Tender is the Night was my very first Lush massage bar. When I first started to get into Lush I remember seeing it on Instagram all of the time. It was a popular, stand out product. To look at I don’t think the other Lush massage bars are ugly, Tender is the Night was just the one that first caught my attention.
I was actually visiting my friends and family in London when I got around to finally picking one up. Lush Oxford Street didn’t even exist back then… I don’t know what I even did when I visited London before it opened?!
The Stratford shop space in the Westfield centre is where I picked up my first Lush massage bar. This particular store is all on one level so before Lush Oxford Street was a thing, it was my favourite store as I always got to have a good look at everything.
Being in the wheelchair does limit me a lot so whenever I am in London I always try to visit the Oxford Street store as well as Stratford’s as they are fully accessible – legs or wheels.
Tender is the Night is the standard shape Lush massage bar. I say standard as most of them are the oval shape like in the photo above. Not too big and not too small, it fits nicely in the palm of your hand. There are however a few massage bars that are slightly different in shape such as the Soft Coeur, Hottie and of course the Strawberry Feels Forever.
Regardless of shape, all of the Lush massage bars are ridiculously moreish. I was hooked within seconds of using Tender is the Night. Originally released as a Valentine’s day product, Tender is the Night has a very romantic scent, the ylang ylang, vanilla and jasmine absolute in its ingredients reflects love perfectly.
The fact that it is now an all year round staple store product also says a lot. It’s more than a best seller!
Lush massage bars aren’t just for massages either. They can also be used by yourself as an all over body-moisturiser.
I find Tender is the Night very hydrating, the scent also stays with you for hours after using it. My skin remains soft and in a great condition for the best part of a week after using it too.
I have been asked a few times about how long a massage bar lasts when in use. Some say you can get at least 6 generous, all over body massages out of one.
Using it as a moisturiser however it seems to last forever! I think all of the Lush massage bars are excellent value for money.
