I am a little angry at myself for not taking more notice of the Space Girl Bath Bomb when it was readily available. Last year it sadly made the shortlist of Lush products that were set to go into retirement.
I alongside many other Lush fans wish that no Lush product ever had to be discontinued, it however makes way for new products so is an essential part of the Lush life.
As sad as we are to be losing a product, the excitement of new products always keeps us going…
When I found out that Space Girl was being replaced by the (at the time) Lush Oxford Street exclusive Frozen bath bomb I wasn’t as sad anymore. A little bit of me will always miss Space Girl as alongside the Twilight bath bomb it was one of the first bath bombs I tried. The rest of the world however needed to experience Frozen so I waved goodbye to Space Girl while welcoming Frozen with open arms.
The Space Girl bath bomb has a unique Saturn shape, no other bath bomb that I have come across has shared this trait. It is mainly just one colour (light-violet) it however also has a sprinkle of red dust on its exterior giving it a pinch of extra colour which also adds to its space-like design.
Containing both grapefruit and bergamot oil makes a Space Girl bath both an uplifting and a refreshing experience. Although it is very small, Space Girl doesn’t disappoint.
Once in the bath the scent of Space Girl really hits you. Theatrically the Space Girl bath bomb is a complete show off. Not only do you get the purple-blue and red colours swirling around your tub, you also get to see and hear the popping candy within it react to the water, it sounds like a teeny tiny, bath-time firework display.
Snap, Crackle and Pop!
I always find that a grapefruit’s scent is a million times more desirable than what it actually tastes like. Before I tried the Space Girl bath bomb grapefruit was something I avoided in meals and bath products. Not anymore!
Before I’d taken the time to learn about Lush products I was very cautious about the products that had ‘glitter’ in, it just didn’t compute well with me, you don’t need to be a brain surgeon to know that glitter isn’t the safest thing to bathe your naked body in, I am however so glad I did my research (and took the risk of trying a product with it in) as it’s really no big deal.
For the first few months of using Lush I was using products with ‘glitter’ in without even noticing.
It’s not ‘glitter’ at all, it is more of a cosmetic shimmer and I have grown very fond of it. It’s honestly not like hugging a Christmas decoration at all… It is barely noticeable and has never, personally caused me any irritation.
I recommend buying Space Girls every time they become available in the Lush Kitchen, they really are a favourite amongst the retro loving Lushies.
