When I saw this bath bomb at the Christmas Launch, I knew I wanted to try it asap. Northern Lights is a purple bath bomb that dissolves with blue and yellow from either end. It sort of gives the illusion of the Northern Lights in the sky. The water underneath melts into a sort of bluey green, which is pretty on its own. It smells beautiful, a floral ylang ylang which is very relaxing.
Northern Lights is very interesting to watch. It take a good while to fully melt into the bath, with the two colours shooting the bomb all around the bath, twisting and turning. The bath bomb itself is basically a tube with two coloured ends. The blue and yellow dissolve really fast, while the purple is very slow but gradual. It creates a sort of stream through the water as it melts away.
The brightness of all three of the colours really makes for a bright bath, with a very bold tone jewel tone when it all mixes together.
It bubbled up pretty well holding it’s colour, enough that there was a little bit on the top of the bath, but not too much that I needed a shower after. The bath was so soft and refreshing for my skin. It was definitely a treatment, my skin was so smooth the next day.
Overall, it was a very relaxing experience, both from the calm of watching ti dissolve, soaking in a night sky coloured bath and the calming smell.
I would love to have this in my bath so I’ll be buying a few more of these before the season ends, just for the year, but I still hope they bring it back next year. I’m sure they will given what everyone seems to think of it.
Thank you to the team at LUSH for my Northern Lights Bath Bomb
