      Sweet as honey - but a bit too goody goody!

      Lush is one store that is delightful to the senses and once we've entered, myself (and my fella for that matter) can laze away a good few minutes of shopping time prodding, stroking and smelling the lovely goodies on offer.
      Out of all the delicious soaps on offer, piled high in colourful blocks of glorious fragrance, I have to say this one is well - a bit boring.
      It looks like a lovely chunk of honey, all golden with little honeycombs fashioned into the crust and you buy it in chunks, the soap is quite creamy so along with your bar, make sure you've got something substantial to rest it on once you get it home because a dainty little soap dish might not be big enough.
      Honey I washed the Kids is a mild soap which is suitable for young skins and children may well like getting washed with what looks like a lump of honeycomb so this may be a result in itself. It contains soothing honey and you can smell this, along with a hint of creamy caramel in the soap as you use it.
      Yes this is a pleasant soap to use, it hasn't ever made me feel itchy or blotchy and it leaves skin soft with a very soft and pretty toffee scent. My only problem with it is that it is competing against much more 'out there' soaps tugging for my attention. For a safe bet if you are buying for a friend as part of a gift and aren't sure of their preferences, I would say go for this one. it is inoffensive, mild and has a bit of novelty value in its appearance -it's not that exciting but it's not likely to be left gathering dust in the bathroom cabinet either.

      Soap - Honey I Washed The Kids

      LUSH sells a lot of different and incredibly unique soaps and bath bombs. Honey I Washed The Kids is one of the most popular soaps from LUSH. Think this would be great as your first LUSH product if you have not tried anything from there yet. You get a pretty big chunk of soap and is beautifully designed which helps it to stand out. I think the price is very reasonable because although it is just soap, it has a unique look and scent to it. You are best to cut your soap into chunks as you use it because otherwise you will end up wasting a lot of the product. This soap lasts me a really long time which is one thing I love. The scent is very refreshing, it smells like honey as the top of the soap is honeycomb. The ingredients in this are all natural which makes me feel great about using it as I know it will not dry out my skin or cause any irritations.
      When I started using the slice which I have I took it in the shower to rub it straight on my body but it did not really lather at first, however it was very creamy so I used it to shave. When I rubbed the soap on a shower body sponge it lathered up really good. This is great for shaving because the creamy texture works like a shaving foam/cream. The smell isn't too overpowering and it makes me feel really clean after using it. I would recommend this to anybody that likes nice smelling and unique soap.

      Soap with a twist

      The honey I washed the kids soap is a small bar with a buttery texture formed and designed to look like a block of honey which is brilliant. Although slightly over priced like most Lush products are this product is worth every penny, Can't complain about one thing.

      The scent of this honey bar is of course honey with a slight smell of caramel, a sweet strong tasty smell. I wanted to eat this product it smelt brilliant.. and this is from someone who is fussy with scents. I was 100 % happy with the product. The smell was long lasting on the skin after use and left the skin soft and clean. You get quite a lot of use from one bar although my advice is to keep the bar in a container after using it as it tends to melt away quickly with it's buttery texture. It doesn't try out your skin like most soap bars and runs over your skin easy. It's creamy and moisturising and such a indulgent product, great for gifts. You can buy all different sizes of this soap, I chose to buy a smaller size and just took chunks up into the bath with me at one time so it lasted longer.

      Only thing I can complain about is the price.. if your one to buy this product over and over then it's going to be on the pricey side. My favourite soap due to the lovely honey, caramel, milky smell and soft texture that doesn't leave marks or slimy trails on your body after wards.

      beautiful product with a great smell. Thumbs up!

      Great soap

      I used to run like the wind away from a LUSH store because of the strong scent, you can smell it from meters away. But since I stepped in for the first time for the shampoo bars, I have fallen in love with their products, and this is the first soap I have ever purchased from them. The scent is honey, caramel and maybe milk? It reminds me of caramel custard I had as a kid, and makes showers a lot more enjoyable. Can't think of a better way to relax and unwind at the end of a long day than to have a nice hot shower with a sweet smelling soap and then go to bed. Even my boyfriend really likes this soap, but he can't use it on the sly because I would smell it if he tried! It lathers up alright, it's creamy and quite moisturising, just an indulgence to the senses. It melts really fast if you keep it in the shower, so I cut decent size pieces at a time to use and store the rest in my undies drawer along with my BIG solid conditioner to keep it smelling nice. Love it! Dem smells. It's too good. I love all things honey, and this is just yummy. I use it at the beginning of my shower because it makes me happy, and then again at the end of my shower just to have one last whiff. Sure, its way overpriced for what it is, but that doesn't stop be from buying. Its hard to pick a favorite Lush soap, but Honey I Washed the Kids is probably it. Most recently I bought this in Perth Australia and the SA told me the honey used to make is local from Western Australia. Currently debating how much I want to haul back with me in my suitcase. Why is soap so heavy? :p

