I say:

I loved the look of the Shoot For the Stars Bath Bomb in store;  I am a real sucker for space themed anything.  I may be a secret hipster, but shhh, let’s just keep that between us two.   I was hoping that this bath bomb would turn my waters into a beautiful, starry night sky… and it did not disappoint.

Shoot For the Stars Bath Bomb was quite the silent worker.  It didn’t seem to make much noise whilst it was getting to work;  I barely heard it fizz.   I expected it to be similar to the now discontinued Space Girl that had popping candy included.   That particular bath bomb definitely made some noise, even whilst you were in the bath!

In my opinion, this bath bomb took a long time to dissolve.  Whilst I initially enjoyed watching it at the beginning, I didn’t want my bath to go cold and I ended up getting in the bath and speeding up the process… i.e. crushing the bath bomb in my hands.  Dannie want bath, Dannie smash puny bath bomb!

I absolutely loved how the water looked with this bath bomb.  The initial colours reminded me of a painting, with so many different colours; green, pink, blue, purple!  After the fizz had disappeared, the water had turned a beautiful inky purple.  With the lustre, the water had a gorgeous shimmer without the annoying residue of glitter.

This bath bomb helped me to feel so relaxed.   My skin felt so soft afterwards and I could smell the scent on me even after I had got out of the bath.  It’s quite a strong scent that I wouldn’t usually go for but it did help me to relax.   I would imagine this bath bomb would be perfect to use before bed.  I’m not the best at describing scents, but to my uneducated nose it’s a sweet, flowery musk.   

Shoot For the Stars is definitely a new favourite for me, and I will definitely repurchase again.  I am very sad to learn it’s a Christmas exclusive.  It needs to be available all year round!  Never fear, I will just desperately hoard it like I do with Snow Fairy.

What’s your favourite LUSH bath bomb?  Do you have any Christmas only favourites?

    That looks like a very relaxing bath. I recently tried out the Intergalactic bath bomb, and it was just the most beautiful bath I’d ever seen. I sat there cupping the water in my hands for a good 10 minutes, looking at all the colours and sparkles!

    This is one of my absolute favourite bath bombs, I stocked up on loads last year and will be sure to do the same again this year!
    Though if you don’t rinse the bath out pretty quickly that silver shimmer can be a nightmare to clean up! :)
