Sunday Soak - Bay Rum Bath Bomb

This is my first attempt at scheduling a post so hope it turned up in the right place ok!

I'm always very excited to find new bath places and on a recent trip to Northallerton on the tea trail (more on that soon!), I spotted this cute little shop called 'Bath Before Beauty' and obviously I was drawn in to pick up a bomb or two!

I was hit by the amazing aroma of the shop on opening the door, and a quick peruse of the available options provided a range of fabulous sounding scents for me to choose from such as chocolate orange, honey and cinnamon (these also came home with me!) and this one - Bay Rum.
Not my usual sugary sweet scent of choice, but I figured this would be as close as I'm going to get for a long while to tropical island relaxation!

It fizzed up nice and orange when it first hit the water, with the blue of the bomb coming out next but when it all settled down there wasn't much left in the way of colour. I'd have preferred the scent to hang around a bit longer/stronger but I know some people find that quite overpowering so this might be right up their street, but the water was left nice and soft and this was overall a very pleasant bathing experience! Plus, at £1.90 per bomb these compare very well price wise with competitors!
I can't see that Bath Before Beauty have a website as such but you can see their products on their facebook page and make an order that way, or try dropping them a line on twitter!


  1. Love the orange color of the water :)

  2. I really need to head down to Lush soon, I feel like it has been forever since I had some bath bombs.


  3. What a fab price! I love the orange colour of the water, too - shame it didn't last too long.