      Advantages

      • "Smells yummy"

      Disadvantages

      Almost good enough to eat!

      I bought some of this soap about a year ago having read a connections review about it on here, I decided to check it out and it smelt delicious so when I next needed some soap I treated myself to some.

      The Product ....

      The product is a soap that smells more like a sticky toffee pudding to me than honey but it smells so yummy you have to remind yourself that it is soap not food.

      The soap is cut to size in store so varies in size and shape, however the soap is a beige colour with a honeycomb section surrounding it, I have to admit I am not sure what the use of the honeycomb part is but I use it as a body scrub when I am too lazy to get my jar open.

      The soap lathers up nicely, its not too foamy but does give a nice coverage for washing the skin. The scent from the soap transfers to the skin so you best like the scent if you buy it, the downside is that I find myself smelling my arm when I have just got out of the bath! The soap is actually nicely moisturising, I rarely need a moisturiser for my skin after using this.

      The cost ....

      This soap costs £3.40 per 100g and is available from Lush stores or Lush.co.uk online

      Summary ....

      A really nice gentle soap that is meant to be honey but reminds me very much of sticky toffee pudding, its very sweet but yummy. The soap has never caused any issues on my skin and always makes my skin feel soft and clean after use.

      Honey I washed the kids soap

      WHAT IS IT?

      Soap that is made by Lush. It has got a very high perfume but it is gentle also and can be used to wash children without it making their skins dry.

      HOW DO YOU USE IT?

      You use this like any other soap that you have got. You wet your hands or face and use the soap like normal.

      WHAT I THINK

      I have used this soap for many years because I think it has got a beautiful smell and it makes my hands feel clean also. It smells like honey and toffee and I think it is so beautiful. I have used it on my face and it does not make my skin dry but because of the smell is so sweet I do not like to use it on my face very often because I think the smell lingers too much.

      It has got many ingredients in that are natural and many that are not natural also but those ones are safe synthetics and that is not an ideal I do not think but the ingredients list is still alot better than other soaps.

      The soap does not lather very much but I do not care about that. I do not like the sharp edges that are on the soap but that is because it is cut from a very big block in the size that you would like, it takes a long time for me to make the edges rounder so that the soap is easier to hold when I am washing.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      You ask for what amount of soap you would like and some one in Lush will cut it for you. It costs £3.40 for every 100g but the soap lasts for a very long time so I do not care that it is so expensive because it works good and smells beautiful.

      5 Dooyoo Stars.

      Yes, the kids are washed

      I love Honey I washed the Kids soap from Lush. I love so many of their soaps in fact, but this one has to be my all time favourite. It lathers like a dream, it lasts for ages and ages and the fragrance is to die for. It smells to me like a combination of hot toffee combined with vanilla. It might sound like a sickly combination but in actual fact it really isn''t. The other thing i really love about this soap (as well as the fact that it makes the bathroom smell so lovely) is the fact that it is really very mild and gentle on the skin. My daughter suffers from eczema but even she is able to use this particular soap freely without any adverse effects. I do feel that it is a soap which is suitable for use by the whole family. I love the fact that the fragrance lingers on my skin for ages after I have used it and it doesn''t dry my skin out but actually makes it feel softer and more hydrated. All in all, the perfect soap in my book and one which I very highly recommend.

      A lovely present, thanks Nick!

      One of my boyfriend's friends unexpectedly bought me a Christmas present, which was very kind of him. He bought me a load of soaps from Lush, as he'd seen I had a few Lush products in my bathroom. I thought this was very perceptive for a long term bachelor!

      One of the soaps was Honey I Washed the Kids. The soap is quite a small one, but I've seen the big slabs in my local store so no doubt this was cut off a much bigger block. The soap came wrapped in some Lush printed paper with a sticker with the name on and some other details... which unfortunately I couldn't read as the writing had all rubbed off.

