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!

Before I start the review, I’d like to express my deepest condolences to those affected by the events that took place in London last night. People can be so selfish and evil. Remember that the world is not all bad and these horrific events should not stop anyone enjoying life to the fullest. London, you are in everyone’s hearts. ❤


It’s important to carry on doing what you love after such events, so here’s my review of one of my most recent Lush purchases – The Rough With The Smooth body scrub (TRWTS). I’ve recently thrown all my energy into revitalising my skin routine, to help my skin stay moisturised and fresh throughout the summer months. I went to Lush with the intention of buying a scrub to use in the shower/bath, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. Lush have so many amazing scrubs, but TRWTS stood out for me. The smell was very familiar to me, and I was informed that it shared it’s scent with the Lord of Misrule shower cream, one of my all time favourite products! I was instantly sold. I tested it out on my skin and it was amazing! The scent lingered for the rest of the day and it made my skin feel so smooth and exfoliated.

It’s amazing scent is down to Patchouli oil, Black Pepper oil and Vanilla Absolute, which combine to create that iconic scent. I really miss Lord of Misrule when it’s not Halloween time, so discovering a permanent product which shares it’s scent has changed my life! I look forward to using it in my morning showers as it just gives my skin such an amazing feeling and it’s perfect for exfoliating my legs for wearing shorts! The soft Murumuru butter helps to moisturise your skin as the sugar removes any dead skin cells.

Top tips:

-Leave to fully dry (if using wet) before storing it, as it can stick  (especially if you’re using the square Lush tins)

-Remove from the shower once you are finished, as prolonged water exposure will cause it to disintegrate

-Chop it up into smaller pieces, large enough for a single use – this can help with disintegration!

The Rough With The Smooth body scrub retails for a very respectable £5.95, and you get multiple uses out of it, so I’d definitely say it’s worth buying. If you want the square storage tin, that’ll cost an additional £2.95 (personally, I keep mine in a small Tupperware tub, which works just as well!)

Ask for a demo in store to see if this is the body scrub for you!

Intergalactic bath bomb | Review

Hey guys, back with another bath bomb review and it’s another classic – Intergalactic! This truly is one of Lush’s most iconic bath bombs and it was one my own first. If you’re looking for that bright blue, glittery Lush bath, then this is the one for you!

Intergalactic has always been a firm favourite and I’ve been repurchasing it for years. There was a period of time when it was banned in my house, because I forgot to wash the bath out and the glitter stained the tub, but those dark days are behind me now.

It’s a very refreshing bath bomb, with Peppermint Oil taking centre stage. This, mixed with Grapefruit oil, gives your bath a gorgeous minty yet citrus scent. I’ve found it to be a good mood-booster for when you’re having a meh type of day. It’s certainly my go-to for when my depression is just too much to handle!

This is a very colourful bath bomb, featuring neon blue, yellow and pink. These colours combined great a deep blue galaxy in your bath. Popping candy adds an element of surprise and really makes the whole experience more enjoyable.


Intergalactic is absolutely packed with lustre (three types to be exact), which isn’t for everyone. If you decide to give this one a go, please rinse your bath straight after it drains! It will stain your bath tub!

It retails for £4.25 (a little heartbroken, swear it used to be below £4), but it’s well worth it. Personally, I’d stockpile them so you’ll have one ready for when you have one of those days.

If you’re still unsure, pop into your local Lush store and ask for a demo! You won’t be disappointed!

Hope you enjoyed the review, more coming soon!

Creamy Candy bubble bar

One of my holy grail Lush products! Repurchase it whenever I’m in Lush! This smells exactly like the Rockstar soap. It has a very strong, sweet smell, so if you’re not into that, maybe not for you! Otherwise, give it a go!

This product is cheaper than a lot of other bubble bars and is slightly smaller, but makes just as many bubbles. It turns your bath water a pastel pink colour (with no staining). The smell really lingers on your skin for hours after your bath. Lush need to make a perfume with this scent. Absolutely gorgeous.

Although this is a small bubble bar, you can still reuse it just like the other bubble bars available at Lush. I usually break this in half or use it whole. Your bath water will still look and smell amazing if you only use half!

RRP: £2.95

Don’t think they offer samples of these, but why not ask and see? If not, ask for a demo in store!
