Review: Lush Massage Bars


Toss me in the bad blogger section... aside from being a bit AWOL (life's been crazy!) I got a request to review these some time ago and was happy to take the challenge. The order came, I used, I liked, but I never reviewed. Kind of missed the main point of testing something for review. Today I make good, and finally get to the goods.

Lush has massage bars in just about every scent one could ever want, so picking just one was not going to happen. I ended up with three: Strawberry Feels Forever, Each Peach (and Two's a Pair), and Heavanilli. Each massage bar serves the same function, and I found that each variety worked equally well.


"Massage bars are another LUSH invention and where would the world be without them? Lovely solid bars of moisturizing butters and gorgeous essential oils melt on warm skin instead of messing about with bottles. Plus, they're preservative-free for a conscience and body pleasing mode of relaxation. The hardest part of using them? Trying to convince someone that massage is a much better sport reciprocated."-Lush website

Strawberry Feels Forever is not only cutely shaped like an overgrown strawberry, but it is made with fresh strawberries (among other good things) and you can see bits of pulp and seeds in the bar. I was a bit disappointed with the scent of this. It is not scented like a strawberry milkshake, or white chocolate covered berries as the reviews would lead one to believe. To me this is more floral than sweet. It does not have a bad scent, but strawberry is not that detectable.


Each Peach (and Two's a Pair) Don't get all confused by the name... there is nothing peachy about this (boo! because I love peach scented anything.) Each Peach is a citrusy concoction of lime, orange, grapefruit and lemon. In the end you really get a blast of general citrus scent that is fresh and clean. No floral throw like 99% of Lush products.



Heavanilli is scented with Lush's signature Vanilliary fragrance, which if you are familiar with it, is not as vanilla-y as one would expect. The massage bar does have some vanilla throw, and on first sniff almost smells a touch like a doughnut. Once you sniff a bit more you get the slightly powdery notes of jasmine and then tonka. While this isn't as sweetly vanilla as I'd like ( a statement I throw out to all the vanilla products I've tried from Lush) it is a pleasant scent.

As for the product itself... it is super simple to use: just glide it along as if you were lathering up in the shower. Of course instead of soap, you're getting a moisturizing coat of, well oils. I was expecting these to end up being messy, but they have a slow melt and absorb quicker than expected. I like to use these right after before bed shower to optimize the moisturization capabilities and keep the oils on my pjs. That said, I have had no staining issues on clothing or sheets, because the oils really do absorb quite well. At almost $10 a piece, they might seem a bit pricey, but one bar is going to last you quite a while.

Have you tried Lush Massage Bars? What did you think?
