“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Bath Cream / Subcategory: Bath Cream / Oil „
===Bottle has changed slightly and now has a blue lid and blue lettering=== ===The Brand=== Made for Tesco. ===The Product=== Tesco Creamy Bath Soak - Magnolia and Silk. With added natural extracts. 'More bubbles, improved.' Opaque white bottle with vivid white thickish liquid. Bottle is a thin sort of plastic with a mid blue large screw top cap. Writing n the bottle is is two shades of blue. Message on the back states specially created to cleanse and hydrate your skin as you bathe, helping to leave it feeling soft and smooth.' Instructions are to pour into running water. Avoid eyes. 1 litre bottle and made in the UK. Use within 24 moths. Among other ingredients are Glycerine and Magnolia Flower Extract. ===Cost=== Currently unavailable on the Tesco website but I think it was bout 88p for a 1 litre bootle. ===My Opinion=== This is a large bottle of bath cream for the price and when I opened it first I was very pleased with the lovely magnolia and floral smell. It was not overpowering but smelt very clean and fresh, as you would expect some lovely soaps to smell. The cream itself is reasonably thick and on using it in the bath I was surprised by how much bubbles it made, as often cream baths do not generate bubbles at all. Also the bubbles hast until you are out of the bath, which is also surprising as I stay in for ages. It does not make your skin feel dry at all and is creamy in its way, though I would not say it was actually moisturising your skin. There was also no residual aroma on my skin after the bath. This has a slight aroma but is delicate enough not to offend the nostrils of any males in the household. I like the magnolia smell and the large bottle will do a good many baths. I would also like to use this when having showers as I often use bath products for both showers and baths, however with this squashy bottle you have to be careful as too much might come out, especially with wet hands - the answer is to decant it into a smaller sturdier bottle with a smaller opening - such as the Body Shop ones - then you only need a blob on your sponge or scrunchie and you are away. This is a great product for the money and the only drawback I would say would be that the bottle is flimsy and so you may pour out more than you wanted without realising. ===Star Rating=== 4 stars. ===Would I Recommend?=== Yes. ===Website=== www.tesco.com ===Full Ingredients=== Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Parfum, Acrylate/PEG-10 Maleate/Styrene Copolymer, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Disodium EDTA, Hexyl Cinnamal, Sodium Hydroxide, Linalool, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Triethylene Glycol, Benzyl Alcohol, Geraniol, Propylene Glycol, Coumarin, Sodium Benzoate, Alcohol Denat, Magnesium Nitrate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnolia Biondii Flower Extract, Ethyl Ester Of Hydrolyzed Silk, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Hexylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate.
Whilst on drive to save money I purchased this Tesco own brand Creme Bath as a cheaper alternative to the other branded products I usually buy. I was really amazed at the lovely scent and the bubbles it produced and now mostly buy this when doing my weekly food shop. At less than a quid it is an absolute bargain. I rarely buy the other branded bubble baths now. This does all you could want from a bubble bath - it smells nice, it produces lots of bubbles and it leaves your skin soft. Tesco Creme Bath is available in a variety of smells and colours but this one is definitely our family favourite. It is such excellent value for money, and if you too are looking to cut costs of your weekly family shop give it a go - you will be pleasantly surprised. I've tried other supermarket own brand creme and bubble baths but none are as good as this Tesco one, which is why I buy it time and time again. It's a regular on my shopping list.
When it comes to my weekly shopping I go with my mate to Tesco as I like collecting the points on my card in the main lol. The other week I stocked up my bathroom with a few essentials and one thing I was running low on was bath products as I use them daily as I have no shower and I also have my mate staying with me at the moment who keeps using all my stuff, not that I can complain too much as she's looking after me as I'm not too well at the moment and have neighbour trouble from hell lol! For this reason I opted to try make some savings here and there and instead of buying my usual Radox option which is almost always on offer at a pound a bottle in Tesco's I decided to save the extra 31p by buying this (and I did buy a couple of bath cremes from the range) so this was 69p for a large 1L size (and the only size I am aware this available in by the way). The Packaging: As I have just mentioned this comes in a 1L size and the bottle is see through plastic and slightly squeezy and has a twist on/off light blue cap to the top of it concealing the hole it pours from and then on the front of it, again in blue writing we are told what it is and who it is by. Then on the back of the product we are told a little about the product, the ingredients are listed as is the size stated and contact details for Tesco are given. This is rather cheap looking packaging I think, however for me its the product that counts the most and if your feeling a bit snobby about it you can always decant it into something else eh?! Using It: Well this white slightly glossy looking bath creme, blobs out of the bottle and you don't need to use very much of it under running water to release the gentle magnolia fragrance and it doesn't colour the water at all. It gives off a nice, thick and rich foam to the top of the water which stays put on my bath for a good hour as I like long, lazy soaks. The water doesn't feel particulary soft, I mean I can't feel a silk additive but its soft enough and the fragrance is relaxing too and rather feminine. After I get out of the bath and pat myself dry I am left with soft enough skin though this isn't particulary moisturising and I am left feeling nicely fragranced for a good few hours in a very gentle and clean way. All in all in this works out a very economical product indeed to use. The cost and the amount you need per bath is great though if you want something a little more moisturising I'd spend a little more and get something else however to be fair to it, it isn't skin drying! Only available in Tesco stores costing 69p a bottle. This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.
