The Definitive Ranking Of Lush Bath Bombs

They're the bomb.

Posted on

Let me just get started by saying Lush did not sponsor this post. Additionally, I haven't tried every Lush bath bomb ever, so these are just the ones that I have tried. That being said, here are my personal opinions on a majority of Lush's bath bombs.

25. Sakura

I didn't expect much color from a white bath bomb, and I was still disappointed. Although the smell was lovely, the bath bomb itself sunk to the bottom of the bath and fizzed white bubbles. No color, no excitement, just a small amount of bubbles. I ended up using another bath bomb in the water because this one was so much of a failure. I'm sure some people like it, but for me, there just wasn't enough excitement.

Colors in bath: ✮✮☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ 2/10

Scent: ✮✮✮✮✮☆☆☆☆☆ 5/10

Overall experience: ✮✮✮✮☆☆☆☆☆☆ 4/10

24. Blackberry

I bought this bath bomb because I love blackberries and the scent of them is heavenly. I also love the color purple, so I thought this would make my bath look amazing. However, the purple color itself was dull and somewhat faded. The scent was nice, but overall, this bath bomb didn't give me a reason to buy it again.

23. Cinders

This bath bomb is a little smaller than the majority of the others, so I was hoping that what it lacked in size, it made up with in colors. This bath bomb wasn't terrible, it just wasn't that fun. The color it left my bath was pretty dull, and I honestly can't remember much about the rest of the experience. I'd just skip buying it if I were you.

22. Dashing Santa

Let me just say that the bath bomb itself is sooo cute. However, there wasn't really anything exciting about it other than that.

21. Father Christmas

Another Santa-themed bath bomb that is super cute, but rather disappointing. I did like the smell of this one a little better, but it was pale pink and green, and the colors didn't really look nice together. I know I'm being super picky, but this one just wasn't my favorite.

20. Yoga Bomb

This is one of Lush's more expensive bath bombs, being priced at $8.95. I expected a little more for the heavy price, and even though it left the bath a beautiful orange color, I don't think it was worth nine bucks. It also smelled kinda weird, but that's just a personal preference. The picture of the bath bomb in the water is actually one I took, so... enjoy?

19. Honey Bee

This bath bomb smelled amazing. It has this beautiful honey smell to it, and it is definitely one of the better smelling bath bombs. However, it left my skin feeling stickier than most bath bombs do, so I wasn't that impressed.

18. Lord of Misrule

Lush releases this one around Halloween every year, but with it's pink and green coloring, I feel like it's better for Christmas. This bath bomb smells really great, and it's cool looking, too. However, like I mentioned with the Father Christmas review, I don't think pink and green look great together in the bath once they mix, so that's why this one doesn't make it that high up on my list.

17. Ickle Baby Bot

This bath bomb is meant for kids, so it has lavender and chamomile to induce sleep. It's also shaped like a robot, which is super cute. Nothing bad to say about this one, it's just not my absolute favorite.

16. Space Girl

This was the first bath bomb I ever tried. I had heard so much about this one before I bought it, and I was so excited. I love outer space, so I thought this would be perfect for me. The bath bomb itself is very cute, a purple Saturn-like shape with red glitter. However, the purple color was dull and it didn't leave my bath as sparkly as some of the other bath bombs on this list. It wasn't particularly bad, it just didn't live up to the hype.

*Note: Lush no longer makes this bath bomb.

15. Granny Takes a Dip

I was so excited for this bath bomb because of it's beautiful colors. It smells citrus-y too, which is a fun addition. However, when the bomb itself is in the water, the colors clash with each other and create a murky, brown-ish color at times. I know that's something small to complain about, but I was expecting more from such a fun-colored bath bomb.

14. Luxury Lush Pud

This bath bomb is like the cheap alternative to the Experimenter (which you'll see later on this list). The colors were pretty, but like Granny Takes a Dip, they turned a slightly brown-ish color after a while.

13. Shoot for the Stars

This bath bomb was really cute in appearance, so I guess I expected more from it. It was really pretty though, so I'd recommend it.

12. Guardian of the Forest

This is one of Lush's newer bath bombs, and it's so pretty. It leaves the water a sort of radioactive-looking green, and it looks so cool. However, the scent wasn't my favorite (their website says the "calming cypress and mystical oakmoss"). Still, I'd buy it again just for the cool colors.

11. Avobath

This bath bomb is so cute. That's all I can say. It smells like fruit loops and leaves the bath a beautiful minty green. I love this one so much, I really do recommend it.

10. Pink

Via LushUSA.com

This one was cheap ($4.95), so I wasn't expecting much. It left the water a lovely shade of pink, smelled like candy, and released tiny little hearts into the bath. What a pleasant surprise!

9. The Experimenter

This bath bomb is the definition of hype that does not deliver. The colors were so pretty, but it was $8.95. It also dissolved really quickly, so I felt like it didn't last as long as it should have.

8. Dragon's Egg

This one is mostly white, so I wasn't expecting much. There was popping candy inside, and the colors inside the bomb itself were a pleasant surprise. I love this one! Smells amazing, too (their website describes it as "refreshing sherbet-y citrus scent of lemon and bergamot").

7. Sex Bomb

I had heard so much hype about this bath bomb that by the time I used it, I was expecting more. The bath bomb itself is nicely crafted, and the rose petals are a nice touch. But they felt kinda slimy in the tub, which kinda creeped my out if one happened to touch my leg. But that's really nit-picky. I really liked this bath bomb, but just wished there was more.

6. Twilight

Like sex bomb, I had heard so much about twilight before I used it that it kind of ruined the experience. The scent was wonderful, the bath bomb itself was cute, and it was a nice little bath. I was just expecting more. But it was really pretty.

5. Big Blue

I absolutely loved the color that this bath bomb made my water. The scent was pleasant, and I actually really liked the seaweed. Only downside was that it clogged my drain and was a mess to clean.

4. Fizzbanger

This is the most underrated bath bomb I have experienced so far. It's yellow, so I assumed it'd make my water look like urine, and so I avoided buying it until recently. Once in the water, it really does fizz and go crazy. It has popping candy in it, so it makes little "bang" noises every now and then. The yellow color fades into blue and turns the water a bright green, which looked really cool. The smell was also heavenly, and the whole bath experience was a nice surprise.

3. Phoenix Rising

This bath bomb smells so strongly of cinnamon, so it'll certainly help if you're not feeling well. The bath bomb itself was really pretty, and it left the water sparkly. The bomb itself sunk to the bottom of the bath about halfway through dissolving and then rose to the top again, like an actual phoenix. It was really cool, and I have no idea how Lush manages to make a product this incredible. It is well worth the price.

2. Yog Nog

This has by far my favorite bath bomb scent. There's also a soap with the same scent under the same name, and they smell like the perfect blend of eggnog and cinnamon. When I got out of the bath, my skin felt so smooth, and the whole bathroom smelled like Christmas. I love this bath bomb so much! There's even a little surprise in the middle that I won't spoil, so I guess you'll have to buy it to find out.

Oh my god. This was really a pleasant surprise. The colors this bath bomb left behind were beautiful. It was sparkly, there were little gold stars.. wow, it was amazing. Please go buy this one right now!
