When you’re a recovering beauty junkie like I am, the temptation to try out new products becomes stronger than ever.
So I tried to focus my attention to the world of soap to keep me from re-accumulating stuff. Since soap gets used up faster than most other beauty products, I can try out a lot of different kinds of it.
So far the strategy is keeping my lust for new stuff well under control.
This is the first product I bought from Lush. I went inside their store knowing exactly what I wanted: a soap that smells so good I’d want to eat it.
Taking the sales person’s recommendation, I bought 200 grams of this.
Buying lush soap is a little like eating in a restaurant. You’re not there just to eat, you’re also there for the experience.
When you buy a Lush soap, you buy an experience (Here I am trying to justify spending Php 245 for a 100g. soap).
Here’s my take:
It looks like leche flan.
It smells like caramel and toffee and honey and burnt sugar and creme brulee (all combined in a soap bar). I love sweet fragrances. The first 2 times I used it, it didn’t give out that much scent. I used it a few more times and it got more fragrant. I’m not sure why.
It gets used up fast, but it doesn’t melt as most reviews I read say it does. I did place it in a soap dish farthest from the shower, though.
It’s a little drying but I’m ok with that because I was after the scent. It leaves a very nice scent in the shower. Not only every after you shower — as long as you keep the soap there, it will leave a toffee-ish scent.
Tips and other notes:
Slice it into mini-bars to make it last a little longer.
Considering that it’s handmade, the soaps performance might not be consistent. Reviews on this soap extremely vary e.g., same say it only gives a faint scent (mine didn’t), some say it smells like vomit.
Will I buy this again? Yes. It’s a good soap to have especially now that it’s sooo hot and humid and you want to smell extra fresh.
