More Bath Salt Reviews

Saturday October 29, 2011   

A collection of 10 quick little reviews on a bunch of bath salts I’ve tried over the past couple of months.

Spicy Red Chili Peppers Bath

Have a kick-ass bath time!

This has a “super hot lemon” scent and it’s incredible strong! Very invigorating. :x Stays around after mixing the salt into the water too which is a plus. The water turns a clear reddish pink color.

On the cover the ingredients are listed as:

#1 Capsicum fruit extract
#2 Lipase
#3 Vanillyl butyl ether
#4 Far infared radiation powder

Effective but no where near as intense as the “spicy hot” packaging leads you to believe. :deco13: Borderline mild.

Funwarich Mousse Bath

From the ふんわりっち line produced by Bison. A “fluffy” or “airy” luxurious style mousse bath. This one has the scent of “Caramel Pudding.” It’s a beauty focused bath with Vitamin C and Collagen as main ingredients.

From the appearance of the bag I expected the salt to be more caramel yellow. Quite surprised! The smell when opening it is so, so sweet!!!! Like crushed hard caramel candies! When I added it to the water it started bubbling instantly! :lol: But not for long, as it mixed into the water. Turns the water milky orange in color. Super sweet smell like that of pancake syrup. You really have to mix it in thoroughly. It has a thickening effect too like some of Bison’s sweat baths.

All in all a good bath salt. It’s different and I think has a good niche with the sweets angle. For me though, the smell was too sweet so I don’t think I’d buy it again. :)

Extra Mint COOL Bison Bath Salt


This is one of Bison’s summer bath salts for keeping you cool. Smells intensely like wintergreen or spearmint gum! Opens your sinuses up! Haha. A nice cooling effect but nothing spectacular. The water color is a really pretty clear aqua blue though. That trademark crackle or “pop” element is there as well. The skin firming effect is pretty effective. However, I don’t really think I’d buy this one again. The Citrus Mint version of this salt is much better. :angry:

Goshu Zoo Bath

Polar Bear Bath Powder! Lovely orange scent with clear orange water. Feels like putting Fun Dip in your bathwater. Meant to warm you gradually and moisturize the skin! It was pretty effective and would be wonderful in the winter. Goshu salts aren’t really my favorites in terms of effectiveness but their packaging is always cute! :P

シーラン マグマSalt

This shi-ran (or searun) magma salt is a bit different from your typical bath salts. You first gently massage this salt on your fatty “trouble spots” and it warms up quickly!! Then you can soak in the tub. Actually it suggests a few different ways to use it. It’s an extremely effective sweat bath. Hands down! I would totally buy this again! :ok:

Finland Spa Relaxing Bath

These are from the Bison brand. They’ve been around for a while now though no longer on their website, which leads me to believe they’re now discontinued. These salts mostly focus on moisturizing the skin while creating a slight gradual sauna “sweat” experience. Ingredients include blueberry, cranberry, and ginger extract.

This one is scented white floral berry. It’s a amazing sweet berry scent! :deco2: Really a nice change! Milky pink bath water described as “berry pink.” Not really an effective sweat bath. Smells nice and leaves skin feeling a little softer but I wouldn’t buy it again. :deco13:

Platinum Bath 25g

A decent and cheap beauty bath. Milky white color with a fresh citrus scent. Has “skin firming” properties. I did sweat a bit too actually. It’s also a little moisturizing. Not too shabby xD

Gorgeous Bubble Bath

This is a bubble bath additive. It looks like your typical salt bath package/contents but once added you’ll get an instant foam with clear purple water color for a bubble bath!! The bubbles soon dissipate, but you’re left with a subtle sweet vanilla scent that is reminiscent of candy. It’s a cheap bath packet too! I just bought it because it said “bubble bath” which I’m always a sucker for :). It was cheap and is a pretty nice sorta foamy sweet soak :deco3:

Skin Care Moisture Bath

Another platinum based moisturizing bath salt with a nice floral scent and milky white color. It’s a decent skincare bath salt for a cheap price. It’s supposed to be a little deep cleansing for a detox effect too! It’s OK for a cheap relaxing bath. :ok:

Happy Bear Bath Ball

A fun fizzing bath ball with a subtle rose scent. :deco1: You get a “surprise” bear figure once the bath ball completely dissolves. I got the blue bear :) These are always just cute & fun and you can collect the little prizes. I keep the little prizes by my computer monitor :deco3:

I get asked “where can you buy bath salts online?”
So here’s a short list! :deco8:

If you know of more feel free to comment them here.
The comment might get held up in moderation because it’s a link but I’ll approve them if that happens :)

    I rarely ever take baths but seeing you gush about bath salts always wants to make me go take one! Too bad with the way my bathtub is shaped, it’s really not practical since way too much water would be wasted buuu. The shinran one looks awesome and I wanna try XD Would totally buy the last bear one too just for the toy – like a kinder surprise but for baths!
