Yesterday was my birthday so I pampered myself by taking the best bath in the world: Lush Mermaid. It’s like diving into an Aurora Borealis spectacle.
I’m not referring to the newly released Lush Mermaid bath bomb. What I mean is a bath cocktail of two Lush products that for years has been unofficially known as the Mermaid. It looks like golden northern lights: rays of gold glitter and sparkle swirling in deep jade water. The glitter looks like a school of microscopic fish and it’s constantly moving. It’s the prettiest bath in the world!
For the Lush Mermaid you need two Lush products: the Big Blue (an amazing bath bomb and a reference to a great movie) and the Sunnyside. The Big Blue smells of sea and salt. No wonder since salt and seaweeds are the main ingredients of this bomb. The salt softens your skin and helps it release toxins. The Sunnyside is a bubble bar scented with citrus oils. It has sweet wild orange oil, lemon and tangerine oils. And glitter. Tons of glitter. It’s a good ‘pick-me-up’ after a long day. The glitter tends to get everywhere and you are likely to find bits of it in your closet, in your bed and in your bag for the next couple of days. It will make you smile. Hopefully.
To make the Mermaid Bath you will first need to fill your bathtub with hot water. Place the Big Blue in the bathtub and let it melt. Crush the Sunnyside and gently add it to the bath. If you stir the water too much or forget to crush the bubble bar it will create bubbles. It won’t spoil the effect but it will make it more difficult to see the water. And trust me: it’s quite a sight.
Apart from looking stunning the Mermaid really softens your skin. When you’re done admiring the view remember to give your skin a good rub and make sure you exfoliate to get the most of your bath.
