I know sometimes Musings has many posh, high end cosmetics and body products so lately I’ve been slowly incorporating cheaper options into my entries! Items that I use and have found effective that are high quality and inexpensive!
The Muse loves a good deal. When it’s a good deal and works well she likes to share it with the world!
I know of one lovely reader in particular who was looking for options aside from Lush for bath bombs!
The weather is getting colder now and nothing feels better to me then sinking into some hot water at the end of a hard day with a gorgeous bath bomb fizzing away while I indulge in reading some good book or magazine!
As much as I adore Lush bath bombs I have to admit that they are expensive at $6 and upwards per a bath! I give my utmost approval and recommendation when it comes to Lush and I can’t say enough good things about the high quality bombs they sell however when you’re ready to venture into something a bit more unusual and inexpensive you can wander over to Fantasy Bath and you can stock up on some wonderful bombs for half the price as some other shops!
Now Fantasy Bath has an array of products but I’m going to be concentrating on the Bath Bombs as I’ve tried those and find them fantastic!
Now as much as I love bombs it deserves to be mentioned that they also sell fizzing bath powder which works in the same fashion as a bomb but it’s in powder form! I’ve tried the bath powder and I must say I really enjoy it! They sell it in 1lb and 3lb bags which gives you plenty of powder in a ziploc baggie that you can use as little or much as your heart desires!
These bombs are highly moisturizing and when you step out of the tub and dry off your skin will be quite happy! I normally don’t have to moisturize after my bath with one of these as they leave my skin feeling quite dewy and slick.
A majority of the bombs are 9oz in size at around $4.25-$4.95 per bomb that’s quite a nice deal because if you’re being frugal you can get two baths out of one bomb. Lush bombs are 6.3oz in size and run about $5.50-6.95 and upwards. You can see you’re getting a larger bomb for a little less of the price which is, as Martha Stewart would say, a good thing!
One of my favs in the lineup at Fantasy Bath is Snow Wonder! Yum this is so good! The bomb is a combo of Cranberry, Apple, Yuzu, Mint, and Amber. For me I just get tart, fruity yum! This is something I’d normally not pick for myself because I’m not a fan of amber however when I sink into a tub full of Snow Wonder all I smell is a cocktail of tart fruits and almost a hint of some sort of floral! This is a strong, lingering bomb that will leave your hair (if you’re a dunker) and body beautifully scented for hours (even a day) after your bath!
Wake Up Sleepy Head is another of favorite of mine and the perfect bath experience if you’re looking for an exhilarating, wake up bath! Sometimes you’ve had a long day at work on a Friday and you really want to go out but your body is protesting! This be the perfect bath bomb to wake you up, refresh you, and ready you for a late night of Friday fun! This bomb is scented with grapefruit, lemons, lime, tangerines and a hint of vanilla! I don’t quite get the vanilla when I sink into the tub but I most definitely get the eye opening tart citrus combo that jolts me in the face when I’m lazing in the tub! This is a delightful bomb that the Muse fully enjoys and recommends!
These are just two of my favorites from Fantasy Bath but do look out for some others that are fantastic as well such as Peaches n’ Cream, Margaritaville, and Key Lime Pie!
As fantastic as Lush is you won’t ever find something as foody as Key Lime Pie in a bath bomb from them 😉
