Bathing The Alternative Way With Hex Bombs

Bathing The Alternative Way With Hex Bombs

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.

    Can you believe I have never had a bath bomb?! I’ve bought them for my mum and others but never used one myself due to sensitive skin. The colour of Bathory is amazing! (glad it didn’t stain!)

    This post has made me realise how much I miss having a bathtub. We only have this huge shower in our house, but we’re planning to refit the bathroom so I can get myself a bathtub in there, I’m definitely going to treat myself to the Macabre bathbomb when we finally have a bath!

    I’ve not heard of this brand before, but the bombs sound so interesting. I am addicted to baths and wonderful bath products. The color of the Bathory bomb is amazing and it sounds like the smell is as well x

    I’ve never tried any bath bombs before. I love the colour of this one, I bet they are lovely and smell great 🙂 I keep meaning to treat me and my daughter to one each.

    Oh wow! The colour that your bath water changed to was fab- so vivid, more so than I’ve seen from brands like Lush! xxx

    Oh my word! I feel like I need one of these for my next halloween party at home to fill the bath with! Not quite sure I’d like using them any other time – might freak me out a little haha

  17. April 3, 2017 / 8:46 am

    I love how vibrant that red is! I’m going to have to buy some of their bath products!

    I think the colours would put me off, they look a little scary. Clever idea though.

    Wow, I love how deep the colours are! I’ll be looking out for these.

    Wow, unusual! I’m not sure if I’d feel totally happy with bathing in black water 🙂 It’s cool to see brands doing something different though and anything that smells nice is good with me.

    I am not sure how much I would like to get into a blood red (or even black) bath! However, I can most certainly see the appeal for some people – they are certainly something different!

    Wow, that colour is amazing. You can see it plume out in the water. I know three girls who would love this and as a mum I’m always happier if it’s ‘no stain’

  24. April 4, 2017 / 6:50 pm

    These look so amazing and colours are so vivid :))

    Not heard of these ones. Glad they don’t stain the bath and it’s easy to wash off if it goes everywhere x

    Oh wow, these look fantastic! I stopped using regular bath bombs due to having to scrub the bath to within an inch of its life afterwards to get the stains off, so these sound like they might be a fab alternative to try 🙂

  27. April 5, 2017 / 1:54 pm

    These look amazing! i love trying out new bath products.

  28. April 5, 2017 / 4:27 pm

    They look epic and I like that they are different to your traditional cutesy bath bombs as well! Gorge x
