LUSH Shoot For The Stars

(Just sorting out this post ready to be published and I'd love to say the stars/sky theme was planned... but I've only just noticed it. As you were.)

I have no self control when it comes to LUSH. There, I said it: I am a full-blown addict. I should have known better, really, than to walk into the store to buy only one thing; it's impossible to leave without a bag of treats. But I reviewed them all for you, because I'm nice like that.

First, we have Shoot For The Stars (v) (above), and frankly I was sold as soon the assistant compared it to Van Gogh's Starry Night because I really love that painting. The water was blue with swirls of purple (and a touch of yellow) and once things had settled it became this gorgeous midnight blue. There was a fair amount of glitter, or 'lustre' as LUSH call it, and it stuck to both me and the bath. Tbh, I'm not sure it's actually necessary? It looks very delicate in the water but I'm not sure it adds anything, except extra cleaning.

The Brazilian orange and bergamot scent is lovely  so lovely, in fact, that Shoot For The Stars worked well as a room fragrance when I was storing it. (I kinda miss that, I might buy another one just to use as an air-freshener type thing).

Repurchase? Definitely

LUSH Twilight

Next is Twilight (v), a firm favourite in the blogosphere and a bath bomb I'd been wanting to try out for ages. It has a lavender scent, which thankfully isn't too overpowering, and it turned the water a lovely shade of purple, with bubbles and everything! Proper, frothy, foamy bubbles. Once again, there was some silver glitter in there as well, which was cute, but that stuff gets everywhere, and I mean everywhere. (Let me put it this way: it's the closest I'll ever come to getting a vajazzle.) I felt very relaxed and refreshed after my bath, and I slept like a baby.

Repurchase? Yes

LUSH Intergalactic

Finally, I picked up Intergalactic (v), which is relatively new. It turned the water Smurf blue, with bright pink and yellow swirls, and then settled down to more of a mid-blue with gold glitter (sorry, lustre). The peppermint and grapefruit scent was lovely and refreshing, but honestly? I got out of the bath feeling a little underwhelmed. I think cleaning up the glitter was starting to get to me!

Repurchase? I'm not as mad about Intergalactic as I am about the other two. I enjoyed my bath, but I don't think this is a bath bomb I'll be seeking out again.

Have you tried any of these? Which bath bombs would you recommend next? Let me know in the comments!
