I LOVE this massage bar! The smell is absolutely divine! I rub this all over me after a shower, and I cannot stop sniffing myself! It has such a creamy scent that is addicting! It does take a little bit to soak into your skin, but I always take a shower right before bed, so when I wake up in the morning, my skin is so soft and smooth. It has really made a difference in my kp.
This is also the best deal for a massage bar. It is really big, and will probably last me a few months. Totally worth it!
The only issue with it is that it won't fit in any of the Lush tins. At the moment, I'm keeping it in the bag it came in. I will have to look elsewhere to find something more permanent since I will be buying this over and over.

Unbelievably gutted that Mange was discontinued :(. It was my favourite massage bar (I've got half of one left) & I always got excited at the thought of a satisfying shower & some white chocolate, honey, peppermint goodness gliding onto my skin afterwards. Plus, it holds fond memories for me - my first love used to rub it on my legs :P. Hoping that one day it might be brought back.. Bugger eating dessert & fretting about it going to the hips - just have some Mange on your skin!

Mange too is a nice product but something I don't really need. It doesn't melt as fast as other massage bars but it does give out lots of nice butters and oils. The product can be greasy and takes a while to absorb. You can also use their dusting powders to absorb the extra grease. It does moisturize well and you could use it at night before bed so it has time to fully sink in. The scent is ok. Some may like it others may not. It smells white chocolate-y but kind of smells weird too. One problem with this product is that doesn't fit into any of their massage tins. You can always put this in a Tupperware or ziplock and leave it in a drawer or your closet if you like the scent. It will make everything smell like it.

I bought it for it's moisturizing properties. I have very dry skin and was looking for something a bit more inviting than my usual petroleum jelly and lotion mix.
It's a thicker consistency which works for my skin. But it's annoying to use as a bar as it tends to exfoliate my hair as I pass it over my body. I have relatively fine hair so I don't shave or wax my body hair. So then I end up having to scrape off that excess hair, wasting this high priced product.
So I now use it exclusively for my hands and for my lips. Works great for this.
As long as you're looking for something a bit thicker as a moisturizer and are willing to shell out the money, I would most definitely suggest this product. But to my hairier friends, I say stay away from it.

This is one of my favorite LUSH massage bars. I use it primarily as a moisturizing bar at night and love it in the winter when my skin is very dry and itchy. Plus is lasts FOREVER. Literally, I've had it for over a year and the bar is less than half gone. It's very worth the 10 bucks or so that it costs.
I am not crazy about the smell but it is warm and pleasant enough, especially in winter.
It is quite oily so if that bothers you, you probably won't like this.

I really was excited to get this product. I had heard a lot of great things about the way it moisturizes and the scent. I put it on after taking a shower, and the next morning I woke up with a rash on the left side of my stomach. I have never broken out when using a product on my body, so I was really surprised. I'm disappointed and upset. Needless to say, I will never use this product again. And I'm going to try to return it.

I'm fairly new to Lush things, but I loooooooove this massage bar!! A Lush store just opened in my town, and this was the only massage bar that I really loved. The smell was downright heavenly, which surprised me since some of the notes smell chocolatey (any beauty product that usually has a chocolate scent just makes me nauseous). This is a bit greasy, so I rub it on before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my skin's super soft! My scent-sensitive roommate says this is too strong for her, so I wouldn't recommend it to people with sensitive noses or scent related allergies, but the scent really tones itself down the morning after I've applied it. Overall, a fantastic product! Would buy again and again and again!

I just got this last week and have been using it every day or two after my bath. It has already made a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin and gotten me compliments like "your skin is so soft!". The bar is HUGE. Will not fit in the square Lush tin (yet). It is fairly greasy, which is why I only put it on at night... sometimes I use a Lush dusting powder on top (Silky Underwear is lovely with this!). The smell is strong for me and very much like white chocolate, honey, and cocoa butter... which is another reason I won't wear it during the day, esp when going to work! I think the sweetness would give me a headache after a few hours and I'd definitely have coworkers wondering if someone brought in treats to eat. Can't wait to try this as a massage bar. I wish they made this bar scented like King of Skin, which is a great bar but I don't care for the oatmeal bits in it. Great value for the price and cocoa + shea butter is so good for the skin!
Edited 12/16/12 to add: My husband now uses this bar for his very dry legs, LOL. It seems to help with the itching. I will have to buy him his own bar. I still use it at night and the scent is very comforting & powdery. I will have to buy a new bar soon, we love it so much.

I bought this purely based on the smell. I layer this with the strawberry feels forever massage bar and I smell just like chocolate covered strawberries. Might be a little much for some but I love it. The smell lingers all day. It is very greasy so I have to rub it in with my hands. I can't wear perfume with it because the scent is so strong, but the sent is divine. As for moisturizing properties...ehh it's ok. I never feel like it really sinks all the way into my skin. I use this more for the scent.

