Review: Lush Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb

Text size: bigger / smaller

The Easter collection by Lush has arrived, and it couldn’t be more colorful and cheerful! I immediately had my eye on this cute bath bomb. There’s two bunny ears sticking out of the bath bomb, and who knows what other surprises this bath bomb may hold! I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to try it in the tub.

If you’re curious about this bath bomb, then keep on reading.

Lush Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb costs £4.95 / $6.95 and is part of the Easter range. This bath bomb is shaped like a magician’s hat, with two paper bunny ears protruding. I love these designs, it’s so cute with the paper — just like Rudolph and Not So Secret Santa. Magic Rabbit is a fairly big bath bomb, also quite heavy. It’s like there’s an actual bunny inside! It’s new to the Easter range and as far as I know, there are no other products with this scent.

This bath bomb smells sweet and slightly fruity, but with a hint of citrus. It’s a pretty standard scent, not one you would remember after smelling multiple scents in a Lush store. When I look at the ingredients, it makes sense what I smell: Davana oil smells of apricots, tonka is sweet and vanilla-like and lemon myrtle oil gives the overall scent a fresh, zesty touch. It’s not a scent to go wild about, it’s a pretty simple ‘sweet’ scent. It’s good, but not very special or striking.

What do I think?

Magic Rabbit spews out streams of purple foam — thick froth with purple swishes, followed later by red/pink froth. The purple coming off the bath bomb colors the water gradually a gorgeous opaque dark purple shade, almost ink blue. The hat keeps floating on the surface for about 10 minutes, and keeps spewing out purple and pink foam in all directions. A thin, white and frothy layer appears on the surface, decorated with some pink and purple specks and swirls here and there. It looks beautiful, I just can’t stop taking photos! In terms of bath art this is really a great bath bomb. Eventually I can see two bunny ears float on the surface, with its cute, small bunny face revealed. I do advise you to toss it away immediately, otherwise the paper gets soft and ‘crumbles’ in the water, which looks really gross.

The end water is amazing! I think the photos speak for themselves. There’s no glitter in this bath bomb — which I definitely wouldn’t mind if there were, cause I’m a ho for glitters. There is popping candy inside though, but I didn’t hear it at all. I do get why this bath bomb is called Magic Rabbit — it’s magical. I had crushed the last bit of the bath bomb (because I was too impatient to wait for it to completely dissolve), which stained my hand blue. But no panic; after bathing most of it was washed off. The tub itself had some black staining on the bottom and at the rim, but a towel removed all of it after some wiping. No Black Rose drama.

I really loved this bath bomb! It’s unfortunate that I could’t detect the scent while bathing, but the bath art and water definitely made up for that. I would buy this bath bomb again if I got the chance. And you should too!

Lush Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb costs £4.95 (England) / $6.95 (USA).
