I’m a big fan of Lush bath bombs, aka “the fragrant, fizzy, colorful and ridiculously expensive bath bombs that everybody loves.” There’s not much that’s more luxurious than relaxing in a nice hot bath with some essential oils and a fizzy bath bomb.
But the average price of just one Lush bath bomb is around $8, which makes for a pretty expensive bath. On a special occasion, like my birthday, I do enjoy going into the Lush store and choosing out a scented bath bomb. But what about the rest of the year? I’m definitely not about to spend $8 every time I want to take a relaxing bath with a little fizz.
So, like when I wanted a cheaper alternative to LuLaRoe leggings, I decided to go out and see if I could find a cheaper alternative to Lush bath bombs.
There are plenty of bath bombs on the market, so finding a bath bomb (any bath bomb) wasn’t the problem. But I didn’t want just any bath bomb.
There are a few reasons why Lush bath bombs are so popular:
- The Size – Lush bath bombs are the size of a tennis ball. I wanted something similar in size, not golf ball sized like most other bath bombs seem to be.
- The Scents – The scent of Lush bath bombs are amazing. Naturally, I wanted something that smelled just as good.
- The Colors – Have you ever seen a brightly colored Lush bath bomb when it first starts fizzing? Really pretty!
- The Fizz – This should be standard with all bath bombs. But strangely enough, I’ve tried many bath bombs that just plop to the bottom of the bath and dissolve. Disappointing.
And after a bit of trial and error, I actually found a few cheaper alternatives to Lush bath bombs!
Cheaper Alternatives to Lush Bath Bombs
These bath bombs by Pure Sanctum are beautifully packaged. At $30 for a pack of 6, they’re slightly more expensive, but they’re still substantially cheaper than Lush bath bombs.
For gifting purposes, the packaging of these wins me over.
Unlike Lush, they don’t have the bright colors (these are pure white) but they’re made with all-natural, organic ingredients, have a luxurious scent, and will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized.
And they’re huge!
Next are these brightly colored JooJoo Bath bombs. I love these because they’re extra large, fizz for a long time, smell divine, and have the same bright colors that make Lush Bath Bombs so popular. In fact, these JooJoo bath bombs are probably my favorite. You can buy JooJoo bath bombs here.
Finally, I found these Oliver Rocket bath bombs. Now, I will say that these don’t have the same fizz effect that Lush bath bombs do, so if that’s what your’e looking for then you’ll prefer the JooJoo bath bombs.
But I had to include the Oliver Rocket bath bombs because they smell absolutely amazing, they make my skin feel soft and moisturized, and the scents actually permeate your skin (so you can walk around smelling like Moonlight Roses :D)
So tell me, are you a bath bomb addict too? What’s your favorite brand?
