Lush Floating Island Bath Melt Review 

After seeing so many Lush product reviews amongst the blogging community, it was only a matter of time before I had to try it for myself! I’m by no means a beauty blogger & have no intention of regularly reviewing products etc but I couldn’t not share this.

I have to admit, I find the amount of choice in the Lush store slightly overwhelming & will probably stick to online shopping in future but this is all down to my anxiety so that’s OK.

I knew I wanted to try a butterball bath bomb so I grabbed 2 of those after reading Jordanne’s review on Life of A Glasgow Girl. 

Unfortunately, as I browsed the rest of the bath bombs I realised I wouldn’t be able to buy any as they’re all full of glitter – something I’m allergic to! I have a terrible reaction to glitter on my skin so I was a bit disappointed.

Just as I was about to take my butterballs & leave, I spotted these tiny glitter free Floating Island Bath Melts – they smelled creamy and looked cute so I grabbed one and left. The bath melts have got Shea butter, cocoa butter, extra virgin coconut oil, almond oil, sandalwood oil, lemon oil & fair trade vanilla pods.

Obviously, as soon as I got home I set a bath running and added the bath melt. I could instantly see the oil released into the water and it has a lovely subtle smell of cocoa butter & vanilla. I also noticed a piece of vanilla pod or two floating in the water (and no glitter in sight)!
I chilled in the bath and could feel the oil coating my skin which I love as I know my skin is being treated to the natural moisturising it deserves. When I dried off, I didn’t feel as moisturised as I expected so wasn’t sure if it had done as much as I hoped…. (a lot of reviewers don’t like this oily coat but it’s perfectly normal and good for your skin!)

…Until this morning! My skin is as soft as a baby’s ass I promise you! From head to toe my skin feels brand new and I can’t stop stroking myself (get your minds out the gutter lol). I recommend this bath melt to anyone who wants some skin r&r or who’s skin needs some love after too much sun or just wants to feel how soft their skin can be after just one bath – I will definitely be bulk buying these bad boys from now on!

    Great review! Are you allergic to plastic glitter or specifically lush glitter? If it’s plastic glitter lush uses one made of seaweed but I know a few people who get reactions from that.
    I’ve not tried the bath oils, I’ve had Ceridwen’s Cauldron bath melt & would definitely recommend but I usually use it with my favourite bubble bar too (a French kiss) – I don’t believe either use glitter 🙂

      Hmm I have no idea? I know glitter they put on clothes and carnival costumes are a problem for me? Guessing that’s probably plastic glitter? That small stuff that gets everywhere and you find weeks later in the carpet?

      I don’t even know what a bubble bar is – that’s how new I am to Lush LOL! Going to browse their website and see what I come across.

        Yeah most glitter is plastic 🙂 basically you run bubble bars under the tap (or put them in a sieve under the tap, I find that works better) and they produce bubbles & colour like bubble bath 🙂 you can cut them up and get way more uses out of them than most bath bombs so I find that they’re better value for money 🙂

          Oh OK. Those bars sound interesting so I might try them!

            They’re definitely worth a try! I think there are more without glitter than the bombs too 🙂
