LUSH Review: Honey I Washed The Kids Soap

Before I get to the review, I'm having a contest!!!! Details HERE!
As a LUSH bestseller, rave reviews online, and my love for the scent of honey, I knew I had to include this is my next LUSH order.

Price/Size:

$7.95 for 3.5 oz. In my opinion, I find LUSH's soaps to be a bit on the expensive side in turns of soap. I can buy a 6 pack of Dove soap for $6.88. In terms of size, a bar of Dove soap is 3.15 oz. So although LUSH's soaps look big online, they are not much larger than a typical bar of soap.

Scent:

The scent of this is hard to explain. When I hear "honey" I assume the product is going to smell like honey, like my Burt's Bees honey Lip Balm (which I can't leave home without), so I was so excited to have that scent linger on my body. WRONG. I really can't pinpoint the scent, it's hard to explain. LUSH claims there are hints of bergamot and orange, but I cannot detect these hints. There is a SLIGHT sweetness to this soap, but then there is just a wierdness about the rest of it. I have come to know many of LUSH's scents smell different once "in use", so I cut off a teeny peice and brought it to my bathroom to wash my hands with it. Again, the smell didnt change. This isnt a scent I care for, but luckily the scent is faint and didn't linger on my hands.

Lather:

This soap did lather more than other soaps by LUSH that I have tried. It did seem to moisturize better than other LUSH soaps as well. Also, the soaps I have tried by LUSH give me that dry/squeaky clean feeling that I HATE, but this soap didnt seem to do that which was good.

Overall:

This is not a soap I will re-purchase. I dont care for the scent much, and for me, LUSH's soaps are overpriced. If you can, definitely go to a LUSH store and smell the soaps before you purchase them if you are able to. Unfortunately for me, I have no LUSH within hundreds of miles.

Til next time!

I wanted to add, if you're finicky about the feel/smells of soaps at LUSH, you can ask them to shave off a little sample for you. The one here in KC has a sink back by the register counter so you can try the bath products in the store before purchasing them. However, all of this only works if there is a store in your area...

The honey is really great for the skin, i usually use it in my face, is really wonderful. After my mask i feel my face smooth and clean. And my boyfriend always notice the difference, he simply love it. I feel more comfortable with my self and he is always with too much energy because he usually buy viagra
