Beauty Laundrette’s Eau Yes Body Mist

I love fragrance. It creates a mood for me and a state of mind, even if it’s for a short amount of time. I COULD spend crazy amounts of money on these products but I don’t. It’s called Adult & Parenthood e.g I can’t afford it! Not regularly anyway. So more affordable alternatives such as perfume or body mists are a must! So I was very interested to see the brand Beauty Laundrette in Superdrug. A totally new line to me, which includes a variety of fragrance and body products all priced in a budget friendly way. So I bought a few pieces, including Eau Yes Body Mist. Normally priced at £5.50, I got it when it was on a half price promotion.

Beauty Laundrette’s Eu Yes Body Mist

Why did I buy this?

A new range (at least to me) always perks my interest! The packaging on the website looked super cute, I am a massive fan of body mists and this was priced so well. Plus I have a daughter who know leaves the house smelling like a perfume counter. Which I wouldn’t appreciate if she was bathing in a £50 bottle of an eau de parfum! But a body mist? Not bothered!

Packaging.

Very unusual this one! The whole range looks youthful, fun, feminine and has their own take on laundry products packaging. Slightly curved around the edge with a trigger top to release products. But the trigger isn’t push down as traditional fragrances are, you squeeze it. Soft pink in colour, so no mistaking this for a household item. Lettering in a metallic copper colour. Different, simple but very eye catching.

Fragrance.

This is a very fresh and delicate scented body mist and NOT my usual type of scent I would go for. It’s floral based, but more white flowers so it has a more fresh and clean feel to it rather than it being heavy, sweet and dare I say old. It’s pretty, it’s airy and it immediately make me think of Spring and Summer time. If I’m honest, the first time I used this I wasn’t too keen. I didn’t love it, in fact I didn’t even like it. But it grew on me. And the more I used it the more I DID like it! Totally different to anything else I have in my fragrance wardrobe.

How I use this.

It’s not something I thought about until recently, but who actually uses body mists on their body? I mean, direct contact onto the skin? I never have. But when you read the packaging (I never do, not for a fragrance!) it does say apply on the body (well this one does). I apply this onto my clothes. The idea of putting it onto my skin is a no. I wouldn’t as I don’t want my skin to be irritated (psoriasis sufferer). I don’t know whether these types of formulations would dry my skin out (contains alcohol). But if I want my skin to be fragranced I would just use a fragranced body lotion.

Strength and longevity.

Strength is very VERY light. I found I needed to apply quite a few bursts of this to get close to the strength I wanted. The type of fragrance it is I think it suits being soft rather than full on, but personally I think it should be just a touch stronger. Longevity can only go so far if it’s already a soft fragrance. This is one of those body mists reapplying often is more likely than not.

Would I buy this again?

For myself probably not. And only because of the strength. The scent, although not my usual type is actually quite nice and it won me over, but I like my scents to be a little more punchier on the power front

I actually would, for a particular group of people….

*People that don’t like strong scents and want something that’s almost invisible.

*Someone may work in certain industries where strong scents would be a no no e.g working with food, hospitals, care homes etc.

*This maybe purchased for a child or teen, who you want to have a nice fragrance, but not one that is overpowering (well the parent doesn’t!).

So, if you like your fresh florals and scent to be light, this would tick the boxes. It does have a nice scent, an unusual and cute packaging (some people will love it some won’t) and when on offer is good value. At the time of writing this post, this body mist is on offer with a third off so grab yours here now if this ticks your fragrance boxes.

Bomb Cosmetics Ring of Roses Soap

The bar of soap. An item that has been bought and used millions of times over the years, but possibly appreciated that little bit more since March 2020. In all honesty, it never has been my favourite product to clean my body with. But with there being so many fragrances, shapes and designs, the bath and body product addict in me is attracted to the occasional bar or two. I was lucky enough to receive as a gift (birthday or Christmas I genuinely can’t remember!) late 2020 a gorgeous Bomb Cosmetics gift set from a friend. Ring of Roses Soap was included in this.

Bomb Cosmetics Ring of Roses Soap

Why did I use this?

