Frozen Bath Bomb



'Let it go, let it gooooooo, you can't hold me back any mooooore!'. Every since Lush hinted that one of their bath bombs was inspired by the Disney sensation, Frozen, I've found myself singing that song over and over again. Funnily enough, while my flatmates are relishing in my newfound 'love' for the song, I am currently fighting the urge to gouge out my ears and feed them to the neighbour's dog. 

Truth be told - I don't think I have found a song as irritating as this one in a good many years, if ever. As you can imagine, I already felt a little resentful towards the bath bomb before I had even removed it from the wrapper, and I was not expecting much from it at all. Imagine my delight then, when I was greeted with a bath bomb that surpassed all of my expectations and has gone on to be one of my favourite bath bombs from Lush. 
Frozen plays the part when it comes to its design - a pale, pearly-blue shell decorated with a darker blue waist band and the faintest hint of lustre on the surface. While it looks exactly how you would imagine a Frozen-inspired bath bomb to look, it definitely surprised me when it came to the scent. 

Containing both grapefruit and neroli oil, this bath bomb has a beautifully-gentle but equally poignant fragrance. The sweetness of the neroli comes through perfectly here - a wonderful fresh floral smell that gives this bath bomb the same scent as the popular Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioner. 

Alongside this is an uplifting, fruity layer of grapefruit that compliments the floral element and gives Frozen such a relaxing, beautiful smell. I happen to think that this product is a perfect springtime bath bomb. The reason I say this is simple - while most people don't enjoy taking baths when the weather is hot, when you do you want something light and uplifting; something that gives off a strong aroma but one not so potent that it's cloying or heavy on the senses. This ballistic is exactly that.

As if the fragrance wasn't impressive enough, the bath bomb is even more exciting in the tub. Upon hitting the water, Frozen immediately begins to fizz - rocking back and forth as it spews out a thick, creamy white foam that spreads out across the surface of the bath. At the same time, the centre of the ballistic opens up and begins to ebb out a beautiful trail of blue foam. 

This explosion of colour goes on for a good ten minutes - creating a blanket that covers most of the surface and turning the water into the most stunning shade of blue I have ever seen from a bath bomb. I'd describe it's colour as almost a dark cyan, which I think is really fitting for the theme of the product. 

While the bath bomb is full of lustre, it doesn't leave a mess on your skin and instead washes away with ease. However, while you're in the tub, the glitter glistens and swirls beneath the surface and gives the water almost a pearl-eque effect. Together, the blue and the lustre offer that icy feel about it - perfectly in-keeping with the Frozen theme.
Despite the lack of oils and butters in this bath bomb, it is incredibly moisturising and my skin felt silky-smooth and radiant when I exited the tub. Furthermore, the bath bomb left a gentle impression on my skin and I was able to pick up subtle bursts of scent for a good hour or so after exiting the tub. 

For a bath bomb that I wasn't wholly bothered about to begin with, Frozen sure did a good job at defrosting my heart and making me fall in love with it. This is a product that I will buy again and again, and I only hope that they make it a permanent member of the range so I can access it a little easier than having to visit the store every few weeks.

  5. Used this bomb tonight combined with one of the new bath melts, what a result!! If you're going out for an evening or special occasion & want to sparkle this is the combination to use. Even after drying off with a towel, the lustre sticks to the skin because of the oils & leaves you shimmering all over.
    Lovely bathbomb with/without the oils.

    When it comes to marketing purposes, custom retail boxes are awesome

    Yes, that's correct. Thank you. Incorporating style, colors, and printing can help you meet all of your marketing needs. In some cases, custom retail boxes can use as a sole marketing tool. You can, however, include this option as part of your marketing strategy in other situations. If you're launching a new product, you'll want to use this marketing tool. As a result, they can only attract customers by using attractive boxes when they are searching for the products they need
