The only thing more shocking in 2016 than the fact that a former reality star is our president is the fact that an 11-year-old fictional wizard is the biggest beauty influencer of the year. First there were Harry Potter brushes, then a Harry Potter eyeshadow palette and now, a Harry Potter bath bomb: The Sorting Hat Bath Bomb, to be exact.
At first glance, it looks like a pretty normal ( kind of boring) bath bomb. It’s just a white ball with a green, red, blue, and yellow stripe on the top of it. But there’s a really cool twist: When you drop it into the bath, you have no idea what color it will turn the water.
… As if watching bath bombs explode wasn’t already exciting and magical enough.
The color fizz the bomb explodes into corresponds with a Hogwarts House — Yellow for Gryffindor, Green for Slytherin, Blue for Hufflepuff and Red for Ravenclaw — effectively “sorting” you into one of the houses during bath time. Equal parts stressful and amazing, no? Especially if you’re worried about becoming a Slytherin. Yikes.
As any die-hard Potterhead knows, the scene with the sorting hat is arguably the most important in the Harry Potter series because it sealed Harry’s fate as a Griffyndor and his future as a wizard. The sorting hat bath bomb pretty much does the same thing.
It’s unclear where, exactly, you can buy the bombs, but hopefully CreatedByRebeccaLynn.com will be up and running soon.
