Target Bath Bomb Advent Calendar Review – Holiday 2019


Some of the windows on this advent calendar opened perfectly, and others didn’t want to open, or opened with no bath bomb behind them because they had slipped into a different position. Good to know, if you are only opening this day by day.


These baby bath bombs are truly mini- I could probably fit five of them in the palm of my hand if I tried. While these have a color to them, no single bomb really had the power to change the color of my bath water or strongly scent the water. I’m not even actually sure what the scents on these were, but the experience wasn’t unpleasant. Some of these bombs did have shimmer to add to the mix, but overall I would call these pretty tame.

Here I am holding three getting ready to take a bath. I probably could have color-coordinated these better, but I digress.

And here they are in action! While they do add a short burst of color, there simply isn’t enough to change the color of an entire bath. The dark green bomb was a bit messy, but I was able to wash all of the color residues away.

Verdict: To be frank, none of these bath bombs impressed me in terms of scent or performance. I love the idea of having a different bath bomb for every day leading up to Christmas, but a gumball-sized bath bomb that lacks in fragrance doesn’t really scream “treat yourself.” I think this would be a good option for children who want to have some fun with bath time, but if you’re an adult I say splurge on something a little nicer than this.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. Since you have them, Jessica, one or two would probably make a nice foot soak. 🙂

  2. Last year, I bought a gift set like this at Target that had a Christmas charm in each bath bomb. I thought it was Target brand, but I don’t remember exactly.

  3. Not surprising they are subpar. Made in China. Probably filled with stuff that no one wants on themselves.

    • love having to see racist comments like this on my own birthday but okay if you say so

      • It isn’t racist at all. Google recalls and testing on China made toys, bath products, leather, the list is long. Also Google baby formula and dog food. China has a much longer list of issues with their products due to lower standards of production. it is a government and big business issue not a human issue. Education before trolling is always a great thing. Either way happy birthday hope you have a lovely one.

      • Good grief.

  4. Thank You Jessica for a very honest review. Not only are these gumball size without any nice fragrance, but there’s not a single ingredient that’s good for the skin, like almond oil or any essential oils, etc.
    While this is a cute idea and calendar, it needs to be improved by 100% including the poor package design. I hope they do a better job next year if they have these again 😉

    • I try to steer clear of anything made in China. It’s nearly impossible. The cruelty animals suffer over there is deplorable. Especially dogs in the Yulin festival. I know there’s plenty of animal abuse around the world including here in America but the dog meat festival makes me sick!
