I received a Bomb Cosmetics gift set for Christmas and in it was this 'Sweet Surrender blaster'. I am new to Bomb Cosmetics and this is the first product I have used by them. I love Lush products though and Bomb Cosmetics is quite similar in the kind of products they sell, with them all being homemade and natural.
The Sweet Surrender blaster is just like a bath bomb that you place in the bath once it's ran and you get in. This blaster looked very pretty and smelt gorgeous! It was wrapped in cling film like material when I got it out of the set, none of the other products were so I'm not sure if this was to ensure it stayed in one piece or not. The main scents are raspberry and vanilla and so this reminded me of a very sweet cupcake. It's a very girly and sweet bath blaster.
Bomb cosmetics describe this as "a butterfly nestled in a Cocoa and Shea butter swirl perched on a Raspberry Ripple fragranced Bath Blaster. The butters will moisturise and nourish tired skin, and the pure Neroli oil will restore and uplift."
When I popped this into my bath it started to dissolve quite quickly whilst leaving behind lots of tiny red pieces. The butterfly came apart and took much longer to dissolve. I actually thought it looked more like a heart shape at the time, and have only just realised when writing this that it is meant to be a butterfly. Apart from the little red pieces floating around the bath I don't think this really changed the appearance of my bath. I am used to using Lush bath bombs which dramatically change the colour of the water. However, appearance isn't everything and the scent was very strong and lingered around for ages.
The oils in the blaster also made my skin feel very soft. I think I stayed in the bath for around an hour and so my skin was soft and smelt of raspberries for quite a while after too! I am not usually a fan of vanilla scented products as I do think they can be quite sickly, but I think the raspberry scent overpowered the vanilla and so it wasn't too strong for me.
As with many bath bombs and similar bath products you need to wash your bath after use as it will leave the tiny red pieces behind!
This bath blaster is available in many of the Bomb Cosmetics gift sets that can be found on Amazon and eBay, but it is also available by itself on the Bomb Cosmetics website for £2.29. After using this I definitely can't wait to use my other products in the gift set and when I have got through them and all my other Lush products that I have I will definitely order myself some more from their website!
If you love Lush, then you'll love Bomb Cosmetics. Like Lush, Bomb Cosmetics also produce handmade goodies, most famously for bath time and their products come in all shapes and sizes. I have used Bomb Cosmetics before, however I don't often see them stocked anywhere. During Amazon's recent Black Friday lightning sales I came away with not one, but two Bomb Cosmetics sets packed with lovely bath time treats, and at a cheap price. The sets were carefully wrapped and nicely presented, but these gift sets were a gift to myself, and I almost guiltily tore off the paper to get the gorgeous bath bombs inside.
This particular bath bomb is called Sweet Surrender Bath Blaster. It's very pink, smells of sweet raspberries, and even has a butterfly on the top to make it even more sickeningly girly and pretty. The strong sweet smell of raspberries hits you before you even pop this one into your bath, and I was very much looking forward to my sweet smelling bath. The butterfly is resting on a cocoa and shea butter swirl, and the main part of this bath bomb is the raspberry ripple base. The butters in this bath blaster will moisturise and nourish your skin, whilst the Neroli Oil will restore and uplift.
During the recent snow storms here in this currently freezing part of England, I decided a nice relaxing bath was needed after getting in from work and the cold deep snow. I choose this light, pink, sweet bath bomb to help me relax and warm up and after running a nice hot bath I looked forward to using this bath blaster.
The pink base of is freckled with dark pink bits, and I didn't find out until I put this in my bath just what those are. As soon as I plopped this into the water and it began fizzing away, hundreds of tiny dark red seeds began flooding my bath! The cute butterfly broke off from the main part and the orange wings floated around the bath not wanting to dissolve, and the buttery swirl formed a creamy white foam on the surface of the bath. The bath blaster realised it's comforting scent, which once dispersed in the water wasn't as sickly sweet as I first thought, and it did make for a relaxing bath, but back to those seeds. I've never come across anything like them in a bath bomb before and so I give Bomb Cosmetics a point for originality, however they seemed to disperse to the sides of my bath and stick against the side. Many of them sank and lay on the bottom, although I couldn't feel them so I wasn't sitting uncomfortably on hundreds of seeds! Towards the end of my bath a lot of the seeds seemed to just be stuck on the bath tub, and thankfully when I got out the bath I was pleased to see they weren't all stuck to my skin.
Whilst the scent of this bath blaster started out strong, it did fade rather quickly which was a disappointment. The butter swirl did it's job though and my skin was nice and soft after my bath, and I rarely find this to be the case when I use bath bombs. The raspberry scent didn't linger on my skin, but the occasional seed did and I did find a couple in my hair a few hours later. Despite this it did make for a relaxing bath and I found this bath blaster to be sweetly enjoyable.
