So whilst having a browse on their website the other day I thought I'd give a few new things a go! Normally I'm a shower gel kinda girl but I thought that I'd branch out & try a few LUSH soaps, that's what they're most well-known for after all! I also thought that soap would last a lot longer than the normal gone-in-a-week gel forms. After a lot of scrolling up & down the soap section & investigating each & every one! (yes I do like to be thorough!) I finally decided on Honey I Washed The Kids (£3.40 for 100g) & Porridge (£2.95 for 100g).
|Left Honey I Washed The Kids, Right Porridge|
When I first opened Porridge I have to admit I was a little taken aback by the smell. It smelt almost plastic-y & very strongly too, not at all like it was described in some of the reviews I'd read, which told it smelt of sweet oaty porridge, something which I was very much looking forward to. That aside I decided not to let it put me off & popped it in the shower with me. Porridge really does look like a lump of porridge, a grey-ish colour full of oats, the secret wonder ingredient in this soap! It lathered really well & the oats exfoliated my skin amazingly! Great for shaving your legs or buffing away stubborn dry skin! Once in the shower the smell wasn't as over-powering as I'd first thought, which is good as this is now my no.1 soap! I didn't even need a moisturiser after I'd used this as it really made my skin buttery-smooth. Highly recommend it for you lovelies who like to get a little more than just cleanliness out of your soap!

I then thought I'd try my first ever bubble bar! (exciting stuff I know!) There were so many interesting bubble bars, all of which were beautifully made & offered a different bath time experience! (some were great for relaxing whilst others claim to invigorate!) I eventually settled on Creamy Candy (although I wanted them all!) Creamy Candy (£2.50 each) is described as the perfect bubble bar for a girly night in. It is one of the cutest LUSH products I've seen, a small pink bar with a pretty little flower sitting on top, great for all you girly girls, or if you're looking for a gift for a younger relative! As this was my first bubble bar I wanted to get more than one use out of it, so decided to break it in half. I had read somewhere that putting it in an old stocking or pair of tights & wrapping them around the tap as your bath fills up helps to create loads more bubbles, so me being the try-everything-once girl that I am thought I'd give this a go! It worked like a dream & my bath was soon full of lots of sweet-smelling bubbles! I'd heard that it's also meant to make the bubbles pink, however mine were white. This is the perfect bubble bar for you if you're a fan of sweet candy-floss scents & feeling like a little kid again. It really reminded me of cherry Panda Pops, a fizzy drink I used to have as a little girl & this brought back lots of lovely memories for me! The bubbles lasted about 30 minutes, so this is great if you like your baths long! Once out of the bath my skin was silky smooth & smelt lovely! Would definitely repurchase!
