Lush Montalbano Shampoo Bar Review.

Hey guys!

Today is a review for Lush’s ‘Montalbano Shampoo Bar’!

Enjoy!


Montalbano Shampoo Bar Review:

Rating: 3/5*

Cons:

This shampoo bar actually left my hair feeling quite greasy toward the end of the bar! It didn’t do this at all until the bar was really running out, and then my hair just started to feel kinda greasy AFTER showering, or on some days, by the end of the day my hair would be quite oily. I’m not sure if it is just that continuous usage of this bar causes this, as I do wash my hair daily and it does contain some oils. All I know is this is the first Shampoo Bar from Lush that I have tried that has done this to my hair!

This bar is very soft, and can disintegrate quite easily. If you leave it damp in a tray, a LOT of the bottom of the shampoo bar will become stuck to the bottom of the tray. This is very irritating and probably wasted quite a bit of product for me.

The smell of this shampoo bar does not linger in your hair at all.

This bar has loads of bits in it. It contains fresh lemon peel, ordinary lemon peel, a lemon slice, popping candy, green olives… The lemon slice and lemon peel are very noticeable, and obviously they cannot dissolve and be used up. I find this little bits within the bar INCREDIBLY irritating!

This bar can become very difficult to lather up towards the end of the bar. This can mean going back and re-lathering up your hair multiple times to be able to wash it properly!

This bar will break into little pieces as it gets smaller. These little pieces are quite annoying to use up, fall onto the floor of the shower, get stuck in your hair, and look very messy! My cleaner actually threw a lot of little pieces of this shampoo bar away when she saw them in a tray in my bathroom because of thinking that they looked messy!

This shampoo bar leaves your hair feeling sort of stringy. The mix of ingredients in this shampoo bar make your hair both super squeaky and shiny, and also very stretchy. This sounds good in theory, but it actually just makes you notice your hair pulling on everything, it makes your hair much more difficult to brush through and I just really do not like how this bar makes my hair feel.

The scent of this bar can become quite sickly. It is a very sweet scent.

The residue that this bar leaves behind, in the tray or container you leave it in, is very difficult to wash out – it is a soft, sticky bar that dries very very hard!


Pros:

This bar overall smells divine! It smells a lot like lemon sherbet sweets. Really delicious smelling!

Although this bar making hair stretchy is very annoying, it is quite good for your hair, as it means your hair is breaking less. This means healthier hair when you use this bar.

The concept of this bar is very nice – it is supposed to make your hair look super luscious, thick, healthy and shiny.

The ingredients in this shampoo bar are mostly very natural. Washing your hair with such natural ingredients feels so good!

I love the colour of this shampoo bar. It is a nice, sunny, lemony yellow colour.

In general, this shampoo bar works quite well. Before the bar begins to run out, it does wash the hair very well and does make it squeaky clean, super shiny and much, much more resistant to breakage. So it does generally do what it is meant to do!

It comes without packaging, so buying this bar is helping the environment.

It is from Lush, a fantastic company!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really, really, really like the concept of this shampoo bar. I love the smell of it, the look of it, the ingredients, how it is supposed to make my hair feel, the fact that it comes without packaging and is from Lush…

I can’t lie though. There are an awful lot of things about this bar that I just absolutely do not like. More than anything, I find this bar incredibly annoying.

I, for all of my reasons above, am going to rate this shampoo bar a 3/5*. With all the cons I said about this product, I’m sure you’d think I’d rate it less. Honestly, I absolutely love the smell, and I think it is mainly that which has made me rate this product a generous 3 star rating. I’m sorry if you love this shampoo bar – it is generally quite a popular one. It just really does not agree with me!

That’s it for me for today! Today I washed my hair with the ‘Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar’, so that is the shampoo from Lush that I will be reviewing next. Don’t expect any shampoo reviews for around 3 months though – they do last an incredibly long time!

I am also in the process of using a lip balm from Lush, a spot treatment, a lotion, a shower jelly, a couple of temple balms, a hair styling cream, a massage bar and a fun bar! From experience, I think that the lotion, shower jelly and the massage bar might be the next ones that I will use up and review. I think out of these, the shower jelly and lotion will be soonest – probably the lotion will be soonest! The lotion is a really exciting one, so look forward to that – although, even the lotion I expect is going to take me some time to get through…

Basically, I probably won’t have any more Lush reviews for a while, unless I buy some new Lush products that I can use up a bit faster, but I’m trying to refrain from buying more until I use more of my stash up!

