PUDDY HOLLY BUBBLEROON | CHRISTMAS 2018

Hey guys! As promised, I’m being more consistent with my posts! Today, I’ll be giving my thoughts on the Puddy Holly Bubbleroon, a new product for Christmas 2018. I got this from my housemate for Christmas/birthday present and I was really intrigued because it hadn’t been a particularly sought after product for me. I always seem to ignore the bubbleroons as they look quite small, but I was really impressed by this product – so I think it’s time to change my mind on the bubbleroons!

Scent ~ 

Puddy Holly has quite a buttery, luxurious scent in my opinion, quite similar to Marzipan. It contains Almond essential oil and Tonka Absolute, which has a scent similar to vanilla, giving the product it’s sweet scent. It also contains Shea butter and Cocoa butter, both of which have deep, sweet scents. There’s a hint of Bergamot oil in it as well, which gives it a more unique scent, with hints of citrus.

Appearance/aesthetics ~

This is such a cute product and it looks like a little pudding with holly and berries on top. The whole thing is covered in fine silver lustre, which gives it a very festive feel! It adds a sense of luxury to the product, which makes bath time that bit more special.

Properties ~

Since Puddy Holly contains Shea butter and Cocoa butter, it’s very nourishing for your skin and leaves your skin feeling super smooth and moisturised after your bath.

Final Thoughts ~ 

Overall, I’m really impressed with this product and it’s changed my view on bubbleroons. I’ve always thought that they don’t go as far as bigger bubble bars, like Brightside, but actually I’ve found that I could get 4 uses out of Puddy Holly, which is fairly good for a bubble bar! It’s good value for money, and at £4.95, each bath is costing you just over £1, compared to some pretty expensive baths from bath bombs!

Really enjoyed this one – hope this inspires you guys to try Puddy Holly for yourselves!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this review – stay tuned for more really soon!

CHEERY CHRISTMAS BATH BOMB | CHRISTMAS 2018

Hey guys,

I’m back with another Christmas review for you guys! This time, it’s Cheery Christmas, a new product for 2018! My housemate used this in our house and it made the whole place smell absolutely gorgeous! I was intrigued, as I’m usually not so fond on cherry scents, but this scent was really different! To my surprise, my housemate decided to buy me one for Christmas as I’d been pining after it so much! I had this bath bomb sitting in my uni room and it made it smell heavenly and so christmassy! Anyway, on with the review!

Scent ~

Cheery christmas is very sweet, with Sicilian Lemon Oil and Buchu Oil (similar to a blackcurrant scent), which gives it a refreshing scent, which smells very similar to The Comforter, a much loved Lush product of mine! It has a very sweet scent, so if that’s not for you, I wouldn’t recommend it as it’s as sweet as you can get! I’m a big fan of sweet scents this time of year, as they feel so indulgent and special.

Appearance/aesthetics ~ 

This is a deceptive little bath bomb, as it’s pink on the outside, with a white snowflake motive, but when you drop it into the bath, it erupts into blue. The pink and blue swirl together to give you beautiful purple waters! It produces really lovely bath art as it’s a slow fizzer, so it lasts for the duration of your bath.

 

Ingredients ~ 

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Buchu Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Cornstarch Sodium Coco Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Citral, Limonene, Perfume (+ loads of colours)

Final thoughts ~

This bath bomb is super gorgeous and a very welcome addition to the Lush Christmas 2018 range! It’s pretty without being overly christmassy for those who aren’t into that and it makes a lovely gift (I can vouch!) at this time of the year. If you love The Comforter, buy this now! It’s sweet with a hit of acidity and blackcurrant and it’s very luxurious and soothing. And it’s one of the cheaper bath bombs Lush offers at £3.95, so it’s perfectly acceptable to splash out for yourself too without breaking the bank!

Really hope you’ve enjoyed this Christmas Lush review! I have loads more planned so stay tuned for more festive content!

GODDESS BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hey guys!

I’m back with another exciting review! This time, I’m going to be giving my opinion on the brand new Goddess bath bomb! This is such an amazing product and it looks and smells gorgeous, so thank you so much to my friend who gifted this to me!

Scent ~

The scent of this bath bomb is so lovely and refreshing, and quite unique in my opinion! It’s a mix of Sandalwood, Oudh (a super luxurious, rich ingredient, which gives a deep, musky scent) and Jasmine Absolute. It’s a very deep, rich scent, which fits the name Goddess well, as it feels goddess-like! It also contains cocoa butter, which gives it a hint of a sweetness too!

