Review - Space Girl Lush bath bomb

I am a massive fan of Lush, I love the fact that you can smell it from miles away and can spends ages picking each individual product up and smelling it. Unfortunately I hardly ever buy products as my nearest one is about half an hour away but I recently stocked up on a few bath bombs that should keep me going for a while!

I decided to give Space Girl a whirl as I had never tried it before. It looks so pretty! On the website it states that it is named after a song by the band The Imagined Village. Featuring the ingredients of grapefruit oil, bergamot oil and almond oil I was certain that it would be a keeper.

As I dropped it in, it didn't make that much of an impact with the fizzy-ness. Usually Lush bath bombs literally exploded but this one kind of faded into the background. I am not sure if this was because I had already had a good few weeks before I used it. But from previous experiences this doesn't usually affect it.

The smell however hit me as soon as it plopped into the water. It reminded me of the sweet Palma violets. Remember them? They are my favourite sweets so naturally I loved the smell. However this faded quite quickly, it didn't linger like some bath bombs do.

My favourite bath bombs change the colour of the water dramatically; some even stain the bath much to my dad's disgust. However this one disappointed me. As you can see from the third picture after it had dissolved, it didn't really leave that much of an impression. The purple just wasn't bright enough for me. Not enough glitter appeared in the water either for me but again I am not sure if this was because it had been sitting in my bathroom for too long before it was used.

I think I am going to buy this one again and try to use it straight away to see if it makes more of an impact.


  1. I love the Lush bath bombs! I haven't tried this one though, like you I prefer the really bright ones and the glittery ones!! xx

  2. I don't really like lush bath bombs :( I just don't think they do anything! I much prefer the bubble bars :) xxx

  3. Whilst I do like the bath bombs and the bubble bars we don't have them very often. My hubby turns green at the smell of them! If we walk past the store we have to cross the road they make him feel so ill.

    My youngest also loves baby face as well as the chocolate face mud.

  4. I've never been into a Lush, imagine that?! I am a bit anti-bath, but I had some rose petal bath things, which do smell yum.
    I just dive in the shower these days.

  5. I love parma violets too! I will have to try this bath bomb just for that moment of fragrance :)

  6. I prefer the bubble bars too though I recently tried the Twilight bath bomb which is quite good though it doesn't change the watch that much either. I love how soft they make your skin though! xx

  7. It looks super cool that's a bummer it didn't stay as cool in the water

  8. Ahh bath bombs are the actual best thing going!

    They always excite me!
