When I very first tried the Golden Wonder bath bomb it made me want winter to last forever, a very bold statement for someone who has always disliked winter and is forever saying that they are cold!
Although I would still describe myself as a through and through summer girl, I am now content when winter arrives, knowing that I will be in the company of a huge amount of new and returning old, yet-much-loved winter Lush products makes it very, very easy.
With all thanks to Lush Cosmetics, what used to be an unbearable time of year for me, is now not just bearable but exciting too.
I am ashamed to admit that it took me until Christmas 2015 to actually try the Golden Wonder bath bomb. In years prior to 2015, I just wasn’t at all interested in the collection as a whole. I would always go for other bath bombs that in my eyes, appeared more interesting.
I am mortified that it took me so long to try the Golden Wonder bath bomb and my ignorance with it has taught me to never leave a Lush stone unturned.
After finally using the Golden Wonder bath bomb in 2015 and furthermore instantly falling in love with it, I knew that without the Golden Wonder bath bomb Christmas would never be the same again. It is now one of my essential winter time products.
If Lush ever dared to not bring it back I think I’d have some sort of break down. That is no exaggeration either, I LOVE IT more than any of the other winter bath bombs. Christmas isn’t Christmas if I don’t have the Golden Wonder bath bomb to enjoy.
If I could only use 3 Lush scents for the rest of my life the scent of the Golden Wonder bath bomb would make the list without question.
The scent of the bath bomb is called Celebrate and since falling in love with the Golden Wonder bath bomb, I have made it my mission to collect anything else that shares its scent.
Some of my favourite Lush products from its scent family are the solid and liquid perfume, the First Snow dusting powder and the Celebrate body lotion.
The Celebrate scent is often compared to champagne. I however disagree, the scent of the Golden Wonder bath bomb is way too citrusy for me to ever think of it as champagne inspired. I wouldn’t even put it in the same category as buck’s fizz. I urge anyone who isn’t sure on the scent to please give it a go, the more I use it, the more in love with it I fall.
Containing sweet orange, lime and cognac oil the Golden Wonder bath bomb smells to me just like Christmas, I can’t help but always subconsciously associate the two together.
Celebrate has a warm and inviting scent that it is portrayed very well within all of the other Lush products that are blessed with its same scent. Once you are hooked on one Celebrate product you will be in search for others that smell the same. Before you know it you will be starting a Celebrate-scented-quest. Your mission (which you will have no trouble in choosing to accept) is to combine all of the Celebrate scented products you can lay your hands on to make one Christmas-crazy, Lush product cocktail!
As well as smelling absolutely amazing, the Golden Wonder bath bomb puts on a fantastic show once plonked into your bath water. The very first time I used it I actually shouted ‘OOO!’ followed by me cursing (a lot) as none of the photos I took did the bath bomb any justice at all.
To this day I still haven’t captured any photos that I feel worthy of showing its full potential. You really have to try it for yourself to appreciate its true beauty.
Out of all of the bath bombs I have tried over the years Golden Wonder is still the one I will always remember as giving one of the best surprises upon first use.
When placed in the bath water the Golden Wonder bath bomb begins to ferociously fizz, forming a small stream of dazzlingly gold bubbles. After a short moment other colours appear from within the golden bath bomb too.
Nearer the end of the Golden Wonder’s performance small balls of pink, yellow, green and blue float to the surface, temporarily poker dotting the now deep blue, shimmery bath water.
The Golden Wonder bath bomb is a real pleasure to watch in the bath tub and a great treat for winter tired skin too, an added bonus that I had forgot to mention is the lustre and miniature dissolvable stars in it.
The slight golden shimmer that is left after the bath bomb has dissolved along with the light dusting of stars makes the bath water appear like a clear night’s sky.
Everything I like about a bath bomb is in Golden Wonder, EVERYTHING!
I am so, so impressed with this bath bomb and was so from my very first use. It is one of the only winter bath bombs that I really, really look forward to getting every year.
The Golden Wonder bath bomb will always be one of my all-time favourite Lush products, the only reason I wouldn’t recommend it to others is so that there are more for me to buy and keep all for myself…
