I love a good fizz, especially now that the weather is turning randomly chilly around these parts. And everyone loves a good mani bomb. Baroness X has been crafting some amazing scents, and today I'm giving the pistachio macaroon scent a go. The tl;dr is that I want to eat this bomb.
(promotional samples ahead)
These usually come in packs of two...but I already used one before I remembered that I am supposed to be a blogger...they just smell too good, ya'll. The scent is described as "buttery cookie, pistachio, almond" and I totally agree. There are very few things that smell this much like a damned cookie. Plus, the whole room will smell softly like cookies, which will make everyone in your house sad when there aren't actually any cookies...and thats ok with me. <evil laughter>
Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, kokum butter, dead sea salt, sweet almond oil, mango butter, kaolin clay, fragrance oil, colorant
Instructions for Use: Use a part or whole of the mani bomb and a small bowl of warm water*. Drop the mani bomb in and soak your hands for at least three minutes. Blot gently dry and rub in any remaining oil and butter for a luxurious spa-like experience.
*I tested out an early prototype, so there is a lot more butter and oil in mine than the ones you can grab now. Which is better, really, because not all of my butters melted in the allotted time. I also tried the first one in cool (sub 70°F water because surprise summer) and it still fizzed and mostly dissolved...and any bits leftover I just used as an impromptu scrub. Nothing was wasted and I smelled delicious. The risk of self-consumption is real.
Now, for the demo!
Ever wonder why my videos are a little weird...its because I'm afraid to dangle my camera over a bowl of steamy water. But I will totally dangle my twice-as-expensive-computer-phone right over it, secured only by a cheap flexy arm...yeah. I don't make sense.
What is your favorite scent when it comes to mani bombs? Normally I am not big on scented skin care...but these mani bombs are changing my opinions. Let me know in the comments if there is a smell out there that I must try.
