Butterbombs! Even the name is adorable. The product itself – little scoops that look like ice cream or cookie dough – are even more adorable. So much so that even though I am not, historically, a bath person (a traumatic bath time roach incident in my gross college apartment left me with no desire to ever soak in a tub of water ever again THANK YOU IT CAME OUT OF THE DRAIN), I picked up a few of these anyway, because… cute! And I want to be a bath person, really. They seem so relaxing. Plus, again, cute.
I have four from the initial release around Valentine’s Day and two from the recent Spring release. I’ve gone back and forth about whether I should review them all at once or by scent, and I eventually decided to just do a sort of collection overview each time new ones are released. This review will cover the butterbombs I purchased from the Valentine’s Day collection: Toasted, Sea Salt Brownies, White Bluberry, and A Simple Rose.
In the order they appear above, left to right:
A Simple Rose: “Bulgarian rose absolute supported by Egyptian geranium in a base of amyris wood.” Gorgeous, fresh rose. Love this one, it’s my favorite.
Toasted: “Reminiscent of warm milk, aromatic rice and burnt sugar.” Smelled creamy and toasty through the wrapper but once I sniffed the actual butterbomb I smelled basmati rice, burnt sugar, and milk. It’s warm and a little bitter.
Sea Salt Brownies: “Dark chocolate brownie accord with supporting notes of cocoa c02, a gentle touch of coffee co2 and speckled with sea salt.” Semi-sweet chocolatey scent. Not overpowering or fake.
White Blueberry: Blueberries awash with white vanilla sugar, cream and a sprig of white thyme.” This also smelled creamier through the wrapper, but the bomb itself smells fresh, herbal, and a bit tangy. This is my second favorite.
And here’s what Haus of Gloi has to say about these little guys:
Toss these little scoops in hot bath water for a fizzy, slightly foamy and decadently moisturizing bath. Crumble under running bath water for best results! Please be cautious when moving around or standing in the tub, these little bombs can make things slippery!
