Thanks to dooyoo upgrading "bath & shower", it's starting to look like it's going to be a very clean month... Here I am just having indulged in my second bath in two nights, as I continue my martyr-esque working through my stash of bathroom goodies to review!
Tonight, it was Avon Bubble Bath "Sensitive". I've had this Avon bubble bath for quite a while, I bought it when a friend started out as an Avon Rep and I wanted to support her but didn't really want to spend much. It was a no-risk purchase, simply because I have used it on and off for 30 years plus! During my childhood my mum was an Avon rep, and their "own brand" bubble baths were an ever-present in the bathroom. The variety I'm reviewing is the "Sensitive" - in a white bottle with the iconic bubble ridged design.
The liquid is between clear and white, and quite thick - it doesn't run freely out of the bottle, so you need to be careful when adding it to your bath - I added around a cap full.
The smell of this "Sensitive" bubble bath is very subtle and neutral - it reminds me of Johnson's baby bath, which I consider a lovely bathtime smell. I soaked in the bath for about 20 minutes tonight, and the disappointing part was that the bubbles didn't last very well. I didn't use any soap in the bath, but the bubbles were already well on their way out after about 15 minutes. Maybe I need to use more of it per bath, but there was a mountain of bubbles at the start so any more would have been too much I think.
After my bath the feint fragrance is definitely still lingering on my skin, which is lovely, and although I haven't used moisturiser on my skin, it doesn't feel like it needs it. I can't vouch for the "sensitive" side to the product as I don't really suffer from skin that's sensitive to irritation.
I haven't had an Avon catalogue for a while but on the website this product is currently selling at £4.00 for 500ml, so it's not cheap (they have a BOGOF offer on at the moment), and although it's nice to be able to enjoy this bath tonight, it's not something I will be seeking to replace especially. I don't think it's "£4.00-good".
Ah well, plenty more bubble baths in the cupboard!
AVON SENSITIVE BUBBLE BATH
I recently purchased 3 bottles of bubble bath from avon as they were on offer, and this was one of the bottles that I choose, The reason I choose this one is I thought not only would i be able to use it but it would also be good for my 2 older children to use whilst in the bath,
My daughter gets irriatated when I change products and every now and then has a flair up of exema on her back and belly.
This bubble bath is available to purchase from your avon rep, and from avon online, It is available to buy as a 500ml bottle or 1litre bottle and costs £4/£5 a bottle, I got mine on offer and had 3 bottles (500ml) for £5.00.
The bottle is plastic with ridges on both sides and has blue writing and a picture of a blue feather, the lid is a screw lid and the opening of the bottle has a foil covering, which you can easily remove or pierce to open.
The bubble bath is a milky white colour and has quite a runny consistency to it.
***MY OVERALL OPINION***
I have to say that im quite disappointed with this bubble bath and will not be purchasing it again, even if on offer.
As i have mentioned above the consistency of this bubble bath is quite runny and just pours out of the bottle even when being careful, I was also disappointed with the amount of bubbles this made, Their was hardly any, Even when using more of the product it didn't seem to make much, and what bubbles it did make quickly went.
Im glad i purchased this on offer as i wouldn't of been very happy had I of paid full price, What i did like about it was that it was suitable for my children and didn't irritate my daughters skin, but still it's not something i will buy again.
Because this product was ok for my kids skin I will award it 2 stars,
This is a review of the biggest bottle of bubble bath I ever had. 1000ml or 1 litre in a gigantic bottle was part of a set of smellies received from the MIL this Christmas. The product in review is Avon Sensitive Bubble Bath.
I do like to take a bubble bath almost every night as a wind down whilst I read my book so this was a very well thought out gift. To get the bottle started you have to unscrew the cap and puncture a metallic paper seal which is pretty strong and easier said than done. I ended up having to get a pair of scissors to stab it with. Obviously you just pour a capfull into a running bath and watch the bath start to foam.
As you can see from the picture it is a fairly plain picture, with a feather on the bottle to indicate sensitive skin. It is made of a frosted plastic coloured bottle which matches the colour of the contents. What I liked about this bottle was the way it has been made ridged down the length of the body. This makes it easy to grasp, even with wet hands and so less likely to slip out of your hold. I just realised how those last two sentences sound. Maybe I should go into writing erotic fiction! I'm going to leave that in for fun.
In this case the size was a bit of a problem, in that I was just tempted to use more product in the bath. You don't need to do this and frankly the more you use, the more bubbles and foam you get which can get a bit silly. The fact that I have used an entire litre before the month is even out shows you that I have thrown far too much of this in each bath. You can get this bottle in 500ml too for slightly less money but I will go into that in the price section below.