I seem to go through so many shower gels. The reason is, I use them for both shower and bath, so they don’t last that long. Having an actual soap is great to use when I’m showering in the morning and time starved because it’s practical and quick. This soap bar looked quirky, and I fancied a change from my current shower & bath product.

The look.

This soap is a vibrant, eye popping shade of purply pink, with black and white swirls running through it (reminds me of liquorice). Very funky and slightly psychedelic! This is also a decent really size. It covers pretty much the palm of my hand. Not too thick, roughly an inch in depth. And not totally square in shape either, giving it a more handmade look and feel. Smooth on all sides and opaque.

Fragrance.

I expected this to smell roses, and if I’m honest I’m not a fan of rose. It can be very old fashioned in scent to me, if it’s not the right type of rose. So not sure if this is good or bad, but it didn’t smell of roses. There did seem a touch of floral in there somewhere but very faint. And some other form of essential oil that I can’t put my finger on. But overall the scent wasn’t specific enough so might appeal to many e.g not particularly feminine. So a subtle (as it wasn’t strong) fragrance which was nice enough, but not what I expected. Didn’t match how the soap looked and didn’t wow me.

In the shower.

This lathered up well. Didn’t take much effort using a sponge and water from the shower. The foam was white, quite creamy but not particularly light, fluffy and bubbly. What it did though is clean the skin on my body very well. Easy to rinse off, no strange or sticky residue. I could smell the fragrance while using the soap, but again, it wasn’t strong but still pleasant.

After washing with this, I didn’t feel squeaky clean, just clean. This was perfect and what I wanted! No irritations, no dryness, just clean skin.

Recommended?

I think this is a practical but fun bar of soap. I can see this being a winner for younger people especially, so pre teens and teenagers. It does what it’s supposed to do, looks good and easy and quick to use. Would I buy this myself? No, for a few reasons. Although it looks good it doesn’t quite appeal to me. And the fragrance could have been better. I like using products in the shower that smell nice and although this wasn’t bad, I would have liked something more punchier and have a different scent to it. Remember, this would last awhile considering it’s a soap, so realistically you need to like it a lot before you get too bored of it!

Is this soap bar more in taste with your daily shower or bathing routine? You can grab this for £3.25 here direct from Bomb Cosmetics.

Fragrantasia’s Sweet Heart Wax Chunk Pot

If you are someone who likes using home fragrance products, are their certain fragrance families that you really like? It’s rare that if you burn a candle, or use a reed diffuser, that you aren’t bothered about what type of scent it’s giving off. We all have our own tastes because fragrance is a personal thing. There are a few I’m not too keen on, but thankfully many more I like. And I think this is why Amy at Fragrantasia, sent me the selection of wax melts and wax pots that she did. Included in this box of goodies was Sweet Heart Wax Chunks Pot.

Fragrantasia’s Sweet Heart Wax Chunk Pot

Why did I melt this?

Not only do I have a sweet tooth in regards to food, I also have a love of sweet scents. From it’s name alone I assumed it would fall into this category and I hoped it would be based on a certain packet of sweets available in the UK. Only way to find out was to melt it so I did!

What’s a wax chunk pot?

Some wax melts come in pots, so they are literally poured into them in liquid form and then left to set. A wax chunk pot is the same think BUT there are at least two elements to these. One being actual chunks of wax, which tend to be fragranced in one scent. And then on top of this is an overpour of wax which is in another fragrance. This giving it the name of a wax chunk pot.

The Look.

I am a sucker for a wax chunk pot! Never have a found one that wasn’t appealing. In Sweet Heart, the main wax is a very soft shade of lilac. Plain, no glitter, totally smooth. What you see breaking out of the surface is decent sized mid pink coloured chunks of wax. There is nothing sparing about these shapes! This wax chunk pot is filled with them. Not only can you see a good amount creeping through the top, but looking at the bottom and the sides of the pot itself, you can see many more embedded into the wax.

Fragrance.

I expected a similar scent to the sweets Love Hearts. What I got was something similar but with a twist and much better if I’m honest. I got the fizzy sweety like aspect of this. But then what struck me was the deep, dark scent of cherries. This made it have so much depth and gave it a massive hit of the fruities! Unusual, addictive, well balanced and fun to sniff!

In melt.