I don't tend to have many baths as generally I get 5 minutes to myself so it's a quick jump in the shower so when I do have the luxury of a bath I tend to use nice bath foams such as Radox and Badedas however when I went shopping and couldn't find a nice one on offer I decided to give this one a chance. The bat foam comes in a very simple bottle which is see through and allows you to see the white creamy liquid inside. On the front of the bottle you have the Tesco name along with the name of the product and the fragrance along with the claim it has added natural extracts in it all in different shades of blue. The bottle has a blue screw top cap on it and even though the bottle is so simple it is quite eye catching although it seems quite a manly bottle. On the back of the bottle you are told that it has been specially created to cleanse and hydrate the skin to leave it soft and smooth. There are warnings such as keeping away from contact with eyes and that you must rinse immediately if it happens and a very long list of ingredients. On opening the bottle the liquid smells lightly flowery but not too strong and is a quite nice smell, the liquid is actually not very thick so you need to be wary when pouring or you will use much more than is needed. The liquid foams nicely under running water and produces lots of bubbles and a lovely smell in the bathroom. After using this bath foam my skin did feel quite soft and lightly scented but the scent didn't last very long on my skin, I would say that my skin feel nicer when using a more expensive bath foam but considering this bottle cost me around £1 for a litre it is well worth the money for an everyday bath.
I love Tesco's crème silk bath range, which come in a variety of different fragrances but for me the nicest is the Magnolia silk crème bath. At only 80p per litre it is great for everyday use for all the family. (It used to be cheaper when I started using it at 48p but it has steadily risen to its current price since then. It is packaged in a see through plastic bottle which contains the white silk crème liquid inside. I was quite surprised on opening the bottle for the first time how thick it was, I was expecting it to be very runny for the price but not so it of quite substantial thickness. The crème bath once opened is beautifully fragranced and there is a definite magnolia smell to it. Instructions for use is to simply pour into running water. I do like a lot of suds and a full bath so I usually put in about ¼ of the bottle which sounds a lot but at 20p a bath is not too bad. Using that amount the bath crème produces a lot of suds and softens the water. The fragrance fills the bathroom and makes for a nice relaxing bath. My skin feels nice and soft and smooth after bathing with this and after drying the nice fragrance is still there. I can't really say how long the scent lasts after drying as I always moisturise and this takes away the smell immediately. I do use more expensive bubble baths from time to time but for everyday use this is a very nice one indeed at a very nice price.
Tesco Creme Bath Magnolia and Silk Description: Brand: Tesco / Type: Bath Cream / Oil Anyone who has read any of my previous reviews (thanks so much, I really appreciate all reads, rates and comments!) will already know that I love to try different beauty and hair products. I have favourites of course but also enjoy trying out new things. Recently I tried a different fragrance in this range and liked it a lot more than I had expected, so I was keen to try this one too. A one liter bottle of this bath creme will cost you £0.60. The bottle is clear allowing you to see the glossy white product inside. The fragrance of this bath creme is magnolia which is quite sweet, Mr Siamese finds the fragrance a little too sweet and sickly so this may be one for the ladies. The creme is quite thick and you don't need to use too much to end up with heaps of fluffy bubbles. The water definitely feel softened when you use this product, but the fragrance doesn't last on your skin after getting dried. I found this to be a bonus though because I didn't particularly like the magnolia and silk fragrance (does anyone know how companies capture the fragrance of silk?!) so was glad to get rid of the scent. Although this bath creme was okay for the money, I did find that it was a fragrance which became a bit cloying after being in the bath for more than a few minutes. It was slightly artificial and reminded me a little of air freshener. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a cheap product which also smelled cheap, so not something I would select for long relaxing baths in the future. On the plus side, this bath creme did create loads of fluffy bubbles so if you don't mind the fragrance, it is certainly good value for money. For me though, it wasn't a success and not something I would buy again.
