Lush Oxford Street Exclusives: Intergalactic Bath Bomb

When I was in London at the beginning of June I made a little visit to the Lush Oxford Street because I wanted to get my hands on some of their exclusives. After a browse I decided that one of the ones I needed to try was Intergalactic because it looked too interesting to let pass. Now, I essentially just did a smell test for all of the products I chose (and I actually only chose two now that I think about it) so I had no idea what to expect. With book in hand, I ran my bath and let the magic happen. 

The first thing I was excited about was the colour, but I had no idea how colourful this baby was. It was literally like bathing in a cosmic bath and it was then that it dawned on me that the name Intergalactic was chosen for a specific reason. The main colour is a deep dark blue which is what the colour of the bath turns once all the frothing and fizzing ends. The fizzing is intense and fast, this one is a nice active bath bomb that spreads quickly. It smells delightful, I don't know exactly what is in this but I think I could smell mint which was pleasant. A subtle mint beneath whatever beautiful aroma it produced.

A total bonus is that there is popping candy inside, but this is the best popping candy I've seen in a bath bomb yet. One of the Christmas range, Cinders, has popping candy as does Dragon's Egg but Intergalactic takes the cake for best popping candy experience. It's amazing to listen to. If popping candy wasn't enough, there is also glitter in this bomb, and not just a little glitter - a lot of glitter. I am pro-glitter so loved bathing in my dark blue, swirling glitter, space bath but if you're not a fan of glitter for whatever reason, Intergalactic should be avoided.

I seriously did not want to leave my bath. It felt like it stayed warmer for longer and I read so much of my book as a result. I was very sad when I had to leave. This is one that I hope stops being an Oxford Street exclusive and becomes one that is available in every store because I seriously want to experience this again.


  1. Next time I am in London I am going to heave to head there, heard so many great things!
