      A bath in Badedas is better

      I have always loved Badedas since having my first daughter and been given a bottle, when I was pregnanty with my second daughter my sister was apparently planning on buying me a bottle of Badedas however couldn;t find any so she bought me the shower gel to try instead.

      She told me she bought the shower gel from Boots and I have seen it in there since, it is a lot cheaper than the bath gelee at £2.29 for a 200ml bottle.

      The product comes in a plastic dark green bottle much the same as the bath gelee but this one has a flip top dark green lid on it. The bottle displays the badedas name and the chestnut design as with the original and then it tells you that this is a shower gel, shampoo and conditioner which I was pretty dubious about. On the back og the bottle you are given a list of ingredients and a couple of warnings such as to keep away from the eyes.

      On opening the bottle the smell is delicious just the same as the bath gelee, it is spicy and smells gorgeous although not quite as string as the gelee. The product is nice and thick making it feels really luxurious but it just doesn't give you the same feeling of contentment that you get when you have had a bath in the gelee and it certainly doesn't give any healing aids after birth. The product lathers really well and it doesn;t take much at all to give a really good wash, after using my skin felt nice and soft and also smelt lovely as the smell lingered really well.

      I tried it twice as a shampoo once on it's own and once with an extra conditioner and I wouldn't again as it left my hair tangled although it was shiny, since the smell is so unique you can't really put a seperate conditioner on as the smells hardly complimented each other so I will simply stick to it as a shower gel.
      I liked this product mainly for the smell as I simply love it however there are much cheaper shower gels that are just as good. I wouldn't recommend this as a shampoo and conditioner but if I saw it at a decent price I would use it as a shower gel.

      well worth buying

      This product is great, I bought it because I love the normal Badedas bath foam. It has a lovely aroma that really lasts and lasts. I run a cafe and come home smelling of every food imaginable (which combined is not a good smell) this product really cuts through it.
      I actually use this in the bath rather than a shower and I also use it to wash my mid length hair, surprisingly it's actually a good shampoo and again the scent really hangs around.
      The scent of this gel is something worth mentioning again, it's a not just persistent, but it's a good quality, satisfying aroma that smells like cross between a high end perfume/aftershave.
      You don't need to use much and its seems to be kind to sensitive skin too, my husband has sensitive skin, but has no problem using this gel.
      The only down side is its not readily available, the bath foam is not stocked in most stores, I think due to comparatively high price, but this gel is just a bit more difficult to track down, so far though I know Superdrug's stock it !

      I love it! 5 + stars from me and my flatmate that keeps robbing it!

      I very often buy toiletries whether I need them or not as I love trying out products that I haven't before. Recently having noticing that I had lots and lots of points on my Boots advantage card and having now bought most of the Christmas presents for people I was planning to I decided to treat myself to a few more, well premium items really. I'm a one for purchasing toiletries that are branded but cheap and on offer more often than not. This wasn't on offer and actually is a little more expensive than I usually pay for such an item but at first sniff I fell for it hook line and sinker and couldn't wait to get it home and try it out!

      The Packaging:

      This is available to buy in different sizes and cos I hadn't tried it before I opted to purchase the smallest size on offer which is 200ml (as far as i am aware of!). It comes in a dark green plastic bottle with an integrated flip-top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole and it has small indentations to the sides of the bottle for ease of handling. On the front of the bottle there is a two tone green label and on the front of the bottle and in gold and white writing we are told that it is Badedas, 3 in 1 Revitalising Shower Gel, Shampoo & conditioner 'Made with extract of horse chestnut' and that it is 200ml in size of course. On the back label on the bottle we are told a bit more about the product, ingredients are listed as are cautions, again the size is stated and contact details for H&BC UK Ltd are listed (the manufacturer of the product). This is a very unisex looking bottle, in fact I guess it looks a little more masculine than I would usually like really however this is unisex in fragrance and I like the sleek design of the bottle very much indeed though this has no hanger to it.

