Although put off by the look and the copious amounts of glitter I was so drawn in by the smell of this bath melt. Fresh cut fruit, of most any kind, is such a high ranking smell in my book. I knew going into it this was going to make a mess. I was prepared to deal with it simply for the smell.
The fresh cut lime scent was, and is, so appealing but after I turned off the camera and actually got into the tub I felt like the smell started to disappear all too quickly. I was a little disappointed in that fact because that's what I was most looking forward to.
I've only ever tried one other bath melt (You've been mangoed) and I have to say I wasn't impressed by either one. Less so with star light. I thought, since it contains cocoa and Shea butter, that it would make such a smooth bath I wouldn't be able to get out. It didn't. There was absolutely no silkiness to my bath. I was stunned, and disappointed, and a little let down.
As I said before the smell didn't come out as much in the bath nor did it "stick" to my skin. I'm really not sure what to say about it's longevity. It was almost non existant? The only thing that lasted was the glitter. It was everywhere. On my skin. Stuck to the side of my tub. Just everywhere.
Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt - $6.95
Seeing as how I knew that I was going to be covered in glitter I can't blame that on my bath melt. I did have to take a very vigorous shower afterwards. I was afraid that if I sat anywhere or put any clothes on they'd also be covered in glitter. Again, it's what I expected. What I can say with confidence is that I was let down. The smell just didn't last as long as I would have expected. I had the jets in my tub on the entire time (even though it did produce very soft, fast dissipating, bubbles) and it was as if I'd put a couple drops of lime oil in my bath. Normally with jets full blast for the entire bath the smell sticks around for quite a while. It didn't make my bath soft, it didn't leave my skin soft, and it was all around a disappointment. Unless they can figure out what the scent gives up and runs away, and change that, I wouldn't purchase this bath melt again.
