Warming but a bit weird

By 

from USA

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

Wiccy magic muscles is one of the few Lush products that I'm on the fence about. I love how it works, love the massaging feeling of the beans and how incredibly good it is as a moisturiser. But it's greasy. Really greasy. But that's to be expected with the huge amounts of cocoa butter that's in it. I've used it after getting out of the shower, just as a normal moisturiser and had to wait what felt like forever for it to sink in enough that I could get dressed.

It's got a great cinnamon scent to it. A strong cinnamon scent, to be perfectly honest. I've never found it all that good for relieving tired or sore muscles and as someone who works on her feet for 13 hours a day, I know what tired and sore muscles really are! The other problem is that the beans are so close to the surface that they quickly start to fall out which leads to the bar cracking and falling apart. Picking the beans up off the bathroom floor is not my idea of a good time, especially not when I'm waiting for a product to sink in enough that I can get dressed and even less so when I'm also sore and tired.

Overall, it's ok. It's probably not something I'd buy again though.

Greasy but soothing for dry skin

By 

from USA

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

So I received this as part of a Christmas present because I have very sore muscles all the time. Now I don't believe the bar actually does much for sore and achy muscles but it does seem to help my dry skin. I have ashy, itchy, dry legs from this brutal winter and because the bar is made from Cocoa Butter and Jojoba Oil, it is moisturizing my legs when I used it. Unfortunately, because of the oils it is greasy and kind of messy so I would not use it when you are going to wear something fancy or go out right after using. Same goes for the scent; I love the scent but others may not because it is a strong peppermint-y and cinnamon smell. The bar will melt if at body temperature or higher so it is recommended to keep the bar in a tin or a cool, dry place. After you've been using the bar for a long time, you can break it into smaller pieces which will make it easier to use.

Effectiveness
Not great for the intended use.

Moisturizes Brilliantly!

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

I can't actually speak to the bar's effects on achy muscles because I have never tried it for that, but I still think this is an amazing product!

I don't use this as a massage bar as such because it is rather messy, being greasy and the beans falling off everywhere, but I do use it in the shower for the dry, itchy skin on my legs during the winter. I normally get in the shower with the water off, and rub this into my body, letting any beans go right down the drain. Then I take a shower as usual. It's a little bit on the unconventional side for using the product, but it works for me and leaves me silky soft and moisturized and without any more itchy, flaky, dry winter skin.

The scent is a bit on the stronger side, but you quickly become used it and the spicy smell is quite warming on a winter's day.

So, I definitely recommend this if you are going to shower directly after use. If you use anywhere outside the shower make sure to put down a towel to collect the grease and the beans that fall off.

Wiccy Magic Muscles is magic... with a bonus!

By 

from Santa Barbara, CA

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

I love this product. Its a great skin moisturizer, with a spicy, warm scent. The Azuki beans in it give a nice amount of pressure, and I like to use this bar on my calves and feet after running. I like the fact that Lush uses fair-trade products, with minimal preservatives and chemicals - there are no preservatives in the Wiccy Bar!

My only complaint is that it used to seem to last longer - lately when I buy one it seems to lose its beans and break apart in a short time - maybe 6-8 uses. I remember it used to seem to last a lot longer, but maybe I am just using more of it each time.

A huge and unexpected bonus to the Wiccy bar is that it repels insects! I've found when I use it that mosquitos and other biting bugs leave me alone. And a couple years ago our neighborhood had a flea problem and my dog brought home some fleas - which love biting me. When I used my Wiccy bar, I noticed that the fleas stayed away - and within a few days my flea control had worked and they were gone. But now, in "buggy season" I just use Wiccy daily to avoid bites of any kind - and I smell spicy and yummy instead of like bug spray!

massage and moisturize all at once!

By 

from Cordova, TN

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

Okay, first of all, I have to admit I am a LUSH junkie - this is easily my favorite company. Their products are all handmade, natural, and absolutely wonderful for the skin. If you have never tried LUSH, you are missing out big time. www.LUSH.com - go, you will be glad you did, I promise!

Now, onto the product at hand - LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar. This is a heavenly treat.  A little bar packed with moisturing goodness, and little beans pressed into one side of it. You warm it in your hands, or glide it over the body and it just melts right onto the skin. YOu can use the bean side for a more massaging feel, or the smooth side, your choice. This is fabulous to use to either give or get a massage, *or* you can use this or any of LUSH's massage bars right after getting out of the shower, as a moisturizer. These soak right in - they have just the right amount of glide, and are never greasy - that's the best part! Hm, or maybe the best part os the lovely, spicy, invigorating smell of Wiccy, or the fact that is makes your muscles tingle and feel so good. You will have to try and see for yourself!

Feel the burn with Wiccy -- not from all those lunges.

By 

from Revere, MA

Comments about LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar:

Having recently amped up my exercise regimen, I was eager to try a massage bar that promised to soothe my aching muscles. While I wasn't expecting this bar to be nearly as intense as it was, I do think it is effective.

First, **the scent. **Wow. Do not slather this on if you think you're going to be running out to a hot date later that night. It is very medicinal, chock full of cinnamon, and just plain strong. I actually don't mind the smell at all, but it isn't something I'd like to tote around as the latest and greatest perfume.

Second, **the consistency. **This massage bar will definitely leave you a bit oily and greasy, so it is best to apply at night (after you're in for the night and don't have any other plans), or it is even great to hop out of the shower, apply, and then rinse yourself off.

Third, **the burn. **I expected a little heat with this bar, but I was so surprised when I started feeling a warm glow in my skin that kindled to a full-blazing fire. My whole body temperature felt like it went up, and I could feel the tingling in my muscles. I think that this bar would also be great on a very chilly night or even for someone who was sick. It warms you right up. I used it on a very cold night and had to change into a tank top because this thing made me so warm. I definitely feel that this is an effective product that lives up to its claim. The aduki beans also add a wonderful massaging sensation that can't be beat.

This product loses a few points for me due to limited use (i.e. scent and oil factor), as it certainly would be great to rub some of this on immediately after a workout. Instead, I need to wait until I come home and am in for the night before using. All things considered, though... it's worth it.
