Druid and the Witch Rainbow Cloud

I’ve noticed recently within the bath bomb world there has been a very affordable bath bomb from a discount store which is in the shape of a cloud and gives off streams of colours while in the bath. Is this a totally new product? No. I’ve seen many online bath and body product vendors make these type of bath bombs for awhile now but it does seem to have filtered through onto the high street. So this got me thinking…..have a actually got one of these bath bombs in my stash and if so what is it like? And guess what yes I do, or should I say I did. Not from the high street but from an Etsy seller called Druid and the Witch. Their Rainbow Cloud bath bomb costs £2.20 and I bought mine within a set sometime last year.

Rainbow Cloud by Druid and the Witch

Appearance. From the name of this its not hard to guess this is the shape of a cloud, and a flat one. Takes up the palm of my hand in regards to length and is roughly an inch in depth. On the front you can see a delicate and pretty mix of white and shades of purple highlighting the shape of it. And for added detail there is a slight shimmer to this bath bomb and a hand painted silver lightening bolt on the left hand side. On the back is the relevant labeling in regards to fragrance and ingredients. If you look on the bottom edge of Rainbow Cloud you can see different colours popping through ( purple, blue, yellow ) giving you a hint of whats to come during bath time.

Scent. Mine was scented Blueberry Lemon whereas currently its the fragrance Candy Hearts available for purchase online. When I took this out of its plastic wrapper and gave it a little sniff there was a faint smell of something citrusy but if I’m honest it wasn’t strong or very apparent.

In the bath. I had the warm water running when I put this in. As it got caught up in the current I could see this turning round and round like a windmill, while it released streams of different colours. It wasn’t as uniformed as what I thought it would be e.g separate straight lines of colour, but that’s a little hard to do if the poor thing is fighting for its life in my bath! While the different colours was released ( I saw green, purple and yellow ) some foam was created, and once the show had ended the water in the bath became a pretty sea of lilac coloured water topped off with fluffy foam.

On the skin. No issues for me, no irritation, and I continued with my usual after bathing ritual of moisturising with a body lotion while feeling very relaxed.

Did I get what I wanted or expected? One of the things I love while using bath products such as bath bombs is fragrance. Before use, during and after I didn’t really get much fragrance which I would have liked. But in all fairness this product has been in my stash for a good number of months so whether that affected the scent I’m not sure. In regards to the colour it provided I thought that was pretty but my normal bath bombs could have given the same effect this did but I was surprised it produced foam at all let alone the amount as I thought it would behave more like a bath fizzer and just give colour rather than a foaming bath bomb.

Recommended? I would happily try this out again in a different fragrance and use straight away once purchased. As mentioned it was only the smell or lack of that didn’t quite grab me but everything else I enjoyed. It’s affordable, kids would love this ( and the bigger ones too! ) for the colour aspect and overall I think it was fun. Fancy trying this out for yourself? Visit them on their Etsy store here.

Miss Patisserie Salted Caramel Bath Slab

If I never bought another bath bomb, fizzer, bath salts or truffle, I think I would survive! Miserably yes but I would survive. I have plenty of products to pamper my body and soothe my soul to keep me going for a while because I love bath times and I love adding things to my bath to make that time special and relaxing. So those closest to me are fully aware of my healthy obsession with these types of goodies. So you can understand why for Christmas 2019 I received a Salted Caramel Bath Slab from a company called Miss Patisserie.

A bath slab what? Take a bath bomb or fizzer, shape it into a block or bar ( to put it simply ) and this is a bath slab.

Packaging. The bath slab is loving wrapped in a beautifully multi coloured box with a cut out window on the front giving you a glimpse of whats inside. Very clean in look but quite pretty and eye catching too.

Appearance. WOOOOW! No seriously….WOWWWWW! I’ve actually had a bath slab from this company before but in a different fragrance. Very sweet in look but this one has got to be one of the most stunning bath products I have ever EVER seen and used! Think of a large, thick bar of chocolate, rectangular in shape and segmented clearly and defined so you can break pieces off. This is the structure of the slab. Multi coloured containing pinks, blues, purples, little dashes of green. None of which are uniformed, just beautifully laid out erratically like a solid piece of a galaxy. Almost dripping over this like runny icing over a cake is a trail of gold which stands out from the blend of stunning colours. And that’s not all. Deep breath….IT’S ALL GLITTERY!

Miss Patisserie Salted Caramel Bath Slab is BIG!

Scent. There’s definitely a slight sweet buttery caramel fragrance to this with an almost berry undertone to it with a dash of salt. Although I love my sweet fragrances I’m glad this wasn’t strong and was subtle which made it easy to use and enjoy because this particular fragrance can be very sweet, synthetic in smell and sickly which this isn’t.

In the bath. I popped in 4 squares and what I loved the most is it did what I like which was provide a mini show. They fizzed and danced about, they slightly frothed, they threw out many streams of different colours which eventually turned the water in the bath a relaxing almost cordial like purple colour. And my bathroom smelt yummy.

Bath time!

On the skin. I noticed this when I was in the water, my skin felt silky soft. That’s the only way I can describe how my skin felt in the water and also out of it. Once out, my skin felt as if it was nourished, protected even, the same way that you would feel if you put on a light body lotion. No stripping or drying of the skin, but a massive boost of hydration which I loved!

Added bonus. I realised after I got out of the bath my skin had a slight shimmer to it!

