Scent-sational soaps!

Hi Girlies, welcome to another post in my ‘Lush and I’ series!

As you know I was very disappointed with Lush when I tried the soap, Vanilla In The Mist. Well, I think consolation is required and I’m very tempted to pop in to Lush this weekend and get some. It may just be time to repurchase two of the most super-duper, amazingly gorgeous soaps in the whole wide world.

I guess you are all wondering which soaps have earnt such a great accolade.

I doubt that the first will be a big surprise. Tra la lah, it is ‘Honey I Washed The kids’. This soap has a huge following. It was my very, first Lush soap in five plus years. I was not very excited about it as I have never had a thing for soaps. I only brought this one because everybody else is so excited by it and I had some gift value left to spend and wowee, what a lucky random buy it turned out to be!


This soap looks lovely, it smells gorgeous and feels fabulous to wash with. This caramel gives off the most beautiful scent and is very moisturising especially as the soap breaks down and the soap almost starts to liquidfy and ooze. Meanwhile the outer crust is very useful for gentle exfoliation. I adore this soap and can assure you that I will be buying it again and again.

Now the second soap was not one I expected to fall for.

Firstly, it was not ‘Honey I Washed The Kids’ which I had already discovered and had just finished, leaving me feeling so, soo, soap abandoned (a wretched emotion that I had never experienced before).

Secondly, I’m not a big fan of currents, raisins and sultanas so why would I like a soap, that I had never even heard of, called ‘Sultana of Soap’?!


Well, for several reasons actually!

Firstly, it smells beautiful. While ‘Honey I Washed The Kids’ smells gorgeous and fabulous. ‘Sultana of Soap’ is more subtle but is just unmistakenly so, soo, pretttyyy and I felt gives out faint hints of springtime blossoms and sweet, sweet sweeties. It could be a classic!

Secondly, this princess of a bar glides effortlessly along the skin.

Thirdly, my svelte little tiny bar seems to be lasting for ages.

I don’t think this soap is very well-known but please Girls, next time you are in Lush, have a sniff and maybe get a small little sample. I’m pretty sure you won’t regret it!

And one more thing you might not regret is taking a peek at BeautyMarked19. Sophie is having the most amazing giveaway to celebrate reaching 500 followers. The prize includes perfume, MAC, Gosh and more.

Also, Legs Eleven7 is having a giveaway with some mighty fine little treats making up the winners stash. Such pretty colours. You can have a look at her very popular blog and enter here.

Right Treacles, I’m off sniff to some perfumes. I think I owe you a perfume review or two. I hope you are all ok and making some exxxxciting plans for the weekend. Don’t forget to keep commenting, subscribing, tweeting and feel free to spread/tweet the word. This mighty mission of mine can never have too many followers or too much advice.
