Bath Bombs Galore #2

I did a post on this back in November, but since then I’ve tried more bath bombs, so I thought it was time for a part 2!

Avobath

This has still been one of my most favourite bath bombs. Ingredients include lemongrass, bergamot oils, avocado and olive oil. All of this left my skin feeling so nice and soft. The water turned into this really pretty, shimmery blue-green kind of colour too, and it smelt so nice! All in all, while it wasn’t flashy, it definitely left my skin feeling hydrated and nourished, and that’s all I need.

Sunnyside

This one is very golden and shimmery, and also kind of a pain to clean up afterwards. Sunnyside is a bubble bath bomb, so along with making the water golden and sparkly, it also filled up with lots of bubbles! The scent was very citrus-y, which is no surprise as the ingredients are a blend of orange, lemon and tangerine oils. All in all, it was quite refreshing, but I don’t think I’d try it again.

Sex Bomb

This was highly recommended to me in the store, and I was keen to try it out. It smelt floral, but not overpowering. When I hopped in, I immediately felt more relaxed. The ingredients include jasmine (helps with stress and anxiety) ylang ylang (helps sooth worries) and clary sage (helps to clear the mind). The water was a pretty pink/purple colour, and made my skin nice and soft. Also, as a little surprise, that mini rose at the top of the bomb stays for a while. It was just floating around like a little boat, before finally dissolving around 15 minutes later. It’s definitely one to try for yourself!

Experimenter

This is one of the more pricier ones. Like Intergalactic, it’s cause you’re going to get a show as you drop the bomb in. There was lots of colours swirling, as well as different scents. I got a bit of vanilla, and something else I couldn’t quite place. As the water settled, the colours all mixed, so the water was a bit murky. The appeal is definitely in the beginning stages of this bath bomb, but I still enjoyed it.

Creamy Candy

This was the first bubble bar I’ve tried, and I really liked it! The water turned into a nice light pink, and it felt so moisturizing on my skin. I came out with very smooth and velvety skin which I really enjoyed. The scent was also sweet, kind of like candy which is never a bad thing. The ingredients include almond oil and cocoa butter while helped with the overall hydration and softening experience! Definitely give it a go some time.

Marmalade

This is the first jelly bomb I’ve tried, and I didn’t really understand what made it different from a bath bomb at first. From what I can tell, rather than fully dissolving, there are little bits of jelly covering the water which you can squish in your hands during the bath. It was very satisfying feeling it dissolve in my hands. The ingredients include orange and grapefruit oils, so it had a nice citrus scent and colour. All in all, it was very refreshing and a lot of fun!

Over and Over

This is another bath bomb that is fun to watch as you throw it in. It rolls over and over, releasing lots of pinks, oranges and golds everywhere! It was definitely refreshing, and the cocoa butter left my skin feeling nice and soft. My one issue with it though, is that it did stain my tub more than other bombs. I had to spend some time getting the colours off the side.

The Big Sleep

This was one that Rory got me as a treat, after I’d had a bad day at work. I was drained and grumpy, so this was a really nice surprise! I immediately got scents of lavender and chamomile, which definitely helped me relax. When I popped it in, it turned the water into a nice light blue colour. While in the tub, the mix of lavender and neroli oil helped me feel so relaxed. Which was a good bonus, as I was in a crabby mood right before the bath. I was so relaxed in the bath that I caught myself almost falling asleep way too many times to count. After getting out, I headed straight to bed and had such a good sleep! I really recommend trying this if you’re in need of a relaxing night in!!

So I’ve tried a lot of bath bombs in the past 6-8 months, and I definitely plan on getting more! Which bath bombs have you tried recently?

  1. What a fun way to introduce bath bombs, Angela. πŸ™‚ I am not sure if I have ever used a bath bomb. Weird, right?! The ones with calming oils sound the nicest to me.

