Let’s face it – when people think of bath bombs, most people think of LUSH and their huge variety of quirky bath products – which is all fine and well, but there are other ranges out there, ya know!
Take for example Coal Harbour – a rather interestingly named British band specialising in bath time goodies, like bath booms, milk baths, soaps etc. I – quite frankly – rarely have time to take baths, but even I couldn’t resist their extremely cute range of Christmas Bath Bombs.
Left to right:
1. Midnight Mass
2. Ginger Bread Trees
3. Chilly Millie
What I like about these bath bombs, apart from the cute names, is that they look sweet too and come wrapped (good for gifting) whereas say, LUSH products sometimes look like balls of crumbling flour. There’s also quite a nice blend of scents in each bath bomb, rather than just one overpowering fake scent – for example, Midnight Mass has Spicy Cinnamon fragrance, but also Patchouli and Ylang Ylang essential oils (it is also an ‘arousing’ bath bomb – ooh er!).
As with all bath bombs, these are added to your bath and they fizz away to release the scent – any decorations should be rinsed away to prevent staining.
Here are the ingredients for one (Midnight Mass again) the ingredients list is pretty decent with no hidden nasties, so to speak:
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sucrose, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Aqua (Water), Parfum (Fragrance), Glucose, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Soy Lethicin, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Oil, Xanthan Gum, Astragalus Gummifer (Tragacanth) Gum, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Seed Extract, Albumen, Solanum Tuberosum (Potato) Starch, Potato Starch Modified, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Cyamposis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Polysorbate 60, Glycerin, Eugenol, CI 47005, CI 73015 (Blue 2), CI 16255.
