Lush Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar
Advantages: Softens the skin and has a gorgeous fragrance
Having a few minutes to myself is a rarity let alone a full day so it is important to take full advantage! On these rare days with no child and no other half I do tend to indulge myself slightly whether a nice bottle of wine or a nice relaxing soak where I can take full advantage of my Lush collection! Lush is a company I have been buying from for a number of years and one product I use (but not often enough!) is their massage bars, they are only used when I can do them justice!
Massage Bars from Lush are a wonderful invention, solid blocks of a body cream/lotion which can either be used between you and your partner or just by yourself as part of your moisturising routine. My indulgence days always include a massage bar as I find it a novel yet relaxing way of applying a moisturising lotion. My current massage bar is the Strawberry Feels Forever bar which has been discontinued unfortunately.
== The Bar ==
Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar was bought out by Lush over 4 years ago initially as a limited edition product but managed to hang on until it was finally sent packing although I suspect it will return as a retro item in the not too distant future.
The massage bar itself is shaped like a big pale pink strawberry which looks quite cute especially compared to other massage bars Lush have currently. It has been made out of cocoa and shea butters which are of course known for their high moisturising properties together with coconut oil. For the scent fresh strawberries and bergamot have been added. The fragrance was made to resemble strawberries and cream.
== In Use ==
Now massage bars are meant to be used in pairs but I use it purely by myself as I do find it a bit more indulgent and I don't like sharing my Lush! The massage bars are simply designed to be a more relaxing way of applying a body lotion to your skin as well as being full of nourishing ingredients designed to moisturise and look after your skin.
Now because of being made from cocoa and shea butters the Strawberry bar does melt quite quickly as soon as it makes contact with the skin and warmth. I love the smell of this massage bar it is sweet but not sickly sweet which is nice and it does have a more 'real' fragrance rather than a synthetic sweet aroma which some products can have but then I guess that's because they use fresh strawberries.
I find that the massage bar is quite easy to hold despite its size, it isn't the biggest massage bar that Lush does but I don't find it hard to hold and rub it along my skin. I simply hold the massage bar and rub it along my skin several times and then just quickly rub it in properly so that it is easily absorbed. I find that my massage bar heats up nicely but it doesn't soften up too much where it slips out of your hand.
I really do like the result it gives as apart from making my skin feel soft and moisturised it doesn't leave a horrible residue behind which is nice as it is fully absorbed. It doesn't take long to be absorbed so you are not waiting around forever! Now, I do find that if you are rushed for time that a massage bar can be quite inconvenient but when you have plenty of time on your hands then they are incredibly relaxing and with the Strawberry bar you get the relaxing feeling teamed with a gorgeously creamy strawberry type fragrance. Simply beautiful!
== Overall ==
I have used my massage bar several times now and it still has plenty of uses left in it which is great. You do have to be careful where you store it though as anywhere warm and it can melt! I find that my skin is left lovely and moisturised for hours after using this massage bar. I really can't find any fault with this massage bar unless you class it being discontinued a fault! If you can get hold of one these strawberrylicious bars then do so as you won't be disappointed!
