Pick n' Mix 52 Week Challenge: Favorite Brand

Strictly speaking Soap and Glory isn't my favorite brand, however I do like the brand a fair bit. I already did some Lush inspired nails here. Back in 2010 Soap and Glory did a gift set called The Big Softie which is what inspired these nails;

Review: Lush - Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic

Lush - Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic

"For those of you who can’t help shaking that present with your name on it under the Christmas tree.

This bath bomb is like a pass the parcel gift – each layer has something different to offer. This is not for a quick bath because it takes its time, this bath bomb. Its layers of golden lustre, dazzling colours and soluble gold stars are a wonder to behold
" - Lush

I got this one as a gift for Christmas. This Bath Ballistic is quite big, and because of that I thought it would be good to break it in half and split it over two baths. It didn't break up very evenly, it more shattered apart. This is what was in the middle of the Golden Wonder gift.

The outside of Golden Wonder is a white, gold colour with golden shimmer on it. Inside there is a blue layer and finally inside are some little multi colour domes.

If you watch the video you can see that there is some golden glitter stars, these seemed to appear from nowhere and then disappeared! Visually this bath experience was quite good, it had a couple of different colours, there was the golden stars and the water turned aqua blue and had a golden shimmer running throughout the water. Definitely a bit of an event as Lush describe.

The scent was fresh, but not in a citrus way, it didn't linger on my skin. I didn't find it to be moisturising, then again it didn't claim to be so.

Thankfully the golden shimmer didn't stick to my skin so I didn't end up looking like a disco ball which was something I was worried about. Also the shimmer and stars melted and disappeared so there was no clean up of the bath needed afterwards.



Overall this was quite a visual bath ballistic rather than it having any particular properties. I liked it and was glad that the glitter / lustre / stars didn't stick to the bath nor to myself. Which gets a thumbs up from me!
