It’s probably quite obvious by now but I am a huge fan of Lush and I love taking baths (especially with some kind of bath product to make the water more fun and interesting) so I’m really enjoying reviewing the Lush Christmas collection, however unfortunately, today’s product just wasn’t as much of a hit for me. It’s the Lush Melting Snowman Bath Melt*
First up is the appearance. The Lush Melting Snowman is just so so cute. What an adorable little creation– he’s definitely fighting Pumkin for my top adorable Lush spot. That said, he has a few too many chocolate chips for my personal preference because they don’t totally melt in the bath which is a tiny bit gross afterwards. But look how cute he is!
The scent of Lush Melting Snowman is delicious and perfect for Christmas time. The main ingredients are rich moisturizing products like cocoa and shea butters along with almond oil. They’re followed by cinnamon leaf oil, patchouli oil, sweet orange oil, clove leaf oil, and lime oil. I definitely get a rich warm scent of the butters along with an undercurrent of spice, with the clove and cinnamon being the most prevalent. He smells pretty good, that’s definitely not the problem.
This little guy is just so cute and tiny. But that’s the problem, the Lush Melting Snowman is just a bit too tiny for me. He costs $5.95, which is a dollar less than the Lush Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb that I reviewed here. That said, I think that bath melts are just more expensive– The Lush Ceridwen’s Cauldron I review here costs $8.45. However, while I got two uses out of that bath melt which was 80 g, Lush Melting Snowman is only 60 g and lasted just one. In contrast, Lush Shoot for the Stars is a massive 200 g. I’m a student so I don’t have a ton of disposable income, and as much as I love Lush, I definitely am more likely to purchase products for myself that have a better value to them. That said, this one is adorable enough to make a lovely gift.
In the water, the Lush Melting Snowman does exactly what his name promises.. he melts. Dissolving into nothing and leaving the water a milky, silky, white. These bath melts really are luxurious and moisturizing, and you definitely don’t need to any lotion to your skin afterwards. Especially in the winter months, I can see the appeal of this product. But for me, I’d rather go for something a bit more exciting (where’s my coloured water?) and affordable.
