I am not a huge fan of having a bath, I am more of a shower person so last year when my mum brought me Dr Hauschka Lemon Bath it took me ages before I finally tried it out.
To use, you add 1-2 teaspoons to you hot bath and make sure the windows and door is closed so as not to let the fragrance escape. The fragrance is really strong, I love sweet smells and this definitely does it for me, as soon as you open the bottle, the smell of lovely, juicy lemons hits you. The lemon fragrance is meant to refresh your mind and body. When I do occasionally have a bath, I like it to be relaxing and make me nice and sleepy ready for bed but I found that this did the opposite, it seemed to actually make me refreshed and awake!
The product is a deep yellow colour and it comes in a nice glass bottle, looking quite elegant on the side, when people come round quite often the ask what it is and like to have a good 'sniff'.
Apparently lemons are really good for dull and oily skin, I tend to have dry skin, particularly on my legs, and this did act as a really good moisturiser.
The cost of the bottle is £17.95 for a 150ml bottle, I find this to be a little expensive but I suppose because you are only using up to 10ml every time you bath, you will get at least 15 baths out of a bottle.
Overall, it is a nice bath oil, smells really nice but I wont be re-buying I'm afraid but I would give 3 out of 5 stars due to the gorgeous smell.
Thanks for reading
I was given a gift from a friend last Christmas which contained a couple of Dr Hauschka bath products. I love to use a bath oil/bubble bath that has a really strong smell to it. I actually use a lot of original source products as I find they have such a powerful smell to them it can be really invigorating. So I was pretty excited to be able to try these bath products from a trusted and upmarket brand.
The product comes in yet another rather unexciting and cheap looking bottle from this brand. I really have an issue with their design and even if the product was amazing I'd be fairly reluctant to give it as a gift to someone who had not used the brand before because it looks so rubbish. I think when you pay a lot for something you expect an overall high quality experience and you just don't get this from the functional and bland packaging.
The lemon bath is an oil product which you use in much the same way you would a bubble bath - add it when the water is running and then let it do its own thing. The oil is yellow in colour and smell very distinctly of lemon - it really does smell very powerful so I had high hopes! Obviously you don't get bubbles with the product because it is an oil, it does make the water slightly cloudy and sometimes you can see particles of oil on the top of the water. You are meant to add 1-2 tsps to the bath but frankly who measures how much they use? I tend to only use a small amount because if the bath becomes too oily it can effect my hair when washed in the water making it oily. Obviously if you use less there is less of a smell - so it is a bit of a catch 22. I resorted to just using the product when I was having a relaxing bath rather than an everyday bath. This worked far better as you could add a lot more oil and get the lemony smell. The smell is incredible, it really does smell punchy and sour like fresh lemons. If you add too little you get a lemonade smell, sugary and a little synthetic so you definitely need to get the balance right.
The oil is designed to improve circulation and reduce cellulite. I can't say I noticed any difference but then I am only 22 and perhaps if you were aware of these issues then a change might be more noticeable. It may not necessarily do what it says but there are many other benefits. Adding the oil to your bath is thoroughly relaxing, the smell is incredible, it feels luxurious, it hydrates skin and you leave feeling very fresh and clean.
It is worth the £18 price tag for 150 ml though? I do think this bottle would last you quite a while, I tended to use it once a week for a relaxing bath so I wouldn't bee too put off by the price as I reckon this could last you near enough a year of use. Obviously you can't use wildly large amounts and this dampens the luxurious feel for me a little bit. I think part of the reason I like it so much is that I didn't actually pay for it...perhaps it would feel like like a treat if you had splashed out for it.
A treat for you skin but not for your bank balance.
If you have read a few of my previous reviews you may well be aware of my use of the Dr Hauschka range of bodycare products. There are a wide range of wierd and wonderful treatments, some are designed to treat certain areas of your body, but their Lemon Bath is designed for the whole of your body.