As the main feature on this bottle is that it is suitable for sensitive skin, I guess it makes sense to comment on this. I don't normally have any problem with products so I don't need to particularly go for sensitive products but they can be kinder on your skin and this one seems fine to me. Clearly everyone is different and there will be people it doesn't suit. From a looks perspective it is a clear milky colour so no added colour ingredients as such (eg to make it bright pink) and the smell is light and slightly sweet but not offensive. There are a list of ingredients on the back so you can check if you know you are allergic to a particular ingredient.
The bubbles lasted way longer than my intended bath did so you do get 'bubble boots' when you step out of the bath but these are quite harmless and can be a bit of a giggle if you're a bit silly like me. The product itself is a great buy for £3 and should last a lot longer than I managed. The bottle is big and does take up a lot of room and so may not be for everyone.
A litre of this normally retails at £5 but is currently selling on the Avon website for £3 so it is really quite cheap at the moment. Perhaps best to time your purchase in line with a sale to get the best value for money. I mentioned above that you can buy it in a smaller size, 500ml which you can get on Amazon for £2.75 (plus shipping) or for £4 currently on the Avon website! No prizes for those who can work out the best deal here...
A bottle of bubble bath always makes a nice gift and shows someone you care about them. Whilst this bottle could not be placed in a 'luxurious' category, it fits in a practical and kind to your skin genre so would suit most people I think. I enjoyed using mine and would be happy to receive a repeat bottle but don't usually buy avon myself so would not seek it out. I have a big load of Radox bubbles to start on next so fear not, the nightly bubble bath reading slot continues!
I used to be a sufferer of eczema so I am always very wary of using scented products on my skin when bathing, even if they do say "sensitive" as even those ones tend to have some additional scented chemical to make them smell nice which usually completely defeats the object :(
Similarly, I have a 2 year old and since birth I am always cautious about what products I use to moisturise her skin and in the bath etc. My mum is an Avon representative and she always seemed to have a stock of this bubble bath at her house, so one day when we stayed over I decided to give it a try...although wary as my skin automatically feels itchy if I use something which is irritable. I was more than elated to find it gives a lot of bubbles after pouring very little in the bath so the bottle actually lasts ages and it did not irritate my skin! My daughter also used it and loves playing with the bubbles which of course she splashes everywhere and it has not irritated her eyes or anything! I usually spend about £2 on a 1 litre bottle (grabbing loads when they are on a good offer in the brochure!) and it is literally the only bubble bath in our entire house! I'd advise it to anyone, as I am not risking switching to another bubble bath anytime soon as I think we are both accustomed to this one now!
I've only bought Avon Sensitive Bubble Bath on one occasion as the "sensitive" part of the name jumped out at me because I thought it would be suitable for my sensitive skin. It comes in a bottle which contains either 500ml or 1L of the bubble bath - and I opted for the 500ml bottle as it was just a trial and it cost me £1.99. I thought that £1.99 was a decent price and it was a big enough bottle for it to last a little while. I was actually surprised at how plain and boring the bottle actually looked when it came - but, having said that, I really don't think it's that important what the packaging looks like. I also didn't like the fact that it was a screw top because I find that screw tops are really hard to remove when my hands are wet.
When I have used Avon Sensitive Bubble Bath I have to say that I have had to use so much of the solution to get the amount of bubbles wanted. The bubble bath solution is very thin and runny and it just doesn't look very substantial or luxurious. There are some bubbles when I first get in, but the bubbles really don't last very long and by the end of the bath all of the bubbles have pretty much disappeared. I think also, that because of the amount of the mixture that I have to put in the bath in the first place, the water feels quite heavy and too soapy - and it's not a feeling like I very much like. While the bubble bath is not particularly fragranced, it does have a soapy smell to it, but because of the amount of the mixture I have to put in, it just smells too soapy and I smell like I've bathed in a bath of soap.
My skin does not react to using this product and so I think it is okay for sensitive skin - but it does make my skin feel really dry when I get out the bath.
Overall, I have to say that I really don't rate this product at all and I won't be buying it again.
I love to have a long soak in the bath after an exhausting day and I find that when it comes to bubble bath, Avon has quite an extensive range. My mum is always buying things from them and is forever presenting me with bottles of bubble bath, mainly because she knows how much I get through! Today I will be reviewing Avon Sensitive Bubble Bath.
The bubble bath comes in a 500ml bottle though I think there is a 1 litre bottle also available. The packaging is simple with the actual bubble bath being a sort of white/milky colour. There is a slight fragrance to it but as it is sensitive this smell isn't perfumed, fruity or floral, rather it smells clean and fresh. The bubble bath is easy to poar and is creamy in texture, on mixing with the hot water I was disapointed in that it didn't seem to produce many, if any bubbles! It does make your bath water lovely and "soft", very soothing and relaxing to bathe in.
