I love a long soak in the bath. The only problem is I do not have one at home so always take advantage of my parent's when I am visiting them. The last time I was home I could not find any nice bubble bath to raid so nipped into town to get some. I wanted something that smelled nice, produced loads of bubbles but did not cost the earth so ended up with Boots Ingredients Mango and Orange Blossom Foam Bath.
Boots Ingredients is a range I often use as it is reasonably priced, great for every day use without being cheap and nasty. At £1.35 for a 500 ml bottle I thought this foam bath was very reasonably priced.
Looks wise its presented simply with its plain clear bottle but the picture of the slice of mango on the label looks very inviting. The liquid inside is a light tangerine orange. The label did not mention anything about animal testing , as far as i could see but on doing my research it seems Boots do not test use animals to test their products but chemical ingredients may have been tested on animals by the suppliers. So ita a very grey area how ethical this product is.
On removing the lid I am greeted with a very pleasant, sweet but tangy mango scent with undertones of orange. It smells very natural and almost good enough to drink. The foam bath has a very nice consistency like a thin gel. It pours easily but is not too runny so I don not lose any when pouring and don't need to use too much at all. A small blob was all that was needed to create a lovely bath full of big fluffy bubbles to relax and immerse myself in. Think Kylie Minouge in her video for "I Should be So Lucky". I was impressed with the bubbles , as they were highly scented with that luscious fruity scent and lasted throughout my bath. When I drained the water the bath was still filled with a residue of the bubbles.
I did not notice any difference in my skin after using the foam bath , however this was of little concern to me, as all I wanted was a nice smelling bubble bath that produced lost of bubbles and Boots Ingredients Mango and Orange Blossom Foam Bath ticked the boxes to a tee.
I used the foam bath twice so the bottle is still more than three quarters full. I am looking forward to more bubble baths the next time I am at my parents as long as my mum has not used it all!!!!
I love a long soak in the bath and although I must admit that I favour Lush products, I am currently buying cheaper bottled bubble baths to save money. The only reason I went for this particular brand was that there was a 'buy one get one half price' offer on the range, and as I was already buying a hair mask, this was a bargain!
The bath foam comes in a tall clear bottle with a screw top lid and a very basic label featuring a slice of mango and an orange blossom flower. Despite being simple, I think the bottle looks OK, and isn't so obviously cheap as some others can tend to look.
I chose the Mango and Orange blossom fragrance over the others as I like uplifting fruity scents. The bath foam has a great scent - it's strong and fruity and both the mango and orange fragrances both really stand out.
One of the best things about this product is that you can get away with using just a tiny amount for each bath. I'd guess that I've had about ten baths out of this so far and there is still over three quarters of the liquid left, which makes it very economical.
The bath foam creates a huge amount of frothy bubbles from a small amount of liquid, and as it foams up it fills the room with that lovely fruity fragrance.
One thing I have noticed is that the bubbles do not have the creamy feeling against the skin that you get with some of the more expensive products out there, but perhaps that would be a bit too much to ask for given how cheap this is.
Another thing I must mention is that the bubbles from this product are extremely long lasting, and often they will last right until the end of my bath - and I am one of those girls who likes to soak in the bath for ages!
After using this, I can't say I have noticed a huge difference in the feeling of my skin, however the fragrance does stay on my skin for quite a while - but it's fairly subtle.
A 500ml bottle of this bath foam costs £1.26 from Boots, which is very good value considering how many uses you will get from each bottle - remember only a small amount is needed, so if you just pour a little bit in each time, it should last absolutely ages!
Overall, I would recommend this bath foam, especially if you're looking for something that is economical. I must admit, there's no 'wow factor' with this - it's pretty much your standard bubble bath in many ways, but it gives long lasting bubbles, is cheap and only a little bit is needed per use, and I would certainly buy it again.
