      Citrusy soap from Lush

      I have a considerable stash of Lush soaps and every so often I dive in and pick out one of them to use. The most recent one I picked up was the Lemslip soap.

      This soap was one of the cheapest available at £2.65 per 100g. It used to be a buttercream, but was reformulated as a harder soap before eventually being discontinued. It is a cheery bright yellow in colour and each piece comes cut from a block with a carved sunshine pattern.

      As the name suggests, Lemslip is scented with lemon. I never used to like citrus scents, but after using Lush they have really grown on me. This soap contains fresh organic lemon juice, lime oil and sweet wild orange oil to maximise the citrus scent. It also contains Irish moss gel, rapeseed oil and coconut oil, as well as cocoa butter to stop your skin from drying out. The soap is suitable for vegans.

      This soap is actually designed for oily skin, as the citrus oils help to clear up spots and thoroughly cleanse skin. I wasn't sure about using it at first as I suffer from quite dry skin, but I decided to use it on an occasional basis anyway, particularly on my legs - I epilate regularly and occasionally suffer from ingrowing hairs.

      The soap lathers up really well (but doesn't wear down all that quickly - it's fairly long-lasting). It smells just as nice wet as it does when dry, and is pleasant to use. I usually wash with my body puff, and the soap produces a pleasant lather.

      I always feel thoroughly cleansed after using this soap - possibly too cleansed, as my skin can feel a little dry. However, in fairness the soap is designed for oilier skin types. A light citrus scent remains on my skin after use, but this is normally covered by body lotion.

      I couldn't use this every day as it is too drying, but I like to use it occasionally to keep my skin clear. Despite being slightly drying it is very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I feel that the soap is helpful in preventing spots, and after use my legs, which can occasionally suffer from ingrowing hairs, seem in better condition.

      Lemslip soap is no longer available from Lush, but since they have recently revamped their Retro policy - releasing some older products every month or so - there is a chance it could come back temporarily, so keep an eye on the website!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A lovely creamy soft lemony sort of soap

        Lemslip

        I think if you have read a few of my reviews you will know how much I enjoy a visit to my local Lush shop in the Westfield Centre in Derby. The people who work there are just so lovely, friendly and enthusiastic about the products they sell and can't wait to share the fun. They happily show you how things bubble and fizz in the shop and encourage you to try any of the lovely goodies in there. However I also keep my eye out for bargains on Ebay and from this auction site you can also get hold of Lush products that are limited editions and not available in the shop at all times. I came to buy Ring of Roses bath cream in a bulk lot but have since bought another pot with a pot of 'Lemslip' as well. I have become quite keen on these bath creams but the price puts me off. This was a bit of a bargain as I paid £5.80 including postage for the two pots so this was a bonus.

        This product looks like a yellow soft soap, rather more solid than a body cream and comes in an oval transparent pot and not the usual black pots that many of their products come in. I suspect this one is not one that you can take back and exchange 5 for a face pack but I will take it back and ask when it is finished.

        What is in that pot?
        Inside the pot you will find a light creamy yellow cream which is a solid yellow lemon colour but it is the consistency of a soft soap rather than a thick cream. I found that I had to scoop a lump off and use that to wash with or bang the container until the entire lump came out and use that as a 'soap'. The second method worked much better as it was a better size to hold on to and it lathered up a bit better that way too.

        What is a Butter Cream?

        Well I wasn't too sure and had I just received this as a gift I would probably have used it as a body cream or moisturiser. In fact this is something you use in the bath or shower. You smear this creamy stuff all over your body when it is slightly damp and then leave it for a while before rinsing it off. This leaves you with a wonderfully lemon scented moisturised body once you leave your bath or shower. You can put it in the freezer or fridge too if you want a very cold 'soap' but I prefer to use it at room temperature personally.

