I know I’ve rambled on enough times about my love for relaxing baths’ and all things Lush, but they aren’t the only brand on the scene. There are so many brands making bath bombs’ it’s hard to know where to look but few have caught my eye more than Hex Bath Bombs.
I first discovered Hex when Instagram and my online feeds’ were filled with people bathing in black bath water, yes that’s right black. Goth or not that’s pretty cool and definitely unusual. Every time I went to order online they’d be out of stock or you’d need to place a large order to get them. But it wasn’t just the black bath bombs which caught my eye there were red ones which looked a bit like blood and some more unusual colours like dark purples and greens’. No candy floss colours and sugar smelling treats here.
In all honesty, I kind of forgot about the brand until I was the London Edge alternative clothing and lifestyle event last month where the brand were showcasing. The ladies on the stall were so friendly and they had the entire collection of bath bombs’ available at the event to look at, smell and of course purchase. I tried not to go too overboard because I always have way more bath products that I can ever use so I just picked up three to try out the brand.
Of course, I got the Black As Your Soul bath bomb which started off the craze, alongside this I got the Blood Red Bathory and a dark purple glittery bomb called Macabre. The colour pigmentation is incredibly strong and they start to fizz the second they hit the water.
The first bath bomb I tried was Bathory and as you can see in the photo above it’s a perfect blood red colour. I worried a little about the colour staining my bath as it splattered up the sides but it wiped off so easily so no worry about stains. The main thing I noticed was how amazing the scent was, it was so fruity and not at all chemicaly like I thought it might have been. I still have the other two to try out but if they’re half as good as the red I know I’m in for a treat.
