Review: Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath

Lately I've been indulging in hot baths a plenty, finding them the perfect antidote to soothe my aching limbs after a strenuous day as well as ease the trauma of being exposed to the Arctic elements which appear to be battering the UK once again.

I first tried Elemis' Skin Nourishing Milk Bath last year (February to be precise) and have subsequently repurchased it twice (*whispers* from Ebay!) enjoying the sweet scent of Oat Extract and Japanese Camellia Oil it releases in my bathroom.

Elemis, one of Britain's greatest beauty brands, boasts an exquisite range of skin and spa products and the Skin Nourishing Milk Bath has remained one of their best selling products throughout their 20 year presence in the beauty industry. 

 Suitable for dry/normal, irritated and sensitive skins, its milk protein base is rich in moisturising vitamins, minerals and amino acids leaving my own normal skin feeing great in the bath and smelling super-gorgeous on the few occasions that I've used it as a body lotion before going to bed - yes, it doubles up as a body lotion and is great for those with very dry skin.

 It's not cheap, priced at £39.90 for 400ml, and disappointingly falls flat in the bubbles department - lathering up quite pathetically and then all but disappearing within 15 minutes. I'm a big kid at heart, I NEED bubbles (and lots of them) in my baths! I've bought the 125ml bottles which last me approx 2.5 baths. I don't pour five capfuls in as recommended, I just fling it in cos I'm greedy like that and can't get enough of the smell which is just too yummy to stingy with!

I had a peek on timetospa and discovered that the limited edition Skin Nourishing Bath Milk which was released to coincide with Elemis' 20th anniversary last year has been now reduced from £49.00 to £29.00 (500ml) - that's an additional 100ml for £10 less than the original size. With Valentines Day around the corner this would be a fitting addition to a romantic evening ..*ahem*

It comes in a stunning Italian glass decanter which mimics its original packaging 20 years ago. Check it out here

I know this product has a lot of fans, are you one of them?

I've never heard of it before but it sounds great, the smell and the fact you can use it as a lotion too! I will check it out soon.

that's disappointing that there aren't any bubbles! i'm a kid like that too, lol....but i guess to luxuriate should be good enough, get soft skin

@The doll on fashion - You'll love the smell, smells like a newborn - but even better! LOL

@Socialitedreams - It does bubble up, but they're not huge and don't last once you're actually IN the bath. My skin feels fab afterwards though.

This sounds lovely, I'm really enjoying using some Elemis face products at the moment, will add this to my 'to try' list!

I've wanted to try this for years, then forgot about it! I've heard amazing things about this for dry sore skin like mine, even all those years ago! Think I'll give it a go now!
