I don’t go by the guise of mybeautywaxstash for no reason! I love products for the bath, body, face and home fragranced wax. I find these areas interesting, I like knowing more about them and seeing various products, and of course I enjoy using them. Trying different products from different brands/vendors is always good to do to spice up my product drawer. I tend to buy my pamering bath products more so from small vendors because I believe in supporting small businesses and the variety and quality of things such as bath bombs, bubble bars and soaps I’ve found to be very high with the vendors I have used so far. But sometimes its good to go back to the start, and one company we are all familiar with who probably started if not helped kick start the popularity of these types of products is LUSH. And passing by one of their stores in Manchester recently I needed no excuse to pop in and have a nosy.Three products came home with me including Geode Bath Bomb.
Why did I chose Geode Bath Bomb? After being helped by one of the store assistants ( who was amazing by the way! ), she showed me this bath bomb and recommended it. It was fairly new to the range at the time, visually it looked beautiful and very different compared to others being sold in the store. But seeing how this behaved in a bowl of water swung it for me and sealed the deal.
What is the Geode Bath Bomb? Geode is no ordinary looking bath bomb thanks to the addition of crystals. Designed to cleanse and purify the skin of the body, along with aiding relaxation of the mind and body, it also is supposed to provide a decadent bath time experience ( according to LUSH ).
Appearance. The top of it is almost flat, and has irregular, deep purple coloured small crystals embedded into it ( think the crystals are made from salt ). The bath bomb itself is not perfectly formed and circular from the top down. It has a handmade feel and look to it with slight lumps and bumps and not perfectly smoothed sides. Colour is almost a pale beige but glistens due to being covered with a light dusting of gold shimmer. Size is quite regular for a bath bomb if not slightly bigger.
Scent. No dominant scent to this bath bomb. I can get the tiniest hint of citrus but other than that I couldn’t give a description to what this smells like as I didn’t feel it had a scent as such.
In the bath. This is where the magic happened! This bath bomb bobbed and weaved through the water like it was swimming in the ocean. It fizzed, and at first you coud see it releasing an almost peach colour into the water along with a small amount of foam. This then turned into various streams of different colours such as pink and purple. Not only did this bomb now provide colour to the surface of the water, but underneath left trails of a gold shimmer, almost giving a liquid gold effect to it. So while this bath bomb continued with the visual show it also entertained me by providing audio, in the form of popping sounds thanks to it containing popping candy. Very different, fun to listen to and watch and made the fizzing of this even more special.
Once the fizzing and fun stopped… Never have I ever seen a rose gold coloured bath before. When I say bath of course I mean the water in the bath. It was so pretty, and it was a nice surprise to see that once bath time was over it wasn’t an issue cleaning up and everything washed away easily. And as for how my skin felt once pampering was over? Totally normal, not dry or irritated ( I have psoriasis, thankfully not a bad case though ).
Recommended? I’m glad I tried this bath bomb. To look at it its a lovely product and compared to others looks quite natural and earthy but with a touch of glamour thanks to the crystals. And how this behaved in the water and what it turned the bath water into was like watching a mini show which I loved. The thing that I did find disappointing was the lack of scent. It needed a stand out scent which was obvious ( not necessarily strong though but noticeable ) to match how great it looked and this would have provided an A Class bathing experience. So if you need fragrance in the bath, not one for you. But a pretty bath? Its worth trying out. For me though ideally I need the combination of the two to truly enjoy my 30 mins plus in the bath tub.
