This is the full review:
Product / Quality:
Lush Honey I Washed the Kids soap is a really creamy and gentle soap that the whole family can use. In the store you can see it as a big round soap with frilly edges, creamy beige base and toffee top with honeycomb. Depending on how it’s cut, you can get your bar in a rectangular shape or with the wavy edge. But no mater what shape your bar is, it’ll always have the honeycomb top which looks amazing.
The quality of the soap is really good. Lush Honey I Washed the Kids soap is not one of those soaps that makes the skin too squeaky clean, it just leaves the skin clean without drying it too much. It’s really creamy, it lathers well and makes a wonderful foam if you use it with a loofah or a bath sponge. The only downside with the creamy soaps is that they melt quite easily, so you need to keep your soap in a nice and dry place so it can last you longer.
There are many words that can describe the scent of Lush Honey I Washed the Kids soap, but the main one is: Delicious. And we’re not kidding, the soap smells good enough to eat (but don’t eat it!). It smells like toffee caramel mixed with milk and honey. And actually, the scent is probably the main thing that makes many people to buy it over and over again. Because it has a sweet smell, the scent will linger on your skin for probably a couple of hours after you take a bath or shower. If you use sweet perfumes that have vanilla as a main note, then this soap won’t overpower it, but it’ll complement your perfume beautifully.
If you like really sweet and sugary scents, then you should really try the Lush Honey I Washed the Kids soap first. This soap is also great for people who are new to Lush products, especially for those who like caramel and honey scents.
