Conscious Skincare Sweet Orange & Frangipani Bath Soak


Conscious Skincare Sweet Orange & Frangipani Bath Soak* - £15.99

Conscious Skincare is an organic skincare brand from Wales. All of their products are handmade to the very highest quality. Every ingredient in their products serves a useful purpose, none are added for colour, fragrance, bleaching or filling. If you have sensitive skin I always think it's best to look for organic products. That way you know there's no nasty chemicals or preservatives that can irritate your skin. My skin can be a bit fussy when it comes to bath products. I often react to shower gels & body scrubs so I do have to be careful when trying out new products. Knowing the philosophy behind the brand & the care put into the production of Conscious Skincare's products I was rather keen to try their Sweet Orange & Frangipani Bath Soak. This bath soak is completely free from synthetic preservatives, SLS, parabens & phthalates. My eczema-prone skin has had absolutely no problems with it. It has also been fully approved by the Vegetarian Society & is cruelty free. However the main attraction has to be the utterly delicious orange scent!

Normally I think of citrus scents as being refreshing & invigorating but this is quite the opposite. This is a very relaxing bath soak. It combines sweet orange, frangipani, fragonia & sandalwood essential oils for a warm & sensual olfactory experience. It kinda reminds me of Hartley's Orange Jelly which is definitely no bad thing! I love sweet scents but this is also quite sophisticated. Frangipani essential oil can also make you feel very calm & peaceful and has good antioxidant properties. I love anything to do with aromatherapy as I really do think that smells can have such an impact on your wellbeing. I'm pretty sure I've got some kind of flu or chest infection at the minute (I know great timing, just before Christmas!) and I've been aching all over. I've been filling my bath with some of this every night and it's really helped my body to feel more rested. As you pour in the orange liquid it creates a light foam and the gorgeous scent completely fills the bathroom. Soaking in a bath full of this stuff is such a relaxing experience. As soon as I get out of the bath after using this I'm more than ready for my bed. It's a lovely choice if you or anyone you know is in need of a little bit of TLC. I know many people prefer baths with lots of bubbles but I think something like this is much better if you're looking for an indulgent & luxurious bath product that won't irritate your skin.

Another nice thing about Conscious Skincare is that they offer you the option of having your purchase presented in an 'eco-natural' 100% recycled cardboard gift tube or box with a ribbon finish. It's a brilliant way of getting around the nightmare of gift wrapping & you're doing your bit for the environment at the same time. My tube has these cute reindeer for the festive season but they have a few other ribbon choices available so you can decorate your tube for any special occasion. It's such a sweet idea & fits in well with their brand ethos. If you're a fan of natural, organic brands then Conscious Skincare's products are well worth taking a look at.
