Review: LUSH Percup Massage Bar

PC220005PC220007
LUSH Percup Massage Bar, £6.50

With whole coffee beans, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, and vanilla absolute, this massage bar promises to awaken your senses and deeply hydrate your skin.

I was first drawn to this product because of the coffee element; I really love coffee and all things coffee scented! Well, this doesn't smell as expected. It has quite a bitter coffee scent and it took a little getting used to, but the vanilla adds that hint of sweetness.
After warming in your hands, use the bar or your hands (I used the bar itself) to smooth all over your body, rubbing in all of the nourishing oils. As it's really oily and takes hours to completely sink in, I prefer to use this of an evening and let it work its magic overnight. The scent lingers until you wash it off the next day.
The softening effects are wonderful! You are left with soft, smooth and hydrated skin for days. No dry patches in sight! The coffee beans help to boost circulation and may also help to reduce cellulite. From my experience, so far, I think this massage bar will last ages!

Ingredients:
Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Whole Coffee Bean, Organic Jojoba Oil, Perfume, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Vetivert Oil, Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute, Roasted Cocoa Extract, Coriander Oil, Caffeine Powder, Coumarin, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

I definitely want to try out some of the other massage bars - particularly Dirty and Therapy! I liked the effects of Percup, but due to the unusual scent, I wouldn't re-purchase this one.

Have you tried any massage bars from LUSH?

    1. I have to say, it's not something I would use daily, but maybe once a week, of an evening, for a really good all-over moisturise! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the nomination. :) xxx

    1. Yes, I think it's one that not everyone will love, due to the unusual scent, but the moisturising properties are brilliant. xxx

  5. I've used a couple of the massage bars before and I really liked them! They do make your skin super soft and a tiny bit goes a long way!
