I don't bother with this as a massage bar but I use this as a lotion. It is moisturizing (a tad greasy) and it smells wonderful.

Love the smell but not the texture, it feels thick, greasy and waxy. Plus massage bars do not melt in airconditioned rooms. There is just not enough body heat to melt it with my hands. They are also generally very greasy and gets on my clothings and table etc anywhere i touch after using it.

Smells nice, like a sweet faux strawberry scent. Yes it is greasy but if you just rub it lightly over your skin til it starts melting a bit, then rub it in, it's fine. But it is easy to over apply. Probably wouldn't buy again because its kind of a hassle compared to regular lotions. I wish they made this scent in a 'liquid' lotion!

The product is great, but I have my reasons for rating it so low. First of all, I understand that LUSH doesn't like to use packaging, and I find that to be okay with soaps since you can rinse them, but this is a lotion. And I am putting it all over my body, after it's been touched by a ton of people. I was however, able to buy one that was already wrapped up in the paper packing. I love the idea of a lotion being in the form of a bar. It smells nice, and my boyfriend loves the smell of it, probably more than I do. It leaves my skin so silky and soft, better than most lotions I have used. It also adds a nice shine from the oils. I wish there were more product for the price, I find that the product is used up too quickly. It melts at body temperature so you can not massage it on for too long or you'll use the whole thing right up. It's pricey for the amount of actual product you get. Regardless of the things I don't like about it, I still really love the fact that it's a bar lotion (NEAT!), and it smells so wonderful, and the oil's in it really leave my skin feeling like no other lotion! I will definitely buy it again, but I wish changes were made. :)

Been eyeing this girlie pink strawberry cutie for a few months now, and finally picked one up. At first, I couldn't recall what the familiar scent (strawberry. hibiscus flower, cocoa, coconut oil) reminds me of.... creamy berry floral.... mmm, I like it, but this smells like Yankee Candle "Strawberry Buttercream"... yesss that's it, lol. It's a pretty light scent, however, I can see this possibly becoming irritating to someone with fragrance sensitivities, like me. I like LUSH'S massage bars even though most of them can be quite oily.... better suited for cooler weather or at bedtime. *Strawberry Feels Forever* helps my feet feel soft and smooth as a babies skin... and love this after a shower because it quickly gets the job done without being overkill. This one is much lighter, more wearable, and great for younger girls as well to try .... especially nice with a light dusting of Vanilla Puff powder.

I pair this with Mange, too and I smell like chocolate covered strawberries. It may be a little strong for some people, but I love it. It's very greasy so I have to rub it in but I really just use it for the scent. I love the concept, but honestly my Lubriderm lotion moisturizes much better so I won't be buying again.

I love the smell of this massage bar, and it is definitely moisturizing. However, It leaves me feeling SO sticky and grimy, I don't think it's worth it when I can just use lotion that does the same thing and doesn't feel oily.

The smell of this bar is absolutely to die for but unfortunately it makes me break out all over my back when I use it as a massage bar. Now I just use it as a post-shaving leg moisturiser, which is excellent.

A decent massage bar full of oils and butters.
Doesn't smell truly like strawberry to me, maybe faintly but the other oils and butters over power the strawberry scent.
Decently moisturising and this is a bigger massage bar compared to the others.
Would maybe repurchase on a whim.

Yum yum yum! It smells like real strawberries, and is even shaped like one! So cute :) I love the way this feels when I use it in the shower.

I absolutely love this massage bar and have bought it three times now! I love the sweet smell and the consistency is great. The strawberry shape and pink colour is really cute. This absorbs into my skin really well, but can sometimes leave my legs a little greasy, however after a few hours they feel really smooth and moisturised. The smell lasts all day and it's a really good quality product. I know some people complain that it is too sweet, but I love it! I sometimes wish it was a little thicker, but this is not reason enough to remove a lippy.