Appearance/aesthetics ~

Goddess is a lovely lilac colour, with  a blue band around the middle and silver lustre covering the whole bomb. It has a “crater” in the centre, which gives it such a unique and intriguing shape. When Goddess hits the water it releases a gorgeous lilac colour into the bath water, with small hints of pink and  tonnes (I kid you not) of silver (plastic-free of course) lustre. It’s gorgeous and it’s super pigmented, so the colour lasts for the full duration of the bath!

GODDESS HOLDING FINAL

GODDESS BATH ART FINAL.jpg

Properties ~

It contains Fairtrade Shea butter and Colombian Cocoa butter, which are super moisturising and great for dry, tired winter skin! You can feel how soft the water is and your skin feels so, so soft and smooth for hours and hours after your bath! It’s super relaxing and a perfect addition to a winter self care routine!

Ingredients ~

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Jasmine Absolute, Osmanthus Absolute, Rose Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Oudh Oil, Cream of Tartar, Fair Trade Colombian Cocoa Butter, Water (Aqua), Cornstarch, Argan Oil, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Tin Oxide, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Maltodextrin, Laureth 4, Dipropylene Glycol, Eugenol, Limonene + Linalool (+ loads of colours)

Final thoughts ~

In conclusion, this bath bomb is B O M B (no pun intended) and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re after a super moisturising bath bomb to give your skin some love this winter! It’s a bit pricey at £5.95 each, but I think it’s a good one for a once in a while treat or as a gift to a friend or family member! If you’re unsure, ask for a cheeky demo in store to see how you feel (though I guarantee as soon as you see it you’ll fall in love and buy twelve hundred)!

 

THE WORLD’S SMALLEST DISCO | CHRISTMAS 2018

Hey guys !

So, it’s that time of the year where I’m getting really festive (and all my self control goes completely south), so here’s my first Christmas bath bomb review of 2018! I’ve got my fingers crossed that I’ll be lucky for my birthday and I’ll get a few more to review!

After a rough few days I decided to splash out and get myself something to make me feel better! I decided to go with The World’s Smallest Disco, as after seeing it being demo-ed in store, I was swayed by the gorgeous colours and the lovely smell! I was quite surprised because I usually go for sweet scents, but this one was very fresh and citrusy, with Persian Lime Oil and Grapefruit Oil. I think I was very much needing a pick me up kind of bath, so the citrus scents appealed to me! It’s got a little splash of Cognac Oil, which adds a unique undertone!

In terms of appearance, how can you fault it? It’s a gorgeous grey-black colour, with yellow, pink and blue segments, that actually separate from the main body when it hits the water – which is what creates the “disco” effect! It’s got some sparkle to it as well, which is absolutely stunning when the water turns a deep blue-black colour! It looks like a gorgeous winter night sky! Luckily it doesn’t stain the bath though!

WORLD'S SMALLEST DISCO IN TEXT IMAGE

So, overall, I’m kind of in love with this bath bomb, though it’s not going to be a regular purchase over the festive season, due to it costing an eye-watering £5.25! I’m not thrilled by Lush’s recent price increase!

But, if you’re looking for a treat for yourself (or can waggle your way into getting it for Christmas), this bath bomb is awesome and super refreshing for when you’re feeling low ebb.

Hope you enjoyed this review, there’s plenty more coming your way!

SLEEPY SHOWER GEL| CHRISTMAS 2018

Hey guys!

Sorry for the long break in posts of late, uni has been crazy and I just haven’t had the time to write posts and edit photos! My weekend hasn’t been too busy, so I thought I’d do my first Christmas review for 2018! I haven’t purchased a whole lot of the Christmas range YET, due to limited funds, but I have purchased a couple of shower gels, because I have no self-control!

I was super upset to see that Twilight wouldn’t be making a return this Christmas, but my spirits were lifted when I saw they’d released a new shower gel instead – Sleepy! I never, ever thought I’d say this, but I think I like it more than Twilight! It’s got a gorgeous colour to it and I’m just in love!

It’s part of the Twilight scent family, so the scent is the classic lavender we all know and love, but the texture is a little different and I just adore the lavender colour! It looks amazing and it lathers great! This would definitely make a gorgeous present for any lavender lovers!

