As soon as I saw this absolutely ingenious creation, I knew I had to get my hands on a tub. Being a self proclaimed professional bather, means that I have very high expectations with my bath products and they have to be exceptionally good to impress me. The Bathory allows you to create your own customised bath soak from the options of ‘Bask’, ‘Soothe’ or ‘Detox’. Each is specially formulated and hand blended in the UK to provide you with your perfect bath. Bask is a bath packed with 3 oils of your choices, minerals and rich salts to provide a relaxing experience. Soothe is full of hydrating honey, buttermilk and oatmeal, perfect for dryer skin. Whereas, Detox is filled with rhassoul clay to draw out toxins and pure Epsom Salts. All the ingredients used in your customised soak are natural, pure and organic meaning you get the best possible bath.
For my Detox soak, not only did it contain Epsom salts which are perfect on achy muscles and uplifting your mood, I also choose Bergamot. Which is known for its uplifting mood properties and fresh, fruity smell. As well as this, I thought it would be nice to contrast with the soothing and relaxing smell of Lavender, and the sultry, calming smell of Ylang Ylang.
Making the full list of ingredients….
‘Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts), Sodium Chloride (Dendritic Salts), Moroccan Lava Clay, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil, Citrus bergamia (Bergamot) Oil, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Oil, Linalool*, Limonene* (*Occurs naturally in essential oils)’
Everything that is recognisable and perfectly safe to use in the bath. As well as being natural, it is all tested on humans, double plus in my books! The packaging is incredible and it gives you ideas on how to reuse it too, which I really liked as it’s such a shame to throw everything away. It looks incredibly inviting on the bathroom shelf and made me want to use it almost immediately.
So, how does it work? Well, it’s pretty simple. You just pick the type of bath you want, which three oils and there you have it! Perfect for gifts to yourselves or anyone who loves baths. On the back it states how much to use to get the most from your bath and it instructs to use a full tub for the best bath you’ll ever have. Failing that, it says to use half a tub for the perfect quantity in your bath. Or for a little pick me up, use a quarter to really reap the benefits.
I decided to go all out and put half the tub in, which for someone who is normally quite sparing with products, it took a little coaxing. However, I soon poured half the tub in and I waited to feel different…..I carried on waiting for a little while whilst I noticed the water become noticeably softer and my legs felt silkier by the second. I couldn’t really smell too much after it had hit the water, and it didn’t make me feel uplifted, or even impressed. Sure, it felt amazing on my legs, but at £18 for a tub, making that a £9 bath, I really did expect a lot more…
