Lush's Mange Too Massage Bar Review

Over the Christmas season, I worked at Lush. I've mentioned it before but in case you're new to my blog, Lush is not as natural as they claim to be and if you're familiar with ingredients, then you'll already know that. I did happen to find a few products that I didn't mind using. This delicious massage bar was one of them.

Description: The sweet scent of chocolate and honey combined with skin-softening bananas and the melt-y abilities of Shea and cocoa butter equals one downright delicious massage. Glide all over your partner (or do some self-pleasuring and rub into your arms and legs), and find out how soft and smooth it gets the skin. We won’t blame you if you take a lick (and maybe a nibble, if it’s consensual); this one tastes almost as good as it smells.

The Good:
  • super moisturizing
  • lickable!
  • delicious ingredients (with the exception of perfume)
  • perfect as a solid moisturizer
  • great for travelling
  • looks like a honeycomb!
The Bad:
  • overwhelming scent
  • contains perfume
  • expensive
Verdict: I picked this up for myself and Marcella because I liked the idea of using it as a solid body butter and I liked the way it smelled. I guess my sense of smell was shot while working there because the scent is so strong. Sickening strong. It works fantastic as a body butter though. It is extremely moisturizing, my legs haven't been dry or itchy since using it. It melts into your skin with ease and not much is needed for each body part. I also love that I can take it when I travel and don't have to worry about it spilling everywhere. Don't judge me on this next part since it technically is lickable but....I licked it! Yes, it's true, I licked it. Just once! It was delicious but the idea of licking a body butter kind of made me sick lol. Aside from the scent, I'm not keen on perfume as an ingredient. Lush claims that most of it is from essential oils but I'm not entirely sold. Was it a big enough issue to keep me from trying it anyway? No. Would I repurchase? Maybe if I was going on a long trip or backpacking across the world.

Retails for $10.95 CAN for 100g. Can be purchased at Lush only.

  1. I am not a Lush fan as the ingredients arent the best and the prices are high, but I love this massagebar. The smell is so awesome! However, they discontinued Mange Too in Germany so it doesnt matter anymore anyway.

    1. Oh nooo! Perhaps I should do a giveaway open to residence of Germany only then :p. I'm surprised, it's a big seller.


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
