I don't usually have a lot of extra time on my hands for an indulgent soak in the bath, but when I do manage some "me time" you better believe I pull out all the stops. Not only does a loofah, body scrub and an essential oil or two accompany me, but I also like to try out a new product in the hopes of creating the ultimate tub of bubbles.
I've been reading about the new Molton Brown Davana Blossom Foaming Bath Oil for some time now. It is said to have a spicy and floral aroma that can whisk all of your problems (and germs) away. Still, $67 per bottle just seems like pop-star prices. Fortunately, I was sent some to try and I thought I'd share my experience with you.
To find out how this purple potion stacks up,
Pros: The smell is an intoxicating mixture of davana blossom, raspberry and concentrated star flower oil which makes your bath smell and feel like an elaborate Indian steam room. In addition, the foam lives up to its promise (yay)! By adding two capfuls to running water, the top layer of your tub will fill with bountiful bubbles.
Cons: Because it's a cleansing oil, it doesn't wash away like a soap. While some people might like a filmy layer on their skin for moisturizing purposes, I found it to be a little bit greasy.
