Snow Fairy Jelly Bath Bomb

Here we go again, says the skeptic old-school Lush fan, who may have fallen in love with Snow Fairy back in the beginning, but has since moved on to bigger and better-smelling products. I'm sure there are many consumers who felt the same way as I did when this limited edition jelly bomb was first announced in the Lush Kitchen: disenchanted. 

While I have a very clouded viewpoint on the newly-designed jelly bombs at the moment, I cannot say that I was particularly enamoured with the idea of this one from the start. Neither the scent or the colour leant itself to my personal preferences, and I assumed that this would be one that I would use once and grimace.

Surprisingly, I actually found that Snow Fairy Jelly Bath Bomb was a strong specimen of a product: a ballistic that not only showcased the fragrance truthfully and wonderfully, but one that worked a lot better at impressing me than nearly all of the other variations that I had tried before it.

True to the scent family, this rumoured-to-be Christmas product has a strong, sweet and very musky aroma - one that I can only describe as being like a cloudy bubble of raspberry candy floss, with a sprinkling of musky vanilla cupcakes thrown in for good measure. It's a light, youthful, powdery smell, and resembles the likes of Fairy Dust and Snow Fairy Liquid Perfume very much so.

For those who adore this fragrance, you'll be pleased to hear that it is as robust and as long-lasting as the shower gel, and I could still smell it in my bathroom a full twenty-four hours after I had used it in my tub. Furthermore, the smell is just as strong when you're in the water; it stays with you throughout the entire experience; and it lingers on your skin for a short while after you had towelled yourself down.

As with all of Lush's jelly bombs to date, this one immediately began to fizz as it hit the surface of the water: sending out waves of pastel-pink and white colour that would go on to set the precedence for the finished look. This one takes quite a while to disperse a lot of colour as the outer white layer tends to be the predominant colour to begin with.

Another pattern I'm noticing with the jelly bombs, which this one displayed as well, is that after a good ten minutes the product is still very much active on the surface of the water. In fact, I had to break a lot of the bath bomb down with my own hands as the jelly parts tend to prevent the ballistic from being able to fully dissolve by itself. 

What I was left with was a bath bomb with quite a number of pieces of jelly floating around the tub. While it would have been nice for these to have dissolved by themselves, they didn't really affect the overall experience that much, and I just needed to remember to rinse the rub afterwards to ensure these pieces didn't attach themselves to the base of the bath.

Having said that, I did find that a small number of pieces managed to attach themselves to my legs and back, and I did have massage these from my skin before I exited the tub. Although the water is normally always fairly hot in my baths, I do get the impression that all of Lush's jelly bombs should be exposed to water of a high temperature, to ensure that they dissolve as much as possible beforehand. 

Overall, Snow Fairy Jelly Bath Bomb left my skin feeling really smooth and soft; the fragrance and colour of the water was exceptionally relaxing; and while I am not a huge fan of this smell that much, I really believe that this is a product that does the scent family well. For a bath bomb that I wasn't expecting to like, I would definitely invest in this again if it was to be released as part of the Christmas range.
