A Bath Bomb But For The Shower?! Say What?! | Karma Shower Bomb Review

Hey everyone!

How are you? 

Welcome to a brand new post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about the new Karma Shower Bomb from Lush. Side note: who's at Lush Showcase this weekend? Let me know down below!

Lush released their Lush Moods range via their Lush Labs section on their website. These were slowly released into the UK stores. The Lush Moods range consists of multiple products, including, a body conditioner, some bath bombs and Shower Bombs.

Ingredients & Scent 

The ingredients that are in this product include,

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Citric Acid, Potato Starch, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Calcium Lactate,  Sodium Alginate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Patchouli Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Lavandin Oil, Pine Oil, Elemi Oil, Water (Aqua), Turmeric Powder, Citral, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Linalool, Perfume, Colour 15510, Colour 47005, Colour 19140.

The Cream Of Tartar, Citric Acid and Potato Starch help the product to foam up. The starch also helps to slightly scrub at the skin when using it. If you have used any Karma scented product before then you'll know the scent. Patchouli gives a sort of earthy but slightly spicy scent, Pine offsets the full on spice in the Patchouli, and Orange gives it some brightness.

How To Use It: 

The way to use this is to pick up the block, get in the shower, turn the shower on and put the bomb in the palm of your hand, and then let the water run over it so it foams up. Once it has foamed, use that foam to wash yourself. The oils mixed with the hot water will make your shower smell amazing, and will make you feel amazing!

Texture:

The texure of the bomb before using it is very powdery. Once you put it under the water in the shower, the product creates a foam. That foam is the most luxurious and smooth foam that you'll come across in a long white. The Starch acts like a scrub and the foam is reminiscent of a body butter/mousturiser.

Price:

The price of this particular Shower Bomb (there are more, go and check Lush to find the rest) is £2.75.) It's meant for one use, but you can definitely get 2-3 uses out of it!

Overall Thoughts: 

I love this! I love Karma at this time of year, as its uplifting but spicy, so its a great scent for Summer to Autumn.I love how you can experience the bomb phenomenon even if you don't have a bath. The price is fab especially as you get more than one use out of it, and let's be honest, most bath bombs are double that price. I think that the powder is a bit annoying and messy, when you're trying to get it out of the packet when you're about to use it. Although, I get why it's there and I love how it can be used for an in shower scrub.

Have you tried anyt of the new Shower Bombs yet? Let me know down below!

Thanks for reading!
