UNITED KINGDOM — Who has time to read labels these days??
A UK woman is bound to spend more time doing just that after mistaking a Lush Cosmetics bath melt for soap. Instead of dissolving the bright pink ball of Razzle Dazzle bath oil in her bath water, Abi Shenton rubbed it all over her skin real good.
And then she came out of the bath with really bright pink Razzle Dazzle skin. And it did not wipe off.
She posted a pic on Twitter and reached out to Lush for help. “Hi! @lushcosmetics just a quick question, are your products supposed to stain the human skin fluorescent pink?…”
Poor Abi’s photo was retweeted more than 15,000 times before she removed it.
“Yikes!” was the first thing Lush said, followed by, “Please contact our friends in the UK at @LushWeCare so they can help you out with this! ”

Abi talked to Pretty52, explaining her mistake and saying while she was bright pink for three days, she still loves Lush.
TIP: Abi also said lemon juice, olive oil, and a gritty face wash helped get rid of the last of the pink (for those who still don’t believe you should follow directions).
Lush told HuffPost UK Lifestyle, “We are as red in the face as Abi at the idea that one of our bath melts has been mistaken for a soap.”
Shout out to Abi for being brave enough to share her story AND for being very thorough; looks like she didn’t miss a single spot.
