My first week of work comes to an end today and I need a relaxing bath pronto! How a new job drains you eh, that hit back to reality after a while of being a bit of a bum has come back to bite me. So when the lovely team at Monty PR send me a box full of pamper goodies that would get me looking and feeling fresh and fabulous I think they answered my prayers. This is the Mandara Spa – Island Paradise Bath Soak* the look of it screams luxury but don’t but fret looks can be deceiving as this will NOT break the bank and is only £6.99 at Sainsburys at the moment so no excuse not to treat yourself to a little rest and relaxation me time.
The look is instantly striking its in a heavy 500ml turquoise glass jar, detailed with an ornate pattern and gold metallic writing with a lid the same to match just adding to the fact that it look pricey and the kind of thing you want to be sat on the side of your bath. Having your guests thinking bloddy hell aren’t they posh eh!
From its beginnings on the spiritual island of Bali, Mandara Spa is known worldwide for luxurious spa experiences in beautiful exotic locations and indulgent city spas across the four corners of the globe. Their spa products have been specially created to bring the Mandara Spa experience into your own home. They want you to feel radiant, pampered and perhaps touched by a little of the legendary magic that has become the ethos of a Mandara Spa.
As soon as the lid is of you can get in the mood and set the scene its a tropical heaven a mix of grapefruit and lemon notes fill and travel in the heat of the bath and you can transport yourself to a secluded island somewhere. Its not a product that loses its smell once its mixed with the water it carries on moving round the room and even when you leave the bathroom the steamy scent still lingers and is so fresh and zesty it revives yet keeps you relaxed and helps relieve any stress.
The texture is thick and a scoopful or two in your hand will do a bath nicely and to be honest it will hardly make a dent in the jar as its massive and this could easily give you 15/20 baths worth of use. The bubbles will form nicely no messing around with this product trying to get the bubbles to spread and grow they magically just appear and lather up into what I can only describe as the perfect bubble for a Santa’s beard (if you didn’t do this as a kid, I feel bad for you)
As soon as you skin below the bubble you feel like a weight is lifted and can appreciate that time just sat in the warmth feeling triumphant that you’ve conquered another week. Amazing how a bath can do that to a person just make the feel new again, is also paraben free so its a nice natural no nasty chemicals here seeping into your opened pores.
I am a bath girl but time means they are a luxury so when I have one I like to go all out an pamper myself, using something of quality really helps make you feel better about yourself and this has sone just that for me. I am using another lovely bath and body oil at the moment also sent to me by the guys from Monty PR which is what I am using after my bath and I could not feel more pampered than I do right now. A lot of bang for your buck with this product so, Invest in yourself and make time for you, you only have one life so appreciate the little things… Like a long bath.
