Bath Vibes bath bomb review

I just bought the deluxe sampler pack from Bath Vibes, a small company located at the Jersey Shore.

I found them on Instagram and decided to try all of the bath bombs and review them below.

Shipping was super fast for me because I live in NJ and when I opened the box I was greeted with all the lovely smells! The bath bombs were all packed nicely and all arrived undamaged

Included in the box was:

Lavender Fields-this one is very relaxing with lavender actually floating in the bath! Perfect for winding down from a long day. 4/5

Lemon Drop- a beautiful blend of citrus scents, turning the bath a pastel yellow! This is a very universal bomb that would be great to use anytime! 4/5

Margarita- smells just like the drink! This one was my favorite, it was moisturizing with a great blend of scents. The water turned a fun lemon lime color!! 5/5

Mariposa- I loved this bathbomb! It has dried flowers in it and a heavenly scent! The lavender and honeysuckle fragrance is long lasting and relaxing, and this bomb has many oils that moisturized my skin. 5/5

Rosemary Spearmint- This one did not have a very strong scent in the bath and did not change the water very much although it was still nice. I recommend this for people who want something subtle to relax them before bed. Good for men and women as the scent is gender neutral and has a subtle fragrance. 3/5

Tea Tree- this one had a strong tea tree scent which I loved! It turned my tub into a pastel green spa sensation. The oils left my skin moisturized and my mind refreshed. I totally recommend it after a long day or if you have a cold! 5/5

Galaxy Moon Stone- I enjoyed this one because it was very floral, including jasmine, ylang ylang, lavender and lemon, which all blended nicely. It turned the water a lovely cerulean color. It was pretty moisturizing and my only complaint is that the scent lasted longer! 4/5

Love Struck Heart Shaped- this one was a darling heart shaped bomb that was fun to watch slowly shrink in the bath! It gave off scents of lemon, rose (my fave), lavender and cedar wood which led to a relaxing and intricate blend of smells. It turned the water a peachy pastel pink and the scent lasted a while! 4/5

These are 4.5 oz bombs that come individually wrapped with tags with names, making it easier for me to know which one is which.

Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is of course used in cooking, but here are ways that I’ve been using it in my beauty routine!

hair mask I use this about once a week to once a month depending on my hairs needs. Rub into hair and scalp and let it soak into hair for a few hours to overnight. I then shampoo and dry! This really restores moisture and nourishes the hair.

lotion I rub this all over my body as a fast absorbing lotion, and a little goes a long way! Coconut oil melts at body temperature so putting some on your hand will melt it rapidly!

shaving cream I use this on my legs in the bath to shave and it makes it so easy to shave. The oil kills bacteria on the skin, moisturizes, and provides lubrication for the razor!

bath oil Put some in the bath to leave skin smooth and hydrated!

cuticle oil Rub into cuticles to soften them.

makeup remove Apply a moderate amount to face, let sit for a minute and wipe off with cotton pad. Be careful around the eyes though! The oil works to break up the makeup and stick to the oil instead of your face!

Where to buy?: I try different brands on Amazon, just make sure it is extra virgin coconut oil!

I hope you try out some of these tricks!

Review for Moroccan Selection On Etsy

http://www.etsy.com/shop/MoroccanSelection

I recently wanted to try some new health products that were natural so I first came across Coconut Oil & African black soap- For the coconut oil I began using it all over my body after a nice shower, it moisturizes and makes my skin so soft!  The African Black Soap did wonders for my complexion as it is a great gentle exfoliator making my face clean and clear without harmful chemicals. I then heard about this company and argan oil from a friend.  They had a sale for Mother’s Day so I took advantage and purchased the Moroccan Argan Oil Cleansing Bar and the Organic Argan Oil.  I received them three days later and in perfect condition.  Argan Oil is from a tree and has many uses for the body, hair, skin, and nails.  I love using products that have been around for ages because these are typically inexpensive, all natural, and hey, if cultures have been using them for centuries, it is for a reason!  On the hair it makes it so smooth and soft, it is truly unbelievable.  I also use the Organic Argan Oil on my face at night.  I have been talking to some older friends that have been using this stuff and they said their wrinkles around mouth and eyes have greatly diminished.  I have also been noticing by using the body bar a great reduction in the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.

From the Website:

100% pure, cold-pressed Argan Oil
A rich, protective, and nourishing organic skin care that reduces the signs of aging, diminishes dehydration, and improves the vibrant, healthy look of your hair. Ideal for all skin types.
More resistant to oxidation than olive oil.

2oz/ 60ml

What is the composition of Argan Oil?

Argan Oil contains an impressive amount of nourishing and replenishing natural vitamins, anti-inflammatory agents, polyunsaturated fats, and high levels of vitamin E. Here is a quick list of Argan’s oil’s dominant characteristics:
• Vitamin F (omega 6): anti-aging and anti-dryness of skin
• Vitamin E : 2 times the amount in olive oil! A powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory for sensitive skin, UV protection, and aids in coetaneous micro-circulation. Also neutralises free radicals.
• Vitamin A : Increases skin elasticity, stimulates collagen synthesis, prevents wrinkles due to UV.
• Phenols : antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, powerful against fungus and bacteria, activates blood circulation and activates Vitamin C.
• Triterpens restructure cells, is anti-inflammatory and slows down cell aging.

Cleansing Bar

100% natural moisturising argan oil soap, wrapped for freshness – proven to moisturise and keep skin soft.

To name but a few of its benefits:
-It acts as an antioxidant.
-It can help protect muscles from age related degeneration.
-It softens dry skin, rehydrates and revitalises tired and wrinkled skin to help give skin a youthful glow.
-It can aid relief for burns and scars.
-It strengthens nails and stops both fingernails and toenails from becoming dry.
-It can help reduce psoriasis and the look of stretch-marks.
Soap Dimensions: 1 x 3 x 4 inches

My first opinion on size and pricing.  When I first received the products I thought the cleansing bar was a good price for the amount of soap, but I thought the Argan Oil was overpriced for such a small container, HOWEVER, a little does go a long way with this so it has changed my opinion.

I also thought it was interesting that they also sold Kohl eyeliner as well as jewelry and Ghasoul clay powder which I also heard is really great for the skin.

I would like to try the Clay powder products next!
