Cussons Imperial Leather Softly Softly Bath
Advantages: smells great, leaves skin soft and moisturised, cheap
Disadvantages: Lid is hard to replace
My latest bath foam was one which I was initial undecided about trying, I have bought 2 others in this range and liked one and not the other. This one did sound good from the writing on the front of the bottle and for the price tag I decided to give it a go, I am very pleased that I did.
The bath foam comes in a clear plastic bottle which is a wavy shape. It has the Imperial Leather logo on the top and a pattern in the middle of pink hearts, the product name and scent is written below this. On the back of the bottle you can find all of the product details and the directions for use.
The top of the bottle is white plastic and fit very snugly onto the top of the bottle. I have found it is quit tricky to get this on and off and even more so if you have wet hands.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
It really is very simple to use the bath foam, that is once you have managed to get the lid off, a small amount of the liquid needs to be poured into running water. I have noticed the liquid is a good consistency so I don't have to stand for ages waiting for it to come out of the bottle and neither do I get lots coming out when I only want a small amount. The bath foam instantly starts to work and lather once it mixes with the water. I am pleased to say that the bath foam does not change the water colour which is good as I think it would be slightly off putting getting into a murky bath. We do also get a lot of lather and bubbles from only using a small amount of the liquid. The bubbles and lather are white and are soft and light and they do last for a good length of time. I have still had some left in the water after having a good 15 minute bath.
There is a scent to the bath foam and it is classed as jojoba and vitamin e according to the bottle. Personally I find it smells just like a sweet soap. I know this may be a bit of an obscure description of the scent but I cannot think of anything it resembles. The scent is light and very pleasant and I do think it is suitable for the whole family. Once I had gotten out of the bath and dried off I was still able to smell the scent on me for a good few hours and even hubby commented on how nice it was. He to has had the lingering scent after using this and does not feel that it is overly feminine.
I found my skin was left feeling very soft and moisturised after bathing in this and this feeling lasted for a good few hours. I hate having a bath and then feeling like my skin is dry and tight. I had lovely soft skin which was a delight and I felt very clean. I did not have any patches of dried skin from using this and even hubby who has sensitive skin has had no reactions from using it. I have allowed my boys to use this in their baths and I have noticed that the scent and softness does last for slightly longer on their skin. They have their baths before bed and I am still able to smell this on them the following morning.
The bottle size is 500ml and if you only use a small amount in each bath you should get 10-15 baths from the one bottle. It lasts in my house for about 1 month as I do have so many bath foams to choose from.
The bath foam has skin friendly pH, is mild enough for the whole family, dermatologically tested and 100% soap free. I do agree with these claims which are on the back of the bottle, especially the soap free one as when my boys got bubbles and lather on their face and in the eyes it did not irritate them like it would have if it contained soap.
The ingredients for the bath foam for those wishing to know are:-
Aqua, sodium laureth sulphate, cocamidopropyl betain, sodium chloride, glycerine, polyquaternium-7, parfum, styrene / acrylates copolymer, tocopheryl acerate, simmondsia chinesis, sodium benzoate, lactic acid, tetrasodium glutamate diacetate.
The shelf life of the bath foam is 12 months. The bottle is fully recyclable too.
There are no claims on the packaging at all as to whether this bath foam has been tested on animals or not.
~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
I bought my latest bottle of this bath foam from Asda and it cost me just £1. this can be bought in all supermarkets and usually comes at the same price. I think this is excellent value for money.
I really am more than happy to give this bath foam a very high recommendation. It smells great and leaves skin soft, moisturised and clean. The price tag is another bonus so I say it is definitely worth a try as it is suitable for the whole family. The full 5 stars from me and my family.
Summary: A lovely bath foam for the whole family to use
