Pros: dissolves beautifully, doesn’t stain my bath or skin, fizzes pretty, outer look, relaxes, very bright water
Cons: price

Recently I’ve fallen in love with bath bombs. And a few days ago I discovered the Lush store and of course I couldn't walk away without a purchase. I especially wanted to try out the Intergalactic bath bomb.

The price was about $8 but the shop assistant advised me to buy the Northern Lights gift set for a better bargain.

There were three bombs in a set. And today we’ll speak about one of them - the Intergalactic one.

Driving home I was really worried that the bombs would smash each other in a box.

But all my worries were in vain as when I came home and opened the set I found out the all the bombs were carefully packed, safe and sound.


So, Intergalactic bath bomb.

  • Outer appearance:

The bomb itself is round and rather heavy. It weighs about 200g!


Oh, it’s amazing! The main color is turquoise and there’s also some yellow, light green, lilac, pink and some colors resembling the Milky Way. The color of the bomb hints that it’ll be really fun to have a bath with it. The bomb has a flat bottom which means that it won’t roll down anywhere.


At first I thought that it was too potent and chemical. But standing on the bathroom shelf it was tempting me to try it out.

Product description:

Out-of-this-world baths.

Ever wonder what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your tub with this interstellar bomb. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colors will send your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood bring you back to earth.

How to use

Fill your bathtub with warm water, drop in the bath bomb and lie back to enjoy its lovely color and gorgeous fragrance.

My boyfriend and I love having a bath together.

We think that it’s the best way to enjoy the entire play of colors, watching the bomb dissolving. It looks as though we are really on a spaceship.

So at first after we dropped the bomb into a tub it started fizzing and lathering giving out the neon-blue foam. This was happening for about a minute or so.

Then, the bomb turned into a colorful galaxy.

After that my entire tub turned into galaxy with a randomly swimming bomb which gave out colored foam and rainbow circles.

It was so difficult to take the eyes from such beauty and color changes.

With time the color of water became more and more blue. The bomb was fizzing like a candy pop.

And then the galaxy started splitting into an abundance of mini-galaxies.

Even our cat was startled by this show, can you imagine how impressed we were.

In the end the foam disappeared and the water looked like a cosmic lagoon of bright greenish-blue color with a milliard of silver sparkles.

Sparkles, glitters, shimmer, flecks! They were so shiny!

When the show was finished my boyfriend looked at me, then to the tub, then on me again and in his eyes I could clearly see that he didn’t have any desire to get into all this glamour cosmic beauty. While as for me, I was happy as a child bathing into that wonderful water.

So, I was sitting in the tub chasing the glitters and was thinking about the intergalactic travelling.

But out of nowhere our cat came and dipped its paws into the water trying to chase the glitters too! It was so funny when it was shaking the water off them. So having a bath turned into a chasing of glitters with a wet cat! Smile

About the nourishing properties:

First of all I think that this bomb is just for fun. The manufacturer doesn’t promise any intense nourishment or deep moisture. It promises the show and this is all what we actually get.

I heard that some people are mad that the bomb isn’t moisturizing. I can say that the tastes are different as I didn’t like the bomb infused with oils. I even had a great desire to have a shower straight after getting out out those waters.

But with this Intergalactic bomb there wasn’t anything like that. Or maybe I just wanted to rinse the glitters off my body.

About the scent:

We didn’t make out any grapefruit or Swiss pine or pepe mint scents. No, for us it smelled like sea water.


Of course at first we were having fun chasing the glitters, but later we relaxed, laid back and started to speak about space. It was so relaxing! I could feel that my nerves were eased and I felt way better. After having that bath I was sleeping like a child the whole night.


Neither our skin, nor our bath, let alone the cat, were stained with blue. All the glitters were also very easy to rinse off.

  • The bottom line:

The bomb is pricey but devilishly beautiful. I got everything from this bomb that I wanted Smile
