Lush Bombardino Bath Bomb


This has got to be one of THE cutest bath bombs ever. Mine is a little dusty looking but you can still see his cuteness. He's inspired by a popular Italian drink which I must try to make one day or visit 
Italy one day and get one (I wish!).



Lush claims:
Sit back and relax in a bath of creamy Alpine indulgence. With skin-softening cocoa butter and uplifting Sicilian lemon oil.
This little fellow takes his inspiration from an apres ski drink traditionally made in the Italian Alps with eggnog, brandy and whipped cream. Our version of the Bombardino is just as rich and creamy, smelling like a lemon meringue pie. With added cocoa butter to soften your bath water, Bombardino will leave your skin feeling silky and soothed

So this is definitely one of the smaller bombs.

He smells like Honey I Washed the Kids (or Honey Bee or Ma Bar) with a little extra bakery lemon. So basically a toffee/honey/lemon scent. I was really disappointed because when he dissolved so did any trace of a scent. My bath was basically unscented.

He left more foam than any other bath bomb and had lots and lots of softening Cocoa Butter.  My skin feels like I put Cocoa Butter all over. His little head took forever and ever to dissolve.No biggie.



It turned the water yellow. Some people are bothered by the color but I don't mind. Yellow is a happy color. It had glitter but it was mostly unnoticeable.
