With water restrictions in Cape Town, I opt to take showers instead of baths, because it’s more efficient and I feel it is quicker, which means saving water. Because of the restrictions, I limit taking a bath to when I feel really stressed and need to unwind/relax. So far, I’ve taken a few baths with the Pink Cosmetics Floral Bath Soak, and I am ready to give my feedback. Claims (from Pink Cosmetics) :
“Indulge yourself in a bath with real flowers, let your skin be infused with powerful antioxidants and skin-softening nutrients. Breathe in the aroma and let go every trace of tension of the day…”
Ingredients (from Pink Cosmetics) :
“Mini Rose buds, Erica flowers, Chamomile Flowers, Jasmine Flowers, Lavender flowers , Patchouli hibiscus and Oris root powder.”
When I first opened it, the smell reminded me instantly of lemon grass leaves – better known in the Cape Malay Islamic Community as “rampies”. It smells like “rampies” mixed with lavender and other lovely smelling leaves/petals. It also contains chamomile leaves, which is very calming. Pink Cosmetics suggests using the product for bathing, facial steaming or as a foot soak. I personally haven’t tried using it as a facial steam because I get extremely claustrophobic, but I have tried it as a bath and foot soak and really enjoyed using them both ways.
The floral soak didn’t irritate my skin at all, as it is 100% natural! The only thing I need to mention is the petals can sort of stick to your skin and tickle a bit. I didn’t mind, but if you’re someone who doesn’t like things floating about in your bath, don’t fret, because I have a solution for you! I have a little tea bag strainer that came with a mug I bought not too long ago. It has a little open and close latch, so I would suggest getting something like that and putting the petals in there, then adding it into your bath.
When I was done bathing, I felt calm, less stressed, and slept really well that night.
If you’re like me and you enjoy aromatic “therapeutic” products, I would definitely suggest you give this floral soak a go. It is 100% natural and smells real nice. I love that you can use it for bathing, soaking your feet, or steaming your face. Talk about a triple threat!
I must say guys, I am completely and utterly impressed by all of the products Pink Cosmetics sent me to try. Every product comes packaged so nicely and with such care. I still cannot believe these products are hand made. I’ve reviewed the Pink Cosmetics Solid Brush Cleaner here, Designer Fragranced Bath Bombs here, and Yummy Sugar Lip Scrub here.
