Next to Heavenilli, this is my favorite massage bar from Lush. The scent as others have said is strong on the white chocolate (which I LOVE) with a hint of honey and vanilla that isn't too sweet smelling or overpowering. I am surprised by the reviews sayign its so strong. I am assuming those folks arent used to very sweet scents. This is mild compared to many I wear but I like foody scents.
I have crocodile skin and this works great as an after shower/before bed mosturizer. I wouldn't recommend using it before putting on clothing besides sweats/pjs because it takes a little while for the oils to sink into your skin. This makes my skin feel so soft and moisturized. My bed smells like this because I use it at night a few times a week.
I higly reccomend it. My only 'gripe' besides the price is that it can make your skin tingle because of the mint. On razor burned legs..OUCH!
I'm a big fan of honey scented things, so it's no surprise that I'm absolutely wild about Mange Too. The fragrance is heady and sweet, lots of honey, white chocolate and a hint of something herbal that I'm guessing is the mint though it doesn't smell minty to me. I tend to use LUSH massage bars as solid moisturizers, and I really like them in that role. They're a bit too greasy to use on the go, or even just on dry skin, but I really like using them just as I'm getting out of the shower. Using them on warm, wet skin makes them glide easily and absorb better and keeps your skin smooth and soft for longer. I rarely have the patience to rub myself down with lotion or body cream, but using a body oil or lotion bar after a shower works well for my routine and my skin.
The scent is really strong both from the bar and on the skin, so you really have to love the fragrance (and boy do I!) to get on with this product so its scent strength will either by a plus or a minus with folks.
My only complaint about this product is the price. $10 for a 3.5oz bar that's been made with pretty cheap ingredients (cocoa, shea and mango butters, bananas, honey) stings a bit, but I've tried to come up with something similar for less at home and can't seem to create something the glides on as well as LUSH bars. They're always either too soft and mushy, too hard or too waxy. I'm willing to pay for their expertise until someone unlocks the secret of making such nice solid moisturizers and sell them for less. Especially if they keep making ones that smell as awesome as Mange Too.
I'm divided about this product... The scent is absolutely love - for a while! But after keeping this next to my bed it just became too much, it started to sicken me since it smells so strong and sickly sweet. I love the ingredients (cacao, shea and mango butter, white chocolate, vanilla, honey and bananas), and they did try to balance the sweet smell with some peppermint and orange oils, but it's still too much to use more than every once in a while (and keep it in a closed container in the meanwhile...). Also, I wanted to use it as a moisturiser as well, but it doesn't really sink into the skin at all, it just lays on top so it doesn't do much good that way - but I guess that's what you want from a massage oil/bar.
I think that a lot of LUSH products are gimmick-y and expensive. This is one of them. The oil does glide nicely over your skin, but that's about it. As other reviewers have mentioned, you could get these moisturizing ingredients in cheaper products. The smell of this is a very strong sweet honey. At first i liked it but as I used it more i found the smell becoming increasingly offensive. Now i think it smells so icky-sweet i don't really want to use the rest of the bar. Will not repurchase.
one word: YUMMY!
gorgeous yummy chunk of goodness!
i broke half of this off to give my boyfriend a full body massage a few times for a Valentine's treat and he was over the moon!
the second half was for me! originally in the block it smells like, peppermint, honey and vanilla. you heat it up in your hands/on your skin and apply to your body. wait a couple of minutes until you put your clothes on as it's very oily. it left my skin softer than any butter has and i kid you not, my skin is left with the distinct smell of WHITE CHOCOLATE all day. this is one of the nicest treats i've ever used on my skin.
i wrap mine up in foil! - which makes it seem even more like food! ;)
Like all the LUSH massage bars, this is pricey given the fact it is made of two very cheap and easily available materials, Shea butter and Cocoa butter and therwfore its obviously smoothing and moisturizing. It is however very greasy and it doesn't absorb well...
This was my first LUSH purchace, and so far I'm kind of regretting it. I'd been dying to own something from LUSH for ages, but I could never bring myself to spend $10 on a small chunk of soap. I chose to buy a massage bar because I loved the idea of having a solid lotion. In the store, this smelt amazing, like yummy white chocolate, honey, caramel and touch of mint. After getting home and testing it out for about the last month, I've decided that I don't really like it. First off, the smell is STRONG. It's an overpowering powdery sweet scent, like the original scent x10. Secondly, this is barely moisturizing at all. All it seemed to do for me was leave my skin feeling oily with lots of shine. The look would be great for going out and making your legs look super smooth, but I'm afraid to leave the house with such a strong smell all over my body. Lastly, I'm not sure how to store this thing. I can't just leave it laying out, or it'll collect dust and get oil and stickyness all over. For nowI just wrap it up in the bag until I can think of something else.
Though I still like the idea of a massage bar and it did seem to fufill the description, I'm just not a fan of the Mange Too. I will continue to check out other massage bars, but I will not buy this one again.
This is a really moisturising massage bar, probably the most moisturising of all the Lush ones. It melts onto the skin really really easily and it does leave you shiny any oily for a while, so no slipping into anything special straight away! An intensley chocolatey honey scent, I can smell the honey more, but what this really reminds me of is a huge toblerone bar.
Annoying that it doesn't fit in a tin, and this isn't a daytime scent for me more of a snuggle up in the evening with a loved one or a good movie and a box of chocolates - yummy yummy, you will wake up with the softest skin ever!
I love this massage bar! It is the best moisturizer I've tried on my reaaaaaaaally dry and sensitive skin. It is now so soft and smooth after a week of using it! Even my hubby loves it too!
I loved the scen tof this bar in the Lush shop... But when I applied it after a shower in my bathroom, the scent was just too much. It almost made me want to gag :( And I'm usually a big fan of highly scented products! The moisturizing quality of this item is very good and applying it was easy and more fun than a regular lotion. I will continue to use this up, but only on my legs :P This leaves your skin greasy for awhile after applying but it is a massage bar so that's what it's supposed to do. I really can't wait to try the other massage bars..If I'd find one that has a scent that would be more to my liking :) Also, the price.. In euros it was 9,95 so...omg! Kinda expensive :(
