Review: Mandara Spa Honeymilk Dream Pampering Honey Bath

This bumper bottle of bubbles is Mandara Spa's latest bath treat: Honeymilk Dream.  It's apparently inspired by Hawaii, and contains acacia honey and kukui nut oil which help to "cocoon you in a magical spa where the mind and body will be soothed and enriched".

Unfortunately, I'm not entirely sure I agree.  The scent is a little flat and overly soapy for my liking, and dissipates almost immediately after the thick cream is added to the bath.  I also found that I had to add multiple great big handfuls of the stuff to get a decent pile of bubbles in the tub - and that those bubbles only lasted around half an hour before disappearing into nothing.

I'm feeling a little underwhelmed by this product.  Given that Mandara Spa are made by the same folks that make Elemis, and that Sarah's head over heels about some of their other products, I'm really disappointed that I didn't get a glorious bathing experience with this one.  If you'd like to give it a try yourself, you'll find it nationwide at Sainsbury's, where it costs £12.

  1. It's a shame that this product didn't live up to expectations as it sounds delicious going by the name!
    I've been finding myself disappointed with so many products lately, even those which have been highly recommended to me by other bloggers, and it's really frustrating, especially when you are really eager for them to be something special, or to live up to a promise such as 'diminishes dark under eye circles' (in my case). It seems that some products work for some people and no for others - and then there are those products which promise the earth and then do nothing for anyone. :(