      A Bit About The Product According To The information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle:

      Revitalising shower gel combines extract of horse chestnut and the distinctive Badedas fragrance, to gently cleanse and condition your hair and body, leaving you feeling totally refreshed and revitalised. Immerse yourself in the rich, luxurious magic of Badedas.

      The Gel:

      Well like I say the thing that initially entrapped me into its purchase was the wonderful aroma that this possesses. It really is a fresh and clean sort of woodland fresh smell really. Crisp and highly fragrant it's a warm smell that really does whiff but I absolutely love it!

      You can of course use this dark green thick transparent gel as a body wash and as a hair wash and because I love the fragrance so much I do use this for both and feel this is a great multi-tasking product so gym bunnies and people going away listen up this could be a great product for you!

      As a body wash you only need a small blob. It's easy to squeeze out of the bottle and is a stiffish consistency so you really can control the amount you want/need very well. It lathers up into a rich, white thick lather fast and feels smoothing and refreshing as you use it. It's easy to shave with this if you want to ladies and the aroma really is very relaxing indeed and it rinses off very well. When used as a body wash (in the bath or shower) the fragrance not only lingers on your skin for hours afterwards helping you to feel fresher for longer but also in your bathroom (here's a top tip actually, leave the lid ajar slightly on the bottle and it acts as a gorgeous air freshener without damaging the gel at all!). I love the way I feel really clean after using it, love the fact other people can smell this on me and my skin feels really revitalised and smooth.

      Normally I wouldn't use a two in one type of product on my hair. I'm very much of the belief that one product isn't suitable for skin and hair but like I say I love the fragrance of this so much I do use it on my hair now and again. Once again it lathers up richly on wet/damp hair and rinses out with ease. Although when I use it on my hair it feels really tough and knotty when I comb it through, once I get past that phase my hair is left smelling beautifully fragrant, strong and soft and yep it is actually is a brilliant shampoo though could do with being a tad more conditioning. In my humble opinion It does make my hair feel soft, supple and clean once dried and it has no adverse affects on my hair at all and I am as really pleased with it as it makes my hair look really glossy and shiny. Of course if you want to you could use this as a shampoo and then use a blob of conditioner or spray in some leave in if you'd like to afterwards, but I don't feel the need once I comb my hair through after using it.

      This is, in my opinion a lovely luxurious fell good product to use and I adore it. At about £3.00 a bottle (in all good supermarkets and chemists), to me this is an excellent buy all round and my new favourite, must have product!

        His shower gel sometimes snaffled by her!!

        This is his shower gel of choice, although I must confess to sometimes using it too, it has such a lovely smell and leaves your skin feeling balmy and smooth. Unfortunately it is not so easy to find nowadays; the trademark green package has all but disappeared from the supermarket and Supadrug's of this world. You can still obtain it via the internet or by direct order from a pharmacy, but it will now cost you some £2.36 per 200ml container. I really hope it makes a return to the mainstream soon.

        A lightly scented and refreshing shower gel, this product also works well for frequent hair washing for normal to greasy hair leaving it soft and bouncy. The conditioner is hardly noticeable to me certainly not leaving any sticky residue or frizzy bits. Although the package trumpets that it contains an extract of horse chestnut its not altogether clear what function this performs, since the main component is sodium laureth sulphate which is no more than a simple detergent.

        Manufactured under the Sarah Lee Brand, you will probably be much more familiar with the ghastly chocolatey foamy frozen gateau range found in the freezer section in your local supermarket. Perhaps the shower gel was developed to help clear up the mess and cleanse the skin of spots from unhealthy eating but I digress.....

        Competitively priced against other leading brands it always appears with significant hues of green in the packaging so is easy to spot on the shelves, if it is stocked. The liquid inside the container (which has an effective easy clip shut seal) is also light green in colour rippled through with a lighter creamy colour. The gel feels nice to the touch, and the soap foams to a nice rich texture. The scent is unique to this range, and unless told I would not know that it is horse chestnut. I suspect that more likely it is the parfum which is listed in the constituents which would no doubt be much easier to effectively replicate and mass produce than a biological extract.

        Gentle on your body, in my opinion this product is much better than the bath soak version which is more expensive and not nearly so convenient to use. I honestly can recommend it.

