I saw a programme a few months ago that was exposing the bathing industry – DID YOU KNOW that shower gel and bubble bath/bath essence are exactly the same thing, but just labelled and sold as two different products? Scandal, I hear you cry! On my next visit to Superdrug (or was it Boots?), I picked up a bottle of Herbal Essences shower gel and the same fragrance in their bubble bath range – exactly the same ingredients and the bubble bath was twice the size and half the price! Following this revelation, I now buy bubble bath as a multi-use product; shower gel and bubble bath. Now that I think about it, when I was a teenager, I realised we had run out of bubble bath, so I squeezed some shower gel under the running tap instead and noted what amazing bubbles it produced… Always good to read the ingredients methinks.
