COTE BASTIDE GROOMING REVIEWWednesday, March 11, 2015
COTE BASTIDE GROOMING REVIEW - Grooming brand that I was not familiar with, but I definitely one of the best amenities that I have ever tried, thanks to Montigo Resort Nongsa. At first I thought, the official bath amenity would be Malin+Goetz (that I'm also crazy about it), but we got "Argan" instead, it looks very classy like Aesop but it wasn't, and the things the brand is Côté Bastide, not Argan, so you will not find anything about this Argan on the internet, unless the keyword is Côté Bastide.
So my experience with Côté Bastide was pretty awesome. One night I was want to do my resort ritual of bubble bathing, but I didn't find any bubble bath liquid in bathroom. I called the room service to brought me bubble bath, they came to me and brought me like 6 bottles of Gel Douche (I mean Gel Douche is like shower gel, it's totally different with bubble bath - Ok I said I will use them all), but instead of use all 6, I only used 1 bottle, this Gel Douche was totally supper bubble maker, I'm impressed.
The smell is sweet, fruity like peach and pretty milky for the moisturizer. If you can imagine Sugus candy.. it reminds me of this Argan grooming kit by Côté Bastide. Me like its sweetness!
