The body shop candied ginger bubble bath
I always like to stock up on seasonal scents for over the festive season, and tend to find that many of the Body Shop products are great value for money when they are in the sale.
This one cost I think around £3.50 for 400ml of the bubble bath, and when I bought it online I also qualified for free postage so even better.
It comes packaged in a plastic bottle with a flip up/press to close lid. The label around the bottle looks suitably festive with an orange patterned front with all of the information and instructions written around the label. Already I like it as it will look good on the side of the bath over Christmas.
The product looks orange when viewed through the bottle but I think this is due in no small part to the fact that the bottle is orange. When I pour some out it is in fact clear, and of a nicely thick consistency. Because of this consistency and the relatively small dispensing hole, it doesn't just pour out of the bottle, but rather the bottle does need a little squeeze to get the bubble bath out. This is good because I really don't like products which are wasted because too much comes out of the bottle.
It does have a definite ginger smell which is immediately discernible when the product is poured under warm running water. I like the smell of ginger but given that it is quite strong, for anyone disliking this smell it would be a no. the smell gives a nice warm feeling to the bathroom when I have poured it into the bath, and it is very reminiscent of Christmas and warm Christmas food. This smell lingers in the bathroom for a little time after bathing but doesn't linger on my skin so I am free to apply perfume, although I do feel it is more of a warming night time before going to bed bathing product.
The bubble bath supplies me with a good quantity of bubbles which is good, and especially when I don't have to use a lot of the product to achieve a bath full of bubbles. It is nicely moisturising and cleaning and after a bath whilst I don't feel especially refreshed (I don't think this is the idea) I do feel all warm and cosy. It has been suitable for everyone in the family so unless someone has very sensitive skin I think this would be fine for most people. The only thing which makes it unsuitable for children is the fact that if it gets into the eyes it does sting, and cold water should be applied to the eyes.
An aromatic and effective bubble bath which I would recommend.
