Lush Bathbomb Review

Today, I'm going to do a little review of the three bathbombs I purchased last month in my Lush haul. I bought The Experimenter, Intergalactic & Sakura and I really enjoyed using them. Trying new bathbombs for the first time was an exciting experience, and I can't wait to buy some more!

I chose the Experimenter bath bomb because of it's vibrant colours and interesting name, but also because it contains fairtrade vanilla & I love vanilla! If you a fan of awesome bath art then you'll love the Experimenter (for any of my readers who have never heard of bath art, check out all these fantastic instagram photos). When I first dropped it in the water, it immediately started filling my bath with swirls of pink, blue, purple, orange and yellow. It looked amazing and was exciting to watch! After all the colours had fizzled away, the bath water remained a dark purple-black colour, which is different than any bathbomb I've tried before. The soft scent of vanilla mixed in with scents I'd never experienced before (tonka & vetivert oil) was relaxing, and I recommend this bathbomb. 

 The Intergalactic bathbomb is AMAZINGGG! I am in love with it! I first heard about this bathbomb via instagram, and I was fascinated with watching videos of it. As soon as I got chance to go to a Lush store and smelt this bathbomb, it was very difficult for me not to spend all my budget by purchasing several of these. Another of my favourite scents is mint, and the Intergalactic bathbomb is made up of a mixture of oils: Peppermint, Grapefruit, Cedarwood & Vetivert. Like the Experimenter, the Intergalactic also contains popping candy which is a fun addition that adds to the awesomeness of these bathbombs. I've heard that this bathbomb is based on the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and sitting in the bath surrounded by the blues, pinks, purples and whites definitely made me feel like I was floating in the galaxy. After all the bright colours had disappeared, the water was a beautiful shade of blue with sprinklings of glitter. It was magical and so far this is my favourite lush bathbomb

 I decided to buy the Sakura bathbomb because it looks really pretty and because of it's Japanese name (I'm a little obsessed with Japan). I had also read somewhere that it turned your bath water pink... but that was wrong! :( Instead as this bathbomb dissolves, the bath is filled with a cloudy white colour with little hints of pink. It had a nice scent, a combination of Mimosa, Orange flower, Jasmine & Lemon Oil and I would recommend it for everyone who loves floral fragrances. As the name of the bathbomb translates to cherry blossom, I did expect cherry or cherry blossom to be one of the components. It was a nice experience to try the Sakura bathbomb and it left my skin feeling very soft, but it's not really for me. 

I can't wait to buy more lush bathbombs! Next month, I'll be reviewing the two bubblebars I purchased along with these bathbombs. I hope you all enjoyed reading


 I'd love some suggestions on which bathbombs to try next :) 



  1. Ah this is the second post I've read tonight that's made me want to get up out of bed and into a bath. Intergalactic is sooooo dreamy. I haven't tried it yet but I want to try Fizzbanger next, weird name but sounds like it would be so relaxing :) xx

    1. I wanted to stop typing and get into the bath when I was writing up this blog post! haha

      I'm tempted to go have a bath right now, because I have an Intergalactic bath bomb left :)

      I'll look for Fizzbanger when I'm next in Lush. I'm looking forward to trying all the Christmas bathbombs & bubblebars!
