Basin White

Last summer’s trip to Las Vegas had us venturing into the Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes after enjoying a Blue Man Group performance just moments before.  I was looking for a Thank You present to gift to mom and chose the three pictured below.  My mom thought they were too pretty to use =).  Due to the ingredients and their nature, I would not recommend anyone use Basin White vegetable glycerin soaps to scent their drawers or closets since they are prone to mild melting.

For myself, I purchased the Pink Sugar bath salts, Birthday Cake/Cupcake vegetable glycerin soap, and the Jack-O-Lantern vegetable glycerin soap.  I have yet to use the bath salts but highly recommend the bar soaps because they are moisturizing, smell nice, and will add visual interest to a dull sink area =)!

Basin White, please come to New York!!!

Lush Review: Porridge Soap

I can’t believe I haven’t done a review on Porridge.  It was one of the first Lush soaps I tried.  I love the honey sweetness but there’s also a slight sourness to the scent which I don’t especially like.  In use, the scent of the soap is more agreeable to me; there’s a consistent sweetness.  It’s a great exfoliator, not too abrasive, but gradually loses its exfoliating granules with each swipe.  Even though Sandstone Soap (awesome candied lemon scent) is a bit rougher on my skin; it’s still my favorite scent-wise.