Anyway, sorry for the long conclusion… I will still write a few blog posts that aren’t Lush related – about my travels, a competition that I won, about Uni, and life in general!

Lush Beautiful Shower Gel Review

Hey guys!

Today is my first review for one of Lush’s shower gels! I have a lot more soaps from Lush than shower gels, which is why I review soaps more often. I have actually almost completely stopped purchasing products from Lush so that I can get through my current stash a little!

As always, I only review a Lush product once I have used it up completely, and always state the product’s size that I used where there are varying size options. I only review products after using the product up completely because I feel that this way, I have a fully informed opinion of the product.

I hope you enjoy!


Beautiful Shower Gel (100g)

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This shower gel lasts forever! Some people might actually consider this to be a bad thing, as they might become bored of using the same product for so long. I received my little 100g bottle of this shower gel in a gift box for Christmas, and only just managed to use it up about a week ago. I have been using other soaps etc since Christmas other than this shower gel, but I would still guess that it has lasted me around 2 months. That’s an incredibly long time considering I shower daily and considering that this is just a 100g bottle! If a 100g bottle of this gel lasts ~2 months, a 250g bottle would last ~5 months, a 500g bottle would last ~10 months and a massive 1kg bottle would last ~20 months!

This shower gel has an interesting smell to it. It has almost a slightly dish washing liquid smell to it… Perhaps not the smell of something that everyone would want to be washing themselves with!

It can become difficult to get the product out of the bottle after a while, because of the gel being so thick. I had to really squeeze my bottle very hard to get product out at one point, and after that point, I had to resort to adding some water to the gel to thin it out a little bit. This can be somewhat irritating, but isn’t a huge problem.

This shower gel does not spread evenly when using it on a loofah/sponge etc. When you squeeze some onto your loofah and spread it around, there will be a yellow coloured concentrated patch of the shower gel right where you initially placed it, which will be almost impossible to disperse around the loofah completely. This probably means that some product is wasted, as it gets stuck in the loofah until rinsed out.

I honestly do not smell the peach scent whatsoever to this shower gel, and it doesn’t really smell fruity to me or refreshing in any way at all – if you want to buy this shower gel based on it’s scent, you definitely have to smell it in store first to avoid any possible disappointment!

The bottle cap of this shower gel is extremely fragile. I dropped the bottle at one point by accident in the bathroom, and the top of the lid snapped right off, and broke into lots of little pieces! Again, not a massive problem, but still a little irritating.

This shower gel smells very heavily of Myrrh, so if you find the scent to be a little overpowering, this is not the shower gel for you!

Sometimes on the rare occasion, I would have to re-lather up my loofah, because the initial lather wasn’t enough to spread across my entire body. It can be a little difficult sometime to determine how much shower gel is too little and how much will be too much!


Pros:

This shower gel is full of gold lustre. It is dispersed throughout the shower gel incredibly evenly, and does not settle at the bottom of the bottle at all. It is absolutely beautiful and looks so magical, and makes you feel really special whilst using it!

This shower gel is a gorgeous amber colour in the bottle, and when dispensed, becomes a vibrant and deep marigold yellow colour. The colour of this product reminds me a lot of marmalade actually – an amber colour in the bottle and a much more yellow colour when spread more thinly. I think the colour of this shower gel is beautiful!

The shower gel is called ‘Beautiful’. A shower gel with that name is bound to make you feel good when you use it!

On the shower gel bottle, there is a little hidden message going down the side that reads ‘Smile!’. How cute is that?! πŸ˜€

No glitter will cling to your skin after rinsing this shower gel off, which for some people is definitely a plus!

The bottle that this shower gel is made out of is 100% recycled!

In general, this shower gel lathers up extremely well.

This shower gel leaves your skin feeling very smooth, clean and quite moisturised too.

The scent lingers on the skin for a good amount of time, which is something I definitely love.

This shower gel is handmade and is made from natural ingredients, is vegan, has not been tested on animals, is environmentally friendly and is from the awesome company Lush! What more could you ask for?!

I received this shower gel as part of a gift from my partner myself, and definitely see this product as making a beautiful gift for anyone.

