Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb

Maybe a bold statement to make but this is quite easily the greatest bath bomb design that Lush have ever created. More like a piece of art than a ball of sodium bicarbonate, all three of the limited edition Mother's Day products are simply stunning to look at, and if they're not brought back at a later date, Lush are doing their costumers a disservice.

Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb is one of three brand new bath bombs released in this shape for the seasonal range, and is perhaps my favourite when it comes to the colour combination. Blue, purple and pink speckles and splashes decorate the entire body of the butterfly, and no two bath bombs look alike, making these limited editions even more spectacular. 

Containing lemon and rose oils, my immediate reaction was to assume that this bath bomb would offer the Rose Jam scent, as I recognise just how popular this fragrance is across the Lush community. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this is a different aroma: one that isn't so far-removed from Rose Jam, but one that at least offers something a little different.

Far muskier, and equally a little more subtle with its helping of rose, this bath bomb showcases a very gentle, powdery floral aroma - one that has less lemon present overall. Fans who enjoy the Rose Jam fragrance will definitely find this one is to their liking. Yet those consumers who aren't so sure about this popular scent family, may also find that they can appreciate the smell of this bath bomb a little more than usual. While I don't think the word 'creamy' is the word I'm trying to think of when describing the smell of this, there is definitely something a little more warming and rounded about the smell of this.

As to be expected, the bath bomb colours the water a beautifully rich shade of violet, while the inclusion of a little silver lustre adds a sparkle to the water and that makes it even more beautiful. While a slow and rather quiet fizzer, there is nothing reserved about the swirls of colourful patterns that Rose Butterfly creates across the surface of the water.

What I did find with Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb is that it wasn't as instantly moisturising as some of the other bombs from this year's Mother's Day range. It took a good while for my skin to start feeling moisturised whilst I was in the tub. That's not to say that this product was in any way drying, just that it's not as quick to nourish your skin as some of the other bath bombs are. 

Having said that, my skin did feel clear and clean after I had bathed for a good hour in its waters, and there was a delicate shine to my skin that I very much appreciated.

Despite this, I didn't find that the scent was a strong as I would have liked it to be in the water. Perhaps the very nature of the fragrance meant that it was never going to be a smell that resonated outside of the tub. However, I was a little disappointed to find that I didn't smell much on my skin after I had dried myself down, and I still felt the need to moisturise afterwards, so any remaining scent would have been lost after this. 

Overall, Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb is a stunning innovation from Lush, and I only hope its the start of much more beautiful bath bombs in different shapes. The design and the smell are simply gorgeous, and the bath art in the water is definitely worth the price tag that you pay for this. Once this disappears after Mother's Day, I only hope it makes a reappearance again in the future.
