After mistaking a brightly-coloured Lush bath bomb for soap, UK woman Abi Shenton was left a little pink-faced. Quite literally.
Rather than hide away, she shared the (hilarious) evidence on Twitter, writing, “Hi! @lushcosmetics just a quick question, are your products supposed to stain the human skin fluorescent pink?”
However, Abi soon realised the error of her ways as she explained in a tweet three days (and several baths) later.
“You are supposed to dilute [the product] into water but I thought it was a soap and rubbed it all over my body and face (explains why my hair is dry)," she wrote.
“I misused this product! ... A very helpful friend of mine works at Lush and helped me remove all the pink stain with lemon juice, olive oil and a gritty face wash.”
But hey, we've all been there — and we all have one (or 1558468) beauty horror stories of our own. Just ask the ladies of Reddit, who shared their worst beauty mistakes in a very cringe-worthy thread. Many of their stories were universal — over-plucked eyebrows, fake tan horror situation, using the wrong foundation by about a zillion shades — but then again, some most definitely aren't.
