Star Light Star Bright


In honor of Bubble Bath Day, I thought it fitting to review something from LUSH. However rather than reviewing a bubble bar, like any other person would given the day, I've gone with a bath melt just because it's the most recent product I've used.

Tuesday evening I felt very stressed and bogged down by assignments, housework, and trying to squeeze in some blogging. It was one of those days where no matter how much was accomplished, there was still so much to do. All turned out well, though. Part of the reason was because I treated myself to a mini pamper evening. Time wasn't necessarily on my side, but midway through everything I said to myself, "Molly, you need to set everything aside, relax, and take a load off." With that I ran the bath, swirled and crumbled the Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt in it, and was transported to a place of serenity.

As the bath melt dissolved, a pod was revealed that turned the water a lovely clouded turquoise. From the coating of glitter on the melt, a luminous layer was left on the water's surface. This melt gave the bathroom a faint, yet pleasant, aroma. I couldn't pinpoint what the scent was for the life of me, so I looked it up. It smells of "zesty ginger, lavender and lime oil." Definitely wouldn't have guessed that, but oh well, the fragrance was still very nice and calming! What I really love about this product is that organic shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil are key ingredients. These are components that skin just soaks up. They're rich with vitamins, don't clog pores, moisturize, soften, and revitalize. If you want your skin feeling silky smooth, this melt is for you! I highly recommend this to those who are prone to dry skin. Even if you're not, it's winter, so skin tends to need a little more TLC. Bonus: After using this bath melt, you'll look like Kesha for a few days. It's fantastic.
  
Once done with my "#treatyoself" time, I felt refreshed and ready to tick everything off my to-do list. I would definitely like to catch this falling star and put it in my pocket again. It is limited edition (darn!), so if you're interested in it, grab it asap!

Would you try this? If you already have, how did you like it?

  1. There's always so much to do, just gotta make up some extra time somehow. A bath is really relaxing to feel refreshed again. The lavender and like oil sounds like a wonderful scent. The Bath melt looks so pretty! I like stars. The colour of the water is gorgeous too, such a nice blue. Hope you had a nice time to relax. :)

  14. This looks absolutely gorgeous! I rarely buy things from Lush (mainly because I don't have a bath) so I have major envy! :)

  17. I love lush products and this melt looks fantastic. It must have been truly magical soaking in the tub with the turquoise waters and sprinkling of silver glitter. . .like the Caribbean meets fairy dust.
