Honey + Toffee = Love
I LOVE Lush's Honey I Washed the Kids soap. It smells amazing. AMAZING, I tell you. I would leave it in my bathroom and whenever I stepped in, I would inhale the amazing scent of toffee and honey mixed in together and it was heavenly. Heck, if Lush made a little smelly thing that smelled like Honey I Washed the Kids, I'd buy it in a heartbeat and then place them all over my home, car, etc. The soap lathers well and you feel all sweet and tingly from the scent since it is THAT good. However, the smell from the soap doesn't last long. I would love to smell like honey and toffee all day but with this soap, it isn't possible. And if you leave it in the shower area, the soap tends to decrease in size dramatically especially if it's near water. The first bar of Honey I Washed the Kids disappeared so fast not only from my use but from my novice mistake of leaving it in the shower caddy that hangs under the shower head. I will not be making that mistake again.
As for the moisturizing effect, I wouldn't say that it's superior to any other soap I've used. I wish I could say it's the best of the best but in this category, it's not. But the smell of the soap is the reason why I buy Honey I Washed the Kids. But Lush really needs to find a way to make the smell last on my skin and everyone else's. I recommend this soap to ANYONE who has a weakness for anything that smells sweet and amazing.
i picked up a small bar of this last week to try after hearing all of the hype about it for a while. i smelled it in the store and absolutely loved the scent and i couldn't wait to get it home and try it out. i've found that the scent lasts for quite a while, i have noticed it to be a tiny bit drying, but it's no big deal. Like carlene said, that's what lotion is for! i will definitely be buying more as soon as this bar is gone.
GO TO SOAP
I have been using this soap for years and it never disappoints. I love the rich scent. When used with a loofa it lathers up very richly and makes the bar last much longer. It always leaves me feeling clean and makes my skin super soft. Once I'm out of the shower, the scent doesn't last, which is good because I wouldn't want to smell too strong in public anyway, haha.
Good Enough To Eat!
Officially the most amazing soap I have ever encountered. Its rare I would get so excited over something so small, but those of you who have smelt it, you will be the ones to understand! I am usually heavily allergic to soap in that I have eczma on my hands, but this stuff doesnt aggrevate it in the slightest. I use it for shaving as it lets the razor move smoothly over the skin without nicking. Quick tip ;) xxx