        There aren't any suds so how does it clean?
        There is a soapy base to this but it is only 20% soap and 80% moiturising goodies such as glycerine oils and butters so obviously it really doesn't lather up much if at all in my view. It is more like smoothing a cream or lotion over your body then rinsing it off. If you are very mucky or feel you need to have some suds then I would suggest you wash with soap fist then smear yourself with this gorgeous goo and leave it to do its job before rinsing and enjoying the lovely lemony scented aroma it leaves. The lemons are a natural astringent and helps to deep clean your skin so therefore helps with any troublesome oily skin problems.

        If you have to use soap why bother with this?
        I don't use soap on all my body just my bits that need a bit extra. On my main body I just use this as I really love the wonderful creamy feeling that I have after using this. It is packed full of cocoa butter, coconut oil, evening primrose oil, rapeseed oil and glycerine all of which soak into your skin when it is warm and wet and your pores are open and then it leaves it beautifully moisturised and smelling so wonderfully exotic.

        Why call it Lemslip?
        It gets its name as a play on words , sounding pretty similar to Lemsip the flu remedy made with the flavour of lemons. I think the scent is very luxurious a subtle mixture of lemons very citrusy, zingy and also very fresh. In this creamy treat you will find the fresh scent of lemons and a hint of oranges, a smells creamy too a bit like a lemon cheesecake. It also reminds me of their other lovely lemon product 'Lemony Flutter' which is a really thick cream for cuticles, elbows etc.

        What Lush say:-

        "Degreasing, oil-removing, gentle but effective triple citrus cleanser.
        Lemslip is the biggest bargain of all our Butter Cream Shower Soaps but this is only one of the reasons why it's a best seller. The other is that sea salt and its antimicrobial lemon, lime and sweet wild orange scent help to clear up spots all over a body that gets a bit oily now and again. Who doesn't want a nice clear back, front, arms and legs? No-one. So who wants to slip a slice of Lemslip all over their bodies? Everyone."

        What are the benefits?
        This is a luscious mix of lemon juice, lime oil, sweet wild orange oil, sea salt, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil and Irish moss seaweed all good natural ingredients. I find this does make me feel clean even though there are few suds to speak of. In fact my skin feels really lovely and not itchy at all. Often after a bath or shower using some soap my skin feels quite dry and itches. After using this and drying myself I can smell a faint lemon aroma and my skin feels soft and comfortable. This product is also suitable for vegans and made from all natural ingredients. The real lemon juice is also a natural anti-bacterial cleanser.

        Can you use it every day?
        Well yes, I guess you could But I have found that I do like to have some bubbles in some of my baths and showers so I probably wouldn't choose to use it every time. The other thing I would say is that you must keep it in its pot because it is so soft and creamy it sort of melts away if it gets too wet. Don't leave it sitting on a soap dish and let the shower water fall on to it or it will not last long. The other minor problem with this is that it is even more slithery than a normal soap so you can easily let it slip out of your hands when showering so be prepared and hang on to it tightly.

        Can it be used for other things?
        I would say probably not. It looks like a moisturising creamy soft soap and does have a soapy effect so maybe best not to use as a moisturising lotion. Unlike the shower gels I would not think this would be any good as a shampoo or conditioner but I haven't experimented with these to see.

        So would I recommend?
        Yes. It is a lovely rather old fashioned scented and luxurious moisturising bath product but it is not easily available. I have now replaced my Ring of Roses and added this to my collection so you can tell I rather like these. As you use it in the bath or shower and get it out with wet hands some water is bound to get added to the pot and this keeps it soft and doesn't hurt it at all. You can tip out any excess to keep it from dissolving too much. It is best not to let it get too hot as the oils and butters in the product will start to soften. Sadly this doesn't seem to be sold in Lush shops now but may be brought back from time to time so if you want to try this keep your eye out on Ebay or on lush for their retro range which they re release from time to time.

        Thanks for reading.

