An absolutely brilliant idea. These look like tiny white-chocolate chocolates, and the idea is that you peel off the wrapper and put them in the bath.

Children adore them and they moisturise the water, ergo your skin, beautifully; particularly if you live in a hard water area. Your skin comes out feeling really soft and moisturised and (at least, in my experience, I live in a very hard water area but we do have a water softener) there’s no need to apply moisturiser unless you want to. They strike me as super useful if you suffer from very dry skin, have eczema or your child does, or you just want an extra bit of dewiness to your skin, particularly in winter time when the heating goes on and your skin gets parched.

Be careful: these can make the bath very slippery after use.
