California Breeze Bath Salts, 2 pound Luxury size is the perfect gift for a good friend. I say "gift" because if you are purchasing for yourself, it is wise to buy a much larger bag! The price of this gift bag is comparable to other 16 ounce bath salts of this type.
The scent is lovely: a blend of flowers that is neither cloying nor unmemorable. This fragrance would be lovely as an accompanying roll on oil so that the scent of the bath is enhanced and sticks with you all day. What a pleasant substitute for heavy and expensive perfumes! Even after finishing off the salts, I have kept the bag just to remind myself of the refreshing scent. Very nice.
The salts are tinted blue so when you do add them to your bath water, the water does change color. However, this does not mean that the tub will wear a blue ring afterwards. I used these salts about four times and have had no incidence of tub discoloration.
The salts do soften the skin and provide a wonderfully luxurious sense of stress relief. I found myself wanting to linger in the bath well beyond the point where the water was becoming cool and my skin going into "prune" mode. Not a problem! My skin felt soft and smooth afterwards as if I had rubbed it with a sugar/salt rub rich with emollients. The scent does linger for as long as it possible can--again that oil roll-on would come in handy to prolong the entire experience.
The San Francisco Salt Company sent me a complimentary bag of this in exchange for an honest review.
Bottom line? Looking for a lovely gift that the recepient cannot fail to love? Try the San Francisco Salt Company! Bathing in California Breeze Bath Salts will result in frequent California Dreaming! These Bath Salts are lightly scented with a delicious floral blend that is a treat in itself. Add to that a mixture of sea salt, glycerin, and aloe vera and you've got stress relief in a tub. The price is comparable to other brands; the experience exceeds them. Recommended. Diana Faillace Von Behren "reneofc"

What are some of the other general benefits of bathing with bath salts?The minerals found in sea salt are absorbed through the skin which are essential to the bodies' functions. Bath salts flush out harmful toxins from the body. They also exfoliate the skin, leaving the skin smooth and supple while helping to heal cuts, burns, wounds, and insect bites. They're also a good stress reliever!
