I’m ending ’12 Days of LUSHmas’ off with a show stopper – the prettiest Bath Bomb I ever did see! Ladies (and gentlemen), this is Golden Wonder Bath Bomb from the LUSH Christmas 2014 collection.
Golden Wonder is shaped like a Christmas present with a white bow to top it off, and when you shake it you can hear there is a little something inside, it almost sounds like little bells. I have no idea how LUSH did this, but it’s awesome! As a kid, I used to shake all the Christmas prezzies under the tree (when noone was watching), to see if I could figure out what was inside them. I don’t do that anymore…nope, not me…
This little gift from LUSH is COVERED with tiny gold shimmers, so it was like taking a bath with a unicorn sitting right there in the tub with you! I expected the bath water to turn a golden yellow shade when I plopped it into my bath but it actually fizzed away to reveal layers of different colours, eventually turning the bath water into an ocean of shimmering teal and gold. Needless to say, I spent the majority of my bath pretending I was a mermaid!
Golden Wonder contains a mixture of uplifting Lime Oil, refreshing Sweet Orange Oil, Cognac Oil and tension-relieving Gardenia Extract – just what the Doctor ordered after a stressful day at work.
Upon dropping this golden parcel in the bath water, it immediately started to fizz and foam, gushing out a creamy white and yellow froth. As with most of the LUSH Ballistics, Golden Wonder danced on the surface of the water, bobbing around like a golden Christmas bauble. After a few seconds, it opens up to produce swirls of vibrant blue, green and purple froth. Golden Wonder contains edible gold lustre & water soluble paper stars, giving the bath a look of magical wonder. The stars dissolve before the bath water is drained (unless you take a 5-minute bath, but who does that anyway!?), so they didn’t leave any type of messy residue behind. The last thing I want to do after getting out of a relaxing bath, is scrub the tub – and LUSH very cleverly thought of that!
The bath water felt soft and tender on the skin, and a zesty & uplifting scent filled the bathroom. There was a hint of a citrus scent left on my skin once I got out of the bath, but just faint enough to catch a whiff of it every so often. I did notice my skin was decorated with a few golden shimmers, but they didn’t make my skin feel itchy at all (and I have quite sensitive skin when it comes to glitter).
You’ll definitely feel the Christmas cheer after using one of these Bath Bombs – Golden Wonder is my number 1 favourite Christmas 2014 collection product and I wish I had known this before I bought the goodies for the giveaway because I would have added this to the hamper for sure! I definitely want to stock up on a couple more of these before the Christmas range is sold out, so perhaps I’ll place an online order in the next week or so & sneak a Golden Wonder into the prize hamper. It will depend on whether it’s still in stock online when I place the order though…
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb retails for R 65,00 and is currently available in the LUSH online store, as well as in-store (Cavendish, V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk and Gateway).
I bought a couple of extra LUSH goodies for one lucky Pink Peonies blog reader because I wanted to say thank you for all the love and support you guys have given me this past year. My blog isn’t even 2 years old yet, and thanks to each and every single one of you, it has grown into what it is today. There have been highs and lows but I could (and still can) always count on your support and encouragement.
You have no idea how much your comments on my blog posts, random tweets, emails, comments on my Instagram photos mean to me and I can’t put it into words either, but just know it means the world to me. So, this is my little way of saying thank you and MERRY CHRISTMAS (or shall I say Merry LUSHmas).
The hamper includes:
1. LUSH The Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar (limited edition)
2. LUSH Granny Takes A Tip Bath Bomb (a psychedelic explosion)
3. LUSH Northern Lights Bath Bomb (limited edition – this thing is incredible!)
4. LUSH Candy Mountain Bubble Bar (limited edition)
5. LUSH Cinders Bath Bomb (limited edition)
