Lush Carrot Soap ReviewSunday, March 30, 2014
Good morning, dear readers! :D
Today I will be reviewing the Lush Carrot Soap, which was every so kindly sent to me for review. :}
This is a limited-edition Easter release, so be sure to check this out before it "leaps away" and is gone!
Here is what Lush has to say about Carrot:
"Softening lemon-blackcurrant sudser
This soap may look like a giant carrot, but it certainly doesn’t smell like one! Instead, we’ve created an energizing, tropical blend of Sicilian lemon oil and fruity buchu oil that’s sure to put some spring in your step. A healthy helping of cocoa butter softens and moisturizes your skin as you wash, and carrot oil lends its nourishing, conditioning qualities to leave your skin feeling smooth, clean and refreshed. A leaping white bunny jumps across each slice as a reminder that all of our products are strictly cruelty-free, and that we continue to fight animal testing."
This soap is wonderful!! :D
It really reminds me a lot of V8 Splash Tropical Blend (a delicious fruity cocktail that also happens to contain carrot) both in colour and in fragrance. :} It smells sooo good!!
While I noticed that this soap is one of their more 'juicy' soaps (like Neon Love) and so does not lather up as well as some of their creamy soaps (like Alkmaar), it still gets the job done well and leaves you feeling quenched.
This retails for $6.95 Can per 100 g, so it is also on the cheaper end of the Lush spectrum (yay!!! :D).
It makes for a sunny and bright bar, and the colour and fragrance are both a delight for the bathroom.
I really like how they incorporated carrot and bunnies in this for Easter. :) I especially love that they put the image of a leaping bunny into the bar, to both remind us of Easter, but also of Lush's commitment to being cruelty-free and the importance of keeping our furry friends from harm. Here is a link to the Leaping Bunny logo for more information.
Overall I am extremely pleased with this soap, and would love to buy more of it! I think it makes for an adorable Easter gift, while being a treat for the senses.
It does leave a bit of fragrance to your skin after using it (which is awesome!), but it is not overwhelming, and the scent doesn't linger for very long, so no worries about perfume clashing! :D
I paired this with the Bunch of Carrots bubble bar in my bath, and my skin felt great! :}
I highly recommend this!! :D
I hope that you have a fantastic weekend, and I'll be back shortly with more Lush reviews!
