      I've found my bathtime soulmate

      The Therapy range is clearly Boots's own competitor to the Radox brand, and they haven't tried to be particularly subtle about mimicking the packaging and product names. I saw this bath essence on the shelf next to my usual Radox and thought I would give it a try, as it looked very similar but was only £1.49 - only about two thirds the price of the Radox equivalent. I love rose fragrances and chose this mainly for the scent, but also because it describes itself as 'moisture rich' and 'hydrating', which I thought could only be good for my poor old dry-skinned body! It promises that 'skin is left feeling naturally restored, silky soft, smooth and delicately scented.'

      It comes in a 500ml bottle (quite a good size, made of clear plastic, which is a square shape crosswise and has a pink plastic screw-on cap. The product itself is an attractive pale pink colour, with a hint of pearlescent sheen. The writing on the bottle is all white and pink and it has an illustration of a rose flower on the front. It all looks very girly but very pretty and attractive.

      I poured this under warm running water as per the instructions and was very glad to see that it made a huge amount of foam very quickly. It bubbled up and kept making more and more froth, and the scent was just GORGEOUS... it smelt like a normal rose fragrance but with a sweet twist. I can't quite describe it but it had something a little bit different and totally irresistable. The bubbles felt very soft and moisturising on my skin and lasted a long time in the bath. The smell also lingered for the half hour or so I was in the bath and also fragranced the whole flat with perfumed steam!

      When I got out of the bath and dried off, my skin felt lovely and moisturised, not dry like it often does after a long bath (I like my baths really hot!), and it wasn't at all irritated or itchy. The lovely fragrance stayed on my skin all evening and I got a waft of it now and again.

      Since the first time I tried this product a couple of months ago, I've bought at least 3 more bottles as I get through so much. It seems to have cured me of trying out loads of different bubble baths as I never seem to get bored of this one - the smell is just perfect and my skin likes it too. I've also seen it on offer in Boots at 2 for £1.50 (as it is at the time of writing, 13 May 10) which is a really good deal as the normal price is £1.49 each. There are also shower gels in the same range which are included in the offer.
