Oceans

I’d found a home in a distant land. A home that I called mine for a blissful few hours on a sunny day.
Away from everything but not, sheltered away, I found a place which allowed me to become whole.

The waves crashed in on my legs. Enveloping them as my heart poured out into the ocean.

My insides danced with glee as I playfully skipped through the cool water.

My footprints embedded in the sodden sand, as sudden as the waves lapped the shore once more, the past imprints that have shaped me are taken back into the waters.

And in that moment, as I watch the shapes dissolve into the great vastness, I feel the emptiness inside me fill with warmth.
I exude happiness and I am engulfed by the power that resides in the ever changing faces of waves. 

I am energy. Ever changing and powerful.

I am free.

Free from hatred, pain, fear and jealousy. Free to be a continuous work in progress. Free to feel what I need to feel. Free to walk away.

Free.

I am nothing but a vibrant current sweeping through the great ocean that is life.

This lil bath oil is one of my favourite products from Lush and my favourite bath melt of theirs. I buy at least one every time I go in, even if it’s the only thing I buy, I know my skin will thank me. The melt itself is just smaller than an egg in size & I find that with my skin, I can make one last for about 4 baths if I cut it up into smaller pieces (which I think is amazing for the price). However, you can totally do what my friend does and throw about 3 in the bath at once, I’d call that a deep treatment.

This wonderful little melt is big when it comes to moisturising and nourishing my skin, rich ingredients packed with moisturising properties and benefits are what I need. I have quite awkward skin and have had many a nightmare with attempting to find a balance between oily and dry skin during the winter months. This melt has been a godsend from day one. Leaving my skin smooth and plumped up with moisture without the leftover oily residue that I often get from other similar products.

What I love about Lush products are the incredible fresh smells of the ingredients. Whilst in the bath, the atmosphere that the oils create are uplifting and refreshing and the smell amplifies. I literally swoon at the fragrance of You’ve Been Mangoed, it’s so good that I’ve genuinely had to stop myself from eating it. (Seriously, I am actually sad that it isn’t edible because if it tastes half as good as it smells.. ohh snap! I know I’m weird and so okay with it.) The scent stays on your skin for a good few hours I have found, I’ve had a couple of people mention this to me after I have used only a quarter of the melt.

You’ve Been Mangoed is a wonderful product overall and I struggle to find any negatives when it comes to using this product. It’s become a go to product that’s a part of my routine. And that’s pretty damn good considering I’m an awkward cat with stuff I put on my skin. If it feels wrong I won’t use it and this is one that feels so, so right. I’d definitely recommend this as a treat for your skin and senses. 

Have you ever used this product? What do you think of it?
