Obsession of the Moment: Hallu Bath Bombs

Aren’t children supposed to love baths? Isn’t bath time supposed to be fun??

They are, and it is. So why do my children avoid baths as if they are filled not with warm, wonderful water and an assortment of age-appropriate toys, but rather scalding-hot oil and/or velociraptors? Especially my daughter; girlfriend has to be a scrub before I deem it worth my time to spend half an hour “convincing” her (“manually wrestling her into the tub”) that baths are, in fact, a prerequisite for even semi-normal human interaction.

I have found the solution to this quandary, and it is – perhaps unsurprisingly – a rainbow mermaid bath bomb.

This post isn’t sponsored, but it’s going to sound like it is because I’m so obsessed with Hallu bath bombs. There are four main…varieties? …Flavors? How do you categorize bath bombs, exactly? Let’s call it “ColorScents,” because that makes as much sense as anything else. The four ColorScents seem to technically be marketed towards…teenagers, I guess? But come on:

fairy gnome unicorn mermaid bath bombs

They are called “Fairy,” “Mermaid,” “Gnome,” and “Unicorn.” You know you want them as much as your kids do.

And when you put them in the water they explode into a sort of swirly, sparkly rainbow, and end up turning your bathwater crazy, saturated colors (except the gnome one, which turns it brown, and I know this sounds gross but it’s actually really cool). And these aren’t the only the only fabulous things this company makes; they also make RAINBOW UNICORN HORN BATH BOMBS THAT FLOAT, SPIN AND BUBBLE (and other stuff, but obviously that deserves a special call-out).

Obsessed.

Foaming Dry Scrub

“Shake a handful of the scrub into your palm and rub against wet skin. Watch it foam and bubble as the Pumice, Coffee Oil and Walnut Shell remove dull skin to reveal a new layer of you.”

FUN.

2/4

Unicorn Horn Bath Bomb

I can’t.

3/4

Fairy Pink Foam Lotion

This mousse-like formula is full of tiny gold mica flecks, and I want to submerge myself in a vat of it.

4/4

Unicorn Rainbow Sugar Scrub

I cannot own this, because my daughter would eat it immediately. I totally get this reaction, but still.

    Do these leave a stain on your tub, or any lingering colors? I’d love to try them but don’t want to create even more work by having to clean it up too!

      a little bit. not staining, but there’s definitely a little color residue that has to be rinsed off afterwards – I don’t know if it would stain if you didn’t rinse it. it doesn’t really bug me because my kids love it soooo much, but I can see it being annoying if you don’t typically rinse out your tub after baths (which I do regardless).
