Releasing My Inner Dragon To The World | Lush Lunar New Year 2024 Range First Impressions

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that I’d start 2024 off with a bang and talk about the Lush Lunar New Year range. 

Inner Dragon Bath Bomb 

As 2024 is the Year of The Dragon, Lush have created an exciting bath bomb to help those who celebrate Lunar New Year create an exciting, unique and celebratory bathing experience.  The design of this bath bomb gives a nod to Chinese folklore as ‘dragons are typically seen holding a pearl in their claw or mouth, representing divinity and prosperity, and this New Year Dragon holds Lush’s Bath Bomb as a “pearl”! (Lush UK).

List Of Ingredients: 

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Alcohol Denat., Cornstarch, Neroli Oil, Sicilian Red Mandarin Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Orange Flower Absolute, Ginger Powder, Mandarin Powder, Titanium Dioxide, Water (Aqua), Dipropylene Glycol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Silica, Tin Oxide, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Hydroxycitronellal, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 14700, Colour 47005, Colour 15510, Colour 77491, Colour 15985:1, Colour 19140:1, Colour 45410:1

If you have shopped at Lush before then you may know the scent of this bath bomb via the Big Shampoo or the  Big Body Spray as they all share the same  scent. To me, the Neroli, Red Mandarin & Orange Flower blend together to create a floral salty scent. The Vanilla blends them together and creates an almost violet scent which layers beautifully on top of the almost saline scent that the other ingredients bring to the product. Sadly for me, the ginger comes across more as a colourant than a scent ingredient which is a shame as I thought the Ginger would compliment the almost sea breeze scent that Big already has. 

The bath art that this bomb creates does have an air of dragon to it as it creates a sort of peachy salmon colour which does remind me a bit of the fire that a dragon breathes. I’ll definitely be using this to celebrate the Lunar New Year! Priced at £7.
