Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Bath Oil

As always my blog remains extremely honest, whether it makes me look like a cheap skate (I wonder if that's a "Liverpool" term?!) or not I will always tell you my true thoughts.

I have somewhat of an obsession with oils, body oils mainly but I  wanted to explore a little bit more of the Jo Malone range so I purchased her Lime Basil & Mandarin Bath Oil.  


Honestly, I feel a bit silly saying this but I wasn't entirely sure what to do with it in terms of how much to put in the bath, etc.  In the end I poured in enough to bring the liquid down to just above the label (remember this is a 30ml bottle!)

Everything about this product is true, utter luxury in it's highest form.  From the sleek, glass bottle to the aroma it gave my bathroom, it truly was a treat to use. 

Normally if I use a bath bomb or something I will add a drop of bubble bath as I do enjoy the bubbles but to give a true review I used it alone.  I was actually really surprised that I did get a few bubbles in my bath as I didn't expect it from an oil.  When I got out my skin felt silky and it was a really enjoyable experience.


The bottom line is.... I do love using this bath oil.  This is definitely a 'treat bath' due to the price but then to put it into another way of thinking, this bottle cost me £16 and I think I could get 6 baths out of it.  Working that out it's £2.66 per bath and a Lush Bath Bomb is between £2.95 and £3.25.  

I will save this for when I really want to have a more indulgent bath but I would consider purchasing another one in time.  My only issue is that it's such a shame that not all of her fragrances are available in a bath oil.


  1. I definitely have to have this, ive been after a bath oil that smells good and has bubbles for soo long as i dont want to mix scents so never want to usa a bubble bath with them, buying this as soon as i go to london on thursday :) xxx

  2. This has a fresh,clean and non-perfumy aroma.I utilize it as a post-shower moisturizer; simply apply on moist skin.It leaves my skin feeling soft and gently scented for the duration of the day.It is expensive,yet you don't have to utilize all that much to get the full effect.