          Another Fantastic Lush Soap

          With Christmas coming up and quite a few family members to buy for Im trying to write as many reviews as possible lately so its a good thing I have quite a few Lush products waiting to be written about - mainly soaps but I will be trying to change it up a little bit this time! Anyway a few weeks ago I was under the weather with a bad cold and feeling very sorry for myself so I asked my mom to pick me up something in town to make me feel better and a few Lush goodies is what she came back with so I started with this because Lemsip didnt seem to be working so I thought Lemslip might! If nothing else I thought it would wake me up a bit as after 3-4 days in bed complaining it was time to get up and get some fresh air!

          Useful Information:
          Price: 2.50 - 100g bar.
          Stockists: Lush & lush.co.uk
          Other Info: Suitable for vegans & this soap is said not only to smell amazing and leave your skin super soft but as lemon is a powerful astringent it promises stop the breakout of spots and blemishes on your skin! Sounds great.

          As this is a Lush soap everyones bar will vary slightly in shape, size and colour and mien is actually totally different to the image with this review. Mine is the same yellow colour but has a little sun on the side which I think is cute - maybe Ive got the old or newer version of it Im not sure.

          Now you all know by now citrus scents are not my thing at all. Often I find they are to strong and annoy my nose a bit but this one even though it does smell very citrussy (if thats a word) does smell gorgeous. Its more zesty and sweet than strong and overpowering and is a more subtle scent than some other Lush soaps. Having said that the smell definitely helps to awaken your brain and it lingers on your skin for ages after youve used it so I think smell wise this ones a winner. Its not hard to see why this is one of Lush's best selling soaps.

          This soap lathers up really well so you dont need to use loads every time and it certainly leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean all day after Ive used it. It doesnt dry my skin out but leaves it feeling clean and smooth all day long. I dont suffer really from spots on my skin but it certainly helps when I get those little raised bumps on my arms - a few washes with this and they are a thing of the past so this soap does everything it promises for me.

          It might not have been a miracle cold cure but it does everything it claims and everything I would expect from a Lush soap. Ill definitely be buying this again and I highly recommend it to others as well - even if you dont like citrus scents!

          Another winner from Lush. Thanks for reading.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I will definitely be buying this again to use as a hand soap.

            I received a chunk of Lemslip for Christmas. On the label it said "Lemslip Butter Cream". The words "butter cream" make it sound so soft and luxurious I really liked the fresh lemony scent and the little chunks of lemon peel scattered throughout. It costs £2.50 for a 100g slice.

            For a while I used this before shaving in the bath but after a time I noticed I was using Lemslip less and less in the bath and shower and the main reason for this was the lack of creaminess. I guess I thought "butter cream" meant it would be literally buttery and creamy, but its actually just a not-so-drying soap and I like something a bit more special in the bath.

            However, I now use it as a hand soap at the sink and this is where I enjoy using it the most. Its wonderful to wash your hands with something so refreshing and non-drying.

            If you like to use soap in the shower or bath but find it too drying then this would definitely be your thing but I guess I'm just not a soap-in-the-bath kind of girl. I also think the words "butter cream" are a bit misleading. I'd say is more a "moisturing soap".

            Well worth buying

            Lush Lemslip Butter

            Description: Brand: Lush / Type: Body Soap / An effective triple citrus cleansing soap.

            www.lush.co.uk


            Apparently this is one of Lush's best selling products and as a devout fan, I can totally see why. 100g of this soap will cost £2.50 and it is suitable for vegans. You can buy this soap in store or online, if you buy online, your order will arrive packed in popcorn as opposed to polystyrene which is kinder to the environment.

            Lush make hand made cosmetic products from completely natural ingredients. They never test on animals and only use suppliers who also don't test on animals. In addition, Lush support various charities and projects across the world so while they may be a little more expensive than some brands, I do feel that it is worth paying a little extra for.

            You can find more details about the work that Lush does, the products they sell (including ingredients) and locate your nearest store by going onto their website. They often release seasonal products too so it is worth checking frequently to see what is new.

