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.
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.
