Imperial Leather Soft Touch Moisturising Bath Cream
Advantages: Lovely fragrance and plenty of bubbles
Disadvantages: None for me
I have tried a few of the Imperial Leather products in the past and have always found them to be of good quality, as part of a Christmas present I received the Imperial Leather Soft Touch Moisturising Bath Cream with Jojoba Milk and Vitamin E, this was one product I hadn't tried was keen to see what it was going to be like, bath cream is basically like a bubble bath which is something I do enjoy from time to time, however its not something I always thing about buying for myself and often only use it when I receive it as a present, I hadn't actually had bubble bath for a while so it was a nice change to give it a try.
The Bath Cream comes in a large clear curved plastic bottle which allows you to see the bath cream inside, it also has a chunky transparent dark purple lid which copies the shape of the bottle, this pulls on and off of the top of the bottle and I have to say can be a bit tricky to remove especially with wet hands, I have found that you need to twist it a little as you pull to remove it and it is best to have dry hands first as your hands will slip off of the lid. The bottle has a clear plastic label stick to the front of it, this has the red and gold Imperial Leather logo at the top of it and the name of the product towards the bottom "Soft Touch Moisturising Bath Cream with Jojoba Milk and vitamin E", this is written in purple to blend in with the theme of the product with the words "Moisturising Bath Cream" written within a silver rectangle, the rest of the label is taken up with a picture of 3 large purple flower heads/ buds made to look like they are dropping into the bath milk with little ripples coming from them. The rest of the product information is on the back of the bottle, there is a statement about the bath cream, along with the ingredients, cautions and a sentence about the different elements of the product, these are all written in dark purple so they stand out and are easy to read on the lighter background.
The Bath Cream
The two elements of the Imperial Leather Bath Cream are Jojoba Milk and Vitamin E, on the back of the bottle is a short statement about what each of these do, this includes
* Jojoba Milk - This is classed as a natural moisturiser and will help to nourish and moisturise your skin
* Vitamin E - This is an antioxidant to help maintain healthy happy skin
What I particularly like about this Bath Cream is that it is demagogically tested and is mild, I have found in the past that if I use too much bubble bath it can irritate my skin, however this particular one is mild and gentle on your skin which makes it suitable for the whole family, so far I have had no problems with this irritating my skin at all. I was also interested to see how well it moisturised my skin as the back of the bottle states that it contains triple moistening ingredients, however I wasn't overly convinced that a bubble bath could actually moisturise my skin, the main thing was that it didn't leave it feeling tight and dry.
The Imperial Leather Jojoba Milk and vitamin E Bath Cream is white in colour and inside the bottle does look like a thick milk, I was a little surprised about the consistency of this product, bubble bath style products I have used in the past are often of quite a thick consistency however this seemed a little runnier. When I first smelt this I instantly liked the fragrance, personally I have no idea what Jojoba Milk should smell like however this Bath Cream has quite a sweet fragrance to it, it is very slightly floral with a hint of what could be vanilla and musk combined. I actually have not idea what the individual fragrances in this are and there is no information about this on the packaging, however to me this has a definite sweet musk smell to it which is lovely, it is not what I would call refreshing but it is a relaxing fragrance.
I used my Imperial Leather Bath Milk just as I would any other bubble bath style product and poured some into my bath under the running water and allowed it to lather up, I only needed a small amount to create a bath full of bubbles. Once lathered up you could still clearly smell the fragrance of the product with was quite strong yet not over the top. What I particularly like about this was that the bubbles lasted throughout my whole bath, I do not like it when you use a bubble bath type product and half way though your bath you realise the bubbles have totally disappeared, I like mine to remain to the end and with this product they certainly did. When I got out of the bath I could still detect the fragrance of the bath milk on my skin, this was quite light and delicate, however I was pleased about this as I didn't want it strong and over powering. The bath milk had left my skin feeling lovely and clean, whilst I wouldn't say it very overly moisturised my skin did not feel dry or tight and it certainly felt soft to touch so maybe it had moisturised it a little.
The only caution on the back of the bottle is to avoid contact with the eyes and should this happen rinse well with clean water, this is common sense really, and personally I would add to that should a reaction occur when using this product stop use immediately. With it being gentle on your skin this is unlikely to happen and I personally have had no problems however everyone is different ad this may not suit everyone's skin type.
Price and Availability
As I have mentioned I didn't actually buy my bottle of Imperial Leather Bath Cream with Jojoba Milk and vitamin E myself, however I do know that this product is available in my local Tesco and the 500ml bottle costs £1.53, personally I feel this is good value for money as you do not need a massive amount of the bath milk at a time making it long lasting, I have used mine a few times and have only used a small amount out of the bottle. This is definitely worth the money in my opinion.
I would definitely recommend the Imperial Leather Bath Cream with Jojoba Milk and Vitamin E, this has a lovely fragrance and makes a bath very relaxing. It is reasonably priced and long lasting making it very economical. I particularly liked this product as it is ideal for the whole family, it is gentle on your skin and does not dry it out, it left my skin feeling clean and fresh as well as soft to touch. Overall I was very impressed with my Bath Cream and will definitely consider buying it in the future.
Summary: A nice bath product I would use again
