Original Source Tea Tree & Lavender Bath Foam
Advantages: Relaxing, calming formula. Creates lovely bubbles.
Disadvantages: None for me, but you might find the fragrance overwhelming.
I was really pleased to find myself the recipient of this Original Source Relaxing Lavender and Tea Tree Bath Foam in a competition recentlty and I couldn't wait to use it. I use bath foam or milk in practically every bath I take as I just love to feel soft bubbles and relax with gorgeous scents.
This product now looks a little different from the Dooyoo picture shown here. Now the bottle is old style milk bottle shaped with a flat screw off top. It's a clear plastic bottle and thankfully is recyclable. There is one label all the way round the bottle which is printed with the product information. This includes details like contact addresses for the brand, full ingredients, directions for use and essential product information.
The bath foam is approved as being suitable for vegans and bares the Cussons logo. Original Source are masters of using real, natural ingredients in their products and boast that there are "37 handfuls" of real lavender in each 500ml sized bottle. Impressive, huh? This is listed in the ingredients as being Lavender Oil. You also have Tea Tree Leaf Oil in there.
The bath foam is a vivid purple colour and since the bottle is transparent you can see it and it is a lovely invigorating shade which provides a bit of colour therapy! Directions for use state to add to water. I pour under a running tap as the motion of the water can help to create foam.
The bath foam is quite runny and thin in comparison to other Original Source bath products I've used. It means it runs out of the bottle quite quickly and very easily. I discovered early on that you really don't need to use all that much as this is a powerful formula!
The liquid gel dissolves in hot water and transforms into slippery, glistening bubbles which cover the surface of the water. The fragrance of the bath foam is purely lavender and it's very strong so be sure you like the lavender fragrance prior to purchasing! I used to think associate lavender with granny perfumes but as I got older started to see it as a scent that could relax me. In this bath foam the scent is so strong that it really is like undergoing some kind of aromatherapy treatment! The fragrance hangs in the steamy channels and perfumes the water and my skin. It is definitely a fragrance that is calming and which makes you unwind both mentally and physically.
I really like this bath foam and find that it's best used at the end of the day or after strenuous activity when I want to take it easy. Using this bath foam helps make my muscles untie their knots and my mind discard any worries for a while. It's a pleasant bath time experience in terms of providing a blanket of white bubbles which feel soft and silky too. I like that it's powerful enough to leave it's fragrance on my skin too so that even after the bath that distinctive lavender scent lingers and still has that relaxing effect. It's also a good bath foam to use if you have a cold as it can really make you breathe easier.
I would definitely purchase this product and recommend it to others as it's a high quality bath foam that has obvious benefits. Thank you, Original Source.
Summary: Great bath foam to help me unwind and enjoy my bath.
