Lou's Reviews :: LUSH Space Girl Ballistic


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Remember in the olden days, when we were kids and a bath was something your mum made you do to get clean? Isn't it funny that now it's transformed from an essential yet boring daily chore, to a relaxing treat. I can't recall the last time I had one without an 'accompniment'. No, no, not the human type (filthy minds), but yummy bubble baths, luxe oils or fun and sparkly bath bombs.


Lush's Space Girl bath bomb certainly ticks fun and sparkly. This purple flying saucer shaped ballistic turns your water a deep violet and leans to a more fruity smell than floral or vanilla, which is no surprise considering it contains bergamot, grapefruit and almond oils as well as citric acid. I must say though, the fragrance is very light and not at all overpowering like some of my past Lush experiences.

I love that this product contains glitter. We all know I have an obsession with the stuff. Personally, I would've coped with a lot more, but I'm not sure that would be to everyone's taste. The glitter isn't all that obvious until you look for it. When you really do have a good gander, you will note little shimmers of red and gold amongst your purple bath- lovely.


According to the WEBSITE, the Space Girl bath bomb also has popping candy packed inside it. It suggests submerging your head under water to hear this, but I must say, that's not something I have done or will do- I don't like the feeling of water in my ears. Has anyone else tried and verified Lush's candytastic claim?

Retailing for £1.95 (the lower end of the bath bomb price spectrum), having a cool shape, making my water violet and glittery and not being overly pungent makes Space Girl one of my favourites from Lush and a product that I have bought over and over.

Have you this ballistic? What is your absolute fave?

Toodlepip!

  1. I'm not a massive lover of bath bombs actually, they smell nice and everything but I don't like that they create no bubble. I love the bubble bars best from lush because you can get a lot of uses out of them if you chop them up with a knife :) xxx

  6. Does that mean that you end up with glitter all over your nakey body when you get out of the bath? I actually wouldn't mind this haha.

    PS - just realised that sounds very creepy, I don't mean "you" as in you personally, I meant the universal "you"! Please don't think I am a strange girl who likes to see naked glittery bodies!

  22. You make me want to nag my mum into getting a bath. I've missed having one !
    I'd also love to have Lush shops here but sadly, WE DO NOT.
    Haha, you must have a mini internal orgasm when you see the glitter [No.. not that type of orgasm ! ]

  24. I love LUSH. I haven't tried 'Space Girl' (yet) - but I will.
    I prefer the Bubble Bars though, especially 'The Comforter'.
    My favourite bath bomb is 'Butterball'.

  30. I haven't tried this one in my bath personally!

    I did a little stint in Lush last Christmas, and I adored showing everyone how they worked in baths, I just got to put all the bath bombs in water all day and watch them! :D xx

  33. I really like the LUSH Twilight Bath Bomb, the scent and color is divine, very relaxing. For a more "fun" (less relaxing) bath bomb I like the Dragon's Egg...and let me tell you, you HAVE to like glitter to be a fan of this one :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the smell and look of bath bombs, but I wonder if they make your skin dry? x
