The Melting Snowman

Product: Lush The Melting Snowman Bath Melt

From: Lush

Price: £2.25

I'm a huge fan of Lush products and I have been buying their products for several years now. Over the years being one of their loyal customers I have tried heaps of their products therefore I feel that I'm in a good position to give an honest and accurate review on these items.

I first bought Lush The Melting Snowman Bath Melt back in December 2011 and I have been buying it every year around Christmas time ever since. You can only buy the Snowman Bath Melt during the Christmas period, it is normally released every year around the end of November and is available to purchase until the start of January.

Lush The Melting Snowman is of course shaped as a Snowman; a white body and head with a orange carrot shaped nose and two chocolate drops for brown eyes and a further three brown chocolate drops are placed on it's body area. Even though the drops are actual chocolate I still wouldn't advise anyone to eat these. I normally remove the nose, eyes and other buttons from the snowman before I drop this into my bath as I find that these are only on for decorative purchases and do not melt into the water.

The bath melt is priced at £2.25 and can be bought from any Lush Store or which is Lush's official site.

The Snowman Bath Melt is made of water softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter. It is fragranced with Hot Toddy, which is a favourite blend from Christmas past containing cinnamon, clove, patchouli, benzoin, lime and sweet wild orange oils.

To ensure maximum use I always separate my bath melts into several pieces. I find with the snowman melt that I can get three uses out of it; one being the head and I then break the body into two pieces. It's almost too cute to break into pieces but by doing this the cost per bath is then only 75p.

To use I always run my bath first and then I drop the bath melt into the water. It doesn't take long for the bath melt to dissolve therefore I can step into the water quite quickly.

The melt turns my bath water a nice milky white colour. Other than this you don't really notice anything more to start with but as the melt contains oils you will certainly notice a difference afterwards to the feel and appearance of your skin once you have taken your bath.

This leaves my skin feeling baby soft, super smooth and smelling gorgeous. After use I always feel as if I have had a luxurious bath which can only be a good thing.

I will continue to buy this each year, a nice little luxurious festive treat which gets me into the Christmas spirit.
