I had a lucky twenty minute break to enjoy an Open Sundae’s Bon Bon this weekend. The Bon Bons are shaped like a densely caloric sugar morsel and smells delightful.
This is the photo from the Open Sundae’s site. They look amazing, colorful and delicious in their native habitat (the official Open Sundae’s site). Regular readers of The Soap Queen will recall that I’m a fan of Open Sundaes (click here to see the visit to their online store).In real life, the Bon Bons um, are not quite as beautiful as the photo above. My inadequate camera and terrible lighting in the bathroom don’t help. While adorable in theory, the Bath Bon Bons don’t pop quite as brightly as photographed on the Open Sundae’s site.
The video below is an example of what the truffle does in the tub. Sadly, it’s a typical bath fizzy with very little residual moisture. Then again, the tub is large. The bath bon bon is small. Lesson learned? A higher oil-to-powder ratio is necessary to actually provide moisture.
The Bath Bon Bon still makes a unique and cute gift. I probably won’t buy one for myself again knowing what I know now (typical bath fizzy with very little moisturizing ability). Even with the small bathing disappointment, I have high hopes for their Soak’n’Melts and Cereal Bombs.
