Tropic Skincare's Soothe & Awaken The Senses Bath Soaks | Cruelty Free & Vegan

My Friday-night-pamper-night is quite easily the highlight of my week, a good loooong soak in the tub with some spa-like luxuries being the stage I look forward to most and nothing says fancy bathing like a little treat from Tropic. Joining my favourite Tahitian Vanilla & Coconut Luxury Bath Foam on my fancy caddy are two new tub-loves in the form of nourishing oil-to-milks; Soothe The Senses and Awaken The Senses are the latest launches to their body care line and come as aromatherapy edition bath soaks with different scents as well as different properties, but both are equally as delicious as each other...

For the ultimate soak, Soothe The Senses turns your tub into a pool of tranquility with frangipani flower extract, together with a blend vitamin E and macadamia oils, it softens and nourishes the skin whilst cedarwood essential oils provide an all-round grounding sense of comfort. The scent is pretty glorious - to the point where my boyfriend burst in to ask what smelt so good the first time I used it - and fills not only my bathroom but the entire house for hours on end after... I have zero complaints. 

On the odd occasion I jump in for a morning bathe, Awaken The Senses is what I've reached for to kick start my day, otherwise it's a good one early-evening if you're feeling a bit dozy but aren't quite ready to head to bed. Using an aromatherapeutic infusion of bergamot, lemon, lime, mandarin and sweet orange oil, it revitalises, uplifts and energises, then neroli and basil essential oils soothe muscles and banish fatigue. It's seriously zesty scent-wise and post-soak, lingers on my skin for a good while. 

Lights low and Tropic's Signature Soy Wax Candle lit, I go on to drizzle a couple of cap-fulls under warm, running water, the nourishing gel-like oil instantly melts into a velvety, milk-soak which kicks out every infusion. Here's where I step in and slip down, inhaling-exhaling the soothing aroma goodness as the conditioning plant oils pamper my skin, not moving for a solid 45 minutes... and then some. 

It doesn't stop at that either, since there are also Soothe The Senses and Awaken The Senses Luxury Body Oils with matching soak-scents which prolong the lingering effects and will leave your limbs feeling silky soft when they too are added to your bath for the ultimate aroma-cocktail or massaged in to the skin when you step out. Whether you're looking to add a little something zen or a little something zing to your tub - personally, I'd say to pick up one of each (a girl's got to have options after all) - bath time really doesn't get any better than this...