My favourite bit with a wax chunk pot! I used just under a third of this in 2 warmers (one in the kitchen on one day, the other in the living room a day later). This didn’t melt evenly, which was what you want with this. Slowly, the wax melted, with the main wax going from a solid lilac to a liquid rich, red pink colour. And the chunks, which I think helped make the wax turn into this vibrant shade, was the last to go, almost swimming for it’s life! Super pretty, fun to watch and while warming through released fragrance pretty much immediately.

Strength & Longevity.

Strength is a medium. I found this was the same regardless of which room this was melting in or the warmer used. This was the ideal strength for this particular scent. Longevity was great as usual with wax from Fragrantasia. On the whole I tend to melt the same piece of wax for 2 to 3 days for hours at a time. I had this on for 2 days in 2 rooms for hours, and only changed it to mix up my fragrance, not because the scent had gone.

Recommended?

Lover of fruit and sweet inspired fragrances then yes you need this and it’s totally recommended! I’ve melted ALOT of different fragranced wax over the years and some similar in scent to this one. BUT it’s the cherry element that brings this out. It’s a fun, enjoyable and such a yummy scent that doesn’t go overboard in regards to strength or being sugary sweet. And with it being in a wax chunk pot it automatically is super pretty!

Sweet Hearts Wax Chunk Pot is £2.20. I think the pot is around 45/50g in weight, which will provide hours and hours of fragrance. If this is for you, head over to the website here to order. If this isn’t ticking your fragrance boxes, there are plenty more to choose from. Happy shopping!

Oh K! Foaming Cleansing Bar

It’s probably more so recently I’ve discovered more and more brands when it comes to skincare. Social media has its flaws of course, but can be very useful. Finding out about companies, brands and products through places such as YouTube and Instagram to be honest, is very handy, easy and addictive! Although I haven’t seen much about the brand Oh K! through these sites, I did stumble across them when they had a sale on many months ago. Curiosity, and a lover for a bargain, I purchased their Foaming Cleansing Bar for £1.00! Usual retail price is closer to £10.00.

Oh K! Foaming Cleansing Bar

Why did I buy this?

Cleansers come in a variety of shapes and forms but an actual bar? I’ve heard of people washing their faces with a bar of soap, but surely that’s quite an old fashioned practise? This intrigued me. Products now being placed in bars e.g shampoo, conditioning bars, is much more common now to reduce packaging materials and be more environmentally friendly. But on my shopping travels actual cleansing bars for the face don’t seem to be as obvious. So I wanted to now if it was effective. I liked the idea of it and the price was fabulous!

What is this?

Think of an actual bar of soap but designed to cleanse the face. Simple. Designed for everyday use.

Packaging.

The bar is cling wrapped but came in a small cardboard box. Mostly green in colour, modern in look with a quirky feel to it. Easy on the eye and quite cute!

What do you get?

Not only do you get the actual foaming cleansing bar itself, but also a small mesh bag. From the packaging it shows this mesh bag is to keep the bar in it when not in use, and hang it up in the bathroom.

What does the cleansing bar look like?

Circular in shape. Roughly 6 inches in diameter and 2 inches in depth. Very chunky and a decent size. Mid green in colour, but not opaque. It has an almost semi transparent look to, as if looking through frosted glass and you can see through it but can’t.

Fragrance.

I quite like the scent of this. It’s not strong, but it has a clean and fresh fragrance to it. I definitely get tea tree, as it has that slight antiseptic scent to it. A touch of citrus, and overall quite a neutral scent. Pleasant, not specific and not powerful.

How to use.

Add water to the bar and rub between the hands to create lather. Use the lather to cleanse the face and rinse off.

In use.

I’ve used this for over 10 days, morning and evening. I’ve not used any other cleanser alongside this, as I sometimes double cleanse with another product. And I haven’t changed any other area of my skincare routine, just to see how this fairs on the skin.

The bar itself was super easy to lather up, and did so very well without too much water. Rather than it producing a handful of bubbles it created more of a slightly bubbly cream. On the face it swished around easily, and it felt as if it was cleaning my skin. The only thing I did find if using less soap and more water gave me a better consistency of product to use. I’m not a wearer of make up, but it removed my eyebrow pencil fine. Sun cream hasn’t been tested on as I haven’t used much over the last 10days. But general day to day grime while using this seemed to do the job.

