LUSH Golden Wonder

LUSH Golden Wonder

 The first of my Lush Christmas posts, Golden Wonder bath bomb. Those of you who know me will know I’m not usually one for a bath bomb, they’re messy , expensive, contribute little to my bathing experience and the baby calls them cakes and tries to eat them.. it’s not good. That being said I decided to jump on the band wagon this year and try some of their more festive offerings.


 First of all before this hits the water it gets golden shimmer EVERYWHERE so that’s alreay a mark against it and I’m dreading getting in the bath with it. The gold actually disperses quickly when it stars to fizz but gives gorgeous golden foam before it does. This is probably one of the most fun to watch ‘unfold’ as it’s full of pockets of colour you’re not expecting. The citrus scent was nice but not overpowering and  it was pretty to look at and the water was ocean blue by the end.


It’s one of the more exciting ballistics because it’s huge and when you shake the ‘present’ you can here a rattling inside begging the question.. what IS that? It’s definitely more of an experience than your regular bath bomb but uktimately it’s colour and a bit of a zesty scent which for me isn’t all that. I’d get this again for my 8 year old because she loved watching it evolve but I’ll stick to my nourishing butterball for now.. I’m prepared to be dazzled by another of the Christmas editions yet but I’m not holding out much hope – any suggestions?

    I love this bath bomb 🙂 it had golden stars in the blue last year but they all dissolved in the bath, I didn’t find it hard to clean at all! xx

    YES Get shoot for the stars. You can easily cut it in 2 for 2 baths as well, so it’s actually more affordable than butterball that way (it’s 180 grams, butterball is 80 I think and in snowman version is 90g, which means cutting Shoot for the Stars in half is still as much bath bomb and ends up being cheaper too!)

    I do wonder about Lush. I love the idea of the store, natural ingredient, ethically sound etc. I always avoided the shop till recently, as the stink of the bath bombs sets off my asthma. Plus I don’t have a bath (wheelchair accessible shower), and Lush is kind of known for its bath bombs. The sales assistant when I went in was thrilled to some across a Lush ‘virgin’ and sent me home with loads of samples, which I am yet to try. What is your opinion of the other Lush products?

    Love Vicky x

    I love bath bombs but I completely agree, they don’t actually add anything to my bathing experience. I just think I become a kid again and love it dissolving!!

    I’ve long left Lush in favour of Bomb Cosmetics. If only for the look of their products, very sweet, girly and gorgeous, compared to the more rustic approach from Lush. I also feel that the BC bath things are waaaay more moisturising than their Lush counterparts, though I admit less scented. Just my opinion though lol!

    I cannot wait to be back home and have an actually bath – LUSH will get a battering 😉 xx

    I used the snowman tonight and it was gorgeous 🙂 the guy in lush said that it is pretty much the same as the normal butter ball so if you like that one you will probably like the snowman and it’s one of the most reasonably priced 🙂 xx
