Lush Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb Review

This is a Lush bath bomb I really didn't have a clue about before picking one up from the Oxford Street store in May. I love a good bath bomb and to be honest I tend to stick to the same ones, I really have my favourites so I have to be super intrigued or impressed to try a new one. George actually spotted this one and because of it's ingredients that are supposed to help uplift and relax you, I thought I'd give it a go. I just want to say the picture below really doesn't do it justice! It's actually a really bright yellow but the photo just hasn't come out that way.
This is the first bath bomb I've had in a while where I've ended up having really mixed feelings about it. Usually I love everything about each one I try but with this, some things were amazing and others weren't so this review will probably be a different to my others but I want to be honest about it.

I'm going to start with the things I did love about it. First of all I think it's such a pretty bath bomb, I love the bright yellow colour of it and as I've already said, the picture above doesn't show how nice it actually is in real life. It's quite a small bath bomb so a little bit cheaper than a lot of the others available at Lush which is good as they can be pricey sometimes. The smell of it is incredible, it's such a refreshing and zingy scent as it contains Lemon Myrtle Oil, Lime Oil and Neroli and it made, not only my skin smell lovely, but also the whole bathroom! Something I do really like about it, is that it's a really good one for uplifting you and the shop assistant actually told George this is a brilliant one for people with anxiety and depression. They've picked specific ingredients that can help relax you and I found with this, I did feel really good afterwards. I like bath bombs like this where there is clearly more to it than just what it looks like in the water. That being said though, that is the thing that disappointed me about this. Normally I love putting a bath bomb into the water and watching it fizz away and seeing all of the different colours emerge but with this, nothing really happened. Within seconds, and I mean seconds, it had all fizzed away and there was no chance to really see any other colours, before I knew it all of the water was yellow and there was just a load of floating bits around the water. So because of that I couldn't really get any good pictures of it but I still wanted to review it, I think it's important to write about the things that aren't quite as amazing as others sometimes. I think maybe I expected a lot from this because it's the same colour as the Yellow Submarine Bath Bomb which I absolutely loved!
I just feel really mixed about it, I'd definitely say it was more positive than negative but for those who love a bath bomb to Instagram, this isn't really the one for you. For those who struggle to switch off or struggle with anxiety, then I think this could be good for you, there is just something about it that is so uplifting and if you're not really interested in the water going a load of different colours then this should be a good one for you. This is £2.95 which as I've mentioned, is one of their cheaper bath bombs so it might be a good one if you're new to Lush and aren't sure what to splash out on.

I'd love to know if you've tried this bath bomb and what you thought? What's your favourite Lush product?
