Lush Close to You Massage Bar

Hello everyone :)
I've been slightly MIA on here lately...oops, and I feel really bad after setting my self the goal of posting more this year! I'm just so lazy, even when it's something I love! I think I definitely need to start scheduling posts so I can write a few when I feel in a bloggy mood and then spread them out! Anyway, Valentines day has been...and gone and yet I'm still doing a little review of this valentines product from Lush as it's still available to buy!

(Sorry it's round the other way, it's really annoying me but no time to take another the right way round!)

If you've never tried or come across a 'massage bar' from lush before, it is essentially a body lotion in solid form. It contains lots of butters which on contact with warm skin begin to melt, so all you do is rub it in between your hands a bit and then rub on. I think the majority do it this way but you could also break a little piece of and use it like that!

I was excited to see a limited edition massage bar called 'Close to You' (£5.50) as usually, they don't usually come around all that often and I was even more excited on discovering it has the scent of one of my favourite lush bath products - creamy candy bubble bar! I actually ordered this online a few weeks ago along with some other goodies which will feature in a haul soon but I had smelt it quickly in stone and seemed lovely. This is quite a 'novelty' product, it's a little more messy and fiddly than a body lotion in a tube but they do feel nice when you apply it and they are lovely and moisturising. I find the scent lingers for a long time and is quite strong which is a good thing but unfortunately, for this one, it wasn't great for me! I love the creamy candy scent, but in this type of product I found it way too sickly and overwhelming and after the first few uses I haven't used it again as it makes me feel a little sick :(

I may put a little in the bath and see if it works as a bath melt? I'm sure the scent would be a lot softer but would linger! I do like the lush massage bars (I am a fan of 'Each Peach') and I would recommend this if you like the smell - but be warned it is rather strong!

This is still available online and I'm sure it will be in store too for a while as they sell it until they sell out! Will you be grabbing it before it's gone?

  1. I got a massage bar in the Lots of Love gift set and I really like it. Their massage bars just melt in your hands. I haven't tried this one but it doesn't sound too promising if it gets sickly!

  3. This product looks great, but I'm so disappointed they're not doing it super cheap like they do with all the Christmas products!

    1. Yeah, they unfortunately only ever have a sale on their Christmas items :( I wish they did it on their other Limited edition ranges x
