Review: Dragons Egg LUSH Bathbomb

LUSH is one of my favourite shops for bath products. They are against animal cruelty in a big way and always actively participate in various animal rights campaigns. The majority of their products are Vegan but the ones that aren't are most certainly Vegetarian Society approved. You can pick up one of their guide books in-store to find out more about each product if you are unsure. They normally display a Vegan or Vegetarian logo at the end of each product description which may also be the case in-store with their signs.

'Dragons egg' was described to me as "a party in a bath" by one of LUSH's extremely helpful sales assistants. Unfortunately, when using it in my bath the other day I was left a little disappointed. I suppose I was expecting something dramatic to happen but as soon as I had dropped it into my bath all it did was froth. It frothed until I got bored watching it so I therefore gave it a helping hand by swishing it around the water. The first layer uncovered a couple of confetti pieces but livened up a little when it hit the second layer releasing some popping candy.

Once I finally got into the bath, I waded through the white and orange froth covering the surface to reveal the golden glittery water underneath (probably the only thing that impressed me about this bath bomb). There was a subtle citricy sherbet smell but it was nothing to go crazy over and I can't say it did a great deal for my skin (well not that I noticed anyway). when the water had drained from the bath there was a noticeable tide mark of glitter covering it but a quick scrub is all that was needed.

All in all I thought that 'Dragons egg' dubbed the 'multilayered spectacle' may have been a little over-rated. I didn't hate it but it wasn't amazing. By all means, try it for yourself and let me know what you think about it. 'Dragons egg' is a Vegan product priced £3.25 in LUSH stores.
