Bathing flowers? They’ve never really been on my radar, I prefer showers and the occasional Lush bath, but I’ve never tried bathing flowers. My auntie sent me these a couple of months ago and was quite intrigued and excited to show you.
These are the Heather & Ivory Secret Paradise Bathing Flowers, it’s a bit of a mouthful I know, and these retail at £10 on ASOS. The first thing I noticed about these are how intricately made they are. They are literal works of art. The detail is astounding. Each flower is made for a thin layer of soap (I guess?) and some have multiple layers creating the gorgeous flowers you see above.
Before opening, I expected these to have flower smells: rose, jasmine, etc, something your grandma might use. However, that is not the case, these have such a desirable smell, one that could rival some Lush bath bombs high praise indeed! The flowers have a citrusy scent, with a hint of soap. The good thing is though that these don’t feel soapy or sticky, it’s only when they meet water do they show this side; out of water they look almost like felt.
Now the big question is: are these a product for me? I’m going to surprise myself here and say yes they probably are. While I am partial to the odd Lush bath bomb, these add elegance to a bath, now there is a phrase I never thought I’d say, surrounded by candles, with these floating in the bath I can imagine being in a spa, what better feeling is there?
So there are my thoughts on bath flowers. Have you ever tried them? Will you think about trying them? Or do you plan to stick with trusty old Lush bath bombs?