The product lasting a long time could definitely be a pro to some people – this little bottle will last you around 2 months! In general, a little goes a long way – although learning this amount definitely takes practice.


Overall conclusion:

Overall, I quite like this shower gel. It is a really nice idea, and really does make you feel more beautiful and happy when you use it. I personally have preferred other scented Lush products than this, but it doesn’t smell bad. It is quite an incensey smell I guess – it isn’t sweet or fruity at all. I do still think it smells good, I just possibly think my nose is generally more drawn toward other types of scents to this.

The bottle cap breaking was also a little annoying, but not a big deal. I definitely really enjoyed receiving this shower gel as a gift. I haven’t really given any of the other shower gels a good try.

I think I’ll rate this product a 4/5*, which is what seems to be the rating that every product is getting recently but I promise this is not on purpose! I love this shower gel, but I definitely would prefer a different scent I think. Other than that, it truly is a beautiful shower gel!

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub Review.

Hiya! πŸ™‚

Today is a review of Lush’s ‘Mint Julips Lip Scrub’.

I hope you enjoy!


Mint Julips Lip Scrub:

Rating: 4/5

Cons:

This lip scrub tastes a bit too good – I found myself nibbling on it every now and then! This means that obviously the product runs out a lot quicker and that you kinda get less bang for your buck than you might at first think you will. Basically, for what the product is, I actually find these lip scrubs to be incredibly expensive – whether they are filled to the brim or not!

This scrub gets just about everywhere when you decide to use it. It will end up all around your lips, possibly your chin, your lap if you are sitting down at the time and whatever surface you are sitting on. This is a messy product!

The product does not taste the same way that it smells. It smells like some sort of minty milk chocolate to me, but tastes like mint flavoured sweets. This can be a bit disappointing!

The product smelling so good does mean that it is very tempting to try some of the product – perhaps the product shouldn’t smell quite so good!

After scrubbing your lips with this product, it is recommended that you actually lick the product off. This is somewhat… Well, it means that you’re basically mindfully eating your own dead, scrubbed off lip skin. This is a bit gross!

I always rinse my mouth area after using the lip scrub, because even if I try to lick the product off, there will still be sugar granules sprinkled around my mouth. This can be a bit time consuming and inconvenient at times.


Pros:

This scrub will leave your lips feeling incredibly smooth, plump, renewed and a nice rosey colour. My lips always looked their best just after I had used this scrub! If you like a more natural beauty sort of look, this scrub is especially good, because you can have all of these effects to your lips without having any product actually on them!

I found it very satisfying using this lip scrub. It’s so nice looking in the mirror after scrubbing your lips to find how perfect they look!

This lip scrub smells just like ‘Aero’ – a milk chocolate filled with sweet, creamy, minty “bubbles”. It smells absolutely amazing!

This product comes in a little tiny jar, so it is very easy to put in your handbag and carry around with you wherever you go.

This product is generally very easy and quite fast to use!

This is a Lush product, so it is pretty epic!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I absolutely love Lush’s lip scrubs. I prefer this lip scrub to their ‘Popcorn Lip Scrub’, because although I love the smell and taste of the popcorn flavoured lip scrub more, I find that ‘Mint Julips Lip Scrub’ lasts a little bit longer, and I also find I prefer the effects slightly more when using ‘Mint Julips Lip Scrub’.

‘Mint Julips Lip Scrub’ will leave your lips super plump, super rosey, feeling super renewed and extremely smooth. Yes, it might be quite messy and yes, it is also quite expensive for what it is, for the amount of product you get and for how long it lasts. My pot was made on 05/05/16, and I probably used it all up sometime this week. That means it lasts me around 10 or 11 weeks, so 2 1/2 – 3 months. That sounds like a decent amount of time for it to last, but considering it is really just sugar and oils, I’d expect it to last longer for how much I paid for it. I suppose you are essentially paying for someone else to make the product for you, saving you time – but that would still mean that I’d expect a little bit more than the small pot that this scrub comes in, as if I were to make the product myself, I’d definitely make far more product than what they provide.

Overall, I do really like this scrub. I do have some issues with it, but they are nothing massive. I rate this product a 4/5* – I really want to rate it higher, but how messy it is does put me off giving it a 5* rating. Either way, this is a fantastic product, and I look forward to trying more lip scrubs from Lush in the future!

