A Midsummer Night’s Soak | Lush Summer 2017 Releases

As you probably already know, I absolutely love it when Lush releases anything new. That’s why when I had heard that they had released a whole bunch of new and interesting Bath Bombs, I of course had to pop down to my local Lush store and check everything out. Well after giving everything a good sniff, I eventually picked up theΒ Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb, The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb, the Green Coconut Jelly Bomb, the Rocket Science Bath Bomb, the Marmalade Jelly Bomb, and the Secret Arts Jelly Bomb, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Lush say about all six interesting Bath Bombs.

The Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb.

An old, and slightly odd British childhood game states that if you hold a Buttercup under your Chin and it glows Yellow, it means you love Butter, but you don’t need to hold this cheerful bomb to your skin to know you love bathing! Bring the sunrise into your bathroom by dropping this fizzing treat into a bath full of warm water. Bright Lemon Myrtle, zesty Lime and uplifting Neroli will have you skipping down the street with a big smile on your face.

The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb.

Slip into something more comfortable, your bath! When you’re in need of some serious relaxation, grab this snoozy lullaby of Lavender and Tonka. Relax in the water, pop it in and soak under the skin softening jelly blanket. Chamomile calms the skin and your mood, while Neroli helps you feel uplifted. Sleep tight!

The Green Coconut Jelly Bomb.

Set sail to the tropical island of your dreams. Lie back on the soft Sand, the warm waters lapping at your feet, the breeze scented like tropical fruits. Climb in to your bath and pop in this king of Coconuts. Jelly leisurely spreads across the water, softening as it goes. Condition your skin with Coconut Cream and bask in the warmth that a Cinnamon Leaf undercurrent brings. Relax and refresh yourself in your own little piece of Paradise.

The Rocket Science Bath Bomb.

Blast off to another world with this mix of uplifting Bergamot and Lemon. It’s smooth soaring to beautiful bath waters as mellow Yellow fizzes with deep Blue and Pink. Lower onto the surface of the water, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as it leisurely glides around the bath. You’ll love this to the Moon and back!

The Marmalade Jelly Bomb.

Please look after this jelly bomb and uplifting Orange Flower Absolute will look after your mood. Get in a warm bath, toss in this brightening brunch of Brazilian Orange and Grapefruit Oils, and relax as jelly covers Β the water, softening skin and spreading joy as it goes.

Travelling all the way from deepest darkest Poole vibrant Oranges and Yellows will chase away the blues. Without a shred of doubt, bad moods will be Toast!

The Secret Arts Jelly Bomb.

When you’re feeling like going to the dark side, dabble in the dark arts, slither into a hot bath and cast this Jelly Bomb into the water! As tendrils of Black give way to love potion Pink, Cinnamon Leaf Oil warms and stimulates. Jelly spreads on the surface of the water, softening skin as it goes. Uplifting and brightening Brazilian Orange Oil gives moods a boost, and Sweet Almond Essential Oil helps to keep skin conditioned. Relax and restore yourself, and rise anew from the cinders.

The Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as I thought that it reminded me of freshly cut and squeezed Lemons. I also really liked that it kind of reminded me of if they had mixed their Avobath Bath Bomb with their Refresher Shower Jelly.

What it did in my bath.

I was really impressed with what this did in my bath, as once it hit the water, beautiful streams of bright golden Yellow exploded everywhere, and then after a minute or so beautiful streams of pale Pink also exploded everywhere, that Β eventually turned the water a beautiful golden Yellow colour. I also really liked that because this also contained Cocoa Butter, that it left an extremely thin layer of oil on the surface of the water.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my skin feeling incredibly moisturised without feeling greasy, but it’s gorgeous strong Lemon scent lasted on my skin for hours after I had gotten out of the bath.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent when I first smelt it, as i’m not really a fan of Lavender. But once it hit the water it actually grew on me, as I found that the Lavender, Neroli, and Chamomile all blended together to create a very subtile grassy Lavender scent, that kind of reminded me of an Aromatherapy Room at a luxury Spa.

What it did in my bath.

I was really impressed with what this did in my bath, as once it hit the water, gorgeous streams of Turquoise exploded everywhere, that eventually turned the water a beautiful sparkling Turquoise colour. I did find that it didn’t entirely dissolve though, which was a little disappointing, as I found little shards of it floating around the bath once I had gotten in. I wasn’t really a massive fan of the jelly that this released at first though, as I thought that it made the water feel incredibly slimy and my bath hard to get into, but it actually grew on me after a while, as I found that it eventually disappeared to leave the water feeling gorgeously silky.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my skin feeling incredibly moisturised, which i’m guessing was because of all the jelly, but it also left my skin smelling of gorgeous grassy Lavender for hours after I had gotten out of the bath.