            Lemslip is a butter cream shower soap which is designed to cleanse, moisturise and also help to clear up or prevent spots which can sometimes occur with oily skin. I am quite lucky in that I don't get spots on my back etc but a friend does and swears by this soap to keep her blemish free.

            For me, it is the scent of this soap that makes me keep going back for more, it has the most delicious lemon fragrance which is so nice that you will want to taste it. It is very similar to a lemon cheesecake and when you use it, it coats your body with a creamy moisturiser which you can still smell after showering. There is the slightest hint of sweet coconut and orange oil too and together, the ingredients create a natural scent which is a great way to wake yourself up and feel fresh and full of happy energy.

            Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Irish Moss Gel (Chondrus crispus), Fresh Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Coconut Butter (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Sodium Hydroxide, Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Sweet Wild Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Sodium chloride, *Limonene, *Citral, Benzyl Benzoate, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Citrus Peel}

            *Occurs naturally in essential oils


            These soaps are so easy to use and combine washing with moisturising, unfortunately, because of this, they don't last as long as a normal soap would do, but are still worth every penny in my opinion. I have sensitive skin and this soap doesn't irritate me at all, in fact, it helps to prevent dry skin which is a bonus.

            If you haven't tried this one yet then it is definitely something to pop on your wish list, you will be delighted that you did!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              buttercream = 20% soap and 80% butters, oils and infusions

              I had never even heard of butter cream soaps until i discovered lush a couple of months ago. It's a novel product which is 20% soap to clean and 80% butters, oils and infusions..
              There are three variaties to choose from Lemslip, Heavenly bodies and Ring of Roses the best selling one being Lemslip and having smelt all three I am very impressed with this one.. I'm holding up the clear plastic sandwhich box packaging upto my nose and thinking of how to describe the smell....

              obviously it is very citrusy, zingy and just a little bit heady but also very fresh and lovely to use in the shower on its own or mushed into a shower puff for a bit of lather (not much as it doesn't contain sulphates). It really nourishes and moisturises the skin leaving almost a greasy film on the skin when first applied but rinses off clean and leaves me really clean and smelling lovely without needing to moisturise afterwards, the greatest disadvantage to this one is that it doesn't last very long at all. Used every day it would be gone within two weeks (100g for 2.81) I use it just couple of times a week, and use the lush noubar soap and a soap and glory scrub other days.

              its filled full of citrusy goodness such orange oil, coconut oil, irish moss and lots and lots of lemons! a brilliant bright yellow addition to your bathroom

              lovely as not tested on animals.

              LEMSLIP LUSH

              Butter cream.

              Being new to lush products and having received a basket full of bits from one of my daughters recently, thought i would put this product to the test.

              The package **********

              This lush comes in a little plastic tub, with a snap on lis and the lid has all the ingredients written on it, and is made by Lush.

              The ingredients are all natural and I'm told that they don't do any nasty testing on animals either which is also a bonus from my point of view.

              This butter cream is a deep cleansing lemon perfectly matched with coconut oil and irish moss seaweed.

              It is conditioner for oillier skin. You can freeze this product or simply keep it in the fridge, or just use it in the bathroom at room tempreture.

              You can rub it on your body after a bath to condition your skin, and it really does work.

              The Smell **********

              When i opened the tub i got a strong smell of Lemons and it reminded me of when i was a little girl and we use to have a quarter of lemon sherbits, and the smell is just the same.

              This is a smooth product but when you put it on your skin and your skin touches the water it appears to run away which seems a shame, or best to shower or bath first then after you get out rub some into your skin, this way you dont feel like your just chucking your money down the plug hole.

              Having been new to Lush i wasnt sure how to use it as the instructions just said smooth over body then rinse off, but i think it made more sense to rinse first then rub into your wet skin, as i could then smell this product for ages.

              Do I like LUSH ??

              Well i must admit that i think it is a great product, a bit on the expensive side, but as this was a present i think that i shall enjoy it very much and to be honest it will be on my Christmas wish list, i have tried Lush Bath Bombs before which i really enjoyed, and think that the reason i really enjoy these products is because of the smell firstly, and the lush feel you get on your body after using one of these products.

