Which Came First?

   There is an everlasting discussion that inspired this final LUSH Easter product review... Which Came First? Bath Bomb was previously released under the name Immaculate Eggception, and although the previous name was a bit more fitting (if you ask me) - it still packs a wonderful punch on all fronts and rules the LUSH Cosmetics displays with its extra large size.

"Eggs Benedict come-be-hatched!"
    Which Came First? is such a large bath bomb that it can easily be used for three baths... All I had to do was tap my bomb on the edge of my tub one good time and it broke in half rather easily. The yellow chick design inside can be popped out/cut out with a knife (please do not put yourself in harms way).
   When I picked up Which Came First? the vanilla absolute was the immediate fragrance that was noticeable, but as it lingered in the air, sharper citrus notes of grapefruit made themselves known... As the outer shell quickly dissolved in a flurry of bright pink, yellow, and blue, the inner yellow egg sunk to the bottom of the tub and took its time dissolving.
   As the yolk disappeared, the bath water began to look like something I should be dipping eggs into for Easter - SO PLEASING TO THE EYE! Once dissolved, my tub was full of brilliant pink-orange water... I noticed a small bead at the bottom of the tub and picked it up. At first I thought it was plastic, but it began slowly dissolving as I held it in my wet palm. It smelled strongly of citrus (almost tangerine, which makes sense for mixing lemon and grapefruit with vanilla), so I tossed it back in the water to finish dissolving. Did anyone else notice this little ball, or was it a happy accident?
   My skin wasn't left with much, if any, fragrance from the bath but this sweet combination is one I was okay with leaving in the tub... Not that it wasn't lovely, but I don't think it would compliment me much throughout the day like previous LUSH Easter scents. I was left a tad bit softer than before my bath though, and I always chalk that up as a plus!
   Once again, I need to make sure I get my hands on a few more of these before they're gone from the sites/shops... I give Which Came First? Bath Bomb a 4.5/5 for its gorgeous scent, multi-bath use, and absolutely gorgeous color display while fizzing about in the water. It is a product that embodies the decoration of Easter eggs!
   I hope you have a wonderful spring that is packed full of flowers, baths, and bike rides my darlings - and a Happy Easter to those that celebrate it.
