At the opening of the New Lush Store in Den Bosch, they launched 19 of the 54 new bath bombs from the Harajuku collection. Well, I’m not sure if I can call them completely new since some of them are old favourites. But let’s just say, it’s a brand new collection. One of the bath bombs I was dying to try from this collection is the Lucky Cat. I have seen demo’s on this one and it looked pretty cool. Aside from that it’s a cat and it’s pink and it’s also glittery, so it’s like a heaven in a bath bomb. So I bought it and the very same day I tried the whole thing in my bath. And in today’s post I’m reviewing it for you guys. So if you’re interested in finding out more about this cool Harajuku Lucky Cat Bath Bomb, keep on reading!
You might have noticed it already but the Lush Harajuku Lucky Cat Bath Bomb looks pretty dang cool. It’s shaped like a cat, it’s pink, it’s glittery and it reminds me of the little cat decorations at Chinese restaurants. All of that is pretty darn cool and made me want to try this little guy really bad. I have to say that I was more impressed by the looks of this bath bomb than I thought I would be when I saw it online for the very first time. I admit that I didn’t realise that it would be so glittery and so flippin’ cute. The glitter is definitely a big reason why I just couldn’t resist buying it. Part of it is also the fact that I really wanted to get some of these exclusive bath bombs, but who doesn’t?! I mean, it’s really cool.
One thing that did surprise me is the fact that this bath bomb did feel very light in my hand. I don’t really know why I feel that way, but it’s not as hefty as some of the other bath bombs from Lush. In size it’s definitely comparable. It might be a tad bit smaller but it won’t be a huge difference.
Anyway, the bath bomb looks cool. It looks adorable and it also smells really great. But more on the smell in a second. One thing I want to mention before going into details about the scent is the fact that I’m surprised by how affordable this bath bomb, and some of the other Harajuku bath bombs are. Compared to -for example- goddess, which retails at €7,50, this ain’t bad at all!

Okay, now we’re finally at the point where I’m going to discuss the scent. Bare with me because I can’t find these guys online just yet so I have to do it with my nose. And my cat is currently dissolved and down the drain since I used it already. Here we go.
According to my nose, this Lucky Cat Bath Bomb has a very balanced scent. It’s definitely floral with a hint of sweetness to it. In addition to that it also has something fresh to it like a fresh flower. But the main note in this scent is definitely floral. So if you’re a floral scent lover, this is definitely going to be up your alley. But in general I think this is a very loveable scent that will be liked by most of the people. It’s not very specific.
I wish I could say something about the ingredients right now, but because it’s not up on the Lush website just yet I can’t. What I have noticed is that it does make my skin feel nice and soft. It makes it feel hydrated yet clean. It’s definitely not like the hydrating layer in a bubbleroon, but as far as bath bombs can be hydrating, I’m definitely positive about this one.
Sorry for the ugly pictures
But then we get to the bath part and that’s where I got a little disappointed. Looking at this little cat you might expect something bright pink and wonderful. With magical glitter in your bath and everything is spectacular. But that wasn’t it. I’m not a girl that likes to use an entire bath bomb at once, but this time I did. And I’m glad because I don’t think I would have ever used the rest of it if I knew what it was going to look like.
The thing is that on the inside, this bath bomb is plain white. It’s only the outside that’s all pretty and pink. So when you put this Lucky Cat into your bath, the water will turn orange. It was so underwhelming for me to be honest. I was expecting bright pink colours and I was left with a weak orange tone.
Another thing that was quite underwhelming is the fact that this is a super quick fizzer. I was actually down to finally use my proper camera to take pictures of this bath bomb, but I had to hurry like a mo-fo and I still wasn’t on time. This thing dissolved in literally 20 seconds. The whole entire thing gone and it wasn’t spectacular at all. The only thing it left in my bath that could be considered spectacular are tiny little stars. But from a distance they look like pieces of dust so that wasn’t that cool either.
All in all I’m not that impressed by this Lush Harajuku Lucky Cat Bath Bomb. I really wanted to love it and I was incredibly excited about it, but I was definitely underwhelmed. The inside of the bath bomb being white was definitely a big set back for me. And I’m not a particularly big fan of the fact that this is such a quick fizzer. The only thing I do like about it is the fact that it smells really amazing. I would use it again for the scent, but considering the fact I have way more fun bath bombs and bubble bars in my collection, I’m not sure I’m ever going to buy the Lucky Cat again. Nope, it’s just not for me.
With that being said I’m ending today’s post. Thank you guys so much for reading my second ever bath bomb review and be sure to let me know what you think of the new Lush Harajuku collection and this Lucky Cat Bath Bomb!
