Anonymous' 'The Bath Of Legends' Cocktail

As someone who hoards mostly seasonal and limited edition releases, it's great that the majority of cocktails you suggest to me contain these sorts of items. However, as a regular consumer who can only purchase what is available in the shops, this can mean that trying out these cocktails are near-on impossible.
When a number of Lush fans asked me to demonstrate a couple of regular, readily-available bathing experiences, I was more than happy to oblige, and I can assure you that I will be including far more of these in the future to satisfy every type of Lushie - new or established.
Gold Goddess is not only made up of regular products, but it's simplistic to boot - meaning that it's a great value cocktail and one that can be enjoyed time and time again. Featuring only two ingredients, both of which can be halved or quartered depending on how conservative you're feeling, this cocktail offers a wonderful experience - one suitable for any time of the year and for any and every mood.
Begin by crumbling a third of a Sunnyside Bubble Bar under the running tap. This is probably the most featured item when it comes to Lush cocktails, and for many reasons. Firstly, the wonder orange aroma is fresh and uplifting - it's strong enough to remain with you throughout the whole bath, but also light enough to not be at all cloying on the senses.
Not only this but it turns the water into a stunning haven of golden water and thick, luscious swirls of lustre - the latter of which will not turn you into a glitter ball and will rinse away easily with the water. Furthermore, the bubble bar is incredibly softening so you'll feel your skin improving within minutes of climbing into the bath.
Once the water has finished running, add in the Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb. By itself, this can be a rather boring bath bomb, but with the Sunnyside it adds a sweet, zesty layer of lemon sherbet that compliments the orange perfectly.
Together, these two just work. They create a stunning looking experience - one that will leave you feeling like royalty; they're both strong enough that neither thwarts the other - instead complimenting each other and producing a well-rounded experience; and they both soften the water so you'll leave the tub feeling like a completely new person.
Something so simplistic shouldn't be this good, but it really is. This 'easily to construct' cocktail has become a firm favourite of mine and I enjoy at least one of these a month. If you're looking for something to raise your spirits, moisturise your body and leave you well and truly satisfied, this is the cocktail for you!
