Cilla The Caterpillar Bath Bomb

With the amount of new Lush items that have made themselves available over this past year, it's becoming incredibly difficult to keep up with all of the releases, especially when items appear unannounced and are sold out in a matter of days. Luckily, I was able to grab one of these limited edition bath bombs, however I know that many fans missed out on these beauties. 

First appearing in the Liverpool store, Cilla The Caterpillar Bath Bomb was originally designed for consumers booking parties within the store itself. Alongside a few other products, this wonderful bath bomb is only available for those who invest quite a lot into celebrating their birthday in style. However, Lush was kind enough to release a limited run online, and I was lucky enough to grab one before they disappeared. 
Priced up at £7.95, this is an investment that many consumers will want to evaluate before they hand over their cash, which is why I hope that my review will serve to help you make up your mind. While initially I was a little taken a-back by the seemingly extortionate price, you'll be relieved to hear that Cilla comes in two separate pieces, which means you're technically investing in two bath bombs at the same time.

What I will say is that each piece is definitely slightly smaller than your regular sized bath bombs. However, the scent, design and just how well this works in the bath makes this party exclusive definitely worth the investment, in my eyes. If it makes a reappearance on the Lush website, I myself would be happy to purchase another one. 

Sharing its scent with the Vanillary range, this gorgeous little insect boasts a strong, musky vanilla aroma: one that I have described before as being like burnt caramel with a sprinkling of floral underneath to give it more 'bounce.' This is such a warm, comforting aroma and matches the scent of the liquid perfume so well. In fact, I feel as if the smell of this bath bomb is far better and stronger than the original Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb, which also offered the same aroma. 
While I used both of mine at the same time (for aesthetically pleasing pictures) this bath bomb can be used across two baths, both of which will provide you with a strong, robust fragrance to engage with; and both of which will offer you a silky smooth and incredibly nourishing bath water to boot.
Having said that, it's definitely worth you climbing into the bath before you drop Cilla The Caterpillar in as she tends to perform most of her show rather quickly, dissolving until she becomes a few small pieces that bob silently and fizzle away on their own accord.

Within a split second of hitting the water, green and orange foam race out from beneath her and sweep out across the surface of the water. While she stays afloat for a matter of seconds, her body soon disappears under a fluffy of coloured foam, until all that is left are her rather accusing eyes. These take a long time to dissolve and they tend to drop to the base of the bath tub after a while, which isn't a problem. 

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved, you're left with a beautiful moss-like shade of green, which is thanks to the inclusion of the orange alongside the green itself. This shade is definitely in-keeping with the concept of a caterpillar bath bomb, and I thoroughly enjoyed the surprise as I continued to bathe my stresses away. 
What was impressive about Cilla was that the water not only radiated a sweet, warming aroma that wrapped around me like a blanket, but the water was super moisturising and left my skin feeling brand new. Furthermore, the fragrance also lingered on both my body and hair afterwards, and this was just what I needed before heading to bed.

While I don't really associate the Vanillary smell with partying by any means, Cilla The Caterpillar is definitely worth trying out at least once, and I just know that kids will love using this one themselves. Soothing and beautiful in every way possible, this is definitely one of my favourite bath bomb releases of the year.
