LUSH the Experimenter bath bomb


The Experimenter bath bomb was an Oxford street exclusive, which is when I bought this. But now the Experimenter as well as other Oxford street exclusives are now available in store as well as online! I wished I had used mine while it was an exclusive but I am happy more people can get hold of this wonderful bath bomb!


There was a lot of hype surrounding the Experimenter bath bomb when the Oxford street exclusives were announced. When I went to Oxford street it had nearly sold out! Its hexagonal prism shape and different colours made it very popular amongst buyers. It has 5 colours, pink, blue, white, orange and a purple centre. 

I will be honest I did not buy it for the smell. It has an unusual smell, I can only describe it as smoky and earthy, which if you know me, is not the smell I usually go for! But I can honestly say this smells better in the bath, it is far less pungent and you do get more of the lighter vanilla tones coming through. 

Putting this in the bath I was expecting big things and I was not disappointed, the pink, blue, white and yellow all dissolved a little in small pulses before it predominantly became the pink and blue that was creating beautiful swirls in my bath. I have said before and I will keep saying that I love bath bombs with popping candy in! I love the bubbles it creates!


The bath bomb on its own flipped over and the white and orange began to create some beautiful patterns. I loved the purple waited until the end and was a beautiful lilac colour along with the white mixed into it. Throughout the bath bomb there is gold glitter which I personally love but this will leave a mess in the bath afterwards!


From what I have seen, there are no ingredients that really nourish the skin, my skin felt pretty much the same as it usually does after a bath, apart from glittery. The Experimenter cost me £3.75 when I bought this in Oxford street but I have heard it now costs £3.95. This is more expensive then most of their bath bombs, but this is bigger in size and it lasts a long time.


The worst thing about this bath bomb is the aftermath. You have this spectacular show, and once you swirl the colours in the water, you are left with this murky grey bath. Being honest it looks horrible but it is honestly fine to bathe in!


I loved this bath bomb, I am not sure if I will repurchase it as there are so many other products I want to try first and I would prefer to buy another Intergalactic bath bomb as I loved the smell of it. I think anyone who loves LUSH should try this, do not be put off by the strong smell nor the price! My bath bomb lasted more than five minutes, which is a long time for a bath bomb! Have you used the Experimenter? If not would you try this bath bomb?

    1. I was unsure whether to mention it or not, but I wanted to be completely honest, I did enjoy it but I would prefer brighter colours after 30 minutes, not grey! xx

    1. It is a shame, but suppose all of those bright colours don't really mix too well together! x

  4. Ohh that's so pretty! I love the shape and the colours of it as it goes into the bath...honestly, if the initial colours or bubbles are spectacular enough, I never really mind if it turns colourless at the end of the bath! x

  7. Numerous clients will search for natural bombs or shower bombs that are made with 100% regular fixings as these will be caring to the skin and shouldn't bring about any bothering even to delicate skins.ring bath bombs
