    A Recent Review from a happy customer

    "Having injured my calves on a recent mountain climb and having tried every thing to ease the pain from massage to Epsom salts, I found nothing worked. That was until I used this arnica gel. It worked a treat and within 24 hours had relieved the pain in both my legs.

    I would highly recommend this product for the relief of muscular pains. It was very effective and swift working. A wonderful product."

    SunkissedBodyButterBlog

    The bomb cosmetics sunkissed shimmering body butter is a beautiful, nourishing cream that does exactly what is expected with an extra bonus of essential oils.

    I tried and tested this beautiful lotion for a while, because I have particularly dry skin so it takes a little bit longer for a products benefits to be seen and I can say with this product there are definitely a lot of benefits.

    With a shea butter base the butter glides on in a thick emollient and melts into your skin, feeling luxurious and rich. The natural shea butter also ensures that your skin is moisturised and feels smooth without exposing it to chemically made moisturising elements. Even on my dry skin, I have noticed a huge difference. I no longer have dry, even flaky patches but now soft, smooth skin…which is especially impressive considering the changing weather we are getting here at the moment.

    Next let’s talk about the scent. In this product there are patchouli and mandarin essential oils, which do wonders for the smell of the product.
    It’s a musky but still summery scent that isn’t too strong that it is all you can smell, but every now and then you do catch a little whiff! The scent
    definitely lasts throughout the day as well, which is nice. The essential oils I mentioned are also really helpful to smooth and restore your skin in a natural way, which is a nice added bonus!

    Now, the fun part about this body butter that sets it apart, is the cool little glitters running through the whole pot! With gold and blue iridescence this moisturiser is perfect for putting over your whole body before a big event, I especially love the way it looks on my legs. It is something that just adds an extra touch of shimmer for that dose of glamour. And with a tan the effect is even better!

    The best thing about this whole product, which is the last thing I have to mention, is that it has not been tested on animals! So not only is the product itself amazing but it’s kind to bunnies too!

  3. If you love a long relaxing bath, take a look at our Online shop to order any of the products mentioned in this post.

    I’ve recently tried out one Fizzy Foam’s bestsellers, The ‘Over the Rainbow’ Blaster by Bomb Cosmetics and Just had to write a review for you!

    bethan rainbow 1

    First, we need to talk about how cute this is before you even use it, the rainbow, the glitter the little blue sky in the middle all looks adorable. It kind of made me not want to use it because it looked so cute on the side of my bath.

    When I got over the cute and released this bomb into the bath, this beautiful blaster fills the whole bath with glitter of small gold stars and blue strips which instantly disperse into the water. Then the white section starts to effervesce meaning the blue centre and rainbow spins around up and down the tub.

    There is no colour change at first but you can see the moisturising milky effect on the water. As the blue starts to dissolve, that is when the water starts to change to a baby blue hue.

    This relaxing Bath Bomb contains jasmine and clary sage essential oils to create a calming scent that is detectable but not overwhelming. The scent is light and simple, not heavy and sickly sweet.

    The effect on the skin is also moisturising and softening, which you can feel even while still in the bath, although there is no greasy film which you can find on some bath bombs.

    However, the fun glitter I mentioned earlier definitely becomes a little bit of a pain the little flecks grab onto your beautifully moisturised skin and stay there! So maybe pick a day that you don’t have a big function afterwards, unless you want to look like a glitterball. I definitely found a few pieces in my hair as well! On that note definitely make sure you rinse out your bath as soon as you get out otherwise there will be glitter stuck to the sides everywhere.

    I will say the glitter didn’t really bother me as I stayed in for a pamper night, and I loved this blaster I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a few bath goodies.
