I must tell you about this wonderful bath cream I have just recently discovered - Calvin Klein Euphoria Sensual Bath and Shower Cream, to be exact. It wasn't cheap at £21.95 for a 200ml bottle but I do love it, and it's not like I use it every night - just once in a while.
I went for a job interview the other day and I didn't get it. Consequently, I was feeling a little low and a bit down on myself, and, rather than feeding my face, as I normally would, I decided the better option was to buy myself something rather smelly and indulgent (and not to mention, expensive). I already own a bottle of Calvin Klein Euphoria Perfume and as I love the floral fruity scent so much I decided to treat myself to some tof the bath and shower cream in the same range.
As I say, it comes in a 200ml bottle which is fairly plainly packaged but I am not a lady who is swayed too much by the packaging of a product anyway. I used it a night later as I decided I needed some serious cheering up and it was a weekend and I had nothing planned.
I lit some candles, got my large glass of wine and ran the bath. I gently poured some of the contents of my Calvin Klein Euphoria Sensual Bath and Shower Cream under the running wate and immediately was hit by the gorgeous smell of perfume.
It is a little difficult for me to describe or even to do it justice. The cream was rather thick and rich looking as it came out of the bottle and the smell was sensual, sophisticated and mysterious, all in one. My kind of perfume! This is lovely to use if you are using the perfume too as it kind of 'builds up' layers and makes the scent last so much longer.
Added to this is the fact that it really does hydrate and nourish my skin and makes it feel smooth and velvety. I could have lain there all night - I didn't want to have to get out.
I really felt like I had just experienced true luxury. Calvin Klein Euphoria Sensual Bath and Shower Cream also clarifies your skin and can be used in the shower as well as the bath, though personally I have yet to do this.
I know paying over £21 for a bath cream is probably way too self-indulgent, but I don't think it does any harm once in a while, and no-one else is going to treat me so I may as well treat myself.
A lovely product and one which I really can recommend.

Euphoria is medically recognized as an emotional and mental state defined as a sense of great (usually exaggerated) elation and well-being. It is also the name of a range of perfumes and body lotions from Calvin Klein.
Calvin Klein first came to prominence in New York in 1968 when he had a collection of coats, expanding into sportswear, blazers and womenswear and then jeans. In the 1980's he entered the perfume market with Obsession, Eternity and CK one.
Euphoria is a fairly new fragrance, first coming out in 2005 with a mens version following shortly after in 2006.
Calvin Klein market their Euphoria for women as being about sexiness, fantasy and being captivating. The style it promotes is confident, sexy and chic. The Euphoria Sensual Bath and Shower Cream is described as a luxurious moisturising body wash. It contains a unique property to lock the natural moisture contact of your skin and gently cleanses and hydrates the natural skin leaving it completely soft and clean.
I do find it a very luxurious cream. It has a lightish pink/purple hue to it and looks very silky when it comes out of the bottle. It lathers up very well and goes onto the skin easily and I do find that it makes me skin nice and smooth after use. A little goes a long way. I have a 200ml bottle and have used it for about a month now in the shower and am not even half was through yet so that is good. Another nice thing is that it's such a strong, feminine fragrance and the smell will really stay on your skin for quite a while afterwards. It's great if you want to double up with the perfume after you get out of the shower to get a really strong scent.
The smell has top notes of pomegranate, persimmon and lush green accord, green notes, black orchid, lotus blossom, champaca flower, liquid amber, mahogany wood, black voilet and cream accord. To me the smell is quite flowery but does not have a sickly overpowering smell. Like I said it is quite strong but a light fragrance and not heavy in any way. I get quite a lot of compliments on it when I wear it which is nice.
The bottle is nice looking and will look great in your shower. It is a rectangular bottle and a nice pinky/purple colour with euphoria written on the front. The top is a chrome colour and pulls off which makes it very handy in the shower. You can find this product at Boots for £20.55.
