This girl turned FLUORESCENT PINK for three days!

Well that’s one way to get noticed! 

Imagine turning pink and we don’t mean because you are unbelievably sun-burnt but because you used a product that literally turned your skin florescent flamingo pink. 

Young Abi Shenton from the UK used a product from skin-care company Lush that stained her skin fluorescent pink.

Abi said on Twitter, "Hi! Lush Cosmetics just a quick question, are your products supposed to stain the human skin fluorescent pink?” 

With the question she also attached a photo of her pink skin. To be honest we think Abi is totally rocking it, she looks like a character straight out of our favourite Pixar film. 


HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? HOW CAN YOUR SKIN TURN PINK!?! The kind and good people at Lush were just as confused as we were. They replied to Abi saying, Yikes! Please contact our friends in the UK at Lush We Care so they can help you out with this!”


Abi was pink for a couple of days before she discovered the reason for her abnormal skin colour. 

After getting in contact with Lush Abi discovered that she had used the product wrong she said, “The product used was called ‘Razzle Dazzle’ and it is not a bath bomb! 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. 3 days + several baths later I am no longer pink!”

“I misused this product! I love LUSH and will still continue to shop there. It’s just a shame that I wasn’t told how to correctly use the product when purchasing! 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!” 

Earlier this year, it was revealed that a young girl called Olivia now has an outline of an iPhone permanently on her skin. After falling asleep with her phone on her leg she suffered a serve chemical burn that left her with the outline. 


Let this be a lesson to all of us: If you don’t want your skin to turn an amazing shade of pink read the instructions. Or maybe you want to rock the pink skin and if that’s the case we will still love you.
