So I got this soap a while ago, free from Lush in Middlesbrough as a Random Act of Kindness one day when I was in store. I wasn’t expecting it and honestly, I thought it was lovely as I was going to buy this soap eventually.
Honey I Washed The Kids Soap (HIWTK) is a very creamy colour, almost like honey that has settled at the bottom of the jar or bottle, or cloudy honey that you can sometimes buy. The colour isn’t much to look at honestly, but HIWTK soap makes up for it in other ways. It may not look the nicest but it smells amazing. The new HIWTK soap has a dark brown transparent top layer which has a honeycomb pattern on which is a nice touch considering the older soap was slightly boring.
HIWTK soap smells like toffee and caramel it’s a really lovely smell, very sweet and uplifting, sort of takes me back to being a kid in my grandma’s kitchen as her brother used to keep bees and I remember watching her get the honey out of the honeycomb and getting the wax out too. The warm sticky smell of the honey, just takes me back, especially considering that I don’t like to eat honey because I find it too messy and too sweet on my teeth.
I find this soap to be a little soft as well, in fact, mine got stuck under the top of my lush drawer unit and got damaged and squashed. Which is a little disappointing but I guess it’s just soap and will end up down the drain eventually. I think the creaminess of the soap adds to the lathering of HIWTK soap. As it produces a creamy lather which helps to moisturise the skin and make it soft and supple.
I would buy this soap again when this bar I have runs out as I do really like it. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturised, and leave a lovely light smell of honey on the skin. The smell does last a while and it would last even longer if I combined it with Scrubbee, Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar, It’s Raining Men shower gel and the Honey I Washed The Kids perfume.
