It wasn't until I was searching for my review of this product that I realised with horror that I had yet to write one at all. For a product that I buy almost monthly, I was both surprised and confused that I hadn't previously noticed its absence on my blog, and I set about rectifying this problem as soon as I could.
Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt is one of my staple Lush products - one of the few bath items that I still purchase from the regular range. With all of the wonderful array of bath bombs and bubble bars that make an appearance in the Lush Kitchen, I have enough items to last me a good eighteen months. Because of this, I tend not to buy any of regular stuff in favour of using up what I already have. However, this is one product that I make an exception for, and with good reason.
One of five bath melts, this one is aimed at those with a bit of a sweet tooth - a sweet, musky candy floss scented product that shares its scent with the popular Snow Fairy Shower Gel and Godmother Soap. While it doesn't mimic the scent of either of these products exactly, its close enough to appeal to fans of both while distinctive enough to attract a few new fans along for the ride.
Containing both marshmallow powder and synthetic musk, Mmmelting Marshmallow Melt has a wonderful soft and rather playful aroma - like raspberry bubblegum intertwined with a touch of vanilla and a little hint of fruit. While I love Snow Fairy, I find this bath melt to be far more wholesome and creamier than the shower gel.
Both the cocoa butter and the almond oil not only make this really moisturising in the bath, but offer a really creamy experience in the tub. You only have to drop it into the water to watch it get to work immediately - spewing out thick waves of pastel-pink foam that coats the surface of the tub and creates what looks like a fluffy, cloud-like bath to submerge yourself in.
While it's not as oily as the likes of You've Been Mangoed and Dreamtime, this bath melt instead makes the water feel really velvety-soft and you can definitely feel the difference that it makes to your skin afterwards. Using this regularly has really helped to heal my skin and leave it feeling beautifully soft for days on end.
It's effective enough that you only need to use half (or maybe even a third) of this at a time so it's good value for money. Unlike all of the other bath melts, this one gives your water a slight pinkish tint which means it can be used by itself as well as alongside a bath bomb or bubble bar of your choice.
While it's not the most exciting bath product from Lush, it does its job at revitalising and softening your skin - leaving a lovely gentle sweet smell on your body for a long time after bathing. Furthermore, if you place this under the running tap, the bath melt also produces a small amount of bubbles which makes the whole experience a little more enjoyable.
Although I normally proclaim that this scent family can be a little too bland for my tastebuds nowadays, this bath melt is still to draw me in and offer me a bathing experience that I look forward to. For this reason, it will always be my go-to, candy-inspired cosmetic for when I'm looking for something sweet to perk me up in an evening.
