When do you have a bath? Mornings? Evenings? When you feel poorly, tired or sore? And how many baths do you have per week? One? Two? I have one everyday in the evening and dare I say sometimes two…and will still have a shower in the morning before work! It’s part of my routine and a must to finish my day as it helps to get my body and mind right. So I thought it was time to try out something new and from someone new. Dirty Fresh Cosmetics Bedtime Bath Bar is a bath time treat I’ve recently used. I bought this a few months ago when there was a special promotion. This 130g bath bar costs £4.15.
Why this one? I bought a selection of different bars based on the scent descriptions and what I thought I would like. But my reason for using this one was because I wanted something that was relaxing and able to chill me out. With the name Bedtime I thought it was the perfect choice!
What’s a bath bar? My definition of a bath bar is a simple one. It provides the same bathing experience as a bath bomb but, in my opinion, a bath bar tends to be a little more moisturising than a typical bath bomb. And of course are bar or block shaped!
Packaging. The bath bar was wrapped in clear plastic with labelling on both front and back.
Appearance. This is a good, chunky bath bar! Size wise this took up most of the palm of my hand. Rectangular in shape with a texture in look and feel comparable to a bath bomb, so chalky and grainy. Beautifully two toned in colour with streaks of purple running through blue.
Scent. Exactly how it’s described on the website, I got lavender and vanilla. It’s not that heady, smack you in the face lavender. You can smell it and the herbal feel of it is there but it’s not strong. The vanilla gives it a little creaminess but it’s not sickly sweet. A lovely fragrance combo which overall was subtle. * Something to note here. Having hay fever means my nose is exceptionally stuffy, so will need to revisit the strength of scent of this bar at some point. Although I can get the scent, strength may not be picked up accurately*.
How to use. Rather than let warm water run and popping this in the bath, Dirty Fresh Cosmetic suggest to run a hot bath and then place the bar on top.
In the bath. I did as the directions suggested, I popped this on top of a very warm, filled bath. And boy oh boy did this fizz! Sound wise you could hear it cackling away. Visually you could see small bubbles flowing off it while it released eye catching, mesmerising streams of purple and blue along with foam. I have to say this was one of the most stunning and vibrant baths I have ever seen to date! The foam that was created wasn’t a huge amount and didn’t stick around for a long time. But what it did do was leave a deep, blue/purple bath which was still incredibly impressive!
The fragrance came to life as soon as this made contact with the water. During bath time the fragrance was there but very much delicate and in the background.
On the skin. In the bath this bath bar didn’t strip my skin, in fact it had a light moisturising element to it. Out of the bath my skin didn’t feel dry and I wasn’t craving body lotion straight away.
Clean up. I have never had a bath that was such a deep and dark colour as this one. Some people worry how the clean up is after, and I have to say no different to any other bath time. No staining AT ALL, I washed the bath as normal and absolutely no issues.
Recommended? If, like me you love your bath products, this is one bath bar you HAVE to try out so it’s a yes from me! Good size, great look to it, fair price and the bath art you get is INSANE! I thoroughly enjoyed this bath! It provided everything I needed from it and was an absolute joy to use. On my repeat purchase list and I want to try out more products from Dirty Fresh Cosmetics for sure!
