Today I have a review of Lush's Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar. This retails at $10.95 Can. for 70 grams.
My bar looks a bit odd because it is about two or so years old XD. For whatever reason, I didn't decide to review it until now. So here is the photo from Lush.ca's website:
"Spicy bar for sore muscles
The bar starts melting the moment it touches skin, and after rubbing it on, it leaves a nice layer of scented oils.
I don't do much intense physical activity that I need a deep rub down for my muscles, so sadly I cannot review how good it works for that. But, I can say that this works perfectly for a lighter massage, giving good slip for hand movements, and the essential oils are very therapeutic and relaxing. The bar is very moisturizing, and I bet it would be lovely to use right after a warm bath.
I don't feel it warms the skin right away, but I find it does warm up and hold heat in for a bit after some massaging. Then to me it feels a bit cool on the skin, which I think is from the peppermint.
There are azuki beans on one side to help with massaging, but I don't really use that side so I can't say to how well they work. I have heard that they can be a bit of a pain in the butt when the bar starts melting after several uses and they start to fall out, but I'm not really worried about that.
Overall I think it is a great product, and one I can see myself buying again after I finish using it. I tend to be really stingy with my products when I use them, so they can last a very long time (like this one! XD). But I know that when I do run out, I'll want another. I read on Makeupalley someone comment on one of Lush's massage bars that they used it 2-3 times a week for two months and still had some left, so you should be able to get a decent amount of uses from one bar, provided that you don't use more than what is needed.
I keep mine in a tin, so that it doesn't rub off on anything else. It starts to melt the moment anything warm touches it, so I keep it in that tin for safekeeping. If you do have any of Lush's massage bars, be sure to keep them in a cooler environment, and out of sunlight.
Have you tried any of Lush's massage bars? If so, what are your favourites?
Take care, and have a lovely day!
