Inspired by the delights found in traditional sweet shops and french patisseries, UK brand Patisserie de Bain has developed their fantastic range of bath and body beauty products to cater for every girl’s (or guys) guilty pleasure. I was lucky enough to be sent a whole host of goodies from the range to trial including:
Cranberries and Cream Hand and Body Lotion
Strawberry Cupcake Bath and Shower Creme
Lemon Bon Bon Hand and Body Lotion
Lemon Bon Bon Bath and Shower Creme
Sugared Violet & Hyacinth Bath Fancies
Raspberry and Apple Crumble Bath Fancies
Sugared Rose Hand Cream
Sugared Violet Hand Cream
Orange Crush Hand Cream
Sweet as Cherry Pie Hand Cream
You’d be hard pushed to find any girl (and particularly any blogger) who doesn’t love a sweet treat or good old fashioned pamper, so Patisserie de Bain seem to have found a winning combination. All of the products come packaged in the distinctive Patisserie de Bain pastel coloured kitch packaging, making them the perfect addition to any girls beauty collection.
The Shower Creme’s are a light silky gel which lather really easily and feel great on the skin. They come in a 200ml squeeze tube which lasts really well. My personal favourite of the two cremes that I was sent (Lemon Bon Bon and Strawberry Cupcake) was Strawberry Cupcake. I love any strawberry fragranced body product as I find that the scent lasts really well on my skin. I was not however such a fan of the Lemon Bon Bon creme as I personally felt that it was a bit clinical smelling on my skin and wasn’t too dissimilar to the fragrance of one of my cleaning products.
The Hand and Body Creme’s are a gel like cream consistency (rather than a lotion or rich cream) and are quite thick so you only need a really small amount. When applied to the skin I found that they went white in colour and took a few minutes to absorb. They did however last really well and left my skin feeling super soft. Again Lemon Bon Bon wasn’t really for me as a matter of personal taste, but I loved Cranberries and Cream which is similar in fragrance to Strawberry Cupcake so I really liked using these as a duo (Strawberry Cupcake in the shower followed by the Cranberries and Cream moisturiser afterwards).
My favourite products of all of the Patisserie de Bain range were however the Bath Fancies – which to be honest I was genuinely really shocked about! I think I am one of the only beauty bloggers on the planet who hates bath bombs and much prefers a good old fashioned bubble bath, so I assumed (wrongly) that I wasn’t going to be a fan. The bath fancies come packed with shea and cocoa butters which are released when dissolved in the bath, leaving y0u with super soft moisturised skin when you get out. I personally love any form of pampering, but if you hate having to apply moisturiser after a bath then these definitely need to be on your shopping list. I loved all of the fancies I was sent to trial – the fragrances were lush and left my bathroom smelling amazing and my skin felt great after every use. So for a girl who used to hate bath bombs, it’s a pretty big deal that I would definitely buy these again.
And last but by no means least the hand creams… I usually tend to buy hand creams that come in a tube for ease of use, however the little tubs of Orange Crush and Sweet as Cherry Pie I trialled were really handy to leave on my desk at work and perfect for carrying in smaller handbags. All four of the creams (Orange Crush, Sweet as Cherry Pie, Sugared Violet and Sugared Rose) smelt good enough to eat, but my absolute favourite was Sweet as Cherry Pie which – as you would probably guess – smells just like bakewell tart!
I will definitely be purchasing more of the Patisserie de Bain range in the Sweet as Cherry Pie fragrance and cannot wait to pick up some more of their bath fancies. If like me, you adore super cute packaging and sweet smelling products that aren’t going to break the bank then the Patisserie de Bain range is definitely for you.
