If you’ve ever wanted to take a bath in a truly magical — and slightly unsettling — concoction, then you may very well be in luck.
Lush recently released a new set of bath products called “Jelly Bombs.” These Jelly Bombs are apparently similar to bath bombs, but instead of simply coloring and softening your bath water, they turn your bath water into jelly.
No, seriously. It’s like taking a straight-up slime bath — but, you know, slightly more glamorous than that.
Lush assures everyone that Jelly Bombs aren’t about sliminess, however, and that they’re intended to soften the skin while adding nutrients.
“Jelly Bombs are far more than a soak in slime,” the company said in a press release.”A category in their own right, as they bob and fizz Jelly Bombs release a spectacular jelly made from sodium alginate, which comes from a mineral-rich seaweed. Aside from being wonderfully entertaining, this gooey jelly is superbly softening and soothing on the skin.”
To add extra magic to this bizarre array of products, one of the Jelly Bombs is actually Harry Potter-themed. It’s called Dark Arts, and it transforms bath water into a dark, gooey and shimmery substance that looks like something straight out of a Potions textbook.
“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,” the online description for Dark Arts reads. “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.”
If you’re enchanted by the concept of Jelly Bombs, but maybe don’t want to deal with black gunk in your bath tub, then you can check out the other new Jelly Bombs, which include The Big Sleep, Green Coconut, and Marmalade.
You may end up with a mess in your tub, but hey — at least it will be a sweet-smelling, fun-filled mess!
