BATH & BODY: Lush, Honey I Washed the Kids Soap

What is it? Block soap that can be purchased in any size you wish, made with honey water, aloe vera, beeswax, gardenia extract, bergamot oil and sweet orange oil.

Why should I buy it? Not only does it (subtly) smell great, but the beeswax on the top of the soap works great for exfoliation. You can cutomize the size you buy, like choosing a slice from a wheel of cheese.Where can I buy it? ex. $7.15 for 3.5 oz block at any Lush store near you; Ebay

The Bottom Line: Though a tad on the pricey side, the soaps are my favorite products from Lush. The Honey soap has a wonderful aroma, and though it doesn't really scent the skin, it sure
did scent my shower! The combination of oils left my skin feeling moisturized. I liked it so much I bought a second bar!

I love honey in any soap - it restricts lather in real handmade soap but the quality it imparts is wonderful and I'll happily forgo the bubbles.

I don't like Sodium Lauryl sulphate in anything so a big black spot for Lush with this one!

Real honey doesnt impart any scent however, so any honey fragrance has to be synthetic.

As a bee keeper I find it fascinating that honey in toiletries doesn't aid sales - its not as popular as you might think.

heather - wow, wonderful comments, thanks so much! I have to agree about Sodium Lauryl sulphate and don't find that Lush's products are all they're made out to be.
