Big Blue Egg Bath Bomb

Sometimes I think that Lush are super creative and inspired, and that's why I love and support the company so much. Then there are other moments when they bring out a product that doesn't seem as if much thought has gone into it at all. Such is the case during Easter 2017, when the company released four bath bombs that were exactly like the regular ones you could buy in store, albeit shaped like an egg instead.                                                                    

While the novel idea made for some great egg hunts for those who didn't want to divulge in the chocolate variety, and they were certainly more ethically sound when compared to the sugar-filled rubbish that lined the supermarket shelves, for regular fans it filled four places that we'd rather have seen a handful of brand new releases instead.
Gripe aside, there is no denying that Big Blue Egg is a bath bomb that'll leave you feeling wonderfully pampered. Sharing everything with Big Blue Bath Bomb, this limited edition is the perfect product for those after something super soothing and moisturising on the skin. Pop one of these bad boys in the tub and you'll left feeling like you've brought the ocean into your bathroom.    

The bath bomb is packed with seaweed, so much so that you'll find yourself laying on a bed of the stuff when you're relaxing under the water. The type of kelp Lush use is called Arame seaweed, which softens in your hot bath water and helps you to relax. Not only is Arame rich in vitamins and minerals including iodine, which help to regulate the metabolism and help you to feel calm and collected, but its softening properties are impressive enough to leave an instant impression on the body.
Big Blue Egg also contains lemon and lavender oils, which both add to the overall aroma of the product as well as benefitting the skin as well. The former ingredient is known for cleaning out the pores, clearing and unwinding the mind, and gives the ballistic a sweet, citrusy scent. The lavender oil, which works as a cleanser, smoothens out your skin and leaves a slight herbal element in the mix. Those with sensitive skin will appreciate that this aforementioned ingredient also calms and soothes the body, and helps to reduce the redness of any forms of irritation.

Finally, the inclusion of the salt helps to remove dead skin as well as once again cleansing the pores even further. The inclusion of the minerals in salt adds to the softness of the water, and the reason why your skin will feel incredible after using one of these.

As to be expected from the colour of this bath bomb, the water transforms into a vivid blue, once Big Blue Egg has fully dissolved, and the scent and the colour stays with you for the entirety of the bath. My skin felt super smooth and soft after using this; it didn't feel tight or in any way dry. The fragrance lingered on my body and lasted until the following day, which was a nice surprise. 
My only problem with this bath bomb, as with her older sister, is that the seaweed becomes rather annoying trying to scoop it out of the water afterwards. For this reason, I would recommend little this dissolve whilst sitting in a sieve so that the seaweed is caught before it begins to pattern your bath tub. 

This is definitely not something I need or would want to buy again, simply because I have Big Blue to do that, and it appears cheaper than this seasonal special. However, there is certainly not anything about this bath bomb that I would change.
