I surprise myself for reaching for this one almost everytime I take a shower and i have alot of LUSH solid soaps. I usually wash with a hard soap first ( used to be ivory) to get that squeaky clean,,,positive the grime is of me feeling and then I go on to use a shower gel pretty much as a treat. LUSH soaps always make me feel squeaky clean...great for me...bad for some. I always use moisturizer after a shower so dryness isnt really an issue for me. This smells like lemons, honey, creamy toffee, just sooooo good! Here is what I have to add to the 100s of reviews...I find all my soaps last longer when i use them with the shower gloves ( like you get from the body shop) They lather better with them then with a poof or wash cloth without needing a whole lot of soap. I've been using 1/2 of a $20 slice for almost 2 months and like i said this is the soap I use pretty much daily. Hope this helps prolong your LUSH soaps...they are pretty pricey!
Hey guys I just want to let you know that you should not be using something like this on your actual body to bathe. it's not good for your lady hygiene to put actual sugar in certain areas. Feel free to wash your hands with it as much as you want. Just because it was blessed by the hippie fairy doesn't mean it's automatically good for you. Trust.
As many people have said already, the soap smells heavenly if you are a fan of toffee/caramel. There is a very slight scent of honey in it but I guess most people make it out to be toffee or caramel. I find my skin smells lightly of it after using it and for me personally, my skin feels softer and moisturised.
The appearance is fitting for the name and scent with a waxy layer of honeycomb on top. I find the darker bit at the top with the honeycomb doesn't lather up as well as the milky, lighter part of the soap. Also, after the darker bit wears down, the honeycomb kinda hurts when you rub it against skin cuz its a bit hard and jagged? I don't know if that's the right word.
It is a little on the pricey side for a soap and the packaging is not that great (it was wrapped in a piece of paper?), however considering it is a soap, that doesn't matter since it's going to stay in the soap tray anyway. But for some of their other products (massage bars, bath melts, bubble bars), the paper packaging needs to be disposed of after it gets wet and then you will need to find another container to store your product,
Like many people have said already, the soap lathers very well and my bar lasted me around two weeks. It was just a regular sized bar so I guess that is okay?
I suppose I will buy the product again because I do like the smell but I'll have to use it as a treat for when I do something good. Haha. Or for many people who don't like it in bar form, maybe try their shower gel version called 'It's Raining Men'? It smells exactly like HIWTK but again, it is expensive! :)
My friend got me this soap awhile ago. Usually, I wouldn't have brought this for myself considering I find the price to be a bit ridiculous for bar soap. I feel bad for my friend who had to waste her money on this since it dried out my skin and left it extremely itchy afterwards. I think I may be allergic to some of the ingredients in this? It smells nice though, not like honey but more like toffee or caramel. The honeycomb top layer hurts when you rub it on your skin - I think it's there just for decoration purposes only. Just didn't work for me.
Honey!!! Can i eat this soap.... this soap smells so yummy, the pleasant smell of honey and toffe combined is exhilarating.... infact my friends kid wanted to eat it... As said by a few reviewers this isn't a great shower soap it doesn't strip you of moisture but at the same time not great at keeping your skin soft and supple... Its better to use Lush's body butter after using this. Alternatively i would suggest to use this as a hand soap.
Pros: Great Smell ,lasts long, feels fresh
Cons: Not Moisturizing
I love the HIWTK smell and this soap is so creamy and lathers very well. I like to use it as a hand soap, I tend not to use solid soaps in the shower.
It smells ok, but I'm a rockstar girl. I love lush but I probably won't buy this again.
I love toffee candy and I like honey so I thought that I would love this soap. I enjoyed the smell of the soap, but I was not impressed when I used it in the shower.
My son loves this soap, and I love the fragrance!! As others have mentioned, it does have a tart yet sweet caramel type fragrance that manages to still smell...clean. But OMG the price!! Its why I will not purchase this soap again. I paid $16 for a decent sized bar of this!! I realized too late that I am not doomed to paying ridiculous prices for this soap. I'll be using dupes from online vendors from now on, and use the $$$ I save for gas, lol.
Hmm, should it smell like lemons? I guess not. I ordered two of these online after smelling them in a local LUSH. They smelt like toffee and honey there but after I received the ones bought online I was about to throw up. The smell is disgusting, like lemons and caramel together, ugh. Do I have to say more? I'm not going to repurchase this soap.
Oh, I was so taken by the smell I forgot to review the product itself. I found it easy to use but it left my skin squeaky clean (which is not a good thing) and feeling very dry!
