Goldrush Bath Bomb

Given how many new bath bombs Lush have released recently, it's safe to say that when I purchased what is perhaps my largest order in years, I certainly didn't check sizes or prices when I did so. For this reason, when my huge box of bath bits arrived, I was rather taken back by the minuscule size of some of the products inside.

Seeing Goldrush Bath Bomb for the first time will be a little shocking for anyone committed enough to give Lush a hefty £5.95 for the privilege of using one of these. Matching up to the size of the Butterball Bath Bomb, which measures roughly 5cm in diameter, it's safe to say that I expected there to be a genuine gold ring inside to justify the price for such a small amount of ingredients.

However, after finally trying this out for size, I found myself swallowing everything I had initially made judgement on, as this bath bomb is simply stunning in every way. Lush has proven once again that size really doesn't matter, and that actually great things can come from the smallest of gestures.

What it beautiful about Goldrush is firstly the gorgeous shade of blue that the bath bomb sports. After fully dissolving in the water, this vivid blue colour entices the whole tub and turns it into a stunning blue haven that you'll want to lay in for hours and hours. It's one of those bath bombs that produces a colour set apart from any other: you really should experience it for yourself to understand what I mean. 

Secondly, the hallmark stamp that features on top of the bath bomb is made of rich, buttery shea butter, and lots of glitter. This not only infuses the water with a velvety level of moisture that leaves your skin feeling super replenished and nourished afterwards, but creates shimmery waves of lustre under the surface. These pulsate with any movement from yourself, and look simply beautiful when you're submerged beneath the water.

Scent wise, Goldrush contains a combination of grapefruit, rosemary and geranium oils; not to mention the shea and cocoa butters that add moisture alongside these. The fragrance on offer here is a warm but gentle fruity smell, with both a floral and herbal element underneath this. The grapefruit is rather spritely here, while the geranium adds a delicate powdery floral note; and the rosemary offers an alluring herbal note at the very bottom of the mix. While not the strongest fragrance I have experienced in a bath bomb format, it holds its own in the water, and I could smell it during the whole time I was in the tub.

Upon being placed in the water, Goldrush gets to work at sending out beautiful maybes of thick, blue foam: transforming the water into the beautiful haven that I mentioned above. As the bath bomb begins to dissolve and get smaller, both gold and blue lustre begin to ebb across the surface and create beautiful bath art that is a real pleasure to watch.

What is great about this miniature beauty is that you can see little drops of both the shea and cocoa butter on the surface while you bathe. Far from being an oily experience, your skin is transformed within a matter of minutes, and you're left with a softness that lasts for days. For such a small bath bomb, it's amazing what this little fella can achieve for both your bath and your body.

Ultimately, there is a small part of me that feels as if I should have gotten more 'stuff' for my money. However, the rational part of me is there to remind me that I got more than many large bath bombs have ever offered, and everything aside from the size was on par with being a perfect bath bomb. In fact, this is the only reason why I haven't afford it the full marks.

Would I buy this again? If my review hasn't convinced you that my answer is a solid yes, the confirmation that I will definitely be putting a few more of these in my basket will surely remove any doubt.  This is definitely one that Lush fans need to invest in for themselves: you won't be disappointed.
