Shunga oriental bath crystals - sensual bath by Shunga Erotic Art - review by Eva Schwaltz

Simply Sensual

These bath salts smell lovely, the scent lasts, and they even foam up at first. These would be a great treat for yourself or a wonderful gift for someone you love.
Lovely floral scent, large amount, shell and candle included, softens skin
Contains glycerin, scent may be too strong for some

extremely useful review


The Oriental Bath Crystals from Shunga are honestly the best bath salts I have found yet. You have the choice of three wonderful fragrances, Ocean, Aphrodisia, and Lotus Flower. If these were a little cheaper, I’d get them all, but I chose Aphrodisia. They come in a nice tin that holds a sea shell for scooping, a candle, and the salts themselves in a bag. I recommend keeping them in the bag so the oils don’t dry out. Yes, there are oils and dead sea salts to soften your skin, but there is glycerine and a lot of fragrance which may irritate some women.

The ingredients are: Sodium chloride (Dead Sea salts), Sodium lauryl sulfate, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate, Fragrance, Glycerin, Carthamus tinctorius (Safflower oil), Prunus dulcis (Almond oil).

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The salts have a fine, sandy consistency to them. They take a little longer than other salts to dissolve, but they produce little bubbles under running water and color the water blue. It’s very relaxing. Unfortunately these bubbles don’t last very long, only about 5 minutes.

Taste / Aroma

The Aphrodisia scent is very strong, but I actually love it. The scent weakens when used in the bath but it still lingers for the entire bath. They have a floral soapy smell, but I can’t exactly pinpoint which flowers. The scent doesn’t last on my skin after my bath, but I prefer to use other oils or lotions to keep my skin moisturized.


I don’t know why I left these untouched for so long, but once I finally used them, I was completely flattered. I wanted to bathe in these for hours because they are so relaxing. I got a very large sea shell with my kit, so one scoop of it probably equals about three table spoons, more than enough for a single bath.

I don’t like using candles during my bath so I used it separately. It had no scent, and burned for a couple of hours.

The lid of the tin pops up like a paint can. It took me a while to figure out how it worked because the button attached to the ribbon was completely inside the tin when I received it. You are supposed to leave the button on the outside of the lid with the ribbon tucked in to open it easily.

The tin holds 20 ounces of salts so I’ll probably get 15 baths out of it. It’s a large amount but totally worth getting for yourself or a friend.
Follow-up commentary
These were one of my favorite back crystals I ever got to try. It's a wonderful purchase you can make for yourself or for a friend.

    I'm glad you liked these! I have the green and love them! I think I've had mine since Dec. and still have a bunch. I don't use em' daily though. I have been wishing I'd have gone with this scent instead lately. For some reason, the scent I have isn't really something I love anymore. Lol. It's lovely though and smells very clean. I was surprised at how much I liked these too Lovely review! I bet this one smells great. I may try them when mine run out.