              I will rate this four out of five, only because used how directed it would just wash off into the plug hole, but used the way i did i found it a very Lush experience.

              Thanks for reading and rating my reviews x.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              -

              Whilst on one of my many Lush shopping sprees, I picked up yet another chunk of Lemslip. It was only when I logged into Dooyoo for the first time in a few weeks that I realised I hadn't reviewed it before. It actually shocked me that I'd never written about it considering it's one of my favourite products.

              Lush says, "Degreasing, oil-removing, gentle but effective triple citrus cleanser.
              Lemslip is the biggest bargain of all our Butter Cream Shower Soaps but this is only one of the reasons why it's a best seller. The other is that sea salt and its antimicrobial lemon, lime and sweet wild orange scent help to clear up spots all over a body that gets a bit oily now and again. Who doesn't want a nice clear back, front, arms and legs? No-one. So who wants to slip a slice of Lemslip all over their bodies? Everyone."

              To me, Lemslip has a very potent scent. It's extremely lemony (good one Lush, imagine having a lemon based product that smells like lemons!), but you can smell the hints of other citrus fruits in there too. I picked out orange, lime and grapefruit, but I think my brain was making things up because there is no grapefruit in it at all. Basically, it's a wonderfully refreshing scent which would be great as a pick me up in the mornings.

              To look at, Lemslip is very simple, but don't confuse this with boring. It's strong yellow in colour with lemon peel on top and it varies in shape and size depending on the slice you receive. The colour may also vary due to the butter cream being handmade, but it will always be a strong yellow.

              Using Lemslip couldn't be easier, just break a bit off and smush into a shower puff then lather it all over your body. You can use it without the puff, but you'll get less than half the lather that way. Then you just have to rinse yourself and tada. Fresh, clean and smelling like lovely lemons.

              If you're wondering if using Lemslip will also work as an air freshener in your bathroom, then keep reading. After using a small chunk, my bathroom was left smelling like lemons for hours afterwards. My friends even commented on it when we arrived back at my house after going out for dinner. As for on the skin, the scent will last an hour or two. It may not last on some skin types at all, but on my skin, it lasts around and hour and a half.

              When taking a peek at the ingredients, I found that there were 5 oils in it. That's where the confusion kicked in. How could such an oily product combat oily skin? Well, I don't know how it does it, but it does. My skin was left with no oily residue, yet it was still left moisturised. I can't comment on the spot fighting abilities of Lemslip as I have really clear skin at the moment. Maybe it's due to my regular usage of Lemslip?

              Personally, I keep Lemslip in the freezer, then when I know I'll be using it that day, I'll move it to the fridge, this just keeps it firmer and cooler, therefore longer lasting and far more refreshing.

              If you like the sound of it, run on down to Lush and grab yourself a chunk. 100g will cost you £2.41 and will last you around 10 showers. You can also buy it online at lush.co.uk.

              Advantages
              --------------

              - cheap (the cheapest of Lush's butter creams)
              - refreshing
              - moisturising
              - great scent

              Disadvantages
              ------------------

              - scent can be overpowering for some
              - you can only get a decent lather by using a shower puff

              In conclusion, I'll definitely continue to purchase Lemslip, and I advise you give it a try at least once. There's no harm in trying, right?
              Unless you're allergic to the ingredients that is....

              Thanks for reading!

                nice refreshing soap for oily or problem skin

                I bought some of this Lush butter cream soap as I loved a few of the other ones I've tried and this one looked nice and smelt refreshing... a good one to try for summer I thought. This is currently being sold for £2.30 for a 100g slice.

                This butter cream is a bright yellow and smells mainly of lemons but you can also detect a hint of coconut and some other fruit in it.

                The main reasons why I like butter creams is because they can be used just like a soap but are more moisturising than one due to the cocoa butter in them. This one also has coconut oil in it to add some softness to the skin.

