N-Spa Indulgent Angel Cake Bath Syrup
Advantages: Lots of bubbles, sweet girly scent, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: Scent is not long lasting, skin isn't left feeling very moisturised
I'm not really a bath person and find myself taking a shower as I find it generally quicker and it leaves me feeling more refreshed. However I do like a long soak in the bath every now and then and as I'm currently 6 months pregnant with number 3 I do find the need to relax and soak in a bath is becoming more frequent. I mentioned to Mr Lools that I didn't have any bubble bath products and being the kind partner that he is, the following day he returned home from work (via Asda) with a little gift for me; N-Spa Angel Cake Bath Syrup.
*** N-Spa Angel Cake Bath Syrup***
The description of the Angel Cake Bath Syrup is "This truly indulgent spa inspired bath product will instantly fill your bathroom with sumptuous aroma of strawberry marshmallows layered with creamy vanilla cake and soft lemon fondant icing. The angel cake bath syrup has been specially formulated to cleanse the skin whilst keeping it moisturised and feeling soft to the touch."
The product is not tested on animals.
The product is available in a 100ml or 500ml sized bottle. The N-Spa Angel Cake Bath Syrup is available from Asda or directly from N-Spa online at www.nirvanaspa.co.uk . Although this was a "gift" from Mr Lools I know (being a regular Asda shopper) that the product costs £3.00 for a large 500ml bottle or £1.47 for the smaller 100ml sized bottle. Although not the cheapest of bubble bath type products it priced very reasonably and I wouldn't consider it as expensive.
I tend not to be a regular bather; and find myself opting for a shower because of convenience but when I do take a bath it is to relax. This has started to happen more regularly since becoming pregnant and suffering quite bad backache therefore when I take a soak I like to use a bath product with a relaxing aroma that creates a lot of bubbles.
I was not disappointed when I first poured the syrup into my bath when it was running. Immediately when the pink liquid hit the warm running water it started to create bubbles. Seconds later the warm sweet aroma became apparent. This was a very sweet scent but not sickly. It was a warm sweet vanilla scent and I definitely think it smelt like a freshly baked cake. After a few minutes of pouring the bath syrup into the warm running water there was a much more fruity scent that had developed. This was quite a tangy mixture of strawberries and lemons without being too sharp and still had a warm sweetness about the scent.
I did find that on the first occasion I poured an amount of bath syrup equivalent to the size of two 50p pieces. This created a lot of bubbles and on the occasions I used this product after this I used about two thirds the amount and this still created ample bubbles for a bath full of bubbles.
The angel cake scent is long lasting whilst bathing and this gives a relaxing bath time experience because you can still smell the sweet warm vanilla mixed with the fruity strawberry and lemon scents.
After bathing and drying myself I did feel relaxed but I must admit I did feel slightly disappointed that the delicious scent is not long lasting on the skin. My skin smelt clean and did have a very slight sweet scent to it but I had to sniff my skin very closely to make out this very slight sweet scent. Once dry you can't really make out the scent of the bath syrup at all.
My skin felt clean after drying but not overly smooth or soft like I had hoped. My skin tends to be drier especially during winter and even after regular baths using this bath syrup I have not noticed any real difference to the condition of my skin. The packaging claims that the product moisturises however I did not really feel these claims were true in my experience and I have used other bath products that have had a much superior moisturising effects.
I would definitely recommend the N-Spa Angel Cake Bath Syrup to those that like relaxing baths and bath syrup that gives a sweet sugary scent to skin without being overly sickly. I do feel because of the sweetness and the vanilla scent this is a very feminine bath product and most males would probably describe it as "too girly" like Mr Lools did.
The bath syrup is also very good value for money at £3.50 for a large 500ml bottle, especially as a small amount of product creates a lot of bubbles.
The main downside I find with this product is that the bath syrup does not have long lasting effects. The scent of the bath syrup is very appealing as it is a sweet warm vanilla type scent very much like cake but not too overly sickly however this scent does not last on the skin after I have dried off. My skin has a very slight sweet scent to it but this is only very slight and you have to sniff the skin closely to make this out. The packaging also claims that the syrup leaves skin moisturised however I did not feel my skin was left as smooth and soft feeling as it does after using other bath products.
