Beauty Product Review – Lush Tender Is The Night Massage Bar
Tender Is The Night is another massage bar from Lush that was a Valentine’s day special, but now you can buy it all year round. The only thing that has changed about the massage bar is that last year it was shaped like heart with a very soft pink center, while this year is bigger and shaped in a oval shape with a pink flower in the middle. This is a review of Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush that was bought last year, that’s why in the photos it’s heart shaped. This is the description:
You may recognize the name and fragrance of this product from Valentine’s past, but this year it takes on a new, bigger form. The perfume is full of romantic essential oils, including vanilla absolute, jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil. This sensual shea and murumuru butter bar is made with an aeration technique that allows the butters to melt easily onto skin for a smooth, tender massage.
So this is the review of Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush:
Product / Quality:
The first thing that you notice about Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush is the shape and how the pink in the massage bar gives it a pretty pop of color. The bigger part of the massage bar is beige, last year it was smaller, probably half the size of this year’s product and it was shaped in a small heart shape while this year it is shaped like an oval disk. Last year’s Tender Is The Night massage bar had a soft, pink core in the middle of the heart while this year it has a small pink flower in the center which looks very cute. All in all, the newer version actually looks more clean, neat and prettier when you compare it to the last year’s heart shape which you can tell from the photos, it looks a bit messy.
Now about the quality, there is nothing wrong with the quality of the massage bar, it still leaves the skin very soft and moisturized but the only thing that was different about Tender Is The Night massage bar and the other massage bars from Lush is how the product melts. It melts really fast, faster than any other massage bar from Lush, which is a bit strange at first but it’s easy to get used to. And because it’s so soft, it’s better if you store it in a cold place because if you leave it somewhere warm, it will definitely melt. Hopefully the newer version has also an improved consistency because the old version melts a little too fast.
When you first see this massage bar you might think that it smells sweet and sugary because of the beige color and the baby pink center, but that’s not the case. The scent of Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush is floral with a hint of sweet, but mainly floral and to be more precise, it smells like jasmine. And because Lush uses only natural essential oils, the smell at first might be a bit overpowering for some, and for those who like floral scents especially jasmine, will love the smell.
Once applied the floral scent lingers on the skin for couple of hours, and it fades in a more subtle and sweet scent. So even if the scent is a bit overpowering for you, you might like it after it has stayed on your skin for couple of hours. If you prefer fruity, sweet or citrusy scents, you might not like the Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush, but there are many other massage bars and you’ll surely find the right for you.
The price of Tender Is The Night massage bar from Lush might sound a bit high but actually for a massage bar from Lush and the size of the product that are you getting it’s quite alright. The price is $11.95 for 2.1 oz. (in US) or £6.50 for 60 g (in UK) but it is one of the bigger massage bars from Lush so for the price, you’re getting more product. If you want the massage bar to last you for couple of weeks or months, keep in in a dry and cold place because this massage bar melts really easily and if you keep it somewhere warm it might melt. But we’re talking about the older version of the product which was really soft and fragile, so hopefully the newer version is a bit sturdier than the old one.

If you want to get the massage bar as a part of a gift box, it’s best to check the gift boxes for Valentine’s day because that’s when Tender Is The Night massage bar is usually included in gift boxes, like last year’s Sexy Fun Times gift box (£9.95 UK only).
