LUSH Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb

This mauve and lime green Lush jelly bomb is one of their newest additions for Halloween 2017. Unlike their quintessential bath bombs that fizz, the Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb fizzes and makes slime!

So, be forewarned that this one is a little goopy. It creates a gooey layer that looks like melted eyeballs or monster snot – kind of cool for Halloween, but also a bit disgusting. However, the slime is actually useful – it’s made of seaweed extract and makes a good shaving product.

I can’t say this jelly bomb is something I’d use again, though I think it’d be a big hit with kids any time of the year. The scent is very kid-friendly as well, as it smells of fruity, fizzy candy – basically, it reminded me of the aroma of Love Hearts candy.

NEETZY’S THOUGHTS

Although the seaweed extract was useful for shaving my legs, the sludge it created wasn’t exactly aesthetically pleasing, especially when you are soaking in it. I know it’s fun to try something new and a little out there, but I really think this is more of a product for kids. It didn’t have anything else in it that could be considered useful for hydrating or moisturizing skin.

I liked that this Lush jelly bomb wasn’t as perfumy as some of their other bath products. Also, it wasn’t as highly pigmented as some of their bath bombs (though it did dye my hands and fingernails slightly). If you prefer bath products that aren’t so heavily scented and colored, this product might do the trick (or treat). Once the bomb has completely dissolved, not much of the scent lingers – the aroma is mostly a natural citrus scent. The combination of the purple and lime green makes the bath water a transparent, dusky purple. There were a few bits of purple-colored slime that didn’t dissolve and just sunk to the bottom of the bath.

Keep in mind that this Lush jelly bomb doesn’t create suds, so it’s not soapy like a Lush bubble bar. While it does create a layer of slime in your bath water, the sludge mostly dissolves.

I find that some Lush bath bombs are fizzy and potent enough for 2 baths, but this bomb is really only enough for a single bath.

Overall, this is a bit of a gimmicky product and not the prettiest after it dissolves. But, this is the type of fun, quirky product that Lush is known for – it’s a fun little product for Halloween.
