The fizzing, the bath-room consuming scent, the swirl of rainbow colours – there’s no denying the excitement a Lush bath bomb frothing around in your tub can bring.
Whether you want to treat yourself to a little pre-Christmas relaxation or splash out (excuse the pun!) on a gift for a loved one, we’ve rounded up the Lush bath bombs that make for the most indulgent additions to any bathroom...
Lush Bath Bombs that are great gifts
One for the Lush bath bomb fan who wants to try something new, their Amazeballs are bath bombs with a twist. Instead of dropping it all straight into the bath, pop the stopper off, and sprinkle out its contents before popping in the rest. The water is left honey coloured with a soothing scent of ylang ylang whilst sweet almond essential oil leaves skin feeling nourished. You won’t want the bath to end!
You’d be forgiven for thinking this cute bar might smell sugary sweet, but thanks to a mix of bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils, it’s surprisingly fresh. Perfect for cold winter days when you need a little pick-me-up. Hold it under warm running water to unleash plenty of cloud-like bubbles before popping it on the side to dry, ready for your next bath.
Kids and adults alike will love this adorable Lush bath bomb. Cosy and warming, it’s like a hug in a tub, with a scent much more grown-up than it first appears. Lie back and let warming black pepper oil, cinnamon and clove warm your senses whilst rich date syrup softens your skin. Just be careful who you buy this for – you don’t want them to think you’ve got the hump!
Christmas is the season for second helpings and bath bomb fans will go mad for this super-sized version. Instead of finding a coin to bring you luck in the middle of this Christmas pudding, the centre of this pud is filled with big chunks of sea salt, ideal for a mineral-rich, detoxifying soak. Split it up over a few baths or use it all at once. Go on – you deserve it!
This is one of Lush’s best-selling bombs all year round, because who doesn’t want to feel like a goddess? The ultimate bath bomb for a little me time, the scent of heady jasmine and warming sandalwood stays on your skin long after you’ve left the bath. Skin feels super soft too, meaning you can skip moisturiser.
The perfect stocking filler for little ones, this bubble bar has a touch of panto about it. Swirl the wand into warm water to turn your water sparkly, bubble-gum pink with a mountain of bubbles. Use up all of the sugary scent in one go or dry it on the side to use again next time.
Don’t let the demure white and gold fool you, this Lush bath bomb froths and fizzes into a vibrant turquouse blue via a rainbow of shades as soon it comes into contact with water. Cognac oil gives the scent a festive feel whilst orange oil keeps it fresh. Thanks to the touch of shimmer, it’s the perfect pre-party treat.
Not strictly a bath bomb, we just couldn’t leave this gorgeous solid oil off the list. There’s no fizz to speak of, but the skin-loving cocoa butter and deliciously spicy scent more than make up for it. Hang it from your tap (or your tree) and simply break a little off at a time or swish the whole thing in your bath until fully melted. Just be sure to keep it in a cool place to stop it melting before it reaches your tub.
