      Another great product from AVON - many more to come

      I decided to give this product ago when I was browsing through the brochure and noticed AVON had an offer on - can't remember how much exactly I paid for this but sadly they don't sell this scent no more? I am a regular for purchasing Avon products even if I don't like some it still doesn't put me off buying other items as I've been buying them for years now. The bottle is clear so you can see the product inside the watermelon I have being an orangey pink colour. When I removed the seal from the top of the bottle the smell came bursting out and smelt just delicious. I poured just a small amount of this in the bath whilst running the hot tap and instantly creating bubbles I just couldn't wait to jump in and relax. The smell fills the room and the bubbles last a good while. I like to rub this into my skin as the smell isn't too over powering and I find it leaves my skin with the smell of watermelon even after using my body wash. I love this product and will defiantly be buying another when I've used this one up.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Ideal for a nice long soak. The hardest bit is choosing the flavour!

        It's hard to imagine Avon without their own brand bubble bath in its iconic bottle (something I personally love- it's a little bit of retro chic for the bathroom).

        Avon sell their bubble bath in a range of scents, and they're usually pretty reasonably priced, at around £2 for 500ml or £2.50 for 1l. This price can and will vary, depending on what offers Avon is running in their current brochure- just after Christmas, I got four of the 500ml baths for a fiver, which seemed pretty reasonable. It also meant I could try all the new flavours too!

        I find Avon's bubble bath to be decent value- I don't need to use much to get a lot of bubbles, and the scent is long lasting (that's important, because I like a nice soak in the bath). I wouldn't say that the scent lingers too much on the skin when you get out, which is a shame, because some of the fragrances are lovely.

        Avon have a few core fragrances of bubbles they sell all the time- Soft Pink, Lavender and Sensitive come to mind- as well as other fragrances that they switch in and out. Because the scent of a bubble bath is all-important if you're going to wallow in it for hours (I hope that's not just me), I'll run through the ones I've tried and tested!

        Soft Pink: this is a lovely, floral smell. There's something that I can only describe as quite old-fashioned about it, but that just might be because Avon have been making it for so long. There is something very comforting about it, and it's a scent that I very much identify with Avon. A good summer bath time treat!

        Lavender: this is a lovely, relaxing smell. Although it does smell of lavender, it's a very different smell from what you might expect with, say, a Radox bath, and more like lavender talcum powder. Soothing.

        Violet: this is a new fragrance, and it's absolutely lovely- my current favourite. It reminds me of parma violets or violet perfume and is light and fresh and very relaxing. I've ordered a couple of big bottles of this from my Avon lady just in case Avon suddenly decide to discontinue it.

        Blackberry and Vanilla: this is a really comforting, fruity, vanilla smell- the two scents combine really well. It's a little like the smell of blackberry crumble and custard!

        White Lily: again, this is a lovely, light fragrance with a strong scent of lily of the valley. I might have to stock up on this one as well. I would say this and the Violet fragrance will be perfect for the summer months.

        Sensitive: this is a little harder to describe but the smell reminds me of baby powder and is also comforting. I find all Avon bubbles to be gentle to the skin so I can't really say if Sensitive is any kinder than the rest of the range.

        The fact there are so many lovely scents to chose from is a big plus- and I'm sure I've missed some!

        I would definitely recommend this as a reasonably priced and good quality bubble bath. And apart from anything else, you'll be keeping your poor Avon lady fit carrying all those big bottles of bubble bath to your home.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An OK bubble bath but nothing special

        ===The Product===

        Comes in 500 ml or 1 litre sizes.
        Ribbed opaque bottle with white screw top.
        Has a flat strip down the centre which shows an image to represent the contents.
        Made n Poland and use within 12 months.
        Has foil seal to top of bottle when new.



        ===Cost===

        Full price £5 for 1 litre and £4 for 500 mls.
        Can often be bought on offer - currently £2.50 and £2 respectively.



        ===Varieties===

        * Strawberry Sorbet
        * Violet
        * White Lily
        * Soft Pink
        * Sensitive
        * Lavender
        * Blackberry and Vanilla
        * New Watermelon out in brochure 8.



