Still working my way through my Bomb Cosmetics gift set, I come to the Rosebud buttercup. Until recently, I probably wouldn't have said that I was hugely keen on Rose scented products, but then I used the Bomb Cosmetics Rose Creamer, which smelled absolutely delicious, and changed my opinion on Rose for the better.
A buttercup is a handmade bath product, which is made with cocoa butter and essential oils, for a soothing and relaxing bath.
The Rosebud Buttercup comes in a mini cake case, and is completely white in colour with a little rosebud on the top - very sweet and pretty to look at.
Before putting this into the water, I peeled off the cake case. I had thought this might be difficult as it looked really stuck on there, but luckily it came away in one piece.
When I dropped this into the water it fizzed slowly on the surface, leaving the water cloudy as it went. The rosebud became detached and I took it out of the water, as I don't think it serves any purpose other than decoration.
I could feel the butters and oils in the water, but they just made the water feel silky, unlike the Bomb Cosmetics bath gem I recently used, which had made it feel quite greasy.
One thing missing, I felt was the smell. Before putting this in the water, it had a very soft, floral rose smell. Once in the water, I could barely smell it at all. After getting out of the bath there was a slight trace of the scent on my skin, but I found it disappointing that it was not more prominent whilst in the water.
Despite being able to feel the difference to the water whilst in the bath, I was disappointed that my skin didn't really feel any different once it was dry.
The rosebud buttercup weighs 30g and costs £1.99 from www.bombcosmetics.co.uk
Overall, I was very disappointed in this product. It had very little scent and did nothing for my skin. For a product costing £1.99 that will only last one bath, just to find it would have made no difference if I had not used it is pretty annoying! So, my advice would be not to fall for its pretty appearance - you would be better off buying a cheap bottle of bubble bath!
