Lush The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb Review!

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?

Thank you for reading!

    It’s been so long since I went into lush, I miss it!! Never heard of a jelly bomb but I’d think they were quite slimy which I hate in a bath bomb/bath product. The colour is so pretty though xx

      I hope you go back soon! They’re quite new, they don’t have many out right now. They have little bits of what feels slimy, but it’s nothing major and you can’t really feel it at all unless you mean to; if that makes sense. It really is xx

    It’s pretty but I hate having to clean up after and it’s really slow dissolving!

    Jelly sounds interesting! The colour is really pretty xx

    • 27th August 2017 / 11:13 pm

      It’s definitely different! It really is xx

    • 27th August 2017 / 11:14 pm

      I think they are just online, as I couldn’t find them in stores either, which is strange!xx

    I picked this up for my friends birthday and I was so intrigued with it – I’m not sure how I feel about the floating jelly bits but if they make your skin feel softer maybe thats a bonus? Although not sure I could wait that long for it to dissolve, seems a bit excessive! xx

      Aw, it’s a good present idea especially since they create so much in the water! It’s definitely something that seems to have a lot of hits and misses, but it does take a very long time to fully dissolve xx

    Ooh I’ve not seen this one before, it looks exciting but definitely on the more expensive side! Might give it a go at some point but love their normal bath bombs so much still and still have so many to get through!

      They’re still quite new, as I think they’re only available online for now, as I looked in store and couldn’t find any! They have so many gorgeous bath bombs!xx

    This bath bomb is so pretty! I must look out for it when i’m next in lush, its been ages since i’ve tried a bath bomb, but you’re right its a little on the expensive side!

    • 27th August 2017 / 11:18 pm

      It’s definitely one that creates lots of pretty bath art! I am pretty sure they’re only online for the time being, as I couldn’t find them in store, but that may be because my local Lush is tiny haha! It’s definitely a little pricey!xx

    I’ve never tried the jelly bombs! But this one literally looks like the ocean in a bath tub, it’s beautiful! I haven’t used a lush bath bomb based product in what feels like ages. But then again, Christmas is just round the corner! Haha xxx

      I think they’re still quite new, as they don’t have many out! It really does look like the ocean; it’s really pretty! Lush have the best Christmas stuff too!xx

    These seem very interesting, but I’m not sure if I’m willing to try one after seeing your Insta story. However, the water looks very pretty <3

    Lots of love,

      It’s definitely an interesting idea and concept! It was an experience for sure haha! Can’t fault the colour of the water at all xx

    • 28th August 2017 / 8:18 pm

      It’s definitely different! It really does, the colours are stunning!xx

  11. 28th August 2017 / 3:18 pm

    these are so intriguing, can’t believe they’re actually like jelly. love that it’s lavender though, i love anything lavender scented!

      It’s such an interesting concept and it’s so good that it does what it says! It is such a nice scent, to me it smelt a lot different when it had dissolved, but it was a good thing!xx

    I actually haven’t heard of the jelly bomb before, but then, I don’t often go to Lush anyway 😀 I really like the color but you said it takes time to dissolve, so I may not purchase this since I really have a short attention span.

      They’re still quite new to be fair! It is a really pretty colour, but it takes a loooong time to fully dissolve xx

    I have not tried this particular lush bomb but I do love using the lush bombs. I agree, they are nice to have as a treat because they are expensive and so I like to buy them once in a while. This one sounds like it smells amazing =o)

      They’re still quite new in all fairness! This one would be such a nice one to get if you wanted to treat yourself or someone else xx

      They have some really great products and their bath bombs are great! I hope you love them xx

    I haven’t had a bath bomb for almost a year! I do love lush though, the colours on this one are beautiful and the twilight-esque scent sounds perfect to me because that is my favourite bath bomb from lush.
