Ohhh Honey, Look What I Have Done! I Washed The Kids!
No, I do not have kids and I am not even married yet. It is just that I watched 'Honey, I Blew The Kids' last week and I do not remember feeling that great after watching any movie. [More than the movie, I was happy because it brought back the memories of watching 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids'. The first English movie of my life. Dad rented the video for me. I still remember the scene with colorful fruit loop and the rescue by ant. How time flies...]. And right after the movie finished, I realized I haven't told you about the nice sweet smelling soap from Lush. You know the smell around Lush shops, the sweet unavoidable smell. I am sure this one contributes a lot to that wonderful smell.
Presenting - Lush Honey I Washed The Kids Soap
I always cut my small in small pieces before using to make the smell last long. Even the product melts less when they are in smaller pieces (or this is what I opt to believe).
I got this as a sample to try. I loved the smell so, I just wanted to keep it forever. I kept the soap in paper wrap in my makeup drawer. After that, each time I open the drawer, the tempting smell make me sniff it. It is sweet like honey and caramel but there is orange oil to make sure it’s not overly sweet. This is undoubtedly one of the best smelling soap.
Each soap is cut out of the big bar with a part of the honeycomb imprint wax. The wax is supposed to do the exfoliation maybe but I am yet to see its effect on me. It starts to fall off as the soap starts to melt. It’s tough like hard plastic. Surely, when I repurchase this, I will ask the sales assistant to cut that part. When you buying based on weight, why get something you will never use?
Price 380 INR for 100 gm

- It has a creamy lather. It means that though it has SLS, the amount is less and/or it has other moisturizing ingredients
- Sweet candy/toffee/honey/caramel smell. It’s light and yet lasts for an hour or two on skin.
- These caramel smells are great for winter in general but as this one is light so, can be used year round.
- Great soap for sensitive dry skin. No stretchy feeling after use.
- Expensive like all Lush products
- I have no idea what that layer of waxy thing is supposed to it. It just starts to fall off the moment you use the soap. It feels like plastic. It does not even help in exfoliation. Maybe it is there just to make it look great.
- Really doubt if it contains any honey. Could not spot it on the ingredients list.
- Loads of nasty chemicals but then it’s not natural but handmade. Go figure!
Overall - I love this soap a lot. The smell does it magic on me. If I repurchase then it will just because of the smell. Its gently for dry skin.
Do I recommend? I will recommend if you are okay to spend that much for a soap. It is certainly worth it because it is mild for sensitive dry skin and has a wonderful smell that does transfer to skin. But, if you are not okay with spending that much for soap then you can skip it. Also, if you do not have very sensitive dry skin then there is no need to run after this product. Nada.
Cheaper Alternatives - If you badly want to try honey flavored bath products then you can try Nourish products. They have a honey bee range. I have not used Nourish but never found bad reviews about them. I will try them and let you know. Then, there are the famous Milk and Honey from Oriflame.
