BATH: The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb

Sleep is not something that comes naturally to me, I am either awake for hours or I can sleep for days, there is no happy medium for little moi which means, I'm either copping ZZZZzzzzzz or wandering around like a zombie. In an effort to wind down before bed I have taken to using absolutely anything I can to try and get a good nights sleep.  This week was the turn of The Big Sleep Jelly Bomb from Lush.

The description reads:
'Slip into something more comfortable: your bath! When you're in need of some serious relaxation, grab this snoozy lullaby of lavender and tonka. Relax in the water, pop it in and soak under the skin softening jelly blanket.'
So everything I need to fall asleep is right there in this one product. Coloured Blue and Green (I am reliably informed as I am colourblind) this Jelly Bomb looks like your average sized bath bomb sold in Lush. Decorated with a 3D Moon which stands out in the middle, the scent of Lavender is well and truly evident - wow it's really strong.

A Jelly Bomb is slightly different to your average bath bomb.  Like a bath bomb, you chuck the whole into a bath of running water (usually like a hand grenade if you're like me) and watch it bob and fizz around in the water, often creating an explosion of colour. The difference with a Jelly Bomb is that as they fizz they also release a spectacular jelly which is made from sodium alginate which comes from a mineral-rich seaweed. 

As the Jelly Bomb dissolves into nothing and leaves behind the brightest deep blue bath I think I have ever had, the scent of Lavender and Chamomile also spreads nicely throughout the house.  In the bath those essential ingredients have mixed into the steam of the hot water and within minutes.

Personally my first thoughts were that the water seemed to leave my skin a touch greasy but it was actually the oils. These seemed to be absorbed and within 15 minutes of soaking my old bones boom - my eyes started to go and once they went there was no coming back. My eyelids felt as though someone had attached lead weights to them. This sensation become stronger and stronger as I bathed. After drying my skin felt soft and smooth and still does a good twelve hours after my bath. 

Did I sleep? Like a baby, and for that I'm truly grateful. Even better, it cost just £4.95!
