I first heard of the Jelly Bombs from Lush when my mum tagged me in a post about a Harry Potter themed bath bomb from Lush. Harry Potter + Lush = pure joy and happiness because they are my two fave things in the universe. I didn’t realise it was a Jelly Bomb until I looked into it a bit and saw it on Lush’s Instagram page. They only sell Jelly Bombs in Lush’s ma-HOOO-ssive Oxford Street store – which might I add is actually amazing. Two whole floors filled with bath bombs, bubble bars, soaps etc… and lovely staff who let you try as many bath bombs as you like in the sinks they have dotted over the store. Can you tell I really liked visiting it??
OF COURSE, like I said in my haul yesterday, I did pick one up. I picked up the Secrets Art Jelly Bomb, and they had three other ones two, and they have also announced one for Christmas and one for Halloween that will be on sale too. Whether they sell them in all stores or just in Oxford Street is a different question…
But Sunday, I ran my self a nice relaxing bath after very laborious day of binge watching 13 Reasons Why (p.s I finished it and OMG!!), and decided to test whether the Jelly Bomb’s actually turn your bath into jelly. Saying this I had big hopes that my bath water would turn into complete goo. Sounds weird but when someone says ‘jelly bath’ to you, you have to admit you would think of a bath like literal jelly. I think I grasped the wrong concept of the bath bomb and was slightly disappointed but nonetheless it was ~~ pretty cool~~.
First of all, the smell. It has a warm smell to it, a bit like spice and I really liked the smell because it reminded me of autumn which has to be my favourite season. It is a big bath bomb as well so you can see why it is slightly more expensive than other bath bombs that Lush sell. I put it in my bath when I had filled it up and it oozed out black streams into the bath – what you would expect from a black bath bomb right? Whilst I was waiting for the **magic** to happen I noticed black bits cling to the side of the bath i.e the jelly.
The jelly was quite cool I have to say, even though it wasn’t the jelly type consistency I was expecting, it stuck to your skin when you first got it, and when you wash it off it lathers nicely and leaves your skin smelling amazing. The one thing I didn’t like about the bath bomb was how slow it fizzed. I reckon mine went a bit weird because it still hadn’t fizzed down and was still large after about 40 minutes in the bath. I ended up splitting it in half to make it fizz up a bit quicker and then LOADS more jelly started forming. Not forgetting that it had a surprising pink centre too which was pretty. I have seen other reviews saying it was a slow fizzer but not as slow as mine seemed so I reckon something was up with mine… Ha ha!
However, the mess it leaves in the bath is pretty bad because it leaves black jelly stains along the outside which I did have to scrub off with a bit of trusty cif, but other than that I thought the concept of the bath bomb was really interesting. The other ones apparently fizz at different rates and of course have totally different smells so I kinda regret not buying them.
