Imagine this: Your boyfriend ushers you to the bathroom, where candles illuminate a steaming tub just waiting for you to slip into it. You do—but not before your he drops a bath bomb into the water, where it fizzes and spins until nothing but a small circular container remains. Curious. Your guy prompts you to inspect the item—and when you do, you find it opens to reveal a sparkling surprise inside.
That’s the idea behind Pearl Bath Bombs. Founder Tessa Medlock’s now-fiancé popped the question with an engagement ring hidden inside a DIY bath bomb, and she built a business based on her engagement story. “Everyone had to have one just like it,” according to Pearl Bath Bombs’ website. She launched her product via Facebook, in a video that quickly went viral and has more than 14 million views.
Her formula is an all-natural mix of citric acid, Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch, almond oil, and witch hazel, in a variety of scents and colors. Plus, each “egg” inside the bath bombs contain your choice of a sterling silver, rose gold, or gold-plated ring. The rings price at $15 to $70 a pop—click here to shop them and while these aren’t rings you’ll want to wear forever,they’ll make for a good backup until you get the real one.
