Fizzy Fairy Apothecary is a subscription service that sends out a new set of limited edition bath bombs each month based on favorite fandoms. The owner runs an Etsy shop and wanted to try new themes, but didn’t have the storage space to keep them all. Instead, she decided to start the club and just make enough for subscribers. Ready to get your geek on? I tried out the August box. I’ll show you what you can expect from this awesome company if you decide to sign up.
These bath fizzies came in the box you see at the top of this article. It’s a plain white box with the company’s logo stamped on the front. Inside they were packed in tissue paper and individually wrapped, so everything got here whole.
At the top of the package, I found the card with this month’s theme and an extra goodie. The theme for August was Avatar: The Last Airbender. I’m not a huge fan, but I have watched it, so I was at least familiar with the show. The extra goodie was a button pin of character Zuko. I’ll be giving that to my one of the kids in my life.
On the back of the theme card is a list of all the different fizzies in the box and what they smell like. As you can see, each fizzy is based on a character with scents to represent them. This takes real imagination and is one of the reasons Fizzy Fairy Apothecary is so popular.
Under the card are the stars of the show. There are six fizzies included in the box and they are huge! Each one is 3 inches in diameter. Depending on the size of your tub, you may only need half. You can’t break them, but the owner suggests holding onto the ball and just submerging half until it dissolves, then saving the rest for next time. This is what I did for my small apartment tub and it worked just fine.
The fizzies have Avatar symbols on them and they all smell amazing. You can smell them a bit through the packaging, but they really shine when added to water. I tried out the Team Avatar fizzy which was a glitter bomb. The scent was florals, orange blossom, spearmint, musk, patchouli – plus a little friendship and adventure. Cute, right? It wasn’t overpowering with half the ball and it left a light scent and subtle glitter on my skin. The other balls don’t have glitter, which is just fine, because I tend to keep glitter confined to my makeup.
I’m leaving the other bombs to try at my leisure. I like to space them out a bit, like one per week. But based on the one I tried, I highly recommend this subscription service. The ball had a wonderfully luxurious, slightly oily feel. So relaxing!
The club costs $35 per month with free U.S. shipping or $100 for 3 months if you want to save a bit. Individually her Avatar bath bombs cost $7, so you’re saving some money either way. If you want the best in homemade bath fizzies, Fizzy Fairy Apothecary is top of the line. The fact that they cater to geeks is the icing on the cake. If you’re a nerd who loves soaking in the tub, I suggest you sign up.
