This is a review of Arangia Bath Salts from Ancienne Ambiance London. I received a tube of these bath salts to try in a beauty box and used them over the space of a couple of baths.
Description and ingredients
Made with refreshing orange zest, arangia salts are a delicious mood lifter with a mix of sea salts, Epsom salts and delicious orange zest, arangia salts are a hundred percent natural and free from any harmful chemicals. These salts are bursting with orange fragrance and are ideal to help bring forth happy thoughts. Arangia salts are particularly beneficial for maintaining a healthy, smooth and glamorous skin.
First cultivated in China around 2500 BC, oranges made their way to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and were most commonly used for medicinal purposes.
I used my bath salts in a nice hot bath but you can use them with olive oil to create a natural body exfoliator if you wish. I just tipped in a handful with each bath and the tube was soon gone!
I haven't used bath salts in a long time, mainly because I usually use bubble bath and bath salts along with bath cubes seem to have largely died out in the shops as a pampering treat. I was open to using these though and knew they would be expensive to buy so planned an evening in the bath when I wasn't going to wash my hair so I could enjoy the spa experience. I was pleased that they were all natural and promised to lift mood and waited for the happy thoughts to come!
I have to say I could hardly notice these bath salts in the bath, they were so subtle. OK so they melted in the water straight away so I didn't have to sit on a gritty base but I really couldn't smell anything on the water or on my skin afterwards so I was a little disappointed. I certainly didn't achieve a glamorous skin so I think the claims are a little far-fetched to be honest.
The bath salts cost £20 for 300ml which is pretty expensive in my opinion. You do need to use a generous amount each time to be able to detect or smell the product in your bath.
This was a brand I had never heard of before but they do have a very nice website. The company sell scented candles mainly and a few room accessories and jewellery. The bath salts fall within the Goddess range which is a nice way to describe a luxury product. For the price I really can't see a repeat purchase as I was quite underwhelmed by these bath salts.
