Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb

This wonderful little bath bomb may be my favourite product from the Halloween range which I admit has shocked me. With all the hype that surrounds Lord of Misrule and how much people harp on about it, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did as I assumed it would be like the Halloween version of Snow Fairy.

I was drawn in by Lord of Misrule whilst looking at the ingredients list online, as it was described as a ‘mischievous bomb that features a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil.’ With one of my favourite Lush scents Karma also including Patchouli in its ingredients list I decided to give this bath bomb the benefit of the doubt and added one to my online order.

I wont lie, when it first arrived I was a little disappointed by how Lord of Misrule looked. Just this moss-green coloured bath bomb with a few speckles of pink dotted about. However, knowing not to judge a book by its cover, I popped this bath bomb into the tub one night and was bowled over by its spectacular bath art and the show it puts on.

As soon as it touched the water it started slowly frothing away its green outer layer, before rolling around in the bath. After a few moments pink tones start to appear and at this point I could smell both the patchouli and black pepper fragrance escaping into the air. It was after this that the bath bomb becomes truly iconic in my opinion andΒ I will admit nothing prepared me for the beautiful magenta pink colour Lord of Misrule spews out or the sound of popping candy crackling away in the background, like a witches cauldron bubbling over creating the best bath art I have ever seen from a bath product to date.

The water ended up going a wonderful crimson red colour with a faint silver lustre. Also, the spicy, warm scent hung around for a long time, and clung to my skin for quite a while after leaving the bath.

Now the important part. Would I buy this bath bomb again. Hell Yes. After my experience with it I can now say that I 100% understand why this bath bomb is a cult favourite due to both the way it performs in the water and for how wonderful the fragrance is. This is going to be one of the few bath bombs I will be stocking up on this season and allowing myself to stash away to use throughout the year.
