The Ultimate Christmas Cracker

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis Winter my household have embraced bath bombs like never before. My son doesn’t want to get in a bath that isn’t ‘special’ anymore which is not ideal since it’s a nightly occurrence but luckily this just arrived. I’ve never tried anything from The Bomb Cosmetics before – I hear good things about their candles – so when I pulled the cracker I was excited to find 3 huge bath bombs. Technically Bath ‘Blasters’ as that’s what they call them but it’s much of a muchness, isn’t it?

Looking online the blasters range from £2.09 to £2.29 which given the size is considerably more cost effective than Lush (which is becoming an addiction of late) but I guess given that I’d have to order online (no local stockists) I wouldn’t get the same experienceor be able to pick something up on the day I wanted to use it. Swings and roundabouts but the lower cost means I will definitely be putting in an order to test out some more.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn this set I have It’s Xmas – ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With a hint of glitter and pure Neroli & Sweet Orange essential oils to fuel that festive spirit!’, Fresh Berry Blaster – A deliciously wonderful explosion with ripples of sweetness, erupting and encapsulating your every sensation leaving you feeling sweetly scented. A potent raspberry blast with a creamy, vanilla base.’ and Cherry Bathe-Well – ‘An exceedingly good bath, combining fruity summer cherry scents and a hint of cookies! Pure marjoram and chamomile essential oils will help relax and soothe you. A warm fruity accord of lush cherry combined with a rich mouthwatering milk cookie fragrance smoothed by vanilla pod and hints of creamy coconut and white chocolate.’ – The last one was damaged a little in transit but I’m very much looking forward to trying that one looking at the description.. yummy!

I can’t find stock of this particular cracker on their site but I found it for £9.99 online here which is pretty good for 3 bath bombs and what looks like a substantial gift. They do lots of other gift wrapped sets too for £12.99 – I am yet to try these out but honestly? More than a scent and an occasional oily residue I have never been blown away by LUSH bath products so if this is a cheaper alternative when you want a ‘special bath’ I’m interested! Let me know if you’d like reviews on the individual blasters!

    I really don’t want to be negative to you as I really love your blog and content and appreciate your opinions as I believe you are honest which is a rarity these days..
    But I’m really seriously being put off going on your blog or any posts due to the ads that are on any page I click on. It’s so distracting. I get you need to make money etc but it truly puts me, a long long time reader off altogether!

      I don’t control the ads unfortunately, it’s coding I implement on the site and then they’re remotely controlled elsewhere. I would imagine that they’re at fever pitch right now since it’s Christmas and advertisers are going mad lol but they will calm down again in the New Year.. sorry they’re irritating. I don’t see the pop ups etc on my computer when I go on but perhaps that’s because I visit too often 😉 x

      I’m just intruding here because I’m snooping on the comments 😛
      You should install an adblocker. I hate seeing ads all over the place, it drives me insane cuz my laptop is slow enough as it is without the extra content to load.
      I use this one but google can give you plenty of other options 🙂
      Hopefully in doesn’t interfere with anything on the site.

      I love bath bombs!! I think it’s kinda hilarious that your kids won’t have a both with out them 😛 You can get them in Penneys now too. They’re in the shape of ducks. Really cute for kids and cheap as chips 🙂 Bomb cosmetics are lovely though. They have some really nice candles too..

      no not at all.. I’m sure they can be annoying.. it’s one of those things.. come March there will be so few I’ll still be living off my Christmas ads 😉

    Always intrigued by a good alternative/dupe, as much as I love Lush, sometimes I just can’t justify the extra cost for a single bath! I do love me a Lush bath bomb, and who doesn’t want every bath to be a special one? I can’t help myself lol!
