Blogmas Day 9: Review: Lush’s Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt!

The Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt from Lush was probably the thing I was most excited to try when I saw Lush’s Christmas collection this year that I hauled here. It just looked really different from the rest with the glitter and it smells really citrusy and uplifting which might not be ‘traditional christmas’ but I love it. And here is why…


Isn’t it a beauty?! I’m sat typing this with one of them next to me and it smells like Sherbet Lemons which is making me have all kinds of Harry Potter feelings.

The inside of Lush

I cut mine in half because this is a really big bath melt and at £3.30 each I’d like get a bit more for my money, and I found a little blue part inside that turned my bath water a really relaxing light blue. You could probably even get away with cutting it into 3rds or 4ths because it’s a very very powerful bath melt packed with Cocoa butter and Shea butter. But I used half to test it out and for really dry winter skin then 1/2 is good. A whole one might even be too much.

Glitter from Lush

My only problem with this bath melt is the glitter. This was after touching it gently and after a bath? I was coated. Head to toe. In silver glitter. It took two showers before I was glitter free so I might be rinsing it off under the tap before I use it again. Or use it when I want to be glittery.


It melted really well in the bath, wasn’t too greasy and moisturised really well. I didn’t need lotion after which was great because I’m really lazy with that. But I do recommend keeping your hair up or rinsing it really well because I think this could make it a little weighed down. And rinse your bath after or you’ll end up scrubbing away for ages if it solidifies around your tub.

All in all I think this would be a great stocking stuffer or a treat for yourself to use maybe the day before New Years Eve to get a bit of shimmer going. I’m going to be stocking up because I think it’s really great. Definitely a new favourite of mine which is saying something because I don’t generally go for ‘fresh’ scents.
