I got the chance to review some items on my blog as a part of the Eden Love's Bloggers Program I had been lusting after the Shunga Oriental Bath Crystals for awhile now. I had heard so much great stuff about them and even smelt them at home parties before so I was glad to see that Eden carried them as well. At one point Eden offered these in three scents:Ocean,Aphrodisia and Lotus Flower, I am reviewing the Ocean. Shunga is known for their aromatherapy products from oils to bath soaks.
What is it & What does it do?
The Shunga Oriental Bath Crystals are designed to help relax sore muscles as well as help you relax with the aphrodisiac. They are made of salt crystals from the Dead Sea, the ocean sent was calming and very relaxing. Remember the cool bath tablets we had as kids that turned the water colors? This is a grownup version, I used very little of the Shunga Oriental Bath Crystals an it automatically turned my bath water a light blue and bubbles started to form.
What's Included in the Set & Packaging?
The reason I called this a "set" is because you get the canister that holds, 20oz of theShunga Oriental Bath Crystals, a floating candle and a perfect seashell for scooping out the bath salts. When you get the bath crystals they come in a black and gold tin, there is a red ribbon with a charm like oriental design hanging from it. Upon opening the canister you don't have to worry about the crystals leaking everywhere or anything like that from shipping. The Shunga Oriental Bath Crystals can be found inside a plastic bag that you can you open and dump it into the canister or leave it in the bag. On top of the bag you will find the seashell for scooping out your bath crystals and the candle. Nothing about the packaging screams "sexual item" you'll find a picture of an oriental man and woman, the label is black with white writing.
Ingredients:(INIC)Dead Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Dodecylbenzene Sulfonate, Fragrance, Glycerin, Carthamus Tinctorius, Prunus Dulcis.
I loved the way this smelt and the scent stuck to me which is one thing I like when using bath soaks.
As you can see above the candle floating in the middle, I don't recommend you bathing with the candle in the tub but it does set off a relaxing romantic feel. You could always set the candle on a mirrored plate with little marble stones to make it pretty or cutesy :)
Sadly this has been discontinued from Eden which I was worried would happen :( Glad I was able to snag these for review when I did. I absolutely love them even though I don't bathe that often I prefer showers over sitting in a bath.
I give these a 5/5 ratings
