These hypnotic bath bomb videos will make you want to jump in the tub ASAP.
Anytime you’re able to squeeze in a bath is a joyous occasion, but how do you make them even more fun? With a crazy bath bomb! We recently came across three videos of bath bombs in action from Lush, the queen of bath products, that will have you looking for a tub stat. But whether you can hop in for a soak or not, these hypnotic videos are somewhat relaxing all on their own–no water needed!
Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt
Made with cocoa butter and olive oil, along with a honey-toffee scent, this glitter-coated egg is so luxurious it would probably even please Veruca Salt. We know what you’re thinking: this is going to coat my whole tub in glitter. Don’t worry, the plastic-free, seaweed-based glitter is only one layer deep and melts after it’s been in the water awhile. It will be launching soon—just in time for Easter. But grab one while you can because they’ll only be available for a limited time.
Ectoplasm Bath Bomb
If you’re not an expert in terminology of the afterlife, according to Google, ectoplasm is a “supernatural viscous substance that is supposed to exude from the body of a medium during a spiritualistic trance.” So aptly named, instead of dissolving completely when you drop it in the water, this bath bomb leaves behind a purple, gooey substance that you can squish between your fingers. And while it may look scary, it’s actually made of mineral-rich carrageenan seaweed that softens your skin. It also leaves behind a refreshingly crisp grapefruit scent. Unfortunately you’ll only be able to enjoy watching this bomb on the video for now as it’s still in development in the U.K.
Valentine’s Day Bath Bombs
While Valentine’s Day has passed, Lush’s special holiday bath bombs for the occasion are still for sale! The Rose Bombshell ($8; lushusa.com) is filled with real yellow rose petals that float around after the outer shell fizzes away. The Over And Over ($9; lushusa.com) leaves a pink trail as it rolls through the yellow froth. The Lover Lamp ($9; lushusa.com) leaves red cocoa butter hearts floating around as it disintegrates in the water.
