I have been meaning to write my review on the Intergalactic Bath Bomb ever since it was first released as an Oxford Street exclusive back in 2015. A little over a year later it was made a permanent fixture in the everyday, Lush product collection meaning it was available to buy worldwide. Originally only available in one shop all over the world, Lush fans far and wide were naturally super excited to see Intergalactic added to the everyday line. This was a very wise decision made by Lush as now the Intergalactic bath bomb is Lush’s best selling bath bomb EVER.
The Intergalactic bath bomb is a deep, dark blue with hot pink, yellow-gold and white stripes/patches.
Packed with peppermint oil Intergalactic is one of the most refreshing bath bombs that I have used from Lush to date. Before trying Intergalactic my go to bath bomb for a splash of fresh was the Avobath or Dragon’s Egg. Both of these are rich with citrus, Intergalactic does contain grapefruit oil so is technically a citrus product too, the addition of the peppermint oil however gives the Intergalactic bath bomb a whole new level of refreshing power!
Peppermint oil is also very good to have around if you are feeling a little nauseous. I unfortunately suffer from nausea a lot because of the medications I am prescribed. A quick dip in an Intergalactic bath can help dampen the feeling of nausea. It’s not the cure but it certainly makes things a little easier for me after using it.
When the Intergalactic bath bomb first hits the bath water, it instantly fizzes up with a voracious and blue foamy hiss. As it fizzes away yellow, white and pink streaks begin to spiral out of it. Once the outer foamy layer disappears, you start to hear the popping candy that is hidden inside the Intergalactic bath bomb. Slow but loud pops carry on right until the bath bomb has fully dissolved.
What appears on first glance to be a very dark and mainly blue bath bomb actually creates the most amazing array of rainbow bright colours.
The bath water turns a beautiful shade of blue, it’s shimmery and reminds me of the night sky. Inspired by the Milky Way, Lush tell you to pop your Intergalactic in the bath tub and then sit back and relax, becoming the guardian of your very own, do it yourself, miniature galaxy.
An Intergalactic bath could really only be described as the bath equivalent of a deep space adventure, however on this occasion no astronaut suit is required. Your birthday suit will be more than adequate attire for this space age bathing experience! 😉
