I've never really been a bath girl. I just never, ever liked having baths. Showers all the way for me! However, I have a lot of trouble getting to sleep/staying asleep/sleeping at appropriate times and time and time again, I'd had having a bedtime bath recommended to me. So, when I bought my sister a present from Bomb Cosmetics for her birthday, I decided to pick up a few things for myself as well. I went with a lavender theme as lavender is supposed to relax you and aid sleep plus it's a gorgeous scent. I picked up the Lavender Bath Creamer, the Flying Saucers Blaster, Lavender Musk Blaster, Sky Flower Blaster and the Lazy Lavender Brulee. It's safe to say that since I indulged these products, my Sunday Night Bath Time is one of my favourite parts of the week!
First of all, the service. I ordered online from the Bomb Cosmetics website. Delivery took a little longer than I'd've liked and it didn't actually arrive in time for my sister's birthday but it took a week I believe so it wasn't you know, awful. Upon receiving my package, I was very surprised. It was huge. I couldn't understand how such small products, and even my sister's gift set, needed such a large box. The box was fantastic though, a lovely pink colour and it was obvious where it came from. Inside, my questions were answered. As you can see from the pictures above, my bath bombs arrived packaged with lots of protective...things...inside. Although a little excessive, I'm glad to say that I'm definitely confident ordering from Bomb Cosmetics again as I know my products will be totally safe. Not to mention, the prices are seriously reasonable!
Now, onto the products themselves. I used the Lavender Bath Creamer first. I was shocked by how small this was but to be honest, if I'd read the product descriptions properly, I don't think I would have been. Despite it's tiny size though, it really was a mighty little thing. As soon as I dropped it into the bath my bathroom was filled with the lovely scent of lavender. Next bath time, I went for the Flying Saucers Blaster. This was probably my favourite of the bunch just because it looked so cool. Again, it was beautifully scented and this one left my bath a lovely purple colour which made it look wonderful and appealing. Bubbles annoy me slightly but then a bath without bubbles looks so...boring and empty so a purple bath was a great compromise! I expected all my blasters to leave my water an attractive purple colour but I was surprised by the lovely pink colour that the Lavender Musk Blaster resulted in. The Sky Flower Blaster was just so pretty to look like I didn't really want to use it but of course I did. Again, no disappointments!
I had a bit of an "oops" moment with my Lazy Lavender Brulee. You're meant to be able to use it up to six times but me being me, I completely forgot to remove it from my bath and it all melted, oops! So, the lavender smell with this one was just too overpowering for me and it also left my skin feeling quite oily and greasy afterwards. However I have a sneaking suspicion that had I used it correctly, this wouldn't have been an issue...that being said, the lavender scent lasted on my skin well into the next day which was lovely.
Overall, the products made bath time into a lovely and looked forward to part of my week. While nothing helped me sleep, I always felt really, really relaxed after my bath with Bomb Cosmetics. I was also amazed by how soft each product left my skin. It was always so touchable afterwards. I'd definitely recommend this store as a Lush alternative and I will certainly be shopping there again!
