Tub time is sacred for this Bombshell. It's a time just for me, when I can relax my mind and rejuvenate my skin. It's a time to wash away the day, deep condition my hair and steam up the bathroom mirror. Hence, I don't jump into the shower with just anyone. In order to take up permanent residence along the edge of my bathtub, a product has to fulfill 2 essential requirements: voluminous lather and intoxicating scent. A third, unofficial requirement is occasionally applied (although is rarely a deal breaker): a product should not cost so much as to cause undue guilt and rationing. Savon's Bain de-luxe foaming body scrub in Rosemary Mint meets and exceeds all three of my requirements.
The scent? Invigorating, refreshing, can't-get-enough-of-it good.
Lather? Lots and lots. The scrub pulls double duty by starting out as an exfoliater, one that polishes without feeling abrasive and then melts into a pile of silky lather.
Cost? Minimal. We're talking $3.99 per bottle, available at Ulta, drugstore.com and other discount retailers.
The line also features a body lotion and spray, a body wash and soaps. Admittedly, the body lotion is a little whimpy (although silky smooth in application) but retains the delicious scent when layered in between scrub and spray. As if these were not reason enough to move in permanently, Bain de-luxe's packaging is beautiful in a minimalist spa kind of way.