        ===My Opinion===

        These standard bubble baths by Avon have been going for many years and I think even the bottle is pretty much the same.
        Over the years the fragrances have changed and Avon are continually bringing out new versions and discontinuing others - much to some people's annoyance. At Christmas time they often bring out seasonal ones such as with cranberry or candy canes.
        I must admit I have not bought these for a while, but recently I did purchase a Lily of the Valley one which was being sold off as it was discontinued.
        I would not pay the full price for them but they are often on offer and sometimes you can buy three or four for £5.
        To begin with the foil seal on the bottle was quite fiddly as it had no tab to pull so I resorted to using a pen to poke it off with. Luckily I did this before going into the bathroom as I can recall having to try and break my way in using the end of a disposable razor previously.
        The liquid is quite runny and clear, and although not too strong it did have a lovely floral scent and I could detect the Lily of the Valley aroma. When smelt from the bottle it reminded me of the fresh sap smell you get when daffodils are picked.
        In the bath this made lots of bubbles which lasted a long time - not until I got out of the bath, but I do stay in for absolutely ages, so I was not expecting them to. The smell is nice but not very strong and does not fill the bathroom like some others I have used.
        I have bought some of the Christmas versions to add as small gifts for my sisters presents and as they are seasonal they make a nice little extra item.
        I like this Lily of the Valley and its a shame it has now been discontinued.
        When o offer these are reasonably priced to buy for general family use. The smells are not so storng that I feel anyone in the family could use them.



        ===Many Other Uses?===

        If you search on Google some people use this for everything - from washing their pets to washing up dishes.
        I cannot say I have tried cleaning carpet or anything like that with it but for stuff like floors or hand washing it would be fine. Personally I don't know why people would use it to wash their dishes (why not use a proper dish washing liquid?) - and even for floors it would be cheaper to buy some of the Value Bubble Baths on sale but each to their own I suppose.
        One person was even advocating using it to clean inside your fridge which I definitely would not recommend.



        ===Star Rating===

        4 stars - depending on the cost.



        ===Would I Recommend?===

        Yes.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not all bad....but could be better

        Avon Bubble baths come in an array of popular fragrances. New additions come out on a regular basis. The newest addition to Avons bubble baths is violet, but others include Soft Pink, White Lily, Strawberry Sorbet, Lavender, Sensitive and Blackberries and Vanilla. The bottles are translucent, with ridges down the sides and the fragrance of the bubble bath written down the front. Each bottle has a different font of writing and one or two pictures which are relevant to that particular flavour, the Avon Logo and with a white screw top lid.

        Avon bubble baths are available in 500ml bottles and 1 litre bottles. The normal price for these is £4 for the 500ml and £5 for the 1 litre bottle-however, at least 50% of the time these are available on an offer of some sort.

        The bubble baths are produced in Poland, by Avon cosmetics. You simply remove the lid and the foil protection and tip the desired amount into hot running water to maximise bubbles.

        My favourite fragrance of Avon Bubble bath is 'Blackberries and Vanilla'. It has a deep red colouring to it and smells really sweet. I would say it smells more like Vanilla, but with a hint of Blackberry. Generally I buy the smaller bottles, as these seem to be available more often, but if I'm honest, a bottle doesn't last me very long. Scentwise, the Avon bubble baths smell absolutely gorgeous, but I find that they don't create that many bubbles, unless I literally pour in a quarter of a bottle. If purchased at full price, then this works out very expensive.

        Avon bubble bath does make the bath feel a lot more relaxing than a bath with no bubbles, but I find that I end up with very wrinkly skin if I sit in the bath for much longer than fifteen minutes. My skin tends to feel slightly rubbery immediately after using this. The bubble bath smells great in the bottle, but I don't think that the fragrance is strong enough or long lasting enough once mixed with water. I would recommend this product if it was on sale and if you like a bath with a few bubbles, but not loads. As I like a bath with lots of bubbles, I would only rate this product as mediocre.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Go on choose on of these and have a lovely bubbly bath!

          I bought 3 of these Avon bubble baths when they were on offer for £5. You can buy them in 500ml or 1L sizes and think they cost £4 and £5 respectively when not on offer. I don't think that I would ever buy them at that price, they are only bubble baths after all.

          You can get these in a range of fragrances, I like the cherry and the water melon and have yet to try the vanilla one yet. They smell very fruity and it seems to last for the duration of my bath, which is usually around 40 minutes. The bubbles are nice and bubbly, if that makes sense. I always put in a good glug of the stuff while the bath is running as I like lots of bubbles. They also last for the duration of my bubble bath.

