The Daily Soothe Bath Float from Soap and Glory

I picked up The Daily Soothe Bath Float from a recent blog challenge and it is one Soap and Glory product I had not tried from the range.  I'm not going to lie, Sugar Crush is my absolute favourite scent from Soap and Glory and given that Bath Float is scented with Mist you Madly, my second favourite scent, I knew I was going to love it.

Described by Soap and Glory as "Our new super-soothing, pre-bedtime foamy tub float is seductively scented, intensely relaxing, delightfully deluxe with luxurious long-lasting suds and sleep-inducing, muscle-relaxing and aphrodisiacal actives" it does smell incredible and is a perfect treat for some self-indulgent bath time.

To use you Scoop up a handful of The Daily Smooth and then swirl it under warm running water until it bubbles up. As soon as it comes into contact with warm (not hot) water, the pink pearlesque liquid turns into foamy bubbles and quickly fills the bath.  If like me you like bubbles in your bath, the this will not disappoint, you get lots of them.  Once in the bath, surrounded by the scent of Mist you Madly and it does make you want to drift off right there and then, it is so relaxing.


This is a great edition to my bath time routine and even the mister has taken a liking to it (sadly) and costing just £8 for a 300ml tube, it lasts for ages.  So next time you are in Boots struggling to what buy on a 3 for 2 offer (ha as if) then take a look at Soap & Glory because this was the best buy for ages!

Drift Away - Temple Spa

Those who read my blog often enough will know how much I adore having a hot bath once or twice a week, a chance to relax and chill out whilst closing out the outside world, forgetting the stress and strain of the day whilst soaking up a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.

Drift Away by Temple Spa is described as being a 'Relaxing Bathing and Massage Oil' which can be used on directly on the skin or added to a bath for instant calm and tranquility.

"The most luxurious chill-out treatment ever! DRIFT AWAY is a must for when you need to really wind down and have your moment of peace and calm. Applied straight onto the skin for an aromatherapy massage, or with a capful drizzled into the bathtub; these deliciously fragrant oils will help you chill out and relax, especially when you find it hard to switch off"

Not only does it sound amazing, it absolutely is. Firstly it is packed full of essential oils such as:

  • Dill Seed Oil which helps to overcome the feeling of being overwhelmed and it helps to ease the mind and calm headaches.
  • Frankincense which also has a wonderfully calming effect on the mind and is said to be an excellent oil for meditating
  • Jojoba Oil which has a structure that closely resembles that of your own skin sebum, making it an excellent moisturizer and ideal for all skin types.
  • Lavender Oil which is known for its ability to sooth and calm the nerves, relieve tension and nervous exhaustion in general. It is also one of my favourite scents for relaxation and I find it helpful for drifting off to sleep.
  • Geranium Oil which is described as being an uplifting oil which has a great all-over balancing effect on the mind and is said to help to relieve feelings of stress and anxiety
Add to those oils some Patchouli, Sesame, Myrrh, Galbanum, Avocado Oil and Petitgrain and you have something that is just absolutely amazing. All of those oils together create a scent which brings about instant relaxation, like the scent you get when you walk into a spa that specialises in aromatherapy treatments, it is just divine and when using it, all you need is a few drops into running bath water.

So if you are wanting to try something that is as relaxing and as wonderfully scented as Drift Away, then look no further than HERE to purchase some for yourself.

Rituals Jasmine Dream Candle

I love candles, they create such a relaxing atmosphere for me that I tend to have a few dotted about the house (though I never leave them to burn unattended).  

At the minute I am burning Jasmine Dream, a candle from Rituals which was a gift from someone that I work with.  I love the packaging on this candle, once you remove the lid, the part which encases the candle opens out to reveal more information about the scent.

It retails for £19.50 which you can see HERE and for your money you get 50 hours of burn time and the most amazing scent comes to life just a few minutes after the wick has been lit.  The glass jar that the candle is housed in also lights up once the candle is alright adding to the look.

Rituals describe this candle as follows:


Jasmine Dream combines the relaxing and harmonising power of Jasmine blossoms with the calming properties of Ylang Ylang, the ‘flower of flowers’.

This candle smells totally divine and whilst I normally associate being able to relax with a Lavender scent, this candle does just a good a job at creating a relaxing environment with the most amazing scent to go with it.

I would definitely buy more candles from the Rituals range and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this candle again.

Have you ever used a candle from Rituals?  
What candle do you burn to help relax?

Mint Thé Refreshing Bath & Shower Therapy by Bodhi

A few months ago I was lucky enough to win Sandra from Beauty Balm's Summer Giveaway, see the post here and since that win I think I have completely fallen in love with the Bodhi Product especially the Mint Thé Refreshing Bath & Shower Therapy.


Mint Thé Refreshing Bath & Shower Therapy by Bodhi

I am new to Bodhi products, I had at the time only read about them across the Bloggersphere and never tried anything from the range, so trying something for the first time is always quite exciting.  Given the following description from Bodhi:

Mint Thé Refreshing Bath & Shower Therapy by Bodhi

"Rejuvenate the body and mind with our revitalising fusion of Peppermint, Marjoram and Frankincense. This is not for the faint hearted – get your skin and senses ready for an instant burst of life! Skin is highly refreshed and rejuvenated, cleansed but never taut or dry. All skin types, especially dull or oily. Great for after sports"

All I can say to you is that it is simply amazing. If you want something to wake you up in a morning when you have a shower, well it certainly does that with both the Peppermint and Spearmint working together to wake you up and alert your senses, not only that but they also work to boost your circulation and if you have dry skin, they help to nourish. There are a whole host of other essential oils within this product too, such as:

  • Frankincense - is a calming ingredient which can help soothe and relieve muscle aches and pains.  It also rejuvenates the skin
  • Marjoram helps to relieve stress and like Frankincense helps to calm and soothe as it has good muscle relaxant properties
  • Lavender & Rosemary whilst both have antiseptic properties but also have other uses such as -  Lavender tones and revitalises the skin, so if like me you can be prone to oily skin it can be useful.  Rosemary on the skin helps to ease congestion, puffiness and swelling as well as improving your circulation.
  • Lactic Acid helps to rejuvenate as well as help with anti-ageing.
Naturally there are many more essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, May Chang, Thyme and finally Clove, all of which you can read by visiting the website.

As well using this in the shower, you can use it in the bath which I have done on quite a few occasions and put simply it is so relaxing I almost fall asleep everytime I use it.  

For more information on this product or anything else in the Bodhi range you can find them HERE and this particulatly product retails at £23 for 250ml and it is worth every single penny!  They also only test their products on humans and not on animals!
