I was bought the creme bath oil for Christmas and have used it every night!
The smell is absolutely divine!! The whole house becomes engulfed with the perfume once I've poured a capful under hot, running water. The smell is so unique and refreshing it certainly makes a difference from your usual lavenders and citrusy smells!
It comes in a glass bottle and actually looks quite smart in my bathroom. It has luxury written all over it!!
The oil is so moisturizing that there is no longer to moisturise my skin after bathing anymore.
The only downside is the fact that it is an oil. Sounds silly I know, but the bath can become quite oily( and therefore slippery) and in need of a clean more often than you would like to clean a bath!
On the whole, I think the extra effort in cleaning the bath more often is far outweighed by this little luxury in the bottle.
So, run the water, pour a capful and lock the kidsd out of the bathroom for some relaxing 'me' time.
Fenjal is a brand which specialises in fancy shower and bath goods. Previously, I've used a few of their products in the past and had been impressed but this 'luxury' bath oil was a different story. Fenjal has a high price tag obviously and I paid £11.99 for this oil from Boots. I brought it purely because my skin had gotten quite dry recently and this claimed to soften my skin.
The product is contained in a light blue box, with the Fenjal logo clearly on the front and inside the box is a nicely shaped, curved bottle with an aquamarine, runny oil inside. Admittedly, I was impressed by the design of the product. In contrast, I wasn't impressed by the oil. For application, just pour a small amount into a hot bath, a small bit goes along way however the runny consistency of the oil is difficult to control and I've ended up putting way too much than I needed to in my bath. Unlike bubble bath, this oil creates no bubbles and just turns your bath water into a slightly tinted aqua colour. The smell is undescribable, it's sort of like an eucalyptus scent and is very strong, I do enjoy the smell though. Unfortunately, the oil didn't do anything to my skin, my skin felt the same, if not even drier than before.
After usage, my skin wasn't softer like it was promised to be. After I drained my bath, the surface of the plastic felt very slippy, which was obviously hazardous and the smell of the oil still lingered in my bathroom for hours to come.
Overall, I wasn't impressed with this Fenjal oil especially considering what I paid for it. I was expecting alot more from it and I won't be purchasing it again and I wouldn't advise anyone else to buy it either unless you want a dangerous, slippery bath and unnoticably different skin. Not worth the money. 2 stars.
A few months ago, for my birthday, I was given a bottle of Fenjal cream bath. I love having a long soak in the bath and could hardly wait to try out my present. I had seen Fenjal on the shelf in my local Boots but had decided that the price tag was just too much for me to justify buying a bottle.
Fenjal cream bath comes in a turquoise box. I was pleased to see that the cream bath is contained in a rather shapely glass bottle that could be recycled. As the label stated that this was a luxury cream bath I was intrigued to see that it was a blue liquid contained inside the bottle and not a cream. I followed the instructions and poured a capful of the turquoise liquid into the running water. I was disappointed that no bubbles were produced, as I like lots of bubbles in my bath! The water turned a very pale turquoise as I poured.
Fenjal cream bath is made in Switzerland using pure plant oils. The scent of Fenjal is certainly unique and very difficult to describe. It is quite pleasant although I prefer a more florally scent. The scent is quite strong and I could still smell it in my bathroom an hour later.
The information on the box promises that Fenjal will leave your skin feeling soft and well moisturised. It did leave my skin feeling very soft but unfortunately left my legs feeling quite dry. I have sensitive skin and Fenjal didn't cause any irritation.
Overall I found Fenjal very oily and didn't like the way it left my bath feeling slippery. The smell is unique but I'm not sure I really like it although I don't dislike it either if you understand me! I was disappointed that this wasn't a rich cream bath and prefer lots of lovely bubbles.
If you fancy trying Fenjal then it is widely available. I recently saw in on sale in Boots at £11.99 for a 100ml bottle. I wouldn't buy it myself for any price!
I love Fenjal! The only problem with Fenjal is the price, but.... I guess the saying "You get what you pay for" is completely true in this case, and because you only need to use such a small amount a bottle lasts ages.
Lets talk about what it isn't before I tell you what it is - Is isn't a bubble bath, (in fact there are no visible bubbles at all). It isn't something where you just pour a load of it in and lie back and relax.
It is something where you follow the exact instructions of how much to put in (one capful to running water) and when you come out your skin will be softer than ever before.
Fenjal is from a swiss recipe and contains pure plant oils and it really does make your skin feel softer afterwards. It also stops you needing to apply a body oil or body lotion after a bath because it's just not needed anymore.
Fenjal is made from natural products, is Ph neutral, is dermatologically tested and so so seems to be suitable for all. My nine year old daughter has very dry skin and this does make a huge difference to her.
Depending on your budget, preference etc, Fenjal should either be a special "treat" or something you use regularly, but either way you should definately have a bottle in your bathroom cabinet.
I recently reviewed my old favourite Badedas bubble bath and mentioned that I often noticed a product called Fenjal on the shelf beside it. Being rather pricy and having another odd sounding name I ignored it frequently until last week curiosity got the better of me and I found myself buying it lured by a discount in Boots.
The box is a pale green/turquoise and is made to look inviting like a spa. It is described as a luxury cream bath with natural oils and is made in Switzerland.
When I think of Switzerland I think of fresh clean mountains and lush green pastures so I was expecting a lot from this. It is described as a plant based liquid. When you add to the water it turns a misty pale blue. There are no bubbles. I suppose I was disappointed by this but it does not claim to be a bubble bath so I can't criticise that.
The smell is interesting my husband said he thought it was tropical but there were no coconuts about it. I thought it was more like those bath oils you used to get for Christmas which looked like little bombs. It was really exciting to watch them explode but then apart from a slippery bath and a bit of a smell that was all you had.
The liquid does come in an attractive glass bottle though which is a good feature as it can all be recycled.
The website at www.fenjal.com is a mesmerising bath of oils and fishes which swirl about all over the page in a tantalising fashion. The translation to English is interesting in places but mainly it focuses on the fragrance side of the product which is what it claims makes it special.
It is not in my opinion as moisturising as many of my other bath time treats. My skin felt dry especially on the legs and I needed to use more moisturiser than usual.
The box does warn against slipping as it can leave a residue on the bath so don't buy it for a present for an elderly relative. It is also not advised to allow it to come in contact with the eyes.
They actually make a whole range of toiletries but I'm afraid I won't be rushing out to try them.
I don't think for the price it represents good value for money. Even with a third off it works out at £3.92 per 100ML which is three times as expensive as Badedas. It will last a while though mostly because I won't be using it very often.
I am sure the product has its loyal customers but sadly it doesn't do it for me. It does really make the bath dangerously slippy too so be careful if you try it. The box claims to "provide your skin with the valuble oils which everyday life steals away"
I wish I could say it does.
Sink into the pure plant oil of Fenjal and leave your skin feeling soft and silky /
