Lush Review Easter Special!: The Immaculate Eggception Bath Bomb!
I thought I'd post a super special Lush review just in time for Easter! This huge sized bath bomb contains a lil surprise which depends on the colour you get. If you get pink... you get a cute lil mini chick bath bomb inside and if you get yellow you get a cute white bunny! All in all this bath bomb is said to make 3 baths (one bath per half - since the egg cracks into two halves) HOWEVER I found one half just did not have much smell or in fact any change to my baths water.
The smell is really what makes the Immaculate Eggception so special. To me it is heaven! It is a brand new fragrance which smells in my opinion just like chocolate! I even put it in my room for a while to fill my room with its gorgeous smell. But upon dropping one half in the bath, I could barely smell it so resulted in using both. You could smell it then, but not nearly as strong as I would have liked but I did smell it on my skin afterwards which was nice! I am yet to use the lil bunny which was inside, but it is tiny so I will definitely pair it with something. The bathwater goes a really funky unopaque yellow which stained my skin (yes my skin!!) and bathtub. I do think however for the price tag at £7.00 is totally unreasonable seeing as you can't really 3 decent baths out of it. Its definitely a cute little novelty but I won't be buying again.
- Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid - Makes bath bombs go fizz fizz!
- Grapefruit Oil, Lemon Oil and Vanilla Absolute - Combined these 3 make the amazing chocolate fragrance. But I can definitely smell notes of all 3.
- Dipropylene Glycol - This ingredient is included to decrease the viscosity (thickness) of products and as a solvent. I thought this ingredient was odd because its not included in many Lush items. High exposure to this ingredient is said to be dangerous but used in such small quantities such as the amount Lush probably use is said to pose no health risks. However there are debates about using products containing this everyday.
- Gardenia Extract - Used in chinese medicine to treat irritability, urinary tract infections and headaches. It is a very yellow liquid which probably explains the colouring of this egg perhaps but is also used because it can be manipulated into various different colours.
- Limonene and Linalool - Both of these are used for their fragrance with linalool having a very sweet odour and Limonene having a very lemony fragrance. These are required by law to be included on the ingredients list.
