Spa Therapeutic Gel Bath – Revive Infused with Rosemary
This is a really unique bath product, completely different to other products. I highly recommend everyone tries at least once, and it makes a very novel gift.
Sodium Polyacrylate. Perfume, Rosemary oil and Red Colour
There are 2 sachets inside the box. Tip stage 1 into bath water and swirl and watch the bath water turn into gel. The main ingredient – Sodium Polyacrylate – absorbs 200-300 times its own weight in water it’s a synthetic product and is used in nappies to absorb urine! The manufacturer recommends only filling the bath half full to get the best effect. When you add the 2nd sachet or stage 2, you are adding salt which neutralised the sodium polyacrylate, breaks down its bond and releases the water.
The bath water takes on the appearance of loads of little beads, and Rosemary essential oil scent comes through. You can feel resistance in the bath water, and it has a slight massaging effect on the body when you move around in it. When you pick it up in your hands, it has a slight exfoliating effect on the skin, and it the water seems to stay hotter for longer. Once you’ve added the salt, you can than experience the benefit of a detoxifying bath.
Value for money – £10.00 for a box which contains sachets for two baths – so a bit expensive for an everyday bath, however this is not an everyday bath experience – so probably worth it, and an very novel gift for more info and where to buy here is the manufacturers website http://www.gelicity.com/
Effectiveness – the information on the pack does promote it more as a therapeutic Spa effect, I wouldn’t go that far, but it is an interesting sensation and I ‘m sure it’s slightly beneficial
Pampering factor – I personally find this pampering, and I’ve used it on special occasions when I’ve had a stay at a luxury hotel
Definitely give it a try – it’s unique
