Halloween. This seems to have built up momentum over the last few years in the UK. Not as massive as in the US, but definitely celebrated and enjoyed by many over here. Personally, I am not a fan. I’ve never found it appealing and overall it’s not really for me. But considering how the year 2020 has unfolded, my icy heart has thawed somewhat. My mind has been more open to things it would normally be closed to. One thing I can definitely enjoy without a doubt is Halloween themed bath and body products. I couldn’t help but order a few pieces recently from a company called Druid and The Witch. One item I purchased was their Double Mummy Bath Bomb in the fragrance of Candy Hearts.
Why this bath bomb? It looked cute in a fun way! Not scary, not gruesome just super cute! And I loved the idea of this being a double bath bomb, which made me think possibly 2 bath time uses rather than 1?
What does it look like? Roughly 3 inches in length and 2 inches in width, this is typical in regards to a bath bomb in certain ways. It’s quite weighty, and has a chalky like look and texture to it. But its actual design, shape and appearance is of a mummy. Think of cartoon like version. White in colour with bandages molded around it. Two beady eyes finish off the exterior to it. Running around the edges of the middle of the outside of it, you can see red splatters, almost blood like.
The bath bomb on reverse has the same features because guess what? This literally is 2 bath bombs sandwiched together. Take the cellophane wrapper off and you have 2 independent bath bombs, totally separate and ready to be enjoyed!
Scent. I could smell this even with it being wrapped in cellophane. It smells just like Love Hearts the sweets! Fruity, fizzy, sweet confectionery just like the packet you can pick up from the shops! Yum.
In the bath. I popped this under warm running water. As I expected the little mummy fizzed and bubbled away, producing white foam. What I found exciting was to see a train of red slowly bursting out of the bath bomb into the water. This started off quite delicately and sparse, and then exploded into full on colour! What greeted my eyes looked like a blood bath! Not a deep,crimson red. But more of a pinky/red which I thought was brilliant!
The foam didn’t last too long as the water became, well, a bath tub of coloured water. At this stage it was more bath soak like rather than bath bomb. It still had that pink/red tint to it which made my kids give a side wards glance probably wondering if I was still alive!
Skin after use. Not dried. Mind, body and skin came out feeling quite relaxed with no urgency to throw body lotion on.
Cleaning up. With the water turning into such a vibrant colour, I only realised when washing out the bath how it was so easy. No staining, no hard work or scrubbing, nothing! Anyone who uses bath bombs or other bath products which colour the water are fully aware sometimes clean up is a work out in itself but not with this one.
Could this be better? I would love if the fragrance of this was a little stronger. It smelt nice before I used it and continued to do so while it went for a swim in the bath with me. But if the fragrance was punchier I would love this more.
Something to add. Who knows what would happen if I threw in BOTH Mummy bath bombs! More foam? More fragrance? Deeper shade of red? No idea but glad one remains for future use!
Recommended? This was so much fun! My first Halloween themed bath product which won’t be the last! The look of it was great. Ideal for not only adults but children too. The effect n the bath was pretty gruesome but in a good way. And the fact you potentially could have two uses from this made this even more special. So it’s a yes from me!
This Double Mummy Bath Bomb cost £4.50, which effectively makes it £2.25 each. Brilliant price!
