Hey guys. It's time for a bath products haul, which is becoming one of my favorite things to get lately. I'm so into watching people put together "bath cocktails" and review indie brands for their whipped soaps, sugar scrubs, and bath treats. Let me just say most of them come from Canada. I don't know what the deal is but you're doing solid work Canada and I appreciate it.
So what I'm most obsessed with is bubble bars. A close second would be whipped soaps and then sugar scrubs. It's hard for me to find really great body wash but I have found some that I do really like. I also have some cool bath accessories and tips. So let's get into it.
Let's start with Country Market Crafts. This is my favorite company. You kinda have to jump on their new products as soon as they release to get them. For instance, I got the Blueberry 'Nilla Tart bubble bar for them. I absolutely love the scent and I went back to get it in the bubble bath/ body wash and it was already off the website. So, if you love something be sure to get it quickly. They do have some best sellers that they always restock of course.
So since they have the body wash I like lets talk about them first. Now, I do notice that every shower gel has shimmer to it but I never notice that shimmer on myself. I also notice that some formulas are a bit thicker and some are a bit thinner but it doesn't matter to me.
The three I have are:
Strawberry Nilla: This one is my favorite. It's thicker kinda like a gel. Hot pink in color. Smells amazing. They did have it in a scrub but I went back to look for it and boom it was gone.
Carrot Cake: This one smells more like normal cake than carrot cake and it's thinner in viscosity.
Rocket Pops: This one is brand new for summer it's bright blue. It smells like sour candies. It's really a great pick me up because it'll definitely wake you up. It's nice with the fruity or citrus scents in a bath. It's formula is also a little bit thicker in texture but like I said I don't mind.
All the bubble bath/body wash is 8.5 oz (that's a lot). These three are all vegan and $7.74. That's an amazing price. My other favorite shower gels/body wash are from LUSH and they're 8.4 oz containers are around $17.......that's nearly a $10 difference. This is just one reason why I love this company. They also lather really well.
Next up is their Bubble Bars which I've talked about before. I have some new ones from the permanent line and some new releases for summer! I made two orders while I was putting this haul together. I get duplicates of the ones I love.
Fruit Loops bubble bar was a repurchase because it's so colorful and I love it.
It's $5.04 Vegan, around 4.5-5.5 oz or more.
I usually get about 3 uses out of it.
Rainbow Berry Tart bubble bar. I have 2 of these and they have a hidden color under the icing. This smells amazing. Like I want to eat it.
Its $5.04 for approximately 4 oz. You can get about 4 uses out of this one. It's not Vegan.
Fairy Bread. This reminds me a little of the gingerbread bubble bar. It also has a hidden color in it. It's really thick. I look at them online and it looks like it would be a bigger length/width than it is but because it's so thick it's still a lot of product. I love the icing and sprinkles that they put on their bubble bars.
It's 5.24, Vegan and Approximately 4.0 oz. I'm sure you could get 4 baths out of this but I usually do 3.
Blueberry Nilla Tart. I got 2 of these because I knew I would love this, and I do, and they're gone. I'm not sure if they're coming back but I really hope so. It legit looks like a pop tart how they done the icing in zig zags etc. Mine are pretty thick. I think they're a little thicker than the Rainbow Berry Tarts that I have which is cool. It also has a hidden color.
It's $5.02, Vegan and around 4 oz. Again around 3-4 baths with this as well.
They released two new bubble bars for summer.
They released a Watermelon Lemonade Bubble Bar. I love anything watermelon scented especially Watermelon Lemonade. That is the only fruity scent I will buy from Bath and Body Works. This is killer. It's a cute little slice shape. It looks kinda small but it's also really thick.
It's $4.66, Vegan and around 4 oz. With this one I think I will get 2 uses out of it.
The other bubble bar is Pineapple Jasmine. This is pretty big and also thick at the same time. It has a potent smell. It doesn't smell super strong of pineapple though. It has a hidden color as well.
It's $6.21, Vegan and 6.75 oz. I think you could get 4 uses out of this one.
They always send a little sample bag of a bath bomb dust which I love because it works so much better than actual bath bombs in my opinion and you get a little coupon with it for your next purchase.
Their shipping can not be beat. It's usually $8.50. There are a lot of companies that I checked out where the shipping was nearly $20. Not only is it a good rate but they ship it the next day usually or within 2 business days. I'm always amazed by them and typically the pkg gets to me, in TN, within at most 3 business days. They're packaged very well when shipped. Sometimes the bigger ones break a little but not much. The thicker ones have never broken during shipping in my experience. They are pretty much shrink wrapped/vacuum sealed when they arrive. That way you don't have a mess or any crumbles in the box and helps keep everything together. So there's my love story with Country Market Crafts.
