Avon Bubble Bath
Advantages: Nice smell, many varieties to choose from, bubbles big and last long.
Disadvantages: No moisturising properties, smell doesn't stay on skin, smell is very faint, very expensive.
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.
Summary: Avon's Bubble Bath lasts ages and is lovely, but it is too expensive for what it is!
