Quick Pick: Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Moisturising Bath Essence

I'm just coming to the end of a bottle of this, and will absolutely be repurchasing it. Mandara Spa products come from the people who make Elemis, so you know you're in pretty good hands despite the prices being very reasonable. All their products are free of SLS, parabens, mineral oil and all that sort of jiggery pokery, which shows that their formulations are reasonably ahead of the curve. And they have some extremely nice scents.

Amber Heaven is billed as a mix of sandalwood and patchouli, but I actually find it more sweet and delicately spicy than those note names suggest. There's a comforting, starchy sweet rice scent in there too. It bubbles up a treat, and is joined by a variety of other products in the same flavour, including a body wash - essential stuff if like me you favour a bath/shower combo ("bower", or "shath", if you like) and want all your scents to match up.

You can find this in Sainsbury's, where there is currently a 33% off deal on much of the Mandara Spa line. So you get it for £5.33 for 500ml (usually £8)
