Whenever a product with peppermint in becomes available I snap it up. I wouldn’t say that peppermint was one of my most favourite scents, it however works wonders on the dreaded feeling of nausea which is a common side effect for me because of the medication I have to take.
My go to minty products are normally the Mask of Magnaminty face and body mask and the Intergalactic bath bomb. When I am however lucky and the Lush Kitchen have blessed us with one of their wonderful menus I also love the Magic and Abombinaball bath bombs.
All of the above go beautifully with the Melomint Bubble Bar. To look at, Melomint clearly resembles a watermelon slice. At first I thought great, I love watermelon! Its design and colours are however misleading… Melomint is not a fruity product at all, it’s minty through and through.
The only clearly, noticeable connection between it and a watermelon is its design. I do however feel that the Melomint bubble bar is super refreshing. Both while I am in the bath with it and when I also get out. I just feel so, so refreshed and that feeling really reminds me of how my mouth feels after eating a watermelon. Call me crazy, I don’t mind… It’s just how the bubble bar makes me feel. Clean, rebooted and as fresh as a daisy.
The Melomint bubble bar doesn’t smell strictly of peppermint either. It also has spearmint in it, this gives it a softer minty edge making it a very gentle mint. Although the peppermint is probably the strongest of its ingredients scent wise, you can also detect a tiny layer of cypress oil. This ingredient adds a slight earthy tone to its scent and is a key ingredient as it calms your senses and also tones your skin.
Nine times out of ten I normally say in my Lush reviews that a little of the product goes a long way. I am however always honest and that rule doesn’t apply to every Lush product. Some do not share well, while others do but I find them best enjoyed in full.
If you want an invigorating and energizing bath use as much of the Melomint as you can bear to part with for one bath. I find that I can really enjoy Melomint to the best of its ability over 2 baths, although using the whole thing leaves me flying in minty heaven. It not only freshens and hydrates my skin but also clears my head.
A quarter of it DOES give me enough bubbles for a fabulous bath I am just permanently tired so I find the more Melomint the better, it wakes you up just as good as a very large cup of coffee!