Lush has been making some questionable decisions in terms of discontinuing products, but I actually think that replacing Twilight with Sleepy is a really nice idea! It revamps the Christmas line, but without taking away the iconic scent that I associate with the Christmas range! The new colour also adds an aesthetic value as well, and it fits in with the other Christmas shower gels.

Overall, Twilight-mourners, fear not, Sleepy Shower Gel is amazing and it is just as good (if not better) than Twilight!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this mini review and stay tuned for more reviews!

CANDY BUBBLE BRUSH | REVIEW

Hey guys,

I’m doing my best at the moment to revive my Lush blog, after putting a lot of effort into really hyping up my lifestyle blog. So, after a hefty spend at Lush Metrocentre, I finally have some new Lush products to review for you lovely people! Today, I’m going to be reviewing a product that I have been dying to get my hands on forever – the Candy Bubble Brush !

In my opinion, some of Lush’s newest bubble bars have been slightly questionable/disappointing (*cough cough* bubble spinners *cough cough*), I was super excited when they released the new bubble brushes! I really enjoy the bubble bars that come on a stick because I personally find them so much easier to use and I feel like they’re easier to store when wet.

I did have a look at the other bubble brushes, but the scents didn’t really appeal to me. I was looking forward to trying the Mint one, since it was rumoured to have the same scent as Intergalactic, but I personally thought the scents were just not the same. So, I only picked up the Candy one. As soon as I smelt it in store my heart soar because it smells EXACTLY  like Snow fairy, a Christmas favourite and a complete lushie fav. I absolutely adore the sweet scents from Lush and the Snow Fairy scent family is definitely one of my favourites. If you’re looking for a gorgeous vibrant pink bath, with tonnes of bubbles and smells like Snow fairy, this is the product for you! And even better, it IS mainline, unlike Snow Fairy shower gel/jelly bomb!

in bath candy bar.jpg

In terms of appearance, these bubble brushes are adorable! They look exactly like paint brushes and the sticks are much thicker and more sturdy than some of the other sticks used for bubble bars, to support it’s weight. This product would definitely make a gorgeous present!

candy bar - above bath.jpg

The bubble brushes are priced at £5.95 in the UK, which I think is a really good price, as this is a reusable bubble bar and given that I’ve used it twice, barely dipping it under the running water, it produced tonnes of bubbles and the product is still the same size!

And if that glowing review doesn’t convince you, as ever, you can pop into your local store and ask for a demo! This is not a product you’re doing to be disappointed with!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this review, I promise I’ll be a bit more consistent with this blog, as well as my other blog! I love writing these reviews and I hope you enjoy reading them!

TURTLE IMMERSION BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hey guys! I’m back, I’ve been pretty active on my lifestyle blog but I haven’t really picked up anything new Lush-wise due to some “money issues” (i.e. being a broke, unemployed student during the summer holidays). However, I did pick up this guy on my last trip to York (admittedly this was quite a while ago…) and I’ve been waiting for the intense warm weather spell the UK has been having to subside. Baths are a complete no-go when a good British summer hits – it’s shower all day every day! Anyway, about a week ago I was feeling a little bit meh and I just desperately needed a bath to soothe both my body and my soul. As this was the last bath bomb in my collection, it was an obvious choice! Plus, it’s an adorable lil bath bomb with a great #antiplasticpollution message!

This bath bomb is a jelly bomb, so it produces jelly when submerged in the water. I’ve tried a few of these before, my favourite so far being Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb, and I’ve always had mixed feelings about the “jelly” aspect of them. I found a few of them to leave an excessive amount of jelly after the bath, which was quite hard to get rid of. However, Turtle Immersion didn’t seem to have this issue. The amount of jelly produced was a lot less than some of the other jelly bombs, so perhaps Lush has listened to customer concerns over clogged drains. Or perhaps the jelly dissolves more easily – who knows?

In terms of scent, according to the Lush website, this bath bomb contains Pine Needle Absolute, Sea salt and Cypress Oil, giving it a very fresh scent. However, I’m going to be 100% honest, the scent reminded me of toilet cleaner 😦 This could just be me though, so I wouldn’t let this put you off – give it a sniff in store perhaps to see what you think. I think it all depends on your personal preferences.

