“ Brand: Enchanted / Type: Bath Milk / Subcategory: Bath Cream / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
The bath milk from Enchanted is an excellent product. I dont generally get dry skin but over the past few weeks I've found that my skin is loosing its moisture. Having purched the Bath Milk, I decided to give it a go.
The product comes in a 200ml bottle, nothing overally fancy. Personally I like the product to do the selling, not the packaging. A 200ml bottle should roughly give you 4 baths worth, averaging at 50ml a bath as recommended. Although the bath milk can be made in every scent on the Enchanted website, I went for a new Halloween scent called Ghost!!
I poured my 50ml into the bath and looked on as the bath water turned cloudy. The scent was very strong once it hit the water, a thing I love. I climed into the bath and soaked in my bath milk, taking in the relaxing scent. You could tell that the water was definatley softer, more silky than a plain bath. Saying that there was no greasy residue on the top of the water either.
Once I got out of the bath I could definately notice that my skin was much softer than usual and very moisturised. The slightly scaly patches on my elbows, knees and backs of my heels were gone, amazing. On top of that the rest of my body was very soft too and beautifully fragranced, and overall I was very impressed.
The Bath milk is currently on offer at an introductionary price of 8.00gbp until the 1st of Oct, on www.enchantedbath.co.uk when it will go to the normal selling price of 10.00gbp. I suppose it is a little expensive averaging at 2.50 a bath, but when you consider some bath bombs cost 2.95 per bath bomb it isn't so bad. Not only that, the properties of the bath milk are definatly worth the price especially if your skin is a little under the weather. Highly recommend, brillaint product.
I have really dry, sensitive skin which means I have to choose which toiletries I use carefully, as it is far to easy to provoke it with something fun but sadly too harsh, and end up with a nasty allergic reaction. After going away for the weekend for a friend's Birthday party, I stupidly forgot to pack my toilet bag. In my foolishness I used the products provided in the hotel, and after a couple of days I was suffering from really dry sore patches on my knees and elbows, and shiny tight patches on my shins.
I love having long baths, so had a long bath when I got home to try to improve the condition of my skin, but found that my usual bath products were drying my skin out further and just making it worse.
I asked the owner of Enchanted, Sarah, if she could recommend me anything to help my skin. Being an Enchanted addict I was eager to see if she could make me something nice for use in the bath, as I have always got on well with her other products, and they always look after my skin really well. She suggested I try this bath milk. It was expensive- I paid £10 for a 200ml bottle, but she assured me I only needed a little at a time as the milk holds the scent well, and that it would nourish my skin, and help to inject some much needed moitsure.
I ordered the bath milk in two flavours (only to justify the postage costs you understand!):
Bath Pixie- this is a cherry and vanilla creme brule scent
SubLIME- my favourite Enchanted scent- lime, caramel and marshmallows
The full scent list is available at www.enchantedbath.co.uk. There are loads of scents to choose from, so there is bound to be something to suit all tastes.
The bath milk came in a clear, strong plastic bottle, with a sturdy yet easy-to-open lid. As with many Enchanted products, the packaging is simple, and by using see-through bottles, they let the bath milk do the talking.
As the name suggests, the product is a white, milky colour, and had quite a runny texture. I added a couple of squirts of the bath milk to the bath as the water was running. It turned the water a cloudy colour, and the bathroom immediately filled up with a delicious scent.
When I got into the bath, the water felt really soft, and even after just 10 minutes I could feel the difference in my skin. It felt like a layer of moisture had formed over my skin, and I really didn't want to get out! Two hours later when I finally managed to drag myself out of the bath, I couldn't believe the difference in my skin. The lesser dry patches had completely disappeared, and the more severe rough patches definitely looked and felt less sore. I have found with regular use this product has really helped my skin. Overall, my skin is less dry, and my dry patches have disappeared, with the harsh rough patches on my knees and elbows much improved.
The scents do smell lovely in the bath, and do linger for a good hour or so after I've pulled the plug and the water has gone. The more bath milk you use, the stronger the scent is. As it is quite expensive, I tend to ration it as I've found I only need a little in my bath water to soothe my skin, and will sometimes add a little bit of bubble bar to create a Lush/ Enchanted cocktail. The bubble bar gives me extra fragrance cheaply, and some bubbles that my skin won't react to, while the bath milk sorts out my skin. If I use the bath milk on its own then I do miss having bubbles in the bath, but I would much rather have softer, happier skin than go back to my old bubble bath!
I really recommend this bath milk if you have dry or sensitive skin. It is very moisturising, and really soothing for sore skin. I have now gone on to add to my collection, and recently pucrchased another bottle of this bath milk in Chocolate Truffle- a dark chocolate scent with a hint of almonds. It is delicious and I come out of the bath feeling and smelling like a giant Ferrero Roche!
This bath milk has recently been added to the Enchanted website (www.enchantedbath.co.uk), where it is currently available in any scent for £8 as an introductory offer until 01/10/2010, which is a decent saving of £2. Also if you spend over £50, you receive a 50ml bottle of bath milk in your choice of fragrance for free with your order- see the "Special Offers" tab for more details. The milk is available in any fragrance off the scent list, and in addition Enchanted offer a custom blending service if you are after something unique. Everything is handmade to order, and this bath milk really is a treat for dry or sensitive skin- highly recommended.
I had never tried bath milk before Enchanted. I have always been a "bath with lots of bubbles" kinda girl but this bath milk really was a definate good change for me. I now know why Cleopatra insisted on bath milk in all her baths.
I was lucky enough to test the bath milk and received it in Temptress of the Night (one of my favourite scents) and immediately, the scent wafted from the bottle, making me feel warm and cosy before I even stepped a foot in the bath (Temptress of the Night smells of Vanilla Musk, Amber and warmed milk). Pouring some into the water, my bath turned a powdery white colour and the scnet felt like it was leaping off of the water, almost like it was luring me in (as if I need luring into a bath - my husband says he thinks I was a mermaid in a previous life!).
Honestly, when I got into the bath it wasn't like stepping into water, it was like stepping into something much more luxurious. I can't even describe how lovely it felt. Think a super soft blanket wrapped around you on a cold winter's night and you're about half way there. It was a truly beautiful bath - one of the best I have ever had. Upon getting out, my skin was scented and soft - super soft, so soft, my husband commented on it! It simply is another must have from Enchanted.
