I’m a big fan of a relaxing bath, and there’s nothing quite so relaxing as when you’ve got music playing in the background and luxurious scents from a bath bomb floating up to you.
Lush is one of my favourite places to get a bath bomb – or just any kind of of luxurious experience really – so when I saw the display for one of their latest bath bombs #TBH365 I knew I had to try it.
The gorgeous vegan product comes in the shape of a book and has a soothing vanilla scent.
As someone who loves vanilla based scents, I was thrilled.
The warm shades made my bath unfold in luxurious bliss and the glitter was a very welcome addition.
Not only its the bath bomb shaped like my very favourite thing (books are something I’m happy to talk about for days on end) but it’s for a very good cause.
100% of the proceeds (minus VAT) of the vanilla scented product will be donated to The Black Curriculum, which is striving to change the British education system to be more representative of the population.
The social enterprise is aiming to put Black British history on the national curriculum with a ‘full picture of British history, including Black people’s contribution to the nation and not just via narratives that centre slavery.’
As someone who likes to shop and indulge in products made for pampering, I was thrilled to see this brand give back to the community and strive to help improve education in the UK.
When looking back on my history education in school it focused quite heavily on the history of medicine, Germany and there was a small portion of time spent on the slave trade which will forever be ingrained in my memory as I remember my entire class turning to face me when it was mentioned.
I know I’m not alone in the experience of the not so subtle head turn, in fact when being told about the new bath bomb others shared similar experiences they’ve been through.

Looking back on my own education, I’m sure it would have been a positive experience to have learned about Black British history in a more positive light at school rather than having to search for it outside of lessons.
I’ll definitely be buying more of these bath bombs in future as they smell amazing and I can feel good knowing that all proceeds are going to a good cause.
You can get your own #TBH365 bath bomb here or at your nearest Lush store.
