Blackberry

   Let this bath bomb bring you back down to earth...
   Blackberry bath bomb is one of the first bath bombs that LUSH Cosmetics invented, back in 1989 in Mo Constantine's garden shed laboratory... Earthy and uplifting, Blackberry is one of LUSH's ultimate crowd pleasers.

"A purple, fruity fizzer for a burst of cheeriness."
   To be honest, I have no idea why I never tried this bath bomb before a few months ago. I've been venturing on my lushie journey since 2010, and I've definitely been missing out...
   The scent of Blackberry is beautifully earthy and sweet thanks to frankincense (also known as olibanum), which brings rich woody notes, and the refreshing citrus of bergamot. The lovely scent lingered on my skin well into my day, creating tons of compliments given to me... As the bath water becomes an inviting shade of indigo, look out for the booming surprise inside!
   Something that was a bit interesting, not particularly positive, to me was that once this bomb was completely dissolved there was visible oil on the surface (shown below). This created an instant ring around my bathtub that was very similar to that of the bath oils - but luckily there were no stains left behind, and cleaning up the ring just took a bit of rubbing with a wet washcloth... With that being said, Blackberry left my skin feeling very soft, and I could have easily shaved my legs while in the tub thanks to the gentle oils on my skin.
   I feel quite silly for waiting so long to try Blackberry bath bomb, and it is now a regular in my stash! I give this fizzer a 3.5/5, because even though the oil creates cleanup, I love the scent and softness it provides... Head to your local shop or LUSH online to grab yourself one of these bombs today!
