Magnificent is a relatively new bath oil, being released last year with two other exclusive bath oils and all three being exclusive to Lush Oxford Street, online and other bigger stores. Magnificent is supposed to really lift your spirits and make you feel well… magnificent!
Magnificent is designed to look like vintage fireworks and is one of the harder bath oils in the range as the outer shell is made up of a more solid formula.
The scent is a citrus trio of Tangerine, Grapefruit and Litsea Cubeba. The sweet Tangerine is the strongest of the three, which is definitely a great ingredient to give you an uplifted feeling, there’s something that’s just happy about the fruit’s juicy aroma. Grapefruit and restorative Litsea Cubeba add sharper and more complex citrus notes, but the whole scent is still pretty sweet and theres a slight creamy warmth from the butters that incase the fragrance. I think Magnificent would make a great pairing with the likes of Avobath or Brightside!
Generally, when using a bath oil, I love to make my bath super hot, add the bath oil and allow the water to cool whilst the product melts before stepping in, otherwise the bath oils can take a good while to fully melt. Magnificent was a steady melter but fizzed a little thanks to a small amount of bath bomb mix incorporated into it. There was also a little amount of lustre floating steadily through the water.
Magnificent wouldn’t be a bath oil unless it contained moisturising ingredients to deeply nourish and soften the skin, so it contains Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Jojoba Oil. You can immediately feel these ingredients once you’re in the bath as they strongly imbue the water with their oily goodness.
Whilst the smell was pretty lost while I was actually in the bath, it surprisingly remained on my skin after, albeit it not for very long.
