Product Review

For this product review I tried Miss Moonmaker Natural Bath Bombs. These fizzy bath goodies are a luxurious treat! Miss Moonmaker bath and body products are made of all-natural ingredients in Maine, USA. As well as bath fizzies, Miss Moonmaker also offers natural semi-solid scents, for dabbing on your neck or wrist.

A Natural Alternative to

Miss Moonmaker natural bath bombs are an all-natural alternative to bath bombs containing artificial colors and scents. Bath bombs first caught my eye at LUSH, but unfortunately, many of the LUSH bath bombs contain synthetic ingredients, including artificial colors.

Natural Bath Bomb Ingredients

Land of Milk and Honey

  • Baking soda, citric acid, sweet almond oil, powdered milk, powdered honey, magnesium sulfate, chamomile flowers, Vitamin E oil, vanilla extract.

Lemon Moonglow with body shimmer

  • Baking soda, citric acid, sweet almond oil, lemon & lemongrass essential oil, Vitamin E oil, cosmetic grade mica.

Lavender Dreamscape

  • Baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, sweet almond oil, organic lavender flowers, lavender essential oil, Vitamin E oil.

I ran the ingredients contained in these three scents of bath bombs through EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, and it returned a score of 1, low hazard. All the ingredients were in the 0-2, low hazard, range.

Packaging

The 3 oz natural bath bomb fizzies come wrapped individually in a small plastic bag with a twist tie.

Directions

Fill tub to desired temperature, drop bath bomb into water after immersed. Enjoy effervescence.

Observations

Land of Milk and Honey

I took an oh-so-relaxing warm bath with the Land of Milk and Honey scented bath bomb. Land of Milk and Honey contains powdered milk, honey, vanilla extract, and chamomile flowers. As soon as I dropped the bath bomb into the water it began fizzing and the bathroom filled with the aroma of chamomile tea.

Land of Milk and Honey Bath Bomb Fizzing

After soaking in the luxurious milk, honey, and chamomile bath for a short while I already noticed that it was making my skin soft and smooth. I could have relaxed there for an hour! Slowing down and taking the time to enjoy a bath with a Miss Moonmaker natural bath bomb made me realize I should do this once a week! It’s like having a soothing spa treatment at home.

Lemon Moonglow

Update 9/8/13: Next I tried Lemon Moonglow, which is scented with lemon and lemongrass and contains sparkling body shimmer. It smelled like lemon drop candies! The body shimmer created an iridescent shimmer across the surface of the water and stayed on my skin after the bath. The mica also had somewhat of an exfoliating property to it. Lemon Moonglow would be the perfect bath bomb to use before a night out, when you want to sparkle!

I also get to indulge in Lavender Dreamscape, which is scented with relaxing lavender essential oil and contains lavender flowers.

Rating

4 / 5 stars      

Miss Moonmaker natural bath bombs receive their first star for containing all-natural ingredients.

They miss out on one star for not coming in eco-friendly packaging. Instead of being wrapped in plastic, perhaps they could come in rice paper or recycled paper.

The bath fizzies receive a star for effectively creating a rejuvenating bathing experience.

Another star is awarded for being a good value for your money, priced at $4.49 for a 3 oz all-natural bath bomb.

A final star is awarded for being a pleasure to use. Miss Moonmaker bath bombs are a great way to pamper yourself or could be given as a thoughtful gift or party favor.

Overall, Miss Moonmaker all-natural bath bombs earn 4 out of 5 stars and I highly recommend them. It’s worth it to take the time to relax and enjoy their natural effervescence.

  1. hey there,
    i came across your website trying to do a search to see if vanilla extract would work in bath bombs…thanks for posting the ingredients, LOL.
    but to be fair i had to drop a comment that eco-packaging doesn’t always work for bath bombs because it has to be air tight and moisture-proof in order to not set off the fizz prematurely (like, in the packaging).
    If I wasn’t such a vegan I would totally use the land of milk and honey bath bomb…your description sold me on that one!!!
    cheers,
    stephanie

      Hi Stephanie,
      Good point about the bath bombs needing to be wrapped in moisture-proof packaging. That brings to mind some of these new materials that look and feel like clear plastic, but are actually plant-based and biodegrable. Have fun making bath bombs!
