Lush had always been my go-to for anything bath related, but that might just have to change now Bliss has come along.
I became more aware of Bomb Cosmetics when my friend Alice became a brand ambassador and had one of her bath bomb designs manufactured. My local stockist, Bliss, is located in the quiet lower mall at Intu Potteries – it’s a bit of a hidden gem.
The store gifted me with a box full of goodies and I couldn’t wait to get home and try them out – my baths have been… pardon the pun… bliss!
I was gifted three bath blasters, a bath creamer, a bar of soap, and a lip balm.
Here’s my verdict
Love Bomb Bath Blaster £2.99 or 3 for £7
This one is a relatively new product so I had to try it. It’s shaped like a stick of dynamite and has a glittery wick. Livingggg for the design.
One thing I did think about with these bath bombs was that Bomb Cosmetics should consider going plastic free, as they don’t really need it and Lush do just fine without plastic wrapping. However, upon researching, there is method to the plastic wrap madness – wrapping the bath bombs means they will last longer, fizz better and smell better.
Anyway, Love Bomb bath blaster. I find that Bomb Cosmetics products work better the hotter the water, so I always run my hot water, then let the bath bomb (literally) loose, then top up with some cold water. Love Bomb fizzed a lot faster than I remember their products having done in the past, so this is a huge bonus. You can also hold the string with this one to move it around the bath to turn it this cute deep pink colour, releasing citrusy orange fragrances.
I would 100% repurchase Love Bomb, as I think it may just be my favourite out of the lot.
All That Glitters Bath Blaster £2.99 or 3 for £7
This one’s another fruity scented bath bomb, the cherry comes through first, with bergamot and sweet orange settling underneath.
I’m proud to say the glitters used in this bath bomb (and there’s a lot of it) is biodegradable, so won’t harm the environment.
This one turns the water a paler, candyfloss pink, which shimmers and sparkles and leave you covered in glitter – great for a night out if a shimmery look is one you can rock.
The creamy looking topping is packed with pure cocoa butter and shea butter which leave skin feeling silky and moisturised. I actually used a chunk of it to exfoliate and moisturise my legs – multi-purpose and all that.
Sparkle and Shine Bath Blaster £2.99 or 3 for £7
This bath bomb gave the least spectacular ‘show’, however, this blaster is a much more relaxing one, and focuses more on aroma than bath art.
The blue and pink mixes together to make a light purple tone in the water, and releases the slightly more masculine scent of sandalwood. The not so masculine part is the glitter water, but hey if that’s what you’re in to.
I feel you could really enhance this bath experience with a stick of incense to send you right off to sleep.
Summer Cherry Soap £2.99
These soaps are mild on skin and big on scent. This one pairs up beautifully with the All That Glitters Bath Blaster with its cherry fragrance and pink colour. If you hadn’t noticed, there’s a bit of a pink theme going on.
These lather up really nicely and don’t dry your skin out.
Wanna know something else fab about Bomb Cosmetics products? Vegan. Cruelty free. All natural. 100% handmade. Oh yeah.
Bubblegum Lip Balm £2.49
Is this not the cutest little pot ever? It’s giving me proper 90s/00s vibes, like when you have those fizzypop flavoured lip balms in primary school? I just think it’s mega retro and adorable. This comes in so many flavours from ‘mint to be’ to ‘one smart cookie’. Bubblegum is by far my favourite, though.
Pocket Full of Posies Creamer £2.09
I was a little bit disappointed with this one, I have to say. Where the tag had been kimbled in, it left a piece of plastic hanging out of the creamer that I couldn’t get out. I don’t think that tagging the creamers is really necessary as other companies manage without doing so. Secondly, it didn’t fizz as well as Gold-Linger, and I had to break it up with my hands. It did, however, smell lovely – with essential oils ylang ylang and sandalwood.
In all, Bomb Cosmetics are a fabulous, ethical and inexpensive company and their stockists are pretty much a one stop shop for all your skincare and bath needs. Bliss is such a fab little store with super friendly staff and I can’t wait to try more of their new releases.