          I don't find the bubbles dry out my skin and make it taut like some shower gels etc do. They don't moisturise my skin either though so I still use a moisturiser afterwards.

          The bottles are as shown in the picture above, they are made of coloured plastic, which depends on the fragrance of the bubbles. They have screw tops, which is useful because I often find that clip tops snap quite easily.

          There really isn't much else to say about these, so go on give them a go and enjoy a lovely bath!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good value bubble bath

          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. Avon produce many of their own range items, and one popular product is their bubble bath. This comes in many different fragrances that seem to vary brochure by brochure, although there are old favourites such as Lavender that are available all the time. These bubble baths come in either 500ml or 1000ml bottles and vary in price from £2.00 - £5.00 depending on what offers are on at the time, and these are prone to change frequently.

          I have recently been using Avon's bubble bath in the limited edition "Sweet Candy" fragrance. I bought the massive 1 litre sized bottle which is a very generous amount. It comes in a translucent plastic bottle that has a series of ridges down each side. The bubble bath itself is a pale coloured gel but you can still see it through the bottle and easily see how much you have left. There is a plastic screw top lid which you remove and then simply pour the bubble bath out of the spout at the top. The bottle is decorated on the label at the front and has a nice pretty look to it, with images of candy canes running down the front section. This doesn't look overly seasonal or Christmas themed and after smelling it I would say it's perfect for all year round.

          To use, you simply run it into a hot bath under the taps and let the bubbles begin! I normally end up putting in quite a lot as I like really bubbly baths, and I measure the amount by the bumps on the sides of the bottle. I will pour in between half to one bump's worth of liquid, depending on how bubbly I want the bath to be. This gives a lovely result and also makes it easier to figure out how much to use. Even with using this amount each time, the bottle has lasted me for ages because it was so big to begin with.

          I absolutely love the smell of this Sweet Candy bubble bath, and it really fits in with my love of sweet and foody fragrances. It is incredibly sweet smelling and surprised me to begin with as it was not what I had expected. Because of the candy cane pictures on the front I thought it might have a touch of peppermint, or smell like rock candy, but what this smell really reminds me of is cream soda pop. There is a strong vanilla base and it is lovely for a relaxing soak. Delicious when you want to have a nice indulgent bath, and it is a nice girly smell that I think kids would probably love as well.

          Although you get a great bubbly effect and the smell is delicious, the bubble bath is still fairly basic. I have found that it is there mainly for show and scent, as it does not have any positive effects upon my skin. I use other products for washing in the bath, but unlike some of my other bubble baths this one does not seem to give any extra moisture or leave my skin with a silky smooth feeling after settling in and soaking in the bath water. The bubbles are nice and fluffy, and the smell is gorgeous, but that doesn't last on the skin so you only really get the benefit of using this bubble bath while you're actually bathing, unfortunately there are no after effects.

          This is a great value bubble bath that does what you would expect from a basic product. I love the Sweet Candy scent and would buy this again if it ever re-appears in the brochure. A lovely bathing experience, but it's essential to follow up with body lotion to moisturise afterwards.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          This product could be better by adding a moisturiser

          A few months back I noticed that Avon had their bubble bath on offer so I decided to go ahead and order one since it was only going to work out at 99p for a 500ml bottle. I love my products to have a gorgeous smell and now that my daughter is getting a bit older she tends to want to smell and use my things which makes the fruiter the better an ideal quote. I opted for the sweet candy bubble bath.


          The bubble bath comes in a 500ml frosted clear bottle which has the main logo on the front. The logo advises this product is sweet candy and it has pictures of a few candy canes on to add to the look. The design is rather basic and if I had of visited a store to purchase it; it definitely wouldn't have been one to stand out.


          When you un-screw the top off the bottle there is a piece of silver foil covering the entrance just to make sure the bubble bath doesn't leak out during delivery. This foil can be easily removed from the bottle and you are then able to pour a very small amount of bubble bath under running water. I mentioned a small amount as the first time I used this product I poured a generous amount under the water and when I returned to the bath I couldn't see it for all the bubbles that had completely covered it. Literally a tiny dash of this will create a bath full of foamy bubbles.


