Fox Bath Bomb




What is not to love about a bath bomb shaped like an adorable creature? Especially one that is also raising money and awareness for a great cause. Making its debut appearance at the Lush Summit event in February 2017, this limited edition bath bomb immediately stole the hearts of Lush fans around the globe, and left a rather large fox-shaped hole in the wallets of those able to grab some of the batch released online at the same time.

Fox Bath Bomb is exactly as you would expect: an adorable bright orange ballistic with a white bushy tail and adorable whiskers to match. Released as one of the limited edition products made to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Lush's Charity Pot, this bath bomb didn't stick around for very long, and rightly so.

Sharing its scent with the Lust Family, fans will no doubt recognise the familiar fragrance that can also be found in both the Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar and Yes Yes Yes Massage Bar. Pertaining a floral fragrance, the jasmine in this bath bomb is definitely at the forefront, which is something I was expecting, given how notoriously strong this smell is.

For those who have never experienced any of the products in this scent, the jasmine produces a very potent, sickly-sweet heady aroma. It's very intoxicating  indeed, and in some cases has even brought on a headache because of how strong it is. The bath bomb mimics that of the other products, but I was relieved to discover that it does mellow out somewhat in the tub.

Fox Bath Bomb begins fizzing immediately upon contact with the water - sending out streams of vivid orange across the surface. This is both a fast fizzer, and a loud one, and I calculated that it took under five minutes for the entire product to fully dissolve. As to be expected, it left behind a sea of orange-coloured water, which was a lovely shade to experience when the weather outside was so miserable.

As I said above, the jasmine calmed down just slightly in the tub, so it's not as intoxicating or as overpowering as it is to begin with. Instead, you get a wonderful sensual fragrance - one both sweet and floral, and one that leaves a lasting impression on your skin afterwards. This would be perfect to pair up with the liquid perfume as you could continue to enjoy the fruits of the jasmine far longer this way.

This bath bomb left my skin feeling lovely and soft, just like most of Lush's other bath bombs do. Furthermore, whether it was the aroma or the oils, I'm not sure, but I also thought that my skin felt and looked a little more radiant after my experience as well. This is definitely not the most interesting bath bomb to come out of Lush's lab recently, but it's definitely a relevant one, and a product I will enjoy using again and again.
