I'm after a nice bubble bath (or at a push, bath soak...but not an oil). Willing to go up to about twenty quid very, very tops, but would prefer cheaper.

Also looking for a nice, rich body lotion. I have the Vaseline aloe one and a Garnier one for everyday use, but would like a really luxurious one for after the bath now and then.

I like the neal's yard ones.

Soap and Glory or Sanctuary from Boots smile

In terms of cream Vaseline Intensive care the white one rocks and I like Palmolive Milk and Honey - both cheap as chips but lovely

I think the Body Shop body butters are really good. I'm afraid bubble bath is not my thing, I squeeze in a bit of whatever shower gel I am using at the time!

I love Champneys Mediterranean fig milk, olive leaf and green tomato bubble heaven. About £12 for a biggish bottle from boots.

Elemis Rose and Jasmine.Pure Heaven and the most amazing smell.

I like SenSpa as an every day sort of bubble bath and bath salts.

Lovely smells like lavender, bergamot, patchouli and geranium or rose, lavender and cedar wood in the bath salts.

£6 ish a bottle/bag.

Sorry, meant to add that they also do body lotion (£6 ish too), but I haven't tried it yet as I am using a tea tree one from my health food shop at present which is not luxurious but is amazing for sensitive dry skin.

I will move onto the SenSpa one when I have finished the current one.

For me it's Laura Mercier all the way and Well worth the pennies. I get lots of compliments on how lovely it smells and that's just from bath and body cream. A little goes a long way and has been perfect even with my sensitive skin.

TeaAddict235 Wed 14-Jan-15 21:55:24

really like the boots botanicals body butter.

Also like Radox bath creams- the light beige one (can't remember the exact name).

I love Avon bubble bath. Reminds me of my younger years. And always Aveeno. Free from the GP.

HiawathaDidntBotherTooMuch Wed 14-Jan-15 22:36:13

Any of the Champneys bubble baths from boots are really lovely. £12 each, but usually on 3 for 2.

pinkfrocks Wed 14-Jan-15 22:37:37

I can't lie in bath stuff as it irritates my bits.
so it's shower gels only. REN Rose is my fave.

Clinique Body Butter is nice.
Cheapo- Neutrogena is my fave.

Watching with interest.

Current pleasure is one from body shop dh gave me for my birthday. Its red- cranberry maybe - in a tub and has a wooden ice cream spoon to get some out. Its like a jelly.

Yyyy to Laura Mercier even though they're more expensive.

SuperFlyHigh Sun 01-Feb-15 12:00:52

I love the champneys ones too and have tried the olive and another one.

The champneys one is great but I almost wish it wasn't in glass bottle (has to be recycled then).

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 01-Feb-15 12:37:48

None of the 'posh' body creams I've tried are anywhere near as good as Aveeno. Clarins stuff smells lovely, but the Aveeno works better.

I rarely buy expensive bubble baths tbh, as I don't think they are worth the money, but I really like Badedas, which is more expensive than my usual Radox/Simple but much cheaper than REN etc. For really cheap ones, I also think the Waitrose Essentials ones are pretty good.

Waitrose stick an organic range too, which is nice. I think it might be called 'Organic Surge.'

mimiasovitch Sun 01-Feb-15 12:38:40

I am a huge fan of Champneys body butters. Not at all spendy either.

SuperFlyHigh Sun 01-Feb-15 12:44:07

remus I forgot yes waitrose do organic surge, I try to get when on offer in waitrose. It's great stuff.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 01-Feb-15 12:51:27

stock not stick - 'scuse typos.

notnowImreading Sun 01-Feb-15 12:53:58

Badedas is the best bubble bath. I don't believe that anyone actually uses body lotion.

Notonaschoolnight Sun 01-Feb-15 16:39:28

Sainsburys mandara spa is lovely and developed by a higher end brand my favorites are the purple and the orange

cookoos Sun 01-Feb-15 16:46:42

glow lotion from soap and glory. smells lovely and is pearly pink so gives a bit of a shimmer also very easy to rub in so i always use this if i have bath/shower in the morning as body butters can be a bit of an effort when in a rush.

On the back of a Guardian review I have just ordered the SenSpa bath oil from Waitrose (less than £6). All the SenSpa stuff is on offer at the mo and the Nourishing Bath Soak looked good too (about £4 I think).
