With the new job, days off are treasured. Heck, even my evenings after I get home from work, kick off my shoes, and put my feet up are gold in my schedule. So this weekend was pamper time! Of course, I plopped a sheet mask on my face (they’re oddly relaxing…) and ran a tub full of steaming water.
After my first Lush experience, I knew I would be back. The tiny corner of my shopping mall has a dimly lit shop that smells like what I imagine Heaven is like. My newest Lush addition is the Sakura bath bomb. I’ll admit, it was a difficult decision. I’ve ad to resolve myself to only one bath bomb at a time you know… because of the current size of my paychecks and all. 😉
I’m not a huge fan of glittered bath bombs. As many memes on the internet point out, glitter is the herpes of crafting. So I’m not too keen to have it in my tub or on my body. When I saw Sakura in the store, I was quite pleased. It has a simplistic elegance to it (can you use the word elegance for bath bombs?).
The scent is very soft and mildly sweet–a little floral. The ingredients contain mimosa, orange flower, jasmine, and gardenia. It also contains sea salt and lemon oil (which isn’t noticeable). There’s no glitter, no “fillings”, and no clean up! Whoo hoo!
The bomb fizzes some when you drop it in, but that’s about it. It doesn’t change the water colors, unlike Big Blue which gives off a bluish-green reminiscent of the sea. The scent in the water is very light. This would be the perfect bath bomb for someone who doesn’t like heavy scents, glitter, or colored rings around their bathtubs. If you’re looking for heavily perfumed, interesting, “fun” bath bombs that will entertain as well as pamper you, then Sakura won’t be it.
I rate the Lush Sakura bath bomb 3.5 pomegranates. It was nice, but the scent wasn’t very strong. I liked using it, but would probably buy a different bomb next time. Big Blue still remains a favorite
but seaweed clean up does not.
