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.
