My First Lush Bath Bombs!


Hey lovelies, Happy Easter!
If you have read much of my blog lately, it's clear to see I'm currently going through a slight (more than slight) obsession with Lush and my most recent purchases, which I had never tried before, were a few of their bath bombs or 'bath ballistics'. I spent a pretty long time in the shop, as I always do, sniffing everything to see which items I like the best and I ended up with these four!


Fluffy Egg - (Part of the Easter collection) I bought this one because I loved the smell of it in the shop and it doesn't disappoint once dissolved into your bathwater either and leaves it a pretty vibrant pink colour. I've since gone back to Lush and picked up a couple more of these because I'm expecting them to be gone pretty soon and love them!


Space Girl - For some reason this one has never really appealed to me but I liked the smell of it and so ended up with it in my basket. Apparently it contains popping candy but had I not read that on the description, I would never have known. Space Girl leaves your bath a purple/pink colour but most importantly it leaves it smelling amazing - I didn't want to use any other bath products in case they masked the smell of it! I also found this one to be one of the more stronger/long lasting smelling bath bombs that I've tried so far.


Secret Garden - While I think this is one of the prettier bath bombs that Lush do (in general appearance and in the way it looks whilst dissolving), I was pretty disappointed. Mine just didn't seem to end up quite as pretty in my bath water as what I have seen in pictures over on Instagram, it also ended up under the running water, so I had to push it out of the way which messed up any pretty-ness that it had made. When I first put this one in, the water just looked dirty but after a while it ended up being quite a deep green colour and it left little flower petals floating about. I expected them to clog the plug or for me to have to wash them all away but they did flow easily away with the rest of the water. The biggest disappointment though was that there was NO smell at all once I put this one into my bath.. So this one was a waste of money for me!



Sakura - I wasn't expecting too much colour wise from this one as after I had bought it I saw other people say it doesn't really change the colour of your water - which it doesn't. Sakura has the same scent as their Rub Rub Rub scrub, which was pretty strongly scented and I could smell it on my skin after I got out. So scent wise, this one is good but colour wise it doesn't do anything!


Do you call them bath bombs or bath ballistics? Which are your favourites from Lush?

  2. I've still got Fluffy Egg sitting in my bathroom waiting to be used! Lush is addictive, you can't just come out with one thing, it always turns into a small haul! xx

  5. I like Lush bath bombs but personally I prefer their bubble bars as I like plenty of bubbles in my bath! My favourite bath bomb is Twilight, it's great for using during an evening bath as it contains lavender which is quite soothing. xo

  7. Space girl is one of my favourite items from Lush, that smell is too nice. <3
    That's disappointing that Secret Garden had no scent at all though, I can understand why you'd be disappointed in that.

  8. I love love love Lush! I've tried Sakura before and loved it - and didn't know it was the same as Rub Rub Rub as it was so long ago! (That's one of my favourite scrubs too!) I can't resist the simple Butterball but I'll be heading to my local store to try something new. I really recommend their bubble bars too!

  10. There was an article about Lush founder Mark Constantine in the recent sunday times. Apparently Lush is in a court case with Amazon about using the word lush to sell other similar amazon products.
