Can body wash be used as bubble bath?

So if I buy a bottle of bodywash can I use it as a bubble bath, or does it not work that way?

I ask because I have a whole load of shower gel upstairs waiting to be used, but I really like the look of the Molton Brown bodywash collection on Groupon today so I was wondering if they are dual use...?

Well I do . Not so many bubbles tho.

Thanks Trumpton, do you get much fragrance from them?

struggling not to make a joke about your username considering we are talking about making bubbles in the bath grin

grin yes I think fragrance is about the same , shower gel is designed to be rinsed off in the shower so should be stronger iyswim .
My name is definitely a play on my IBS , grin again !

Does it work the other way round? I kind of hate baths, but keep getting bath stuff from an auntie!

It's exactly the same stuff in my opinion. I use bubble bath as shower gel and vice versa.

Yup ... What naice said

I use both for both, so long as it's not really crappy quality.

I used to use either or for both things when I had a bath. Now i've only a shower, i just use both as shower wash and ive never encountered any issues

I use it for both and it works fine. I use really cheap shower gel too!
