Bath Cream War


Remember the Scrub War I did a while ago? Now it's time for the lovely Bath Creams to be put on the spot light. I love bath creams, they're just so fun to use. My first bath cream was from Outtabody, an Etsy store that sells great selection of soaps and they came out with a new product called 'Whipped Soap Mouse' which is basically a bath cream.


I sampled 6 packs of soap mouse and the owner, Khandi, was nice enough to send me a 1 freebies. A week after, she mailed me again, telling me she made a new scent and wanted me to try...so she sent me another one !!! Now I have 8 of samples in cute containers :)

I believe the scents are: Blue Sugar, Tahitian Vanilla, Orange Chiffon Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Grape Cabernet, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cocoa Creme Brulee and Buttercream Frosting

Recently, I also received bath cream from Rainforest Soap Shack, great scents, great products, great selections. I really like this company, if only the shipping to U.S wasn't as expensive I would order from them monthly lol (then I guess it's a good thing, eh?)

Onto the comparison, the products I used here are Outtabody Mint Chocolate Chip and Rainforest Soap Shack Desperate Housewives.

I did test out the products on seperate day, as I wanted to know how long the scent would clung to my skin. I used the same arm just for the clear comparison, and although it seems like I used the Outtabody cream less, I did add a little bit more upon lathering in order to make a fair comparison.

Texture: Outtabody was firm, soft but a bit waxy, it can also used as a shaving cream so it was understandable for it to be really thick. Meanwhile, RFSS seems to be smoother and creamier.

Lathering: Outtabody lathers alright to a slightly clear foam, whereas RFSS does lather more with white milky foam.

Scent: During scrubbing, I could smell Outtabody scent but not strong. RFSS on the other hand gave a crazy amount of scent, even when I just started foaming it with water, it was incredible.

Afterbath: After I rinsed off and toweled, Outtabody left my skin soft but the scent was just lightly noticable. It could be a good thing so the scent wouldn't crash if you decide to put on moisturizer or perfume. RFSS left my skin even softer and the scent clung to my skin even after I walked out the bathroom. 2 hours after I could still smell it on my hand...

Personally, I'd prefer RFSS bath cream as it lathers ridiculously (i'm still 5 at heart LOL) and the scent just lingers so long, I almost couldn't believe it. Outtabody is nice too, especially the Mint Chocolate Chip I used, it's such a yummy minty chocolate-y scent with no fake note whatsoever, and if you look closely in the picture, there are actually chocolate chips in it. I went lol when I found it...

Bath creams does make my bath time a lovely experience, I love them as much as I adore scrubs, and I have so many scents to try..from Outtabody I've tried Tahitian Vanilla, Orange Chiffon Cake, Mint Chocolate Chip and Cocoa Creme Brulee...so far my fav is Mint Chocolate Chip : )

Oh, I did my nails yesterday after almost a month of abandoning my nails with chipped dark purple colors, I looked like I was belong in Emo group bahahaha

OPI Arrivaderci, classic.
