Would I call myself a bit of a bath bomb snob? I love baths and whatever goes into it I want it to be good in quality and look. But quality doesn’t always have to come at a cost. So what I try to do is not discount the cheaper bath bombs or fizzers out there and be open minded. And this is why I’ve bought some bath products from Primark, including their Guava Peach Bath Fizzer. £1.50 for 200g.
Why did I buy this?
I find myself wandering around the beauty section in Primark more and more every time I visit my local store. The bath bombs/fizzers and bubble bars always look quite appealing, and this one caught my attention because of it’s look and size.
How does this look?
Hexagon in shape and absolutely MASSIVE! Over 2 cms in depth and over 10 cm across. This bath fizzer is in a cute shade of purple, with the middle of it covered in what appears to be salt granules. These are in three different colours, which are purple, orange and yellow. Quite a simple design but very eye catching.
I’m not going to lie, I’m quite disappointed with the lack of scent with this one. What I got was a chalky scent, that powdery smell you can get if you sniff a bath bomb. There is the smallest hint of fragrance but it’s not really obvious. Slightly fruity but honestly pretty insignificant.
In the bath
I popped this on top of an already run, warm bath. This spun around releasing foam from the top and it’s sides, and slowly turned the clear water into a shade of blush pink. I didn’t expect it to do much in the water but what it did do I liked and enjoyed watching it.
I did notice the fragrance of this was slightly stronger in the water than before it was used, but not by much.
Sitting in the bath with this bath fizzer, I didn’t feel it added to my relaxation physically or mentally. I probably enjoyed this more watching it without me being in the bath than being in it. It didn’t add much to my bathing experience.
My skin has been temperamental recently so was concerned this bath fizzer would irritate or dry my skin out in some way. It did neither. It added nothing to the skin (fragrance, moisture) but took nothing away from it as well.
If this had a proper fragrance to this I think this bath fizzer would have been so much better. How can something look so pretty but not have the scent to match?
There are different types of bath bomb/bath fizzer uses. One type will throw anything in the bath, even if it sounds and looks like a brick and they want something cheap and cheerful. The other goes for what it looks like and is happy with coloured water as the end result. And there are others who want something that gives them joy from the moment they look at it, from when it performs in the bath and provides them with a sensory experience once they slip into the bath tub. This bath fizzer isn’t for the last person. If you want something that looks nice, colours the bath, does a bit of a dance and colours water get this. Don’t want to spend £4.00 plus on a bath bomb and go cheap? This ticks the box. But if you want something special, spend more and buy a better quality bath fizzer or bath bomb from somewhere else.