I’d describe the bath bomb as a moderate fizzer, not too fast that the show is over almost immediately, but not slow enough that it still isn’t dissolved at the end of your bath. The gorgeous green and blue colours really did produce a wonderful display in the bath and the added bonus of the jelly made it even more interesting and intriguing to watch. I found the jelly to be super moisturising and I personally used the chunks to moisturise my arms and legs. It left my skin feeling very hydrated and refreshed – something my skin was desperately in need of!

Overall, I did enjoy this bath bomb, however I don’t think I’d repurchase it, as the scent just didn’t really appeal to me and I did find it to be a bit too pricey for what it was (£6.95), although I’m aware other jelly bath bombs are similarly priced. Personally, I’d definitely pop into your local store and see what you think about the scent yourself! I think the design of it is really novel and would make a really cute gift!

MARMALADE JELLY BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hi guys, sorry for the massive lack of posts over the last few months. I’d blab on about uni work and Christmas etc. but really I think I’ve just been lacking some motivation! But, I’m back and today I’m going to be talking about the Marmalade jelly bath bomb! After past experiences, I’ve been a little skeptical about jelly bath bombs, just because of how messy they are/how disappointing they sometimes are. However, when I received Marmalade as a Christmas present from my parents, I was pretty darn excited to give it a go (mainly due to my immense fondness of Paddington Bear, despite being now being 20).

As with all of Lush’s jelly bath bombs, Marmalade has received some mixed reviews. On the LUSH UK app, it has an overall average rating of only 2 stars, which I do find a little harsh! The main criticism again being the presence of the jelly itself. I did have the same opinion for Big Sleep, but I found Marmalade to be pretty moderate on the jelly, which is definitely something I preferred. The jelly was still obviously present in the water, but it didn’t seem to cause me any problems in terms of blocking the plughole or staining the bath tub. I really enjoyed the jelly aspect actually, especially with the lovely orange scent (though some people have likened the scent to disinfectant – another fact I disagree with).

I thought the display in the bath was really quite pretty, with the yellow, orange and reds. It was a fast fizzer as well, which I personally find to be much more exciting to watch.

MARMALADE FINAL 1.jpg

I also really loved the addition of orange slices within the bath bomb, which gave the bath a spa-like vibe.

MARMALADE FINAL 3.jpg

Overall, I really enjoyed this bath bomb and I’d definitely purchase this again! It’s got a lovely citrus-y scent (which really lifts the mood on a dull day), turns your bath water a beautiful deep orange and the jelly really does look like marmalade! The overall design of the bath bomb is absolutely adorable and definitely suitable for the little bear in the blue jacket and red hat!

I’d say this is one of the more expensive bath bombs (£4.95), but it’s the same price as all the other jelly bath bombs. I’d say it’s definitely worth the money though. If you’re still unsure, ask for a demo in-store!

Ingredients:

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sodium Alginate, Grapefruit Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Orange Flower Absolute, Orange Slice Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Limonene, Linalool, Hydroxycitronellal, Citral, Geraniol, Perfume, Colour 47005, Colour 14700, Colour 45410

Hope you’ve enjoyed this review & don’t worry, I promise I’ll try to be more consistent this year! ❤

WHAT I BROUGHT TO UNI | LUSH EDITION

Hi guys! Sorry for the slight absence in pots at the moment. I’ve recently moved to university and this first week here has been quite hectic! I’m finally settling in and getting used to things, so I thought I’d sit down and write this post. I wanted to share with you what products I took to university with me and also what I don’t recommend bringing.

I’m staying in an en-suite room, so I can have my bathroom just how I like it (with all my shower products neatly lined up!) and this did help me with deciding what to bring with me. I often find I use shower gels the most when I can see them in the shower, as I’m reminded to use them. If I’d been in shared bathroom accommodation (le horror), I’d have had to ferry my products between my room and the bathroom, so I’d probably be less likely to remember to use certain shower gels. I brought Twilight (for relaxing late night/evening showers) and Happy Hippy to help get me ready for lectures in the morning.

Another product which I thought would be essential for uni, especially during Fresher’s Week, was my Tea Tree Water toner (review coming soon). It’s helped to keep my skin clear of any junk-food induced spots and help reduce any redness. Unfortunately, in the rush of packing and moving etc. I forgot my Cupcake fresh face mask (again, I’m in the process of reviewing it!), which was quite annoying, so I’m going to collect it next weekend when I visit home. Cupcake has been helping me with my oily skin, which I’m struggling with quite a lot at the moment. Tea Tree Toner water has been helping but I feel like Cupcake just gives me skin such a boost!

