“ Brand: Nougat / Type: Bath Melt / What it does: Soothes, „
As most of you now know I am addicted to beauty products, whether it be shower gels, soap, bubble baths, moisturisers or perfume. I'm not fussy when beauty potions and lotions are concerned and Ill use anything as long as it smells nice and doesn't irritate and dry out my skin. Over the years I have tried out various different lotions and potions which have varied different price tags, although Nougat London's products have to be my firm favourites albeit Nougat products are a little expensive although they are truly worth the money because they are quality luxury products which not only smell nice, they also leave you feeling highly pampered and relaxed. There is only one problem with Nougat products and that is the fact that they can only be purchased from selected retail outlets such as John Lewis, House of Fraser etc or from selected online retailers.
Most of the time I just order my Nougat products online from www.bathandunwind.com because it is more convenient for me as my nearest John Lewis store is quite a fair distance from where I live, so by ordering online I save my self some hassle and the products get delivered straight to my door. A few months ago I decided to treat myself to a new Nougat product which I hadn't tried before, well I I'm honest I treated my self to 3 new nougat products; Bath Pearls, Bath Pillows and Bubble Bath.
I paid £25 for a 500ml bottle of Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls from www.bathandunwind.com about three or four months ago. Well I did say their products were expensive, I bet you weren't expecting a price tag like that. The bottle of Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls which I have is still over half full and I have been using it on a regular basis since I bought it approximately three months ago. The reason the Bath Pearls have lasted as long is because I only need to use a small amount of them in each bath, as a little of this product truly does go along way. I would expect this bottle to last for another 6 months or so before it runs out and I feel the need to replace it with another.
Nougat have lots and lots of different products to choose from, I have tried and tested about 75% of their product range and I haven't been disappointed yet. When ever I use a Nougat product I feel relaxed and pampered my skin also feels extremely soft and looks fantastic. Each and every product in the Nougat range is made to an extremely high standard, right down to the actual packaging. Normally I wouldn't describe the packaging in a review but in this instance I think it is important so as you can get an idea of how much thought and effort goes into the Nougat products.
The Nougat London Soothing Bath Pearls are supplied in a rather chunky looking glass decanter which also has a chunky glass stopper on top of it. The Glass Decanter is rather heavy due to the fact that it is made from thick glass and it contains lots and lots of little bath pearls. Around the neck of the glass decanter there is a thin piece of silver wire which has approximately ten diamante crystals attached to it. The crystals around the neck of the decanter give the bottle a very feminine, expensive and luxurious appearance. Well it is an expensive product but the crystals make it look a lot more luxurious and expensive than it is. On the front of the decanter there is a large cream coloured label which states that the product is manufactured by Nougat London and that the Soothing Bath Pearls are Jasmine and Tuberose scented. Mostly all of the Nougat London products have the same Jasmine and Tuberose fragrance although they have now introduced another fragrance into their range which is Fig and Cedar which is also an equally gorgeous and feminine scent.
I love the fact that the Glass decanter is made from clear glass as it is easy to see how much of the product is remaining inside and how much of it you are using. The Soothing Bath Pearls inside the decanter are really small, just slightly larger than the beans you would find inside of a bean bag. The Soothing Bath Pearls are a lovely magnolia colour and they also have a somewhat pearlescent appearance and a soft silky feeling.
As soon as you lift the glass stopper off of the glass decanter you can immediately smell the gorgeous Jasmine and Tuberose aroma which the Bath Pearls possess. When you are using the Soothing Bath Pearls you only have to use a very small amount of them as a little goes a long way. I find that a very small handful (approximately 10-12 pearls) are more than adequate to add to the bath. You just add a few of these into the bath when you are running the hot water and they will dissolve quickly and soften the bath water. The bath pearls also release some tiny shimmer particles in the water which also cling to your skin after you have bathed. The shimmer particles are pink, purple and silver coloured. As soon as you add the Soothing Bath Pearls to the running bath water the fragrance seems to react with the hot water and fills the bathroom with the gorgeous Jasmine and Tuberose aroma which is quite long lasting and lingers in the bathroom for approximately 3 hours after you have bathed. The Soothing Bath Pearls soften the water and turn it a lightly creamy colour. When I bathe using the Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls my skin feels extremely soft, smooth and moisturised; it is also highly fragranced. Again the fragrance which the Soothing Bath pearls leaves on my skin is long lasting and lingers for approximately 4 hours before it gradually fades away.
The fragrance which the Soothing Bath Pearls produces isn't cloying, heavy or overpowering. Most of the time I hate most beauty products which contain Jasmine as the Jasmine seems to be too heavy and cloying but in this instance the Jasmine is really delicate and subtle. The Soothing Bath Pearls have a very rich creamy aroma which is complimented with a few other fragrances. The creamy aroma is complimented with a delicate Jasmine and Tuberose floral undertone, which is very subtle and delicate. The subtle floral tone also has a rich musky Cedarwood and sandalwood undertone which complimented with the addition of vanilla and peach. The scent is extremely feminine, subtle and relaxing, its not too floral, musky or fussy, the fragrance notes are balanced perfectly and each note compliments the other.
I highly recommend trying Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls as they leave your skin feeling really soft and smooth, the Jasmine and Tuberose fragrance also leaves you feeling relaxed and highly pampered. When using this product it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, irritated or inflamed; it was really kind to my skin and left it with a really soft feeling and it also looked a lot healthier and smoother. Even although these Soothing Bath Pearls are expensive, I think that they are truly worth paying that bit extra for. If you haven't already tired any of Nougat London's products then I highly recommend that you do so as you wont be disappointed with any of them. I have yet to find one which I dislike, you can also purchase the Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls in the Fig and cedar fragrance of the Jasmine and Tuberose doesn't appeal to you. When I have finished my bottle of Bath Pearls I will rinse it out and peel of the label on the front of it and fill it with some coloured sand or bath salts and sit it in my bathroom which I did with my empty bottle of Nougat Bubble Bath.
Nougat London's products contain the finest luxury ingredients, and none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals.
If you like the sound of Nougat Soothing Bath Pearls then you can purchase the 500ml Glass decanter online from www.bathandunwind.com for the price of £25 (500ml glass decanter.
www.beautyexpert.co.uk are currently selling 500ml of Soothing Bath Pearls for the price of £18.50 which is really good value and probably the cheapest you could purchase them at; although I'm not too sure how long they will have this offer on for.
