When I have the time, indeed when I make the time, to have a soak in my bath, I like to use pampering products because it helps me to relax and unwind and cheer me up. I also like these bath time products to smell lovely and feel nice on my skin to help make the whole experience that much nicer and worthwhile.
So when I was asked to test the Bomb Cosmetics Love In Vegas
gift set I agreed as I know it would give me the perfect excuse to make the time to enjoy a long hot soak in my bath after a busy, long and tiring day with my children. Not only that, but I always enjoy receiving fun bath products like bath bombs because not only do they look great but they add a bit of fun to the proceedings! Visit this link
The Love In Vegas set comes in a gorgeously wrapped and packaged box with a tag which shows you the contents inside – even though this wasn’t actually a present to me I still felt excited as a tore open the gift wrap to see what wonders lay inside ready for me to try out!
The bath bombs, blasters and soap do not disappoint and not only do they look fab but they each contain essential oils designed to soothe your skin and make it soft and supple and make you feel sexy and loved! Each one is individually hand made so no two soaps, bombs, blasters or creamers are the same.
|my heart melted from the heat off my bath!
This is quite a large bath bomb and as soon as it hits the water it starts to bubble and fizz and evaporate its pink fizziness into the running bath water. It also releases two tiny rose buds which is a really lovely (romantic) touch, Containing ylang ylang and vetiver, not only did the water smell lovely as I waited to get in but my skin felt really soft afterwards which was lovely as I suffer with dry skin.
As soon as I picked this out of the box I did get some of the stars come off in my hand so I kind of had an inkling that this would be a bit messy in my bath by the time I pulled the plug!
|a night in my bath with some stars!
Again, as soon as it comes in to contact with hot water the bath creamer bubbles away in to nothing releasing lots of teeny tiny gold stars into the water aswell as a luxurious creamy mix containing shea and cocoa butters, together with ylang ylang (which supposedly contains aphrodisiac properties!) and pure rose essential oils.
This bath bomb really did leave my skin feeling nourished and silky smooth and the smell was really lovely. I guess my only slight complaint would be the gold stars – its not that I mind having to wash them off my bath afterwards, its just that the next day I am still finding them on my person (indeed I think they may have gone where the sun don’t shine! *ahem!) and on the floor from where I stepped out of the bath last night! BUT if I had been going out afterwards or having a ‘romantic’ night in with my partner then I think the way my skin smelt, felt and glowed would have made for a very sexy evening!!
|No dirty Vegas in my hands!
I do like a nice smelling handmade soap and glycerin ones always look so pretty, and the ruby vegas soap is no exception. It smells quite sophisticated and is a 2-1 soap really as the centre is filled with pure essential oils to make you feel glitzy and ready for anything, just like the city of Vegas itself.
This bath blaster is similar to the rose bud bath bomb in how it quickly turns the bath water a pale shade of pink. Yet this bedazzled beauty contains lots of pink glitter which look very pretty in the bath I must admit, although as with my comments on the night with the starts creamer, it is the kind of bath bomb where the glittery bits keep on giving well into the next day! But this asides, it has a yummy scent using the aphrodisiac properties of ylang ylang and sweet orange oils and again my skin, although a tad glittery and pink, did feel very sexy and smooth again.
This is the smallest of all the love in vegas goodies but that doesn’t stop it from packing a romantic punch as the smell and the creaminess of the bath water makes you feel very pampered indeed. The creamer also releases Morrocan rose petals into the bath water and pure frankincense oil bringing a touch of the eastern delight to your skin. Very pretty indeed and again super soft skin for me!
*Please note that you do not need to use all of each bath products in one go, as you can break chunks off to make the pampering experience each bath time last longer*
At just £9.99 a set I think this bath bomb set is excellent value for money and I would be very pleased to receive one myself for Valentines Day, or indeed a birthday or mothers day.
