Cookie Monster

This was my first encounter with Bomb Cosmetics and I was wary of comparing them to Lush and getting disappointed – their products and approach to business are relatively similar but Bomb cosmetics is definitely the smaller of the two and it's less well known with fewer stores and online reviews. Cookie monster is a sugary sweet bath blasters that has a very distinctive Girly scent that’s made up of vanilla, coconut, white chocolate and candyfloss. Surprisingly I could actually smell all of these notes with the coconut and candyfloss really coming out when it was in the water.

At £2.19 (£2.49 if you purchase online) this isn’t what you’d call a cheap bath, particularly if compared to Lush where the bath bombs are a little bigger for around the same price however this really was one of the best bath bombs I've tried to date!

The best bit about the cookie monster(apart from the adorable name) is how it performed and the effect it had on my skin. It fizzled for a about 10 minutes- alot longer than any Lush bombs I've had, and it filled the bath with a strong girly scent. Unlike most bath bombs I’ve tried the scent most definitely isn’t subtle – just like the colour of the water once you dropped the bomb in. You get a bright blue bath which I loved even if I was worried about it staining the bath as I’ve heard a lot of horror stories from other bloggers who have had that happen after using bath bombs with cheaper ingredients. But the only thing that lingered was the scent; both on my skin and all around my bathroom :) I’m definitely going to be exploring more of their products – if only because I love the atmosphere in their quaint little stores, the strength of the scent and how soft it made my skin feel after us - So expect quite a few more reviews of their products soon!

Overall I’d definitely recommend if you want a fun little treat and love strong scents, like myself. They have several stores all around the UK and you can find your closest one by checking out their website.

I haven't tried Bomb Cosmetics, think I may have to give them a go!

xNTA said...

I'm not a bath-taker (not that I don't bathe, I just prefer showering). I always have this weird paranoia that I'm basically wallowing in my own filth hahahaha. Oh Lord. But you know, I've never tried a bath bomb before. Was it very moisturizing? Thanks!

Have a great one! x NTA

Gawgus things... said...

Sounds super scrummy! I really struggle to find products whose scents last so I'll definitely have to try and track some of this down.. xx

Hannah said...

Is it odd to say that this looks like fun?
I always liked playing in the bathtub when I was little. This is like the grownup version.
