Review: They have a very neutral smell unlike other bath additives which can be overbearing, so it didn't feel like I was using anything from the sea but similarly nothing that was too over processed either. The salts were gentle and didn't discolour the water, so I didn't feel like my skin was being invaded with unnatural chemicals and colorants.

My skin felt relieved afterwards and certainly it helped the more angry parts of my eczema that had been causing me discomfort before.
