Lush IRL Bath Bomb Review

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! Recently, my friend, Alex picked me up a limited edition IRL Bath Bomb that Lush recently released for Digital Detox Day, so I thought that today, I would talk to you all about the product. 

A square light brown box containing a plethora of pink, purple and white rigid spherical bath bombs with a black rectangular card with irl in white large font on bright background

Lush recently partnered up with Zoella and Digital Detox Day to create the IRL Bath Bomb. Digital Detox Day was to promote how taking a day away from social media can help your mental wellbeing. This was then emulated into IRL Bath Bomb in a number of ways, including, the relaxing scent, the colours that this product creates in the water and the name of the bath bomb itself. IRL is well known internet slang for In Real Life. 

List Of Ingredients: 

Sodium Bicarbonate Citric Acid Organic Illipe Butter Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate Titanium Dioxide Rose Absolute Ylang Ylang Oil Mimosa Absolute Lavender Oil Lebanese Neroli Oil  Orange Flower Absolute Cornstarch Water (Aqua) Gardenia Extract PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate Dipropylene Glycol Propylene Glycol Synthetic Fluorphlogopite Tin Oxide Amyl Cinnamal Butylphenyl Methylpropional *Citronellol Geraniol Hydroxycitronellal *Limonene *Linalool Perfume Colour 45410:2 Colour 42090:2 Colour 42090 Colour 45410:1 Colour 45410 Colour 77491 Colour 15850:1

When I dropped this into the bath, the first scent that I got was Orange Flower Absolute. I have smelt this before within other products, thus I was able to detect the smoky scent as soon as the scent drew itself towards my nose. After a while, the Orange Flower Absolute blended together with the Neroli to create a sort of floral, resinous citrus scent. Neroli is known to boost serotonin levels which in turn helps us be a little bit happier which we all need during these hard times. The Rose slightly made the scent a slightly sweeter within the waters, but after a few moments, the Rose mingled together with the Ylang Ylang and Lavender to create a sort of light floral sea water scent. I know that this description doesn't sound that attractive on screen, but trust me it smells great. This product would be amazing for those who like clean or citrus scents.

This product produced a lot of bubbles, but once the bubbles from the Bath Bomb disappeared, a lovely layer of softness appeared from the Illipe Butter which made my skin feel amazing. I loved how my skin drank up all of the lovely butter to ensure my skin was hydrated whilst I stared at the lovely colourful waters that were produced from the product fizzing and foaming. 

Sadly this product is limited edition but do let me know if you have tried it.

Thanks for reading!
