What I thought:

The box arrived beautifully packaged with the Tub logo and bubbles printed on the front and sides. Inside the box I found a contents card and a small business card with the Tub box social media details and a photo of a melting bath bomb. All the products were individually wrapped which I really liked as I felt like Christmas had come early as I ripped into each one!

Bursting Bubblegum

This bomb smells incredible and I could smell it before I even opened the box! A strong sugary scent which really smells like sweets – sherbet and parma violets in particular! As soon as this bomb hit the water it started to fizz and disperse turning the bath water a shocking pink and blue then finally purple as the colours mixed together. A very pleasant and relaxing bath was had that evening!

Essential Eucalyptus

Help melt your stresses away by soaking in a steaming tub filled with this eucalyptus bath bomb. Releasing a pleasant scent that will help you relax and take your troubles away. Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory properties which is said to help ease muscle and joint pain. Good to use when you might be feeling a little under the weather. This bomb is very calming and soothing, and my body felt instantly tranquil.

Summer Sangria

This multicoloured horn shaped bomb brings summer right to your door and what smells more like summer than cocktails! With a fresh and fruity fragrance which fills up the whole room, you can almost imagine yourself on holiday! When dropped into the water it began fizzing immediately with an explosion of colour for a magical bathing experience.

Essential Grapefruit

Add some excitement into your bath with this bath bomb. Drop into warm water and watch it fizz, letting out a fruity but revitalising grapefruit scented zing. It will turn the bath water a delicate pinky orange. Very uplifting and moisturising as my body felt silky smooth after soaking in the tub. Perfect for unwinding after a long week or for a mid-week recharge.

Lemongrass Bath Oil

This lemongrass bath oil has a strong and fresh lemon smell with earthy undertones which is wonderfully long lasting. I love the smell of the lemongrass, it makes my bathroom feel like I’m at a spa! Add a few drops to your tub for a stimulating and balancing bathing experience.

Lemon & Lime Soap Bar

Brilliantly green in colour with a refreshing zesty smell. l love the idea of a ‘naked’ cleanser as it is so much better for the environment. The bar gives a rich, creamy lather using very little water and a little really goes a long way. It left my skin soft to the touch and smells amazing, the scent lingered on my body well afterwards too. I felt thoroughly refreshed, invigorated, awake and alert, ready to tackle the day ahead.

Peppermint Shampoo Bar

I love shampoo bars and was really happy to see one in this box. This wonderful pepperminty smelling solid shampoo bar was an absolute delight to use. Peppermint is said to boost blood flow and stimulating the hair follicles. It lathered up really well and my hair felt really soft and smelt amazing after using. Buying shampoo bars instead of bottled shampoo is also a quick and simple way to reduce your use of plastics and help reduce plastic pollution.

Dewberry Fizzing Bath Salts

If you are looking for relaxing treat, then look no further! Bath salts are a simple indulgence that contain minerals that are beneficial to the skin and they also make a perfect foot soak for tired and aching feet. With a delicious burst of sweet dewberry these salts are sure to tingle the senses.

Verdict:

I love that this box is environmentally friendly as all the packaging is 100% recyclable and contains very little plastic! I believe we should all do what we can to protect our planet and I’m happy to see Tub box doing their part. All the products are lovingly handmade and are vegan, cruelty free and kind to the skin! This is my first review for a bath bomb subscription and it has been an absolutely pleasure receiving this box. It’s given me the perfect excuse to indulge in some much needed me time. You receive a box packed with 8 goodies – which is more than what other bath subscription boxes offer. This box is certainly good value for money as it works out to only £3.75 per item – that’s an amazing bargain and works out cheaper if you subscribe for longer periods too. A bath can be romantic or relaxing but with this subscription why not make bath time luxurious? Subscribe now and don’t forget to use the discount code!
