Description

For those of you who can’t help shaking that present with your name on it under the Christmas tree.
This bath bomb is like a pass the parcel gift – each layer has something different to offer. This is not for a quick bath because it takes its time, this bath bomb. Its layers of golden lustre, dazzling colours and soluble gold stars are a wonder to behold.
Lush love this ballistic so much, they decided to put one of their most popular perfumes in it, so that lots of people will enjoy bathing in it. Long standing customers will recognise the smell of Snowshowers shower jelly. Newer customers might like to know that the smell is of a light fizzing champagne cocktail, and contains sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil.
So wonder no longer – put one of these in your basket and try it for yourself!
This ballistic contains edible gold lustre and soluble paper stars – so there’ll be no sparkly bits left to clean out of your bath afterwards.
Only available at Christmas.

Directions

First take some time to shake it, listen to the little rattle from within and try to imagine what’s in there. Then drop it in your water and revel in the sweet orange and cognac oils.
This bath bomb is guaranteed to put you in the mood for festive celebrations. You could even try using the new Lush, unpreserved Celebrate body lotion after your bath – they share the same fizzy champagne cocktail fragrance.
This isn’t a bath – this is an event!

This is quite a big ballistic but it is also quite expensive at £3.25. You are meant to pop the whole thing in you bath and really enjoy the experience of the ballistic fizzing and gradually changing colour. However at £3.25 there was no way this was just going to give me one bath so I broke mine up!! I know that is cheating as I then discovered what was inside but I am not telling as it would spoil it for you.

This ballistic has some lovely ingredients such as sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil and hence it has a lovely uplifting sweet citrus quality to the scent and that apart from its special shape and the hidden surprise is what attracted me to this.

MY EXPERIENCE

I have already told you that i broke mine up so I carefully selected bits that were different colours so that I would experience the full effect of the ballistic even though I had broken it. I took about a third of the mixed bits and popped them into my bath and watched as they swirled around fizzing and giving off their different colours.


The golden bits went yellow and the blue bits went blue then they merged to produce greeny blue clear water with little gold stars floating around with a glimmer of gold on the surface. It was so beautiful and I wondered what would happen to the little stars when I got in and if they would be left in my bath after I had let the water out.


This has to be one of the most exciting bath ballistics lush have created for action and interest and I am so pleased I bought it because even thought I had broken it up I still got the entire mix of colour, stars and shimmer as well as the lovely sweet citrus scent so i was really pleased.

The water smelled lovely and felt so soft. I loved the shimmery water and finally when I let the water out I just swilled the final glimmer from the bath and certainly was not left with an awful mess to clean which is always a bonus. I think the little gold stars just dissolved after a while in the hot bath.

WHAT GOODIES ARE IN THIS ONE ?

Sodium Bicarbonate and cream of tartar help to soften the water and balance the acidity

Sweet Orange Oil just smells so lovely and it helps calm the mind and lift the spirits so a sort of bath time happy mix

Cognac Oil has a herby aroma but doesn’t seem to bring much else to the product.

Lime oil helps improve circulation helps with arthritis and rheumatism. It also helps with oily skin and detoxifying the skin.

Gardenia Extract is known in aromatherapy for its soothing and calming aroma

Edible Golden Stars and Golden Lustre just for the fun of it.


ARE THERE ANY UNPLEASANT INGREDIENTS?

Surly not, this is Lush after all but you might be surprised to find that Lush, although I am one of their biggest fans is not perfect.

Lush do somewhat gloss over the less great contents. I have done a bit of research and have discovered that some of these so called natural contents are anything but.

These are less desirable sodium laureth sulfate is there to make the bubbles. This has been linked to cancer so if this bothers you then I suggest you have a look on line.

The Cocamide DEA is a viscosity, thickening and foam booster but once again there have been stories about links with cancer. The storage and handling precautions are also a little worrying.

SUMMARY

This is a bit of fun to have a nicely scented bath. If you have tried Lush’s Champagne Snow Showers in the past this has the same scent.

If you have any skin problems then be aware that there are ingredients in this that could aggravate eczema and the like. I do have sensitive skin and I had no problems so obviously these aren’t the ingredients I am allergic too.

I did like this ballistic and it is one of few I would buy again but it is quite expensive for what you get but makes a lovely treat but I do actually prefer bubble bars to bath ballistics.

So I would recommend if you like Christmassy surprises with fresh uplifting scents and a lovely clear greeny blue water with gold shimmer and stars to make you feel special.

Golden Wonder is only available at Christmas, but I'd happily use it all year round. Gorgeous!

A large bath bomb. A lovely citrus fragrance that lingers on the skin. Very pretty and glittery, dissolving to reveal a gorgeous turquoise colour. Leaves the skin feeling super-soft.

The bath is very slippery after use.
