This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs
Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*
However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.
Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.
Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.
And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.
I SEE you Sex Bomb shower gel! ❤️

I love the creamy goodness of the Lush Turmeric Latte bath bomb, so i was excited to get the shower gel.
Upon examination i was surprised there wasn’t glitter in this particular shower gel, since the bath bomb makes TONS of gold glitter in the bath water.
The scent is one of those sort of non-descript scents. Its a cross between perfume-y and food-y.
It smells like a combination of mens cologne and pie.
So its a very different kind of scent. It’s scent does seem to cling onto the skin long after my shower. I can smell it on my arma couple of hours after my shower.
Since turmeric latte isn’t made with coffee, nor chocolate it doesnt smell like an American Cafe Latte. Turmeric is a spice used in indian cooking and other foods. Its what lends the golden color.
Tumeric latte is made with golden milk.
And thats what this scent smells like.
While i like it and will use it, i don’t love it. Its nice and confitioning to my skin, moreso than the other Lush shower gels. And its consistency is nice and thick.

Some days i think it a 4, and other days i think its a 3.
This is one of six shower gels that Lush made just because, from our favorite in-store bath bombs.
While im quite enamored with the woody, fruity scent of the bath bomb, the scent in the shower gel doesnt quite translate tjat similarly. That said its still a good smelling shower gel. It translates to a straight up bubble gum scent.
The look of the bomb is a rainbow of bright colors, and so the bath bombs scent is also multi layered with contrasting notes of woodiness and fruitiness.
The shower gel isnt quite as much of a mixture of notes as it is a muddiness of scents. Intetestingly this blending becomes bubblegum.
My husband is even less impressed by this shower gel, he does NOT like the scent. He says it smells like bad breath. Yikes. I dont get that at all but your mileage may vary. *closes the lid of the bottle with a loud snap*
Its a nice thick bright orange shower gel.
It doesnt have glitter because the bath bomb has no glitter.
If you like bubblegum scents you’ll love this shower gel.

Lush made six shower gels from six popular bath bombs. Intergalactic being one of the six.
The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of
Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.
The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent.
But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️
In this short video clipi show the gels consistency by pouring it in a bowl.

I am very excited that Lush included Guardian of the Forest in their newest ‘we’re making shower gels of your favorite bath bombs just because’.
As i state in my video i think of GOTF as a new classic Lush green scent. Its both deep green but also bright with cypress.
Its a translucent gel. I was somewhat disppointed that it doesnt have glitter since the bath bomb has emerald green glitter but its not a huge deal because im just glad to have a nice green smelling shower gel to enjoy!
It smells like I’m in a forest or a fairy glade only not quite as woody as the bath bomb.
Rosewood, oakmoss, cypress, and lime.
The gel is nice and thick and it lathers up nicely on my skin.
Its such a soothing, grounding scent.
“The forest is alive. Can you hear the trees whispering the secrets of the earth to you? They beckon you onward. Feel the carpet of cool, thick moss beneath your bare feet as citrus sunlight breaks through the trees ahead, gilding the world in dappled gold and green. Follow the footsteps of a mysterious creature and emerge into a clearing, a trickling waterfall in a glade of rosewood and cypress – the heart of the forest. Let the ethereal tranquility surround you as you step beneath the water, earthy oakmoss and cleansing lime washing away any trace of the world beyond. It’s just you and the trees.”
