Mani bombs seem to be a huge thing at the moment, so naturally I wanted to try to see what they are about. I heard through Facebook that there was a new Australian brand coming and that their products were amazing. I followed on Instagram and liked their Facebook page and patiently waited for LaBomb Mani Bombs to open their doors (so to speak - they are an online store so technically there is no doors but you know what I mean). Luck was on my side, and Kura (the owner and creator) was calling out for bloggers to review her products. And here we are.
I was sent six of the bombs (see pics below for names) to try and all I can say I am in love. I really like all of the scents I received, although they are quite overwhelming sitting together. Now I should point out that I am not too fussy with scents and I also haven't actually tried any mani bombs or bath bombs before so I am not sure how these compare.

Now I also did receive Ahola which I used before I took my pictures. I blame the excitement!
Each mani bomb comes in a small zip lock bag with a label that has all the ingredients listed for each of the bombs. All six of the bombs I received were sent wrapped in bubble wrap to minimize any damage. Mine did have very minimal crumbling but I just tipped those bits straight into the water.
How to use:
These bombs can be used on both hands and feet (and also in baths if you like) and are really simple to use. Simply put warm water into a (preferably glass) bowl big enough to submerge your hands/feet, add the bomb and watch it (and hear it) fizz into liquid goodness. Soak hands/feet for about 5-10 minutes, and then pat dry with a paper towel. Allow the oils to absorb into the skin for half an hour and then rinse off.

I decided to test two of the bombs - Choc'bread Men on my hands and Aloha on my feet. Both dissolved in the water within a minute, and both gave off great fragrance that wasn't too over powering. After patting dry my hands and feet I didn't notice that they looked oily but they did look well moisturized and felt soft and smooth (and they still look and feel good a day later too).
Like I mentioned earlier, I am in love with these bombs and definitely will be buying more in the future. My favorite scents of the ones I received are Nectarine & Honey and Choc'bread Men.
These are available now from LaBomb Mani Bombs and range from $1.80 to $2.20 each. There is a huge variety of scents and shapes but they appear to be selling out rather quickly, so grab some while you can.
