Yoga Bomb

   Take it slow.
   Don't you love when something that seems so simple surprises you? Well, that is exactly what Yoga Bomb bath bomb embodies... Not only is there a beautiful surprise below it's bright orange exterior, but this bath bomb's scent is quite unexpected as well!

"Take a journey of the self as reassuringly soothing sandalwood oil creates a sanctuary of calm in your bath."

   My first impression of Yoga Bomb was that it's scent was unique. Slightly sweet but still clean while in solid form, I'm sure due to the sandalwood which usually brings soothing notes and sweetness to a product... When fully dissolved, this bomb leaves behind water that is a beautifully saturated amber color with lustre floating about. The scent changes to gently sweet and fruity notes - ho wood oil adding relaxing floral notes and cassie absolute is comfortingly sweet.
   Fizzing slow, and creating a soft white noise sound, Yoga Bomb lives up to it's stress-free hype... There was a bit of disappointment for me with the colors of my particular bomb though! As shown above, and in other reviews/demos, this product releases a surprise of green, blue, and purple that fan into the water. My bomb seemed to barely have any of this surprise inside it, to the point it didn't fan out in the slightest.
   When I turned on the tub's jets, shockingly, a good amount of creamy bubbles formed; I was sort of baffled. I did use some FUN the day before, but made sure to thoroughly clean the tub after... I contacted the LUSH Cosmetics' costumer service Twitter, and was informed that the cream of tartar was the culprit! Which is now completely obvious, since something similar has happened to me in the past.
   The lustre didn't stick to my skin nearly as much as it usually does, even with the amount released from this bath bomb... And although there was no residue left around the tub, when the water fully drained there was a ton of lustre stuck to the bottom of the tub. All it took was a bit of water washed over it to go down the drain, but keep that in mind when purchasing.

   Even with the color output not being as prominent as what I've seen in other reviews, I still give Yoga Bomb bath bomb a 4/5! It truly is a lovely and relaxing slow fizzer, and I've already got plans to order more now that they're available outside of LUSH Oxford Street.
