In my opinion, this has to be one of Lush’s most beautiful bath bombs. If you ever want to find yourself amongst the cosmos, this is the one to use.
That’s right. Today we’re talking about Lush’s Intergalactic.
I’ve seen Intergalactic before but never gave it a try, concerned about whether or not it would stain my tub since it looks like the bomb that might. To be fair, however, I haven’t had much of a staining issue with bath bombs like I had when I first tried Lush many years ago. I don’t know if they’ve changed their pigments or what but there’s no anticlimactic bathtub scrubbing after bath time even more (sans the jelly for the jelly baths bombs but even then it cleans easily).
The scent of peppermint oil really masks any of the grapefruit scents, though you can still pick up the vetiver (slightly) and the cedarwood (more than the vetiver). It’s not a sickly sweet fake peppermint scent either. This is the real deal and it smells great!
Peppermint Oil: Cooling, relieves sore muscles, improves focus and energizes.
Grapefruit Oil: Uplifting, energizing, and invigorating
Vetiver Oil: Calming and grounding
Cedarwood Oil: Comforting and uplifting with a warm aroma
This one is absolutely fibromyalgia friendly thanks to the cooling sensation of the peppermint and it absolutely worked to soothe my muscles. The rest of the oils provide an incredible aromatherapy experience that touches on a lot of the negative mental side effects that comes with fibromyalgia.
From such stimulating oils, I would rate this as a bath bomb to use in the daytime. They say the cedar wood and vetiver are there to balance out everything but, even so, the peppermint really dominates it all. When you get out of the bath, you’re going to smell minty. For me, that’s not a quote on quote “relaxing” scent that’s going to get me to get to bed. It’s a really alive and awakening scent that’s going to start my day off on a good note.
The bomb turns the water a bright sparkling blue with a LOT of glitter. On the surface of the water, you have the neon pink and yellow floating and blending with the creamy white. The white suds reminded me of the Milky Way galaxy.
The bomb didn’t stain my tub but left a ton of glitter residue. This was easy to clean up by turning the shower on. The glitter stuck to my body but being someone who has been nicknamed “Sparkly Boy”, I’m perfectly content with glitter.
I rate Intergalactic a sold 5/5. This is a repeat, for sure and I really wish that Lush would make more products with this scent.
