Golden Wonder is a Lush Christmas Classic and you can’t really call yourself a Lush superfan unless you’ve tried it. It truly is a wonder to behold, covered in a golden shimmer and topped with a beautiful cream bow, but the real treasure hidden in this present is the colour inside.
It features a fragrance that has appeared frequently in different formats and under different names over the years but is made up of Sweet Orange Oil, Lime Oil and Cognac Oil.
The scent is beautifully uplifting whilst remaining very light and not too heady. Being fruity, yet sharp its very reminiscent of champagne, sparkling wines and the very thing it’s meant to smell like – a glass of Buck’s Fizz. A perfect bathing companion for Christmas morning perhaps? Or maybe even New Year’s Eve!
Immediately upon contact with the water, it starts to fizz and almost instantly reveals it’s hidden colour, a beautiful and vibrant blue. It’s quite the fast fizzer and soon creamy whites and yellows from the outer shell mix with the blue, resulting in a gorgeous turquoise colour that glimmers with all the golden lustre floating throughout, looking like velvet dancing in an ocean.
Golden Wonder also contains little tiny stars that remain even when the bath bomb doesn’t, these float around in the water only adding to the magic.
The warming scent really remained throughout my bathing and also on my skin after, albeit very lightly. What was more prominently covering my body was the remains of the golden glitter, giving me a shimmer in the light which I personally love but can understand might not be for everyone. If that doesn’t appeal to you then all you need do is rinse yourself down with the shower head, like you might also have to do to your tub…
I’ve used a Golden Wonder each year for a number of years now and I love it every time, it’s a real iconic part of the Christmas collection and I think a lot of fans would be disappointed if it ever left!
