Lush is a company known for it’s all natural body and skin care products in an almost overwhelming array of varieties, scents and flavors. For the holidays, I received the Honey I Washed the Kids soap.
The scent was a bit strong at first, and very sweet. But it was nice to walk into the bathroom and have the whole place smell fresh and herbal. The soap was incredibly sudsy and it left my skin soft, lightly scented and smooth. However, after only a week, the bar had dwindled to nothing. And at the prices charged (a 3.5 oz bar retails for $7.95 USD at Lush’s website) that would translate to roughly $32 per month, not even including shipping if you ordered online. Huh. Ugh.
The Lush soap bar was not as amazing as Herbaria’s Soaps, but it’s worth a second look if you like “somewhat” natural products (see the ingredients list below for what I mean). Neither Lush nor Herbaria test their products on animals.
