Lush is best known for their wide array of bath products, specifically their beautifully crafted bath bombs that turn into aesthetically pleasing bath water. But, recently, Lush has amped up their bath bombs and changed the consistency of them. They call this new line of bath products: Jelly bombs!
Yes, now your Lush bath rituals will have a jelly-like feel to them, but they will still look gorgeous in the tub!
Lush has promoted the new products on their Instagram page with this video of how the jelly bombs work!
According to Lush, the reason for the new name is because of the release of the jelly-like texture from sodium alginate, which apparently comes from a mineral-rich seaweed.
However, the jelly bombs have only been released in the UK – Sorry USA. But fear not! We reached out to Lush and confirmed that the jelly bombs are anticipated to launch in North America in the Fall.
So for the next few months, we can just stare at photos of all four of the jelly bombs and their pretty colors.
Green and white colors embody this jelly bomb. It also has a more tropical smell to it and conditions the skin with coconut cream and cinnamon leaf oils.
Although this one is grey and black-colored, in the bath, it actually has a positive effect! Dark Arts incorporates Brazilian orange oils and cinnamon leaf oil mist, that will actually boost your mood and soften the skin!
Featuring colors of mint and turquoise blue, this one is perfect to use right before bedtime! The calming properties of chamomile and lavender will moisturize and completely relax the skin, making it easier to sleep.
Brightening colors of orange and yellow will definitely cure those Monday blues! Just like Dark Arts, Marmalade also consists of mood-boosting Brazilian orange. But it also has grapefruit oils, which will make you feel happier and refreshed!
The jelly bombs were released in the UK on July 22nd and some UK customers have already received their purchases!
One Instagram user who received the Dark Arts jelly bomb said: “I loved it! It was very slimy at first, but it does dissolve after a while!”
Another user said: “The jelly from The Big Sleep, makes the water so moisturizing.”
Then we have this girl, who received ALL FOUR!
What do you think about the jelly bombs?
I have to say, at first I thought they kind of looked a little gross and possibly problematic for children. But maybe because I know I can’t purchase them in the states, yet, I’m curious as to how the ‘jelly bomb’ bath experience is like.
For now, let’s wait for Fall, and then see what all of this hype is about!
