“ Brand: Asda / Type: Bath Milk / Subcategory: Bath Cream / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I love my baths and much as I'll keep going back to the more expensive products I do like to look for cheaper alternatives every now and then in an effort to save some money. On my last visit to ASDA I found their bath products in an offer allowing me to buy 2 for £1.50. At that price I couldn't resist!
The product I'm reviewing this time is ASDA's bath milk with rosehip and passion flower.
This comes in a clear bottle allowing me to see the pink, creamy product inside. On the top of the bottle is a pink screw-top lid. I wouldn't say it's the most attractive of packaging but then own brand products generally don't have very appealing packaging. It's certainly not the worst I've seen by any means.
The label on the front is a clear sticky label that has just been stuck onto the bottle. It tells me that it is ASDA's essential care indulgent bath milk with rosehip and passion flower. It also tells me that it contains Vitamin E and is designed to "envelope the senses and nourish the skin."
On the back there is a whole host of information including information about the product, directions, ingredients and warnings. There is also the shelf life (which is 24 months) and the fact that the bottle contains 750ml which I've found to be enough for about 5/6 baths.
The bottle itself is recyclable but the lid is only recyclable in certain areas and so check before putting it out for your kerbside recycling collection.
The lid is easy to open despite being plain plastic with little to no apparent grip my hands do not slip on either opening or closing. I then simply pour a fairly large blob underneath running water. It produces a lot of bubbles which last the whole duration of my bath - between about 45minutes and an hour.
The smell isn't really noticeable when you open the bottle but as soon as it comes into contact with the water and starts to dissolve a wonderfully feminine floral scent starts to fill the whole room. It is slightly on the sweet side but I like this as I find floral scents can sometimes be too overpowering and strong - this isn't the case at all. However for those of you who don't like sweet scents it isn't overly sweet at all so it shouldn't be a problem.
Once fully dissolved it turns the bath water a very feminine light pink and on stepping into the bath it feels very creamy and moisturising for my skin. It does say that it contains added moisturiser to soften skin and this is immediately apparent on stepping into the bath.
On getting out of the bath my skin feels soft, smooth and moisturised. I do need to use extra moisturiser on my legs especially if I have just shaved but the rest of my body can easily go without any extra moisturising and I would put this down to the added moisturiser in the bath milk.
The scent lasts on my skin all day and isn't overpowered by other products I use but blends nicely with other floral and fruity products but it doesn't quite go so well with woody scents so be aware of this if you are trying to combine the scent with other products.
Being an ASDA product it means that it is covered by the ASDA guarantee which states that if you are not completely happy with your product they will both refund and replace it.
It is also suitable for vegetarians - but not vegans I'm afraid. None of the ingredients have been tested on animals and ASDA funds research into alternatives to animal testing.
Pricing, Availability, Recommendations
Being an ASDA product this is only available from ASDA stores but can be bought online and in store. This 750ml bottle costs £1 but there is an offer allowing you to buy two bottles for £1.50.
I would highly recommend this product. It is very feminine and so probably wouldn't suit men but it has a wonderful effect on my skin, the bubbles last throughout the whole duration of my bath and the scent lasts on my skin all day. The packaging as it is so basic may not appeal to everyone but this doesn't affect me since the packaging doesn't affect the quality of the product itself. I would be more then happy to recommend this product as I can't find a fault with it especially for just a measly £1, 75p if bought on offer.
When it comes to bath products I get through ever such alot of the stuff. I bathe more often than I do shower cos I suffer with really bad back and spine pain. I usually buy top branded stuff but this I spotted in Asda costing £1.00 and deciding that that offered really good value for money and after a quick smell check in the shop was happy with it so bought it.
See-through plastic bottle with a light pink plastic screw on/off lid/cap to the top of it and on the front in pink writing I am told that it is Asda Essential Care 'Indulging' Bath Milk 'Helps envelop the senses and nourish the skin with natural extracts of rosehip and passion flower enriched with vitamin E'. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and being told how to use it, ingredients and a warning is listed, I'm told that the product is suitable for Vegetarians and to use it up after opening it within 24 months and contact details for Asda are given. It's a rather cheap looking bottle however it is informative as it needs to be and I appreciate being able to see the bath milk through the bottle.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Back Of The Bottle:
Asda Indulging Bath Milk has been specially formulated with natural extract of Rosehip & Passionflower and a floral fragrance, to help envelop the senses and nourish the skin. Contains added moisturiser to help leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
All you need of this light pink, creamy looking bath milk is a few blobs. It pours out of the bottle with ease and is scented prettily and femininly with a very soft and sweet floral fragrance and to me even smells a little like a baby product!
