Unless you have been living under a rock, you would probably have heard about Lush’s reputation for their huge array of bath bombs. What are bath bombs? In a nutshell, they’re a ball that fizzes up when you put it in water, releasing fragrances and soap that you can bathe in. The reason why bath bombs have become such a huge thing in recent times, however, is because of how amazing and almost therapeutic it is to watch all the different colours fizz and mix in the water. It’s also thanks to companies like Lush, who are constantly pushing out newer, better, and more amazing bath bombs every day.
If you are new to Lush and bath bombs, fret not! This is a list of the 12 best bath bombs that Lush has to offer for a relaxing, spa-like bath experience.
