Before Indie Beauty Expo, I just about followed every brand that was exhibiting that looked even slightly interesting to me and Live Botanical was one. I'm a sucker for packaging and theirs was just so pretty!
I stopped by their booth to look at their collection of products. Particularly, I was looking for products that were different than what I already owned or don't purchase very often. My eyes set on the Oceania Coconut + Bergamot Milk Bath, so I picked up to see how it smelled. Baths are a weekly ritual for me, so I appreciate a pleasant scent. When I inhaled, I couldn't believe my nostrils! The coconut with the vanilla-y scent of Benzoin smelled almost good enough to eat -- like sweet cupcake batter or something. I even picked up a little bit of the lime in there.
Dehydrated Coconut Milk*, Pink Himalayan Salt, Acacia Fiber*, Tapioca Maltodextrin (from yucca root*), essential oils of Benzoin*, Bergamot* (bergaptene free), Lime* and Lavender*

From the packaging: Pour half a cup into a warm bath and soak for 20-30 minutes. Contemplate a walk on a tropical beach with the sun warming your skin.
What not to expect
- Bubbles! This is not going to give you bubbles at all because that's not its purpose.
- Color. It's white, so I'm not sure why this would be expected, but... *shrug*
- This to to be soap.
What to expect
- A sweet, uplifting scent that will make you want to take an impromptu vacation
- A milky bath to soak in and relax
- Oils that soften the skin and deeply moisturize
I received this jar for review purposes during the expo. I have two (maybe three) more baths left out of this jar and every last use was fabulous. Thirty minutes is all you need in this relaxing milk bath! I love to crack the blinds to let in a little bit of sun or listen to my favorite Hulu shows with the lights dimmed.
I will absolutely be purchasing a jar after this one is gone. It's only $22, so about the same as any other product like this from a non-indie brand. In other words, it's very affordable. I'm hoping the owner makes more Milk Bath blends in the future because I would certainly try them. But the best part? There's a Body Cream that pairs with this Milk Bath, too!
