Review // Lush Oxford Street Exclusives pt I

Ooh, Lush! Lovely, lovely Lush! I was super excited to visit Lush Oxford Street a few weeks ago and managed to get my hands on a few of the exclusive products, although not nearly all 200+! One day, perhaps!

In the photo above, you can also see Superbalm and Rub Rub Rub which I won't be reviewing here as they're not exclusives (and I've already reviewed Rub Rub Rub) but, let me tell you, that tub is the size of my face!

If I had to sum up the Lush Oxford Street exclusives in one word, it would be "glitter". I get the feeling that there's someone in the factory saying "You know what would make this better? GLITTER!" If you're not a fan of sparkly bath bombs, I'd stay well away! 

Cyanide Pill Bath Bomb
The interestingly named, and shaped, Cyanide Pill is a larger than most other bath bombs, but I plonked it all in at once nonetheless! It's quite a fast fizzer and the inside reveals popping candy and a secret purple centre with silver lustre, rather than glitter, which sticks to the skin forever. It turns the bath a rather unpleasant yellow colour but the fragrance is warm and almost soapy. 

Frozen Bath Bomb
Savvy move, Lush! Frozen is beautiful as it dissolves, turning from icy blue to azure in the water and filling the bath with more of that silver lustre which, again, is impossible to remove. The fragrance is musky but with a citrus undertone which gives it more of a fresh feeling, to go along with the Frozen theme I guess!

Golden Slumbers Bath Bomb
I was really excited to try this based on the name alone. It conjured up ideas of being gently lulled to sleep and didn't disappoint. The lavender is quite heady and musky, which I found to be really sleep-inducing. Of course it has glitter but this time, as the name suggests, it's golden.

Guardian of the Forest Bath Bomb
Guardian of the Forest is a more earthy, woody bath bomb, with notes of sandalwood, vetivert and possibly some violet. Unlike most of the other bath bombs, there was no glitter in this and it turned the bath water a gorgeous, deep shade of emerald. 

Intergalactic Bath Bomb
This. Is. My. Favourite. Oh my goodness, it's amazing! Not only does it look gorgeous but it smells incredible- a pure peppermint that is so strong, I could virtually taste it! There's also a slight floral basenote which may be jasmine. Super refreshing! I imagine it's called Intergalactic because once it's dissolved, the whole bath turns a deep turquoise filled with popping candy and silver glitter that makes it look like the night sky. It's absolutely magical and I will definitely be stocking up next time I go to London!

Lava Lamp Bath Bomb
Of all the products I have ever tried in Lush, this has to be one of the most unusual. It's a very fast fizzer but the purple spots dissolve much less quickly. These melt away into an almost inky, or oily, consistency and sit on top of the bathwater. This purple liquid is really silky and made my skin feel super soft but unfortunately it also stained my skin and the bath which kind of defeats the point of having a bath! However, the strong grapefruit scent is lovely and it remains on the skin for hours afterwards.

May Day Bath Bomb
Ok, May Day isn't an exclusive, but I love it too much to ignore! A wonderfully warm vanilla-lemon scent that recalls lemon meringue pie and has a buttery feel. Although I reviewed this one last year, I've only just realised that it's probably named after Brian May of Queen/ badger-saving fame, rather than the month. Although this bath bomb turns the water cloudy, there is no colour and the secret inside is a little different from last year!

The Experimenter Bath Bmb
This bath bomb is amazing because a) it's a tetradecahedron (polyhedrons, yo!) and b) it looks just like this skirt! While it dissolves, the different colours create a tie-dye effect which is mesmerising to watch but, unfortunately, turn a really miserable grey once it's fully dissolved. Of course this bath bomb has glitter too but this time it's a mixture of gold and silver, and the fragrance is one of musky lavender, similar to Golden Slumbers.

Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb
Yoga Bomb has a really warming, almost spicy fragrance but, once dissolved, the bath water turns a shade of brown-orange that is just like bathing in fake tan. Thankfully it doesn't stain your skin though! Like every other products, this one is heavy on the gold glitter so be prepared!

As I type, I am still yet to try out all of the products I bought, hence the reason I've divided it into two posts. Keep an eye out for my next one. I'll certainly enjoy reviewing the rest of my haul!


  1. I went there recently and im in love with all the new products.
    Have you tried the new face masks?

  2. Oh my goodness that is far too many new Lush amazing items for me to handle in one sitting - glad you split it into two posts :) I have to say the two I want to try the most are probably guardian of the forest and the experimenter (mainly because of the shape and colour awesomeness)! I am not a lover of peppermint which is a shame as the intergallactic sounds great.
    Thanks for sharing your haul but it now means I need to get down there to check it out for myself!

  3. These all look amazing! I'm dying to go visit the shop so I can check them all out for myself.

  4. Now that is a haul! There's something ridiculously satisfying about looking at pictures of bath bombs, Intergalactic looks and sounds uhhmazing! Jealous of your epic tub of Rub Rub Rub. It's one of my all time fave Lush scents. The scrub's pretty decent too. I recently picked up the Comforter and the Yuzu and Cocoa shower creams, in Helsinki of all places. They're both seriously good! Fab post x

  5. these all look amazing, I need to visit but then I don't know which to pick! x

  6. Wow loads to take in Becky! I'm not too far from London actually so when I pop in I will definitely swing by Lush. Intergalactic sounds right up my street, mmm peppermint. x

  7. These bombs looks bloody amazing!, x

  8. I'm so sad you can only get these in the London store as I'd love to get my hands on them! One day I'll make it down! :)
