bath bomb testers are checking in

The first testers have started to check in and are very impressed. The first one emailed me and asked how much they were and could she get more, she said she loved it and her sister wants some too.

Another tester also loved her black raspberry vanilla bomb and was ready to buy. I told them I am still working on them some more including a test of shipping them across a few states to see how my packing holds up, all the little things before I am ready to add them officially to my line.

Part of research when making new products is to see what others do when they make the same product so
I did place an order with the main bath bomb maker online who sells to the public and does wholesale to a large number of other crafters. The package arrived a few days ago. After all the rave reviews I was a tad dissappointed in what I got. I picked out 4 different scent I knew I would like. I opened the package and the little carton they were placed in inside the box had broke into pieces luckly only one bomb showed some damage. They did toss in a few samples of other creams they made and those were nice. The bombs were on the smaller side but the way they were made didn't seem that good, most of them didn't really line up most where off center and you could see lines in the middle. The scents were strong and nice but when I dropped the first bomb in the water it barely fizzed and my skin wasn't all that super soft after I was done with my bath. So in all I was dissappointed with the order I got, I did give some of the other bombs to the other testers so they can tell me what they think after trying my bomb and someone elses.

After all this testing I do feel I make a good quality product that shouldn't dissappoint anyone.

Tonight I am testing out a marshmellow bomb, I love marshmellow scents so I made a batch I knew I would love to try out.

I would have been a hot tamale if that were me! I can't wait til yours come out. I love my Black Raspberry Vanilla candle so I know the bath bomb is going to be just as lovely.I'm not a "bather" but I have another use in mind for them. It should make one interesting blog post! I'll keep checking in!