While using this bar, it’s fragrance was hardly noticeable. Just a tinge of something clean.

Skin afterwards.

Did it feel particularly clean and fresh? Yes, it felt like that. What I would say is when removing the cleanser there was that squeaky feel straight after, which I didn’t like. But sorted that out by using a warmed damp flannel to go over my face straight after. Skin in look was normal. No massive differences. It looked as clean as it felt. So it did the job it was designed to do, no more no less.

Recommended?

I think this would appeal to a certain type of person. Those who like the idea of not using products in packaging they feel isn’t necessary is definitely one. Someone who wants a cleansing product that is simple to use and not complicated, but with half decent ingredients. And someone who loves to use a bar of soap! This won’t be for everyone. As a cleanser it does what it’s supposed to do so if you are all or any of the above, this could be good for you. Would I buy this again? No. Using this makes me feel like it’s a task I have to do rather than something I enjoy to do. And I’m frightened one of the kids will think it’s for the body and use it on places my face does not want to go near…

If this does seem like your kind of cleanser, you can find this available to buy from Amazon here for £10.73 (*affiliate link included. It means if you purchase from the link I get a small commission but has no effect on the price you pay*).That may seem pricey, but this should last a good few months so not a considered purchase at all.

The Bath Bae’s Watermelon Bubblegum Bath Soak

A lover of having baths, an addict when it comes to a good bath product! The range of products you can get to pop in the bath is vast! You can get these from pretty much anywhere and any shop, store or supermarket you walk into these days. What you can also do, is go online. There’s plenty of small businesses that sell, handmake and package their very own bath bombs, fizzers, bath rocks and more. As you can imagine I have an extensive bath product stash, which is always a pleasure to delve into. A few evenings ago I headed straight for The Bath Bae’s Watermelon Bubblegum Bath Soak. Bought many months ago, £4.99 for 200g.

The Bath Bae’s Watermelon Bubblegum Bath Soak

Why did I buy this?

Watermelon and bubblegum? Who on earth has ever come up with such an amazing sounding combination except for The Bath Bae? This juicy, mouth dribbling combination caught my eye immediately on their website when ordering, because it sounded delicious and unusual! Why would I NOT buy and use it?

What’s a bath soak?

The Bath Bae’s Bath Soaks are basically powdered bath bombs. Not shaped, just pure, unadulterated bath bomb dust! So they do exactly the same thing as a bath bomb. Within each bag of 200g of bath soak, it’s the same as having two bath bombs.

Packaging.

I love how this company packages their bath products. The bath dust is housed in a packet. On the front it’s clear so you can see whatever bath gem is in it. Company logo on card folded over the top of the packet, and a sticker mentioning product is vegan & cruelty free is visible. On the back it’s opaque and silver in colour, almost holographic in look. To open, rip the top of the packet open and reseal when not in use. This looks quite modern but has a retro twist to it. Eye catching and appealing, perfect for gift giving.

How does the bath soak look?

A fine, powdered mix of baby pink and mint green colours. Not mixed together in it’s packaging. You can see the green on the bottom and the pink on the top. Colours that represent the two fragrances perfectly, and although shouldn’t, work well together look wise.

Fragrance.

In real life, it’s quite a refreshing, subtly scented fruit. Almost similar to red berries that’s been infused in water. This is what I get with this, but of course with the sweet notes of bubblegum added. It’s a lovely scent, great for those who like sweet inspired scents mixed in with fruity elements, without it being overloaded by sugar fragrance wise.

In the bath.

Rather than use the whole bag at once, I used half on one occasion and the rest another. First time I got a mix of the pink and green bath soak and as soon as it hit the water the colour and fragrance was there. The colours were pink and green twisting and turning into each other, while at the same time white foam was created as it fizzed.

My second bath with this consisted mostly of the green section of the bath soak, as that’s the bit that was at the bottom of the packaging. The bath turned into the most stunning sea moss green ever! A totally different shade to when I first used this, and a different shade of green to what was in the packet. A total chameleon and a VERY hard bath product to photograph as each photo taken showed a different shade of green! Like the first bath, a little foam was produced. Not loads, but more than what I thought and both times it took a little while to disappear which was great. So not only was their colour and fragrance, but bubbles too!

