Black Pearl Bath Bomb by Lush

I used to be a pretty big fan of Lush, until I discovered fantasybath.com, run by cloverbee. Still, I had an opportunity to visit a Lush store this weekend, and I picked up a few things, mostly things which I had read descriptions of online, but wasn't sure I'd like the scent. This one smelled really good, especially once it was in my bath. One of my favorite things about bath bombs is that the next time you use your towel, it smells really good, and this bomb delivered on that. Unfortunately, by virtue of being black, it makes your bathwater look like very murky laundry water, which is gross. Although this didn't happen this time, one time when I used another murky bath bomb, my husband walked into the bathroom, saw me soaking in some grey water, and said 'ew.' Not an ideal reaction, and now I'm sensitive about what my bathwater looks like. This bomb also has way too much glitter. I'm not a fan of glitter in my bath bombs. I probably won't buy it again, but if you don't mind yucky-looking water and glitter, go for it, cuz the smell is nice.
