Name: Vintage Rosehip Bath Blaster
Brand: Bomb Cosmetics
From Bomb Cosmetics’ website:
A quaint, sensual and natural fragrance of yesteryear greets your nose with pure Patchouli and Geranium essential oils to softly condition your skin. Classical and pretty, this soft powdery scent captures aldehyde, jasmin, iris and spices at the opening. The rich heart mixes clove with amber, lily and peach. The complexed musk finish captures sandal, amber and vanilla.
What I liked:
– as it fizzes away, it turns the water green while petal flowers float on its surface
– sensual and romantic floral scent, lingers several hours on the skin
– it is huge, so you may get several uses out of it
What I didn’t like:
– not moisturizing
– leaves a white residue in the bathtub
Bath bombs often make promises they can’t keep. They claim to release essential oils that condition skin and leave it soft, but there’s nothing really moisturizing in them. What bath bomb do is just change the colour of the water and release energizing scents that enhance your bath and provide a relaxing and pampering experience. Vintage Rosehip Bath Blaster does this exceptionally well.
This bath bomb is simply a joy to use. Mint green in colour, it features a cute pink rose on its top. I didn’t have the heart to cut it in two, so I used it all at once, but its size is huge, which means you could potentially slice it in two or three parts to make it last longer. Then, pour it in the water and watch as it fizzes away (it’s the Sodium Bicarbonate reacting with the Citric Acid that causes the bath bomb to break apart and release its scent and oils in the water).
Because of its size, the bath bomb took quite a long time to completely fizz away, leaving only flower petals to float on the surface of the water, like little nympheas. The water had turned a beautiful and crystalline shade of green, and the air was filled with the sensual and romantic scent of flowers – jasmine, lily and iris – sprinkled with hints of clove and amber. I felt like I was bathing in a secluded lake in the middle of an enchanted forest. All that was missing was the sound of violins, and then I could have almost pretended I was a princess in a Disney movie.
But, alas, all fairy tales have a villain. This bath bomb gave me one of the most pleasant baths I have ever taken, and its scent lingered on my skin for a few hours, but sadly it also left a white residue in my bathtub. It’s wasn’t hard to clean, but not much fun either. Still, that’s a small price to pay for such an enjoyable experience.