Recommended?

Yes! And for a few reasons. You might not think the amount you get is a lot but it’s the right amount for one full on bath treat or two, so good value. The colouring and scent is very unusual, and if like me looking for something different, this could be it! It creates a beautiful looking bath, which not only scented my bathroom nicely but my hallway too! So the question should be, why would I NOT recommend this?

Superdrug’s Vitamin E Coconut Milk Moisturising Bath Soak

Are you a shower or bath person? A shower for me is an act, a bath is an experience! If my bath was poofed away in the middle of the night, I think I would have some form of breakdown! I couldn’t live without mine as I have a bath everyday. Think of a mermaid yanked out of the sea and thrown onto the concrete streets of Manchester city centre. That would be me! My huge stash of bath bombs, bath salts and foaming bath products just wouldn’t exist and that’s not right. One product I’ve been using frequently while the weather has been warm in the UK is Superdrug’s Vitamin E Coconut Milk Moisturising Bath Soak. Bought when on a multi buy deal of buy one get one half price, normal price £3.49 for 500ml.

Superdrug’s Vitamin E Coconut Milk Moisturising Bath Soak

Why did I buy this?

At the time, I ordered quite a few pieces from the Vitamin E range from Superdrug, as there was a buy one get one half price deal on at the time making the products great buys. I ordered this because I love bath soaks/foam baths anyway, I love the scent of coconut and the size of 500ml is pretty much my standard must have size anyway so sold!

What is this?

This bath soak is created to nourish and moisturise the skin, as all of the Vitamin E products are meant to within the range. Providing lather, and leaving the skin in good condition.

Packaging.

500ml of bath soak comes in a neutral toned plastic bottle with a flip top lid to dispense. The look is simple, ties in perfectly with the rest of the range and looks like something you would use on a daily basis. It’s not fancy in appearance but something that the majority of people wouldn’t turn their nose up at.

Scent.

Beautiful. Love this! Why? It’s a very soothing scent which although does have a coconut milk fragrance to it, it’s delicate and not overally synthetic in smell. Very comforting because it’s creamy, with an almost vanilla-esq addition to it, but not too sweet. Perfectly balanced and enjoyable to inhale.

Consistency.

This looks like a cream bath product and not gel like. It’s creamy, off white in colour with a pearlescent effect appearance, and has a thickness to it. It’s a little runnier than other bath products I normally use. So definitely a bath soak not a bath gel, but closer to a bath cream. But an even better description would be a bath milk!

In the bath.

You don’t to use much, but I’m generous when it comes to using products like this. Under warm running water, this foams up quickly and so well. Lots and lots of white fluffy bubbles were produced, leaving the underneath quite clear in colour. The bubbles/foam lasts a good amount of time, which always makes bath time fun.

The fragrance very much is there from beginning to end. Remember, this isn’t a powerhouse scent wise so doesn’t whack you in the face. It’s just not that type of fragrance. This makes it ideal if you want something that is delicate but soothing and comforting and naturally aides with relaxation.

I found bathing in this totally calming. Bubbles, fragrance and feeling as if my skin wasn’t reacting to this provides an ideal experience.

On my skin.

Very gentle. My skin has settled down a lot after our recent heatwave and it seems pretty normal now. But I was using this while it was easily irritated, sore and itchy, and it was absolutely fine! Didn’t dry out the skin, didn’t make it itchy. Was super safe to use for me.

Recommended?

1000%! Such a simple product but its a lovely one! For the size you get this would last a decent amount of time and great for family use. Lovely scent, bubbles galore and not stripping or irritating on the body (not for me anyway!). And can we discuss the price for one moment? The Vitamin E range seems to be on some form of promotion pretty much every week without fail. Buy one get one half price seems the norm. And this beauty is currently on a buy one get one free (at time of writing this post), so 1000lts for £3.49! Want an understated, affordable but brilliant bath soak? Grab yours here and enjoy.