A product that I knew had to come to uni with me was my Solid perfumes! I only have three so I brought all of them with me. I absolutely adore them all and I find them so much more potent than regular perfumes/sprays. They’re super easy to use, very portable for social events etc. and they smell amazing – what more do you want? I’d definitely recommend these for night outs etc. – it’s super easy to top up your scent when you’re not feeling so fresh!

And lastly, one of my favourite products from Lush – Lullaby ! (Find the full review here!) For a student living on not much money, a solid shampoo bar is the perfect product! It lasts for up to three months, so you don’t have to keep buying more shampoo. I’ve found that since being at uni I’ve taken more showers to make up for my lack of a bath, so I’m washing my hair a bit more regularly. I plan on buying a solid conditioner bar as well when I venture into my new local shop!

So, onto the final part of this post – what I don’t recommend taking to university!

1. Obviously, unless you’re incredibly lucky and have a bath, don’t bring bath bombs! Even if you go have a bath, please be very careful of staining, because you will get fined if you damage the tub in any way!
2. If you’re going to bring naked products, make sure you bring a good shower caddy or something that can suction to the wall. There’s limited space in accommodation showers (en-suite OR shared), so make sure you bring extra storage with you. You could even melt down the product into a lush pot to make it easier for you!

Please remember, these are just suggestions! Do what you want to do! This is just what I’ve brought with me and the stuff I wouldn’t bring. I hope you guys enjoyed this post (and maybe even found it useful?)! Look out for more university-themed posts in the upcoming weeks/months!

Thank you all for your support and I’ll be back with another post very soon!

THINK PINK BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hi guys, here’s a review of a bath bomb I didn’t think I’d ever be buying.

I bought Think Pink after the disappointment of not being able to get The Experimenter in store like I wanted to. I was browsing around the bath bombs, looking for something new to try instead, and it caught my eye. It was by far one of the most eye-catching bath bombs on display, as it’s covered in lustre. I picked it up and smelt it and I was almost a little shocked. I’d never tried the original bath bomb, so I didn’t know much about it’s scent. I was expecting something maybe rose-scented (based on it’s appearance), but instead I got lovely hints of vanilla & tonka, which are some of my favourite scents in lush products! I can’t believe I’d been shying away from this bath bomb because I presumed it would be rose-scented. Never presume people! (especially if Lush is involved).

Anyway, enough of the back story, let’s get on with the review. My first impression of the design of it was obviously a good one, as I was compelled it pick it up. It’s a very deep pink colour, engraved/embossed with a strange swirling pattern (this is kind of why it screamed rose to me). It’s absolutely covered in lustre, top to bottom, so I did find it a little messy to use and also to photograph (re-positioning was a nightmare!) I think it’s all down to personal preference with lustre – some people adore it and others cannot stand it. If you’re one of the people who prefers a subtle shimmer, then this is not the bath bomb for you!

Think Pink is a “fast-fizzer” and creates beautiful bath art on top of the water.

BATH ART THINK PINK.jpg

It’s definitely a “what you see is what you get” type of a product. It’s a bright pink bath bomb, so you get a bright pink bath. It’s one of the most pigmented bath bombs I’ve used. Try adding a bubble bar such as The Comforter to add some gorgeous bubbles into the mix. Think Pink also contains Lavender Oil, so it would pair nicely with any of the Twilight scented products (Serendipity soap could be a nice companion).

HOLDING BATH BOMB THINK PINK.jpg

It’s scent is meant to be uplifting and relaxing (with the Lavender Oil, Tonka and Vanilla Absolute and Neroli Oil), so definitely a good night time bath. I usually have my last bath of the week on a Sunday evening, to help me relax for the week ahead. I would recommend this product if you suffer from anxiety and need something to help you unwind.

My only criticism of this bath bomb is that it is heavily pigmented so be careful about touching towels etc. as I found that it stained. Also, I would wash out your tub straight away after use, as there is a lot of glitter that is left behind.

However, I still love this product and I would definitely purchase it again!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cornflour, Perfume, Lavender Oil, Tonka Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Cream of Tartar, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, DRF Alcohol, Limonene, Coumarin

I hope you enjoyed this review! As ever I’m so grateful for all of my followers & readers!