I think that this bubble bath is great if you don't want anything highly fragranced or if you are allergic or irritated by perfume. On the hole it is an ok bubble bath, I didn't dislike it but I think it can hardly be called a "bubble bath" when it doesn't produce any bubbles! I've looked onlike and discovered that a 500ml bottle of this will set you back around £4.00 and I honestly don't think it's worth that much money. It's an inoffensive bubble bath that will suit both males and females, an ok product but not bubbly or foamy in the slighest.
I have written quite a few reviews of late about the Avon bubble baths. This is simply because not only do I have a lot of baths and prefer them to showering but because the range of bubble baths Avon have available have recently been on offer to buy at half the original price and I thought I would have a stock up!
I do suffer with sensitive and dry skin from time to time, particularly in this cooler weather and that was behind my thinking process when I purchased this one because there were other far fancier bubble baths on offer such as pina colada!
Well this is available in a 500ml and 1L size and both bottles are the same in appearance apart from the size of them of course. The bottles are frosted white bottles with a white screw on/off plastic cap to the top of it. On the front of the bottle in turquoise writing we are told that it is Avon Sensitive Bubble Bath and the size is stated. On the back of the bottle there isn't much information given really apart from ingredients and contact details for Avon. It's a nice enough if not a bit bulky looking bottle though its as informative as it needs to be and unisex in its appearance.
Well I find with this one that I don't need very much of it at all to get soft enough water and a few bubbles. It's a transparent, runny liquid with a gentle soft sort of soapy aroma to it and it isn't too highly fragranced at all.
Bathing in this is fine enough though its nothing special. Like I have just mentioned it does soften the water a bit without said water being greasy and it does give off some soft bubbles and it certainly doesn't upset my sensitive skin at all either when bathing in it or after.
When I get out of the bath and dry myself I feel refreshed and smooth and thats it really. There isn't much scent left on my skin however sadly.
I'm happy enough with this bubble bath though feel it could be a bit more bubbly and luxurious when in use and for me this is more of a day to day type of bath product than anything luxurious I'd be excited at the thought of using!
This is only available from Avon and usually costs £4.00 for the 500ml size and £5.00 for the 1L size though at the time of writing this review this is on offer in both sizes for £2.00 for the 500ml size and £2.50 for the 1L.
**** Introduction ****
I have recently been suffering badly with very dry skin, which has become irritated by everything that it comes in contact with.
The main thing that has been effected in my relaxing bubble baths, as many of the foam bubble baths have been making me itch and flaring up my skin.
I decided to try this sensitive bubble bath that is produced by avon.
**** The Product ****
While flicking through the avon catalogue I found this bubble bath and thought it was worth a try, as nothing else seemed to work.
I have to be pefectly honest the packaging a bottle design did not appeal to me as it was very basic and boring, but as the bottle was on offer for £1.00, I had nothing to lose.
The bubble bath itself is very thin in consotancy and clear in colour, so this does not turn the bath water a different colour, which is the one thing I really like when I have a hot bath.
Yes it did give out some nice bubbles, but these did not last long and soon as I hit the water they had all but disappeared, so that is another bad side for me.
The bonus of this product being that it didnt irritate my skin at all, so it works wonders for sensitive skin but as far as I am concerned I may as well not both having bubble bath as I didn't get bubbles.
**** My Views ****
for £1.00 I got a massive amount in a 500ml bottle, so it was gott value although I was not impressed by its peformance.
I would recomend this for sensitive skined people but you will not get massive amounts of bubbles to relax in. If you just wanted a quick dip I am sure it would be fine.
We bought this a few weeks ago when you could purchase a 1 litre bottle of bubble bath from Avon for just £2.50, the bubble bath is also available in a 500ml size. Usually the litre sized bottle retails at £5 but this is quite pricey and the bubble bath can usually be found on some sort of offer every couple of brochures. There are a number of other bubble baths in the range including secret garden and white lily.
So the bubble bath comes in a bottle exactly the same as the one shown in the picture, it is about 30cm tall and about 15cm wide so it is quite a big bottle! There are grooves down the bottle which I have actually found quite useful to see how much I have been using.
So to use you simply pour under warm running water. To begin with I used quite a lot of the bubble bath because I thought it wouldnt be as good quality as my usual radox brand. However, now I know I need only a squeeze and for each groove on the bottle I can get about 4 baths which in my opinion is fab value for money meaning that from a bottle this size I can get at least 40 baths.
A drop of the bubble bath results in a number of bubbles which are soft, fluffy and white. I have sensitive skin and often find that bubble baths irritate my skin. I am pleased to say that this has not irritated my skin at all and if anything since using this my skin has felt calmer and soothed. Therefore if you or your children have sensitive skin, I would recommend this no end because it really helps.
Overall I think this is a fab product and I will buy it again. However, I will wait for an offer to be on as it can often be found for half of the retail price. It is a good quality product which really soothes the skin.
