Review: Lush Ltd. "Happy Blooming"

Tonight's bath was a bit of a disaster...

I think it takes a lot of skill [or not, as the case may be] to completely bugger up bath time -- but somehow I've managed it today! What a moron!

After looking at the "Happy Blooming" bath melt on lush.co.uk for some time, I thought I'd order this along with the rest of my haul and to be perfectly honest, I wasn't really sure what to do with it! Epic FAIL on the bath front, considering I'm supposed to be a bath 'pro' too... this is an awful predicament!

Anyway... moving on... here it is! The 'Happy Blooming' bath melt:


Lush say:

The happy, mouth-watering, fruity fragrance is down to Simon's 'Cherry Chops', named in honour of beautiful cherry blossoms. You get three baths out of each one ? just snap off one segment per soak and its blend of calamine, ylang and cocoa butter will leave your skin silky and non-greasy. We think it's blooming marvelous, and we're sure you will too.

My first mistake was to put the melt in the water AFTER the tub had filled... which turned out to be the complete opposite of what you were supposed to do... needless to say - it didn't do the melting bit!
Here's the actual instructions:

Drop half or a whole bath melt into the tub as it fills with warm water. When the tub is full, get in and let the natural oils soften and moisturize your skin.

Oops - Never mind!!! I only used a third of the melt but if you'd like an intense soak you might as well chuck the whole thing in there!

I did enjoy my bath... but unfortunately the bath melt was a little too oily for me and left a kind of residue on my skin. It's not all bad - I smell YUMMY now!

  1. I've also tried this one before, smells gorgeous! But quite oily... xx

  2. Glad I'm not the only one! Definately too much oil for moi!
    The smell is incredible though! x