Recommended? Its important to say I didn’t want to use this. Breaking this up was like breaking my soul it hurt really badly because this bath slab literally is a work of art! This gave me what I wanted from a bath product. I had a great looking bath, a sweet smelling bath and it left my skin feeling fantastic. To be given this as a gift or to give as a gift is a must! Better still great way to treat yourself, so highly recommended as a purchase and don’t be surprised if you hear I’ve bought this for myself. And a great point to make, this slab will easily give one lucky person at least 4 to 6 baths, and only costs £6 so great value! You can buy this product direct from Miss Patisserie here, or head over to the ASOS website and while popping a skirt or pair of shoes in your basket why not add this beauty in it too here.

LUSH Geode Bath Bomb

I don’t go by the guise of mybeautywaxstash for no reason! I love products for the bath, body, face and home fragranced wax. I find these areas interesting, I like knowing more about them and seeing various products, and of course I enjoy using them. Trying different products from different brands/vendors is always good to do to spice up my product drawer. I tend to buy my pamering bath products more so from small vendors because I believe in supporting small businesses and the variety and quality of things such as bath bombs, bubble bars and soaps I’ve found to be very high with the vendors I have used so far. But sometimes its good to go back to the start, and one company we are all familiar with who probably started if not helped kick start the popularity of these types of products is LUSH. And passing by one of their stores in Manchester recently I needed no excuse to pop in and have a nosy.Three products came home with me including Geode Bath Bomb.

Why did I chose Geode Bath Bomb? After being helped by one of the store assistants ( who was amazing by the way! ), she showed me this bath bomb and recommended it. It was fairly new to the range at the time, visually it looked beautiful and very different compared to others being sold in the store. But seeing how this behaved in a bowl of water swung it for me and sealed the deal.

What is the Geode Bath Bomb? Geode is no ordinary looking bath bomb thanks to the addition of crystals. Designed to cleanse and purify the skin of the body, along with aiding relaxation of the mind and body, it also is supposed to provide a decadent bath time experience ( according to LUSH ).

Appearance. The top of it is almost flat, and has irregular, deep purple coloured small crystals embedded into it ( think the crystals are made from salt ). The bath bomb itself is not perfectly formed and circular from the top down. It has a handmade feel and look to it with slight lumps and bumps and not perfectly smoothed sides. Colour is almost a pale beige but glistens due to being covered with a light dusting of gold shimmer. Size is quite regular for a bath bomb if not slightly bigger.

Scent. No dominant scent to this bath bomb. I can get the tiniest hint of citrus but other than that I couldn’t give a description to what this smells like as I didn’t feel it had a scent as such.

In the bath. This is where the magic happened! This bath bomb bobbed and weaved through the water like it was swimming in the ocean. It fizzed, and at first you coud see it releasing an almost peach colour into the water along with a small amount of foam. This then turned into various streams of different colours such as pink and purple. Not only did this bomb now provide colour to the surface of the water, but underneath left trails of a gold shimmer, almost giving a liquid gold effect to it. So while this bath bomb continued with the visual show it also entertained me by providing audio, in the form of popping sounds thanks to it containing popping candy. Very different, fun to listen to and watch and made the fizzing of this even more special.

Bath time!

Once the fizzing and fun stopped… Never have I ever seen a rose gold coloured bath before. When I say bath of course I mean the water in the bath. It was so pretty, and it was a nice surprise to see that once bath time was over it wasn’t an issue cleaning up and everything washed away easily. And as for how my skin felt once pampering was over? Totally normal, not dry or irritated ( I have psoriasis, thankfully not a bad case though ).

Recommended? I’m glad I tried this bath bomb. To look at it its a lovely product and compared to others looks quite natural and earthy but with a touch of glamour thanks to the crystals. And how this behaved in the water and what it turned the bath water into was like watching a mini show which I loved. The thing that I did find disappointing was the lack of scent. It needed a stand out scent which was obvious ( not necessarily strong though but noticeable ) to match how great it looked and this would have provided an A Class bathing experience. So if you need fragrance in the bath, not one for you. But a pretty bath? Its worth trying out. For me though ideally I need the combination of the two to truly enjoy my 30 mins plus in the bath tub.

Lolly & Moo Crystal Ball Bath Bomb

These days you can buy bath bombs pretty much from anywhere. Department stores, discount stores, small independent businesses/vendors, even corner shops! And of course you have well known stores whose business is based on what you put on your body and what you use in the bath or shower. One of my latest bath time treats pulled out of my beauty wax stash comes from one of my favourite small businesses Lolly& Moo. I bought the whipped soap, so it seemed only fair to buy Crystal Bath Bomb as well.

Appearance. Size wise this is more jumbo than standard. Definitely bigger than the usual bath bombs as they are so much more substantial and I struggle to hold this within the palm of one hand. Beautifully coloured! Has what I would call a galaxy look to it. Purples, blues in various different shades running around it giving that type of effect with a little silver sparkle finishing it off. Very striking!

Crystal Bath Bomb

Scent. Same as its whipped soap sister, floral, clean, slight citrus and musk, so if you have tried the soap this is its perfect match. Inspired by a V&R fragrance which would make this ideal for the perfume lovers out there.

In the bath? Popped under warm running water, the fusion of colour and water is stunning! The colours on the bath bomb is what you get in the bath, and then they all run together to give the water a rich, deep and dark purple colour. Before getting to that point this does produce foam, which lasted for me quite some time.

Surprises? Well its not the size it is for no reason! Inside this beautiful mass is a secret. A hidden semi precious stone in the centre is revealed once the bath bomb disappears. Honestly, its so much better than opening up a Kinder egg! Not all of these bath bombs have the same stone in the middle, they are varied, which makes opening these up even more interesting and exciting.

Recommended? Yes! If you were to ever go for a bath bomb that was special, unique and striking, this is the one! Its big, beautiful, smells amazing and kind to the skin. And for £5.00 it’s great value for money for a treat for yourself or someone else. Available now on the Lolly & Moo website.