          Due to a little going a long way this bubble bath will last for absolutely ages. I love how when the bubbles are ready you can still smell them just as strong as you could when smelling the bottle. This creates a nice relaxing bath with a gorgeous sweet scent.


          Now everything I have said above is what I like about the bubble bath but now I have to give a negative that I found within this product. After using this I feel that my skin is a bit dry. Most of the time I use a moisturiser after the bath but sometimes I just haven't got the time to do so and after using this skin feels dry and in need of some moisture. I have used the bottle now but I stopped using it on my daughter as I didn't feel it was suitable for delicate or sensitive skin as it was to drying and slightly irritating.


          Unfortunately I wouldn't buy this product again as I feel you can purchase store bought ones such as boots for the same price yet they are better. I love how a small amount creates a mass of bubbles and the scent is great but drying out just isn't something I would put up with just because I liked the rest.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The nicest bubble bath I've ever used - will suit everyone.

          I adore Avon in general, but especially their bubble bath. I always thought bubble baths were pretty much all the same, and that the cheapest supermarket brand would do as well as any other - but my opinion has changed since I started using Avon. I'm a fairly new Avon customer, I only started buying their products a couple of months ago, and the bubble bath was on my first order. It was on a fab 2 for 1 offer, which meant I got a 1l bottle in addition to the 500ml bottle - I chose the Vanilla Peach fragrance.

          It smells absolutely divine and fills the whole house with the scent, which smells very sweet and similar to Refreshers sweets! It's perfect to relax in after a long tiring day. The formula makes tons of bubbles is very creamy, and unlike other brands of a similar price. Where previously my skin has felt very dry and tight after a bath, it now feels soft and moisturised. It's very gentle and my young children have used it without any problems as there's no harsh chemicals to aggravate their skin, especially for my son who has mild excema. The fragrance also lingers on the skin for a long time after bathing.

          I can't really say much more about a bubble bath, but I'd say it's definitely worth trying! I will be buying more and trying the other scents as soon as my bottles run low. It was also a very pleasant ordering experience - I went through a local rep who brought my order to me a couple of weeks after placing it. I have since become a member on the Avon Shop website so I can order at other times too.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Avon's Bubble Bath lasts ages and is lovely, but it is too expensive for what it is!

          Occasionally when pay day has rolled around, I allow myself to indulge myself in a few extra bath time treats which, when I find myself low on money, cut back on. I classify purchasing from Avon a treat, as not only are a lot of products a bit expensive, I find it hard to only buy one or two things when I am browsing through the Avon book around my parents. During these treat times, I sometimes buy myself an Avon bubble bath.

          Avon Bubble Bath's come in two sizes, either 500ml for £4, or the 1ltr for £5. I think that this is very expensive for a bubble bath, especially because you can get bubble baths from your supermarket much cheaper than this which do the same thing, and also have lovely fruity smells. I actually refuse to pay this price, so therefore I only ever treat myself to an Avon bubble bath when it is in the "3 for £5" deal, as I am getting three 1ltr bubble bath bottles for the price of one, which is much better on my purse!

          There are many different varieties to choose from, from the fruity range, which comprises of such flavours as "Strawberries and Cream", "Tutti Fruty" and "Cherry", to the floral range, which has many more to choose from such as "Rose", and one of my favourites, "Lavender." The bottle is quite a funky ribbed bottle, which makes a change from the usual boring rounded bottles that you find in the supermarket. The label is also very bright and colourful, and the bright liquid inside the bottle also further emphasises the colourful nature of the whole product. I find that it helps to brighten up your bathroom a tad if you have a bottle or two on the side of your bath!

          I have tried many from this range now, and have found that the fragrance is quite strong in the bottle, and retains that slightly when the bubble bath is poured under running water in the bath. However, when the bubbles have formed and it is time to sink into the bubbles, the smell changes into a subtle one, which is a bit of a shame as I like a nice smelling bath product lingering on my skin during the bath, and after I have got out. I have found that the majority of the Avon Bubble Baths smell lovely, but I cannot smell it on my skin once I have dried off after my bath. I have just finished a bottle of "Strawberries and Cream", which smelt divine in the bottle, but again, the scent was very weak when it was mixed up in the water.

