Lush Lemslip Butter
Advantages: Amazing scent, cleanses well
Disadvantages: Slightly drying
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!