          I love using Badedas Shower Gel. I have been using it for over ten years. I was first given a bottle for a gift from my brother -in -law who lived in the Bahamas. From then on I have bought bottles of the shower gel everytime I visited the county or I would ask some one to buy me several bottle when they went to visit. The problem now is that I have run out of the shower gel and I'm unable to purchase anymore becasue my brother-in-law moved to the USA. If you can help me find Badedas Shower Del please Email me at JV104@aol.com. Thank you.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I find it strange when huge corporations are involved in all manner of products. Let me explain. If someone mentioned Sara Lee, the first thing that would spring to mind for me, and I'm sure for most people, is cakes. And to be fair, the Sara Lee Corporation - to give it it's Sunday name - does make 'exceedingly good cakes'....wait, I think someone else does that. OK suffice to say, they make cakes. In addition, they are responsible for a range of products, from ladies undergarmentthingies to sausages, and shoe polish to coffee. They also manufacture a vast array of body-care products which brings us nicely to the subject of this review - BADEDAS BODY WASH. If you've got nothing better to do, you can check out the Sara Lee website to see the list for yourself, you might as well as there's not much point visiting the badedas website....unless you are fluent in Italian. Not that it's a real problem as it looked like a pile of nonsense anyway! I'm a touch cynical when it comes to body-care products, I just don't see what the fuss is about. After all, what exactly is body wash? - That's right, it's soap. In 'essence' it's a de-greaser, a detergent. In fact, an online dictionary gives this definition of soap: "a cleansing and emulsifying agent made usually by action of alkali on fat or fatty acids and consisting essentially of sodium or potassium salts of such acids." Of course, stick in a couple of 'essential oils' and 'parfums', give it a pretentious name and a fancy box, and you can increase the profit margin exponentially. I found the following little nugget from a website which sells badedas. "Badedas Body Wash is a rich creamy cleanser suitable for use in both the bath and shower. With natural moisturizers and extract of Horse Chestnut, Badedas Body Wash gently cleanses skin leaving it clean and moisturized." Th
            at'll do for me, then. So if I'm such a miserable old cynic, why, in the name of all that's delicately fragranced, would I use such a product? - Easy peasy, because I can. Mrs p isn't nearly as misanthropic as I am and buys all this sort of gear. Also, as we don't shower together nearly often enough these days, I can use her good stuff unmolested when she's off to the shops. So I did. • The Package • The bottle is a squat, flattish, white affair with a sky-blue, rounded top. It has images of a clouds with a picture of a chestnut and the brand logo. Obviously, it has the ingredient list and the usual blurb. The bottle is quite wide and doesn't exactly fit snugly into the palm of your hand although, as the lid lid pops open to reveal a sort of loop-type handle, I suppose that doesn't matter too much. • The Inside Story • It definitely smells like horse-chestnut becau...wait a minute, what the sneck does horse-chestnut smell like? How many people have sniffed a conker? Cyinicism aside, it does have a very pleasant aroma - fruity and nutty. There are hints of lime in the aroma and something similar to almonds. Looking at the list of ingredients I'm not surprised as it contains, amongst other things, citric acid and nut oils. Excuse me if this account is a bit erratic as I'm writing from memory - have you ever tried to take a keyboard into the shower? It's rather thick and creamy and a strange, greeny-bluey colour. It doesn't lather up as well as an ordinary bar of soap but it gets you clean and you can't ask for more than that, can you? (yes, I know you can...it was rhetorical). • The Verdict • At £2.49 for a 200ml bottle, this isn't the most expensive 'soap' on the market, but it's not the cheapest either. It's nice enough and it gets you clean but it's a bit too greasy f
            or my liking. I prefer my soap to be foamy and...erm..soapy, not like some sweet smelling, axle-grease. It did leave me feeling refreshed and smelling like a $100 whore, but I think I'll just stick to a bar of carbolic, thanks all the same. On her return from the shops, Mrs p's verdict was a little more positive than mine. She said my skin was smooth and I smelled nice enough to kiss all over.....but then, she always says that. Would I use it again?- Only if there's no 'real' soap. Thanks for reading ©proxam2003