I hope you enjoyed this review everyone!

Lush Celebrate Hand and Body Lotion Review.

Hey guys!

This is the last Lush review for today (unless I manage to use up another product by the end of the day – I am getting quite close to using up a shower gel and a lip scrub!)

I hope you enjoy this one!


Celebrate Hand and Body LotionΒ 

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

The smell of this product has a slightly medicinal scent to it – it isn’t anything very heavy, but I do notice it, and it is slightly off-putting.

This is a Christmas season exclusive product, meaning that you can only purchase it in stores throughout November and December really and even then, it isn’t guaranteed to come back in stores the following Christmas season. This means that if it turns out that you really enjoy this product, you might not even be able to purchase it again, so that is definitely a con and something to really think about before purchasing this lotion!

I find this lotion quite difficult to spread around the skin, and I find that I do need to use quite a bit to coat the skin properly. This means that this lotion can get used up very, very quickly once you begin using it for larger areas of skin, such as the feet, legs, arms and hands.

This being a Christmas time product can make it feel unusual to be using it during the Summer months.

This lotion takes a very, very long time to sink into the skin, so your skin will feel slightly greasy until it does. When used on the hands, you will more than likely need to wipe any excess reside off onto another part of your body that does not have any of the lotion on it, so that your hands don’t feel super tacky.

The smell of this lotion actually reminds me of the taste/smell of ‘Tango’ in the flavour ‘Orange’. I do like this smell, but it can make you feel as though the lotion smells a little cheap I guess.

This is a very confusing product – it smells like a Summertime product to me and makes your skin look gorgeous when exposed to the sun, but it is in fact a Winter product, and is incredibly moisturising which is more ideal for the Wintertime too.


Pros:

The feel of this lotion is lovely. It has Β very, very thick and creamy texture, and is very dense. It really does feel lovely.

I think for Christmas time, this lotion definitely helps to get you in the mood to celebrate the Christmas season.

As stated before, I do really love the smell of this lotion – even if it is because it smells like orange flavoured Tango to me… Imagine drinking a fresh glass of icy orange Tango through a straw… Yeah, it reminds me exactly of that taste/smell haha! Really refreshingly fresh, zesty and citrusy. I think this scent would be perfect to use on summer holidays to Italy or similar locations.

This lotion is incredibly moisturising, which might not be ideal for the Summer, but it does make help make your skin feel very nice, healthy, plump, moisturised and silky smooth. It also makes your skin glow and look absolutely gorgeous in the sun.

I think this product will last you a long while because although once you are using it, it gets used up very quickly, I do feel like overall it is probably more of a Summertime product. This means that you probably wouldn’t use it all that much in the Winter, so it will probably last you all throughout winter, Spring and some of Summer – like it did for me! I personally was given my pot of this lotion for Christmas and it has lasted me all the way until just yesterday – so around 6 months and 3 weeks!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I did really enjoy this moisturiser, and will definitely miss using it this Summer. It was very heavily moisturising, was quite thick, difficult to move around the skin and took a long time to sink in – all things that I feel could definitely be improved. I also really do feel like this is more of a Summer product than a Winter product, which makes this being a Christmas exclusive product a pain. I also feel like there probably isn’t quite enough product in the pot, but this is only really an issue because of me preferring to use it in the Summer.

Overall, I really like this lotion, but it really confuses me that they have made this product one to only be released during the winter, and have made the texture of the product one more suitable for the winter too. The scent is super Summery to me, and makes the skin look far too good for this to be a lotion that should be used in the Winter, when all your skin is hidden beneath layers and layers of clothing…

So, my overall rating of this product is 4/5*, the same rating I have given the previous two products I have reviewed today. I love this lotion so much, but it is too confusing for me to give it 5 stars haha!

I’d say it’s definitely one that is worth picking up during the winter, and to just use it sparingly until Summer rolls around. I’m really going to miss it for the rest of the Summer! Ah well, I have many more lotions to use in place of this one πŸ˜‰

Lush Herbalism Fresh Cleanser Review

Hey again!

Here’s my review for Lush’s ‘Herbalism Fresh Cleanser’!

I hope you enjoy!


