Spa Basket by Fire Flower Gift Shop on Etsy Review

If you're like me, you LOVE bath essentials.  After a long day, hard day at work, all you want to do, is come home and unwind.  I'm not a shower person, but more of a bath person.  I love my baths, especially when I have nice and unique bath essentials, to give you that spa like experience.

First off, I would like to thank Virginia Herrington, from Fire Flower Gift Shop for sending me the spa basket.  Virginia can be found on Etsy and has a shop called, "Fire Flower Gift Shop."  Fire Flower Gift Shop sent me a very nice looking spa basket that consisted of: 

  • Cocoa Butter Lotion
  • Rose Bath Salts
  • Lavender Baths Salts
  • Lemon Lavender Sugar Scrub
  • Citrus Soap
  • Honey Almond Soap
  • Lavender and Green Tea Soap
  • Honey Almond Shower Sponge
All of the above are homemade and created by Virginia, over at Fire Flower Gift Shop via Etsy.  The basket is so cute!  It is a weaved woven basket, almost a light Lime Green in color and is packed with all the above goodies.  The Bath Salts, Scrub and Lotion comes in these cute little canning jars, with a decorative ribbon around each one.  The sponge and soaps are individually wrapped, to keep it's freshness as well as giving each one a decorative look, that compliments the basket
 

The first thing I've tried, was the Cocoa Butter Lotion.  It doesn't really have a scent, but I love the consistency of this lotion.  It's almost like a cream, instead of a lotion.  I love how this lotion feels.  It leaves my hands silky feeling and gives off a silky look.  


The baths salts in this basket are not your typical bath salts you would find at your local Walmart.  These salts are actually more processed and has a consistency of a powder.  I really love this, because I am not a fan of tiny rock like salts, that you can feel while in the bathtub.  These ground up salts are perfect for those who have a hot tub, to give your water a wonderful scent, as well as softening your skin.


The Citrus and the Honey Almond soap comes in a cute little thin bar.  These remind me of something you would find in a hotel.  Mine came packaged in this pink cellophane type paper and once unwrapped, are a silky white bar.  You can smell the soap as soon as you unwrap them!

The Lavender and Green Tea Soap is probably the most unique thing I noticed in this Spa Basket.  It looked almost like some sort of candy bar!  I love the feel and the texture of this soap!  So different, and although I have not used it yet, I can't wait to try it!


The Lemon and Lavender Sugar Scrub smells OHHHH SO NICE!  When I first opened the jar, I was instantly drawn in by the fragrance.  It smells just as the name...LEMON AND LAVENDER!  What a sweet combination.  This scrub is perfect for exfoliating your body, removing any unwanted dry skin.  You'll love this scrub!


Last, but certainly not least, is the Honey Almond Shower Sponge.  I will be the first to admit...I never heard of a sponge that was infused with a fragrance and gave off a silkiness, once wet!  This may look like your typical kitchen sponge, but it is so, much more than that.  This is a wonderful smelling sponge, infused with Honey Almond.


Now, keep in mind...All of these products are HOMEMADE by Virginia Herrington, over at Fire Flower Gift Shop via Etsy.  Check her out.  She has many other products, not only spa related, but other wonderful gifts as well.  She also accepts custom orders, so don't hesitate to ask her for a customized basket to fit your needs.
