I took a bath in the lavender herbal bath about 30 minutes ago. I showered first as I was instructed to by the saleswoman. I used about half of the little bottle, even though my bath tub is huge and seats three people. Even with only half the small bottle I got enough oil to really fragrance my entire bathroom and change my water into this amazing blue color. It was a perfect bath!
I loved the scent, so relaxing and soothing. The water did not feel greasy, just soft. My tub drained perfectly, no oily ring... looks shiny and new without rinsing.
I am dressed now and running my hands over my legs all I can say is WOW! I have never had skin this soft without using any lotion! Its perfect!
I'm using the almond oil one at the moment. Leaves my skin just peachy, but not as strong a scent as the others i've tried. After reading all your raves, I think i'll try lavender next.
Kneipp Herbal Baths make for a luxury bath experience. Sublime. I'm hooked on the rosemary. The sad thing is that I remember buying these years ago and they were *so* affordable--things have really changed! Truth is though, they're worth it even at the new prices.
Bought the energizing (or uplifting or whatever) and relaxing eucalyptus one from a B&BW sale recently and i like them. Wish they had more natural oils in them instead of fragrance but it does smell good. I don't know if it really relieves congestions but maybe. I like it because it is relaxing, but i do find i need a cap and a half per bath instead of one cap. Can be expensive if not on sale. I got it for about 5 dollars
Turns your bath into a silky fragrant experience. Ahhhhhhhhhh........
I need to review these again because I've yet to take a Kneipp bath that doesn't drain the stress right out of my body. They are so effective that they should probably be prescription-only, or a Class A narcotic. If you have a tub with jets, I highly recommend using them for a few minutes, then turning them off and staying very still. All the churning seems to activate a slight effervescent quality in the formula, because you'll feel all these tiny bubbles rising up from beneath you and as they float to the top, they create a layer of creamy foam. Pure bliss.
This is the classic You-Get-What-You-Pay-For in the beauty world scenario. After hearing celebrities extol its soothing properties, I went on a feavrish search to track this down. I picked out lavender, a thick blue hued oil (almost the consistancy of olive oil) that retails for $17. There are a myraid of "Bath Oils" out there, and I buy into the hype and sadly they always prove to let me down, ranging from cheap to expensive, (like kiehls)and do little more than scent the tub for 10 min. So! Knipp lives up to the hype, turning my bath water into a beautiful serene blue, and the upstairs loo is richly scented with Knipp, pronounced k-nife. Consequently, I woulden't give you 5 cents for the "sparkling bath tablet" made by Knipp (this is where Lush Bath Bombs come in) and (I may make enemies here) but everything made by Kiehls in the Bath & Body collection should be dumped in the garbage. Total crap.
Smells wonderful! Makes the whole room smell wonderful too!
I like this product a lot, I like all 6 scents.. And it leaves my body very soft..
When I first moved to Manhattan back in the late 80s, the prices (of everything, from rentals to food) were outrageous and the crime rate horrendous. And as a poverty-stricken assistant editor at some lowly trade mag read by a grand total of five, I could afford precious few luxuries (I remember breaking into tears and literally crying poor when my mother suggested I go treat myself to a meal somewhere), yet had a serious need to destress. So it was Kneipps to the rescue; just about every branch of the (now defunct) local chain Love Drugs had a little display rack of these and a little plastic bottle (the packaging was more humble-looking back then) could be had for something like a buck...or maybe even less. My favorites were the juniper, rosemary, melissa and spruce and pine. Just a shot in my bath water and ahh...I experienced the closest I ever got to a spa treatment back then. So exuberantly fresh smelling, almost like herbal remedies on steroids! Loved them; I'd forgotten about them until very recently, when I hit upon them by accident at sephora.com. They're not a buck a piece any more, for sure, but for nostalgia sake, I think I may need to revisit them. Oh, by the way - the one thing these AREN'T good for is making candles. Long story, but in my other most prominent memory of Kneipps, I attempted to use them to scent the wax of some candles I was making. (This was back before the Internet made ordering such things as supplies for candle making simple and painless; so in the meantime, I trekked my way out to some obscure craft shop in Queens just to get the wax and nearly got turned into road pizza on the Grand Central Parkway in the process!) The Kneipp didn't cause anything bad to happen - it's not as though it was highly flammable or anything. It just didn't have any what I believe is called "throw."
