One of the Lush Harajuku bath bombs I was most attracted to the very first time I saw it was Figaro Figaro. A tiny little uniquely shaped bath bomb with a really pretty colour palette. To top that all off it was one of the more affordable bath bombs from the launch as well. So of course I bought it and about a week ago I finally gave it a try. Not trying to spoil anything or whatever, but I flippin’ loved it. In today’s post I’m going to review it and let you guys know everything about it. If you’re interested in finding out more about the adorable Figaro Figaro bath bomb from the Lush Harajuku launch, make sure you continue reading this post!
Okay, so first things first lets discuss the look of the Lush Harajuku Figaro Figaro Bath Bomb. In terms of shape I like to compare it to the shape of a union. A small one at that, but it does remind me of a union. Luckily it doesn’t look or smell like that. I mean, I like the smell of unions, but not in my tub. Or is that just me?
Anyway, the thing I instantly loved about the look of the Figaro Figaro Bath Bomb is how colourful it is. The outside is yellow, purple and it also has a bit of green to it. The colours look so pretty and satisfying together. And for some reason the way this bath bomb looks makes me think it’s going to smell amazing too. I don’t know how my brain associates this colour palette with a good smell, but it does.
The Figaro Figaro Bath Bomb is a little bit smaller than the usual bath bomb. Therefore it’s also cheaper. On the other hand: it’s not boring. Most cheaper bath bombs from Lush are very simple, but Figaro Figaro isn’t. More on that later though.
On the Lush website they tell us the following about the Figaro Figaro Bath Bomb:
Change your tune with a bath bomb built for crooners. Laden with soothing natural ingredients, Figaro will strike a (vocal) chord and leave you shouting “encore”. A herbal quartet of peppermint, sage, thyme and eucalyptus oil release aromatic steam, helping you to find your voice again. Step out ready to take centre stage.”
It almost sounds like the perfect bath bomb for a speech therapist (which I am), but I don’t think it did so much for my vocal cords to be honest. Anyway, I do appreciate how Lush always puts in the effort to describe their products in a very unique and playful way. It sounds like a nice product to me.
The scent of Figaro Figaro also speaks to me. I like the fact that there are minty, fresh fragrances in here but there’s also something fruity to the scent. It’s a really unique and also really nice combination. It’s definitely a scent I haven’t smelled before. In terms of strength I think this scent is absolutely perfect. Throughout the entire bath I was able to smell it and that’s exactly what it should be like.
What you don’t know if you look at Figaro Figaro on the outside, is how amazing it will look once you pop it into your tub. I didn’t expect too much of it considering the price and the way it looks. I mean, I expected the colours that you can see on the outside to come out of this bath bomb. But I was totally wrong about that. In fact, Figaro Figaro blew my away with its beautiful bath art. Once I popped it into the tub, purple started bursting out of all sides of the bath bomb. The yellow was slowly releasing itself too and this created something magical.
The Figaro Figaro bath bomb does take its time to dissolve, but it’s not a too slow fizzer. I think it took about five minutes for it to complete dissolve. That’s mainly because this isn’t the biggest bath bomb in the entire world. But what I like about it is that it’s not one of those bath bombs that’s gone in the blink of an eye.
Once Figaro Figaro is done fizzing the bath looks amazing. The water gets a deep orange colour and on top of the water are lots of milky swirls. These swirls are white but also have some yellow mixed into it. It looks really special and definitely very pretty.
All in all Figaro Figaro really surprised me. I knew it was an adorable looking bath bomb, but I just didn’t want to expect too much of it since it’s such an affordable bath bomb. But in the end it was definitely amazing. The bath art looked stunning, the scent was totally up my alley and I loved every second of bathing in this bath bomb. I’m so sad the Harajuku bath bombs are leaving, but if I ever go to Japan I’ll definitely pick this up again!
With that being said I think it’s time to end today’s post. Thank you guys so darn much for reading it and be sure to let me know which bath bomb was your absolute favourite from the Lush Harajuku launch!
