“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Bathing Roses „
For Christmas my mum and dad always do mark and myself a nice bath basket as one of our presents. My mum always says she can make mine pretty but marks isn't so easy, well men wouldn't appreciate bath flowers, especially mark! One thing she bought this time was Tesco Bath Roses, Mum actually took the flowers from their box and placed them over the top of my basket, they really did look pretty.
Tesco Bath Roses are sold in a box of 6. The bottom and sides of the box has a "Cath Kidston" look to it. Its pale blue with white spots. The top of the box is clear so you can see the six pink roses sitting inside, there is a small blue and white flowered label which says Floral Secrets Bathing Roses. Each rose weighs 10g and they are a very pretty pale pink colour. As you would expect they have a lovely rose fragrance, not over powering but sweet and delicate.
Each rose is made up of 6 layers each with 5 petals and they feel like strong paper before they go into the water. Its easy to pull the layers apart they are just sat inside each other.
To use the bath roses you simply drop them into a nice warm bath and swirl the water. I would advise at this point to separate the layers of the rose rather than place it in the water in one piece. When dropped into the water each layer floats on the top and at this point they look like little daisy heads. As they get wet the rose layers gradually expand into a soap like substance. At this point the bath really looks pretty with the water covered in pink flowers and smelling of roses. They do create a few bubbles although there's nothing on the box about it and its nothing like bubble bath.
The roses do eventually break up and they have a soapy slightly sticky feel to them, I find the roses have completely melted away before I get out of the bath but the fragrance doesn't really fade and can be smelt in the bathroom afterward. The roses don't leave my skin feeling particularly moisturised but they make no claims to, on the other hand they don't dry it out either. I personally use these when I'm having a nice long soak so they've fully melted before I wash. As I mentioned its better not to put a whole a rose in the bath without separating the layers as it will just go into a soggy pink clump like bubble gum.
As I mentioned I had these as a gift but I do know they are a Tesco product and at Christmas were round about £3.00. These make a pretty little gift and fragrance your bath with a delicate rose smell. I would certainly recommend them as a present, stocking filler or in my case a basket topper.
