Figaro Figaro Bath Bomb

I have carried out very little research into most of the new bath bombs that Lush have brought out recently. This has allowed me the freedom to experience each and every one of them without any preconceptions about what's going to happen, and it has also opened up my world to one or two surprises as well. Such is the case with this little bath bomb.

Figaro Figaro is a little on the small size, hence the lower price tag than the regular sized bath bombs. But that doesn't mean, for one second, that the performance of this little gem is anything less than incredible. And if you're one for surprises, you may want to invest in one for well as choosing not to read any further as those surprises will be quickly ruined.

Containing a blend of so many different oils, it was hard to imagine just what this bath bomb might smell like. However, Lush have described the key notes as being peppermint, sage, thyme and eucalyptus, and I can see why they have placed these four as the top components.

Before I start describing the scent, I feel that I should point out that the fragrance of this is very weak. In fact, it wasn't until I placed the bath bomb in the water that I really experienced the four key elements that I listed above. Much like Geode Bath Bomb, this one scores more points because of how it performs in the tub, not because of the scent at all.
To my nose, the herbal elements are the strongest notes, followed shortly after by a floral layer underneath. The sage, thyme and eucalyptus create a very delicate musky herbal scent, with the latter ingredient also adding an almost clinical scent that gives Figaro Figaro a 'clean' feel about it. 

Alongside this, the peppermint oil adds a touch of mint to the aroma, although it's very much an afterthought, and I wouldn't describe the aroma of this to be a minty scent at all. As I mentioned above, it took me placing this into the water to really pick out any of these notes for myself, and I would suggest that if you like robust fragrances you stay well away from this one. Ultimately, this bath bomb does hold its presence in the water, but it's not a very powerful one.

Aside from creating the fragrance, these key components are also amazing for your skin. Peppermint soothes and relieves muscle tightness, as well as relieving both physical and mental tension. The inclusion of thyme and sage is both antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, so will soothe any redness or itchiness, and restore the skin back to its relaxed self. Finally, eucalyptus is a great decongestant: helping you to breathe better, or indeed help to clear your airways when you have a cold.

What is impressive about Figaro Figaro is the way it performs in the tub. As soon as you place the bath bomb into the water, a vivid shade of both red and yellow burst from the little ballistic and quickly colours the water a deep shade of red. Don't judge this bath bomb by its outer shell, because the colour you get is so far removed from the gentle pastel shades you see to begin with.

Once the bath bomb had fully dissolved, a hidden note burst from the remnants and presented me with a few lines from the opera The Barber of Sevilla, which is the main inspiration behind this whole bomb. While these little touches aren't needed, I always appreciate the sentiments behind Lush's little creations, and I appreciated this surprise very much.

At the risk of saying the same thing as I did in my Geode Bath Bomb review, Figaro Figaro is all about the performance, and ultimately less about the fragrance it comes with. While it left my skin super moisturised and feeling wonderfully smooth, the scent wasn't present for very much of my whole experience, and I do like a bath bomb with a strong smell. This is one that I would definitely buy again, but also one that I would couple with another product to give me a stronger aroma in the water.
