A few weeks ago I was wandering around the dreamy, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa when I spotted the cutest little bath product boutique called Basin White. I walked in and immediately felt like I was at the gates of heaven. The store is black and white everything with clean, crisp, modern lines and bath products as far as the eye can see. It's truly one of the most splendid little shopping spots I've seen.
It wasn't over-run with tourists or children (much like you'd imagine everything at Disney World to be), and we actually had the store to ourselves for a bit. There are products out everywhere for sampling/testing and sniffing in their sweet fragrances. It was like being in a spa, but without actually being in a spa. If you've ever been in a Lush, I'd liken the Basin White to them, but much more zen than the environment in Lush. Basin White is calm, cool and collected in the ambiance regard.
I'll admit, I was a bit overwhelmed while walking around smelling everything and looking at all the labels. I only walked out with two products—both of which I love! The first is a bath bomb in the relaxation scent. I swear it has a gardenia scent and gardenias are my favorite. I also love sitting a tub that smells exactly like gardenias—if only I had some on hand to float in my tub—a girl can dream. The second product I purchased was the shave cream. It comes in a tub and has the texture that's more akin to a thick hair mask than anything you're used to shaving your legs with. I tried it; I love it and it smells good too.
If you don't live in Florida or around the Disney area, you can shop Basin White online. So, don't worry non-Floridians, you can still get your hands on a small slice of heaven.