      The soap is a creamy beige colour, and I was immediately struck by how creamy it looked. If anything it looked more like one of Lush's massage bars rather than a soap! The second thing that hit me was the smell. You know how you walk past Lush and the smell of the shop hits you, but then each individual product has it's own smell? This soap just smells like Lush. It smells more like Lush than Lush itself.

      The scent is honey and toffee, and apparently matches other Lush products (Honey Bee bath bomb and It's Raining Men shower gel) According to the Lush website this soap also contains 'sweet wild orange and bergamot oils as well as the soothing properties of aloe vera gel.' Personally it was mostly the honey that I could smell. This scent is very sweet, so it's not for everybody but I really like it.

      I've mostly used this in the bath, I rub the entire bar over my body but if that's too strong you can also get a lather between your hands and rub over your body. The soap comes away gradually and builds a white-ish layer of product with the water which you can use to wash yourself. As the product is dispersed the smell gets even stronger, and my whole bathroom smells sweet!

      After using this soap, my skin feels fairly normal, maybe a little bit dryer than when using shower gel but I wouldn't describe it as dry. The smell lingers for a while, I'm currently using a Soap and Glory moisturiser so that masks the smell, but I'm sure Lush will have a similar massage bar if you want to use that as a moisturiser and add an extra layer to the smell. I do feel that there is a small amount of residue after using this, but it feels moisturising rather than oily.

      I'm not usually a soap person, but I do like Honey I Washed the Kids. It smells lovely and it's not hard or drying. Lush claim that it is soft enough to use on children - I don't have any so I can't vouch for this! The product is a little sticky after use, I just leave it on the side of the bath and it dries out but it does leave a bit of residue on the side. However it's easily wiped off so no big deal.

      At £3.40 for 100g this is not the cheapest product, however it washes nicely and smells divine. I don't think I'd buy it for myself, but as a gift it was really nice to receive and I'm really happy to continue using this product!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A rich honey & toffee-fragranced soap that cleans well & leaves your skin feeling soft & smooth

        On my first foray into the Doncaster Lush store, I bought two chunks of soap, one of which I have already reviewed. The second one was Honey I Wash the Kids. There were two main reasons why I bought this - firstly the smell, and secondly the assistant said it would leave my skin feeling soft. I have to say that I like all things that either smell of or taste of honey and I was immediately drawn to this soap.

        APPEARANCE:-

        The soap is two-toned in colour - the majority is a creamy yellow but it has a honeycomb-patterned, dark toffee colour on the top. The most noticeable feature of this soap is the smell - it's strong. Having said that, it's not too overpowering provided that you like the smell of honey and toffee, but it will fill your bathroom with the fragrance and the aroma stays on your body for a few hours. It's not particularly sickly, but it is a rich and sweet smell and I do personally like this. Lush make their own honey water by blending honey, tincture of benzoin (this turns the water milky) and rose oil diluted in water. I cannot make out the smell of the rose oil, though, and by far the strongest fragrance is that of honey and toffee.

        MY EXPERIENCE USING THE SOAP:-

        The soap produces a nice thick, rich lather and it does leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. I've used the honeycomb part of the soap as a kind of exfoliator as it is a little rougher than the rest of the bar (I'm not sure if it's made for this purpose of not, but it does do quite an effective job). I've used this bar of soap for about 6 weeks now and I've got through probably a quarter of it (it weighed a little more than 100g) so it's going to last a long time. I do make sure that I don't leave the soap in water for any length of time, though, and it's always stored on a ceramic soap dish. I've used the soap by firstly creating a lather in the palms of my hands and applying it to my face and body, and also by rubbing the soap directly on my skin and then creating a lather with my hands. Both methods seem to be equally as effective.

        BUMBLE BEES:-

        Returning to the smell of this soap, a curious thing has been happening during the hot weather. Every morning for about a week we've got up to find a bumble bee in the bathroom. This has never happened before and we couldn't work out why they were appearing in the bathroom or what was attracting them. Because of the hot weather, the landing window has been open a lot and one morning I actually saw a bee fly in and crawl under the small gap under the bathroom door. So the question as to how they were getting in was solved, but why? Then I suddenly thought about the soap and the smell of it. As an experiment I put it in one of the bathroom cabinets and from that day there were no more bees in the bathroom - until yesterday. I had used the soap the previous evening and left it out, so I've come to the conclusion that the smell of the soap must be attracting the bees for some reason.

