I don’t normally come down hard on products because I know they are a matter of personal preference but Bloop de Paris bath bombs seriously bombed big time for me!
The bath bombs are large globes that come in different flavours and colors. I picked up Lavender (blue) and Rose (pink) for RM14.90 each. I’ve never felt anything more undeserving of my money 🙁
Firstly the scent is strong. I’m fine with strong scents but it smelt fine at the store and later took on a very chemical smell when I took it home – like chemicals in a lab. It was cloying and I had to hide the bag or gag everytime I passed by where I stored it.
Secondly it was useless. Bath bombs popularized by Lush serve to add scent and color and to soften your bath water; and fizz in a very fascinating manner when dropped into your bath water. The bath bombs by Bloop de Paris fizzled out upon touching water and turned the bath water a lurid blue and neon pink with that awful chemical smell wafting around the bathroom.
I was almost afraid to get into the bath for fear of melting away like in some horror movie – you know how in Batman the Joker fell into a pot of green acid that turned him into the Joker? I felt that way when I saw the tub water. I did not end up with any superpowers or super manical delusions to take over the world though 😛
So that made my happy bath plans bomb big time! I washed it off as quickly as I could – I could not stomach going to sleep with that chemical smell lingering on my skin and I did not want the chemicals staying on my skin either.
I don’t have anything good to say about the Bloop de Paris bath bombs except to say purchase at your own peril. I certainly will not again. If you had a happy experience with these, please feel free to share.

Oh no!! can you imagine all the colors and chemicals seeping into the hair and skin.
*shudder* It was what was seeping through my mind at the time too!
hmm i dont und how to use this. just drop the bomb into water? then it will melt? how many times can this be used? (tho im not going to buy, but im curious)
Yes, just drop the ball into the water and it should fizz up and add color or fragrance to the water and soften the water. Its like bath salts that fizz and its one time use only.
yuck!!! so weird! me dun like. i thought it wud be a good alternative for Lush’s, but i guess not.
Not a substitute indeed!
reading your description makes me cringe!!!
hee hee meellllttiiiingg…. ! great writeup Paris. I confess I love it when you rant!
I felt like the Wicked Witch of the East – I’m mellltttiiiiinggggg…………….. LOL… And thank you 🙂
HAHA! Your analogy cracked me up! I have a couple of bath bombs from Lush which I haven’t used–thanks for reminding me! 😀
Still here? Only after Baby’s arrived yes? You don’t want Baby arriving smelling of Lush!
I was excited to see the picture until I read the rest of the review! Lols at turning into Joker. Hah!
I’m imagining your experience and I gather that not-bathing and being sweaty would have felt a lot better!
It might be why I cannot count! 😛
I guess just use your bubble bath, is much safer. Right?
Sigh, can’t use bath bombs, salts, etc here. Can’t even take long baths. Bugger the water restriction 🙁
am dying to but lush products…. when r they coming to malaysia i wonder… and where can we get bubble bars or bathbombs (besides bloop)
