You guys already know that I adore Forever Polished and her mani bombs- we recently created the Forever A Mermaid box together and now she’s released her next themed box for Mother’s Day! Unfortunately the post office was a little too slow and this arrived to me after her restock but I still wanted to give it a review in case she brings it back sometime in the future. She also sent me some extra new bombs she’d had/has in her shop so I’ll be showing those as well!
If you haven’t checked out the last posts, you may be wondering what a mani bomb is. Similar to a bath bomb, they contain various ingredients like salts, oils and butters and come in a variety of scents and shapes. You fill a bowl with warm water, drop a bomb in and let it fizz! After soaking your hands for about 10-15 minutes, you towel dry and enjoy nicely moisturized hands!
Mani Bombs in the Mother’s Day Box
Relax, Refresh, Renew
Scent- A comforting blend of lavender and musk.
I love the label on this one!
A Mother’s Love
Scent- A slightly sweet and innocent scent that includes a blend of peonies, hyacinth, day lilies, apple blossoms, soft bergamot, dark cherry and ripe strawberry blended with tangerine, orange and mango.
This shape is so adorable!
Happy For Mothers
Scent- Blend of citrus rose and lilac with rich musk.
This bomb reallllly looks good enough to eat. Damn you, Forever Polished. Making me hungry all the time.
Scent:Notes of dark sweet cherry, violet, sweet coumarin, pink raspberry, light brown sugar, cotton candy, sensual musk, and a hint of French crème and tonka bean.
The name of this one made me laugh because my mom used to have ‘Supermom’ as her license plate and my dad refused to drive her van because of it. On the rare cases he did have to take it somewhere we always laughed at him, ha!
These next products are not part of the Mother’s Day Box:
Scent- Sweet pea petals and watery pear entwine with sheer freesia, fresh berry, and soft, delicate musk.
This one broke a bit in shipping but of course they work just fine, anyways! I love how strong the berry scent is on this one.
Scent- Bursting juices of mandarin orange come to life with zesty orange peels. Blooming petals of orange flower fragrantly embrace this beautiful scent.
The orange scent is definitely strong in this bomb (in a good way)!
This one (+ a couple others) aren’t up on the site right now so I couldn’t get the scent information but I’ve tried a nars bomb before and it’s seriously my favorite scent of anything she makes!
Lemon Drop With Honey
This smells so refreshing and they are way too cute!
Frankincense & Myrrh
Scent- Traditional riches of blended frankincense with myrrh.
This scent I’m not a huge fan of but I think I will try it out on my boyfriend! He usually likes the ones that I don’t.
Blooming Tulips Tiny Truffles
This is a fairly new product, I believe! Not a mani bomb, these truffles are meant to be crumbled under running water or underwater when the mani bomb is fizzing. These are more of a melt than a bomb (and can be used either with a mani bomb or in the bath). I can’t wait to try these, I’ve heard awesome things about them from the girls in the fan group!
Overall, I think this was a great box for Mother’s Day and is a nice way to pamper your mom and not break the bank. Ashley nailed the cute packaging for it, too! Again, this was sold at the last restock in the Forever Polished shop but keep an eye out on her social media or fan group for future restock info.
What do you think of this box? Have you tried Forever Polished Mani Bombs before? Let me know in the comments!