Miss So…? Love Potion Fraiche

I love a good fragrance, don’t you? Am I the only person that sprays themselves generously, wondering if I’ve overdone it then add some more? I can do this because the majority of the fragrances I use on a daily basis are super affordable to buy. And another important factor, is they’re not too strong in regards to their formulations. So no harming of senses, children or myself, when I douse myself in the stuff! One fragrance I’ve been dipping in and out of recently has been Miss So…? Love Potion Fraiche. Bought from Superdrug when it was half price, down from £7.99 to £3.98 for 50ml.

Miss So…? Love Potion Fraiche

Why did I buy this one?

I’ve used the body mists from this brand before and I really wanted to try a slightly stronger version, as the mists I really enjoyed scent wise. The price of this was great, and the scent description on the website seemed to tick all my fragrance boxes.

Packaging.

The fragrance comes in a simple but quite youthful pale pink box with black text and the Miss So…? logo going across it, as it does with all their items in the range.

The fragrance itself is in a glass spray bottle, flat bottomed with curved sides. Clear, so you can see the fragrance in it, with the Miss So…? black logo going around it mirroring the box. The lid is glass, square shaped, and what you would expect to see on many perfume bottles. Overall, the look is basic but it works. Personally, I think it’s aimed more towards the younger market of teens to mid 20’s.

Fragrance.

Sweet but not sickly. White florals mixed with berries with a little musk. Mouthwateringly good! Youthful, girlie, fun, definitely screams daytime to me and worn while the sun is out and the skies are clear.

Strength & Longevity.

Medium. Personally I could have this a little stronger because I adore it! But guess what? I just add more! It doesn’t get too heady if you reapply this. I put it on, it’s there and I enjoy it. Longevity is fine. Normally this is applied before I leave for work or heading out in general, and it’s still there when I finish but slightly lesser in strength.

Top Tip.

If you have other fragrances from the range, I think this would layer well with some if not all of them. I noticed this with the perfume mists I’ve worn in the past. A great way to create something bespoke and to change things up a bit when you get bored of the same scents.

Recommended?

Feminine, fruity, floral! If you like this killer combo of scents you will love this! I spray this on myself and it makes me smile, its beautiful! Packaging, even though I don’t think it targets a wide range of ages, there’s nothing wrong with it and no one would be offended by how it looks. To give as a gift to yourself or someone else is a budget friendly buy but a quality buy too.

Great thing about this fragrance, is if you want to grab yourself a bottle or two, it’s half price at the time of writing this post. For less than £4.00, you can’t go wrong! Go on, treat yourself here or visit your local store with your credit card in hand because you will need it!

Fragrantasia’s Campfire On The Beach

As much as I would like to make a cheeky purchase of home fragrance items such as wax melts right now, I’m not going to. I have enough wax melts to last me months and months of continuous melting. But it’s like owning multiple perfumes or body mists. Each one is used dependant on mood or occasion, and wax melts is exactly the same for me. So having a healthy amount to mix things up is a must! I was very lucky a few months to receive some wax goodies from Amy at Fragrantasia. A small UK business that handmakes their own fragranced wax in a variety of different forms and fragrances. Amy sent wax melts that she knew I hadn’t tried before, and thought I would like. One item included, and one that has been melting away recently, has been Campfire On The Beach.

Fragrantasia’s Campfire On The Beach

Why did I melt this one?

Normally, fragrance/wax melt names give an idea of how it will actually smell and this I thought was interesting. Would it be fresh? Would it have warmth to it? Would it be heavy on the musk? I was dying to try so thought it was best to melt to find out.

Appearance.

These came in a set of 4 small dome shapes. Cream in colour, with a sprinkle of black and silver chunky glitter shapes on top. So simple but very easy on the eye.

Fragrance.

When I actually got these out to melt I instantly fell in love with the fragrance. Why? It reminds me so much of one of my all time favourite scents called Fireside. It has some woody notes in this, giving it a slightly masculine feel. Some musk is in there too, and a little saltiness. And with possibly floral providing subtle sweetness to it? It’s a stunner!

In melt.

I couldn’t help but have a childish laugh to myself as these were placed in my wax warmer. Two domes sat side by side with glittery middles put my mind in the gutter. But they melted away beautifully, and left a gorgeous liquid, almost shimmery beige coloured wax pool with the glitter floating on top. The scent was immediately there, and the room was thankful for it. 2 melts was the perfect amount and needed no more or no less.

