Blackberry Bomb

4 out of 5 rating See my 1 minute tub demo video below

This is a remake of a discontinued but very long running bath bomb.

It was actually made and sold before Lush was called Lush, back when they were a company called ‘Cosmetics To Go’. Back tgen it was wrapped in black and hsd a fuse hanging out, making it look just like a tiny TNT bomb.

Recently, in December 2018 Lush uk (who own Lush Japan) opened a new Lush concept store in the Harajuku area of Japan.

In this store Lush are making 35+ new bath bombs exclusive to this store. However, Lush Uk has offered 11 of them to anyone who can regularly order from their online retail site at lush.co.uk including us here in the USA. Blackberry Bomb is one of these 11 exclusive, limited time bath bombs.

I stock up on this bomb. It would be perfect if it was a slower fizzing bomb with glitter and a bit more multi-colored bath art. Nitpickiness on my part. That’s the only reason this isn’t a 5.

Blackberry bomb has a fruity scent. It smells berryish; hence the name Blackberry.

It doesnt have blackberry in it. It does have bergamot and frankincense in it. In addition to smelling fruity It also smells perfume-y. That’s from the frankincense. i like frankincense because it reminds me of christmas incense.

Gotta love that purple water.

Here is a photo ive taken with allthe Lush products made throughout the years with the same scent.

2006 Lush Times description: The Blackberry Bath Bomb has a deliciously fruity scent, seasoned with a smattering of frankincense, traditionally used to relieve nervous tension, calm stress and to help you cut ties with the past. Bergamot essential oil is said to inspire confidence and relieve depression. Why not use one to blast all the negativity, whish is topping you from getting out there and getting on with it? Use our happy blackberry bombs in the morning to blow away sad thoughts and launch you into a bright new day full of unlimited potential. It’s the season to pick one.

Cosmetics To Go (Lush before they were called Lush)

Sept 1, 2015

I won a trip to Lush Headquarters in Poole, England last year at this same time.

It was a magical trip, a dream come true.  And I recorded a lot of video for you all.

I’m building this page, organizing all my cosmetics to go product photos that i’ve taken throughout the years.  I will also have scans of the Cosmetics To Go catalogs here. 🙂 I’m building a list of Cosmetics To Go products from their Catalogs, with product photos, background  and ingredients info.

I still have an array of items from Lush founders’ previous company “Cosmetics To Go” (CTG), inwhich i’ve made a video of.  This is the video that won the Lush contest and which led to a Lushie dream come true.  I’ve collected them throughout the years.

Many years ago the owners of Lush were kind of enough to send me all of his original press Cosmetic To Go catalogs, dating from 1993-1996,   still wrapped in their original sealed plastic packages.

The products they made were To Die.  If you think Lush is great you should see these!

In the meantime, enjoy this video below. 🙂

Here is my (signed by the author Mira Manga) copy of the book, available now at Lush stores near you and online at lush.co.uk or lush.com