It gives way to lots of thick white foamy looking bubbles which I find stay for the duration of my hour (or so!) long soaks and the water feels lightly hydrating and soft enough without being at all greasy. When I pat myself dry I can smell the scent delicately on my skin though that fragrance does wear off pretty quickly but my skin is left feeling soft, smooth, supple and fresh.
This really isn't a bad bath milk at all. I wish the scent lingered on my skin a little bit longer than it does but at least my skin is left feeling in good condition and with no residue on it allowing my skin to feel like it can breath!
Only available in Asda stores costing £1.00 a bottle.
I love all sorts of bubble baths and shower creams but I never stick to one brand, I'm always sucked in by appearance and price and most of all smell. I have been shopping in Asda a lot lately and have been using their very own range of bath soaks. I was using one of theirs for a good few weeks and loved it, however I fancied a change.
My most recent purchase was Asda Bath Milk with extracts of Rosehip and Passionflower.
All of Asda's bath soaks come in a large 750ml see through plastic bottle, with a plastic screw off cap. It's a fairly basic and cheap bottle, but it's nice to see the colour of the bath soak inside the bottle.
The bath milk is a creamy looking, pale pink bubble bath, and the bottle itself has a pink screw off cap. We are told on the bottle that Asda Indulging bath milk has been specially formulated with natural extracts of rosehip and passionflower and a floral fragrance to help envelop the senses and nourish the skin. It contains added moisture to help leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
Pouring the bath soak into my bath I can instantly smell the floral and soapy scent, not overly strong yet not too weak either. There is nothing special about the scent but it does smell nice. The pink liquid pours out quite quickly as it is quite thin. I was expecting it to be thicker than what it is as the one I was using before this was a lot thicker and more indulgent than this one.
The floral fragrance didn't last all that long really and when poured into the bath whilst my water was running it didn't create a mass of bubbles either. In fact just a few bubbles appear but they soon disapeared to.
I don't feel this particular bath soak makes a difference to my bath, nor too my skin. It smells 'nice', but I don't feel it benefits my skin in anyway. Some bubble baths I use can really help my skin feel soft and smooth and they leave a fantastic scent on my skin afterwards too. This one for me just seems like one of asda's cheaper and lower quality bath soaks as it doesn't offer much at all.
I love nothing more than a soak in a bath full of hot soapy bubbles. However I am not a one bubble bath type of girl and am always eager to try out different fragrances and bath time products.
I asked my husband to pick me up a bubble bath in Asda the other day, however I was foolish enough to allow him to choose for me. (don't I ever learn from my mistakes?) When he returned home he produced from one of the grocery bags what I can only describe as something that my 84 year old grandmother would call old fashioned.
The bottle of asda brand bath milk, was the most sickly shade of pink I have ever seen. It screamed old and boring from it's pearly pink plastic lid. There was one word however that was written on the plastic bottle (in pink lettering of course.) That caught my eye and saved me from donating this bath milk to the local church fete. The word was 'indulging'.
I love anything to do with indulging, and therefore decided to give this bath milk a try. I have to say when I opened the bottle, I was pleased and suprised by the scent. It was quite a floral scent but had a very fruity exotic element to it which made it fun and exciting. You could certainly smell the passion flower ingredient coming through. I felt as though I was being transported to some tropical island.
By running a good glug of this bath milk under the hot water tap I was left with a good supply of soft, foamy bubbles. The smell of the bath milk now became more intense and filled the bathroom with a deliciously sweet aroma. I did find that due to the thick consistency of the bath milk, I had a bit of trouble controling the amount that I put into the bath.
When stepping into my wonderfully inviting bath of sweetly smelling bubbles, I was really impressed by the soft milky texture to my bath water. The scent was not overpowering but deliciously relaxing. I could feel the warm milky water soothing away my stresses and it was perfect.
However, I was very disappointed that the bubbles had no staying power at all. Within minutes all the bubbles had virtually gone from my bath. This certainly took the sparkle out of my bathing experience. I also found that the milkiness of the water, which I had found so appealing when first entering the bath, was now beginning to irritate me. I thought that it felt quite thick and greasy and somehow made me feel like I would need a shower after coming out.
When getting out of the bath, I found the surface of the bath itself to be quite slippery, which is worth noting if you are buying this for an older person. I did however find, when drying that it left a beautiful delicate scent on my skin. I wouldn't really say that I noticed a great deal of difference in terms of moisturisation to my body though. Although there was a slight positive improvement to the smoothness of my arms.
In conclusion, I would neither buy this bath milk again, or ever ever ask my husband to pick out a product for me. Although this indulging bath milk is only a £1 I think this low price is certainly reflected in the quality of the product. I do like the scent of this bath milk, but everything else left a lot to be desired.
The worst thing though, regarding this product. Has got to be the packaging. It is so sickly and prim it is shocking. I like something that will look cool and exciting in my bathroom and I'm afraid that this product is as far away from cool as exciting as one could get.
