Third year of university is causing me a lot of stress and things haven’t been too good at the moment. So, what is the best way to relax? A good ol’ BATH.
If you have read my post “Sometimes Self Care is a Bubble Bath FT Bath Companies you need to try” then you will know how much love I have for having a bath. You would have also heard of the fabulous brand Fox & Soap. What first drew my attention to Fox & Soap was their sweet scents which reminded me of my childhood, so here we are. A Nostalgic Sweet Fox & Soap Haul. Jodie, the lovely lady behind the company, is absolutely lovely too.
Refresher Bath Bomb
This bath bomb smells exactly like the Original Refresher Lemon Flavour Chew Bars. Now, smelling this to me was AMAZING. I haven’t had an original flavour Refresher in YEARS because they aren’t suitable for vegetarians. Smelling this, I could almost taste the sherbet lemon flavour. It smells so good. This bomb was a very foamy fizz which I loved because it was just like sherbet, foamy and frothy.
The design of this bomb is very pretty(even when it has broken), especially the blue glitter on the top which leaves a shimmer in the water. The water goes a apple green colour and smells so sweet. The best thing about this bomb was how it left little starts running throughout the water, very aesthetically pleasing to watch fizz also. . If you love the smell of Refreshers- BUY THIS PRODUCT.
Fantasia Waffle Bath Bomb
The Bath Waffles are by far one of the best things about Fox & Soap, just look at the size! Fantasia bath bomb does not only resemble a Rhubarb and Custard sweet, it also SMELLS JUST LIKE IT. Described on the website as “summery blend of rhubarb and ripe peach with a hint of strawberry and vanilla”… I just smell pure creamy sweet sticky rhubarb and custard hard boiled sweets. I always thought these sweets had such a strong creamy smell, I not sure if it is the peach or the vanilla in this bomb that makes it so creamy. This really is my favourite smell out of all the products mentioned, I cannot get enough.
In the water this waffle was very frothy and very pretty to watch all of the colours mix and pour out of it. What I love about these is that they are so big you can break off as little and as much as you like. I normally get about 3 baths out of one. I kept the rest of the bomb on my desk and the smell lifted around the room, it was so lovely! Such as bright, colourful strong scent bomb which turns the water a rich dark pink. You can use a full Waffle for a luxurious bath or break the bomb into a few pieces and use that way, for £4.50, you cannot go wrong.
Parma Sutra bath bomb
Smells like your fave childhood sweeties! You literally cannot go wrong with this bomb. It is a common smell for bath bombs/products but I am gonna tell you why this is a MUST and it is all to do with how this baby is in the water. But first, the design. It is so pretty. It looks like a giant parma violet and the decoration on top is the sweetest.
In the water it is a slow fizz and it is absolutely outstanding to watch as you can see from the image. The colours that pour out of it as it floats on the water are beautiful, leaving you with the prettiest purple bath water. I could watch this bomb fizz all day, The smell also lingers whilst you are in the bath, it doesn’t lose it’s scent!
Peach Sister! Bath & Shower Fluff
Described on the website as smelling like juicy, ripe white peach and full of shimmery gold lustre and she isn’t wrong, Jodie came THROUGH with this product. I cannot stop using it or smelling it. It smells a little like peach gummies, one of my all time fave sweets. The design is gorgeous, so much product packed and whipped into a tub for only £6! Shower Fluffs from Fox and Soap can be used as a soap, shower gel, bubble bath, or shaving soap. You have to use a lot to create bubbles though!
This product is really the best for using as a shower gel or shaving foam. Whilst shaving, I apply a good amount to the area and it froths up. It is really easy to shave with, smooth and you won’t cut yourself. Your skin is so soft afterwards from all the Almond Oil in this product. I was in the bath the other day and I couldn’t get enough of this product. I just kept applying and applying and for the rest of the night I could smell the sweet peach and my skin was SO FLIPPING SOFT.
Beau Bubble Scoop
I used to have a staffie called Beau so this one holds a little special place in my heart. If you are reading this Jodie, make a pink bubble scoop called Asha (my other staffie) hehe. It also is incredible in the water and to smell. It smells like raspberry slush, you know a Slush Puppy or the Tango Ice Blasts. Pure nostalgia. Pure sweetness. The design is super cute, it looks like a little scoop of ice cream. They are quite small but for the price of. You crumble the bubble scoops under your tap and it creates bubbles, there are techniques to create more bubbles such as using a sieve (which I still need to try). It leaves the water a beautiful blue with shimmer running throughout.
Thanks for reading, if you are a bath lover you need to make an order from Fox & Soap, I have only mentioned some of their amazing products, I have tried the majority from them and they are all fab. The Christmas Collection is out now and will sell out quick so get on it ASAP!
