Advantages: Cleans Skin & Okay Scent
Disadvantages: Smell Is Overpowering & The Price
Ive finally come to my last Lush soap review at last so now all I have to do is the rest of my Lush reviews LOL sorry for people who arent fans! This is the last soap that I tried from Lush and to be honest I only bought it on a recommendation from one of the staff as I was buying the Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistc as well and she said the two products go really well together so I decided to give it a try. Ive never been let down by a Lush soap in the past but I have to say this is probably the worst one Ive tried - its not that its terrible it simply just isnt as nice as others Ive tried from the range.
A 100g bar of this soap will set you back around £3.10 from Lush stores and each bar is just a little bit different. As each 100g piece is cut of a really large bar everyone will end up with a slightly different shape and colour soap. My little bar is a really cute yellow colour but it has little green flecks at the top which remind me of mould so thats a bit off-putting, this certainly isnt the most feminine of all the Lush soaps but its okay I guess. I reckon this soap is more designed for men if Im going on appearance as I think us ladies prefer something a bit girlier.
Now the smell of this is definately an accquired taste because at times I love and and at other times I find the scent way to strong. The coffee fragrance is definately the strongest and at times I find it to be a little overpowering as you cant smell the other scents as much. When you get the soap wet the other scents do come out a little bit but only a really light smell of vanilla and orange which are both very nice smells but I would have liked them to be a bit stronger or for the coffee scent to be a little lighter. I definately like to use this in the morning as the scent wakes me up for the day and its like having a vanilla latte without having to spend a fortune in Starbucks!
I dont usually use soaps in the shower because I dont feel like the clean my skin properly and they also tend to leave my skin feeling dry and tight afterwards but this one doesnt at all. My skin always feels dead soft and smooth after Ive used this and it smells fantastic for hours afterwards. I even recommend that people with sensitive skin use this because even though it is scented it wont irratate or annoy your skin at all just clean it whilst softening it and making sure it looks super smooth. I dont think this made as much difference to my skin as other soaps from Lush have so its not the best one I have ever tried by a mile - also combine that with the sometimes overpowering smell and I ahve to knock off two stars. If you like Lush soaps then I reckon you should try this one but there are so many better ones from this range that I would recommenend trying first.
