Karma Shower Bomb

While a shower bomb wont change my life, the slogan 'don’t fear change - revel in it' is definitely something that I have been struggling with a lot these past couple of years. While I love progression, and dislike monotony a lot, there are still aspects of my life that I try to cling to when there isn't any need to. Learning to embrace is a far greater way of getting the most out of life, and unleashing a mountain full of stress that quite simply just doesn't need to exist.  

Offering one of Lush's oldest and most popular scents, Karma Shower Bomb is everything a fan of the fragrance could have possibly asked for. With the familiar blend of patchouli, orange and pine, this shower bomb delivers an aroma that you'll want to relive time and time again the shower. While a single piece won't offer you that much pleasure, this little pyramid of happiness can easily be sliced in half and shared across two separate experiences - sweetening the deal even more.

As with any of Karma's bath products, the fragrance on offer here is a powdery and slightly spicy one: very reminiscent of the Karma Sutra Bath Bomb. The patchouli gives out a strong, spicy and slightly woody smell; the orange sits alongside this and offers a sweet, slightly sherbety scent. Behind these two smells is an offering of pine and lemongrass, which work in perfect harmony with each other. The former adds a subtle herbal note whilst the latter brings about a little thread of green to the mix. Whereas the lotion and bubble bar are slightly sweeter and remind me of old fashioned cola bottles, the aroma is definitely more mature and more patchouli-orientated with Karma Shower Bomb.

As with all of Lush's new shower bombs, the idea is that you hold them under the running water, where they will begin to foam up in the palm of your hand. This foam can then be used much like a shower gel to clean and gently buffer your skin, leaving it super soft and smelling wonderful afterwards. The inclusion of the turmeric powerful in this bomb also helps to purify the pores a little during use, which is probably part of the reason why my skin felt so good afterwards. I could honestly smell this on my skin for a while after exiting the shower, and a little squirt of the perfume would have been a perfect match before bedtime. 

Whilst this is going on, the essential oils featured in the bomb intertwine with the heat and steam of the shower and create an atmosphere that is supposed to help calm and relax you - getting you ready for either a good night's rest, or a long productive, successful day.

As someone who was rather skeptical about the idea of a shower bomb, Karma has definitely gone on to prove that this concept does work, and it is effective at what it does. I would definitely buy this again in the near future, and I look forward to any other shower bombs that may come out in the future.
