We are nearly there with having our bathroom refitted, the one that was in our house when we moved in was really, utterly minging and I've not had a bath for 5 months (have crouched over a shower dribble in this time so am clean).

So, I'd like to treat myself to a few lovely new bathing products to celebrate. What would you buy? Thinking of bubble bath or bath oil, body scrub, maybe a face mask. Basically, if you have a lovely bath what products do you use?

Elemis (or elimis?)are absolutely gorgeous products and smell amazing. I would choose them...or if you like fruity products, try Pure Fiji. It is heavenly!

Ive spent a lot on bath products in my time, but my favourites are the champneys range which you can get in boots. Lovely, silky bubbles!

Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil is my favourite bath product.

This is lovely!

I use natural oils in my bath (lavender and frankincense mainly) as my skin can't tolerate SLS which is in everything bath related.

Ooh, great, a few in there I hadn't heard of, thank you. Love the look of the Ren and Cleopatra's Milk Bath smile

Happy, do you mean the Sanctuary in the orange lid containers? I really love the scent of these and use the body cream a lot after showering but some of the range strangely makes my skin feel like it's burning which is a bit alarming!!

Thanks for the advice, there's a few things in Organic Pharmacy I'd like to check out.

I second the Champneys range

Also like Jo Malone (expensive). How about Liz Earle?

Crutchlow35 Sun 16-Mar-14 08:43:21

Badedas from the supermarket or chemist

BeaLola Sun 16-Mar-14 10:39:06

The Champneys rose bath oil.

I love the Jo Malone bath oil - I tend to buy the cheaper option in the plastic bottles as opposed to the glass bottle after I dropped the latter on bathroom floor and it smashed-it was also hardly used ... Still mourning the loss ! My favourite smells are pomegranate noir and the fig one.

I also like the Aromatherapy Associates bath oils.

ShanghaiDiva Sun 16-Mar-14 11:00:35

Thann products smell gorgeous.

alwaysrunninginheels Sun 16-Mar-14 11:10:02

You could blow the budget on Laura mercier creme brûlée bath stuff. The bathing foam stuff with the stick to measure it out is gorgeous.

TheGrassIsSinging Sun 16-Mar-14 11:12:30

My favourite bath oil is Tisserand Detox Bath Oil. Lovely. A little bottle (100ml) but goes a long way.

Neal's Yard bath oils are also lovely and go a long way.

If you want bubbles, I really rate Waitrose Tea Tree and Apple bath foam. Its got a lovely light, apple-ey scent and is really bubbly.

detergenthands Sun 16-Mar-14 13:51:26

Origins Way of the Bath Matcha Tea Bath Soak is really lovely, energising and smells divine, leaves skin lovely.

Molton Brown Energising Sea Moss Bath Soak is good too - ozoney and seaweedy.

Ren Rose Otto bath oil is nice for an evening bath.

Jo Malone good for florals and Laura Mercier stuff is lovely if you like to come out smelling like a patisserie smile

jumpinghoops Sun 16-Mar-14 16:15:23

Wow, great. Loads of recommendations. As luck would have it I have my first day off from the children in a long time tomorrow so will be checking all these out. Thanks all for your great suggestions smile

Chanel no 5 bath bubbles (better than the oil which smells all wrong)
THis works lavendar and vetivert bath salts.
Santa Maria novella pomegranate bath salts and carnation oil

EggInABap Sun 16-Mar-14 16:28:35

I really like the body shop honey bath melt at the moment. I also have the ren rose oil but don't really rate it, makes the bath smell nice but doesn't 'feel' luxurious so for the price I was disappointed.

Artandco Sun 16-Mar-14 16:36:11

Dr organics. They sell them in holland and Barrett. The coconut ones nicest imo

jumpinghoops Sun 16-Mar-14 22:45:32

Beast, I've just stayed in a house with someone who had the no. 5 bath soap. That smelt divine! I can see I'll be making a few purchases maybe!

Beastofburden Sun 16-Mar-14 22:57:40

Mmmmm smile

BigPawsBrown Sun 16-Mar-14 23:06:01

I am queen of baths.

I really rate lush on the whole - good quality ingredients, unusual scents. Their bubble bars go really far - four ish baths. Recommend creamy candy and karma.

I also like the laura Mercia creme brûlée honey bath, but it is £30 shock

I use glamglow mud masks - BEST face mask I have ever used, you can see it change colour where it draws the oil out.

I hardly use oils because I was my hair in the bath, but aromatherapy associates are amazing smelling

HappyAsEyeAm Mon 17-Mar-14 08:47:51

Oooooh BigPawsBrown do you use the glamglow mud mask in the black pot or in the white pot? I have dry skin but an oily nose and am trying to decide which one would be best. Its expensive but the reviews are universally good.

BigPawsBrown Mon 17-Mar-14 15:32:02

Black pot. I got the one on amazon for £35 shock it is pricy but have probably used it ten times and it's only about half used, and I do notice a real, tangible difference in my skin!

HappyAsEyeAm Mon 17-Mar-14 15:34:09

And what type of skin do you have BigPaws? I am v tempted by this product. I've been looking for a mask for ages.

jumpinghoops Mon 17-Mar-14 15:55:23

Ooooh yes, need a mask. My skin is a mess sad If I have oily, congested, knackered, old-before-my-time skin, will it make me fresh and youthful and gorgeous ;)
