Advantages: lovely scent, pretty effect in bath
Disadvantages: bubbles disappear quickly, no effect on skin
I really love a good bubble bath, they are so comforting and relaxing and more enjoyable than just having a quick wash in the shower. I get through loads of bath products because of this, and I can't stand having a bath without bubbles, it is one of the saddest experiences ever. I bought this Bubble Bath Confetti recently as I really liked the wintery theme. It is made by Avon, so you can buy from your local Avon representative or online at www.avonshop.co.uk. The RRP is £4.00, but at the time of purchase it was available for £2.40.
Product description: "Thailand lotus flower and coconut scented bath confetti. Sprinkle under running water. Leaves skin feeling refreshed and lightly scented."
The bath bubbles come in a small plastic tub and contains 35g of product. This didn't really seem like a lot when I first saw it, but actually when I used it there was enough to last me for 5 generously bubbled baths. The Snowflakes Bath Confetti looks really cute, with a simple snowflake image on the front of the tub, and the confetti itself is very decorative. The confetti is made up from lots of little snowflake shapes in shades of white and purple.
To use, you simply let the confetti dissolve into your bath water. To make the confetti turn the bath bubbly I like to sprinkle the confetti under the running taps. I also prefer to wait until the confetti has completely dissolved before I get into the bath, as I made the mistake of getting in with the snowflakes swirling around me, and then promptly freaked out as a half-disolved sticky snowflake brushed up against my leg and tickled me!
The scent of the bath confetti is delicious and exotic. It is not exactly what I would have expected from a wintery themed item, but the lotus flower and coconut is a pretty fragrance and creates a nice relaxing effect. To begin with the confetti gives off a load of lovely bubbles, but then within only 5 minutes each and every bubble disappears and I'm sat there with plain old boring bath water, which I hate! I was disappointed that the bubbles fade so quickly, and this happens practically straight away, even if I'm just soaking for a few minutes and not splashing around, or using other products just yet, or doing anything that could spoil the bubbles. The bath confetti looks great as it's floating around the bath, but not only do the bubles then vanish, but it does not have any effect on my skin. It's not softening or moisturising so it does feel like a bit of a waste of time to use the product, as it falls flat on pretty much every area where you would want it to perform.
Overall I'd say this is ok as a novelty item but it's not something that I would bother to buy again. The confetti looks pretty but the bubbles quickly disappear and it did nothing for my skin. It would make a fun little stocking filler, but if you want an effective bath product I would advise you to look elsewhere.
Summary: pretty but pointless
