HOW TO USE?
Fill the bathtub with water. Fill it as deep as you like and choose a comfortable temperature. If you are going to leisure in the bath for longer, go for a bit hotter water, and to make your bathing session maximum relaxing, put a bath pillow into your tub.
Drop the bomb of your choice into the water. Once in the water, it will start bubbling and fizzing, and eventually, it will dissolve saturating the water with salts, butter, and essential oils sealed inside. How long does it take for a bath bomb to set? Usually, it is for about several minutes. However, you are free to enter the tub when the bomb is still fizzing.
Find a comfortable position and relax. You can either read a book, listen to your favorite music if you have a shower speaker, or simply lay back and plunge into serenity peacefully soaking in warm water and letting it ease your entire body.
As the water naturally cools down, it is time to get out of the bathtub. You do not necessarily have to rinse in the shower after using a bath bomb. However, if you used a colored bomb, the one with glitter or a black bath bomb, it’s recommended to do so.
When you drain the water, clean the tub. Simply rinse it with warm water.
Being an extremely popular beauty product in recent years, bath bombs can be also used outside of the tub. Below, we’ve summed up several alternative bath bomb applications that will be especially useful for those who are not much of a bath person or only have a shower, yet still don’t want to miss that bath bomb trend.
