Marks and Spencer bath fizzers
Little Miss likes to try new things in her bath- a real lotions and potions lady! At the time of purchase, these were on a Buy 2 get 1 free offer, so we got quite a little bargain, and since they promised to be glitter bath fizzers, I knew she would use and enjoy them
~~WHAT ARE THEY?~~
These are in a plastic packet, and once opened, each of the bath fizzers are tightly wrapped in plastic- this does need adult help to get them open at this point.
There is one fizzer each of Luscious Lime, Mellow Yellow, Orange Sorbet and Purple Passion, with the four colours being, not surprisingly, green, yellow, orange and purple.
~~HOW TO USE THEM~~
Simply drop one of the fizzers into the bath (we put one in while the water is running), and you are supposed to get a fruity explosion.
There is a warning that this is not a food product, which is probably quite a wise warning. They do actually look as though they would taste fruity- well, I think they would to small children.
If the product gets into your eyes, it suggests you rinse them out, but we have splashed around and I think they are quite mild; certainly not strong enough to cause that awful stinging sensation some soaps can cause. They also seem to be ok for young skin, not having had any adverse effect on Little Lady's skin.
~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
They can be bought in Marks and spencer stores or online, www.marksandspencer.co.uk.
They cost £3.00. so for £6.00, you get 3 packsÖ12 fizzers in all. At 50p a fizzer, itís still quite expensive, but they do make nice little extras in a gift
I have a feeling they are probably a seasonal product, and will not be for sale all year round; they are probably being sold very cheaply now the sales right now!
~~WHAT I THINK~~
If put into the bath while the water is running, they do dissolve quite quickly, and you can actually see them fizzing and reducing in size, although the method Little Miss prefers is to hold them in her hands so they never dissolve quite quickly. As they dissolve, they leave a pleasant fruity smell, according to their colour, but the water does then look a tad murky, so I add bubble bath as well, because it looks altogether more appealing. When the water is let out of the bath, there is no nasty residue and bits left at the bottom, and round the edges of the bath, so Thatís good.
However, I prefer to add bubble bath because it feels altogether cleaner and more luxurious.
The fizzers do look appealing in the packet- good enough to eat, and the colours are almost certain to appeal, especially to youngsters. They are quite difficult to get out of the plastic packet, and in fact, if you donít look carefully, you may not realise that there is a plastic wrapping.
As a stocking filler, of a little extra to add to a gift, I would recommend these because they look pretty and have a certain gimmicky feel. However, for everyday use, I will stick to my bubble bath because I find it a more relaxing bath.
Thanks for reading
Summary: good extra gift- appealing for youngsters
