If you have sensitive skin, then the thought of a bath bomb might make you cringe – instead of beautiful Instagram pictures, relaxation and calm bliss, instead they conjure up the images of dry, flaky skin, irritation and redness. Luckily, there are bath bombs that are made for sensitive skin that are life changing, especially if you’ve never dipped your toe into the world of bath time relaxation out of fear of ruining your skin. These are some of the best.
1. Nacomi Green Tea With Argan Oil Bath Bomb
If you like your baths to be both refreshing and relaxing, then this gorgeous green tea and argan oil bath bomb is perfect for you. The fresh scent of green tea will make you feel rejuvenated and energized whilst the Shea butter, argan oil and vitamin C and E extracts will soften and replenish your skin while you soak. This bath bomb is made from all natural ingredients so you can bathe happily without worrying about your skin sensitivity.
2. LUSH Ceridwen’s Cauldron Bath Melt
This bath melt is different to the fizzing, exciting bath bombs you see on Instagram, although this does not mean that it’s not just as good. Instead, this soft formula melts gently into the warm water, making it a lovely oatmilk bath – just like Cleopatra used to bathe in. The muslin pouch that it comes in can then be used as a soft washcloth so you can rub the gentle, moisturising formula into your skin to make sure you feel the full effects of this replenishing bath. This is perfect if you want to treat yourself and nourish your skin but don’t like the traditional fizzy bath bombs.
3. Little Ideas With Love Hot Milk Bath Bomb
Little Ideas With Love have a whole range of handmade bath bombs that are perfect for sensitive skin, so if you like supporting little businesses, you’ll love them. This particular bath bomb is made with coconut milk so whilst it has the fizziness of a traditional bath bomb, it has a far more gentle scent and formula so it will soothe your skin rather than irritating it. Whilst it may not be the prettiest of bath bombs, it is made with love and will treat your skin just as well as any Instagram-worthy bath bomb will.
4. Treets Bath Ball Happy Honey
Honey is known for its soothing and hydrating properties, which is why it’s perfect for sensitive skin. This cute golden bath bomb is a foaming bath bomb, which means it will gently bubble away and dissolve in your bath rather than exploding in a ball of fizz as other bath bombs may do, making it perfect for a long, relaxing soak. The honey gives the bath bomb a gentle scent, and whilst it will soften, hydrate and nourish your skin, honey also contains anti-inflammatory properties, meaning that your sensitive skin will be truly pampered.
5. LUSH Butterball Bath Bomb
If you want a more traditional bath bomb that you can get a great picture of without worrying that it will cause your skin to flare up, then LUSH’s Butterball is perfect for you. This soft white bath bomb smells of ylang ylang, which is proven to help anxiety, and also contains cocoa butter pieces within the bath bomb that melt into your bath and cover your skin, moisturising and replenishing it. This is a truly luxurious bath bomb, and perfect if you just want to go all out and treat yourself and your skin, especially if you’ve been having a stressful day.
