Hall of Fame - The First Recipient

Well I surprised myself with this one. I've been toying with what would be in my own little 'Hall of Fame' for a while - and then I found myself in a very famous department store with a gift voucher - and even surrounded by every other big counter available - I found myself coming back to this.
Three visits later - after thinking 'I should get clothes', 'I could get something for the house', - after thinking 'What do I WANT?' (Why is it always harder to pick something out when you HAVE funds?) I found myself at the Elemis counter saying 'Aching Muscle Super Soak please.'

A bottle of bliss.
Oh Aching Muscle Super Soak - how I love you so.

I don't know about you but if and when I actually get the time to bathe as opposed to shower in 2 minutes flat (with children banging on the door - or just waltzing in as if they own the house - and me) - I do not want to sit in a bath smelling of flowers or something sweet, or something vanilla-ish.

This beast of a potion contains Juniper, Birch, Clove, Alpine Lavender, Wild Thyme and Blue Chamomile and tears a strip off your nose - and your muscles - and your body - and anyone else who happens to be in the vacinity for approx four hours following your bath. It's like Deep Heat on crack.

I'm not kidding. There is only one other brand that does something even close to this (posting soon) - this is hardcore. It says in the spiel that it is suitable for aching, overtired muscles especially after exercise.  *Laughs to self* - yeah - good one. Exercise?? My ENTIRE LIFE is an exercise. Kids. House. Clean. Work. Kids. House. Clean. Work. Rinse and repeat for about 15 further years.

Anyway. There is not enough room on this page to rave about this product.

If you like a bath - buy it.
If you have any kind of muscle ache going on - buy it.
If you 'have it all' i.e. - if you have it all 'to do' - busy lifestyle/tired/recuperating from illness/post baby (not while pregnant!!)/tired and need to wind down - WHATEVER - buy it.

Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak - I salute you. *The Mouth Recommends - HIGHLY

Aching Muscle Super Soak is £32.00 and is available from Elemis Time To Spa here.

What are you waiting for?


  1. Damn that sounds good, but its pricey! Anton has a tendancy to use all my bath products and just tips in any old amount, god if I bought this one, it'd be locked in my safe!


  2. I want to get in a bath full of that right now! I don't quite do it all but my body thinks it does. This sounds like the perfect soak!

  3. Wonderful post as ever. Love the kids, house, clean, work, mantra.

  4. This sounds like exactly what I need on a Saturday night after a week of mani's, pedi's and massages. It also sounds like one of those I hide from everyone else in the house, its sounds like it would be very precious :-)

  5. I don't think I could survive these weeks without mine. Bottle getting perilously close to being empty though. Pray for me.

  6. Sounds fabulous! I love muscle soaks and this sounds like the 'Daddy' of them all! x
