Buttery Skin?

Sometimes you just want to unwind and relax in a nice bath tub instead of taking a shower, so for such instances I decided to purchase the Salt Butter Bath Soak by Origins. Like many of the Origins products the ingredients look great, sea salt, castor oil, coconut oil, sweet orange oil and the list goes on and on. It does not include syntheitc colors, parabens, mineral oil, paraffins and other product no no's.
However this product, in my humble opinion does not work to well. You are instructed to put the salts under the running water and the product will soften your skin as you soak in the tub. When I put the salts under the running water it did melt right into the water and you could even see a little milky color appear but that was about it. Maybe the grains melted too quickly to be effective. I scooped out more and dumped it in the bath tub because I was trying my best to make this $30.00 product work. Ummm nope, nothing, nada this just didn't make my skin any softer or silky. I will not make this purchase again so into the SKIP IT files it goes.
Do you have any products that help you to unwind?

There are only a few ingredients and steps to take for making your own natural skin butter. Skin butter can be personalized by using different natural oils and vegetable butters in the recipe. Make small batches because skin butters made without preservatives only have a shelf life of up to six months.
