As you probably already know, I absolutely love it whenever Lush releases anything new. That’s why when I had heard that they had released a Turtle Jelly Bomb to raise awareness of the Pollution that’s currently effecting Marine Life, I obviously had to pop down to my local Lush store and check it out. Well after giving it a good sniff I eventually picked one up, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of it.
Here’s what Lush say about their Turtle Jelly Bomb.
It’s a sad fact that many Sea Turtles are killed each year due to Plastic debris in the Ocean. They eat floating Plastic Bags thinking that they are Jellyfish and other small pieces of Plastic that get tangled in Seagrass. If you think Plastic is turtle-y bogus, grab this naked Jelly Bomb, run a Bath to tropical temperatures and set it free, safe in the knowledge that no Marine Life will be harmed. Lower into the Water and relax under the bright Green blanket as skin-softening Jelly spreads on the surface. Cypress and Sandalwood oils keep you grounded while Pine Absolute refreshes. From the belly of the beast, Agar Agar strands emerge, floating in the Water as a reminder of the threat Sea Turtles face. Cut back on Plastic and go naked.
I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained Sea Salt, Cypress Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Pine Needle Absolute, and Seaweed Absolute, I thought that it had a gorgeous fresh and Oceanic yet ever so slightly citrusy scent to it that kind of reminded me of being at a Sea Life Centre.
What it did when I used it.
I absolutely loved what this did when I used it, as once I had lowered it into the Water, it hissed and fizzed for a couple of seconds before releasing streams of vivid Blue and Green Jelly that eventually mixed together to turn my Bath Water a beautiful shimmering Turquoise colour. I also really liked that it took quite a while to dissolve, as it released more and more thick and gloopy yet slimy Jelly the more that it hissed and fizzed, and that it left little strands of Agar Agar all over the surface of the Water once it had finally finished dissolving.
I really liked it’s results, as not only did it leave my Skin feeling incredibly soft and moisturised, but it also left it smelling of gorgeous fresh and Oceanic yet ever so slightly citrusy scent for hours after I had used it.
My overall thoughts.
Overall I would have to rate the Lush Turtle Jelly Bomb a nine out of ten. I absolutely loved it’s gorgeous fresh and Oceanic yet ever so slightly citrusy scent, what it did when I used it, and it’s results. But with it being released to raise awareness of the massive problem of Ocean Pollution, I thought that they should have donated some of the profits to a Charity that’s working to find a solution to the problem.
