Lush's shoot for the stars review

When I do baths, I do them right. I'm talking a complete relaxation routine. I'm talking candles, books and a plethora of scented liquids. I'm talking all of the Lush products that I can possibly afford to pour/drop/crumble into my bath. When it comes to winter though, my baths step it up a gear.

As soon as December hits I spend quite an extortionate amount of money on Lush products. I'm just obsessed with their Christmas range every year! Considering I spend approximately an hour and a half in the bath at a time (no joke) I don't consider it a waste of money. So while I was present shopping on Black Friday, the glorious smell drew me in and I couldn't resist picking up a bath bomb. My logic was that you have to relax after the serious cardio that is Christmas shopping. It also gave me the opportunity to write my first review of this kind. See, two birds, one stone!


The bath bomb I went for this time was Shoot for the stars. I was drawn in by two factors. Firstly, that scent. It has the same smell as the "honey I washed the kids" soap - a gorgeous blend of caramel and sweet orange. Secondly, it claimed it would make my bath water look like a night sky! How could I resist that

At first, I'll be honest, it didn't make my bath water look anything like a midnight sky. It kind of just turned into a swirl of pastel colours. But hey, that's good too. Once it settled down and was finished fizzing (I'd say it took about five minuted) it did leave me with a dark blue/purple shimmering bath of wonderfulness though, which made me sublimely happy.

I can't say that shoot for the stars is particularly moisturising or bodes any such qualities, but it did leave my skin shimmery. I was like a walking diamond! I left the bath feeling shiny and smelling beautiful, which is all  I can ask for in a Lush product really.