Lemon Oil will - as far as Dr Hauschka claims, improve circulation, reduce cellulite and generally give you an inspiring experience. I have to agree with the final claim, as I have felt a lot better about things after a bath in the Dr Hauschka Lemon Bath, but I am undecided about the other two points as it is difficult to notice such things over a short period of use of this product.
Dr Hauschka do brand their products a little bit clinical for my liking, though I think this can give confidence to the user as it is quite professional indeed. The small glass vial contains enough product for dozens of baths, the 150ml size being generous enough. Costing £19 for this quantity is a little on the high side, but this is expected of Dr Hauschka products as you are getting a lot more than a run-of-the-mill bubble bath after all!
The Lemon Bath does smell very citrusy and I immediately sensed the zesty lemon as I removed the cap. As this is bath oil then you should not expect any bubbles, but once I get into the bath I notice the presence of the lemon oil straight away on my skin. It doesn't feel oily in a bad way, but it soon smoothes and softens my skin. I like to keep the door and window closed when I use the Lemon Bath, as this intensifies the fragrance of the lemon as I soak. Lemon Oil is suitable for all skin types, so it won't dry out already dry skin.
After the bathing experience in the Lemon Bath I noticed my skin feel softer and I also felt more refreshed and lively afterwards. This product has had a positive effect on me, but I can imagine the same results as I get with Radox, for example. The price is a little bit expensive, and although it is versatile as it can be used to wash your face with (just add a few drops to the sink water) it is still overpriced. Overall I have to award three stars as the product did have a positive effect on me, I just wonder if Dr Hauschka are trying to make this a product to appeal on scent and not results.
After a long day of work or if you are tired a bath with Dr.Hauschka lemon bath is a real treat. The scent of lemon makes you feel more awake and gives new energy. The refreshing scent of essential lemon oil activates according to the manufacturer you from head to toe. It stimulates the body and is refreshing. The refreshing bath strengthens the connective tissue and stimulates the skin's own functions and gives vitality to body and mind.
Lemon grass, when I hear the name of this plant, I always think of exotic places as Thailand, in Thai cooking because it is used frequently. The manufacturer recommends two teaspoons of bath oil added to the running water. This is to prevent you from slipping when you step in the bath. If you have really tired feet, heavy legs, you can use this oil in a foot bath and it relieves heaviness in the legs.
The bottle is clear glass and has a white screw cap. The label is predominantly white, with blue features Dr.Hauschka bath. Just a simple bottle without too much fuss. On the label will find the brand and product name. The bottle has a capacity of 150 ml. The bottle is again packed in a cardboard box, it is predominantly white and looks just like the label on the bottle. Only found here on the side is the product information and ingredients of the product. Also there is a very clearly written leaflet.
The color of this bath oil is yellow, and as you might already suspect smells of lemon. If you smell the bottle the smell is very heavy, but when dosed to the water is added, it is refreshing, and definitely not dominant.
This was a delicious treat product. A bath with this bath oil is refreshing and relaxing. This is really a great product is use when it's warm. Also my skin felt after using soft and supple. Also with a bottle of 150ml it can last about 20 times. It's one of the better products of Dr.Hauschka.
I like lemons. I like lemon meringue pie and lemon flavoured sorbet and I usually find it a nice refereshing smell overall. For this reason, I was keen to try the Dr Hauschka Lemon Bath oil. I had recently tried the Sage veriety of this brand and I wasn't impressed at all to be honest, but I was willing to give this a go.
The small 150ml glass bottle costs around £16 which is a massive amount to pay for a lemon scented bath, I personally think. My other half is a big fan of this range (it was Lush products a couple of years ago, and I thought THEY were expensive, but it's nothing compared to the cost of this range!).
I added approximately 2 teaspoons as directed, to my running bath water. I closed the windows and the doors as told by my wife, in order to keep the smell inside our little bathroom. I immersed my old bod into the water and LOVED IT!