Herbalism Fresh Cleanser (100g):

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This cleanser is green. Some people might like that, but for some, it’s not really the colour of a facial product that you want to be applying to your face. It kinda looks like some sort of plant matter… or it maybe even looks slightly mouldy because of the green colour…

The smell is very strong. It has a very herbal vinegary smell to it. To me, it isn’t a bad smell, and reminds me of the smell of a health food store, which I quite like actually. But for some people, especially initially, the smell of this product could definitely be a bit overwhelming.

The texture of water and this cleanser mixed together is slightly unusual to me. It is quite difficult to get an even texture of the mixture, and to really mix the green cleanser properly with water. Once you have, you will be left with a slightly gritty, green, watery mixture to apply to your face. The mixture in my opinion is very uneven.

When applying this cleanser to the face and rubbing it in, it really does have a very thin, watery texture, with very slightly gritty seedy pieces mixed in. The coating of cleanser on the skin feels so thin, that it can feel as though you aren’t cleansing your face properly. The slightly gritty seed-like pieces are also not all that exfoliating, and I find they don’t really do much at all. This is a cleanser that definitely does not feel like it will be very effective while applying it.

Once this cleanser has been washed off, it leaves a slight residue all over the skin, making your skin have a slight green tinge to it. I thought I was imagining the change in skin tone at first, because it is a very slight difference, so I tried using a cotton pad with some micellar cleansing water to my face to see if any residue would come off onto the pad. The pad definitely had green on it, and I always rinse my face very thoroughly after cleansing!

This cleanser lasts forever. I’m not certain when I bought my pot, but it was made on 08/01/16 with an expiry date of 08/04/16, but I only managed to completely use my pot up this week at some point. This makes the product a little tedious and stressful to use – tedious because it can be fun to change up your skincare routine, so when a cleanser takes 6 months to get used up… well, yeah, it can become a little boring! The stressful part is because you become worried that you won’t use it quicker than it will begin to develop mould or something… For the record though, it’s appearance, smell and effects didn’t change whatsoever for the duration that I used it, I do believe that the use by dates on these products are more like guidelines than anything else.

This product can be a little embarrassing to own – although maybe that’s just me. It looks a little bit like marijuana, smells a little like marijuana, and is called “Herbalism.” I always feel like anyone who sees my cleanser might be a little suspicious, especially when I take it abroad and have to go through security etc. I haven’t had any problems with it, so maybe I’m just paranoid.. haha!

This cleanser leaves some residue in your hair line which you will need to pick out, which can be quite irritating.

If someone walks into the bathroom while you have this cleanser on your face, that could also be quite embarrassing – it really is bright green and has little seeds in it, quite an unusual looking facial product indeed!

I didn’t really see a difference in my acne whilst using this cleanser whatsoever, and if there was a difference, it was really quite slight.


Pros:

This cleanser is very “green”, as in the ingredients are all very clean and natural. This is always a good thing in my book, as I love all things environmentally friendly and natural and healthy and everything like that.

This cleanser is completely non – comedogenic. It does contain a couple of oils, but both of those oils will not contribute to the clogging of your pores, so you don’t have to worry about this cleanser making any acne any worst at the very least, which is great!

The colour is weird, yes, but I kinda, sorta like it. I mean, it’s unique. Unique is fun, unique is interesting. I say you should buy this cleanser at least once in your life, just to experience using a cleanser as peculiar looking as this on your face.

As I said before about the smell of this cleanser – I personally actually do like it. It smells like a health food store – to me it smells almost identical. I really like that smell!

This product does leave your face feeling quite clean, fresh, and even slightly plump and moisturised.

The green tinge that this cleanser leaves on your skin could be seen as a bonus. Some people like to use green coloured products on their face to combat redness, so if you are one of those people, definitely give this cleanser a shot.

This is a Lush product, clearly, meaning it is animal friendly as in not tested on animals and completely cruelty free, and is also a vegan product. Being a vegan and someone who appreciates life of all varieties, just this fact alone makes this cleanser a pretty great product in my book.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I do quite like this cleanser. I do not adore it, but I do definitely like it. I’d say it’s definitely worth a try, but don’t expect miracles. It is a very interesting product and one that I am very glad I gave a go.