          Although £4 or £5 a bottle is very expensive, especially when compared to supermarket brands, the bubbles that form under running water are rather thick, and not as much liquid is needed in order to fill your bath with a desirable amount of bubbles. Because of this, I found that a bottle of Avon's bubble bath lasts for ages, so in some ways, it probably is worth the money you have paid for it. However, some people prefer more bubbles in the bath than others, so the length of use on this bottle will of course vary per person.

          I have very dry skin, so I do try to buy bath products that moisturise my skin whilst I am bathing. Sadly, Avon's bubble bath has no moisturising qualities. Essentially, this product is a liquid that creates bubbles, and carries a lovely, but weak scent, so anyone interested in bubble baths that also leave your skin feeling smooth when you have left the bath should probably avoid this. If you are after a highly effective moisturising bubble bath, I recommend "Soap & Glory's Calm One, Calm All" bubble bath for £5.11 in Boots.

          So in conclusion, Avon's Bubble Bath range contains a broad variety of fruity or floral scents, so there should be a scent for everyone here. The bubbles that are created once the liquid if poured under running water are large and thick, and should stick around for the duration of your bath, but sadly the scent is much weaker when it is in the bubbles then it is contained in the bottle. The scent does not stay on your skin after your bath, and there are no extra properties in the bubble bath, such as a moisturiser, to further enhance your skin. The price is a little too expensive for what it is, so I suggest giving another, cheaper bubble bath a go, but Avon's Bubble Bath range smells so lovely, with big long lasting bubbles that it is OK to splash out on a bottle of this for an occasional treat.

          A rather disappointing bubble bath from Avon

          I have never been a great lover of Avon products as in my experience they never live up to their claims. I also find it somewhat frustrating that their prices are constantly fluctuating and that new brochures are launched every few weeks, which in my opinion is a sheer waste of both paper and money. However, one of my work colleagues will insist on regularly leaving a brochure on my desk and naturally, I decided to browse through its' pages.

          THE PRODUCT

          As a result, a product that caught my eager eye a few months ago was their Lavender Bubble Bath. As someone who absolutely adores the fragrance of lavender, I love to be able to purchase products that capture this plant's beautiful aroma, so I ordered a 1 litre bottle and awaited its' arrival. I have to point out here that I had previously purchased this product approximately twenty years ago and had been extremely disappointed due to its' extremely artificial lavender fragrance.

          APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT

          The bubble bath is contained within a rigid plastic bottle, which is coloured purple to depict the lavender fragrance and in my opinion, is somewhat dull and old fashioned in appearance. If my memory serves me correctly, it does not really look any different to when I had previously purchased it with the only change that I could detect being that Avon now displays a rather poor effort of an image of a few sprays of lavender. The bottle is somewhat of a unique shape, which is rather difficult to describe, as on each side there are several large curves. The fairly good consistency bubble bath is easily dispensed by removing the screw off lid, but its' aroma isn't quite what I was expecting. Whilst I was hoping to witness a beautiful natural lavender fragrance, I was greeted with a pleasant aroma, but not as strong as I would have liked. I have to say that it was a big improvement on what I can recall from twenty years ago, but not as good as I would have expected. I really thought Avon would have improved considerably on the quality of this product, but it seems I was rather mistaken.

          USING THE BUBBLE BATH

          I dispensed a very small amount of the product under the running taps and within minutes I was able to witness plenty of swirling bubbles and a fairly pleasing fragrance. However, when I stepped into the bath water I was disappointed to discover that the bubbles were not beautifully fragranced as I would have liked, so I really did not feel I was taking a luxurious lavender bath. I always associate the aroma of lavender with peace, calm and relaxation, but unfortunately this product really did not achieve that effect for me and I am not sure if this was my imagination, but I am sure I could detect a hint of the plastic bottle when taking a good sniff of the bubble bath! Whilst the product provided me with a lavender aroma it was not strong enough for me, particularly as I like to witness a powerful natural smelling lavender fragrance.

          MY OPINION

          To be totally honest, I really was not expecting high quality from this product and whilst it did not cause any adverse effects to my skin, I will not be buying it again. I cannot say that it is not pleasantly fragranced because it is, but it is not the quality I would have hoped for. I did not find that the fragrance transferred to my skin, which is something I adore when using lavender toiletries. I have to say that I found the product bitterly disappointing. Although I have been quite critical of this product I would advise that it was very gentle on my skin and was not in the least bit drying and in fact, my skin felt quite soft and smooth. Having said that though, within approximately half an hour of bathing or showering I always apply a good quality body lotion or cream to ensure that my skin is always well moisturised.

          PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

          If you are interested in purchasing Avon's Lavender Bubble Bath, I would advise that it is available in both 500ml and 1 litre sized bottles with its' normal retail price being £4 and £5 respectively, which in my opinion is way too expensive. However, as you are no doubt aware the price of Avon products constantly yo-yo, so you will no doubt be able to purchase it at a much lower price at some point in time. As this bubble bath is contained within a plastic bottle it can be recycled once empty.

          MY RECOMMENDATION

          Would I recommend this product? Sorry, but the answer is no, as I think it is too expensive for what you actually receive. It was really disappointing and I expected a lot more in return for my hard earned cash. If you favour lavender fragranced products I would suggest you opt for those available in the Radox or Tesco range; both of which are of a high quality and I have previously reviewed. The great thing is that they will cost you a fraction of the price and provide you with a wonderful bathing experience! Consequently, Avon Lavender Bubble Bath receives only 3 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.

          I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.

            Disadvantages

            appealing bath mixture

            The Avon lady has been! Well she must have been round my mum's and lodged in the loft as a series of these had appeared in the bathroom cupboard. Spoilt for choice, I could not resists dabbling with the blueberry bubble bath. Blueberries are a great antioxidant when you eat them, so I wondered whether they would have the same effect on my skin when I bathed in them!

            The bubble baths can be bough for around four pounds a bottle and that seems a little dear to me, but I believe my mum managed to secure several in a bulk offer. The packaging is certainly appealing and alluring with rich colours and striking imagery to make you want to try it. The blueberry one was a succulent colour and was begging me to pour the purple coloured stuff into the warm running water.

            Upon pouring, I instantly caught a potent whiff of the mixture. The blueberries were escaping and getting into the nostrils with conviction. While it was not a wholly genuine blueberry scent, I could detect a summer fruit smell coming from the mixture and it did smell alive and fruity. So far so good then!

            The mixture produced a rather appealing amount of froth at first pour and I did not need to do much whisking with the hands to generate even more bubbles. The froth stayed frothy for a good twenty minutes before they started to fizzle away to nothing. As for the effects on my skin, not really an antioxidant, but the mixture did leave my skin feeling soft and nourished and the arms and chest smelt fruit just before bedtime. Would I rush to order some of this myself, perhaps if a pound or two were shaved off the price I would!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Lovely varieties!

            Now who doesnt enjoy a good soak? I certainly do and have tried a huge variety of bubbles, salts, oils and bombs for my bath.

            My friend became an Avon rep not so long ago and I have tried a few of their products.

            There bubble bath comes in two sizes 500ml for around £4 and 1litre for around £5. Although they often do have a variety of offers on such as buy one litre get 500ml free (this months offer - May 2010). Therefore enabling you to try another variety.

            These bubble baths come in the following varieties:

            Strawberries & Cream (a new one)
            Soft Pink
            Sensitive
            Lavender
            Secret Garden
            White Lily
            They also have special edition varieties occasionally too.

            The bubble baths come in a plastic bottle and cap.

            The instructions of use are to pour a cap under running water to create a luxurious bubble bath.

            VERDICT
            I have tried the Lavender and a limited edition variety called Sweet Candy. Both of which had a nice smell which wasnt too overpowering. On placing a capful under running water the bubbles begin to appear immediately and what is great is that, although this isnt the cheapest bubble bath on the market, it does last a long time.

            After coming out of the bath I noticed that my skin was soft and supple with a pleasant fragrance.

            I would recommend Avon bubble bath, especially if you enjoy plenty of bubbles and a relaxing bath.

            Avon can be ordered from a local representative (free delivery) or from avonshop.co.uk or by calling 0845 6014040

            A very basic but trustworthy bubble bath.

            For as long as I can remember,whenever my Gran or Mum came out of the bathroom it would smell lovely and there would be bubbles left in the bath.

            There was always one of these sitting in the bathroom,the Soft Pink version,and as I grew up I began to use it too.

            Avons bubble baths are unassuming and basic - the bottles are gigantic and pastel colored,they're pretty heavy and if you drop one on your foot it hurts quite a bit.

            The bubble bath itself is your average opaque,gloopy liquid - usually the same colour as the bottle or nearly the same.