        INGREDIENTS:-

        Lush make a big thing of using natural ingredients in their products and their ethical business values, and so I think it's important to list the ingredients. Their products are not entirely natural, although they do use a lot less chemicals than other so-called 'green' companies. The soap is individually wrapped when you buy it from the shop, and doesn't have a list of ingredients, so this is taken from their website:-

        Natural Ingredients:-

        Honey Water, Rapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, Water, Perfume, Beeswax, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Bergamot Oil, Aloe Vera Extract, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract, Titanium Dioxide, *Limonene, *Linalool

        Safe Synthetics:-

        Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Hydroxide, EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Benzyl Benzoate

        (*occurs naturally in essential oils)

        It's interesting to compare this with another well-known 'ethical' brand (this is taken from their website for a chocolate scented soap):-

        Sodium Palmate (Surfactant), Sodium Palm Kernelate (Surfactant), Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Glycerin (Humectant), Parfum (Fragrance), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Glycine Soja Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Etidronic Acid (Chelating Agent), Tetrasodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Coumarin (Fragrance Ingredient), Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Fragrance Ingredient), Anisyl Alcohol (Fragrance Ingredient), CI 77891 (Colour)

        Although I'm no scientific expert, it appears that the Lush soap is the more natural of the two, even though it does include some chemicals.

        PRICE AND AVAILABILITY:-

        The soap can be bought from Lush stores which can be found in most large towns, cities and shopping malls, and from their website. An assistant will cut a chunk of soap for you in store, whereas the website offers three sizes - 100g at £3.40, 250g at £8.50 and 500g at £17.00.

        CONCLUSION:-

        I personally would recommend this soap as it cleans and softens and has a great aroma if you like the smell of honey and toffee. The fragrance will fill your bathroom and will stay on your skin for a long time and as such may not be suitable for some men. I also like the exfoliating action of the honeycomb crust which makes the soap even more special. It doesn't exclusively contain natural ingredients, but there are fewer chemicals and parabens than many other brands.

        Thank you for reading my review and I hope you found it useful.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great soap for kids and big kids alike

          I am a huge Lush fan and one of my favourite soaps has to be Honey I washed the kids. It can be brought either from Lush shops or online and costs £3.40 for 100g. It can also be brought in larger sizes.

          It smells so good- a powerful mix of honey and toffee. It smells like the perfect desert and to me it even looks like a chunk of cake with gooey toffee sauce topping. It is the type of soap you most definetely do not want to share! Despite the sweet smell it is not sickly. Lush also do a bath bomb -Honey Bee with the same scent.

          It lathers up beautifully and a bar of this would last really well especially if I didn't feel the need to use it constantly. I love to wash my hands with this as the smell lingers on the skin and you catch beautiful whiffs whilst going about your day. For a real treat though using this all over is a must. The smell whilst strong on the bar is much milder on the skin, and really is lovely. I never wear perfume if I have washed with this. It leaves my skin clean and soft.

          There are two downsides... the smell always makes me fancy a gooey desert... and running out of this soap would be devastating so you may need to stockpile.

          It really is a gorgeous soap and I highly recomment especially if like me you have a sweet tooth and want to smell good enough to eat.

          I imagine children would love to wash with this but Ive never been generous enough to share mine!

            a lovely honey soap from Lush

            I don't normally buy blocks of soap as I favour liquid soap and liquid shower washes. I was however, pleased to receive two Lush gift sets at Christmas and included in one set was a star shaped block of 'Honey I Washed The Kids'.

            ~The Soap~

            'To bee, or not to bee'

            Lush do not test their products on animals and try to use many natural ingredients. This particular soap is popular with Lush customers and has been around for quite some time. It is free from preservatives and is vegetarian friendly. If you are a fan of this soap, you may also like 'Honey Bee Bath Bomb' as this has the same honey/toffee scent. 'It's Raining Men Shower Gel' is also similar.

            The main ingredient in this soap is honey water. Other ingredients include rapeseed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, bergamot oil, sweet wild orange oil and aloe vera extract. A full ingredients list is available from www.lush.co.uk.

