Arguably one of Lush’s most glittery products ever. Let me tell you that Lush staff around the world fear the return of Golden Egg at Easter time because of the extreme amount of golden glitter that will inevitably cover them when they restock them, touch them or even move too closely to them. I’m serious.
First coming out in 2014’s Easter range, it’s since come back each year.
Golden Egg is half bath bomb, and half melt. The outer layer is a bath melt, and the inner section is a bath bomb.
It has the same sent as the very popular Honey I Washed The Kids soap, and like the soap, this product is also incredibly moisturising due to the high content of Cocoa Butter surrounding the ‘bomb’ part. unlike
Once placed in the water, aside from the layer of golden lustre escaping the product into the water, Golden Egg doesn’t do much for a while. The cocoa butter shell is really thick, so it takes a rather long time to melt, slowly giving off pale yellow streams into the water. As it continues to shrink, the bath bomb centre starts to fizz and the product starts spreading creamy white foam throughout the yellow.
Cocoa Butter isn’t the only moisturising ingredient in this product, it also features nourishing Almond Oil and protective Olive Oil to deeply penetrate and condition the skin.
At the end of the show you’re left with a golden yellow bath that shimmers with the lustre, although Golden Egg looks as though it has a massive glitter content, it doesn’t actually seem much more than the likes of Intergalactic and other sparkly bombs, and because of the high oil presence, the glitter doesn’t really stick to you too much either.
As already mentioned, this bath bomb melt features the Honey I Washed The Kids scent which is a delicious, uplifting toffee scent reminding me of childhood fudgy sweets, sticky caramel and is heavenly. It really leaves your skin smelling delightful long after your bath.
My skin always feels super soft and well moisturised after a bath with one of these Easter exclusives, I reckon it’ll be a very sad day if Lush ever decide to discontinue this product because it’s such a staple of the Easter range.
If you like Golden Egg that much then keep telling Lush to bring it back each year on social media, believe me, they do listen!
