15 Iconic Products Lush Can't Keep on Its Shelves
Lush has developed a cult following for its seemingly ever-growing (not to mention Instagram-friendly) supply of handmade body care and cosmetics. While there's certainly no shortage of new and buzzworthy products (a Harry Potter Jelly Bath Bomb and fidget spinner are among the latest), there are certain hero products that have managed to steal the hearts of consumers — and keep them — some over several decades.
From the otherworldy bath bomb that remains supreme (the brand sold over 1.7 million in the past year alone) to one mmm-mesmerizing bath oil (and some serious #bathart fodder in between), read on for 15 products that keep Lushies coming back time and time again, along with insider tidbits on what makes them so darn special.
Intergalactic Bath Bomb
This bright idea of a bath bomb, inspired by Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, remains Lush's top seller, with over 1.7 million sold in the past year alone. Pop one in your tub and let your mind wander to the swirling of neon hues and head-clearing scents like peppermint and vetivert.
Get ready to blush. Coming in close second with over 1.2 million sold this year is none other than Lush's Sex Bomb. Named after a Tom Jones song (and recently sent to Harry Styles), it's infused with aphrodisiacs such as ylang-ylang, clary sage, and jasmine topped off with romantic rice paper flower.
Sex Bomb ($8)
Butterball Bath Bomb
This oldie is consistently proving itself a goodie, remaining one of Lush's bestsellers over several decades. Add it to your bath routine when you need an extra boost of hydration. It's formulated with large flecks of fair-trade organic cocoa butter for moisturizing skin as it works up a creamy, vanilla-scented froth.
Butterball Bath Bomb ($5)
Twilight Bath Bomb
Twilight was launched alongside the brand's Dragon's Egg and Fizzbanger in 2012, and it has remained a favorite ever since. Lush also attributes the soothing sizzler to sparking the bath-art-sharing craze now synonymous with the brand.
Twilight Bath Bomb ($7)
Avobath Bath Bomb
Who says you can't play with your food? This bright green fizzy is made with fresh avocados and organic extra-virgin olive oil for ultimate hydration, while a blend of baking soda and intoxicating essential oils (like bergamot and lemongrass) cleanses and energizes skin for a refreshing boost.

Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb
This bath bomb is master of the slow burn, dissolving slowly to release layers of white clouds infused with uplifting scents like bergamot and lemon. Once the center is revealed, it begins cracking (like an egg hatching) and releasing a stream of gold sparkles.
The Experimenter Bath Bomb
One of the brand's most colorful bath bombs to date, The Experimenter features bright shades like pink and blue paired with glitter for a technicolor (read: Instagram-worthy) performance every time. The infusion of fair-trade vanilla is also incredibly soothing before bed.
Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb
Don't be fooled by its playful physique — this bath bomb was designed to help parents get their kids relaxed for bed. Even grown-ups will have a hard time resisting the calming powers of essential oils such as chamomile, sandalwood, and lavender.
Lava Lamp Bath Bomb
Time-travel back to the '70s with this trippy concoction (introduced in 2015). Inspired by a lava lamp, the fizzer will have you entranced with its energizing blend of tangerine, orange flower, and Sicilian mandarin. It also boasts purple cocoa butter orbs for added moisture.

Charity Pot Body Lotion
One-hundred percent of every purchase of this cocoa-butter-driven lotion goes toward supporting environmental, humanitarian, and animal rights causes, both locally and around the world. Since its launch in 2007, Lush has already donated more than $18 million to over 1,400 grassroots charities in 42 countries.
Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment Luxury Bath Oil
Rounding out Lush's top 15 bestsellers is this solid bath oil. Made with real marshmallow herb, along with cocoa butter and coconut oil, the bar dissolves to release a sweet cotton candy scent and creates a pretty, sunset-like reflection.