                When I used it for the first time, I noticed that it smelt nice and fresh of coconut and lemons and although it didn't lather up that much, it did leave my skin feeling fresh and clean.

                One thing I did notice however, is that it did feel a bit drying after I towelled myself off which wasn't too pleasant. I thought that since this product has got cocoa butter and coconut oil in it, that it would avoid the drying out of the skin but for me it didn't.
                I do have quite sensitive and often dry skin and this is why I don't really use soaps on my body and only use it to wash my hands.

                This soap is meant more for people with oily skin and problem skin to help clear it up so I guess I should have known that I'm not one of those as I've got dry, sensitive skin. I thought that since it was summer, I could use it to help feeling sticky but I guess I'll have to find something else to do that.

                I do still use this on my hands and I really like the smell. I might buy another simply because it looks so cute and smells really nice. Now that I don't use it for my body anymore, it will also last me longer which is ok by me.

                Highly recommend!

                This is a really nice soap from Lush. It is one of their body butters (just another word for soap really - most of it is marketing hype). The slight difference with a butter is that is is richer and more moisturising than soap. There is a lot of oil in this product and so it is probably not a good idea for someone with very greasy skin. My skin is combination. I get a greasy nose and dry cheeks. I have used this Lemslip butter on my face and it has worked well, moisturised well but did not leave me greasy or bring me out in spots.

                I find this to be quite a sweet smelling lemon scent. It is a little bit like lemon flavoured boiled sweets rather than a sharp citrus lemon scent. In fact, it is quite like lemsip. The scent lasted quite well on my skin - I suppose because I rubbed it in. I used some just to wash my hands when there was just a bit left to use up and every time i used it, I left the bathroom feeling happy, because it is such a fresh and uplifting fragrance.

                At about £2.30 for 100 grams of this product, it is pretty expensive for a soap but like I always say, you expect to pay more for Lush because they sell such lovely smelling products.

                  A very lemony moisturising body butter.

                  This was the first body butter I ever bought from Lush in fact it was the first product I ever bought. I'd been in lots of times before and enjoyed the colours and smells of the store but I had never been in a position to buy something. My friends were all raving about it and they had an offer running for a freebie. After stocking up on gifts for my Lush mad friends I decided to treat myself following a demo I chose this body butter. Since then I buy a new slice everytime I go to Lush.

                  The fragrance of the Lemslip body butter is overpoweringly lemony. It's very sweet and is amazing to use. It leaves your skin soft and the shower smelling fresh and clean.

                  Body butters are a change from your usual shower creams and bath gels, they get you squeaky clean and really moisturise your skin.

                  If you're into sweet smells, this body butter is for you. I love it just be careful not to slip after you use it.

                  Lush Lush LUSH!

                  This product is being labelled as "deep cleansing lemon perfectly matched with coconut oil and Irish Moss seaweed:
                  condition for oilier skin."

                  Freeze it, chill it or use at bathroom temperature.

                  Smooth over your body and then rinse off.

                  Suitable for vegans and made from natural ingredients.

                  As I have sensitive skin I am always careful about what I use so as not to cause any flare ups!

                  This product smells delicious and very lemony (hence the lemslip name), & reminds me just of the drinks you have on a sicky day!

                  I personally prefer to use it at bathroom temperature (wouldn't anything too cold, not in December!!) and I find that this product
                  leaves my skin feeling very smooth to the touch and I know my other half agrees!

                  I got this product as part of a gift set and was very impressed with it. I have no complaints about this.

                  You can also find this review on ciao.co.uk under the same title, username katyeverett :)

                  Great AND not expensive!!

                  On my recent trip to Lush I needed one more smallish item to make my spend up to £20 so I could get my free gift. I went to th buttercreams and just picked the one with the smallest weight/price on it which just happened to be the Lemslip one.

