I was so so excited to test out the Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb* because a) it was Halloween-themed, b) it smelled delicious, c) I love baths, and d) I had never tried a Lush Bath Bomb before.
Unlike other Lush bath products such as the Bubble Bar, as far as I can tell a Bath Bomb is a single use product, which means that it’s a spurge I had never afforded myself. They range in price, but the Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb is $5.95 and 200 g (ie: massive!).
So yes, while it is pricey for a single use item, I don’t rush my baths and I could easily spend the same amount on chocolate or a fancy drink, at least a bath bomb is good for me, relaxing, and can be easily enjoyed from the comfort of my home/bathtub.
But does my budget-conscious self think that the Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb is worth it? Well first I have to share what happens when you use it! The outside of the bath bomb is green with flecks of silver, but as it dissolve in the water a crimson center is revealed and the end result is wine-coloured water.
Honestly, I was under a mistaken impression that a “bath bomb” was more about bubbles (maybe because the last bath product I used from Lush was a “bubble bar”) so I was a little confused when not many bubbles showed up and although it smelled delicious, I was wondering if the Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb was going to be a disappointment. But then, I got into the bath.
The featured ingredient for the Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb is Patchouli Oil, which honestly doesn’t really sound very appealing to me, but it’s really not what I smelled. Rather, the scent is something warm, comforting and delicious that makes this the type of product that would have been great for Christmas as well (especially with the mix of red and green in your bath water!)
In addition to patchouli oil, it contains black pepper oil, vanilla (my favourite!) and gardenia extract which gives it that delicious scent. Despite the dark colour it made my water, the Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb didn’t stain my tub and it also didn’t have any loose “pieces” that might be annoying to some people. The scent from the water stayed on my skin long after my bath which is especially impressive considering I did use a body wash, and I loved it.
Overall, the experience of using the Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb has made me a believer! I need more bath bombs. They make your skin feel smooth and sleek in the water and the scent and sensation are incredibly relaxing. I’m in love! The only problem I have is that this is a seasonal product.