            Every piece of this soap is likely to be different in appearance. Instore, the whole block is cream on the bottom and brown at the top. The soap will come neatly wrapped and dated. This soap may come in different shapes if received as part of a gift set and won't be wrapped.

            ~Price and Availability~

            Honey I Washed The Kids soap is available from www.lush.co.uk and instore. It is available in three different sizes :

            *100g - £3.40
            *250g - £8.50
            *500g - £17.00

            A gift set including various honey scented products is available priced at £19.95.

            ~My Thoughts~

            I adore the smell of most Lush products and whilst this particular soap isn't one I would have bought based on the scent, I was more than happy to receive it as a gift. My soap is a large star shape and came in a Christmas gift set alongside Cinders bath ballistic. I would say that this is one of the plainer looking soaps that Lush offer but appearance isn't everything.

            The solid bar of soap has a mild, sweet scent which is quite pleasant. I find the scent to be more appealing and less sickly than It's Raining Men shower gel. It is less concentrated and in turn, is much nicer for me to use personally. I found the star shaped soap fairly easy to work with once I had used it a few times. The edges were a little too neat at first which made washing with it a bit uncomfortable. The soap itself is of a decent quality and doesn't turn to mush or become overly messy when in contact with water.

            I find regular soaps to be quite drying to my sensitive skin but Lush soaps are much nicer to use. I mainly use this soap in the shower. I find that this soap gives off a lovely, lightweight and creamy lather. It doesn't feel overly indulgent but it does have a pleasant feel to it and is nicely cleansing against my sensitive skin. The scent offered by this soap is quite strong but not sickly sweet. The honey aroma is evident but I notice a sweet, syrupy toffee aroma mostly and it is absolutely gorgeous.

            My skin is left feeling clean and refreshed after using this soap. A sweet scent transfers and lingers for a short while at a subtle level. I do find that whilst my skin is left feeling quite soft and definitely not dried out, it doesn't feel moisturised very much. I have tried using this soap as a hand soap too but like other Lush soaps, I find it leaves my hands feeling weird. I'm quite funny about soaps and whilst I love lathering them up in my hands, I hate the way they leave my hands once rinsed. It kind of freaks me out in a way so I normally give my hands a rinse with liquid hand wash after showering using this soap! Yes I am weird!

            ~Conclusion~

            I have used this soap quite a lot and it has lasted well. I don't feel the need to use a lot to cleanse my skin and one bar seems to shrink at quite a slow pace compared to regular soaps. I quite like this soap as it has a pleasant smell and feels creamy against my skin. It is very gentle too and I have experienced no irritation from using it. My son has tried it out too as he loves Lush products and likes it. It isn't the best Lush soap that I have tried though and I will award it four stars. I do find it to be expensive for what it is.

            Thanks for reading :)

              Good as a gift for females

              This product is a handmade soap by a company called Lush. As far as I am aware, you can only buy these in a shop, and you pay by the kg. They are not "preformed", basically in the shop they have a massive slab of the stuff, and you simply ask the assistant how much you want, and whether you want it wrapped in a special scarf or not.

              Anyway, Lush is one of these fair-trade hand made cosmetic shops with all natural ingredients and the like. Also, their products are of very high quality, and a combination of both of these factors results in this soap costing... well a lot. I can't remember how much exactly, but its around £5-£6 per 100grams or something like that? Basically I went in last mothers day and left with 2 "bars" of soap, two small shampoos (about 100ml), and it cost around £15. Pricey stuff, so it better be good!

              Thankfully it really is. This flavour is a sort of honey flavour, and just looking at it visually, it really does look quite unique and special. Not like the generic soaps you buy in tescos, but something that seems a bit special.

              It smells of a sort of honey esque flavour, but I personally though it has a sort of fruity tangy twist that I couldn't quite identify hidden away in it. However my mother (who I bought if for) disagreed.

              My mom refused to use it for ages because, and I quote "its just too nice". She initially just used it to wrap in clothes, or to keep in the toilet to freshen it up and stuff like that. It just smells that nice, and is very pungent, and keeps its smell well.

              Eventually, once she did started washing with it, she commented how it felt like it was "really good for her skin". I am no expert in these matters being male myself, but apparently honey is good for your skin?

              Anyway, overall then, to summaries and rate this product.

