Melusine Bath Bomb

Let's be honest: £5.95 for a bath bomb is an expensive investment. For that sort of price, if the product was any less than perfect, it would not be worth the hefty price tag. Luckily for those who chose to invest in this bath bomb blindly, you will not be left disappointed. 

Melusine Bath Bomb is one of twelve limited bath bombs released earlier this week in the Lush Kitchen. With the recent release of the Bath-only Harajuku store in Japan, of which 59 bath bombs are exclusively only available in that store, many fans were left disappointed that they wouldn't be able to get their hands on some real gem items that were showing up on social media. Thankfully, Lush decided to bring out a small selection, of which this particular bomb was featured.

Sharing its scent with Avocado Cowash, this gorgeous bath bomb smells of everything you would expect it to, and more. Bergamot, litsea cubeba and olibanum oils create a super fruity and richly sultry aroma to indulge your senses in. Having described the scent before as being like a freshly made lime cheesecake: tart, fruity and melt-in-your-mouth creamy, I should probably add that this bath bomb offers a whole extra dosage of yumminess. 

If you're a fan of the recent Avocado Nowash Body Lotion, or the previous shower gel that came out earlier this year, you'll absolutely adore this bath bomb and want to buy up as many as you can before they sell out online. To say that this has made it into my top five favourite bath bombs of all time is an achievement that takes something of great power to do so. 

What I loved about this bath bomb was the green and yellow design across the surface, which coupled with circular indents across the whole of the sphere made it look like that of a mermaid's tail or a dragon's skin. Whether you're a timid swimmer who likes to live under water, or a fierce beast that breathes fire, this bath bomb will win over your heart within seconds.

As soon as Melusine was popped into the water, beautiful streams of white, green and yellow froth began to ebb out into the bath tub. As the bath bomb continued to rock from side to side, and spin round and round, a sea of bright green began to form in the bath - one that was coated with a beautiful blanket of white. As the white dissolved away, you began to see the golden lustre  glittering in the light, and my heart was well and truly won over.

What was incredible about this bath bomb was that the fragrance remained prominent throughout the whole experience. While not in any way intoxicating, the smell sat above any product that I used alongside it, and stayed on my skin afterwards for a good few hours. Furthermore, I could still smell it in my bathroom hours later as well, and I kept walking past the bathroom door just so that I could smell it over and over.

As if that wasn't impressive enough, the water was so velvety soft that my skin felt softer within minutes of submerging myself beneath the water, and I left the tub feeling truly amazing, with my skin glowing and feeling so replenished and moisturised. I know that Lush fans are probably planning to couple this bath bomb with their body lotion of the same scent, but I can honestly say that you won't need it: your skin will be pampered enough.

Why this is only an exclusive in Japan at the moment is a completely absurd concept when this is perhaps on par with Intergalactic as being the best bath bomb that they currently sell. I only hope that they make this a regular feature in all stores because it would be a best-seller without a doubt.
