Review: Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb
Good morning! Today I have another review and demonstration of one of Lush’s main bath bombs. Intergalactic doesn’t only have a cool name, also its appearance is very pretty. And in the tub? It’s like floating through space, amongst the stars. At least, that’s what Lush says. I decided to step into my rocketship and put this beautiful aesthetically bath bomb to the test. If you’re curious, keep on reading!

Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb costs £4.75 / $7.95 and is part of the regular range. This pretty boy has an average size and its appearance is too gorgeous! I mean, look at all those colors, and those glitters. If it would smell like horse shit, I’d still buy it. Fortunately for us the scent is a bit better than that — it’s heavenly, one of Lush’s best scents. It’s a fresh scent because of the peppermint, but also sweet and fruit because of the grapefruit. There’s also a strong woody note because of the cedarwood and vertivert. That’s quite a few different layers, but believe me, in its whole it’s an amazing scent. Very unique and warm, it’s a typical Lush scent.
Other than these oils, it also contains popping candy for an out of this world experience, and glitters for a starlike bath. This should be fun!
What do I think?
I am starstruck! Intergalactic transforms the water into a gorgeous, vibrant blue shade. It’s rocketing streams of fluorescent-pink and yellow swirls across the surface, the silver lustre is like floating in interstellar space. The bath art is hands down the prettiest EVER. The popping candy makes the performance even better.
The scent is unworldly — it’s fresh but also smoky, it’s quite an interesting combination. But leave it to Lush to successfully pull this off. Whilst your bathing in your own made galaxy, the oils soften the bathwater and leave your skin feel soft and supple throughout the day. It really gave my mood a boost, and the scent was even noticeable long after I exited the bath. The bit of glitter residue afterwards would be the only downside to this bath bomb.
It’s an out of this world experience, creating your own galaxy in the tub. I definitely recommend this invigorating bath bomb, I’m very glad that it’s part of the main collection. Get in your rocketship and fly over the your local Lush store, and stock up on these babies. That’s what I’m going to do!
