From my previous Lush haul, I was so excited to give this one a try considering it’s a new formula to the standard range as this is a ‘Jelly Bomb’. I have heard a lot of mixed opinions on these, so of course I had to try it out for myself.
The jelly bombs cost £4.95, which is on the expensive side, but it is a bigger product and you’re getting jelly as well as pretty bath water.
A big question that I’ve still not answered is: ‘What is a jelly bomb’? They do exactly as a normal bath bomb would do, but they release jelly which is actually sodium alginate which comes from mineral rich seaweed (fancy) In the bath you get a layer of ‘jelly’ that you can’t really feel in the bath, as it dissolves once you’re in. I was left with a few of what looked like jelly cubes floating around, that didn’t seem to dissolve, so I had to wipe them away once finished.
These jelly bombs take ages to fully dissolve, as it had been over ten minutes and it still hadn’t full dissolved. No I don’t time my bath bombs it’s the time difference from my Instagram stories, as like I said in my haul I always record them dissolving on there.
The Big Sleep is in the same scent family as Twilight, which I wasn’t sure about at first, but they do smell really similar once this one has dissolved. This jelly bomb contains: ‘Lavender Oil, Neroli Oil and Chamomile Powder, so it is a really calming and relaxing scent, so this is a great one to use before bed.
The bath art on this thing is insane, as it’s instantly shooting out colours of blue and green which leave the water a beautiful turquoise colour. As it dissolved for so long, you get some really great colours and you can start to see the layer of jelly forming on the top.
Overall I really like this jelly bomb, but I don’t think it’s one I will be repurchasing in a hurry, as it seems like something that will be nice for a treat. If they bring out new colours and scents then I’d definitely give them a try.
Have you tried a Jelly Bomb?
