Bath Time Pampering With The Secret Paradise Collection From Heathcote & Ivory ♥


 It's not often that I have a bath, usually by the time I put my son to bed in the evenings I'm too exhausted for anything but lying on the couch surfing the net or watching tv but when I got some goodies from the Secret Paradise collection from Heathcote & Ivory I couldn't resist but make some time for myself to have a nice, hot, relaxing, pampering bath. The Secret Paradise collection is absolutely beautiful, adorned with floral elements, hints of gold and pink flamingos to boot (my favourite!), the packaging has a feel of the exotic and just exudes luxury and the scent - it's amazing! The products have a mixture of scents including floral and citrus notes with hints of sandalwood, white musk and cedarwood which fill up the whole room while using the products. The collection is so unbelievably pretty and the products themselves are quite decorative, I actually thought it was a shame to use them up as they were so lovely looking.

 I have the Secret Paradise Scented Candle In Tin and I have to admit I haven't burnt this yet as I've been using it as a decorative piece. The candle itself is pink with little hearts inside and the packaging on the gold tin is beautiful with it's floral and hummingbird design. I've been keeping this candle in the bathroom and think I will light it for a relaxing bath once the winter nights arrive but for now I think it's a gorgeous decorative piece. The Secret Paradise Scented Candle In Tin is £8.

I also have the Secret Paradise Bath Fizzer Crackers which don't seem to be available on the Heathcote & Ivory website now but I thought they were quite fun. Each cracker contains three little bath fizzers which don't do much to the water but they smelt great. I would have liked these a whole lot more if they made the water bubbly or change colour.

 My favourite product from the collection by far is the Secret Paradise Bathing Flowers
These look so beautiful and have the look of real flowers, my favourite being the lilac rose. I wasn't sure if these would melt into the bath or if they were just for decoration but they actually dissolve into the water after some time. You simply pull off some petals and pop them into the water for a bath surrounded by petals which are infused with essential oils and floral and citrus scents. I thought these were so luxurious and actually quite romantic. I think they'd make a lovely Valentine's Day gift for other halves too.

I thoroughly enjoyed my bath with these gorgeous goodies, I love the novelty of the bathing flowers and would purchase them again. I love the feel, look and scent of the Secret Paradise collection and was delighted to get to try out some goodies from the range. I think the Secret Paradise collection is a gorgeous collection which is perfect for those who want to have a few decorative yet practical pieces in their bathroom. I also think the collection pieces would make perfect gifts for the special someone in your life or even if you want to give yourself a little luxurious treat, I actually think the pieces would love lovely as part of a hamper. You can browse more of the collection and purchase too on the Heathcote & Ivory website.

  1. I love the petals!!! I think that's just lovely, better than adding real rose petals to your bath because at least these ones can remain pretty for months before you use them!
