Welcome to the first review to be featured in my ‘Lush Reviews‘ category! The Intergalactic bath bomb was truly like a trip to space and I am so excited to tell you how amazing it was. If you read my February Favourites 2017 post you would have heard a little about how much I loved this bath bomb. Keep reading for an in-depth review complete with images for you. Thought I should also mention none of the pictures are mine and they were sourced on Google Images. First up, a quick snapshot of the product with information from Lush’s Website;
Cost & Weight – the bath bomb costs AU $8.95 and weighs 225 grams.
Shape & Colour – in a traditional sphere shape, the bath bomb is blue with pink, white and yellow stripes swirled around it giving a marble-like effect.
Ingredients – Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Popping Candy, Perfume, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Peppermint Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Vetivert Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Limonene, Linalool, Snowflake, Lemon Ice and Gold Glimmer Lustre, Colour 42090 and Colour 45410
Scent – peppermint, cedar wood (sweet and woody) and vetivert (grassy and earthy).
Colour When Used – after the colours have swirled around and fully dissolved, the bath water settles into a midnight blue colour with fine gold glitter.
Mood Set – enticing then relaxing.
Here’s how lush advertises the bath bomb;
“Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedar wood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.”
I personally loved this bath bomb solely because of the colours and gold glitter. I felt like I was floating in space when the water turned midnight blue and glimpses of gold glitter could be seen shining in the light. The smell was pleasant but I didn’t pick up the notes of mint and sweet wood like the lush website advertised. Instead, the scent wasn’t really standout or unique but much like other bath bombs or just generally how the store smells.
Pros of this product include the colours (in the sphere and the end result) as well as the beautiful glittery surprise.
A con is that the scent isn’t anything special and quite low-key compared to other products although it is relaxing and does set the mood. Another con is the cleanup and your entire bath being covered in gold glitter. Luckily, after a wipe down and rinse with cold water, most of the glitter easily comes off. Still all completely worth the interstellar experience.
Overall, I just loved how I wasn’t expecting the bath bomb to do what it did. It was unique and significantly different to their other bath products meaning I will remember it. I’m all for Lush’s little surprises and can’t wait for many more to come.
Rating – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 , the scent could have been better (I personally like sweet scents so this could be why I was underwhelmed).
I hope you enjoyed this kick start to my ‘Lush Reviews‘ category and are looking forward to reading more posts similar to this one.
