LUSH "You've Been Mangoed Bath Melt" Review

Quite a few months ago I became quite intrigued with Lush. I watched SO many YouTube videos on different products, and read what seemed like thousands of reviews. I then figured out which products I thought would suit me, and I slaved over the website perfecting my large order. To say the least I was obsessed.

So once I got my order I was pretty excited. Watch my haul video here to see my initial opinions. I've had my lush products for quite some time now so I feel like I'm finally ready to share my opinions.

Last night I used my "You've Been Mangoed Bath Melt" My one main problem with lush products is that I feel like I'm always using them wrong. (Maybe I'm not experienced with them enough yet, I'm not really sure) My bath tub has a lot of trouble with keeping the water hot. It's always room temperature when I go in, which makes the experience that much less enjoyable. SO this time I wanted to make sure nothing would affect my bath so I could fully concentrate on my lush bath melt. In order to do this I boiled water in my kitchen and brought it up to fill my bath. It was a lot of labor but it was some- what worth it.

Before I start on my opinion here's the description the Lush website gives:

"Dip your body into a refreshing and moisturizing buttery bath and you'll come out feeling smoother and cheerier. We add avocado and mango butters into this melt to nourish and soften you up and the invigorating fragrance of lemon, lime and lemongrass. Whenever you need a pick-me-up (morning, noon or night), have a You've Been Mangoed and you'll feel loads better on the inside and on the outside" --Yeah, right.

Once my bath tub was full I dipped the bath melt into the tub and swirled it around for a bit. Nothing happened at first. After a few minutes the sweet-candy (Think Pez) aroma began to fill the room. It wasn't an over whelming scent, rather a subtle smell. However, after a short period of time the scent began to fade, and blend in. After swirling the bar around manually I let it float around by itself when I went into the tub.

After maybe ten minutes the bath tub became "cloudy". It was not orange or any color at all. It almost looked a little dirty (see below)

The smell didn't "linger" on my body after the bath, and it didn't make my skin feel extra soft. I really don't think it did much at all. I'm so disappointed that it didn't work. I was really looking forward to using it. For $5.85 it is most definitely NOT worth it. It really did nothing. I would not recommend this. Don't waste your money. I think some cheap bubbles are a lot more fun.