                  In the shop this came packaged in a small rectangular box which did up by those popper type things. The box is see through so enabling you to see the colour of the product. It didn't look appealing straight away, it was just a mush of yellow, it didn't look like the picture, but I thought i'd give it a go anyway. I do know that depending on where you get this product it comes dfferently, i.e in a gift box it comes in a small more rounded tub with it all mushed up, but if you order from mail order you get a solid piece like a cheese in a take away kind of box.

                  So, what is a buttercream? Well effectively it is a soap. Lush make it with 20% soap and 80% moisturising bits like butters and oils. They work better in the shower, to use it you scoop a small amount out with your fingers, smooth it over yourself and rub in, you then rinse it off. This process leaves you clean, smelling good and moisturised!

                  I have never tried another buttercream but this one has definitely made me want to try more. The smell of it wasn't what I was expecting but still amazing! I was expecting it to be really fresh lemony smell but instead it was rather more sweet than I expected. The scent I can most liken it to is lemon sherbets, it smells absolutely identical! It does have a zing to it but it's a sugary one rather than a fresh one. The scent doesn't linger amazingly on the skin but it does last for a little while.

                  I don't think this product is overly expensive, it costs £2.30 per 100g of it and 100g will probably last 10-15 showers. This is available to buy from Lush stores, mail order and online.

                  As always, it's the ingredients that make Lush different from other places:
                  Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Irish Moss Infusion (Chondrus crispus), Fresh Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Coconut Butter (Cocos nucifera), Perfume+, Sodium Hydroxide, Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Sweet Wild Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Sodium Chloride, Limonene, Citral, Benzyl Benzoate, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Citrus Peel

                    Not for me!

                    I came across this product as I had treated myself to a gift box and not being a bath person, I purchased one of the shower boxes instead. This product came with the gift. I have always been curious about Butter Creams but never dared to try them.

                    The Butter Cream came in a plastic tub so it was possible to scoop out some with your hand. I felt this product had a weird texture. Having consulted the Lush website on how to use it as it doesn't have instructions on how to use it, I found the product doesn't have a lather you need to rub it across your body which was a strange experience. Also it didn't stay together so you found that the Butter Cream went to waste as it fell into the shower and down the drain.

                    The product itself had a nice refreshing lemony scent, a scent that reminds me of washing up liquid. It didn't wake me up like I had expected. Overall I wasn't impressed with this product. I am a fan of Lysh products but this one didn't float my boat!

                      Gorgeous smell, but much too slippery

                      I ordered this with several other products from the Lush website, and was very impressed with the order processing and delivery time, it took no more than four days for the products I'd ordered to arrive, excitingly packaged with popcorn in a cardboard box, wrapped in paper printed to look like brown wrapping paper and held together with string, sealed with wax.

                      The Lemslip itself was in a plastic box that looked like the type takeaway restaurants often use, with the ingredients and product description on stickers on the lid. When I opened the box to have a good sniff, I was delighted. This stuff smells delicious (yes, I eat lemons).

                      It smells even better in the shower, which is one of three reasons why I persist with it after the first couple of attempts. The other reasons are a) it is very moisturising and b) the smell lingers on my skin for ages afterwards, which I absolutely love.

                      Before I ordered Lemslip I read a few reviews, so I was prepared for it to be semi-solid. I knew I should pinch off a bit each time I used it, rather than try to pick up and lather with the whole piece. Unfortunately, even knowing the right techniques for Lemslip enjoyment, I still find it very frustrating to use. I tried using it on a bath puff, rubbing it between my hands, but it doesn't really lather at all. I also lose whole blobs when they slide out of my grip and down the plughole. It seems to be more effort than it's worth, so I only use it once every three showers, to save me from getting too stressed out as I try to wash.

                      I enjoy the scent of this product enormously so I am going to try one of the lemon scented solid soaps next instead. Lemslip, like all the buttercreams, is quite expensive for the amount of uses you get, so I think I'll save the cash and the energy, and ask for it for presents only rather than make it a regular buy.
