LUSH - £5.25 for 65g
When I shopping the other week, I decided to pop into Lush and have a browse. I swear that store just sucks me in though because I can never leave without buying something. So I bought this massage bar and a couple other things (reviews to come soon).
I've never used a massage bar from Lush before so I decided to give this one a go. I like the idea of using a bar rather than a massage oil because they can get really messy so this really appealed to me. Although it's called Each Peach, it actually contains no peach extracts or oils and smells more like lemons and grapefruits than peaches but I love that! The main ingredients are cocoa butter, shea butter, avocado butter and mango kernal butter mixed with grapefruit, orange, lime and mandarin essential oils and the smell is just amazing.
To use, you simply rub the masage bar between your hands or directly onto the skin until it starts to melt. I found that it didn't take too long and my hands were covered after a couple rubs so I can imagine the bar lasting quite a long time. It can also be used as a moisturiser for dry skin too, though it did feel a little greasy after Shane gave me a massage and I wouldn't particularly want it on my clothes or in my hair so I personally wouldn't use it as a moisturiser. I also recommend keeping the packaging that it comes in as storage, otherwise it'll make everything greasy.
In terms of massages, we found that it lasted around 10-15 minutes or so before it started drying up to the point of needing to use more but I actually liked that because it sort of ended the massage and I didnt have to worry about going from a nice relaxing massage to jumping straight into the shower to wash it off. It left my skin feeling really soft and moisturised for the next couple days and the smell wasn't too overpowering. Overall, I love this massage bar and will definately be repurchasing it when this one runs out.
