Although bubble baths are supposed to be the ultimate in pampering bath time, they actually cause me endless issues: the fluff floating on the surface of the water gets in my eyes, causes my hair to go crusty and leaves a slippery film on the bath base when you let the water run away. For me, there’s only one bath time treat I’m willing to get on board with: bath oil. Not only does it make the water feel smooth and rich, simultaenously providing a delicate and relaxing scent, but bath oils can also help to provide skincare benefits by hydrating as we soak. The lovely people at Ren sent me this fabulous Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil before Christmas, and it’s become my new favourite bath companion. Rose has long been used to evoke feelings of well-being, even helping to ease stress and symptoms of depression, so this little bottle of rose bath oil is the perfect companion during the dull winter months.
The oil is extremely light, mixing with warm water to create a creamy milky texture. It’s not at all greasy and, importantly, doesn’t leave an oily film on your bath tub when you’re done – because the oil mixes to create a milky water, there are no huge droplets to contend with when bath time is over. Although some bath oils leave an overwhelming scent, Ren’s Moroccan Rose provides a delicate fragrance that helps you to relax and feel comforted all at once. Although this bottle will set you back £30.00 for 110ml, it’s a lot more reasonable than other oils that are often packaged in much smaller bottles and provide terrible value for money. Having not tried many Ren products before, this bath oil is my new best friend… I’ve been finding excuse after excuse to have some time alone in the tub with my rubber duck.
The Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil is available online priced £30.00 for a 110ml bottle.
