I work in the Pier and just recently we have expanded the range of items that we stock in-store.
We have just recently started to stock and sell various Bomb Cosmetic products. These are 100% natural ingredient bath products which are lovely.
This review is for the Strawberry Creamer. The range of creamers is lovely and there are about 10 different varieties that we currently have for sale in the Pier. They retail at £2 each which is about 1p more than if you order directly from the Bomb Cosmetic website but if you buy in store there is no delivery charge so they work out a little bit cheaper if you have a Pier near you.
I don't have a full size bath so I have just been enjoying the smell of this creamer for a few weeks. It smells almost good enough to eat and looks like a large size truffle, with lots of pink pips in it, which adds to it's appeal (think small bouncy ball for the right size). The smell of all of the creamers is quite strong and I was able to put this on my dressing table and enjoy the smell of sweet strawberries for over a week, it really made my bedroom smell lovely. When I visited my parents for a few days I thought it was time to try this in a bath I could stretch out and relax in.
Unfortunately you only get one bath per creamer so this is definitely a luxury rather than an everyday use product.
I ran the bath and put the creamer in just before I stepped in. It fizzed away in the bath and sent the little pink pips floating all over the bath. I mushed up the last bit in my hand to fully break it up. There were no bubbles and no change to the colour of the water except being a little bit cloudy. The bath did smell of strawberries for the entire time I was soaking, it was a sweet smell but not too sickly or strong.
You could tell that there were oils used in the creamer as my skin felt slightly greasy when I got out of the bath, but in a no need to moisturise way rather than a need a shower straight after way. My skin did feel nice and soft and the smell lasted on my skin for a few hours without being too over powering!
The down sides to this product were the fact that you felt you were sitting in a bath full of pips as the pink pip-like bits didn't dissolve at all. And you need to wash/wipe the bath clean immediately after use as you are warned on the product that some ingredients can stain the bath if left unwashed, normally I wouldn't care but as it was not my bath I felt I should clean up after myself.
I would use these again and would eventually like to be able to try one of each, however as I don't have my own bath to use I have to save these until I visit other people over night! I think these would make lovely gifts for people as they are a nice little treat and not too badly priced. They come in large trays to the shop and are sold individually in plastic bags with instructions of what to do with them. As previously mentioned you can also check out the website (www.bombcosmetics.co.uk) for instructions and full lists of ingredients.
Only 4 stars as I felt it would have been nicer if the pips had dissolved!
