’t create much surface bath art, however, this is likely due to me storing the bath bomb for a long time and it becoming damp. I have however read that more and more of Lush’s bath bombs have been performing this way lately, so it could be Lush’s problem that it performed this way for me. Regardless, if you like a really good show in your bath, I’d steer clear of Rose Bombshell if it is released in the future!
I personally really like the colour that Rose Bombshell turned my bath water. The colour reminded me a lot of the colour of Robinson’s Summer Fruits Fruit & Barley – a sort of translucent bubblegum, raspberry pink colour. It’s one of the best coloured baths I’ve ever bathed in, and would 100% repurchase this bath bomb just for that bath water colour!
The bath bomb made the bath water feel quite moisturising, without being oily or greasy at all.
I also really enjoyed the scent of Rose Bombshell, and it made the bathroom smell really good for hours and hours after using the bath bomb!
The appearance of this bath bomb is really cute (although my photos definitely do not do it justice!) It’s a spherical pink bath bomb with cute rose patterns on the top of it. Absolutely adorable!
Again, this was a Valentine’s day exclusive, and I think this would definitely make for a romantic bath 🙂
Overall, I really enjoyed this bath bomb! It was super cute, and I like me a super cute bath 🙂 If you’re not the sort of person who enjoys embracing your feminine side, you probably won’t be so keen on it. I however love embracing my girly princess side every once in a while!
Overall, I rate Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb a 4/5* rating. I know it’s silly, but those damn rose petals really put me off, but without them the bath water was fairly simple and its properties weren’t all that amazing. Based on the colour alone though, I’d definitely give Rose Bombshell a 5 star rating!
I’d definitely recommend grabbing one of these bath bombs should Lush release them again at some point (if you enjoy girly baths!) 🙂
