Review │ Space Girl bath bomb by Lush




Today's post is a review on the Space Girl bath bomb by Lush. 

When lush first brought out their bath bomb space girl, I was more than egar to try it. After I seen a few people online posting about it, showing off it's elegant planet design (it reminds me of a planet with its ring around it, although some of my friends say a flying saucer) and it's beautiful colours, it really made me want to storm into the lush store and pick up about 10 of them, and now that is has been discontinued I feel like this review is a tad bitter sweet. It's a chance for me to show case it's beautiful design and how amazing it makes the water look as well as saying goodbye to a much loved bath bomb. 


I first saw the bath bomb in person when I whet into the lush store on sauchiehall street so that I could treat myself to a few new bath bombs, I saw Space Girl sitting in the window, pride of place looking very cute and sparkly as there is some glitter on it and knew I just had to have it. 

I was very impressed with this bath bomb on first impressions, not only was it very pretty with it's colours and glitter sprinkled over it, it smelled really nice as well. I can't quite put my finger on the smell but it reminds me of something from my childhood. When I smell this bath bomb it completely takes me back to a time where life was much simpler and I only worried about getting money for the ice cream van. As a child I would smell this scent any time I bought jelly sweets from the van and being able to smell that scent once again has truly made me happy because I am a sucker for anything that makes me nostalgic. The scent is very bold and you can smell it while holding it down around your waist which is pretty good considering I have had a few bath bombs from lush that you have to hold close to your nose to smell it. If you like the scent of blackberry then this bath bomb is the one for you as it has a slight hint of it although I do feel it smells a little more floral at times. 

This documentation of the use Space Girl, is not my first time using the bath bomb. I have used different combinations of products to create a "cocktail" and this one I done is by far my favourite I have tried with space girl, you will see why by the pictures. 


Once in the water this bath bomb fizzes away, creating beautiful colours in the water and I noticed that it looked even better because I had used the Karma Bubble bar while running the bath and that makes the water all purple, so the reaction of all the colours clashing with each other creates water that is just so beautiful, that it reminds me of the Galaxy. I was very impressed with this combination of products to say the least and I will be doing it again with my othe space girl bath bomb I have in my Lush box. 



The bath bomb moves around the bath, fizzing away giving off a lot of white that goes great with the purple and red in the water. As the bath bomb is fizzing away the smell seems to just get that bit stronger which I am very pleased at since I have read some reviews that say the smell isn't as noticeable when in the water, but I definitely didn't find that to be the case at all. 


I absolutely love this bath bomb and that's probably why it's one of my favourites. One this that has made me sad about this is that you can no longer get it as Lush had to make way for some new products and in the process decided to discontinue Space Girl along with some other products such as Granny Takes A Dip. 

Because you can no longer buy these bath bombs I made sure to stock up on them while the last of the stock was available to buy. I bought my remaing bath bombs from Lush Buchanan street. 

All In all this bath bomb really gets me excited about bath time. I just adore the smell of it and how the smell sticks to my skin for a bit afterwards. I would tell you to run out and buy some so you could experience it for yourself but unfortunately I can't. If this little beauty ever comes up in the Lush Kitchen I'll be snapping a few up. Everything from the look to the scent pleases me with this one. So if you ever get the chance to get yourself one of these, I suggest you do so. 




So what do lush say? "With blasts of sparkles and refreshing grapefruit oil, Space Girl is a Bath Bomb of astronomical proportions. You’ll be ready to explore the cosmos (bath time) in a trail of purple stardust. We put real popping candies into each one to add some pop to our signature fizz. Shaped like Saturn, the energizing scent of blackcurrant candies will make you hungry for your own space adventures as you soak away in the tub. It’s really out of this world."

  2. I've never tried a bath bomb, but I did try the shower ones when they had them in stock years ago. They had one for hangovers that was amazing! Wish they still stocked them... either way, I love Lush. I'll have to wait and see if they get this bath bomb back in stock some day!
