Hi there! Today’s post is a product comparison, and it’s about Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak and Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak. They look and sound pretty much the same – but they’re not!
Let’s start with Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak! This one was quite a surprise. I bought it as a refill for the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen when hand soap was sold out at the local shops. But this bath soak is too good to be used as a hand soap because it smells way too good! It’s almost an exact copy of Palmolive’s amazing Aroma Moments So Relaxed bath foam, although the fragrance of the Asda bath soak isn’t as rich or as longlasting as the Palmolive one. However, this bath soak really makes me feel relaxed and sleepy. And priced at 75p for a 500ml bottle, this is a total steal! 🤑
Onto Sainsbury’s The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak! From the bottle, this bath soak smells rather sharp and cold (in comparison to Asda’s bath soak). So my immediate reaction was that it could hardly become a favourite. I thought this one might become the next kitchen hand wash refill, but I still wanted to give it a try. And I’m glad I did! Once dissolved in water, this bath soak is actually even nicer than Asda’s. The scent is richer and even more purple! Awesome stuff! This bath soak is available as 500ml for 90p which is super cheap!
Based on my experience, I would recommend both bath soaks! I have a slight preference for Sainsbury’s bath soak. But I will repurchase both of them!

Hi there! Today I’m doing another product comparison. Not too long ago I told you how Superdrug’s lime & ginger shower gel fared against the classic Original Source lime shower gel. Now it’s time for the Battle of the Lemons! 🙂
Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree is loved by many people. So it’s not surprising that most supermarkets and drugstores now sell their own cheaper alternative. One of those cheaper alternatives is Sainsbury’s Lemon Body Wash.
Both lines are vegan; Original Source’s products are approved by the Vegan Society, whilst Sainsbury’s shower gels are BUAV-approved and carry the Leaping Bunny logo
Let’s start with Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree. This shower gel has been a favourite of mine for many years. I love the cool and zesty lemon fragrance, especially in summer, because it’s very refreshing on a hot day. I also think that this shower gel brightens my skin – it must be the vit C from the lemons.
Sainsbury’s Lemon Body Wash smells fresh and zesty as well, but the scent is much weaker and considerably less natural. It’s not unpleasant, though. In summary, Sainsbury’s did an OK job with its lemon body wash. However, it can’t compete with the original.
In my opinion, Original Source is the clear winner of the Battle of the Lemons. Original Source’s Lemon & Tea Tree shower gel (250 ml) is available for about £2.20, but it can usually be found for £1 somewhere. Sainsbury’s Lemon Body Wash (250 ml) can be yours for 90p or even less if it’s on special offer.
