I bought Vanilla Fountain, a bath bomb from Lush, a while ago, but I only used it yesterday. My expectations were quite high, because Lush promises a 'comforting' bath and a lovely vanilla smell, partially due to the vanilla pod stuck into the bath bomb. To use a bath bomb, you fill your bath, and once it has filled you step into it with your bath bomb. When I put Vanilla Fountain into the bath it started fizzing, like a bath bomb is meant to. But I am wondering why Lush called it Vanilla Fountain because it looks nothing like a fountain. After a few minutes, all that was left of it was a yellow colour in my bath water and a vanilla fragrance. This fragrance stayed after I had the bath, but it did not last more than an hour or so. Also, after emptying the bath, some yellow residue was left on the sides of the tub, so make sure you clean your bath properly after using this bath bomb, or you might end up with a yellow instead of a white bath.
Personally, I only occasionaly buy bath bombs. I think they are a bit of a waste of money, because they are gone after a few minutes and often their smell does not last long either. To be honest, Vanilla Fountain has not made my high expectations come true. The smell was nice, but not amazing. The bath also did not do much for my skin, it was not much softer than it normally is. Therefore, I don't think I will buy this bath bomb again.
Vanilla Fountain costs 5,15 euros.
- It smells good
- The vanilla pod inside makes it look attractive
- Smell does not last very long
- It is quite expensive for one bath- It does not do much for your skin
Buy it or not?
I would not buy this bath bomb again, but that is because I generally do not really like bath bombs. If you are a fan of bath bombs, you could always give this one a try, because you might like it more than I do.