              Its one expensive piece of soap, and I would never consider this as a day to day purchase, it is just way to expensive for that. However, as a one off, to someone special, or maybe to really treat yourself if soap is your thing, then this stuff is pretty good. And I personally think that it is quite unique, because the way it presents, and its not covered in cheapish plastic, or in some "gift box", but for a few quid extra (think its about £2), they wrap it up in a silk scarf, which I think is a nice touch.

              Basically, this is the shop I go to if buying anything for females, they just go crazy for all the smells, and handmade, fair trade etc etc. But for me personally, its not something I would buy for myself. Therefore I give this 4/5.

              Disadvantages

              A super sweet smelling soap

              I love shopping in Lush and although soap might seem a bit boring, Lush always try their best to make it more interesting! I seem to have amassed several pieces of Honey I Washed The Kids soap from various goody bags and gift sets. It is available from the Lush high street stores, via mail order, or online at www.lush.com. The blocks come in several size options: £3.40 for a 100g block, £8.50 for a 250g block, and £17.00 for a 500g block.

              Product description: "You can wash the kids in this if you want, but make sure you get your share of this honey toffee-scented addictive soap! Don't blame us if a fight breaks out over it - buy several to avoid family rifts. The family that washes together stays together."

              Seeing as it's quite a mouthful, I'm going to refer to this soap as HIWTK from now on. The HIWTK soap is quite plain to look at and doesn't seem so impressive compared against some of the fancier, more decorative soaps that Lush have on offer. It has a plain honey toned golden brown colour, with a darker layer topping it off. My 100g blocks are cut into flat rectangular sections which do not include the top layer, so this makes them appear even more plain looking.

              The thing that makes this soap so amazing is the super strong scent. It has a rich, sticky sweet smell which does smell very much like honey with an even sweeter scent than the natural stuff. It is very notiecable and the scent spreads around my bathroom when this is just sat in my soap dish, and it also leaves the fragrance behind on my skin after I've washed my hands with it. Personally this is one of my all-time favourite scented beauty products and I would recommend HIWTK based on the scent alone!

              This soap has a nice texture and it feels quite gentle to use. It creates a nice light amount of foam which is enough to cleanse the hands when needed. I only ever use bar soap to wash my hands as I prefer other products for cleansing my body. I find that there is a slight negative to this product, and that is that it can be a little on the drying side if I'm having to use it frequently. I make sure to follow up with applying a hand lotion afterwards, particularly in this cold weather.

              A 100g block of this soap lasts me for around 2 and a half months. Because of the shape of the bar, it is easy to get a good grip on when washing, but it also ends up turning into quite a thin strip when I get near to finishing it up. Once the bar starts to thin out too much it becomes very fragile and breaks down into loads of tiny little fragments which are impossible to use. This is a bit annoying as these pieces end up having to be thrown away and are wasted.

              Overall, I'd definitely recommend giving HIWTK a try, if only for the sensual scent experience. It's a lovely soap to use and one of my favourite things from Lush.

                A good solution to dry skin problems

                When I first started buying Lush one of the things I always heard people raving about was this soap. I had a lot of recommendations to try it. I've since bought it numerous times and received it in gift boxes.

                Lush say - 'You can wash the kids in this if you want, but make sure you get your share of this honey toffee-scented addictive soap! Don't blame us if a fight breaks out over it - buy several to avoid family rifts. The family that washes together stays together.

                This was one of our best-selling soaps in our previous company, Cosmetics To Go. We had to bring it back because we couldn't live without it! '


                This soap contains a lot of skin conditioning ingredients like honey water, rapeseed and coconut oils, beeswax and sweet orange oil. The ingredients give it a very subtle scent that is somewhat sweet but fresh at the same time. It isn't too sickly. It has the same scent as the Honey Bee bath ballistic and It's Raining Men shower gel but much more lighter.

                I currently have a wedge of this at my bathroom sink. I suffer from dermatitis so I have to be careful with using things that dry the skin out as it causes the skin to crack and bleed and it becomes horribly painful. This leaves my skin really smooth and supple and has since ceased me to have any skin problems. I can see why this has become a cult favourite.

                It's £3.25 for 100g. You can pick this up freshly made in any Lush store you can select how little or how much you want to purchase. I find that a small wedge last me a substantial amount of time. Definetly worth picking up if you suffer from dry skin.