The Green Coconut Jelly Bath Bomb.

It’s scent.

I again wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent when I first smelt it, as i’m not a lover of Coconut. But once it hit the water it actually started to grow on me, as both the Coconut Cream and Cinnamon Leaf Oil blended together to create a really nice musky yet fruity Coconut scent, that kind of reminded me of that scent you smell when you walk into a Oriental Spices store.

What it did in my bath.

I really liked what this did in my bath, as once it hit the water, beautiful streams of Green exploded everywhere, that eventually turned the water a beautiful pale spring Green colour. I also found that because this was a tiny bit smaller than The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb, that it actually dissolved a lot quicker, and didn’t leave any shards floating around the bath. I again wasn’t really a fan of the jelly that this released at first though, as I thought that it made the water feel incredibly slimy and my bath hard to get into, but it actually grew on me after a while, as this also contained Coconut Cream which meant that the jelly was a little thinner and dissolved much quicker.

It’s results.

I was a little disappointed with it’s results, as even though it left my skin feeling incredibly moisturised, it’s scent didn’t last very long on my skin.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained both Sicilian Lemon Oil and Bergamot Oil, it had a very deep musky scent to it that kind of reminded me of Lemon flavoured Coffee.

What it did in my bath.

I was extremely impressed with what this did in my bath, as once I had lowered it on to the surface of the water, it fizzed for a second or so and released thick streams of beautiful Blue smoke, before becoming still for a second or so and then loudly fizzing, moving around the bath, and releasing vibrant streams of both Yellow and Pink, that eventually made the water look like the Milky Way.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as I loved that it’s deliciously deep Lemon flavoured Coffee scent stayed on my skin for a good couple of hours after I had gotten out of the bath. But I did think that it left my skin feeling a little bit on the dry side, as I had to use a body moisturiser afterwards.

The Marmalade Jelly Bath Bomb.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent, as even though it contained Orange Flower Absolute, Brazilian Orange Oil, and Grapefruit Oil, it didn’t really smell that citrusy, and kind of reminded me of a very masculine yet citrus smelling men’s deodorant.

What it did in my bath.

I was actually really impressed with what this did in my bath, as once it hit the water, it released gorgeous streams of both Yellow and Orange, that eventually turned the water a very nice muted Orange colour. I again wasn’t really a massive fan of the jelly that this released at first though, as I thought that it made the water feel incredibly slimy and my bath hard to get into, but it actually grew on me after a while, as it made me feel like I was bathing in a massive pot of Marmalade.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as not only did this leave my skin feeling incredibly moisturised without feeling greasy, but it’s strange citrus masculine scent stayed on my skin for a good couple of hours after I had gotten out of the bath.

The Secret Arts Jelly Bath Bomb.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved it’s scent, as when I first smelt it, it’s scent reminded me of the Cinders Bath Bomb from the Christmas 2015 range. But once it hit the water, it’s scent turned into a subtile yet fruity Cinnamon scent, that kind of reminded me of a very muted Orange and Cinnamon Candle.

What it did in my bath.

I was really impressed with what this did in my bath, as once it hit the water, it released streams of beautiful Black, that eventually made the water look like a huge puddle of Oil. I again wasn’t a massive fan of the jelly that this released at first though, as I thought that it stuck to my skin quite a lot and made the bath hard to get into, but it actualy grew on me after a while, as it eventually dissolved into a thin jelly that reminded me of bathing with one of their Bath Oils.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as not only did this leave my skin feeling incredibly moisturised without feeling greasy, but it’s gorgeous fruity Cinnamon scent also stayed on my skin for a good couple of hours after I had gotten out of the bath.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb a nine out of ten, The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb an eight point five out of ten, the Green Coconut Jelly Bomb an eight out of ten, the Rocket Science Bath Bomb an eight out of ten, the Marmalade Jelly Bomb a seven point five out of ten, and the Secret Arts Jelly Bomb a nine point five out of ten. I really liked all six Bath Bombs, and i’ll definitely be picking up quite a few more of each, especially the Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb and the Secret Arts Jelly Bomb. But I was a little disappointed with the scent of the Marmalade Jelly Bomb, and couldn’t quite comprehend the fact that four of these contained Jelly.

If you would like to check out any of these six gorgeous bath bombs for yourselves, then you can either pop into your local Lush store, or you can find them online here.
