Review: Fizzbutter Bath Bombs

Fizzbutter Haul
In general, I prefer showers over baths because they're so much faster.  But it's been cold and I've been a little stressed out at work so I thought taking baths might be good for the soul.  I've mainly been using Lush bath products but wanted to find a cheaper alternative.  Enter Fizzbutter.  At $3.69 per bath bomb, they are half the price of Lush.  Shipping was $4 and everything arrived in a really big box stuffed with packing peanuts so none of the bombs were cracked or broken. 

I ordered the following scents:
  • Lullaby - a relaxing lavender scent
  • Mango Coconut
  • Theirry Mugler Angel type
  • Honey Ginger Champagne
  • Lush Jasmine
  • Calm Bomb - a refreshing floral
Size comparison L-R:  Lush Honey Lumps (6.3 oz), Fizzbutter Lullaby (8 oz) and Lush Cinders (3.1 oz)
Compared to Lush bombs, most of the Fizzbutter ones are larger at 8 oz.  Some people cut them in half but I'm too lazy to do that so I throw the whole thing in the tub.  They are denser than Lush bombs and sink straight to the bottom.  Not sure if this is good or bad.  The first one I used was the "Lush Jasmine" scent.  It fizzed well, smelled lovely and turned the water a very light purple.  The scent didn't really linger on my skin for very long but I am fine with that since I use scented lotions and body sprays. 

The Fizzbutter bombs are highly moisturizing.  You can see a layer of oil on top of the water.  People with oily skin may not like this but I have dry skin so I looove it.  I still use a moisturizer afterwards but if you have normal to oily skin, you may not need to.

The one thing that I like about Lush is that their bombs come in a wider variety of scents and shapes. Some even come with confetti and glitter although I don't really care for that since it's a pain to clean up.  Overall though, I recommend Fizzbutter and would purchase from them again.
