Are Bomb Cosmetics Bath Blasters Better Than Lush?

Are Bomb Cosmetics Bath Blasters Better Than Lush?

Let’s rewind back to Boxing Day; Lush held their annual sale and everyone lost their shit. The site crashed and consumers were in despair. A flurry of raging messages were sent to the Lush’s main Twitter account. How were we supposed to get our hands on discounted bath treats now? Enter Bomb Cosmetics.

Whilst this frenzy was happening, Bomb Cosmetics had a sale going on too. With more choice and a website that loaded, I decided to treat myself to a ‘Santa Says Relax’ Gift Set. Seven exciting bath bombs all wrapped up in a neat sack for just a tenner. So, how did they compare?


Lush’s bath bombs range anywhere from £3.00 to £5.00, Bomb Cosmetics’ ‘Bath Blasters’ retail at £2.99. Some even go for as little as £2.29. I thought seven for a tenner was an absolute bargain. Seven at their normal price would be just under £21.00 though. In terms of gift sets, we all know at Lush you can shop a whole range. The prices vary but at Bomb Cosmetics they are more or less the same.


This is where I am conflicted. Bomb Cosmetics’ blasters blew me away. They are so gorgeous, they look good enough to eat! This is definitely an Instagram-ready product, which is of course every blogger’s dream. On the surface, they seem to be more appealing than Lush. They’re cheaper, prettier and more photogenic. However, I do feel you get what you pay for with Lush. Their bath bombs generally do more to your bath, so if you’re after bombs for photographic purposes you should probably buy from them. That being said, I still felt like I was pampering myself when using Bomb’s. Side note: I was left feeling irrationally angry when I used ‘All That Glitters’ though. The glitter got stuck to my body and was dangerously close to entering my vagina. Didn’t help that I was on my period.

Customer service

The customer service at Lush is obviously second to none. Sometimes the staff are a little annoying but they’re just doing their jobs. If you ever have any questions or are after recommendations, you can count on them for sure. Unfortunately, Bomb Cosmetics oversold this gift set. I wasn’t really bothered as they still sent me the bombs, I just didn’t get the sack. They took quite a while to get in contact with me to tell me this but I assume they had a lot to get through. I was pleased that they offered to make an additional sack but declined as I just wanted the bombs.

Will I buy again?

I think I will definitely be shopping at Bomb Cosmetics again, I’ll just avoid glittery bombs from now on. As well as bath treats, they also have a range of other product on offer. I definitely want to try of their handmade soaps and face/body stuff. Their gift sets look great too.

Final thoughts

I generally find Lush to be a bit pricey. In terms of skincare and other products, I have never been that impressed. I think Bomb Cosmetics is a great alternative as it’s a lot cheaper. It all depends what you’re after in a bath bomb though. If you want to walk into a store and pick some up at ease, go to Lush. After something that will give you results you can stick on Instagram, go to Lush. Bomb Cosmetics are great for products that will leave you feeling pampered. Some of their bath bombs feature toppings that will moisturise your skin and leave you feeling super relaxed. I’m sure Lush have some too, they’re just more expensive.

    This is a great review – honest & fair!

    Honestly, I’ve been looking for a review for this company and their products from someone I trusted for a while. They’ve been saved in my bookmarks for what feels like forever, but I don’t think I’ve seen anyone proper review them, so this was lovely to see.

    I, honestly, had to release a sigh of relief because it does seem like it’s a good company with good products like I thought it was. They remind me of e.l.f cosmetics, in a way. They’re a cheaper alternative and, for a while, people worried about their quality, but it turned out they were just as quality.

    Looks like I’ll be buying and testing them out when I move into my new place finally. (There’s no tub at my current place. The blasphemy!)

    Thank you for the honest review, love! ❤

    I really want to try Bomb Cosmetics. I’ve been a Lushie almost as long as I’ve been a blogger (nearly two years now!) After seeing so much love for Lush in the blogosphere I went in and tried a few things and fell in love. But they are pricey, and their gift sets especially. I bought one for a giveaway which was a piece of soap and a shower gel, I think, and it was £10.95!! Seven bath bombs for a tenner is bloody good, in my opinion. So I’ll definitely be giving Bomb Cosmetics a go; I’ll just avoid the glittery ones! Haha.

    Bomb Cosmetics is definitely as good as Lush. I usually treat myself to a couple when I go to Centre Parcs as a special treat but Lush will always have a place in my heart 🙂 xx

    My boyfriend’s mum got me some Bomb Cosmetics for Christmas. They look and smell gorgeous but when I used one in a bath I was running for my boyfriend I noticed it was full of tiny gold foil stars. He wasn’t bothered but I wouldn’t be happy with them getting near my vag and I did worry about how bad it must be for the environment with all those stars ending up down the plug hole. Looking forward to using the non-glittery ones though!
