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.

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.

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.

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!

SEX BOMB BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hey everyone! I’m back for another review of a classic Lush product: Sex bomb bath bomb! This is a cute little bath bomb that I’ve never tried before, so I was excited to give it a go! It looks adorable and smells wonderful. I’d never really been drawn to it before, but after discovering it shares some of it’s scent with the Lust Perfume (one of my favs!) I was intrigued and decided to go for it!

The bath bomb itself is pink and purple, with some pastel pink rose “petals” nestled within it. These petals are actually made of rice paper. It turns your bath water a gorgeous pink colour. The rose petals slowly drift across the water, which is a nice touch.

This would be a perfect bath bomb if you were looking to enjoy a bath with your partner (this would be amazing for Valentine’s Day!). Sex Bomb’s main ingredient is Jasmine Absolute, which is known to be quite sensual, as well as adding a floral element to it’s overall scent.

It also contains Clary Sage oil, which is very soothing and relaxing, and Ylang-Ylang oil, which adds a sweet note to the scent. These scents all combine to create an amazing scent! I can’t believe I’ve never tried this one before! I’m definitely going to be repurchasing!

This bath bomb is only £3.75, so it’s one of the cheaper bath products. This would make a great present either for yourself or for that special person in your life! Ask for a demo in store to try before you buy!

I really hoped you enjoyed this review and liked my featured image! I thought I’d change it up a bit! Lots of new exciting posts coming soon, so follow to keep up to date!
