A Little Lush

I read a lot of blog posts about Lush products but up until now have never tried any.  Lush stores have been in Australia for a while but I could never really bring myself to go in.  Why?  Because of the smell.  Don't get me wrong...it was never a bad smell!  It's just that when I walked past the store I would immediately begin to feel itchy.  My nose would start to twitch, my throat would start to burn and even my eyes would water.  As you can probably guess I'm a bit sensitive to overly scented products, so for me a Lush store was equivalent to torture, despite the delicious treats concealed within.


So, as a result I have never bought anything from Lush, as tempting as the bath bombs and hair products looked.  But then I discovered Lush online and bath time has been changed forever.
 
I ordered four different bath bombs to try, one of them being this....
....  the 'Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic'.  It was super festive with it's shimmery gold and pretty white bow, perfect in the lead up to Christmas.
 
My husband was away shearing up north, the kids were (finally) in bed, so I decided to treat myself and have a relaxing bath.  Now I've never used a bath bomb before so this completely freaked me out!  (In a good way).
How much fun are bath bombs?!  This particular one had a description that read -  "Drop this gold dust gift in a warm bath and watch in wonder as golden stars burst out, turning the bath a vibrant blue.  The champagne-like fragrance of sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil will uplift your spirits."
 
I was pretty gobsmacked that it turned the water blue after all that gold.   I also really liked the gold stars and the lovely golden shimmer that drifted about the bath for a while after it turned blue.
Pretty gold stars!
Hello...blue water.
 
All in all I did have a relaxing bath, something I should do more often as I know it will be good for my bad back and my frazzled nerves (!)  Now, with a couple more bath bombs to try, I have an excuse!
 
What are your favourite Lush products?

  1. That looks amazing! I can never decide what I want when never I go into a Lush shop, it's to difficult to choose! I did pick something up though, will be sharing it soon :)

  2. Lush baths always look so magical. I've never gotten any of their products myself, given I've never had a nice bath to take an actual soak-in-the-water bath in, but if the day ever comes when I do have such a thing, I think I'll have to at least buy something for the beautiful art it makes in the water!

  5. My favourite is the santa one they bring out at Christmas.
    I love your bathroom decor by the way. Ever thought about doing a little home tour/interior decorating type post? x

    1. I think they had the Santa one available online. I could do a post on the interior of my home, but this bathroom photo is seriously cropped to hide the mess of bath toys!! But definitely great idea, I will do one for sure...(although I will probably have to photoshop out all the destruction caused by my kids!)
