Back when I went to the opening of the new Lush store in Den Bosch, I bought a couple of the new Harajuku Bath Bombs. The first one I picked up is the Blackberry Bath Bomb. From the looks of it, it wasn’t too exciting to me. But when I gave it a sniff I fell in love. I had to have this bath bomb. It smells like heaven! So, that’s what I did. I bought it. And only last week I finally decided to pop this into my bath and see what it is like. Because of the amazing scent I did have very high hopes for this bath bomb, but lord knows if the scent is enough to make this bath bomb worth it. So, if you’re interested in finding out whether or not the Harajuku Blackberry Bath Bomb is a bust or a must, make sure you continue reading this post!
The Lush Blackberry Bath Bomb is blue and shaped like a blackberry. It looks absolutely adorable to me. When I looked at it in real life, all I could notice about this bath bomb is the fact that it’s blue and it has a bubbly look. But when I look at it on the pictures I realise that it does have purple specks all over it. Now, you can think that’s just because of the camera or the editting. But once you’ll see the in-the-tub pictures, you’ll realise that those purple specks are actual purple specks and nothing less than that.
In size I do think it’s pretty decent. It’s not the biggest bath bomb in the whole wide world, but it’s definitely not tiny either. It’s very decent. It’s not super heavy, but well. Size doesn’t matter right?! And weight doesn’t either.
Like all Lush bath bombs, the Blackberry bath bomb is naked. This means that it comes without a packaging. If you’re a Lushie, this is basic to you. But if you look at bath bombs from other brands, like Rituals, you’ll notice that it’s actually super unique. The Rituals bath bomb I reviewed recently came with a ton of packaging and plastic. What a waste!
The Blackberry Bath Bomb from Lush has a very unique and pleasant scent. If I had to describe it in my own words, I’d say it’s a soft scent that reminds me of a mixture of fresh linnen and a touch of fruitiness. Because it’s called blackberry you might expect a very berry-like scent, but I didn’t notice that so much to be honest. In my opinion this is one of the best scents Lush has even come out with. I love it a ton. Even if I didn’t like anything else about this bath bomb, I’d buy it again just for the scent.
Aside from smelling really nice, the Blackberry Bath Bomb is supposed to be hydrating and leave your skin feeling nice and soft. I have to admit that I didn’t expect it to live up to this claim, but it did. The bath water actually turned very soft and my skin felt so smooth and nourished when I got out of the bath.
In terms of effects I have to say the Blackberry Bath Bomb surprised me quite a bit. I don’t know why, but I expected this to be a proper long fizzer, and it wasn’t. This is actually one of those bath bombs that’s completely fizzed out after less than a minute. The water turns purple, but it’s not very opaque purple. If you forget to move the bath bomb through the water while it’s still fizzing, the purple will stay on the side where the bath bomb was fizzing. It’s not that bad, but I did have higher hopes for it. And by the way, it did stain my bath a tiny little bit. Nothing too extreme, but it did.
All in all I do think that the Harajuku Blackberry Bath Bomb is the bomb dot comb in terms of scent. I mean, this scent is heavenly. It also does leave your skin feeling really nice and hydrated and I love the purple bath water. The only thing I don’t love about this bath bomb, is the fact that it’s a quick fizzer. But considering the fact that it smells so good, I can forgive it for that.
With that being said, it’s time to end today’s post. Thank you guys so much for reading today’s review and be sure to let me know which Harajuku bath bomb is your favourite!