            The scents are very soft,sensual and calming (or,at least the ones I've tried are) and the nicest is the Soft Pink.

            It makes an okay amount of bubbles and they last for a while,although not as long as I'd like it to last.

            Your skin will feel quite soft after a bath with Avon Bubble Bath,but not for long afterwards so it's best to moisturise as soon as you step out of the tub.

            Let's face it,it's been around for a long time,it must be doing SOMETHING right,huh?

              I Really Like This Bubble Bath But Think The Full Price Is A Bit Too Expensive

              I used to love Avon bubble bath and like the bottles because they are a really pretty scalloped shape, my mum said they've been this shape since she was young and she's in her 30's now so they must have kept this shape because it's so nice.

              They change them sometimes but the current line up is Lavender, Blueberry, Magnolia, Cherry Blossom, Soft Pink, Pearly Peach and a Sensitive one. There's a new one coming out for Christmas called Sweet Candy or something like that and it's got a Christmas Candy Cane on the bottle, I haven't tried it yet but my mates mum is a rep and she's just advance ordered me a bottle and I can't wait to try it because their Christmas editions are always wicked.

              At the minute we've got 4 bottles in the bathroom and even though they all smell different the bubble bath is the same for all of them so it's not worth me telling you about each of them individually like I usually do.

              You don't get loads of bubbles out of this bubble bath and have to use quite a bit and it comes out in dollops so it's easy to put more in than you meant to.

              I think these bubble baths are quite moisturizing and make the water feel softer than usual but not as much as more expensive bubble baths like Lush. My skin always feels nice and soft when I've had a bath in this and it's dead cleansing and doesn't leave me feeling sticky like the Avon Kids bubble bath does.

              I like all the smells in this range but my fave is the Pearly Peach one because it has a wicked peachy smell but isn't too fruity like a lot of peach smelling bath stuff. The sensitive one is nice as well and has a bit of a sweet cake smell but also is a bit like baby powder. None of the smells last for very long on my skin but they all leave me smelling fresh and clean and that's more important than the perfume.

              These bubble baths are ALWAYS on special offer at half price so that the 500ml bottle costs £2.00 and the 1 litre bottle costs £2.50 and that's good value for nice bubblt bath like this. I don't think it's worth the full prices of £4.00 and £5.00 though because it's not special enough and doesn't last very long once a bottle is opened.

              Disadvantages

              Amazing, recommended 100%

              I, as many people do, absolutely adore a big bubbly bath at the end of a busy day, I always have. I go through copious amounts of bubble bath, as I tend to go way overboard on the amount I pour underneath the hot tap. So when I saw a litre of bubble bath for £1.50, I was sold. I don't usually purchase things like this from Avon as I think it's just a lot easier (and usually cheaper) to buy them from Superdrug or Boots. But nevertheless the low price had me wanting it. I bought it in Pink Grapefruit. Not a scent I would usually go for because I'm not too keen on citrus smelling things.

              It comes in a HUGE plastic bottle. You'll be shocked at how much you're getting for your money. Pink Grapefruit is a bright pinky orange colour. The smell was surprisingly nice. I did buy it thinking that even if I didn't like the smell, it wouldn't be too unpleasant. But I really love it, it's not overly citrus, just really refreshing.

              So when using it for the first time, I slipped into my old habits of pouring loads into the bath. I used about one notch (you'll understand when you see the bottle), which is a lot. My bath was overflowing with bubbles. You really don't need a lot to get a bubbly bath. So the second time round I used about a quarter/half of that. That's more than enough for a good bath.

              So usually with cheaper bubble baths (I'm not calling Avon products cheap, I'm simply talking about the price which I purchased it), you're going to get 5 minutes worth of bubbles, not a lot of moisture and will end up with an empty bubbleless bath by the time you get round to anything. The bubbles in this bubble bath last SO long. I spend about an hour plus in the bath at a time, and the bubbles are still there when I'm emptying the bath. It's quite remarkable. It's extremely moisturising and your skin will feel lovely and soft afterwards and during the bath.

              Overall I would recommend this product to absolutely anyone and everyone. I'm looking forward to purchasing the other 'flavours', especially the white chocolate one! It's a really good buy if you get it in a sale. I personally wouldn't pay £5 for it, not because it's not worth it, but because I think that's a little bit much for bubble bath.
