Lush Layer Cake Soap Review

Lush Layer Cake Soap Review

Bare with me, I flew home yesterday and for once in my life I am severely jet lagged. I have no idea what this has to do with soap but I felt the need to share...

Soap may not be the most interesting of beauty products but it must do well, if not surely brands such as Lush would scrap it entirely? I rather enjoy a good slab of soap and like to purchase pretty hand soaps for my bathroom - typically I use them to wash my hands but every now and then I stumble across a great formulation and/or fragrance and use it in place of shower gel. With the current UK weather being dismal at best, I have found myself searching for uplifting and fruity scents, and fitting the bill perfectly is Lush Layer Cake Soap.

Unlike other Lush soaps, Lush Layer Cake Soap is constructed in layers of fragrance (hence the name) and as such, the way it is cut will alter the overall scent. Rest assure that it will smell wonderful regardless but if there is a particular scent you are found of, you may want to make that known to the sales assistant. Speaking of the layers the scents are as follows: raspberry, blueberry, wild grape, pineapple and orange - all of which are constructed from real fruit juices. I personally find that the overall fragrance is reminiscent of fruit juice cocktails and of course Summers spent on a tropical beach.

I will admit that this is not the most moisturising of formulations (it is Vegan friendly though) and as such I do have to follow up with an intense body or hand lotion after each use. It does however produce, a fruity and soft foam come froth when in use that deeply cleanses with ease. Would or do I use it daily? No but it is a great, brightening addition to any bathroom and a cheap, cheerful way to inject a little fruity fun into any cleansing routine.

Lush Layer Cake Soap £3.50/100g via Lush - link.

  1. This sounds absolutely gorgeous! I always find soaps to be much more moisturising than shower gels, every time I use a scented shower gel my skin itches like crazy when I get out of the shower, but I don't usually have this problem with soaps! Having said that, I've not tried any of the Lush soaps before so it looks like I'll have to give this one a go next time I'm at Lush! Thanks for sharing xx

  3. I had no idea of the concept behind the name. I prefer a moisturizing formula as I have quite dry skin but the scent sounds yummy! xx

  11. I love the idea of a soap with multiple scents that can be altered to a preference simply by cutting it a certain way - sounds pretty unique to me! I'll take a look on my next trip to Lush :)
