you've been mangoed

As soon as I read the description of You've Been Mangoed on the Lush website, and had a little giggle, I knew I wanted to try it! Lush say that "This one was invented at a time when our telly was full of adverts of men painted orange and doing naughty things. We wanted a similar wake up call, but delivered in a kinder way." Now I don't know about you, but I'd rather be mangoed than tangoed!

The smell of this bath melt is absolutely divine. It's full of cocoa, avocado and mango butters, aswell as lemon and lime oils and has a lovely fresh and zesty tropical smell. You can tell just by feeling the product and its slippery texture that it's going to be really moisturising for your skin.

Despite having a strong fruity smell whilst sitting in the wrapper, this bath melt didn't deliver when it had melted in my bath. The bath water was like silk, but the scent was barely noticeable which was disappointing. I did step out of the bath with baby soft skin, and the water did feel luxurious but a big part of the Lush experience for me is the smell and this didn't live up to my expectations.

I think this product would be great for those people who don't like strong scents but still want to try a Lush product as it's not too overwhelming but does wonders for your skin.

  5. I love this bath melt- it's actually one of my faves, and it leaves my skin so soft. The strength of the scent seems to vary each time!

  10. Great review! I remember being in the LUSH are considering this product, but I don't think I ended up purchasing it. I remember it definitely being slippery, and it did smell very fresh. I think I would like it though, since the scent isn't too strong.

  11. This sounds lovely but I'm the same as you, part of the Lush experience is coming out smelling like one of their shops! Sounds like it would be good for when you need a bit of moisturisation but I do like to smell yummy so might give this one a miss. X
