Peeking Into Harajuku | Lush Harajuku Exclusives First Impression


Hey everyone!

How are you? Is everything going good? Let me know down below!

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I went to Manchester last week and popped into the wonderful Lush Arndale. When I arrived, I noticed that they had a fair new products out to commemorate the 30th Birthday of the Bath Bomb, so I thought that I would tell you what Bath Bombs they had in today's post. (If you wanna read about my last Lush post, then, click here.)

Kitsune

Kitsune refers to a Fox in Japanese culture. They are also known to be intelligent beings with paranormal skills that mature with age. This bath bomb looks amazing and smells divine. The scent consists of Sicillian Lemon and Patchouli. The Lemon will help to refresh your mind and help you feel awake, whereas the Patchouli will help recharge you. The Lemon is definitely the more prominent smell, as it takes a couple of sniffs to realise that there is Patchouli in there.

Groovy Kind Of Love

It's groovy baby! This Bath Bomb contains, Rosewood, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang. I expected it to be very floral, just from this description, but that's not the case. This bomb has a sort of flowery essence to it with a sort of deep pepper note going on. Floral and Pepper sounds weird, I know, but stay with me. When you sniff it, you get the powdery floral-ness of the Ylang Ylang and the Rosewood. That's expected. However, on the second sniff, you get the deep Pepper note from the Bergamot.

Harajuku

All of the new bath bombs have come from the bath bomb only store in Harajuku, Japan, so it makes sense to talk about the self-titled Bath Bomb. Harajuku contains Brazilian Orange Oil, Benzoin Resinoid and Vanilla Absolute. The best way that I can explain this scent, is, Bubblegum. By Bubblegum, I don't mean Snow Fairy. I mean pure unfiltered Bubblegum. The stripes of colour, instantly make me think that this will be an amazing one for the water! I like this one but I think it's an one in a while bomb for me.

Turmeric Latte

Oh my god. This bath bomb. Go and smell it if you can. Turmeric Latte contains, Tonka Absolute, Benzoin Resinoid, Vanilla Absolute, Turmeric Powder, and, Coconut Milk Powder. The Bath Bomb smells spicy but sweet. It reminds me of the Viktor and Rolf fragrance 'Spicebomb.' I just love it. It's sweet enough to be used in the Summer but spicy enough to use in the Winter. I actually bought one of these to use in the bath at the hotel I was staying in, but  sadly I didn't have time to use it.

Chocomint

Mint Aero Bubbles in a Bath Bomb form? Who would've thought it?! This bomb contains Almond Oil, Cocoa Powder, and, Spearmint Oil, When I sniffed this, I mainly got the Spearmint with a hint of Cocoa. I think that the Almond is mainly more there to make the bomb a little bit sweet. I think that this would be a great one to use for sore muscles, or for a morning bath. (Morning baths are amazing, especially at the weekend!)

Magma

Who doesn't love a volcano? Magma is here to make all of our hearts rupture with joy! This bomb contains Ginger Powder, Mustard Powder, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Peppermint Oil and Popping Candy. If you've ever smelt Wiccy Magic Muscles, then it's on the same lines as that. I love this one as it's spicy and just great for when you need a hot bath. I love anything with Cinnamon in so I knew that I would love this instantly from the first sniff. The popping candy is mainly more there for sound aesthetics, as it helps the bath bomb to sound like a rupturing Volcano.

Moon Spell

Moon Spell is a very different sort of bomb. It comes in two parts, and when you push them together in the water, it makes the bath glow with delight. This product contains just Brazillian Orange Oil. It's deep but citrus and I love it.
