Get Drenched

With A Loved One This Valentines Day

Get Drenched are the Australian distributors of Bomb Cosmetics, a UK based company who only use natural products, butters and oils to create little luxuries that not only pamper but enliven the skin. They are against animal testing and believe that neither animal, human or the environment should suffer for our luxuries. All products are hand made rather than machine made, giving them all an individual personality and love.

A visit to www.getdrenched.com.au is a step into paradise. A soft visually appealing site, Get Drenched had me wanting to reach into my computer and devour the products. Soaking in a bath has never looked more enticing. With bath treats, shower treats, skin care, homemade soap, massage bars,essential oils, candles and gift packs your bathroom is sure to become the favourite room in the house, your little oasis that takes your senses on a holiday that they never wish to return from.

With Valentines Day approaching we test ran a group of products that not only say I love you but show  how important your loved one is to you. What better way to let them know they deserve only the best than with a sensual soap, bath bomb and candle from Get Drenched. There is no more romantic way to spend Valentines Day than sinking into a warm bath together filled with the sexy, softening aroma of  Roses, whilst a Love Rocks Candle sets the mood. Not only do Get Drenched products smell divine but they look delicious as well, providing that all over sexy, sensual, feel good experience.

This Valentines Day forget the chocolates and roses, they are done and dusted. Consider checking out the following products at www.getdrenched.com.au

Crazy Cupid Handmade Soap with Essential Oil
Beautifully packaged in a clear wrapper this soap has a red love heart situated within. This soft romantic look of this soap carries through to the feel and smell. We were surprised when we unwrapped it. We did not expect the velvety soft feel we found. To hold in your hand  dry  is a divine feeling but to rub it over your body moist is a textual experience fit for the gods. Soft, with a subtle aroma of Lavender, Chamomile and Ylang Ylang this soap leaves you feeling relaxed, revitalized and ready to release the 'crazy cupid' within.




Sweet Love Bath Tulip

Well what can we say about this one but Wow! What an aroma, one of  love and lust for your Valentine. There were two things we loved about this bath tulip. One was the fact that it was so easy to use. Simply pop it into a warm bath, allow it to dissolve for a short while and then remove. The second was that it lasts for up to three uses. It is easy to store in between use by simply placing it back in it's patty pan wrapper. This tulip presents itself as a beautiful cup cake decorated with pink glittery icing and a love heart. The perfect way to show your 'cup cake' you care.


 
Love Rocks Truly Sensual Candle

There is nothing more sensual than bathing by candle light. This Love Rocks Candle presents itself in a tin for safe use. The  tiny pink love hearts situated around the edge add to the gentle loving feel. The placement of the hearts means they do not burn away immediately but sit as a reminder of your love time and time again. Hand crafted this candle is infused with seductive Ylang Ylang and Geranium to help set the mood. This is a long lasting candle that has a burning time of 30 – 35 hours. We found this candle to have a good quality wick that, unlike cheap nasty candles, continued to burn even when it reached the wax. It sits nicely on a bathroom shelf and with a lid for storage the concern of dust imbedding itself within the candle when stored is eliminated.





Sensual Rose Gift Set

This boxed gift set includes a Rose Bath Creamer, Darling Buds Bath Blaster and Rose Shower and Bath Oil.

The Rose Bath Creamer is infused with pure geranium and lavender essential oil and over 20% cocoa and shea butter. Simply pop it in the bath and listen to it's soft relaxing fizz. As you sink your body into the bath you instantly feel the soft moisturizing affect that the cocoa and shea butter have on the skin.

The Rose Shower and Bath Oil provides a slightly oilier effect than that of the cocoa and shea butter restoring oils to a more dry skin. Infused with pure geranium, ylang ylang and rose essential oils it definitely relaxes the senses. We found this great on a loofah in the shower. Presented in a clear bottle with floating rose petals this oil is great sitting on the shelf and can be used on the hands when they feel dry. I personally used this oil as a hand moisturizer throughout the day finding that it sunk into the skin quickly keeping it soft. The summer heat of the day strengthen the essential oils, providing a relaxing perfume that carried me throughout my day.

The Darling Buds Bath Blaster is a cricket size ball of rose petals that fizzes when popped in the bath, releasing pure essential oils. This provides a relaxing  essential oil experience for the nose follicles and the mind. The rose petals add to the sensual, sexy and relaxing feel.

This gift set lends itself nicely to a romantic and thoughtful gift for the older lady from the older man. A great way to say you deserve to be pampered, at any time of the year.

Je T'Aime Gift Set

This 'I Love You' gift set consists of a Miss Pinkwhistle Soap, Ruby Vegas Soap, Summer of Love Bath Blaster, Bedazzeld Bath Blaster and Love Cloud Bath Creamer. This is a lovely set that we felt was let down by it's presentation. The initial presentation, that of gift wrapped in red love heart paper and ribbon, provides appeal that is suitable for gift giving but the disappointment comes upon unwrapping. You are then met with a plain brown paper box. We would have liked to have seen the love theme carried through in packaging, but on a more positive note the packaging does provide a natural environmentally friendly message. The items were secured nicely within the box using wood wool packaging.

Both the soaps in this set were as stated for the Crazy Cupid Soap, showing consistency in the products of Bomb Cosmetics and Get Drenched. One thing that is worth noting is that these soaps dry quickly after use and do not seem to leave the soap residue over the soap holder that some soaps tend to do.

Wow! to the Love Cloud Bath Creamer. This product won our hearts as soon as we opened the box. This bath creamer has a luxurious centre of  vanilla, cocoa, cherries and anise, finished off with chocolate & vanilla. We surely wanted to eat it but had to settle for second best, indulging in a tub of warm floating chocolate heaven. The chocolate sprinkles and lolly look love hearts rolled through this creamer added to the delicious smell and appeal.

Both the bath blasters present nicely topped with hearts of love, accentuating the feel and meaning behind this boxed set.

Products within this gift set can be purchased individually on the website.
