I never quite understood the fascination with Lush . This was till some time back when i actually stepped foot into a Lush store for the very first time and got sucked right into those honeysuckle smelling soaps, and thick grainy scrubs and cute little bath bombs. Honestly though , i just cannot get myself to spend that much on a piece of soap. Ill spend it on haircare, possibly on scrubs but soap.. 330-550 Rs (8-10$) for 100 gm !! No Way.
|Lush- Honey i washed the kids|
Anyway, so for the record-“ Honey I Washed the Kids” is my absolutely favourite Lush soap. It is the most amazing smelling warm honey cinnamoney comforting soap and i adore it ! To me its the kind of soap i want for winter- something relaxing and homely and cosy.
I dont actually own any lush soaps so this favourite is based on smell alone cos thats a big factor for me !
|Earthy Goods Forest Honey Soap- Love the smell!|
So today, i was browsing through Select City Walk Mall, and i happened to stop by this little kiosk selling “Earthy Goods” products. I was actually intrigued by their Apricot Scrub but somehow got drawn into their soaps. This particular soap “Forest Honey” smelt EXACTLY like ‘Honey i Washed the kids”. I couldnt stop sniffing it !. I thought the SA was going to throw me out for behaving like a crazy person. But this one smelt exactly like that warm honey scent like the Lush one except this was milder. They had some other options which were very interesting but this was by far my favourite,. And the best part? It costed Rs 75 (1.5$) for 100 gm.. super yay! Now i realise that amidst all the sniffing i totally forgot about the Scrub! :(
So i have only tried this a couple of times, and on the first instance i felt a slightly strange feeling on my hands- Yes they felt squeeky clean but slightly waxy. However after about 5 seconds that went away and the lovely scent lingered on! Will only know the actual pros/ cons once i use it regularly. However if you want those gorgeous lush scents in cheaper rates- this is a great place !
