- Big Blue Bath Bomb by LUSH
Swimming in the sea with seaweed all around you seems normal, but looking into your tub and seeing so much seaweed swimming around made me a little nervous (normally I’m more brave) and I did consider looking for a strainer. However I said to myself: “Self, you get in that tub and stop being so silly.” And so I did and the experience was rather pleasant. I’m used to rose petals floating about, but this was actually even better as the seaweed doesn’t tickle.So, what happens when you add this bath bomb to the tub? Well, it is one of the prettiest Lush baths which foams around the bath, first creating an island that looks also like a volcano bubbling up from the tub. Then the colors appear about as the bath bomb swirls beneath the foamy island, creating a seashore and waves. It is actually very interesting.Finally, you have a deep blue bath with Atlantic Sea Salt. The lavender oil and lemon oil seem to deep cleanse the skin and the lemon oil is rather refreshing. The Seaweed seems to float about, but then it just keeps to itself until you stir it back up into the water by moving around.So, if you are looking for a deep cleansing spa-like experience and you don’t mind swimming about like a mermaid in seaweed, then this might be for you. If you don’t like the seaweed, you might be able to put this in some cheesecloth, tie it up with a string and still get all the benefits, without all the seaweed floating about. It would be cute if they packaged this in some netting with a string.Big Blue is perhaps the most adventurous Lush bath product I’ve tried. If you prefer rose petals, try the Romance in a Stone bath ballistic (has a romantic poem inside). I’m also looking forward to trying “Still Life” with sunflower petals, lemon and wild sweet orange. Life would be less fun without Lush. The therapy massage bar is lovely after this bath and you might enjoy the Sea Vegetable Soap – it also seems to have the same seaweed in it.~The Rebecca Review
Best bath bomb to deodorize and soothe sore puffy feet
I really didn’t like the smell of this Big Blue in the store (though it really smelt like the ocean… dried seaweed and all!), however when I got home to try it, the smell was actually kind of sweet smelling rather then dead fish smelling. Thank goodness because I found this to be the best bath bomb to use to soothe sore and achy feet. I work retail, so I’m on my feet for hours at a time and when I get home, I crumble some of the Big Blue into my foot spa and it deodorizes and relieves my feet so quickly. The real sea salt works as an anti-inflammatory and helps any swelling go down also.I don’t have a bathtub to actually try it as a BATH bomb, but I can imagine how great it would feel. The seaweed in the bomb also helps to soften my rough feet and when I follow with LUSH’s Fair Trade Foot Lotion, my feet are so comfortable!
this is great for people with sore tired muscles…as it spins I keep my knees bent and keep it under my legs…the seawees feels like a thousand little fingers against my skin…what a great way to feel better at the end of a long day….
