Give your skin an underwater shower massage with Aqua Mirabilis. Ground almond shells stimulate your bumpy bits and rub away dead skin cells to leave it soft, clear and smooth. Great for caring for dry skin, we make our Aqua Mirabilis body butter with a luxurious blend of cocoa and almond butters with just the perfect consistency to moisturize and sink in easily so your skin is left feeling silky soft, not greasy. For a finishing effect, beautiful sandalwood and rose oils calm redness and lend a gorgeous fragrance to the bar, and your body.
Cocoa Butter, Almond Butter, Laureth 4, Ground Almond Shells, Sandalwood Oil, Rose Absolute.
How To Use:
Can be used under water in the bath or shower. Rub the bar in a circular motion along all those rough, dry body parts. Massage in the rich butters, rinse gently and air dry (if possible). Body butters are designed to melt at body temperature, keep them safely out of direct sunlight and somewhere cool.
My Take on Lush Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter:
I don’t know why Lush calls it body butter? It is so misleading. It’s an exfoliating bar that is moisturizing too! Anyway, if you use this bar “as suggested” to use in shower, it won’t last for more that 4-5 washes. This product just melts under water.
So, the best way to use it is cut into equal 4 parts and use one piece at a time and store the remaining ones in the fridge. One part roughly lasts for 3 washes for me. That is, in total I get ~12 washes per bar. That’s not much for the price paid, but this is one really awesome product that suits me the best. Lush sells tins especially to store the body butters. You can see I already have one and that’s because Aqua Mirablis is a permanent product for me.
The texture of this bar is just perfect, not very rough and not too soft. The scrub particles are ground almond shells and they do a good job of scrubbing the dead skin away. The almond and cocoa butter present in the bar moisturize your body well. Even in winters here in Hyderabad, I do not feel the need to apply moisturizer. It doesn’t make skin greasy, just beautifully smooth and moisturized. You really have to touch and feel your skin after using this bar! Also, I feel that it removes tan too. Last summer, when I was swimming every single day for 3 months, I used this soap twice a week and I could see that it removed tan, but damn it’s so pricey, I wish I could use it alternate days.
Also, the bar melts if you leave it at room temperatures. You have to store them in the fridge and I find that a bit of an overhead. Last summer, I forgot to keep the bar back in the fridge and the next day all that was left in the tin was almond porridge! Oh and did I tell you, it smells yum! If you like peanut butter, you will be tempted to lick it 😀 ! No seriously, it smells yum! But if you don’t like peanut butter (really? No like peanut butter?? sure??), then you may have a problem with its smell.
Pros of Lush Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter:
- Just perfect texture for a scrubbing bar.
- Leaves your skin smooth, soft and moisturized.
- Smells yummm!
- Removes tan.
Cons of Lush Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter:
- Melts if left at room temperature, so have to store it in the fridge.
- To get more value for money, you have to cut the bar in pieces, which again is a overhead, at least for lazy bum like me.
