Lush Tender Is the Night Massage Bar Review, Pictures
Tender is the Night contains scents of vanilla, jasmine, and ylang ylang. When I read that, I figured it would have a similar scent to Twilight (my all-time favorite Lush scent). Twilight contains lavender, tonka absolute (similar to vanilla), and ylang ylang oil. So I figured these two would smell similar. They both smell good, but "Tender" isn't quite the same, it's like a cousin of Twilight. "Tender" has a sweeter scent.
I have never used a massage bar before, and it's not like I need any more lotions... I have too many as it is, but the fragrance of this one drew me in.
I find it easy to apply. You don't necessarily want to coat your entire body with this bar though, I just smooth it on about half the surface area I want to cover, then rub it in. If I apply it to every inch I want to be moisturized, it ends up being too oily and doesn't absorb well. Then I rub the excess into my hands, which soaks in really well and leaves my hands smelling awesome and feeling awesome too.
When you don't apply too much, it absorbs completely into the skin in about half an hour. If you want a lotion you can apply then immediately start getting dressed and ready for your day, this may not be for you. I like wearing it now in the summertime just on days when my legs are exposed, since I've only been using it on my legs so far anyway.
I find that the scent isn't too overpowering or heavy, which is great for me because many scents can give me a headaches... not cool. It fades after a few hours, but it wasn't super strong to begin with.
Overall, I think this thing is going to last me forever, I enjoy the scent. Did I really need it? No, but I'm glad I picked it up.
Thanks for reading!
