Aah Lush, why can’t I get enough of you? In all fairness I had been good and have avoided buying Lush for a few months now, but then I received this beauty “Golden Wonder” as a Christmas present and it makes me want to buy more! Inside were two bath bombs, one called Golden Wonder and the other Star Dust. It made me feel heavenly just looking at the label.
There wasn’t really much of a description for the Golden Wonder bath bomb, but the Star Dust is a “soothing vanilla mixed with fragrant rosewood”. I had very high expectations for both of them – especially the Golden Wonder – and I accidentally managed to get some gold glitter on my camera, oops.
I tried out Star Dust first as I was really intrigued by the soothing vanilla – especially as my skin has been really dry from the weather & heating – and in terms of “wow”, it was quite disappointing. I think it’s because I usually have high expectations of Lush bath bombs and thought that it would suddenly burst into bright colours, but it was all over with a few star “confetti” left behind. It was, however, soothing, and I felt that I was having a very milky bath. So if you’re looking for something soothing instead of very flashy then this is absolutely perfect. I would definitely buy it if I was just going for a relaxing bath.
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb
It started off just white and gold and suddenly it burst into colour. Soon there were pinks and blues and it was glorious! Unfortunately I have discovered that I am awful at taking bath photos (sorry) so the images did turn out quite blurry. Thank goodness for Photoshop. I was also surprised that I wasn’t as sparkly as I thought I would be, seeing as there was quite a bit of shimmer from the gold but least I didn’t look too glittery afterwards.
Have you tried these two before? I think my favourite has to be the Golden Wonder, but I think overall I still love the Lush’s Intergalactic bath bomb. I’m tempted to buy some more but I’ve been holding myself back – I’m going to use up all of my bath goodies before buying anything else, but if you have any recommendations then please let me know!
Until next Sunday ♡