    1. Haha, thanks! I hadn’t used any until the end of last year, and now I’m addicted! There’s so many to try!! The calming ones are definitely amazing. I loved The Big Sleep, as it helped turn a bad day into a great relaxing night πŸ™‚

  2. I’m literally just about to get into a bath using the submarine bath bomb from lush! I am obsessed with bath bombs, loved this post! Avobath is my best friends favourite and I get why, its sooo nice <3

    1. Haha, that’s awesome! I haven’t tried the submarine one, but it sounds cool! I love how they’re always coming out with new ones to try! Avobath is definitely still one of my favourites πŸ™‚

  3. I didn’t have bath in ages actually, especially Lush one. I love Lush but I hathe their prices here, they are so high. Love the look and description of “mermalade” bath bomb, it sounds incredible. xx

    1. They are such a nice addition to a bath! That sucks that the prices are pretty high, they’re around $6- $10 per bomb here, which isn’t that cheap either, but I like splurging when I can πŸ™‚

  4. Think, I have had sunnyside and yes not easy to clean. I had hoped glitter would stick to body but did not. I like glitter bug massage bars for making body sparkle πŸ™‚

    Think I should have used one at weekend as Mon like you I did a boudoir shoot. It is exciting! Not seen pics but you do realise how fake pics in magazines are. I did one where at end meant to look, like naked in white sheet but had bra on and sheet tucked into it. On others had two bras done really tight for maximum uplift!

    1. Haha, the glitter bombs tend to leave a mess in the tub. They don’t really stick to the body though, you’d have to buy body glitter for that!
      That’s exciting that you did a boudoir shoot! It’s such an empowering experience πŸ˜€
      The pictures in the magazine are a bit more extreme, they take forever to do the photos, and they have lots of people helping with hair, makeup, lighting and what have you.

      1. Ha yep. The glitter bug does stick and is in your clothes for months! I’m trying glue and glitter for face at weekend fest that best stick!

  5. Love it! I tried the Experimenter before, but after touching it my fingers turned purple lol.

    1. Haha, yes! It was an extreme colour fest at first. I touched it a little at the beginning, then decided to just let it fully set into the water before getting in lol

  6. I love bath bombs, but I haven’t taken a bath in a while, so I haven’t tried new ones. These all sound super good though! Over and Over and Avobath sound like my favourite. I like the idea of all those ingredients like olive oil, feeling good on my skin.

    1. They’re so much fun to play with! Avobath was really amazing! It really did make my skin feel wonderful afterwards

  7. There is even a sex bomb. Lovely. Thank you Angela

    1. Haha, there’s so many different bombs, all with different names πŸ™‚

      1. There’s always one to pick πŸ˜‰

      2. I know, but the cutest name caught attention first

  8. Anything with lavender and chamomile is a big YES from me! Haha the avocado one sounds cool too (: sweet post

    1. Lavender and chamomile were such a nice mix, definitely made the bath so much more relaxing haha! Thanks Shannon!

  9. Now I want to go soak in bath! I LOVE the avobath it smells SO yummy! <3

    1. Writing the post definitely put me in the mood for a bath as well haha! The avobath is so good!

  10. These all look lovely! I’ve never used bath bombs! Every time I go in to Body Shop I keep an eye for their ones which I think you tried before πŸ™‚

    1. Bath bombs are so much fun! I’ve tried a few of the body shop ones, but I mostly go for Lush πŸ€—

      1. The lush ones look amazing, but they just sound really expensive πŸ™ cause I assume you just get one bath out of one bath bomb?

        1. Yeah, they’re a one-time use thing. It definitely is a splurge each time

  11. These all sound really good 😊 I love bath bombs so much xx

    1. They’re a great addition to any bath! πŸ™‚

      1. Definitely xx

  12. I wish there was a Lush near me so I could pick some out! I worry if I order online I’ll hate it when it comes in. There’s a Lush by my school but usually traffic is so bad I’m rushing before or after class and have to skip going. But all of these look cool and I love that Rory got you a surprise one!

    1. I’ve never had a really bad experience with any bath bombs, so I feel like any one you get will be nice! There are definitely ones I prefer though. If you figure out which ingredients/scents you like, it’ll help narrow down options with online shopping πŸ˜€

  13. Lush bath bombs are so fun! I need to try the avocado and the sex bomb, they both sound very relaxing.
    I love the ones that dissolve into lots of different fancy colours, it’s an experience everytime I use one lol
    I’ve been really curious about the bubble bars for a while now, I’ll have to pick one up!

    1. Haha, it’s definitely so much fun watching the bath bombs dissolve! The avobath one is still one of my favourites, my skin felt so nice afterwards πŸ˜€

  14. The Experimenter is my all-time favorite bath bomb. It is so spectacular!

    1. Definitely! It was very impressive πŸ€—
