Are you a bath or a shower kind of girl?
I’m 100% a shower girl…until recently over the last year when I’ve started to love having baths too, mostly thanks to Lush and Miss Patisserie and their amazing collections.
However the majority of the time I still have showers and sometimes it’s nice to have a shower that smells amazing and fills the bathroom with the scent.
This is where the Shower Steamers from Miss Patisserie are awesome.
The description on the website is:
PACKED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS THESE THERAPEUTIC SHOWER STEAMERS ARE PERFECT FOR CREATING AN EXTRA SPECIAL SHOWER EXPERIENCE. PLACE YOUR STEAMER ON THE SHOWER BASIN, TURN ON THE WATER AND THE STEAM WILL SURROUND THE BODY WITH ESSENTIAL OILS.
There are five different types available and I picked up Wake, a beautiful aqua coloured steamer which conveniently matches my bathroom…. 😉
All you have to do with these beauties is put them on the floor in the shower and make sure the water can get to them
The steam then fills the room with the scent of your chosen Steamer, in my case this was Spearmint and Peppermint, two of my favourite scents. These essential oils can help with a cold to relieve your sinuses but also stress and headaches which is something I can suffer with.
So what did I think?
Wake smells amazing as I expected, and my bathroom did fill with the steam smelling of peppermint and spearmint. It was a delicate scent so it could be a bit stronger but maybe if you’re in a shower cubicle and not using it in a shower over a bath then it may be stronger so you don’t want to be too overwhelmed!
I really love the idea of these Steamers and the different scents that can help with a variety of problems such as stress, illness and sleep but I was a little disappointed that it disappeared down the plug hole quite quickly.
Maybe mine was under the direct stream of water too much so next time I try a different scent I will have to put it further away and hope that makes it last a little longer.
However I still enjoyed it and it made my normal quite boring shower that much more interesting and more of an experience. I’d like to try the Breathe steamer when i have a cold to see how much it helps and also the Sunny steamer as it has a citrus scent which is another favourite of mine.
The steamers cost £3.25 each so is definitely a treat and not for every shower, but I would definitely get one again for in the future, and hope next time it lasts a bit longer. Let’s be honest the colour range is pretty enough for me to want them all to keep on display in my bathroom!
What are your thoughts on the Shower Steamers? Have you got a favourite?
I think showers are underrated and there should be more products like this available!
