Have you ever smelled something so good you just wanted to eat it (even though doing so would probably not be a very good idea!). This is one of those kind of products.
I’ve been an avid fan of Lush products since the beginning of this year when my mom dragged me into my first Lush store. Now she usually has to do the opposite, drag me OUT of the store.
When you first encounter a Lush store you are usually bombarded by the “Lush smell” way before you actually see the store. It has a very distinct smell. The scent of all the various treats wafts through the air to greet your nose. It will send you on a fairytale path right into middle of what my family now refers to as “the adults version of Willy Wonka…. except it’s soap!”. Well sort of.
Lush doesn’t ONLY sell soap. They have so many different varieties of body and face products I don’t even know where to begin sometimes. However in this review I will manage to stay focused on one product (as hard as that is to do!).
The Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb captured my attention the very first time I was in a Lush store. After standing in the middle of the store for a good five minutes just trying to take everything in I finally settled on the wall that held all the Bath Bombs (that’s where the majority of the luscious scents seemed to be coming from). I leisurely picked up one bath bomb after another, sniffing and comparing. That is until I happened upon Vanilla Fountain. WOW was my immediate reaction. A few sniffs later and I swear I almost ate the darn thing.
I bought three that day. I left one sitting on my dresser just so I could have that distinct, yummy, enticing scent permeate my room. I used the second one in my bath the very next morning and OH MY GOODNESS I could not believe how delicious I smelled. Not only did it leave my skin silky smooth but I felt like I had wrapped my skin in cake batter! It wasn’t a heavy, annoying scent. I found myself sniffing my arms throughout the day just so I could get my fix!
When you first pop this into your bath it fizzes slightly and then starts to disintegrate and melt into the water. It turns your bath water into a golden hue which helps add to an air of relaxation. Soak in the delightful scented water for a few minutes and then pat your skin dry. There should be no need for lotion. For one the bath bomb does a pretty good job of moisturizing and two, lotion would detract from the scent that is left on your skin.
The top two uses for this bath bomb are of course using it in the bath and also leaving one sitting in a room so that the scent penetrates every corner. Most vanilla scented candles can be obnoxious and overly sweet. Not in the case of this bath bomb. It has the perfect amount of sweet scent to leave you craving more.