Having tried some of the other products in the Tesco own brand bath and shower range, I thought I'd give this a try. I have a lot of baths and get through loads of bubble bath (especially being in a hard water area), so I was initially attracted by the price, only 55p for a whole litre (that's a really big bottle - much more than you get in Radox etc). The product comes in a clear plastic bottle which looks a bit 'budget' but hey, for 55p who cares? You can see through to the product inside which is pure white with a bit of a pearly sheen to it. The packaging is very simple - just the name of the product and some very basic info and a picture of a flower on the front, and some directions, ingredients etc on the back. It states that 'Tesco Magnolia and Silk Creme Bath has been specially created to cleanse and hydrate your skin as you bathe, helping to leave it feeling soft and smooth.' That's all you want from a bubble bath really - so did it work? Well I poured it under warm running water as recommended and it immediately foamed up and made loads of bubbles - very impressive. It also smelt lovely: mostly floral but also a little bit sweet, but not too overpowering. It was a very comforting, cosy smell which made me want to get straight in! The bubbles lasted well too, and felt nice and moisturising on my skin. When I got out of the bath and dried off, I was left with smooth and soft skin, and the fragrance lingered quite nicely too. I felt utterly relaxed and chilled out. All in all, this product is better than many that are three times the price, so for 55p I'll definitely pop this in my trolley again!
DESIGN The creme bath comes in a lovely plastic see through bottle, its mainly white with a simple but nice design occupying the front of it. This being a nice white flower. Its obvious too say but the first thing i noticed is that the bottle is quite shiny, lots of whiteness lol even the cap is white however this is made fancier with the nice decorative purple writing on the front. The back of the bottle has a short description explaining what it does written with black rather small writing yet not so small that you cant read it. It also has a very short part with instructions written in black on the back of it however thats all you need because pouring a bath is quite fool proof lol there's also a warning and then off course the ingredients. SCENT This smells lovely and relaxing its scent is magnolia and silk, from the moment you open the lid which is quite easy to open thanks to the easy to grip screw top lid, your hit with the magnolia fragrance. This is even more prominent once your pour it into your bath the lovely scent of magnolia fills the room. WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW? This creme bath includes natural extracts, there is a warning on the back which i am sure any one who has ever used creme bath already knows about but never the less i shall mention it. The warning tells you to avoid contact with eyes and that if contact occurs to rinse immediately with clean water. WHAT IS IT LIKE? Its a creamy, smooth liquid when you pour it into your bath you will see it produces quite a good amount of bubbles which is great. WHAT DOES IT CLAIM TO DO? This claims to cleanse and hydrate your skin as you bathe leaving it soft and smooth. DOES IT? Yes it does, i often use this creme bath and it comes in many different scents. This is my favorite as in my opinion it smells nicest, my skin is always soft and smooth after using this plus hydrated and off course very clean too although, i haven't used any creme bath that didn't leave my skin feeling nice and clean,thats sort of the whole point of them lol. Well aside from helping you to relax but enough about that it really does work and is a lovely bath product that guarantees a nice relaxing bath. DIRECTIONS The directions are very simple just pour into warm running water until your satisfied with the amount of bubbles. WHERE CAN YOU BUY IT? This is tesco's own brand so you can get it there. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? An amazing reasonable 55p considering its a 1 litre bottle. MY OPINION This stuff is lovely, very reasonably priced and it does exactly what it claims to do. Its as good as any other creme bath that you can buy, even the more expensive ones and in my opinion maybe even slightly better because of how much you get and for only 55p! It smells really nice and it makes for a very relaxing bath. Although it comes in various other fragrances this one is my favorite but there is one to suit everyone.
Again on my tesco brand mission I have decided to try the bubble bath and I have gone for the Tesco Crème Bath in Magnolia and Silk for 55p for 1 litre. The bubble bath comes in a clear plastic bottle with a white lid and the bubble bath itself is white in colour. On the front of the bottle it has Tesco written in the corner then Crème Bath - Magnolia and Silk - With natural Extracts and a small picture of a flower. On the back of the bottle it states:- Tesco Magnolia and silk creme bath has been specially created to cleanse and hydrate your skin as you bathe, helping to leave it feeling soft and smooth. It has directions of use (who the hell does not know how to use bubble bath). It has a warning of what to do if contact with eyes, Ingredients and the Tesco address and phone number. So for the product itself, well the bubble bath is quite a runny consistancy, but it only goes in the bath, so who cares. It does not really smell like magnolia but more like plain soap, but once it is in the bath water you cannot really smell anything (I am so rubbish with smells though). I only gave the bottle a quick tip and back up again and I have to say it produced a lot of bubbles (which I really like) - not straight away but more over time as the water kept running. I think you would only need to fill the lid up and tip that in your bath and that would be more than adequate. The bubbles also last whilst you are having a bath, as some bubble baths I have used in the past as soon as you get in the bubbles disappear. The bottle itself lasted me four weeks and that is with me using it, my little boy using it (he has baths every night) and my partner having the odd bath (me and my partner shower - just to clarify that we do wash). So for 55p this is a great bargain - and a little goes a long way. I cannot say if my skin felt smooth, soft and hydrated as I always use baby oil after my bath or shower, and by the time I have moisturised my little boy I really could not tell with him either (and just no point asking my partner). I will definitely keep on buying this product as it produces alot of bubbles and a bottle lasts a long time and for 55p who can moan.