I also picked up some more products from Lavish Bath Company. They definitely have the softest bubble bars, almost like a dough, and now their products are massive as well. I picked up Birthday Cake, Fruit Loops, Lady Bug, and Watermelon Slice.
They sent along a bath bomb as well. They're huge and if they don't look huge, they're thick. The prices and the shipping is awesome as well. Follow them on Instagram and see when new products release. I'm telling ya, some cute items and they have the most fragrant products I've ever had or used. I ordered it on 6/15 it shipped on 6/19. I got it on 6/21.
I tried a new company which is New York's Bathhouse. They had a really good selection of products and good prices. They also have "after pay" which is where you payments split up to 4 payments that come out every week. The shipping is really good around $8.34 for my order.
I got 7 bubble bars and a free soap and they also sent me a free bath bomb which was so cool.
They had some cute shapes.
I got :
Mango Papaya Chocolate Dipped Pretzel for $9
Citrus & Pineapple Chocolate Dipped Pretzel for $9
Chocolate Chip Cookies (you get three in the little bag) for $8.50
Frosted Pumpkin Cake $7
Raspberry Zinger Iced Donut (on sale) $4
Day Dreaming (on sale) $4
All the bubble bars got here in one piece, no breaking what so ever. They were packed and wrapped up really good. They also sent a coupon for the next purchase. This is another indie brand and weirdly enough I've not seen many people using their products all that much. Their processing was really fast. I ordered it on 5/29 they shipped it on 5/31 and it was delivered on 6/7. I was impressed that they had quite a few sale items. Which was great. All their bubble bars are very dense and heavy. I love that. They're fragrance is potent. I loved the little free soap and the bath bomb which is massive. I'm really excited for this one.
Lastly is Felicias Bath and Body Co.
I've wanted her products for A WHILE. I was just waiting for her to restock. She has massive bubble bars. Like HUGE tarts. They have a coupon out which for 10% off. So I got every tart she had and one more bubble bar.
The tarts I got were:
Avo Bath $11.50
Berry Vanilla $11.50
Fruit Loops $11.50
I believe all the tarts are 7 oz. They're bigger than my hand.
I got the newer bubble bar Dream Catcher that is in a swirl shape. $7
I got it because it's a "Calacas" dupe from LUSH that I have never got to try because it's not a permanent fragrance/product. I'd also never tried "Avo Bath" from LUSH either. They've changed the Avo Bath tart to the Calacas scent.
The shipping was around $17. I ordered on June 1st it was shipped on June 11th, it was delivered on 6/22. It came well wrapped in a box, without a tracking number. You can choose to go with different shipping methods though. It's a small company. Also from Canada. The owner is very very sweet and replies to any message really quickly from my experience. She even sent me a cute little bath bomb and all products have the best scents. They're strong but not over powering.
As for tips:
I use a Sieve to put my bubble bars in. Just look up #bathcocktail on Instagram and you'll see how people get the best bubble baths out of doing cocktails and such. I chop up some of the bubble bar, and then wrap the rest up and put it back in my basket, put it in the sieve and add some bubble dough like LUSH Fun. I then add pieces of chopped up soap and some body wash. Be careful and don't add in products that are too moisturizing or don't lather because trust me it will effect the amount of bubbles you get. It took me forever to figure out why I wasn't getting as many bubbles as the videos on Instagram.
Another tip is using the Daily Concepts Body Srubber. Which is basically like an exfoliating mitt over a sponge. It comes with a suction cup to attach to the shower wall so you can hang it on there to dry. It's a "mild texture" but quite exfoliating in my opinion, and has a sponge inside to make sure it lathers your body wash. The bag it comes in is reusable and the wording fades when it's time to replace it. So cool. I like this much better for exfoliation than a salt or sugar scrub. It does a great job.
Lastly, if I'm using a bath bomb or bath melt with floral pieces, herbs, oats, etc. that are left in the bottom of the tub, I put them in a muslin cloth bag or just a muslin cloth with a tie to keep those little bits inside while all the goodness comes out. You can also chop up bubble bars and put them in a muslin cloth bag rather than a sieve, and hang it on the faucet so the water will run over it and create bubbles. Since there are muslin face cloths that can be washed over and over again, I would assume you could wash and re-use muslin bags as well.
So that's it. This was a huge haul.
