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