Bath Time Treats For Body & Hair Featuring Bomb Cosmetics & Lee Stafford!

Every now and then one of those days happens to everyone when you just need a bit of a pick me up & my turn for one of those days was yesterday. You know the ones I mean, you feel a little bit down for no real reason and a bit rubbish about yourself & you need a bit of relaxation and pampering. I decided enough was enough & a hot bath was in order! I reached for two products, a bath bomb from Bomb Cosmetics courtesy of find me a gift & a tub of Lee Stafford’s treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length to give me that much needed pick me up.

I can’t fault Bomb Cosmetics on their packaging, especially for these bath bombs. It’s simple but really lovely & the cute ribbon tied around the box gives it that luxurious feel, like you’re in for a real treat when you try the products inside!
Following the directions on the back of the box I dropped the pink bath bomb with adorable little hearts on it which is called Sugar Kiss into warm water and watched as my bath instantly became bright pink & the entire room was filled with a beautiful floral scent. It was pretty much heaven! I’ve yet to use the other two bath blasters in the set which are called Natures Candy & Crazy After Dark but they smell incredible even just sitting in the box so I have really high hopes for them both!
I’ve never been a huge bath product kind of girl, in my previous house I used to only have a bath & I washed my hair every day so I never really had the chance to indulge in bubble bath or bath bombs. Now that I have a lovely shower & bath I have the opportunity to indulge whenever I like and I can see a bit of an addiction coming on. At least it’s a nice addiction! One that will keep my bathroom smelling nice all the time! I rinsed the bath out afterwards as the directions said and the product hadn’t stained my bath pink at all, which is good! The beautiful floral scent managed to linger in my bathroom for a whole day afterwards, which I thought was pretty amazing! Next on my list of Bomb Cosmetics products to try are these beauties that really do look good enough to eat!

My hair is in desperate need of attention. I’m not at all impressed with my natural colour now which seems to be dirty blonde with grey undertones. Dirty blonde I can handle but not grey undertones – I’m only 22. There’s plenty of time in the future for me to be grey! Thankfully I have discovered the John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray, which I will be stocking up on, and using forever and ever. So that’s the colour sorted out, I’d just like it to be healthier, more voluminous & most importantly, a little bit longer. I asked for help on twitter and many lovely ladies responded telling me I should give Lee Stafford’s treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length a try. That’s possibly one of the longest product names in history but I’m intrigued and extremely hopeful that it will work for me because of the sheer number of extremely positive reviews it’s got online!

I popped into Boots & indulged in the 3 for £12 offer and slathered this on my hair at the first opportunity I had. Before my super relaxing bath I shampooed my hair under the shower and scooped out slightly smaller than an egg sized amount of the treatment and massaged it all over my hair. The directions say to leave on for 5 minutes but I probably left it on for about 40 minutes before rinsing out. I didn’t condition my hair afterwards and probably never would purely because my hair is so fine & I think it would be a bit much. After I blow dried my hair it was gorgeously smooth and soft without looking weighed down which is extremely important in my opinion. I adore the scent of this which is good because it really lingers in my hair!
I’m excited to see if this does live up to my expectations. My hair isn’t in terrible condition so I’ll probably use this again on my next wash and then maybe twice or three times a week from then on. The tub is quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be and it’s fairly pricey at £7.99 but if it works then it’s worth it! I can’t lie that I love the bright pink packaging & although the alternating upper and lower case writing annoys me a bit, it’s eye catching!

After my little mini pamper session I felt much better & ready to take on the world once again. Everyone has down days but I think they’re the perfect excuse for some time to yourself to relax and recharge.

Have you tried either of these two products before? Do you love to indulge in a lovely bath every so often?


  1. I love the Lee Stafford treatment and saw real results from it within a month. It definitely strengthens your hair as well and it smells gorgeous!


  2. those bath bombs look amazing! and i really want to try that hair growth stuff too; my hair stays at the same length for ages:( xo

  3. What lovely packaging, the tiny rose on the bathbomb is so cute too! Can't beat reading a good book in a bubble bath.

  4. I recently discovered Bomb Cosmetics as a gift from a friend, and completely agree with this review! They are faultless and smell amazing! I would put them on par with Lush anyday!

    :) xxx

  5. I just love Bomb cosmetics too!!! The smell from all there products is always amazing and all there stuff always looks sooo adorable! Definately good enough to eat!!! (although i wouldn't recommend doing that!) :-)

  6. I got some of this in the Boots deal as well as two other products, can't wait to give mine a go :) everyone I've spoken to who has used it has really liked it.

  7. I've never tried Lee stafford hair products before but I always pick it up and look at it when I'm in boots! Sounds good though, I'd love to hear your thoughts after you've used it a few times.
    I just got a leave in conditioner which I'm about to post about now! :)


  8. I had a gorgeous one the other week using a bath bomb from lush, although I think I made the bath a bit too hot...

  9. I bought the lee stafford product as well, it smells lovely. I think if it does what it says I will be repurchasing it.

  10. Those bath bombs look lovely ,I hardly ever have a bath but I really fancy one now with some LUSH goodies I have! I've never tried that hair treatment but would love a follow-up review in a few weeks/months to see the results xx

  11. i'm going to have to try the bath blasters - they sound great!

  12. oh I love bath bombs!! and does it really make your hair grow? I once took prenatal vitamins for my hair...didn't do squat!


  13. I'm just starting to use to Lee Stafford one, so I'll be interested to see how it goes on your hair compared to mine and see if it makes a difference to either of us! Fingers crossed it does, I NEED my hair to get back to the length and thickness it was before I played with hair dye and it all started falling out!

  14. Ever since we moved some ten years ago, I haven't been allowed to take baths because out tub is so much bigger and it'll cost so so much ;) Of course, I sneak in a little bathing session now and again.

    I love Lee Stafford products. As you say, they smell lovely and in 98% of the time they actually work!

  15. Ooo I've been looking at this hair product, the size of the pot compared to the price puts me off trying it but I think I'm just going to have to bite the bullet!

  16. I try to take a really relaxing hot bath 2-3 times a week, which sounds insane, I think, but it's my 'me' time. I catch up on bad television on my laptop, and my dog curls up next to the tub and it's just really lovely.

  17. I love bath bombs, they look amazing!

  18. I have been wondering about trying the Lee Stafford product, but yes, the price is quite off putting, especially as my hair is fairly long and you have to use a fair amount. I would love to know how you get on :)
