Lush Porridge Soap
I would like to start off by saying how much I love Lush. As a concept, brand, store...everything about them is just, well...lush! I am not overly taken with the organic craze or anything, but I do like to think that the more natural ingredients in a product, the better it will be for my skin. I wouldn't say I have overly sensitive skin, but some ingredients are too harsh and cause me to breakout or have dry patches. Hence of late I have been trying more and more products from the likes of Lush and The Body Shop. Both of these stores are ridiculously generous with samples...I guess it depends which stores you go to, some may have nicer staff than others, I'm lucky to have the friendliest people working in my locals! Every time I go to Lush I always get samples, or they are giving away freebies...last time I went in for my Tea Tree Water Toner, which was all I paid for, but I came out with a Ma Bar, sample of Vanishing Cream and a real fruit smoothie! Customer service, when it's good, leaves a big impression on me, and I'll always go back for me! On with the review...
What Do I Think?
For anyone who is not familiar with Lush and their infamous soaps they are basically freshly made, come in HUGE chunks and you can decide how much/little you want to purchase. I have had my fairly large chunk of Porridge Soap for about 4/5 months I think, and it's still going strong! This particular soap has a creamy consistency which give it really moisturising qualities, and it is perfect for exfoliating because it contains real porridge oats all the way through. This soap also contains real orange juice, so it has an extra fruity edge, even better for the mornings! It smells A.M.A.zing :) If I could eat this soap, trust me I would! The Lush website describe this soap as "the very best way to start the day: a helping of porridge oats with lashings of delicious molasses. Ideal for sensitive skin; irresistible to everyone else".
Where Is It Available?
Lush is available nationwide, instore and online...and is WELL worth a visit! You get used to the strong scents soon enough :)
How Much Will It Cost?
The Lush website states £2.56, but I'm not sure what quantity this is referring to. The larger the chunk of soap, the more expensive it will be I guess!
Would I Recommend It?
Indeed I would :) I really do love this product, and not just because I'm an exfoliating addict! Using this means if I'm in a rush I can skip body moisturising, and extra time in the mornings is never a bad thing! This makes me want to try each and every one of the Lush soaps...better get cracking ;)
