Metamorphosis: A Mini Lush Review

This bath bomb totally looks like the Death Star, right?  Actually, wait, before any big time Star Wars fans start nerding at me about the placement of the exhaust port amidst all of those little concave notches, I’ll amend my statement to say this bath bomb totally looks like Spaceship Earth, right?!  For those who don’t speak Disney-ese, that’s the name of the attraction that resides within the giant geodesic dome at the front gates of Epcot. The ride is basically a journey through the history of human communications – a very, very slow journey.  It also features some of the most disturbingly lifelike – and just plain disturbing – animatronics in any Disney park (and there really are so very many to choose from.)  But it’s essentially 20 minutes of darkened, seated, gently moving air conditioning, which means there will always be a place for it in Florida.

Anyhow, with its little speckled dimples, I think this Metamorphosis bath bomb from Lush looks like Spaceship Earth.  The ride is sometimes affectionately referred to as The Big Ball of Boring, which is also apt when describing this bath bomb – cool outward appearances aside, this one didn’t have much zing.  Again. This is kind of becoming a trend with my bath bombs, and a highly regrettable one at that – I don’t like it when the insides don’t match up with the super cool outsides.

While I didn’t love the scent of Metamorphosis, fans of the Lord of Misrule line (a black pepper, vanilla and patchouli fragrance) will find its spicy scent quite pleasant.  And while I also didn’t love that this bath bomb puttered out in a little under a minute – again – I did appreciate the deeply unusual colour combination, an odd assortment of charcoal grey, mustard yellow, baby pink and, right at the very end, a tiny puff of grass green.

At the moment the Metamorphosis bath bomb is an online-only purchase.  It retails for $8.95 Canadian.

  1. Ah a fast fizzer, the nemesis of the bomb world. Well, ya know I don’t get into these ceremonial baths too much but I’ve seen the Spaceship Earth around and was wowed by the cool design. Have you ever chopped one of these bad boys in half to view the layers, cause I’m oddly yearning to do so? Probably just me.
    LOM is my type of scent too. Too much gray likely subdued the lot. However, your bubbles outperformed a bomb I recently tried by about ten-fold, so I do get the appeal of an ultra bubbly fizzer, but from my bathtub, this doesn’t look half bad.

    • Like a jawbreaker! No, I’ve never broken one apart before, because I fear it’ll just shatter. But now that you mention it, I’ve got a partially broken one in my bathroom – dropped him on the floor. He’s not in horrible shape, but he could certainly be my beauty guinea pig, MWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let me get back to you on that one.

      I’m starting to think you might be into some low level destruction, though, hmm? You know what I’ve always wanted to do? Squeeze out an entire tube of toothpaste into the sink, just like Ramona Quimby. Like cutting a bath bomb in half, it seems like it would be weirdly illicit.

      • No low level destructor here, I’m a good gal. I just enjoy looking at the insides of things…er, that sounds creepy. What I mean is I like cross-sections.
        Classic Ramona! She was a completely unintentional troublemaker.
