So yes, the title of this post is "Heaven in a Bath" - bold accusation, i'd say. I can justify this though, because i have found a product that really does an amazing job at making you feel super relaxed and helps you wind down after a long, stressful day.
Lo & behold the Floating Island Bath Melt from Lush!
I have been wanting to try a bath melt from Lush for the longest time & was drawn to this particular one because of all the positive reviews i had been hearing (the name also took me to another place just in itself! Floating Island....mmmmmm :)
Don't be fooled by the plain appearance ladies! This bath melt looks like a cupcake with the top cut off and smells of vanilla and sweets, but it's not overwhelming or headache-inducing at all.
This is a fairly decent sized BM, so i got three uses out of it - i do have quite a small bathtub though.
Floating Island is stuffed with almond oil & cocoa butter, which makes it super moisturizing (as bath melts are made to be) and makes the bathwater super silky & amazing. My skin felt like a dream during, after, and even the morning after the bath.
I admittedly was on the verge of falling asleep (twice) right in the tub on my first go with this melt - it's that soothing :)
Oooooo, witness the frothing ;)
There are only two bad things i'd have to say about this bath melt. One is that the fragrance isn't very strong - other Lush bath products give me a sort of aromatherapy, which makes the whole bathing experience even more relaxing & incredible, but i didn't get that with this one. Since this smells exactly like the Butterball Bath Bomb to me, i think paired with this melt, it would make for an aaaaamazing bath.
The other thing is that it made my bath really slippery, so i had to be careful standing up as i didn't want to slip (who does, right?) - this could potentially be an issue to other people as well, especially those who are older.
Oh, just a heads up - some people may be disappointed that it doesn't change the color of the bathwater as well!
The Floating Island Bath Melt is definitely a product worth trying out if you haven't already. It's one of Lush's more pricier bath products at $7.95, or 3.50 British Pounds, but i'd say it's worth it!
Happy bathing ladies!
Floating Island is available in Lush stores & also online!:
