Lush Golden Egg Easter bath bomb melt

When I attended a Lush event earlier this month Golden Egg was one of the products that was demonstrated to me and despite usually avoiding over glittery products as much as possible I knew I had to try this one out myself.

Lush Golden Egg Easter bath melt and bomb

I believe Golden Egg is quite an unusual product because it's actually a bath melt with a bath bomb hiding in the middle. Lush call it a bath bomb melt but as the bath bomb is only a small part of it I prefer to call it a melt. Although this does look like an incredibly glittery product this only actually has a thin layer of glitter on the outside. In fact if you look at them closely in store they do look a little 'bald' in places because the more they are handled and picked up the more glitter transfers to peoples' fingers and away from the product. There is also some glitter all the way through as this melts but there's much less than appears from the outside. In terms of what's inside this one (apart from glitter) there is SLS but there's also Fair Trade Columbian cocoa butter (which is higher up the list of ingredients than SLS), sweet wild orange oil, bergamot oil, Fair Trade olive oil and almond oil. 

One of the reasons why I wanted this was because as far as I'm aware this is one of the longest lasting bath products you can get your hands on at Lush. I timed this from dropping it into my bath until the last little bits disappeared and it was around 16 minutes. Considering most of their bath bombs last a couple of minutes, maybe five minutes at the most, I think this is amazing. I decided to go for the ultimate Easter weekend treat bath and first popped in my last ring from my Five Gold Rings bubble bar from Christmas and then popped this in. At first I was a little disappointed as Golden Egg didn't appear to be doing an awful lot, but it just takes a little while to get warmed up.


As soon as you drop this in it throws off all the glitter on the outside and gets to work melting away. To begin with the melting is minimal but after a few minutes you start to get quite a lot of white froth with patches of yellow in it. It also produces the most amazing little patches of yellow tinged bubbles that look like honeycomb. The picture above isn't the best but I wanted to show you the bubbles. I took a magazine to the bath with me to read but while this was doing it's thing I was kind of transfixed by it and watched it until the last few bits disappeared. It also released it's gorgeous toffee scent but I did keep it up towards my face so I could smell this. 

The one that was demonstrated in store visibly changed once it got to the bath bomb part right in the centre and started to fizz rather than melt but mine didn't make this change so I'm not sure if my bath bomb part was missing. I really didn't mind though because I enjoyed the product anyway without that part. This is quite an oily one so you will need to rinse your bath down afterwards (also for all the glitter sat on the bottom of the bath) and you can really feel the oil on your skin when you get out of the bath. So it's a great one for a skin conditioning bath if you have dry skin.

This might not be available any more as it is an Easter limited edition but I'm pretty sure this was a returning product this year and hopefully it will return again next year. At £3.95 it is a little expensive for just one bath, but I would say it's totally worth it. 

Did you try anything from the Lush Easter range?

  2. I like that they last longer as I do find lush a bit expensive per bath but with this it sounds like you at least get your money's worth. Good, honest review.

    1. They can be a bit expensive per bath, I guess because they're a bit of an indulgence, but I don't mind if you do actually get something for your money. Thanks lovely! x

    1. Yes I guess you could cut the bath bombs up to make them a little more cost effective x

  5. This looks so pretty, but I don't want to spend an hour relaxing in the bath, only to get out and have to clean it down! :')

    1. It is quite frustrating but I think a quick rinse down did the job. I'm sure mum will tell me off though next time she cleans the bath if it didn't! x