              What do Bimbo bread (if you’ve been on holiday to Spain, you’ll no doubt have seen it), Berlei bras and Badedas all have in common? Sara Lee. The gateaux woman. Or rather, the parent company of these brands, and many others. Wonderbra, Sanex, Matey, plus more than 300 others brands. They can all shelter under the rather large Sara Lee umbrella. I didn’t know this until a few minutes ago. I don’t generally care enough to read labels that closely. But, I wanted so background for my op on Badedas, so I chortled along to their website, www.badedas.com Only one problem – it’s all in Italian. A little skim through and I understand….next to nothing. Handily, though, there’s a Sara Lee logo at the bottom. A look at www.saralee.com sorts me out. The good news is that they do indeed make Badedas, the bad news that the site I’d just been to is the only one for the stuff, and it doesn’t come with an English translation. Oh well, time to tell you what I think rather than what the company want you to think. It might be the same in your family too. When I was younger it was expected that I would buy presents for Christmas and birthdays for my close relatives. However it was also realized that at that age I wouldn’t always know what to buy, and so subtle hints were dropped at appropriate times. Over the years, these hints became law in a way. Every Christmas, for example, someone would get Granddad M&S shaving foam. For Nanna it would be Yardley English Lavender, or 4711 if we’d just been over to Germany. When it came to my mother, Badedas always was, and still is, a good choice. Badedas is yum. It’s like chocolate – a luxury thingumie you can enjoy every day should you choose to. Growing up it was one of those special “grown up products” – it would sit in the bathroom, but that didn’t mean I was to use it without permission. On special occasions though, th
              e bath would be filled with stuff for a special treat, even for me. Nowadays I’m older. I’m living on my own and I’m buying my own smelly stuff, but despite this, I don’t use Badedas every day. I’d like to, but it’s still firmly stuck in my mind as being a treat to be saved and savoured and not over used. Recently though, last weekend in fact, I was lying on my bed flicking through a free catalog that had come through my door. It was from dm, the local equivalent of Superdrug, and featured their special offers for Christmas. Badedas was in there, and for less than a couple of quid for a huge 750ml bottle (which, incidentally, costs an incredible £9.99 back in the UK, and up to $39.95 in the USA) I found it hard to resist. Original, tradition Badedas has a fabulous horse-chestnut scent, which makes it wonderful to use in autumn and winter especially. I bought some the other day and spent my trip home on the tram sniffing the bottle. Coming to work on the train this morning, I kept sniffing my hands, still scented from my shower. It comes in various forms – Crème bath, Bath oil, Shower gel and, the one I usually use, Bath gelee. Each has its own specifically designed use, but you don’t need to stick to these. The bath gelee, for example, can be used in showers, and even to wash your hair with. All the products (except, naturally enough, the oil) lather well and produces gorgeous silky bubbles that stay forever in your shower or bath, making the bathroom smell nice for hours. Is there a downside? Well the packaging, especially on the European release, isn’t really much to write home about. Plain, dark, woody green. Sometime with a picture of a conker on. Sometimes not. The smaller bottles look quite nice but then they’re also more expensive per 100ml. Maybe one of those times you should buy the nicely packaged version first, and then spent the rest of your days decanting to make your bathr
              oom shelf look nice. Incidentally, over here you can also buy refills for the bottles, about 20 cents less than the standard format. Each of the products in the range comes in different sizes and formats, but not all shops stock all variations. On their website (www.wellbeing.com) Boots offer: Badedas Elegance Bad (Green, silky sponge bag, with a puff, a small gelee and a small shower gel) = £6.99 Bath Gelee – 300ml or 750 ml = £4.99/£9.99 Badedas Aura Foaming Bath Oil – 300ml = £4.99 Badedas Spirit Crème Bath – 300ml = £4.99 Badedas Body Wash– 200ml = £2.49 Badedas Revitalizing Shower Gel – 200ml = £2.49 The Verdict? + Lovely smell + Cleanses, smoothes & moisturizes your skin + Readily available + Makes you feel special (sic) + Cheap (when you’re over here :p ) + Gift sets make a great present How could you refuse?

