Rocket Science Bath Bomb

As a full-fledged kid at heart, I can honestly say that I became perhaps a little too excited when I heard about the release of Rocket Science Bath Bomb earlier last week. Although only a temporary release in the Lush Kitchen, this bath product will be making its way into most shops within a matter of weeks, and I can imagine it making a big impression on those who rush out to get it. 

No stranger to rockets, Lush have already graced the world with both Rocketeer Bath Bomb and a Rocket Reusable Bubble Bar, and it seems as if this might be their greatest space-travelling invention yet. Originally created to support this year's Father's Day range, this bath bomb has got Lush fans rather excited about a permanent release.

Priced up at £2.95, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bath bomb is not as small as I envisaged it would be. Although a little lighter than the average 200g spherical bath bomb, this gorgeous ballistic packs a punch when it comes to how it interacts with the water, and for this reason I think it is great value for money.

Containing both bergamot and lemon oils, Rocket Science could be described as a powdery, fruity smell - very similar, in a way, to the popular Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb, albeit a little fresher and 'grassier'. There is also a rounded note that wraps itself around the citrus smell, that I can only describe as being like caramelised brown sugar. It's not particularly strong, and acts as more of a lasting thought, but it is still very much present.

Upon dropping this into the water, the bath bomb immediately began to send out thick, puffy waves of blue foam, and for a short time the bath bomb remained stagnant in its own blanket of foam. However, within thirty seconds these dispersed across the surface and the bath bomb began to move around as it was supposed to.

Within a very short space of time, the bath water had turned a wonderful shade of blue, and there was silver lustre swirling around underneath the surface: not enough that you need to be worried about being made to leave the bath looking like a disco ball. In fact, the colour and underlying lustre reminded me of my very much-loved Intergalactic Bath BombAfter a while, the yellow and pinks from inside begin to seep across the tub, and the water glistens in the light to create a very inviting, and very visually beautiful bath to submerge yourself in. 

Unfortunately, I did find that the smell tends to disperse quite a bit when it's in the water, and I wasn't able to detect much of the scent when I was using other products. Even when I had a short dose in the tub, and I submerged myself under for the most part, there was not much of a fragrance to enjoy. This was a shame as everything else about the bath bomb had worked so well up until this point.

As with most of Lush's bath bombs, this one left my skin feeling soft and nourished, although it was by no means one that goes above and beyond when it comes to your skin. In the future, I think I would pair this up with Star Light Star Bright to gage a little more scent from the experience. However, when it comes to the visual aspect of this bath bomb, I cannot fault it whatsoever. 

Overall, I definitely love the playful element to it, and I think this will be one that kids enjoy just as much as adults. The fragrance that it gives is sweet and refreshing, while also offering a little comforting blanket of muskiness at the same time.
