Back in 2014 Lush released two bath bombs Nothern Lights and Sparkler. They were both prone to breaking quite easily due to their elongated and thinner design. This year they rereleased Northern Lights with a more durable design.
I didn't try the original so I had to take the opportunity to try the improved version, as it would be a totally new experience and I've seen how amazing it is in the water.
As soon as it hits the water it starts foaming up with thick bubbles of blue, purple and yellow. Before eventually making way for an array of other colours, which really do remind me of the Nothern Lights. Right now, it's the closest thing I've gotten to seeing them.
It really puts on a show in the water so it's something you'll want to watch. It froths up in the water quite quickly but it ends up being a slow fizzer. There was even a small piece fizzing away when I got out of the bath, after soaking for quite a while.
Its scent is one that I don't usually gravitate towards but it shares the same fragrance as the Christmas Eve Bubble Bar. Jasmine absolute is the one that first hits you with a delicate floral scent. It is said to help relieve stress and elevate your mood which can help get rid of any winter blues. There's also ylang-ylang oil which gives an even more florally scent but isn't at all overpowering. The scent was strong enough to be able to smell it in my bathroom long after I'd bathed, as well as still smelling it on my skin for a few hours afterwards.
When it's dissolved and the water is mixed together you're left with green water, that manages to look almost pink in places. It's very strange but in a good way.
If you've not tried anything from Lush before (where have you been?!) I feel like this is a good starting point.
