Bath Water Color
The bomb I purchased was light yellow and light brown so I wasn't expecting much change to the bath water color, I did notice a slight change to water color but nothing disturbing - it was about the same as the bath bombs I've been making this month.
The Lush bath bomb was much larger than the ones I make, so it fizzed for the time I had the water running. I make smaller bath bombs, so they don't fizz as long but I think it is more enjoyable to have a couple of bombs and to stretch out the fizz time. So I think my Fizz time for the size of my bomb is just about perfect, so if I'm using a Lush bath bomb as my comparison for my bath bombs, I think I've got that part of the recipe down.
Lush completely failed the tub residue test, when I got out of the tub in Chicago, it looked like I had just rinsed off after coming in from the beach. I don't have any residue right now, but I'm still working on additives. I know as I work through the details of my bath bombs I need to make sure there is no residue as it is not fun to have residue in your tub after a bath.
Overall bath experience
The overall bath experience was not remarkable with the Lush bath bomb, the aroma was a little to perfumy for my taste and the rest of the experience was ok - nothing to write home about. I'm going to continue to work on my bombs so that the experience is positively breathtaking for my clients. I think I'm on target to have one of the best bath bomb's on the market for October 1st.
If you are interested in testing some for my bath bombs (I can only take so many baths) give me a call or send me an email and I'll put some in the mail for you.