Overall, I rate this cleanser a 4/5* – it definitely wasn’t as effective of a cleanser to me as Aqua Marina was, but it is still a really nice product to try – perhaps a great gift for any hipster/indie/hippie/alternative types of friends that you might have…

Lush Dirty Massage Bar Review

Hey guys!

Welcome again to another Lush review.

Just a little warning before I get started – I have been meaning to update my blog with a few reviews for a while now, so you’re going to get 3 reviews today πŸ™‚ I’m also going to begin working on some holiday type blog posts soon for Rome, Paris and Glasgow, so look forward to them!

Other than those blog posts, I’m going to be super busy this Summer, so I might not post too much after this week is done. I’m getting a job, moving out, have holidays abroad coming up, have some studying to get done before I get back to Uni in September, have a lot of goals to achieve and well… yeah… basically I’m going to be pretty busy over the next few months…

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this review! πŸ™‚


Dirty Massage Bar Review:

Rating: 4/5

Cons:

This massage bar is pretty messy. It has chocolate on the top of it, which melts very, very easily. You will soon find chocolate smeared all over the massage bar, so when you use it, you then end up with chocolate smeared and rubbed into your skin. This can leave you with feeling slightly unclean – but it’s not a big deal really.

This massage bar melts incredibly easily. If you leave it on your bedside table, or anywhere else where you may also usually place a cup of tea or any hot beverage, problems can occur. Sometimes I would find my massage bar had melted somewhat onto my bedside table, due to me having a hot drink on the side, forgetting about the fact my massage bar was close by.

I’m not too keen on the overall colour of the massage bar in all honesty. It’s a peachy, nude sort of colour – to me it doesn’t look all that pretty as the colour of a massage bar!

This massage bar is super oily – which I guess sounds pretty obvious. At the same time though, it somehow doesn’t feel very moisturing, which sounds strange, but it’s true. It sort of leaves a coating on your skin which does eventually sink in, but it takes so long to do so, that it really just leaves your skin feeling kinda oily.

This massage bar can go down super quickly. My partner would use a chunk of it on my back, and to my surprise, it would all be gone by the end of the massage. It goes down REALLY quickly.

This massage bar will begin to break into pieces the more you use it – not a massive problem as it breaks into large pieces, not lots of small ones.

The chocolate piece on this massage bar looks a bit odd. I guess it is because it is incorporated into a beauty product, but it looks very uneven in colour and looks almost speckled. Again, not a big problem.


Pros:

This massage bar smells so good. It smells like a slightly earthy, soapy spearmint. It smells very clean, lovely and relaxing.

This massage bar feels lovely on the skin. The chocolate part feels gritty whilst the main massage bar part feels incredibly smooth. Having a couple of different sensations used in a massage makes it more interesting and fun!

The chocolate part, although messy, is quite a luxurious idea. I think this massage bar is definitely more of a luxury item, but a luxury item everyone should have in their storage.

This massage bar is very soft and is very porous – meaning that it melts very evening and smoothly. This means that the sensation while the massage bar is gliding over your skin is a very smooth and relaxing one – with only slight resistance or friction at the very beginning of the massage, before the bar has begun melting properly.

The residue that this massage bar leaves behind provides a very good medium to give massages with – your hands will glide smoothly across any skin without any effort. This gives a very relaxing massage to the recipient.

This massage bar will dry and become completely solid at room temperature – at least at my room temperature, meaning it’s ability to leave any residue on anything is short lived once it has been put down.

If you have a partner, then just having this massage bar lying around will encourage them to give you more massages – especially if you tell them that you are trying to use it up so that you can review it πŸ˜‰

The speckled effect of the actual main part of the massage bar looks very nice – it reminds me of when you buy a good brand of vanilla ice cream and can see little black dots of vanilla pot distributed throughout. It has a very nice and organic look to it.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I love this massage bar. I’ve received tons of lovely back and shoulder massages with this bar in the past, so I think getting this massage bar was totally worth it. I’m not keen on using it as a lotion of some sort at all – it is far too messy and oily for that. It is perfect for an evening massage though!

I absolutely loved having this massage bar, despite it being somewhat messy, so I’m going to rate it a 4/5*. If it was a tad less messy I would have given the bar a higher rating – I’m a bit obsessed with cleanliness and I must admit that sometimes this bar being used on me made me feel a bit ‘dirty’, which I guess is the point! Definitely a luxury item best saved for special occasions I think!
