Elemis tranquil touch bath elixir

One of my favourite things to do is disappear into a big bubble bath, listen to good music & shut the world out for half an hour (or an hour if I'm feeling especially lazy!). A little while ago the nice people at Pure Spa (who did my nails & hair all fancy last year) got in touch & asked if I'd like to review on of their Elemis products. Obviously I said yes, please!

I received a sample of the Tranquil Touch Bath Elixir* - a "sensuous bath soak". Ooooh. As well as being the leading luxury British spa & skincare brand, Elemis have got seriously good morals. They don't test on animals or use any animal extracts in their products. It's all natural oils & organic extracts.

This elixir is made up of a combination of patchouli, cedarwood and vetivert aromatic oils, and enriched with natural cocoa butter. I had never heard of patchouli or vetivert before, but after a quick google discovered the former is a mint plant (earthy, musky aroma) and the latter is a tall tropical grass (sweet, woody aroma). Another fun fact, vetivert oil is known as the 'Oil of Tranquility' because of its excellent calming action. Yes please. 

This is a bath. Not a sink (ha).
I normally use quite girly, flowery bath products, so it was a real treat to use this. The scent is really rich & does make me feel like I've just stepped into a spa. It produces a good amount of bubbles (which to me is pretty much the most important part of a bath product!) and my skin felt super smooth afterwards. 

A full-size bottle (300ml) costs £21 so it is quite an expensive product, but it definitely feels super luxurious (and would be perfect as a present for the busy person in your life). Thanks again to Pure Spa for giving me the opportunity to treat myself! 


  1. I received a sample of this in a beauty box once ( think it was one of the She Said ones) and it was lovely, smells absolutely gorgeous and as you said, so luxurious! xo
