Bath bombs exploded across social media (no pun intended) over the last year – you literally couldn’t go a day without seeing something bath bomb-related on your timeline. Case in point: when even KFC decides to get on board and release its own limited edition, finger-lickin’ good-flavored bath bomb, you know it’s a trend that’s going to be around for a while.
From glitter-infused pastel spheres to jet black-as-your-soul skulls, bath time around the world sure looks a lot more fun (on Instagram anyway). Yet, as satisfying as it is to watch a bath bomb melt into swirls of colours, we can’t help but wonder what actually is going on in all that fizzing. Are bath bombs even any good for you? Is there more than just dye that’s going into the water? Should you be #bathbombing if you have sensitive skin? We dive a little deeper to find out.
