Blogmas Day 18 - Beauty: Lush Percup Massage Bar*

Last week I raved about the From Dusk 'Til Dawn massage bar from Lush - I'd not tried the massage bars before and feel I've been completely converted especially with having such a citrus based bar to start with. 
Lush gifted me with this Percup, coffee based massage bar which if I'm honest I didn't have that high expectations of - I love drinking coffee and I'm a self confessed coffee snob, but when it comes to lathering it onto my body it's probably one of my least favourite scents. However because I'd fallen completely head over heels with From Dusk 'Til Dawn I had that glimmer of hope that this one was going to win me over.

Percup is highly caffeine fueled - This is the type of massage bar that really revitalise and wake you up! The coffee goodness boots circulation, added with the super nourishing shea & cocoa butters make for a very luxurious massage experience.
The texture is absolutely gorgeous, really creamy and not in the slightest bit greasy (like a few other massage bars I've tried are). My only gripe is with the shape of this massage bar - It's quite difficult to manoeuvre it over my skin because it's flat and there's nothing to grab hold of. Other than that though this massage bar has really won me over.
What I'm surprised at is how uncoffee like this massage bar actually smells - Like I said I'm a huge coffee lover and was looking forward to giving it a good whiff & seeing how it faired on the caffeine scale - It's extremely mild, but for me it actually works really well, the subtle hint of coffee works brilliantly - It lingers for ages too so it keeps me feeling super luxurious all day.
I was gifted with Percup after attending the Lush White Rose VIP Opening Party which I'm extremely grateful for. It retails in at £6.50 and I wouldn't hesitate repurchasing it - It's a fab little bit of kit, & what I absolutely adore is how subtle the coffee scent is & it's superb staying power!

For something that I wasn't all that keen on trying Lush have really turned it around with this little beauty! Have you used Percup before or any other massage bars? What's our favourite?

Thank you so much for reading. I absolutly love your support. Lots of love.

  1. Glad you like it! I haven't written a review yet, though it's been in my Drafts for ages! I'll have to use it a few more times first. The scent is really surprising, isn't it? I'm still not sure about it, but that's probably down to the fact that it was not what I expected! xxx

    1. Thank you! I'm surprised actually how much I enjoyed it :-) I'd love to read your review - Let me know when you publish it! X
