Golden Wonder Bath Bomb from Lush

I've never been a huge fan of Lush, not because I particularly dislike their products but mainly because whenever I leave their store I have the most awful headache! It reminds me of The Body Shop in the 90's - too many overpowering scent in one room and I just can't deal. However, there are a few products for which I will continue to venture into this fragrance abomination centre for and the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb is one of them!

On a side note, I love the Lush Christmas bags! I think the candy cane handle is very creative, so props to Lush for that. Although the bath bomb itself is slightly festive as it is present shaped I'm pretty sure the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb is available all year round (yay)! Moving on to the hardest part of this blog (or any fragrance related post) the scent. It has top notes are citrus (namely orange and lime) while the middle notes are slightly more floral with a base note of musk. This bath bomb definitely smells Christmassy to me, I'm not sure why though. Perhaps it's the orange that reminds me of Christmas clementines! Here is the official Lush description of Golden Wonder "Going out to a Christmas Party? Run a deep warm bath, ease yourself in, then drop in this perfect parcel with a fresh burst of citrus. Best enjoyed drinking a glass of Bucks Fizz in the tub". I love Bucks Fizz and the mention of it is spot on as this bath bomb as a definite fizzy orange sherbet scent to it.

The bath bomb is covered in gold glitter which is great because everyone knows glitter is one of the worlds most amazing creations. In addition to the glitter extravaganza there are little soluble gold stars embedded in the bath bomb which float around your tub and slowly dissolve. 

If the stars and the glitter weren't enough though, that is only one layer. The centre of the bath bomb is filled with blue and purple fizz collectively turning your bath into what can only be described as an exotic lagoon!

Drop it in and watch it work its magic then climb into the best bathing experience of your life.

Available from Lush for £3.25 (and worth every penny)!
