This girl was turned bright pink after a Lush product went spectacularly wrong

She was like this for THREE DAYS.

FOR MOST OF US, getting something from Lush Cosmetics is synonymous with relaxation and a bit of pampering. For this girl, it now means disaster.

Abi Shenton posted this picture on Twitter earlier this week, asking Lush if their products were supposed to have turned her skin bright pink:

You see that? She looks pretty damn pink. Shenton’s photo was retweeted tens of thousands of times, and Lush eventually responded:

“Yikes!” indeed. But it quickly came to light that the disaster wasn’t totally the fault of Lush Cosmetics.

The product in question was a bath oil called Razzle Dazzle, which is supposed to be dissolved in water before using. The thing is, Shenton used it like a bar of soap.

Speaking to Pretty52, she said she was pink for three days after rubbing the oil on her face and body:

The correct procedure is that you are supposed to dilute it into water but I thought it was a soap and rubbed it all over my body and face (explains why my hair is dry).
Three days and several baths later I am no longer pink! I love Lush and will continue to shop there, it’s just a shame that I wasn’t told how to correctly use the product when purchasing.

Oh dear. But on the up side, now everyone knows what NOT to do?
