Thought I would do a quick review of a new brand of bath bombs I have come across, I think they could even rival Lush! (Blasphemy I'm sure!) I don't often do cosmetic/beauty stuff so I thought you might like a change.
While I was away in Tenby I purchased 2 Bomb Cosmetic Bath bombs. I have only used the one so far and it was Hearts Desire. The shop I bought it from had loads to choose from, but this one was pretty (read: romantic and I was in a mushy mood after talking wedding half the day!) and it smelt great, kinda floral but not overpowering. They were a little bit pricey at £1.99 each but I was in a 'bugger it' kinda mood.
What they say about it: Fragrance of Pomegranate, Lotus Blossom and Black Orchid. Containing Geranium and Ylang Ylang oils and sugar hearts.
Benefits: Moisturising and conditioning skin.
What I say: I decided to use the whole bomb as they are not very big, but I could probably have cut it in half if I wanted to. It fizzed about in a rather satisfying way and released a beautiful scent. I could really smell the Ylang Ylang and the Lotus Blossom, floral and fresh. What I did notice, that worried me a little, was that the bomb seemed to make the water a little oily (on the surface), I assume this was because of the essential oils in it. But when I got in the bath it actually didn't seem that oily at all.
So did it really have the benefits they said: Yes it did! The oil actually made my skin so soft and smooth, my legs were shiny and soft to the touch. I was really happy with the results and my whole body was smooth and smelt lovely afterwards. And luckily the oil didn't leave any marks on my bath, which I thought it might have!
Will I be buying more: Definitely, when I have some spare money to burn on pampering myself.
Im saving the second one, which is the Fruit Bellini Mallow till the night before my wedding so I can relax and pamper myself in a yummy bath! Ill do a nice review of that one after my wedding for you.
