I am a sucker for a pretty bath bomb! If you spend a few pounds on something that is a one use one time bath product, you want to enjoy it! And it always helps if it’s easy on the eye. Most people would rush to a well known store on the high street for their bath bomb fixes. I, on the other hand, try to purchase from smaller businesses who create and/or sell good quality bath goodies showcasing imagination and skill. I bought various bath bombs from a small company called Soul Energy earlier in the year. One item included was Aquamarine Geode Bath Bomb. Original price if I recall correctly was £5.95 but there was a discount applied at the time of purchase so got it a little bit cheaper.
Why did I buy this?
If you visit the various social media sites of Soul Energy, you won’t need to ask this question! All of their bath products are eye catching, vibrant, and not what you get from the high street. The look of this particular item caught my eye as I love the visual appearance of crystals. The colours were glorious and I just thought it resembled a piece of art.
What does this look like?
This bath bomb is inspired by crystal geodes, which always reminds me of a museum’s gift shop. It’s flat on the back, and somewhat flat on the top but not totally. Around the sides it’s shaped like the geode slices you can purchase. Not totally round, but smooth, and going in and out at certain points.
The middle dips down a little, having a bumpy texture to it. Not one block colour, but shades of blue, purple and grey with a delicate sprinkle of glitter and pigment in silvers and golds. Around the edge it pops more, thanks to the middle being outlined in black and around that a generous dusting of gold mica pigment finishes it off.
If you look at the rest of the bath bomb (the back and the sides), it’s a beautiful pale blue colour. Overall the bath bomb is beautifully made and decorated, eye catching, dare I even stay stunning, and a one off! And this is such a good size as it takes up more than the palm of my hand (and my hands are not small!).
A soft and delicate white floral scent to this bath bomb. White florals I tend to find to be the less heavier of the floral scent family, and also one of the cleanest and freshest types too. This is a scent most people would like, and especially those who don’t want something that’s highly fragranced. Personally I would have liked this stronger, but this would be great for the days my head can’t deal with it overpowering smells e.g hay fever, headaches, tiredness etc.
In the bath.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect with this one. Placing this on top of the water, it fizzed and gave off some lightly coloured foam. It even did a few turns in the bath tub. Very nice but not amazing I thought. Until I could see the thinnest of coloured streams coming out of it which I wasn’t expecting. These streams got bigger and wider and the colours were vibrant and popping! Blue, purple, green and white. Absolutely gorgeous to look at. On top of the show of colour, there was a little foam/bubbles produced, but not loads.
Once the colours disappeared the water merged into a tranquil and regal shade of aquamarine.
Fragrance wise I detected it faintly but not much.
The bathing experience itself was relaxing, the perfect set up for me to read a book and overall I had a nicely chilled out time. Non drying and irritating on the skin (in the bath or out), and didn’t stain the bath either (result!).
If you love your baths, and your bath bombs like I do, this should be a must! A simple tennis ball shaped, one block colour bath bomb sometimes won’t do. And a little artistry can set someone up for a great bathing experience. For a gift this would blow someone’s mind as it really is a beauty. And a much deserved treat for yourself. So yes, recommended!
Like many independent vendors, especially if they make their own products, their stock changes regularly. So what is available one day may not be available another. And I don’t see this particular one on the website anymore. BUT, what I would say is every single piece on the website looks amazing and the quality is there to see without a doubt. Guaranteed there will be something for everyone, question is, which bath bomb is for YOU? Soul Energy.
