Seriously, I bathe every day but I have this thing for baths. When we built our new house about five years ago, one of the deal breakers was that I had to have the tub I wanted. When I don't feel good or when I am really cold, or when I just want time away from everyone running around the house, I take a bath. So it seemed to only make sense that, when we were picking out our bathroom, the master bath would have a huge, as the kids call it, "bubble tub." Thankfully, Mr. Crafty was happy to oblige and give me the way too expensive tub. :) He's a good man.
Today, it is freezing here in our lovely state. I take more baths in the winter but, as any of you who live in the colder regions know, hot water + soaking + dry air = itchy, dry, and red skin. Combine all of that with extremely hard water and I usually end up putting a whole bottle of lotion on after the bath. When I was asked to do a review for Adovia's Dead Sea Bath Salt soak, it was obviously a no-brainer for me. I received my package earlier this week and was excited to try it out.
The bag of sea salts I received was HUGE and packed full. You can't tell in this picture but it was overflowing. This picture was taken after I had poured a bunch into the tub.
I turned the hot water on and waited for the tub to start to fill up. When I got in, one thing I noticed right away was that the water itself actually felt soft. When you have hard water, you don't notice the actual feel of the water until you experience softer water. I sat back and relaxed. There was no odor or any sort of chemical smell at all. I also noticed that even though the water was softer, it wasn't slimy like it can get.
I was soaking for about 45 minutes when I decided I needed to get out and get things done. When I got out, I noticed that my skin wasn't itchy, it didn't feel dry, and there was no chemical smell to it.
I then dried my hair and noticed it too had reaped the benefits of the softer water thanks to the sea salts.
Now I am not a girly girl by any stretch of the imagination at all but, like I said, I love to take baths and I love to soak. I just hate the tight, dry feeling afterwards. This product was great! The only thing that was a negative was that I was totally relaxed and ready for a nap! This product will help definitely help you destress!
I will be looking into the other products that Adovia makes to see if there are any others that I might be interested in purchasing. Their customer service was quick and they were prompt about getting me everything I needed for this review.
