Sex Bomb Bath Bomb





For the last few months, I've been surviving on barely five hours of sleep a night, something which may be tolerable for people with next to nothing to do, but for someone who works twelve hours a day, is next to impossible. I just don't know how I'm managing to survive. However, those long days are ever-so-slightly redeemed when I am able to enjoy a good soak in the bath with my favourite Lush products.

Sex Bomb is a sensual bath ballistic that possesses ingredients to help improve your mood and supposedly help you to get 'in the mood'. While I certainly don't have time for that, I do try to slot in time to relax, recuperate and regenerate, and tonight I picked out Sex Bomb to help me soak off those mid-week blues. 


The ballistic features a blend of jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage, all of which help you to unwind and clear your thoughts. The jasmine is the key ingredient here as, known for being an aphrodisiac, it'll help to ease stress and anxiety. It also contains soya milk which has soothing and conditioning properties to help heal and soften weathered skin.

Unfortunately, the fragrance of the ballistic is not as strong as other ballistics I've tried, and I could barely smell anything once the ballistic has fully dissolved and was settled in my bath tub. During it's final stages of dissolving, I did lift the bath bomb to my nose and give it a good sniff. Surprisingly, there was quite a strong scent of ylang ylang  and Jasmine there, although neither scents came across much during my experience.

Sex Bomb dissolves gently into your bathwater, creating a beautiful cloudy pink-coloured brew. It also releases a rice paper flower, which sounds like a good idea in theory, but instead goes soggy and floats around on the surface like a waterlogged tissue. It would be nice if the flower was real, although this would escalate the costs somewhat.

Even though the scent was very subtle, it did help me to relax with it's sexy, sensual and gentle fragrant aroma. It also made my skin feel really revitalised and soft, calming my mood and helping me to feel more level-headed and focussed. I can see why this would work in setting the mood for a romantic evening. Unfortunately, my piles of marking are the only thing I'm going to be cuddling up to any time soon.

  1. Prettier out of the bath than in. Dissolved in the blink of an eye, leaving pink water and, er, that's it. Scent not very strong, as you say. Boring.

  2. I'm surprised you say it wasn't a strong scent! My girlfriend got me this for Christmas, and as soon as I picked up the box I could smell it through the cardboard. I used it last night (well, last-last night, since it's 3am now lol) and my entire bathroom still smells very strongly of it. And even now, if I just breathe in, I can still smell the scent lingering on my body.
