I’m sure anyone that regularly checks my blog will know I’m a big David Bowie fan, so of course I absolutely needed a bathbomb named after him.
Miss Patisserie are a new brand that have launched at Boots, and I’ve been having a little nosey at their cute vegan, cruelty-free products and I have to say, they look great. Bath bombs, bath slabs, bath crumble – so many colours and fragrances to choose from, but obviously I went for Ziggy.
‘There’s a starman waiting in the bath… Middle eastern notes of musk and incense accompanied by exotic mandarin, this luxurious Bath Ball is dipped in golden shea butter for an out of this world experience!’ Is how the brand describe the bath bomb.
First of all I was really impressed with the presentation of the bath bomb, as a lot of bath bombs can literally look thrown together. The lines on this were really neat and the colours are gorgeous, with a star dust sprinkled gold top.
When I dropped it into the bath, I was a little bit underwhelmed. The ball fizzed, but only very gently – I’m not sure whether the water wasn’t hot enough for it, but I was kind of expecting an extravaganza of swirling colours and vigorous effervescing, but to no avail. The blue eventually melted away to reveal purples and yellows, and the gold glitter looked pretty in the bath, which became a deep sea blue shade and sparkled, so it did look nice in the end. I also found that the bath bomb struggled to fizz, as there was still some left by the time I finished my bath and so I’ve had to wrap it back up for next time.
Once out of the bath, all dried off, in my pyjamas and into bed, I’m loving the scent it’s left on my skin. It’s one of those light, earthy scents that help you drift off to sleep so it’s definitely one to use before bed. Plus, the shea butter leaves you feeling super soft, and we all love that feeling of getting into bed and everything feels like silk.
I am still going to give the brand the benefit of the doubt and try another bath bomb (possibly colourfest or rainbow river), however at the minute, Lush are still topping the bath bomb charts. It’s like, yeah, some of the dance crews that go on Britain’s Got Talent are great… but they’re not Diversity, are they? I’m gutted I’m not totally in love with the product, but I’m hoping that can be redeemed when I try out some more stuff.
