Bubbles: Lush Space Girl Bath Bomb

24 July 2012


So I think we've established by now that I absolutely adore the comforter from Lush, and anything else bergamot scented. However, I'm trying to branch out, so I purchased this (alongside the comforter) because basically it has glitter. To my horror however when I looked up the ingredients in this after *randomly* selecting it in store, this has bergamot oil in it. I just can't get away from it...

The smell of this reminded me of sherbert dib dab's that I used to have as a child - actually had to google what that was! Basically its just really sweet and took me back to 1994 - that's probably the 'fizzy candy' ingredient they've put in it, whatever that is! On the picture on the Lush website this has loads of glitter, but in real life its barely there, and I didn't notice it at all in the bath so if you have a phobia of glittery skin don't be put off, but if your skin is really sensitive I'd avoid this.

This turns the bath quite a deep purpley blue colour - I almost felt like the water looked a bit mucky, until I realised they were going for a night sky colour. The fragrance isn't as long lasting as other bath bombs I've tried, but it still made the room smell absolutely delicious for a while! The fizz was standard Lush - it lasted for a decent amount of time, but there was no 'boom boom' in the middle :( my skin did feel a little more dry than usual after using, but that could've had something to do with falling asleep in the bath haha.

I probably would repurchase space girl because its good fun, but it still hasn't stolen the crown from my beloved comforter (or the similar scented blueberry bath bomb). What's your favourite Lush product? Have you tried space girl?

  1. I haven't tried this yet but I love the comforter! I am a fan of the glittery jobbys though so I imagine I'd like this! I had a christmas set with golden wonder in it, and when it fizzed little stars came out, It was the best bath ever! haha

    great post!

  3. I have started to really love the smell of Bergamot recently. I went in a steam room at a spa recently which had the kind of bergamot/earl grey scent about it and it left a beautiful scent on my skin. Since then I've been looking for products that have it in. What other Bergamot products do you use?

    Thanks for your comment on my blog by the way, really glad I found your blog & am now following :)

  7. Cute shape! I have not bought or used a bath bomb in so long (as I usually take showers), but it sounds like Lush make some really lovely ones. I need to take a closer look at their products :)

  8. My favourite Lush products are the ballistics, but i can't quite remember the name of my favourite. I could buy them over and over again though.

  10. Mmmmm I love Lush! I like to try different bath bombs when I'm at home (haven't tried this one yet) but unfortunately at uni we only have a shower, so most of the year I'm deprived! x

  13. I have a lot of love for Lush products. A lot of love. I've not been in so long however. I really liked the Twilight bath ballistic (for calming me down after a hectic day, it worked wonders) and I'm also a massive fan of the Comforter. Who can deny those bubbles?! I also used to use their henna :)
