Advantages: Soothes aches and pain, relaxes body, scent is really relaxing, lovely warming feature, easy to use.
I have quite bad arthritis in my joints, which can become quite painful sometimes, and yesterday I had quite bad joints and last night I could barely sleep, so I thought I'd go into Superdrug and pick up some painkillers, but I when I went into Lush, I was recommended to try the Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage bar. I'd never tried the massage bar before, I honestly didn't know they would benefit me, but apparently the massage bar targets pain and soothes aches, in muscles and the body. I though how could I go wrong and brought one bar.
The product is oval shaped and is relatively flat, which makes it easy to hold and to use. The size is roughly the size of my hand, or approximately 70g. The colour of the product is cream colour, which has a lot of little beads in, which are red colour, they look similar to pomegranate seeds! The red beads are embedded just into the surface of the product. The product looks weird and unique, but does looked quite appealing for new customers. The product is suitable for Vegans and no ingredients are tested on animals. Ingredients are on the sticker on the bag or online at (www.lush.co.uk).
To use the Wiccy Magic Muscles is quite simple, all you really have to do is use the massage bar, until it gets heated, which then causes the soothing powers. I personally use the massage bar after I've come out the shower and I'm dry, I just rub it on my joints and my hands, which causes the massage bar to become warm quite quickly, maybe only 3-5minutes and the bar becomes quite warm, a nice warm. The Wiccy Magic Muscle bar can be used anywhere that you get pain, back, legs, hands and shoulders are the common uses of the massage bar, but I wouldn't recommend you use it on your face or on broken skin, as it might sting. Using the bar when my joints are particularly bad is also quite beneficial and nice, so perfect for anyone to use after a hard day. Using the bar was strange to start with, the bar quickly heated up, but while applying, the massage bar did slowly melt over my joints, which wasn't a problem as the creamy butter was so nice on my skin, almost like a moisturiser for my skin. The massage bar is quite messy, but as I only used a little bit it didn't become to bad, but be aware that it can get quite messy!
The scent of the is very typically Lush, it's very strong and natural, which I love, but others that don't like strong smells, this might not be the best for you. The scent is mainly cinnamon, which adds abit of spice to the massage bar, which is caused by the cinnamon oil in the bar. Also apparently the product has hints of cloves, which is a bit weird, but it's not to overpowering, all you can really smell is the cinnamon. I also noticed a hint of cocoa butter, which gives it a creamier texture but also adds benefits to the moisturising properties of the massage bar. The scent is really gorgeous, and lingers quite abit on your skin, which is always an advantage!
The effects of using the Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar are really positive, the warming power of the massage bar is weird to start with, as it warms up so quickly, but I have to say the warm temperature was perfect, it felt really soothing to my joints. But also it really relaxes muscles, which is perfect for anyone who uses the product, as it really helps relax and rest muscles, which stops and reduces pain in them. The lasting power of the massage bar was really positive, they lasted at least the day, which was perfect for me, as it enabled me to carry on with my life as usual despite problems, and for really bad days it really is positive, as decreased the pain in my joints and regular use during bad days, makes it easier to get through the day. For other people the effects of the massage bar are still positive, it can help with aching and sore muscles, and even helps with back pains, it really helps soothe and relax your body, and the scent relaxes your mind!
The Lush Wiccy Magic Muscle Massage bar is available at Lush stores and Lush online (www.lush.co.uk) and costs £5.95 for one bar (70g), and as the bar lasts ages, it really is good value for money.
Summary: A massage in a bar!