Strength & Longevity.

Even though this didn’t blow my brain out of my nostrils, I would say this was a medium to strong in strength. I had another fragranced piece of wax melting in another room, plus cooking various food items at the same time, and this fought its way through like a soldier! Strong doesn’t always have to mean full on, just dominant and obvious. Longevity of this was fantastic! I loved this so much I had this on for 4 days straight. I couldn’t tell you for how many hours at a time this melted for (but it was hours). By day 4 the strength died down and I decided to change it.

Recommended?

Yes! Yes! Yes! This is on my list of favourite wax melts from Fragrantasia! It’s one of those scents that I could melt anytime of the year, anytime of the day and truly enjoy it! It’s such a beautiful, unusual blend that you just won’t find on the high street. And the longevity is amazing with strength perfect! I wish it was still available, but sadly, not right now as it was part of a collection. But visit the website as there are so many stunning fragrances to choose, in various shapes and sizes, you will be spoilt for choice!

Dirty Fresh Cosmetics Over The Rainbow Bath Bar

Cooler temperatures in the UK at the moment are very much welcomed by me. Feeling hot and sweaty all the time morning, noon and night, is not fun. Right now I can enjoy my bathing routine, relax and unwind, without continuously wiping away a sweat moustache or mopping up a dripping hair line. So is it time for a bath time treat? Oh yes I think it is! I couldn’t resist using Over The Rainbow Bath Bar by Manchester based Dirty Fresh Cosmetics. It costs £3.99, but I bought this earlier in the year when there was a special promotion on the website.

Dirty Fresh Cosmetics Over The Rainbow Bath Bar

What’s a Bath Bar?

I think a bath bar is similar to a bath bomb, just in a bar shape! Like most bath bombs, these should provide colour, fragrance, and create an enjoyable bathing experience.

What does it look like?

I love the look of this! The thing I find with bath bombs, fizzers, bubble bars etc, is look wise they need to be eye catching. They have to grab my attention and the better they look, the more chances it has for me to buy it. And what I like about this is it’s not intricate in look but attention grabbing it is! Rectangular in shape and quite chunky (8.5cm in length, 5 cm in width and 3 cm in depth).

Its made up of 3 block colours of a pinky purple, blue and orange. Each one layered on top of one another, in a handmade, natural, rock forming kind of way. On the top it’s green but with little multi coloured dots on it made up of the same colours as the other layers of the bar. Who wouldn’t want to use this in the bath??

Fragrance.

I didn’t get much of a scent from this. What I did get was slightly fruity and creamy. Do bare in mind I’ve had this bath bar hidden away for months, which may have affected the fragrance and it’s strength.

In the bath.

Wow! Talk about fizz, whirl and pop! As suggested on the website, I filled my bath with warm water and then popped the bath bar on the top. What it did was show what the meaning of bath art really is. It fizzed as soon as it touched the water. And with that fizzing action, streams of colours were released from it forming it’s own rainbow. All the colours featured in the bath bar before it went into the water was what was visible, purple, blue, orange and green. Absolutely stunning!

No bubbles were created, just a little foam as the colours came out due to the bath bar’s fizzing action. And once the colours had settled, the water itself turned into such an inviting, shade of emerald green which was unusual and very Loki like!

Still didn’t get much fragrance, only slight, but this didn’t bother me as I was enjoying the bath itself way too much. It was relaxing, and provided me with the perfect time to read my book!

On the skin.

My skin has been a little strange of late. Generally fine on the body, but the most recent heat wave in the UK has made specific areas raised, and incredibly itchy. Thanks to a steroid cream, lots of moisturising and cooler temps, its in such better condition. But it’s still something that I’ve been cautious with when it comes to what it comes in contact with. And this has created no issues at all. No irritations, no drying out the skin or anything!

Recommended?

For the look, size of this (130g, great amount of bath bar), how it looks in water and how gentle it was on the skin, it’s a definite yes! Price wise, if you were to get something similar from a well know bath bomb shop on the high street, this would cost much more. So great value and affordable. What I would want to do is get another one of these and use straight away, just to double check the fragrance. If the fragrance is stronger, then I’m buying these in bulk!
