It’s a fresh week, which I always look forward to a little bit. I look at it as a chance to have a new start… and considering I started my day an hour later than I hoped, well, there’s that!
But, last week I had such a tough time getting back into the swing of things, and this week I feel like things are better and all of my “shows” are back — you ever notice how all the podcasts disappear on short weeks? I can’t blame them (honestly just jealous), but today I know I’ll have a full plate of content to listen to while I work.
And at the end of the day, I’ll probably take a bath — no, seriously. I’ve been taking so many baths as a way to destress before bed, so I’ve tried all the bubbles, foams, salts, and soaks.
So let’s talk about the Pursoma Bath Soak.
For starters, I bought all three scents right when I saw these at Ulta. A few Christmases ago, my mom asked for a dry brush, so I bought one from Pursoma.
They had other products at Ulta, and seemed like such a legit brand, I bought some bath soaks. Only, these bath soaks came in single-serve pouches and were $22 a pouch. Expensive bath, yeah?
So, when I saw these GIANT bags for $10, yeah, I added three to my cart immediately. I’ve had these for a month or so and have tried all three, so I’ll give you my thoughts on each.
Pursoma Cleanse Your Mind Bath Soak
I’ve listed these in order of linking, so this is my favorite! The scent is lavender and eucalyptus — the two scents I always get in bath products, combined — and it is strong but not overpowering.
There’s two things I noticed about all of these soaks: 1. It’s French grey sea salt, and 2. it’s ethically sourced and farm harvested. I quickly realized I don’t know what either of these things mean.
Turns out, French grey sea salt is harvested by hand in Brittany, France. What? This extraction method follows a 2000-year-old Celtic traditional technique, involving the collection and evaporation of seawater in salt pans. French grey sea salt is known for its higher than usual moisture content and unique light grey color.
This explains the texture of the salt in the Pursoma bag — it’s almost wet, which I’ve never seen, and now I know why!
Pursoma Digital Detox SLEEP Bath Soak
This is my second favorite of the three — I’m obsessed with sleep products, so this should come as no surprise.
The scent with this one is coconut and vanilla, which is different for a sleep blend, but it’s very light. I wouldn’t say it made me sleepy, but most “sleep” bath products don’t (except for Lush Deep Sleep).
I did a little digging about ethical sourcing of bath salts, and I couldn’t find much, which makes me assume this is another beauty/wellness product that isn’t often ethically sourced. I looked up the other bath salt I like to use: Kniepp, and was relieved to see tons of information on their site about their efforts for sustainability and ethical sourcing.
Pursoma Sweat It Out BODY Bath Soak
This one is my least favorite — although the most interesting out of the bunch — because it smells like tea, and I’m not a huge tea gal.
The scent is a mix of ginger and blood orange, and this soak is particularly good for after a workout, which I enjoy.
All of these salts are so nice and well worth the price. I also like that they last longer in the water and don’t just disappear as soon as you toss them in the water. You can use as much or as little as you like, and I suppose you could mix the salts if you wanted!
I will definitely be purchasing more of these once my bags are empty 🙂 Pursoma also has body oils in these same three scent blends to use after the bath, which I will definitely be checking out!
