LUSH Big Blue Bath Bomb

LUSH Big Blue Bath Bomb
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.

  1. I would of been put off this due to the colour, but after seeing this I am quite intrigued. But I know I'll just cave and end up with my typical vanilla scented ones!

  2. Just had a little look on your instagram, wow that is a lot of seaweed but at least it left your skin beautifully moisturised xx

  3. Absolutely love Lush, I got this for my Mum and she loved it. Something I'd love to try but I'm not a fan of the feeling of seaweed.. Especially now you've said you removed it yourself, the thought of touching it isn't half pleasant!

    Noooooo, not seaweed! I hate it! If I had this bath bomb I would have to get my dad or something to fish out the seaweed as I cannot touch it at all.... eeeee I'm cringing as I type this!

  6. I totally get you, in the past I've never been into Lush but I'm starting to love them more and I've bought quite a few things recently! So bad that the seaweed was too much as the moisturizing properties sound great! :) xx

  7. This sounds awful! I really hate seaweed.. What a strange thing to put in a bath bomb! I'd be worried about my bath pipes getting blocked xx

  8. The amount of seaweed does sound pretty disconcerting, but I love how this smells - the salty ocean smell is surprisingly relaxing...

  9. You know if there had been no seaweed it probably would have been right up there with one of my favourites. I'm not a huge fan of seaweed but I can cope with it, I know it has really good health properties etc but there was just too much for one bath. That's the reason I took it out to be honest, the pieces were relatively small but I was just too worried xx

  10. Ah this sounded perfect until you mentioned the seaweed! I've tried Lush products before with the seaweed and wasn't a fan in the slightest I just think it feels weird to sit in a bath of seaweed…but that's just me! xx

  11. lush products are always a hit and miss with me. I have a love and hate relationship with lush haha. I love some of their face masks and their vanilla body cream. P.S i love the photo and the colour of the bath bomb. That is definitely my favourite colour at the moment.

  12. I also find Lush products hit and miss, and really dont like the idea of some of the products clogging up the drain. Some just feel more hassle than they're worth. I really like the colour and scent of Big Blue though... swings and roundabouts!

  14. It sure was a lot of seaweed! The moisturising benefits were really good though I can't knock it for that x

  15. YES! It wasn't too bad to be honest, I'm not that squeamish but it still wasn't the best. It defeated the whole point of having a nice relaxing bath x

  16. They sure do, I like that though, I like that they are different :) x

  20. No no, it is a bit weird I agree. I got used to it but I felt like I couldn't relax, it wasn't normal haha although I guess it hits the feeling of being in the sea somewhat x
