I got this is my British Beauty Blogger Beauty Box a few months ago and it’s definitely not something I’d have picked up otherwise. The packaging doesn’t appeal and the scent.. lemon? The bottle is glass which was a surprise.. is it just me or does it look like cheap plastic? Even having received it I probably still wouldn’t have tried it had it not been endorsed by Jane (BBB) herself but she said it was fantastic do I had to give it a go, didn’t I?
First of all the scent.. SO strong, it’s like stepping in to a liquid lemon sherbet.. bizarre. A little sickly and lemsipy for my liking but I’m aware there are other fragrances available so I wont hold that against it. The second bizarre thing I noticed was the colour it turned my bath water.. bright yellow.. it looked like, well.. I wont say what it looked like. Not massively inviting and may be difficult to explain if someone walked in on you in the tub.
As bath oils go it was okay, it left that film on my skin which it what I’d expect but the scent did nothing to refresh or uplift me and the whole neon yellow water thing really didn’t do it for me either. All in all it was a bit of a wash (pardon the pun) but I do have a rather exciting bath soak on the way to me so don’t think this will be last of the bathing products from me.. I feel like I spend at least 20% of my time in the bath or bathing someone else (the children, not the husband) so anything to makes that slightly more interesting/enjoyable is something I want to try.
