Another week, another Lush review and I’ve been really excited to review this one since I first used it months ago. This used to be an Oxford Street exclusive, but like some of the most recent products I’ve been reviewing, this one is now a permanent member of the Lush family. Something I was really happy about, because now I can buy these as often, and at the plenty as my heart wants. I am of course talking about Intergalactic Bath Bomb, my new favourite, and also the first bath bomb I’ll be reviewing by Lush. Exciting times!
I just want to quickly add how there are two different baths in the images as I took some pictures of my usage of this both at home, as well as at my boyfriends.
I have heard nothing but praise and love for this bath bomb and when I finally got to try it, I could see why. It really is something unique from Lush and in turn, like nothing they’ve ever released before, both in scent and the way it works in the bath.
I love this bath bomb so much that I’m on my second one of it after already using up my first, the one I also bought from the Oxford Street store in July. Bath bombs last me a lot longer than they probably do for a lot of people, as due to the ingredient that causes the bath bombs to fizz in the water, it causes an allergic reaction on my skin if I come into contact with a lot of it. So if I divide my bath bombs into halves, and quarters then I can get away with it without getting an allergic rash, yay! However, with Intergalactic I can get away with using half without any worries, which I’m really happy about. But even with a quarter this bath bomb works just as well, but I’ll go more into that soon.
But onto how pretty this bath bomb is… Pretty is such a bad word for this, I think stunning, and breathtaking do the job just fine, don’t you say so? This is probably one of the prettiest bath bombs I’ve ever seen Lush create. It reminded me of the Christmas limited edition, Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb when I first saw it, but alas it is nothing like that. The colour of the bath bomb is the colour it turns the bath water into, a gorgeous dark blue shade. It also has some pink and yellow colours around the middle of it, which don’t really show up in the bath… But I may have this issue due to not using a whole bath bomb. This is also said to contain popping candy, but once again I’ve never seen this myself.
Intergalactic contains peppermint oil, grapefruit oil, vetivert oil, and cedarwood oil. The peppermint oil is what stands out the most in this bath bomb to me and in turn gives it a fresh, clean, minty scent that lasts for ages on the skin, as well as in the bathroom after use.
It reminds me of toothpaste, or chewing gum. Unlike most menthol scents, this bath bomb doesn’t cause you to have a cooling sensation on the skin, which is something I was really worried about. I’m a huge fan of mint scents, but I hate the cooling feeling they leave behind, a discussion I had with two friends of mine whilst on a long weekend away with them (hello Becky and Dave!).
This is probably the darkest bath bomb I have ever used to be honest, and I love it! When popped into the bath it leaves behind a beautiful dark blue shade, something that can even be made possible from a quarter of a bath bomb, which is really good in my eyes. A flaw of only being able to use such a small amount means that I don’t get the same bold and gorgeous colours that everyone else gains from using a whole bomb. So this one has really made me happy.
As well as the beautiful colour, this is also packed full of shimmer. I am one of those who hates glittery baths, I hate how it sticks all over the skin and leaves me looking like something from the 80’s. However, Intergalactic doesn’t do this. I mean, it does leave a little shimmer behind but nothing heavy, just the odd twinkle here and there. It also leaves the gorgeous minty scent behind, something my mom noticed when I first used this, twinkles too. Of course it left me feeling lovely and soft, which is always a must have after using a bath bomb.
Due to the shimmer, it does leave it behind in the bath when it’s finished draining, but it’s nothing a quick go around with the shower won’t get rid of.
I honestly don’t know what else to say about this bath bomb other than how much I adore it. It’s definitely fast turned into my favourite, and I really do hope it sticks around for good and not just for summer… Or I may cry… A lot! Each time I come close to finishing one of these off, I’ll pick up another. I don’t think I can live without this bath bomb in my life now, as it really is a treat for me, and for £3.95 each, it doesn’t hurt!
Do you like the sound of Intergalactic? If you haven’t tried it yet, are you looking to? Hey, you may have already tried it, if so what do you think? Make sure to let me know your views on it in the comments.
Until next time however, take care all and have a great weekend!
