Review: Lush Golden Wonder

I got the chance to pick up a few goodies from Lush's Christmas selection this week (haul video coming up on Friday!) and I tried their 'Golden Wonder' bath ballistic for the first time. I hadn't picked this up before as it has quite a clean, citrus scent and I normally go for the more spicey, traditionally festive scents (like cinders) but this time I wanted to try a few new things, so I went for this pretty parcel-shaped bomb (mainly because of the bow!)

When you shake it, you can tell there is something inside. I quite like the idea of it being like shaking a Christmas present under the tree. I always was a present-rattler as a kid (and still am... Shhhh!) so I thought this was a cute idea. I didn't however, expect the surprise inside to be quite so pretty!
As expected, the bath bomb starts to turn your bath water a sparkling golden yellow, but then turns green, starting to omit hundreds of tiny gold stars amongst the glitter, then turning the bath a deep teal blue colour. So beautiful!

The scent is also really nice and relaxing. Its a blend of orange, lime and cognac (the same scent as their Snowshowers bath jelly) Surprisingly, the stars dissolve totally before I drain the bath too, so it didn't leave any messy residue. I'm a big fan of this- I'll certainly be stocking up on these before the Christmas goodies sell out!
They are surprisingly not too expensive in comparison to some of Lush's bath products at £3.25, and make for a lovely festive bath time treat!

  31. Love it. I've always thought Lush products smell so strong they might give me thrush (don't ask me why, just a phobia lol), but I think I'm gonna give this a go. The teal water looks like the sea somewhere exotic.
