For the umpteenth time, and definitely not the last time, Jasmine is one of my all time favourite scents. You tell me a perfume/cream/soap/oil (you get the idea) has Jasmine notes in it and automatically my interest is piqued. I want it, it really is that simple. However that rash decision has led to many products disappointing me, synthetic Jasmine notes waft out and completely sully the scent for me. Well when Bodhi’s Jasmine Falls set landed on my desk I was intrigued to see if it rises to my expectations or falls flat.
I’ve written about Bodhi before, you can find the post here, and they really are a pretty special brand. The Botanical Therapies range which this duo belong to are free from potentially harmful parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals. They really value the importance of quality and quantity – most‘natural’ products on the market today contain 0.5-1% of essential oils, but Botanical Therapies is formulated with more than twice this average. With all that in mind I was really looking forward to testing out Jasmine Falls Relaxing Bath & Shower Therapy and the Body Moisturiser.
When I opened up Jasmine Falls Relaxing Bath & Shower Therapy, I was automatically enveloped in such an authentic scent of Jasmine that I was pretty darn sure I was going to end up liking this product. I just had my fingers crossed that the scent would linger on the skin and not just disappear in the water like most bath products do. After running some under the tap, my bath definitely bubbled up so that was a tick from me and the most satisfying thing was the scent did not disappear! Even after I emptied half the tub and filled it up again, the scent remained strong. This is what Bodhi have to say about the product: ‘This potent brew of Jasmine Absolute, Lavender and Red Mandarin helps to de-stress, soothe the mind and promote a sense of well-being, perfect for relaxing and unwinding. Skin is deeply cleansed and regenerated, leaving it soothed, balanced and relaxed.’ I didn’t even realise there was lavender in it, I usually dislike the scent of lavender but I know it helps relax me. No wonder I had a deep sleep after using this!
Now I’m not a fan of body moisturisers, I like them but I can never be bothered to deal with the hassle of applying them. At a recent press event I had my body moisture level tested by an expert and he told me that my skin was fine so a body moisturiser isn’t an essential part of my life. However every now and then I do like to pamper myself and incorporate a nice moisturiser into my pamper routine. I decided to use the Jasmine Falls Relaxing Body Moisturiser as a way to enhance the scent of the Bath Therapy and again I was enveloped in that gorgeous scent of Jasmine. But not only that, I really liked the product too – the consistency was light and really easy to massage in and it didn’t leave me feeling sticky. I’m not yet a body moisturiser convert however I do use this at every single pamper session I have. I’m going to have to purchase the big size version of this so I don’t run out – me buying a body moisturiser? Didn’t think I would see that day come!
When I was inquiring about the Bath & Shower therapies, a little birdie told me that the scent lingers in the bathroom hours after using the product. I sort of though hmm maybe that is a slight exaggeration however I was pleased to find out my source was right. A couple of hours later my Mum walked into my room asking what I used in the bathroom as it smelt really nice! I am so impressed with the product and even though Bodhi are a high end brand, this is so affordable. I think it would make the perfect gift for someone or even yourself as this gift set retails at £25 here with free delivery too! I definitely want to try out another scent from the Bath & Shower Therapy range.
You can explore the range here to find a scent suited to you, as you probably have guessed Jasmine Falls comes highly recommended. I’m guessing Bodhi will have some great Christmas releases so I shall bring you the scoop on that soon too.
I hope you enjoyed t0day’s post, do let me know what you would like to see more of and until next time have a great day! Tanzina x