This is a little bit too sweet for me. It has that artificial strawberry smell that is quite overwhelming IMO. The shape of this massage bar is rather inconvenient and the consistency is very oily and is not easily absorbed. I still use it in the winter when my skin is extra dry and usually half of it is absorbed by my pyjamas! Also the lack of packaging is rather annoying, especially considering the price. I might try some other massage bar by Lush but I would not repurchase this one.

I love the smell of this product, it is hands down the girliest smelling product Lush has even over Snow Fairy. This product smells like a yummy strawberry milkshake and the scent lingers on the skin for a few hours. This massage bar is very moisturizing, however, it melts very fast, faster than the others! For that reason alone I will probably not repurchase it. I used this product SPARINGLY every day and it only lasted me less than two weeks.

OK so this doesn't smell quite like strawberry but smell is still pleasant. I like to use this before I go to bed the next day my skins is so hydrated. For me the only down side is the price but i will still buy this massage bar aging. I might have to stock up before its discontinued.

In the store it smelt like a faint strawberry but once i actually used it for the first time at home it was a super-strong cheap-fake smelling berry scent. It's not like the yummy creamy strawberry smell i thought i would get but instead something overly-sweet and very sickly :(. I do feel let down about this one as i was looking forward to trying it out.

Smells vagueley of synthetic berries if you look at the strawberry shaped prooduct with the strawberry name and think that the synthetic, sweet, plasticky-floral cocktailish fragrance is supposed to be strawberry. I don't think anyone would identify this as strawberry otherwise. Fragrance lasts hours and hours and hours until I finally can't take it anymore and wash it off. I put this on before bed one night and the next day could not figure out why I smelled like I'd been bar hopping all night; it was this massage bar. Smells very similar to the rightfully discontinued Strawberries and Champagne body line from Victoria's Secret (another "imaginative" strawberry scent).
The bar itself doesn't absorb as well as other massage bars. Lasts forever though. Wish it didn't.

I also didn't think this smelt like strawberries. To me, it's more of a sweet floral scent. I use this mainly on my elbows, legs and heels which tend to get the driest. You have to use this straight out of the shower or else it might be a bit difficult to warm up (since it melts on contact with warm skin). I didn't like how it left a greasy feel (much more greasier than that of a traditional body butter) and glides on unevenly. The fragrance tends to linger for a much longer time when compared to their other products. It wasn't unbearable, but if your sensitive to stronger scents than you might want to skip this. I store mine in a plastic zip-lock bag to prevent it from melting everywhere. Overall, it's a nice concept, but far too gimmicky for me. I'll stick to the normal body butters and lotions.

this strawberry massage bar smells amazing and softens up in your hand soon after applying. it is quite hard to rub in but overall its great.

This product is really cute and satisfies the little girl in me. The scent smells like strawberries and cream- but to be more precise, it reminds me of Breyerís Strawberry ice cream. It smells identical to Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel (which has been discontinued). As a massage bar, it is one of the better formulas. Not only is it effective to use as a solid body oil for giving yourself (or a special partner) a pleasant massage. After youíre done rubbing it in, it starts to sink in, leaving your skin lightly moisturized, while smelling of sweet strawberries. I prefer to use mine in the evening; especially if I was at the gym; because it feels good to pamper yourself before bed. Not to mention, the aroma is very comforting, it clings to your skin all night and even into the day, if you donít shower. Since it does contain a considerable amount of oil, it also takes a while for it to sink in, if you use it by day, you might feel a little greasy.
Overall, I donít see myself running back to Lush every time mine runs out. I see myself using this once and a while when I am especially craving strawberries.

Where is everyone smelling the strawberries and cream from? I only smell cocoa butter. Please be warned - this smells like cocoa butter and cocoa butter only!
Anyway, I don't recommend this for use as a solid lotion. This left me feeling dirty out of the shower because it's so greasy. Usually, I wouldn't mind lotion greasiness, but this one is almost sticky. And I hate the scent of cocoa butter. I hate the smell of this thing. Did I mention that?
However, it'd be pretty difficult for Lush to mess up the meltability of this thing, and the sucker is pretty good to use for a massage - which was the point of it in the first place. My biggest point though: don't market this as smelling of strawberries when it's purely cocoa butter scented.
