Peng Bath Bomb

There will never be a time when I would pass up the opportunity to spend the day at the beach: soaking up the sun and the sea, and playing the many summer sports to keep me active while the heat turns my skin a golden brown. Very privileged was I to grow up living a couple of minutes away from the beach, and my desire to be there almost every day shows how my childhood setting has shaped the person I am today. 

When Lush first announced that Peng would be one of the exclusive bath bombs released online earlier this year, I knew that I wouldn't be letting this one pass me by. In fact, it's actually taken me a lot of strength to not choose this as one of my first experiences with the new Harajuku collection: the English weather has certainly made me want to reach for the sun even more as of late.

Designed to look like a beach ball, this brand new bath bomb offers not only a wonderful scent but it puts on one hell of a display in the bath as well. Containing rosewood, litsea cubeba and sandalwood, this beauty offers a combination of fruity and calming. The litsea cubeba, which has been made incredibly popular as the key note in the Avocado Cowash range, presents itself as a sweet, fruity (and mildly citrusy) aroma. 

Yet, rather than disappearing into the rather large crowd of other 'citrusy' bath bombs, this one features two other components that add woody and very warming layers that set this one apart. There is something rather calming about the smell of this, which echos the sentiments of lazing on the beach, and also something intriguingly smoky that makes your experience far more comforting than you can imagine.

While not the same scent, Peng reminded me very much of The Boog Bath Bomb, in that it was delicately fruity, but also had a creaminess about it that made it even more enjoyable in the water. Furthermore, much like the aforementioned bomb, this brand new edition also offers a lot of wonderful colours in the bath. 

As soon as this hits the water, the thick layers of foam begin to spread out across the tub, sending with them a gorgeous smell that resonates around your tub, and continues to do so whilst you are submerged beneath the water. As the bomb bobs and spins on the surface, swirls of pink, blue and yellow begin to form patterns across the water that settle over time to create a beautiful bronze-coloured water.

While not as softening as other bath bombs, this one still makes your skin feel soft and smooth after you've towelled yourself down, and the featured sandalwood oil definitely helps to calm, and as Lush say 'rebalance' your mind before you leave. Despite its fruity notes, this one suited me well when I used it before my bedtime, as I felt refreshed but equally relaxed.

While not necessarily the bath bomb that would turn heads when placed next to the other millions of Harajuku exclusives, Peng is one of those bath bombs that have a 'classic' feel about them. It does everything you'd expect it to, without any gimmicks or nasty surprises that some of Lush's other recent bombs have presented to me. This is definitely one that I would buy again.
