“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Bath Product „
I love a bath I must admit and for this reason I love buying bath products of course! I don't really mind the amount I spend in this area be it a big amount of small amount of pennies but what I initially care about is the smell which is what attracted me to buy this particular one and then of course the skin benefits (after I've used it lol). I have combination skin which means some of my skin goes dry and bit patchy, flaky and other areas go greasy like my back and I do get blackheads on my chest if I'm not careful! Not a good look that I can tell you, so I am careful what I buy lol.
I usually buy branded bath foams such as Simple and Johnson's but I do get very bored of that! I went to Morrison's the other day while my Mum was taking an age to choose a chicken and i got into opening all different toiletries and sniffing and I liked the look of this one and after one sniff I threw it in my basket thinking I wanna smell like a scrummy strawberry! It smelt gorgeous!
400ml, clear plastic slightly squeezable bottle with silver writing all over it and at the top a shiny silver screw on/off lid concealing a large hole. On the front I'm told it's Morrisons, Very Berry Collection, Sumptuous Strawberry Bath and there is a drawing of a strawberry plant (also in silver) drawn on. on the back of the bottle I'm told a bit about the product, ingredients warnings and directions for use are given, contact details for Morrisons are given, size is stated and finally there is a bar-code on there. It's a lovely sophisticated looking bottle that would look nice given as a gift with a few other bits and bobs. It's tall and elegant and looks simple and I love the fact that I can see the rich, red glossy liquid through the bottle giving a real contrast to the silver writing and drawing on the bottle and it's handy you can see when it needs replacing (if desired).
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Bottle....
Sumptuous Strawberry Foaming Bath Cream, with a sumptuously sweet, decadent fragrance that combines sun-ripened strawberries with red raspberries wrapped in pure honey and creamy vanilla accords. Relax in this rich foaming bath cream with its subtle shimmer and added moisturisers. It will leave your skin feeling soft and delicately fragranced.
Directions For Use...
Pour under warm running water.
My Experience Using It....
Well I use it as directed of course and I pour a small amount under running taps. It comes out of the bottle rather runnily although blobs into the bath in big red splodges that sink, stay cloggy and stodgy even with water hitting it and you have to get your hands in to waft the water about a bit and to break up the mess otherwise the liquid sinks and you get very little fragrance, colour to the bath or bubbles. It's easy to break up though with your hands and fingers and when you do the water turns quite pink and immediately you get greeted with large, thick white bubbles. These bubbles don't hang about though and if you touch them they don't feel really soft and moisturising or anything though of course they are ok.
Smell wise, in the bath it's a different story to sniffing it in the bottle. Of course in the bottle it's stronger while you heavily inhale it up one nostril but in the bath it isn't so strong and even by adding loads of the product to your bath you don't tend to get much more fragrance. At first sniff it is like ripened natural strawberries and has a nice sweetness to it and coupled with the pinky colour of the bath (which is none staining) looks great and tempting to dunk in. However the vanilla and honey smells don't mix with water and evaporate totally and get lost though again in the bottle you can detect those ingredients along with the raspberries.
Once in the bath it's all very ordinary from there on in. Water is soft enough in an every day soft way rather than being a treat to bath in. It doesn't overly hydrate the skin but it doesn't dry it out and/or irritate it either. The bubbles last about half an hour tops and the only sad thing about the bath is either you become very immune to the smell quickly or it loses it and I'm not sure which! It just was quite dull and well... I used my other cleaning products in the bath and those products took over smell wise anyway.
When I emptied my bath no staining was left, no scum and no smell on me particularly or in my bathroom was apparent. It was just very simple to use but gave me nothing special but I felt clean and refreshed enough.
A product that at first glance filled me with hope and excited my senses but the reality is it's just a rather cheap product in an elegant bottle. Kind of mutton dressed up as lamb type of thing. It didn't do anything bad to my skin but didn't give me any shimmer or make me smell yummy either! It's ok and I can't slag it off as there is nothing wrong with it but luxurious it just isn't.
Only to be purchased in Morrison's for £1.39 a bottle.