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Badedas: A luxurious bath gel made by an international company. Sara Lee is probably best known for their wonderful desserts like: gateau’s and their delicious Danish pastry bars! But you may be surprised to learn they are a worldwide company who originated in Canada in 1939, when a man called Nathan Cummings founded the company. It grew from strength to strength and today it employs some 141,500 people with an annual turn over in excess of twenty BILLION dollars in over 50 countries. These days Sara Lee is famous for more than just cakes and desserts, indeed they now own such companies as: Ambi-pur (Air fresheners); Sanex (Body care range); Playtex – (women’s under garments) {how else could I say it?}; pickwick teas; and of course Badedas bath gels and oils etc. Badedas bath gel is quite expensive. A bottle of just 300ml can set you back some £4.99; this works out (so I’m informed) to around £1.66 for each 100ml! Aroma ^^^^ Badedas is luxurious enough in the smell department, a sort of woody pine effect smell (not unlike the original Radox which Sara Lee also own). It is a clean fresh smell that stays with you even after you’ve bathed! Liquid and foaming ^^^^^^^^^^^^ It is a really thick liquid, which you don’t need that much of in your bath. However, if you r the sort of person who like to simply put a blob under the tap and leave it until it full, then think again with this! You will need plenty of wrist action with this gel, oh yes it needs to be frothed! [For this insert hand into bath and splash about]. If left to ‘foam’ by itself you WILL be disappointed. However if played about enough-the foam comes up and the smell is released even er into the nostrils! Ingredients ^^^^^^^ The writing on the packaging was lost at time of writing so ingredients were lost also (if they were on it of course). No ingredients were found on
                the bottle, and what writing there is – is so small you need some binoculars! Is it Hypoallergenic? ^^^^^^^^^^^^ If you have sensitive skin, or skin problems then I wouldn’t recommend this product. I have skin graft sites, which are a little red still, and when I used this gel they flared up! My wife is also ‘delicate’ to certain things, and this one also made her itch! However, my mother has used it with no problems at all! Overall ^^^^ Providing you are not skin sensitive then I would recommend this, as it is quite luxurious. However at an average hour pay, it may be wise to get it as a Christmas present! That said it does last longer as you don’t use so much. And the bottle has a small hole to push the thick liquid through, so you need to squeeze the bottle in order to obtain some gel in your bath. So all in all I would recommend if you haven’t got any irritation of the skin!

                  Disadvantages

                  The first time I came across badedas was when a friend of mine bought it for me as a treat after I had had my first baby. At the time she gave it to me I secretly thought it was a slightly odd present - I mean bubble bath is so not cool....but as soon as I used it I understood why she'd given me it. It's based around horse chestnut extract, and is *very* green - so green it changes the colour of the water! Not very promising sounding so far, but it really is nice stuff! As bubble baths go, this is one of the best, if not possibly *the* best I've used.......the smell is great - unlike any other and it's actually quite a pleasant experience luxuriating in water that has turned a deepish green......reminds me of oceans or something ;-) As for the *bubbles* - you'll get masses of lovely ones from just a little bit, which is just as well as it's expensive! Try sinking into a bath run with it in at a time when you aren't rushing off to do something, and relax and enjoy the experience. And yes, I've bought my own since then! It can sometimes be found reduced in the Christmas sales.....but if that's too long for you to wait, go out and buy a little bottle and see for yourself!

                  Having tried most shower and bath gels, creams etc. some good, some not so. I always go back to my old favourite Badedas. OK it's not cheap, not in fashion at the moment and the packaging is not very inspiring. The smell is of Horse Chestnut extract (not that I have noticed that conkers have a smell) and is very refreshing. Although quite expensive, it is so economical it lasts for ages, masses of foam from a little blob, so in the end you are getting a luxury product relatively cheap. The shower/ bath gel is my favourite, they also do a creme bath for those who need a bit extra moisturising. Even hubby uses it, and he's a carbolic soap and water man.
