Review: Lush Tengri Bath Bomb
Recently Lush launched 7 new bath bombs, which were already available in the Harajuku store in Japan. Last year I had already reviewed three of those (Flight, Roar and Temple in the Skies) but Tengri also piqued my interest. It has an interesting shape and I’m a sucker for sky blue colored baths, so it was inevitable that I would buy it. Today I’m reviewing this beaut!
If you’re curious about this bath bomb, then keep on reading.

Lush Tengri Bath Bomb costs £5.95 / €7.50 and is part of the main range. (I expect it to come to NA soon!) It’s a huge bath bomb, the blue swirls across the bath bomb make it look bigger. Apparently it’s supposed to be a snake.. I don’t see it though 😂. Either way, it’s an interesting looking bath bomb. The scent is very good — the lemon myrtle is actually the first thing I can smell, with a hint of eucalyptus in the background. The notes of lavender and violet make the overall scent a bit more floral, ensuring there’s a perfect balance between fresh and floral. It’s an uplifting scent, I imagine it would be great on a hot summer day.
What do I think?
When I drop Tengri in the water, it immediately releases a white foam that’s covering the surface. It starts spinning through the water, releasing streams of sky blue foam. Such a pretty shade! After a few minutes the water turns a shade of light blue, with still a white layer on the surface. Suddenly the bath bomb breaks open and starts spurting out purple swirls, revealing its purple core. I love surprise colors that are hidden inside! The scent of lemon myrtle and lavender were definitely present in the bathroom and made me feel very relaxed. The end water was a lighter shade of blue than I hoped it to be, I would’ve loved a more brighter color. When I got into the tub, it was kind of a dull color, almost clear. Somehow this never motivates me to stay in the tub for very long.
Although I loved Tengri’s performance, I wasn’t blown away by the end result. I really like the scent and the bath bomb’s colors, but I don’t think it’s worth the money. Lush has more impressive bath bombs priced at £5.95, like Blazin’ Bad Zula. If you’re not bothered by the dull end water and you’re looking for a relaxing bath bomb, sure, give it a go. But I think Twilight bath bomb is perhaps a cheaper option — only £3.95.
