Default Ice Baths; Timing and Effectiveness

I understand the science behind ice baths and it's importance in recovery, my gray area was the time post-exercise for which they can be useful?

When at the gym I have to make do with a reasonably cold shower, but in my opinion it doesn't seem cold enough to cause significant vaso constriction. Post sandbag training etc I immediately fill a bath with cold water, throw in a couple of bags of ice, jump in and try to contain the girly shrills!!
