“ Brand: Little Me Organics / Type: Bath Soak „
As a new Mum to be I have been enjoying trying out a variety of products aimed at pregnant ladies for the first time. This bath soak was given to me at Christmas, and I thought it made a lovely little present.
The bath soak is available from Mothercare, Boots and a number of other pregnancy retailers. It is generally sold for about 4.99 in a 300ml bottle, so a fair bit pricier than your average bubble bath.
The bottle is quite simple, but prettily designed to accentuate the organic nature of the product with bees and flowers. It has a flip lid with a narrow hole for dispensing the liquid.
The bath soak itself has been designed with expectant mothers in mind, so you feel really looked-after when you use it. An aromatherapist advised on the essential oils (Rosehip and Borage) which would be beneficial mums to be, and all the other ingredients are organic. Sniffing the bottle, I was surprised that it contains essential oils as the fragrance was so mild. In fact, it was difficult to tell that there was a fragrance at all.
Poured under running water, the bath soak bubbles up quickly but not excessively. I did need to use about one sixth of the bottle (50mls), but I live in a hard-water area and have a rather large bath! The liquid is opaque, of a pinkish hue and is fairly thin in consistency. Disappointingly the fragrance did not become any more apparent as the liquid was added to the bath.
After manoeuvring my 7-month pregnant self into the inviting waters, the bubbles couldn't take it any more and disappeared in about five minutes. I consoled myself with the fact that this product is a bath soak, not a bubble bath.
The soak was certainly soothing on my skin which is often itchy due to expansion, and once I'd managed to get myself out of the bath and dried off, I was pleased to notice that the soothing feeling continued. My skin also felt moisturised and smooth, and I felt relaxed. However, to be frank, nothing about using this product differed from my normal bathing experience other than feeling smug that I had been using a 'safe and gentle' and organic product specially for mums to be.
