Lush Metamorphosis Bath Bomb!

26th July 2017
Hey everyone!
Jake and I were out having a browse recently and popped into Lush as i said he could pick a few things he wanted for his birthday, this was a bit of a bad move as I try to stay away from Lush recently due to lack of funds and the amount things I’m just so persuaded to buy. But of course I came across something that I really liked and seeing as it was only ONE thing, I got talked into treating myself (by myself…shh).
That one thing was the “Metamorphosis” bath bomb, as you can probably tell from my blog logo I’m a bit of a sucker for dark, gothicy things and the look and smell of this definitely tickled my gothic bath bomb fantasies. It’s a medium grey colour covered in dark grey glitter and looks just like a meateor which I thought was a pretty fabulous design, the only thing is that I’m one of those people that has an odd aversion to things having continuous holes in them so I can’t look at it for too long without it giving me the creeps.
The smell of Metamorphosis reminds me of Christmas as it’s got some quite strong cinnamon undertones which I absolutely LOVE. Mixed with black pepper it’s a super perfect one for you if you’re not into all the super sweet marshmallow-y ones that Lush sell, Jake also picked one of these to try as one of his little birthday treats so i’d also say it’d be a really nice gift for a man who likes a pamper or a soak in the bath. Its a very warm and spicy scent and also contains Myrrh which is a natural anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory – a good one for detoxing.
First putting it into the bath, it turned the water a charcoal colour and left a sparkly layer on top, the spicy scent it released was really lovely and quite captivating making me think it would be fabulous made into a candle. It carried on like this for a good minute or so before bursting into colour releasing green and pink for a while and then orange and yellow, which I thought was a really cool and unexpected addition to the bath bomb. The colours didn’t stay around for long though and the bath water just sort of ended up a mouldy grey colour with the glitter disappearing too.
I didn’t really feel like it left much moisture on my skin after I got out either which is one thing I really look forward to when using a bath bomb and it also seemed to leave an odd, grey stain down one of my legs which took a minute or so to scrub off afterwards with my towel. I was pretty disappointed with this bath bomb to be honest, as nice as the smell and the look of it is, it didn’t live up to the usual experience and therefore expectation I have from Lush products. The aroma was definite the highlight of the bath bomb and I’ll definitely be looking for more subtle and spicy products to use in the future as I’m usually a big sucker for sweetness.
I was hoping it might’ve been a new favourite for me but the “Dragons Egg” bath bomb is still in reigning power!
What are your favourite bath products from Lush? If you’ve tried Metamorphosis, were you expecting more from it?
’Til next time,

    Oh my, this is stunning! Such a shame it didn’t work out!

  4. I rarely buy anything from Lush, but when I have I’ve loved it. Dragons Egg sounds cool!

    I recently bought their new jelly bath bombs that are supposed to be moisturising so you should check those out! I love the way this bomb looks, it’s a shame it’s not as great as their others though!

  6. Covet Luxe says:

    The colours bursting out looks amazing! Shame this was a disappointment, I would’ve thought the colour wouldn’t end up a dull one. Maybe this isn’t one that’ll stay on my wishlist, thanks for the honest review x

    Mate i so wish i could use bathbombs but they make my vagina so angry. Cinnamon and black pepper sounds amazing!

  9. WOW! This bath bomb is right down my street, i’m not quite girly enough for the bright pink, marshmellow and all things sweet smelling bombs so this would be amazing! I don’t know why but I really love subtle hints of black pepper mixed with sweet things so i’m going to lush this weekend to buy this! Thanks! Shan | xx

    • I will literally take anything other than Lavender to put in the bath, I’m such a sucker for any bath products!! But yeah the spicy ones are often the ones I tend to remember as they’re a bit more rare 🙂 Xx

  10. I live for these posts of yours! Bath bombs are my weakness! I love your encouragement! This one sounds gorgeous with the cinnamon! xo

  11. Awww I’m sorry this was so disappointing as it looked so cool! I love the extra little burst of colour! I’m not a huge bath bomb fan.. I hate sitting in the bath just chilling! Lol

    OK, so I have a hard time with Lush products because I used to eat shaving cream as a kid…….And I know that’s been 20 years, but I’m afraid I will just be sitting in the bath, running a marshmallow melt under the water and my childhood self will be like ” come on, what’s one little bite? Remember the shaving cream?

  17. luxblush says:

    I can’t look at this bath bomb for too long either, as the holes just creep me out haha! I love the sound of the scent of this, but I’m really not sure about the colour!xx

  18. Lush bath bombs are my absolute favourites. This wouldn’t be one I would normally pick up from the shelves by the look of it but i love the colours it leaves in your bath x

  19. Alice says:

    I love the Blackberry bath bomb but I’ve heard it’s being discontinued along with The Comforter, I’m so mad! Can’t help but still love Lush though x

  20. Veronica Bizzarri says:

    Such a shame you were disappointed with this bath bomb! I love the sound of the scent it has as I’m really not into the very overly flower scents, the swirl of colour in the grey is a nice surprise.. sucks you had to scrub the colour off your skin xx

      Yeah it is a shame, the smell is the best thing about it! Just was a bit underwhelming compared to lush standards! Xx
