I recently tried a Soap & Glory bath bomb. They fizzed their way onto the bath time pampering scene last year in 3 different scents. If you are a fan of Soap & Glory, you will totally recognise the scents:
Priced at £4.00 each (and often in the Boots 3 for 2 offer). They aren’t dissimilar in price to Lush bath bombs. I had Sugar Crush, which smells of lime and is my favourite Soap & Glory scent! In terms of size, it isn’t that big. In fact, it is pretty small compared to other bombs like those from Bomb Cosmetics or Lush. Once you have opened the outer packaging, the bomb is then tightly sealed inside a plastic wrapping. This is really hard to get off and I had to use scissors.
The Sugar Crush bath bomb is pink, yellow and sparkly!
Once dropped into the bath, it immediately sinks to the bottom of the tub and starts fizzing away. Pink and yellow bubbles start fizzing out of it immediately, but the effect is not as good when the bomb has sunk to the bottom of the bath! Other brands I have used tend to stay on the surface so you get the visual effect as well.
The bath smells amazing and turns a very pretty peach colour. The bomb fizzes away completely within a few minutes, whilst you sit back and relax.
The bomb also makes the water all shimmery and sparkly!
It didn’t leave messy residue around the bath that other brands sometimes do, so I didn’t feel like I had to spend an hour scrubbing and bleaching the bath out when I finished! The water made my skin feel soft. I smelled really nice afterwards as well! I did find it made my bath very slippery though, I’m still recovering from orthopaedic surgery so getting out was a bit precarious. I’d advise a bit of caution if you are wobbly on your pins.
The Soap & Glory bath bombs are a touch on the pricey side when you consider the size of them, but unlike Lush ones that tend to lose their fizz a bit if they have been hanging around. The Sugar Crush bomb was still very fizzy even after being sat around for 4 months! If you can get them on a 3 for 2 offer then the price isn’t too bad. If you like the scents of Soap & Glory then I think you will definitely like these bath bombs!
