A woman has literally been left red-faced after dying herself bright pink when she misused a bath product from Lush cosmetics.
Abi Shenton’s skin was left “fluorescent pink” for three days after she mistook a bath bomb from the toiletries company for soap. Ms Shenton tweeted Lush saying: “Are your products supposed to stain the human skin a florescent shade of pink?”

A picture of Ms Shenton looking rosy was re-tweeted nearly 19,000 times before she removed the image from social media. Lush responded over Twitter, exclaiming, “Yikes!” at the sight of Ms Shenton’s skin.

Ms Shenton, who is no longer pink, said the product she used is called Razzle Dazzle Bath Oil and she does not blame Lush for the incident.
Ms Shenton told Pretty52: “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.

“I misused the product. I love Lush and will still continue to shop there.”
Ms Shenton said she removed the pink stain using lemon juice, olive oil and a gritty face wash.
Lush told the Independent: “We are as red in the face as Abi at the idea that one of our bath melts has been mistaken for a soap.”
