Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb

Shoot For The Stars is yet another Christmas exclusive that feels like it’s been around forever. It first appeared for Christmas 2013, although it looked much different and didn’t sport this vibrant blue design with the three golden stars embedded into the surface until 2016. As the last of my Christmas bath products, I feel it was a great one to end on.

Shoot For The Stars shares it’s scent with the popular ‘Honey I Washed The Kids’ scent, which is a delicious, honey scented fragrance reminiscent of fudge and caramel sweets. Although mostly unnoticeable in the background of the scent, theres a citrus note which comes from the fruitiness of Orange and Bergamot Oils and is actually what makes up the biggest portion of the scent, surprisingly.

I actually think that this particular bath bomb has a much stronger scent than the Honey I Washed The Kids Soap, so its perfect if you’re a big fan. Furthermore, a high amount of rich Cocoa Butter and Creamed Coconut add a buttery warmth that makes it ever so comforting.

As you can imagine with such a vivid colour, once in the bath an explosion of blue jets into the water, colouring it with the same vivid pigment as the ballistic itself. It’s such a beautiful colour, it gets top marks for simply just that! As it dissolves, the golden stars detach and float off. Even though there’s only three visible stars, there’s often one or two hidden in the centre of the bomb which is a nice surprise! The stars act very much like bath melts, imbuing the water with the Cocoa Butter & Almond Oil goodness and adding specks of gold into the blue. You’ll definitely notice how oily and rich the water feels once they’ve fully melted and you’ll appreciate the silky smooth feeling on your skin. If you’re someone who suffers from drying winter skin, then this would be an excellent way of combating it.

The scent was just as prevalent in the water as it was to begin with and likewise on my skin after. I definitely feel no need to moisturise whenever I use a Shoot For The Stars but feel free to if you so wish.

I can’t imagine that Lush have any plans to discontinue this fab product anytime soon, so I expect we’ll see it return for 2019’s range!

Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt

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!
