Wow okay so I am officially obsessed with LUSH cosmetics!
I know, it took me a really long time to jump on the band wagon. To be honest though, in the past (back when I didn’t have a job) I couldn’t justify spending a massive $6.75 on a bath bomb.
Once again, I know, I was a really lame person because what’s $6.75 in the grand scheme of things?
Regardless, my first experience with a LUSH product was a remarkably relaxing bath with their Space Girl bath bomb. The beautifully crafted bath bomb is in the shape of my favourite planet, Saturn.
This bath bomb seemed ridiculously glittery. I expected to emerge from the water like a sparkling alien of LUSHy goodness, and I did, but I didn’t have glitter all over me and in my hair, which was the greatest surprise of them all.
Firstly, when I placed the bath bomb into the water, a bittersweet aroma filled the room while Space Girl exploded into a pretty red rose shaped pattern, which quickly turned purple and spread throughout the water. I couldn’t recognise what scent the bath bomb was, but I later found out that it was blackcurrant. Soon enough, the water looked like a sparkling lilac galaxy, and when I got into the bath, the water was silky smooth.
I decided that I would make a really big deal about bath time, mostly because every bath I have is usually very unexciting and consists of very pathetic bubbles that last at most five minutes. In order to ensure that I was fully relaxed, I rented a copy of Gone Girl, set up my laptop, and lit some candles. To be honest, I didn’t realise that this could be a very practical thing, and it feels a little weird saying that I’ve done so. Regardless, I was extremely relaxed and there began my LUSH obsession.
Practically, I knew that this couldn’t last forever (or even last the running time of the movie), but I enjoyed every minute of it. When I came out of the bath, my skin was so, incredibly soft and smooth, and even my face was really smooth for days following the bath. I expected that as soon as I showered that this silkiness would wash off, but it didn’t, I assume it absorbed into my skin. With that being said, I have very sensitive skin, and I had no reactions to this product!
To say that something that seems as artificial as a bath bomb seeped into my skin on my face and didn’t encourage a massive break out was incredible, especially considering the glitter.
I think LUSH has definitely lived up to my expectations, and I’m really, really looking forward to my next bath with my new Twilight bath bomb that I bought the same day that I used Space Girl (I don’t want to be without)
Like I said, it has become an obsession.
I’m thinking of doing a fortnightly bath bomb post and review all of the different LUSH bath bombs, what do you guys think?
Also, I finally watched Gone Girl as was pretty happy with the film adaptation, especially considering how much I loved the book, but does Amy infuriate you like she infuriates me?
