I Am A Radiant Being

   Shoot for the stars! I Am A Radiant Being is one of the new bath oil formulas designed for LUSH Oxford Street, as well as a beautiful mantra we should all tell ourselves each and every morning... According to an Oxford Street manager, this bath oil was inspired by Angel Cards, which Mark and the team use to get in a positive mood at the start of some days.
   Unique, vegan, and known to be a bath product of pure luxury; I was ecstatic to try this product...

"An enlightening blend of oils and butters allows you to feel like the star that you are!"

   When I opened my little bag of bath oils that my wonderful friend shipped to me, I was thrilled by the lovely product I picked up first... A pink, three-tier star lightly coated with lustre. I Am A Radiant Being seems to have a harder "outer shell" with a soft, dark pink center. Other bath oils such as Razzle Dazzle are soft and melt even more quickly to the touch, where Radiant Being only gets slightly oily in your hands.
   A QUICK TIP: Bath oils are melting products! Make sure your bath water is hot so you get a nice, even distribution of the product through your bath water... My water was warm, and this product just bobbed around, barely releasing any oil. I had to add hot water, so I'm not sure how that may have affected my experience with this product.
   The initial scent of this product is very similar to that of Rose Jam, but with beautiful geranium and lemon undertones. Many people told me to think of Turkish delight when it came to the fragrance, and they were pretty spot on...
   The scent of rose and lemon oil lasted on my skin about thirty minutes after my bath, but that wasn't disheartening to me since most fragrances fade rather quickly on me. Not surprisingly, the organic Shea and cocoa butters and coconut oil left my skin feeling silky soft... I did notice that the moment the water settled and Radiant Being was completely dissolved, a light ring of pink oil formed around the tub.
   I always anticipate cleanup with LUSH products, because you never know exactly how a product will react with your specific water type or the type of tub laminate you have... As usual with heavily moisturizing bath products (such as Butter Ball bath bomb, etc), I recommend using this product when your skin is relatively clean so that there isn't any potential for buildup on your skin... The cleanup was easy, and all I used was a wet wash cloth.
   I really enjoyed I Am A Radiant Being bath oil, and agree that it is a luxury product... I'm giving it a 4/5; I'm not super into rose scented products, and the "shell" made it a bit more difficult to melt than other LUSH bath oils I've tried thus far... I definitely recommend this product, especially as a gift for someone in need of "me time"; pair it with something zesty to bring out the lemon oil.
