Lush Space Girl Bath Ballistic
Advantages: Smells great, glittery, relaxing
Disadvantages: Popping candy isn't very impressive
For anyone who is not aware what a Bath Ballistic is, it is basically a bath bomb. A solid yet slightly powdery lump that is dropped into a hot bath and fizzes and disolves. They come in different colours and scents and some of the Lush ones include other special things to make your bath that little bit more fun. Lush ballistics normally contain essential oils or other ingredients that are benificial.
Space Girl is a purple ballistic, which is in the shape of a space ship. It is covered in glitter, so girly and fun in appearance. I first used Space Girl when it first appeared in Lush stores, probably about a year ago now. I was attracted to the glitter and also the price tag of £1.85. Whilst this may not sound cheap, with most Lush ballistics almost hitting the £3 mark, it was certainely a cheaper alternative.
The best way I can describe the smell of Space Girl is to say it smells to me just like parma violets (as in the old school sweets.) Pretty much everyone I know who's used it or smelt it has said exactly the same so it's not just me! The main ingredients are violet and bergamot, but like I said, just smells exactly like parma violets to me. I actually find this a really lovely smell, reminds me of being a child, and is a yummy and sweet fragrance.
As I mentioned earlier, the Space Girl ballistic is glittery, and I was also told in the store that it contained popping candy. I have used a ballistic from Lush before that contained popping candy, which could be heard loudly popping and crackling as the ballistic dissolved. I can't say I have really found that with Space Girl, just a few occasional crackles that you would probably only hear if you were listening out for them. Apart from that, my experience with Space Girl has been good, it fizzes really well and leaves the water slightly purple, but doesn't mark the bath afterwards, like some of the brighter coloured ballistics do. The water smells delicious after the bath bomb has finished fizzing and is lovely to bathe in. It is quite a relaxing bath bomb, and after I've used it I love the smell it leaves on my skin-as well as a bit of glitter!
I enjoy this bath ballistic, but it has been a bigger hit with my sister-who is five years old. She absolutely loves this bath bomb and always asks whether I have brought her one whenever I visit. She likes to wait until the bath has finished running and she is in it, before dropping the bath bomb in. She then takes great fascination in picking the ballistic up every few seconds to see how the spaceship is getting smaller and smaller as it dissolves! She also loves the purple colour and the glitter.
To conclude, I definitely recommend this product, to all ages it would seem! Especially to girly girls who like glitter and sweet smells. I give it 4 stars as I love it, but think there are some slightly better bath ballistics at Lush.
Summary: A fab bathtime treat for girly girls
