This isn’t my first bath melt from Lush & it won’t be my last. Although when I first bought this one many moons ago it was a little rectangle with the word Mango raised in letter on the front. It was simple with a pale orange colour that didn’t look much but did everything I wanted. Now Lush have recreated the You’ve been Mangoed bath melt but does it stand up to how I remember it?
You’ve Been Mangoed
I don’t quite remember if it came in a wrapper before but I’m glad it did this time. The new shape lends it’s self to be wrapped up neatly while also making it look a little more substantial. It’s something I’d gladly give as a present for those in need of relaxation but sometime size does matter. You don’t quite get how good it is until you take a bath with this in.
What’s Inside You’ve Been Mangoed
It’s new form I’m assuming represents the Avocado Butter that is found in the flesh of the fruit & is great at rehydrating skin. Not to forget the Organic Shea Butter & Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter which both help to moisturize & improve the condition of your skin too. Of course I can’t leave out the obvious scent from the Mango Butter which is absolutely divine. Not just a scent this butter can help to repair damaged skin, it contains many vitamins, minerals & antioxidants. Other noticeable fragrances in this are lemon grass, lime oil & almond oil.
This can be a bath melt for everyone but it’s not glitzy like it’s bath bomb friends. Children won’t get the same thrill but if like me when I was young my dry sensitive skin did. This is for those who’ve had a long work day & need to relax. This is therapy for the mind & soul without the bill at the end of it. It can’t fix everything but it can give you peace & quite with super soft skin afterwards. If it was any bigger than this size it would be too strong, instead the scent lingers in a calming way. As you can see below it doesn’t do much in the way of theatrics. I couldn’t quite capture the green tinge of colour it gave the bath water that did look rather pretty.
My only real problem with You’ve been Mangoed is because its oily I can’t wash my hair in the bath. It’s only a little thing but that’s it. If you have problems with very dry skin (I have psoriasis) you will like this. The only time my skin looks this good is after a Badedas bath or I’ve used something prescription based that wasn’t nice to use. If you’ve ever used Oilatum bath oil & hated the thick layer it leaves then this might be a good alternative. You get the protective barrier that locks in the hydration but it feels much nicer.
