LUSH: Tisty Tosty

Another day, another Valentine’s Day special melting/fizzing bath melt to review…

This time it’s the turn of Tisty Tosty. Listen, I don’t know how many times I’ve got to break it to you… I have no idea as to how Lush come up with names for their products. I hazard a guess it’s just a case of choosing the weirdest and most unrealistic sounding words, and putting them together to sound like a tongue twister.

You never know… We may wake up tomorrow to find that they’ve released ‘How Much Wood Would a Wood Chuck Chuck if a Wood Chuck could Chuck Wood’ as a massage bar. Only the finest Oak and Elm oils used in that one… 😆

Anyway, so yes, onto Tisty Tosty. I have tried this one a couple of times before, I like it… If you love roses, you’ll love this! There are seven real dry rosebuds embedded in this heart shaped bath melt. I love this for many reasons, one of which is that it’s not shaped like their other melts – in the shape of a spheres. Lush have pulled it out of the bag with this one, it’s  LOVE(ly) and very fitting for Valentine’s Day.

He loves me, he loves me not – Tisty Tosty is based on a medieval love potion. Studded with seven real rosebuds, it is scented with a captivating combination of floral orris root powder, rose, and lemon. As this dissolves in the bath, you may fall in love with it as the scent of geranium, jasmine and rose create a spellbinding fragrance. Rose oil also gets to work soothing broken hearts – it’s used by aromatherapists to lift the spirits.

Now for the cool and interesting part… Apparently, rumour has it that there is a mystical love potion attached to this bath melt. Read it below:

You’re supposed to drop it into a hot bath filled with water (because what’s the use of dropping it in an empty one?) and then let the roses pull away from the salts. Then, place one rose at either side of the bath (in all four corners) and sit in the middle chanting some weird love spell (as seen in picture above) and then playing “They Love Me, They Love Me Not” with the remainder of the rosebuds’ petals.

Similarly to Lover Lamp, this one is white and makes the water a bland colour. Having said that, the scent and the rosebuds make it all the more worthwhile.

I like it. I like that it’s based on a medieval love potion and that it’s Valentine’s Day specific. I love love, I love this and I love Lush!