You have to actually try this bath oil to really appreciate the smell and the feel. The oil isn't greasy on my skin at all and although I cannot say it did anything for my cellulite (as it's supposed to) - I don't think I have cellulite anyway, being a great hairy bloke, but it did definitely make my skin feel a lot softer and smoother but not oily in the slightest.
The smell of this bath oil is really intense and fresh and will waken you up. It would be nice to use probably for a morning bath if you want to feel revived, but I personally wouldn't recommend you use it last thing at night or you might not sleep so well.
It is hellishly expensive but this is probably my favourite one in the range I have tried so far. Four star award.
WHAT IS IT?
A lemon infused bath oil by Dr Hauschka, suitable for oily skin this oil promises to refresh your skin and invigorate your mind.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
This is the best and nicest of the Dr. Hauschka bath oils in my opinion. The lemon fragrance is natural, completely different to the lemon products you can buy in Lush or Body Shop. The bottle advises you to use 1 or 2 teaspoons per bath but I've found you need at least three times this amount to get the full fragrance and benefit of the oil.
The oil mixes in with the warm water easily and you're not left with puddles of oil on top of the water, the fragrance envelopes the whole bathroom and is most effective in a hot bath as the steam will carry the lemon fragrance to every corner of the room. This lemon is a very refreshing fragrance, too refreshing for the bath as that is where I like to relax but you can also use this in the shower just by stepping out from under the spray and applying to your body with a non porous cloth.
Whenever I bath in this oil I love how the lemon fragrance clings to my skin, it gets slightly sweeter as time goes on and can be smelt on my skin for up to an hour. This oil isn't a cleanser so you'll need to use a body wash to wash with, the oil will leave your skin soft and moisturised though and also helps to calm down any redness or irritation you may be experiencing.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Last Christmas I was given a small metal tin containing several different files of Dr Hauschka bath oils. My absolute favourite has to be the lavender bath oil. However I also enjoyed using the other scents, one of which was a very natural smelling lemon oil.
Dr Hauschka is a very upmarket beauty brand with price tags to match! It is often used in beauty salons where the products can be purchased. It is also available to purchase from many online sites and it is always worth looking around for the best price. Dr Hauschka lemon bath costs around £18 for a 150 ml bottle. So is it worth it?
My small glass file contained enough oil for about 6 baths, although the full size bottle will obviously last a lot longer. The oil is lemon in colour as you would hope! This is bath oil so don't expect any bubbles with this product! The directions tell you to add about 1-2 teaspoons of oil into a warm bath, keeping doors and windows closed to prevent the aroma from escaping. In reality I found that I needed a lot more oil than stated to get the scent of the lemon. The scent of lemon once enough oil has been added is amazing! I have found some lemon fragrances smell synthetic, but this oil really does smell of fresh lemons!
Dr Hauschka says that using lemon oil will improve circulation, reduce cellulite and give you an uplifting experience. I really can't say I have noticed my cellulite magically disappearing but then I am a realist! However this oil does made me feel awake and so I guess the uplifting claim is correct! Lemon oil is really good to use on oily skin although is suitable for all skin types. I have dry skin and using the oil didn't dry my skin out.
In addition to using this oil in the bath, it can be used as a cool compress in hot weather. Simply soak a flannel in cold water with a few drops of lemon oil added to the water and massage your face and body. I used this in the south of France during a heat wave last year and found it really helped to cool me down. It can also be used on a warm flannel to massage your body to help get rid of cellulite. At the end of a tiring day it is really refreshing to wash your face in warm water to which a few drops of lemon oil have been added.
Overall I really love the fresh lemon scent of this oil; although I have found that I needed to add considerable more oil than was suggested! This is a very expensive product and with that in mind I don't think I can justify buying it for myself! However I would be very happy to receive a bottle as a present!
For Oily Skin / Lemon Bath contains essential oil of lemon which refreshes your mind and body. The bath concentrates support the other skin care products / Lemon is very good for oily, dull skin.
