Sex Bomb Solid Perfume from Lush

Sex Bomb Solid PerfumeBack in May the Lush Kitchen team put a list together of Lush’s most popular scents, the Lush community then had to pick their top 5 scents from that scent list. With these results the Lush Kitchen promised that they would make several never-before-been-released products in the chosen top 5 scents. Once the results had been collected I was excited to see that the Sex Bomb scent had been chosen as one of the 5.

The Sex Bomb scent is very far away from what I normally go for when it comes down to Lush products as I always favour the fruity ones, that is until I was introduced to the Sex Bomb bath bomb. containing jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage the Sex Bomb scent is floral all the way. The Lush Kitchen worked hard and with the Sex Bomb scent they created a Sex Bomb Solid Perfume and a Sex Bomb body lotion too. When my Sex Bomb solid perfume arrived I was in love from first sniff. I regret bitterly that I never ordered the body lotion too.

Lush’s solid perfumes consistency visually resembles Vaseline, they are however not as soft and easily manipulated to the touch as Vaseline is. I’d describe them as more like a cooled, solid candle wax. The warmth of your finger heats up just enough of the product to put on your wrists and neck. I like its consistency as it stops you from using too much by accident.

Applying the Sex Bomb solid perfume is very easy, even when you’re on the go. It can slip in your pocket or purse ready for when you need it. As it’s solid it is also perfect for hand luggage when travelling. What really impressed me with the Sex Bomb solid perfume was that its scent stayed with me for a good 8 or so hours after application. This gave the Sex Bomb solid perfume a huge advantage when compared to my experience with the Brightside solid perfume. Unfortunately the Brightside perfume is barely noticeable on me after about 10 minutes, knowing this you can imagine how pleased I was with the staying power that Sex Bomb has.

I’d describe the Sex Bomb’s scent as heady, it’s what I would call a young person’s floral fragrance which is me trying to say in a very nice way that it doesn’t leave you smelling like your nan’s prized handkerchief. I find its scent calming, sensual and soothing. The main ingredient I can detect with my nose is definitely the jasmine, which is another point that impressed me as I am not a fan of the products with too much ylang ylang. Jasmine has been used for centuries as a natural aphrodisiac which I guess is how this scent got its sexy name.

All in all, I feel the Lush Kitchen have captured the Sex Bomb scent in the solid perfume format perfectly, I hope that they decide to bring more products out with its scent soon as it’s not very often that I like floral scented products.

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb

Lush’s Sex Bomb Bath Bomb is quite the eye catcher, it is mostly pink but has a purple tiedye effect on its upper half. One rice paper flower also takes pride of place on its top, making the Sex Bomb stand out from all of the rest.

I actually discovered at the Lush Showcase back in 2016 that the rice paper flower that Lush use in the Sex Bomb is in fact edible. Myself and my friend Lizzi from Lizzi Speaks both tried one, lets just say they’re better off used in the bath…

The main ingredients that stand out to me in the Sex Bomb bath bomb are jasmine and ylang ylang. Jasmine has been used for centuries as a natural aphrodisiac which I guess is why this bath bomb got its sexy name. The ylang ylang that is also used in Sex Bomb is very uplifting, it makes Sex Bomb an ideal product choice if you’re feeling stressed or down in the dumps.

I’d describe the Sex Bomb’s scent as very heady, it’s a floral fragrance with quite a musky undertone. I find its scent calming, sensual and soothing.

Much like the Blackberry and Avobath bath bomb, Sex Bomb is quite a fast fizzer. I know some people see this as a negative but for me it’s not a negative, sometimes I just want to get on with my bath, not all bath bombs have to create pretty patterns and works of art, sometimes all you need is a bath and those carefully selected essential oils.

A Sex Bomb bath is a real treat for all of your senses, it turns your water into a bright and gorgeous shade of pink, pink is my favourite colour and I always feel ridiculously happy to be bathing in pink water, especially when it smells as good as the Sex Bomb does!

What pleases me the most is that its scent (once you’re out of the bath) stays with you for the rest of the day.

The last time I used a Sex Bomb was actually last night as I wanted a fresh perspective on it before I reviewed it, at the point of writing this I can still smell it on my skin almost 24 hours later. The fragrance at this point is much more subtle and I actually prefer the scent once it has gentled down somewhat.

I very much enjoy using the Sex Bomb bath bomb, it however isn’t one of my favourites. I wouldn’t be particularly bothered if Lush ever discontinued it to make way for another product. I have of course said this about a bath bomb before and regretted it bitterly once it had been given the sack at a later date.

The only negative thing I’d say about Sex Bomb isn’t actually that much of a negative, it’s more of a funny story. It’s in regards to the rice paper flower, the very first time I ever used a Sex Bomb bath bomb I thought I was getting attacked by jellyfish that had been living in my bathrooms water pipes.

I obviously now know that it was just the rice paper flower separating itself as the bath bomb dissolved, the way it looks once it has got wet is just like a Jellyfish, my imagination has always been quite a challenge… Makes for very interesting bath times though! 😉
