Originally an Oxford street store exclusive, guardian of the forest is now avalible online and in selected stores. When I first visited the flash ship Oxford street store, I didn’t actually pick one of these bath bombs up, as I was determined that I wouldn’t like the scent even though I had never actually given it a sniff. On my second visit I decided to give the Guadian of the forest bath bomb a little bit of my time and actually pick one up to have a look. This is when I realised how magical this bath bomb is!
It is possibly one of the most intraucute and beautiful designed bath bombs that I have ever seen in a lush store.
Boasting two different shades of green, the guardians of the forest is then apply cover in tiny little leaves. I just wanted to put this on a shelf and keep it there so I could display it’s incredible design.
So I eventually decided to give the bath bomb a sniff and wow it wasn’t what I was expecting ! To say I’m the kind of girl who normally goes for sweet vanilla scents or sharp citrusy scents, I was completely won over by the guardians of the forest. It is very much an earthy smell but I was worried it was going to be a very ‘manly’ scent, it isn’t at all. Containing ingredients such as rosewood oil and oak moss absolute it has a very fragrant almost sweet note to it.
Once put into the water the guardian of the forest bath bomb fizzes away creating a layer of the most magical green coloured foam I have ever seen. It is quite a slow dissolving bath bomb, but I felt this made it very relaxing, as I watched the two shades of green entwine to create a mystical and magical lagoon. I really wish I could put into words how stunning the colour of the water is but I just can’t find the words to describe it.
Overall I’m very impressed with this bath bomb especially because I didn’t think I would like it. The scent stays on the skin for ages making you feel like a forest fairy and the show it puts on in the water is just magical! I will defiantly be stocking up on a few of these.
