Hello, hello! Happy Friday!

Today I’m reviewing the Deep Sleep Comforting Milk Bath Float from The Body Shop from my recent haul.

My experience: As you might know, I love taking baths, and I love bath products. But I have weirdly sensitive skin, so it is often a risky endeavour when it comes to trying new bath products. To test for skin reaction, I first filled the sink with hot water and the Deep Sleep and stuck my hands and wrists into the water and waited to see if there was any reaction before filling up the bathtub and putting my whole body at risk. Trust me on this one, the one time that I didn’t do a patch test on my wrist, I ended up with a nearly head to toe skin reaction. And that is never fun! Once I was fairly certain that this was a “safe” product for my skin, I immediately filled the tub up and hopped in.

The Deep Sleep Comforting Milk Bath Float is LOVELY. I felt so relaxed and my skin was so soft after a nice hot soak. The scent is not overpowering, I can smell the chamomile, hops, and lavender (lavandula hybrida) which is so soothing and relaxing. I love this. You won’t get a crazy amount of bubbles like you would with a Lush bubble bar, but I was surprised at the amount of bubbles that I got.

The Deep Sleep also plays nicely with some eucalyptus essential oil added in the bath with it – which is what I did last week when I was still recovering from the death plague.

It is currently on sale on the Canadian Body Shop website for $10 (regularly $24 for 400ml / 3.5 fl oz).

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

  1. Great post – as usual!

    If you have trouble with your skin breaking out, it might be worth checking if that’s due to methylisothialozinone.

    This stuff is a synthetic preservative. It’s quite powerful and linked to quite severe skin reactions. It’s considered OK in wash-off products, but problems often occur when this stuff is in leave-on products, like face creams and things like that. I can see it might also be a problem when this stuff is in bath foams because people can spend ages in their bath tub (I certainly can and do!) so the stuff has time to ‘sink in’.

    Check the products you use for this chemical. If you have something with it – shampoo, face scrub, etc – do a proper patch test. This might give you the answer.

    But don’t panic! I once had a pretty brutal reaction (eyes swollen shut, skin came off after a few days) which I could trace back to a high end face primer which contained methylisothiazolinone. Fortunately it was a tester sachet only, so I didn’t waste any money on it. But I have no problems at all with this chemical in wash-off products. Anyway, check your beauty stuff and try a patch test. And please let me know how if you can find out what’s causing the problem – this stuff or something else. xx

  2. I wanted to try this when I had trouble sleeping. It felt reqlly nice n it smelt nice after a bath but I didn’t feel like it helped with my sleepless nights. So that was disappointing. Nice for a general bath though. x

  3. I haven’t taken a bath in YEARS! We don’t even have a stopper for our bathtub lol. And before this place, I didn’t even HAVE a tub, just a shower stall! This sounds like a nice relaxing way to unwind – do you take baths every day / week? And yeah I hear you about patch testing stuff out on the skin first.

    1. Sounds like my old apartment – we had a bath, but only took showers, I don’t think we had a stopper either, haha! We have a lovely deep tub here so I make use of it as often as I can in the winter when I have the time – not every day / night, but more of a spa type thing. If I don’t have the luxury of time, I’ll have a shower. In warmer weather I prefer a shower.
