Rich and indulgent on skin, the potency of this skin-nourishing oil is obvious just by looking at it. It’s delightful drizzled into a soak in the tub, and just as lovely smothered straight on limbs to give good sheen. This product feels premium – the packaging is eco-aware without losing a sense of luxury (which can happen often in the natural market), so that impressed me too.
I adored this product, everything about it. The beautiful packaging, the scent of lavender is quite strong at first, but it mellows out during the bath. My skin was left smooth and silky for hours after using this product. I could absolutely feel the love and care when using this bath oil. I love what this brand stands for, and I’m so impressed by the little details that were really prevalent to me.
What a gorgeous bath this makes with bubbles of fragrant, moisturising oils and dried flowers dancing around me. As I get out of the bath, the oils stay on my skin and I am left with soft, nourished skin and a relaxing floral scent.
When creating a self care practice in the bath, I love including fragrant oils to massage my body. This bath oil smelt so beautiful and made me feel like a goddess.
A truly divine self-care product: every woman should bathe in this oil! The bottle itself is perfection: a simple vial with printed branding instead of a label (I LOVE Lux Aestiva’s branding) so you can see the divine golden elixir within. Inside float the most beautiful flowers (but what are they?!) Upon opening the bottle, the scent is deliciously floral but not too overpowering. Only a few drops are needed for one full tub. The oil absorbs into the skin (no need to apply moisturiser or oil after bathing) while the flowers float in the water. Take one or two buds and crush them into your skin to release their oils. Like I said, a truly divine self-care experience.
