I get a milkshake newsletter every so often, and in one of the most recent ones I discovered a lovely little company called Captain Blankenship. After heading over to the very well-designed website to read about the products and their ingredients, I promptly emailed Jana and asked if she’d be willing to send me any samples to try. She said yes, and lucky little me waited patiently for their arrival. Today I’ll be reviewing the Rusalka Bath Salt I received.
Ingredients (provided at captainblankenship.com and on product packaging)- “Pacific sea salt, California organic almond oil and essential oils.”
Because of the three familiar ingredients (always a good thing), I didn’t bother creating a preliminary report in the Cosmetics Database.
Some great things about this product:
1. It’s free of artificial fragrances and colors, parabens, sulfates, and petrochemicals.
2. It’s made with organic ingredients.
3. It comes in a cobalt blue glass bottle, which is both fancy and reusable (and therefore environmentally friendly).
4. The ingredients are kind of awesome.
Product Description (provided at captainblankenship.com)- “Forest Sprite (spruce, ocean pine, palmarosa, cedarwood, eucalyptus, vetiver)”
Price– $20 for a 16 oz cobalt blue glass bottle.
Performance- What sets this product apart from countless other bath milks, salts, powders and fizzes I’ve owned is its unobtrusive scent. It’s relaxing and not at all overwhelming, and I feel immersed in rather than bombarded with the scent. I’ve owned bath salts in the past that seemed to hang in the air, which usually resulted in either a headache or forced shallow breathing or both. That’s no way to relax!
Have I mentioned the soft skin that resulted from using this bath salt? That’s definitely another noteworthy perk.
Scent– It’s soothing, green, and not too feminine. Perfect for bath time!
Rating– I couldn’t think of a valid complaint if I tried. 10/10.
Would I purchase this item again? Yep. Also, wouldn’t this make a dreamy Christmas gift? I think so.
