Review - Ameliorate Softening Bath Milk Oil
I would like to share with you my experience and thoughts on this new Ameliorate bath product, which was kindly sent to me by the brand.
I don’t write a lot of reviews but Ameliorate has a special place in my heart as their products help me every day to love my skin as KP (Keratosis Pilaris – AKA 'chicken skin') sufferer.
I do use my beloved Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion on my legs every single day. That is where KP affects my skin the most. I have written a review on this product too. If you are interested, you can read it here.
Therefore I was very excited to try another product by Ameliorate which is, in fact, the UK’s first dermatological skincare brand, proven to help rough, dry, bumpy skin.
Let's start with Active Ingredients
Softening Bath Milk Oil contains Colloidal oats (very finely milled oats) that are very soothing and nourishing to the skin. Also, they are rich in beta-glucans, which can reduce skin inflammation, boost collagen production and also act as a humectant (attract moisture to the skin). This magical grain has been used for centuries in baths and soaps, to soothe eczema, bug bites, itchy and dry skin. No wonder why Ameliorate used it as one of the main ingredients in this luxurious Bath Milk Oil.
Another lovely and well-known ingredient - Sweet Almond oil that is rich in oleic and linoleic fatty acids which soften and moisturise the skin.
This fabulous formulation also contains Ameliorates unique LaH6 Hydration complex of six active moisturisers and exfoliating lactic acid.
In addition Starflower and Camelina Flower Omega oils strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier and maintain moisture levels in the skin.
That is why I find Ameliorate products so effective because they use active ingredients and do clinical trials before releasing each product.
My experience and results on the skin
Here I want to share before and after pictures of my skin, to showcase how effective this Softening Bath Milk Oil actually is.
The pictures speak louder than words, don’t they?! My skin looks much smoother, healthier and skin tone appears less blotchy. And this is only after one use! My skin also feels very soft and hydrated without any oily residue after I use Ameliorates Softening Bath Milk Oil. I can have a bath and get dressed up straight away.
For my bath, I pour one capful of Ameliorate Softening Bath Milk Oil into a warm bath whilst the water is still running and soak for at least 15 min.
The product feels more milky than oily and it leaves my skin incredibly soft and hydrated. I don't need to moisturise after the bath, a decent soak is absolutely enough.
However, I do moisturise with my Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion once a day, after a shower to maintain smooth skin in between bathing rituals. I even, sometimes, use a dollop of this lovely Softening Bath Milk Oil on my body sponge when I'm taking a shower. I know I should get Ameliorate Nourishing Body Wash instead. It is on my list.
I absolutely love the ritual of bathing. I believe in its therapeutic benefits for the body and soul. Even though I take showers every day, this brilliant product reminds me to make time for myself, at least once a week, and have a well-deserved Cleopatra milk bath ritual.
It would make a beautful present for anyone who likes taking a bath or needs a reminder to love the skin that they are in.
DISCLOSURE - The 'Before' picture was taken in the evening, of my skin, before I took a bath. The 'After' picture I took in the morning, so please excuse the different light. However, the pictures have no filter and haven't been edited.
