While men are up for a bracing shower, they don’t seem to quite get how important a full-on, steam-rising, candle-lit, peace-and-quiet bath time is for us ladies. I love a bath and always seem to come out not only clean but serene and to me it signals a complete wind down and total me-time. So, what I put in my bath is actually quite important. I don’t want to sit a hot tub with meagre bubbles or drying formulas – I want to come out better than I went in! I love the new range from Molton Brown – Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod – especially the Bathing Milk. It’s both sweet (patchouli) and spicy (ginger) at the same time and because it’s got essential oils from the Brazilian Pink Peppertree, skin feels silky soft. And, call me shallow, but I love the bottle too – it looks stylish sitting on the end of the bath!