I love Lush massage bars. It's a unique product and it's a good one. There are so many massage oils out there sold in bottles, and they get messy very fast. This neat little chunk of yumminess gets slick and work similarly to oils but eventually stays solid at room temperature. I store mine in a plastic bag and that's been working fine for me. It smells like Honey Trap and I love the smell. It is strong but it fades pretty quickly once I put clothes or pajamas on. I let it sink in for a few minutes after I use it post-shower to moisturize before I put my clothes on. I have tried the Hottie massage bar before and they both moisturize well and work well for massage. I got Mange Too this time around because it's the best value. But I will definitely try the other Lush bars to treat myself and a partner to a new scent: love these massage bars and will stay a loyal customer if only for these.

Kind of dissapointed with this, it isn't horrible but isn't great either. It smells delicious. It is overly greasy, even when just putting on a thin layer, and never seems to completely absorb. After two uses I am breaking out horribly on my chest and neck area, and it seems to be making the KP bumps on the back of my arms even worse. :( it does feel nice on legs after shaving, but that's about it. I wouldn't repurchase.

For some reason, I thought that this was overpriced when I first bought it. I figured it would only last a few times (I'm an idiot, I know), so I am thrilled to report that 5 months later, I still have 2/3 of the bar remaining. My husband gives me a short massage using this 2-3 times a week, and I'm not sure if it's psychological at this point, but I fall asleep DURING the massage 75% of the time, and on the other occasions, I am asleep within minutes. It's insane, because I am one of those people who will usually lie in bed for 30 minutes to an hour before nodding off.
The smell was odd to me at first, but has since become incredibly comforting. I will definitely repurchase this whenever I run out. Right now, I'm also trying out the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar that one of my employees gave me this week (I must have "STRESSED THE **** OUT" stamped on my face)...

I bought this massage bar and didn't use it for literally two weeks because I just did not know how to use it. But one day after my shower I just rubbed it all over and it made my skin SO SOFT! The price isn't too too bad. It's like $9.95 I think. Since it is so buttery, it will start to melt when you use it from the warmth of your hands.
1. Little confusing on how to apply it (for me anyway)
2. Doesn't have a lush tin that fits it. I just keep it in the bag
3. Leaves skin feelings greasy for HOURS
So basically if you want to use this, I recommend using it before bed so you don't have a greasy feeling when you wake up, and if you do, you can just take a shower.

I had to jump on a write a review on this! This is my first LUSH product!!! I am a convert and now i'm looking through the catalog to see what other goodies I want to get!!! I just bought this today and I used it on my legs and arms, it melted so nicely and I got nice, glowing, moisturized appendages with hardly using any of it! The boyfriend came home from work and...let's just say he was a fan of the effects of this product ;) I highly recommend, gals!

For the price, the Mange Too bar cannot be beat. I don't really like the smell of cocoa butter, but this bar does the same thing for me with a much better smell. I use it mainly on stretch marks, but sometimes I do use it after shaving too. I also have a surgery scar on my arm that I put this on just to keep the skin soft because I find my Mederma kind of drying.
I will repurchase again and again!

I went in to Lush a few days ago and was sad to find out that Business Time wasn't being sold anymore, but pleased to find Mange Too. It smells absolutely delicious! On top of that it makes my skin nice and silky smooth. I'll miss Business Time, but I believe this is my new favorite bar :)

I know smell is a preference, but.. BEST.SMELLING.BAR.EVAH. (and perfect for airline travel... I'm thinking of emptying a push tube container and remelting the bar in).
It is discontinued overseas, and if it ever does the same in the US, you will have to avoid me and my beating stick to get to it!

I like this massage bar a lot. Compared to all the massage bars, you get the most out of your money with this one. To me it smells like a combination of white chocolate, honey, and cocoa butter. I don't think this is a very subtle scent at all, which I definitely like. It's in a nice hexagon shape which is perfect for the whole body. It's a very gentle exfoliator as well. The product does get a little greasy, so I prefer to use it at night before bed. With that being said, storing this may be a problem. It will definitely not fit in any of the LUSH tins, so store this carefully. Oh, and SURPRISE, this product is said to be completely edible! I haven't cut of a chunk to try, but I think I'll just leave this massage bar to moisturize my skin instead.

Mange Too is a beautiful moisturiser with a delicious scent of white chocolate and honey. It is very moisturising and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling delicious. I love that this massage bar isn't oily and I like that it is thick. The shape of it makes it easy to hold. This is one of my favourite (along with Strawberry Feels Forever and Business Time) of the Lush Massage Bars.

I love this massage bar! I use this as my everyday body moisturizer and it smells and feels amazing. It isn't oily or greasy and doesn't leave me feeling sticky or slimy. I used this before church one morning and a little boy said "It smells like pure vanilla extract here!" He didn't like it but I love this yummy scent!
