Review: Organic Surge Spiced Lily Foaming Bath

Being a confirmed lover of long, luxurious baths, I'm always on the hunt for the next great bath oil/foam/soak - generally in the hope that it'll surpass my benchmark Soap and Glory Calm One Calm All bubble bath, which has both excellent soft bubbles and impressive longevity.  I happened to be picking up a few essentials at Waitrose a while ago, and spotted Organic Surge's Spiced Lily foam bath.  On offer for £3, marked down from its usual £4.99 pricetag, I thought it'd be rude not to grab a bottle to try out.

I really, really want to like this product - not least because the scent is absolutely gorgeous.  It's a spicy, warm, wintery scent that's not particularly overpowering but is definitely more pungent than your average bubble bath.  Added to a running bath, the scent filled up my bathroom and was undoubtedly relaxing - but sadly, what it has in scent it lacks in bubbliness.  I had to use around a sixth of the 250ml bottle to get a good pile of bubbles in my bathtub, which I found both wasteful (foam bath, in my mind, should generally be an affordable bath solution) and slightly annoying.  I'm guessing that this is in part down to Organic Surge's stance on sulphates - the bath foam doesn't contain any SLS at all.

My bath wasn't just low on foam - the foam that I did manage to build up didn't really last.  After around half an hour, the bubbles had all dissipated, leaving me relaxing in a pleasantly scented but ultimately bubble-less bath.  Given my penchant for baths that last longer than an hour, this is alone is enough to ensure I won't be buying this foam bath again.  The scent, whilst rather lovely, isn't special enough to change my mind.

If you like your baths rather short and not particularly foamy, and you'd like to try this for yourself, you'll find it online and in Boots stores, where it costs £4.99 a bottle.