ROCKET SCIENCE BATH BOMB | REVIEW

This was definitely one of the new products I was excited to try the most! The promo pictures looked amazing and I was very intrigued by the beautiful rainbow stars! And it did not disappoint! I have fallen head over heels for this bath bomb and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you all!

Rocket Science has a very citrusy, fresh scent, with gorgeous Bergamot Oil and Sicilian Lemon Oil. I’d say this is the perfect scent to wake yourself up on a morning or just to make you feel fresh and energised! However, the scent does fade away quite quickly once the bath bomb has dissolved, which is really my only criticism.

This is such an adorable little bath bomb and it’s design is so intricate and well thought out. The main part of the bomb is a blue rocket, which glistens with a silver lustre. The “tail” of the rocket is a vibrant yellow, with lovely rainbow stars dotted throughout. This would be a lovely bath bomb for children, as the design is very playful and the scent isn’t too overpowering or harsh.

This bath bomb turns your bath water a deep blue colour, which is one of my favourite colours of bath. However, it doesn’t produce a great deal of bath art, despite it’s design, so if that’s something you usually look for, I wouldn’t recommend this product.

Overall, I really enjoyed this product. The scent of it is gorgeous and I just love the idea of the rainbow stars! It really adds something to your bath experience! This would also be a fab gift idea (one I’d definitely enjoy receiving!).

I really hope you enjoyed my review of Rocket Science! I recently received a very exciting Kitchen order and I can’t wait to share my opinion of those products with you!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Bergamot Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Corn Starch, Glycerine, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, Perfume, Limonene, Tin Oxide

THE BIG SLEEP JELLY BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Here is the first of my promised reviews of some of the newest editions to Lush’s extensive line of products. When the jelly bombs were released I was immediately drawn to The Big Sleep (TBS) as it was said to have a very soothing scent to it, perfect for a bath before bed. It also looked gorgeous with it’s rich blues and moon design.

The scent of TBS is exactly what I was hoping for. It’s very soothing and calming, with Lavender Oil and Chamomile Powder, but it also contains Tonka Absolute, which gives it a really nice vanilla undertone. It’s a perfect scent for those night-time baths after a long, stressful day. The scent is quite strong when you smell the bomb itself, but becomes more muted once it’s in the bath (it does stay on your skin though, which is something I always enjoy from a bath bomb!)

As I mentioned before, this bath bomb looks amazing. The main body of the bomb is a light blue colour and the embellishments (the moon design and “spots”) are a much deeper, richer blue. It produces amazing bath art in the tub, very similar to the type of bath art Frozen often produces. It’s a slow fizzer as well, so it carries on fizzing throughout your bath, which I really love. I always find it makes your bath feel a little more special.

BIG SLEEP - FINAL 1

Once it has been fizzing for a few minutes, the green jelly starts to become visible. A soft layer of foam on top of the water, which I used to moisturise my skin.

BIG SLEEP -  JELLY FINAL 3.jpg    BIG SLEEP - IN HAND FINAL 2.jpg

The jelly is meant to fully dissolve in your bath once it’s released, but I didn’t find that this happened at all. This would be my only negative point about this bath bomb. I really wish the jelly dissolved better, so you wouldn’t be left with chunks of jelly floating in your bath. It’s not a huge deal, but this stuff is extremely sticky and it’s a little difficult to remove from the sides of the bath tub.

BIG SLEEP - JELLY HAND FINAL 4.jpg

As you can see on my hand, the layer of foamy jelly is quite thin, however there is more obvious chunks of jelly in the bath as well.

I’d say this bath bomb is definitely quite a novelty product, so it’s kind of up to you whether or not you want to spend the £4.95. I did enjoy my experience overall and I definitely would purchase it again, mainly for the scent if I’m being honest! The jelly didn’t really add anything to the bath, as it was mainly the foam that was moisturising.

If you’re not sure about these jelly bombs then I’d suggest asking for a demo in store, hopefully it’ll help you decide if they are something you’d enjoy. Remember, jelly bombs are a new thing and staff aren’t going to be alarmed if you need demos of all of the new bombs!

Hope you enjoyed this review, stay tuned for more reviews of some of the other new products! ❤ Happy Lushing!
