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.

I mean, if that doesn’t look like leche flan to you…

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.

    Wow! I'm going to try this one. Also the Snowcake soap and Sultana. Thank you. By the way, nice blog po and more power. xoxo

  2. I'm not sure. I buy it for the fragrance. :P

    But since it has some honey, that should have some benefits. :D

  3. I love Honey I Wash The Kids soap. It's one of my fav soaps from LUSH. There's also a shower gel called It's Raining Men with the same scent.

  4. I'm tempted to buy O.O does this soap give any other skin benefits aside from fragrant?

  5. Rae! I've used this before. Yung sa akin, yung top part (parang honeycomb) ang unang natatanggal. Nagamit ko rin yung jumping juniper na shampoo. Kakabili ko lang ulit ng Karma soap and shampoo. Bango!
