I was lucky enough to be given a set of Mamia toiletries to try by Aldi, I assume the opinions of the participants will be used as part of the "I like this, and I also like this" advertising campaign, which is great.
Mamia Baby Bath is strikingly similar in looks to Johnson's Baby Bath at first glance. Same colour, shape and size of bottle. The same goes for all the Mamia Baby toiletries, each item has a matching Johnson's product. This is great because it is easy to pick out what you want, and Aldi must be confident in their products because customers will naturally compare.
The Bath Test
When I squeezed the bottle under running water to get the bubbles going, I noticed that the liquid is a lurid blue colour. It doesn't look natural and I would prefer it visually if it were maybe paler and more creamy.
The texture is very thick and gelatinous compared to the Johnson's equivalent, and I needed a lot to get the bubbles going.
The smell of the Baby Bath is lovely and reminds me of parma violets. The scent starts off quite strong, but sadly fades off throughout the bath, as do the bubbles. The scent doesn't linger on the skin, which I don't mind, as I use a lavender based moisturiser on my baby to help her sleep (hollow laugh).
At 79p for 500ml Mamia Baby Bath is an absolute steal, and I would buy it if they made an equivalent of Johnson's Bedtime Bath.
I gave it 4 stars because the bubbles don't last very long.
I finished my freebie test bottle last week and bought a new one from Aldi. The formula appears to have changed and the Baby Bath is not gelatinous and thick anymore and the bubbles last over 10 minutes. This is a massive improvement on the original test product and I have upgraded my review to 5 stars.
