A few days ago, I made the decision to buy a Lush Bath Bomb. Having seen them online and in shops, I had never thought about buying one; until now. As of recently, I have started to have an interest in bath bombs especially the colours and scents they produce. Having heard wonderful reviews from the ones they sell at Lush, I decided to go there.
Before I talk about the bath bomb itself, I want to talk about the store. The stores, in particular, the one I went to, smell gorgeous. The ability to grow round, picking up anything you like and being able to smell it is so amazing. The staff as well are, a little over friendly. I was approached three times within five minutes and they kept asking whether I needed any help. Just let me choose, please I wanted to say.
I chose the Intergalactic Bath Bomb which is one of their most expensive bath bombs. Coming in at £4.25 or in the USA $7.75, I was worried that I was wasting my money. You could probably buy the ingredients for less but who has time for that?
If you don’t know how to use a bath bomb, it is very simple. First, make sure you use your bath bomb as close to the purchase date as possible. This makes the bath bomb more effective in terms of scent, fizz, therapeutic benefits and colour. Then, grab your bath bomb and hold it half way in the water. When it starts to fizz and colour the water, let go of it gently. This will make your bath bomb react more.
My first impressions of the overall appearance were that I thought it was beautifully executed. I loved the main blue colour with yellow and pink dashes teasing you of the colour the water may turn. It really suited the galaxy theme well and it smelt gorgeous. Placing it in the water, I was a little disappointed. My bath bomb compared to the ones I had seen online turned the water a blue colour but there was just not enough variation in colour. When the bath bomb had been reacting for around five minutes, there was some added colour however, there was still not enough.
Peppermint Oil in this bath bomb is definitely the dominant scent. The minty, refreshing scent of it really transports you to another place. It gives it a fresh, clean, minty scent that lasts for ages on the skin. I think I could also smell the Cedarwood Oil but not the Grapefruit Oil. The scents are very strong so do beware if you don’t like smells that last. When the bath bomb had completely gone, there was little chunks of the bath bomb left at the bottom. Although it was not annoying, it was just a pain to clean.
I spent around half an hour in the bath. Whilst in the bath, I noticed the glitter that was originally inside the bath bomb. I found this addition made it seem more galactic and out of this world. After my bath, my skin felt soft and very smooth though I felt a little bit sticky as well.
Lush describe this bath bomb on their website like this: 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 cedarwood 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.
In conclusion, I think next time I go to Lush I am going to buy a different bath bomb that has more colours than the Intergalactic. Seeing as this was my first ever bath bomb, I didn’t know what to expect but as I have had one, I know now what to expect.
Again, this was another post that I am trialling so if you would like to see product reviews and trials in the future please let me know.
