What’s a shower bomb? How do you use them? Aren’t they just really grainy????????
Shower Bombs launched just under a week ago and believe me, we’ve had every question going and I too, was a little unsure.
The first one I tried was Sleepy to get that relaxing lavender fix. It looks quite cute, like a lil cloud, and has it’s name printed on the bottom!
The first thing I noticed when using it, is as soon as the water from the shower hits it, it really expands, creating a soft foam that you then use to wash yourself.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how soft it is, due to the Potato Starch and the Sodium Alginate (Seaweed, basically). It glides smoothly over the skin leaving a trail of beautifully soft foam, which in turn makes your skin just as soft afterwards! It’s in no way like rubbing a bath bomb all over you.
Yes, there is a slight grain to it, but it’s in the form of Fine Oatmeal, which helps buff away any dead skin and dirt.
I was also surprised to see that you can actually use the Shower Bombs more than once if you chose to! According to Lush they are just the one use, and I did actually use mine in just the one shower, but it was more than enough so I could have easily popped it down and finished it the day after if I wanted to!
As being part of the Sleepy/Twilight family, there’s obviously Lavender as the main ingredient in the scent. Lavender is super relaxing, helping you chill out and unwind. It’s sweetened by the addition of Tonka, Benzoin Resinoid and Ylang Ylang which complete Sleepy’s popular smell.
Like Twilight, the scent really hits you strongly as you use the product, and I enjoyed a relaxing carefree shower with this Shower Bomb.
In conclusion, my mind was changed after using it. It is quite nice and it’s perfect for those without a bath (how do you live?) who want to treat themselves with a novelty product. Plus my skin feels super soft right now so bonus.
