Review: Lush Sexy Boy massage bar


I wanted to review this item as quick as possible, because well. I've been using it every single day, and it's getting thinner. Poor Sexy Boy!

Last week I went to MB and there for the first time in my life to a Lush store! I was overwhelmed by so many different scents in one place. But I got used to it pretty fast. I got to try lots of stuff in the store, but the first day I didn't buy anything. 
But since I could smell a vanilla like a scent after a couple of hours, on the spot where the SA rubbed the Sexy Boy on my hand, I decided to give it a go.

I went back to the store two days later and got myself this funny Ginger man like shaped massage bar!

 

Ingredients: 
Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao),Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera),Perfume,Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia),Cocoa Absolute (Theobroma cacao),Cananga Oil (Cananga odorata),Benzyl Salicylate,Cinnamal,Citral,Eugenol,Geraniol,
Benzyl Benzoate,Farnesol,Limonene,Linalool.

 As you can guess, the massage bar was quite chunky, but after a couple of days, it got thinner.
So here is my picture.

 

The description:
This little man melts onto your body with moisturizing cocoa and Shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil to give your skin a glow (he tends to lead to other things that leave you glowing too). He smells of warming chocolate and invigorating lime oil to put you in the mood for romance. Although he may not look sexy (he is a gingerbread man after all), give him a chance by rubbing him onto your partner and he'll bring sexy to your back.

Scent:
A melty massage bar just for Christmas, scented with revitalizing lime oil and comforting cocoa.

As weird as it seems, the smell goes from very refreshing to a quite powerful smell. After a couple of hours, it fades into a vanilla scent (or to me, it seems like it).

I love it! At first, I didn't quite like it, but after a couple of hours, I loved it! Now I am addicted to it, and I can't even bare the thought that it is only an LE!
My dear loves the smell, my grandma, sister, brother, and father dislikes it a lot! But my mom likes it, so now I know from whom I got my 'scent love' :D!

Use:
I use it for anything except for what it was made. I use it as a body butter, body moisturizer, perfume (I put it on my arms, neck) and sometimes just for my hands. It is very moisturizing, which I absolutely adore! Because of it, I have an excuse for my dear to massage it into my body. Ha! Okay, he uses it as a massage bar, but I don't! 
Because it is a massage bar it melts really quickly. And by really quickly I mean that after it starts melting it will double the melting speed in a matter of minutes. So work it quickly or enjoy the long massages.
After the application, you don't need to reapply it since it's quite oily and it needs some time to get absorbed (if you put too much of it). A small amount won't take any more than a couple of seconds.

 
 

Price: 
7.90€

I think it's quite pricey because in the US it costs 7.95$. I can only dream about it costing 5€ here.
But then again, EU is expensive.
I can't complain, I love it and it's a real treat for myself so it's worth it!

Pros:
+The smell, I am addicted!
+The shape, it's really easy to hold it because of it.
+The moisturizing effect.
+The scent lasts for hours.

Cons:
-Price.
-There is no box big enough for it, so I keep it in the yellow bag.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5
No matter the price, I love it. I love it and I think I need to stock up!
Hopefully, I won't get bored of the smell (because that happens to me all the time).

Overall:
If you like massage bars and you are totally into weird scents, or the crazy mix of scents and sometimes you like sweet scents and the other lemony scents... Then go for it.
But honestly, I think that everyone should smell it before you purchase it. I went to Lush, applied it on my palm and went out so I could smell it for real. After that I bought it. 
It is a shame that it is a limited edition, but probably the smell wouldn't be great for summer because it's quite strong and heavy. Christmas it the perfect time for this lovely Lush bar.
It is great for massages, even just for moisturizing your body.
It is a perfect gift, for yourself or your loved one.

  2. OH dear! The scent of sexy boy is a funny thing.. But I'm really glad you love it too!

    The shape is super practical, even if it almost slipped from my hands a couple of times.. whoops!

    ^^
    Hopefully I'll get a better job or another part time job, so I will be able to spend all of my $$$ in Lush stores.. (lol as if I need so much stuff).
