I cannot stand the smell to this massage bar. It smelled fine at the store, nice and sweet. It was described as being scented with honey and white chocolate, both scents that I like and enjoy. Once I got home and really got to the bar I couldn't detect any honey or white chocolate, it was just a big cloying mass with peppermint undertones. The scent is so strong you can smell it from across the room. Honestly I can't even stand to put it on myself. Definitely won't repurchase.
I love the concept of Lush's massage bars but this one just didn't work for me. The smell is very strong and too medicinal for me to use all over my body. My mom originally bought this for herself but found the scent gag inducing so she passed it onto me. I use it to massage my feet at night and it is indeed moisturizing. The scent is just too much!
I completely changed my mind on this. Love the smell and I use it everyday after the shower and it doesn't irritate my shaved legs like most lotions. Must have for me now.
very nice massage bar. one of my favorites. the smell is very comforting and relaxing.
this is my favourite massage bar!!
at first i didn't like the peppermint in it, i thought it smelled weird... but after you've applied it's not that strong any more and it smells just sooo nice like honey, white chocolate and a little bit of peppermint! Its not like a overwhelming sweet smell, more like fresh but still sweet (makes sense??)
I've already been through 2 of them and I'll buy them over and over again!! great for dry skin!
It's just love :-)
so this was one of my very first LUSH products i bought and it smells really good in store...but as said from previous reviews it does have that sour scent in it and wasnt what I was expecting when I smell it at home.
However it severs well as a message bar/body moisturiser (altho it feels a little too oily)...
another downside (apart from the price) is that the scent is so strong that every time i apply it after shower my whole flat could smell it! yeah that strong!
YUCK! This smelled great in the store. I guess it's because all of the other lovely scents covered it up. When I got it home I could not stand it! I like the white chocolate smell, and I can detect coffee beans, but something in it smells sour. Now every time I open up my cabinet I want to throw up because it is so strong and my entire cabinet REEKS!! It smells ok on my skin, but I can't get past the stankness to put it on!
Did my first Lush haul today and picked this up with some soaps and some face cleanser samples. I was hoping this would smell more like chocolate, but it doesn't smell like much to me. I liked the smell of the one shaped like a heart (don't feel like looking up the name, sorry) and heard that this smelt similar but I don't really think it does. I bought this one because it is big and seemed like a better deal. The actual product is nice. A little greasy, but since it's supposed to be a massage bar I'm not going to say that's necessarily a negative thing. I bought this to use as a moisturizer and maybe try on my fiance. I'm starting accutane in a month and I think this will work really nicely when my skin gets reallyyyy dry! I'd buy this again, it's a neat idea. I might try another bar first though since the scent isn't as great as I hoped.
Just wanted to say (because this typically doesn't happen) that I put this on after showering in the AM instead of my usual b+b lotion and later that night my legs still felt soft and smooth I couldn't stop touching them! ..And the smell (though not strong) does linger for some time and is pleasing, though still not as pleasing as I would like (especially since I'm in love with white chocolate in real life lol). I bought 5 things from lush my 1st time around and so far, this is the only thing I'm really really loving.
Still love what it does- but I'm going to try another one next time because the scent is starting to annoy me. I can't put my finger on it, but I think I smell 'green' at times. I can't think of another word to use, but whenever I use this I catch a whiff (now and then, not all the time) of like a plant smell or what the color green would smell like lol and it is very weird :-( ..And the smell stays around for a while! I'm going to only use this on my legs for right now..Using it on my arms is too close to my nose!
AND LADIES PLEASE REMEMBER TO STORE THIS APPROPRIATELY. I DIDN'T DO THIS AND IT MELTED COMPLETELY IN THE 90 DEGREE WEATHER :-(
It smells like white chocolate and cocoa butter... someone told me they smell the orange later on. I tried to find the thickest bar they had since I will be using it alot as a moisturizer. I think I smell honey... but with alot of Lush products I cannot tell what they threw in. It's a melting pot.
This massage bar has lasted me a good 6 months now. My bf and I both love the scent. Great massage bar :)
