Aromatherapy Associates Little Bell 7.5ml £8.00 (On Sale)

I wanted to share with you a review of a bath and shower oil by Aromatherapy Associates. I first heard of the brand from beauty gurus on YouTube. I was a little hesitant to trying them out myself because of the high end price tag so purchased it on Feel Unique in the January sales.

I’ve been using the product on and off for a while and finally finished the little bottle yesterday. The packaging is adorable and really drew me into purchasing the item. I love the blue coloured bell gift box and it’s such a sweet idea that you can hang it as a decoration.

There are different fragrances in the range with different purposes. I got the revive morning edition which is great to use in the morning to wake you up and energise. 

The fragrance includes bergamot, grapefruit and frankincense. It’s quite a powerful, uplifting scent. I imagine it partly this way because it’s strongly diluted into the bottle. I wasn’t sure that the scent was my thing but it was fairly pleasant.

As instructed you can either rub the oil into skin just before showering or put two capfuls into your bath. I tried both of these suggestions. I found using the oil on the body was nice but didn’t really see much effect. The scent was unrecognisable in the shower and didn’t see much difference to the skin afterwards.

Despite this I was highly impressed as using the oil in my bath. Not much was needed at all to create a beautiful relaxing soak. The scent was noticeable in the bath and I loved the gold shimmer in the water making it a luxury to use. After coming out of the bath I noticed a difference in my skin, it was much softer.

I had never used a product like this before and it’s actually one of my first high end purchases. Overall I was satisfied with the results and am looking forward to trying other oils in the range.

Have you tried anything from this brand? What are your fav high end bath products? xx
