Today I have a review of Lush's limited-edition Valentine's Day Close to You massage bar!
This was really kindly sent to me for review. :}
Here is the Lush description:
"Scrumptious vanilla bar
Made with luxurious butters and a delicious vanilla scent, this sweet massage bar is guaranteed to bring someone special close to you! This is one of our smooshable bars, which can be pressed between your palms, melted and used for one glorious, all-over body massage. It’s inspired by a British cookie called the Jammy Dodger, which is made of shortbread with raspberry jam in the middle. If you peek in the heart-shape on the top of the massage bar you’ll see the scrumptious white fondant center."This smells exactly like Snow Fairy shower gel!! :D Which means that this awesome massage bar has that same delicious marshmallow Easter egg fragrance! (Seriously, it smells *exactly* like marshmallow Easter eggs to my sister and I!)
Here is the list of ingredients:
Organic Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii) ,Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum murumuru) , Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) , Olive Oil (Olea europaea) , Organic Agave Syrup (Agave tequilana) , Fragrance , Cupuacu Butter (Theobroma Grandiflorum) , Cornflour (Zea mays) , Glycerine , Methyl Ionone , Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia) , Titanium Dioxide , D&C Red No. 27 , D&C Red No. 33 , FD&C Red No. 4
This is also very moisturizing!! :D With ingredients like shea, murumuru, and cupuacu butters and almond and olive oils, it is a serious treat for the skin! :)
It melts instantly on contact with your skin, which makes it a perfect massage bar indeed! This also means that it should be stored in a cool environment, so be sure to have a solid container to keep it in.
I think I will use this as a mix between a moisturizer and perfume. XD It smells SO yummy, and I don't want to use this up too quickly. :D
As tempted as I am to smoosh it up and rub it all over, I will resist that urge and keep it in my tin, to swipe it across my arms when I want a sugary-sweet boost. If I can manage to keep some of this for Easter, I will use it with my Snow Fairy shower gel and wander around smelling like a giant Easter egg! :D And then I will proceed to eat Easter eggs. Mmmmm delicious!
If you are a Snow Fairy fan, then I would really REALLY recommend getting this. If you don't, you may kick yourself in the butt later, and that is never any fun!
Another winner Lush, and I hope that you bring this around again so your fans can continue enjoying it!
Have you tried any of Lush's Valentine's Day treats yet?
Have an amazing day! :D
