There was a contest to name the green glow in the dark polish in this picture in the Alter Ego fan group. It is named Alterween but we loved one of the runner up names so it became the name of the product of the month for October. Alter Ego Storming 51 is an activated charcoal bath bomb. These only come in small and mini bombs priced at $1.50 and $1 each.
Storming 51 is the first of Cynthia’s product of the month. They will be introduced to the Alter Ego lineup monthly but will be available as long as the ingredients are available. No caps or limited edition products for now. If you are not a member of the facebook group, join us! I am a mod there and we have lots of giveaways and they are open to Canadians too.
Alter Ego Storming 51 Charcoal Bath Bombs
These are not just any old charcoal bath bomb. Cynthia used coconut carbon, an ingredient in African Black Soap in her Storming 51 bath bombs. It also comes with her new formula using Unrefined Cocoa Butter, Unrefined Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Clay, Tapioca Flour, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and the Charcoal.
The small charcoal bath bombs ($1.50 for the charcoal bombs) are about 1.5 inches wide and weigh about .9oz. They are not super bubbly but have lots of moisturizing products along with the balancing charcoal. A small one will be fine in a normal tub.
The mini Storming 51 bath bombs are perfect for a mani bomb or pedi bomb. Priced at $1 each, they are about the size of a gumball. They weigh about 0.25oz and I tested these first, it took about 2 mins to completely dissolve in the water.
Storming 51 Mini Bath Cake
A gentle bubbling leaves a grey coloured water and white foam on top. I used the mini bomb as a pedi soak and it was the perfect amount for my 11qt tub. It didn’t seem to have any scent other than smelling a little more earthier than the usual “unscented” scent of lotions etc.
Both the bath and my legs needed rinsing after using the Storming 51 bath bombs. The charcoal stuck to the oils. But you want the charcoal to be actually touching your skin. Just rinse when you drain the water as it will stick to the oils and need scrubbing if you leave it.
Available soon direct from the Alter Ego shop online.
