Lush Review: A Sampling of Quinquereme of Nineveh, Temptation, 13th. (Unlucky for Dirt), Honey Waffle, The Godmother, & Tiptoe Through the Tulips Soaps

I hope I haven’t left anything out but I’m trying to catch up with the reviews I was suppose to do and am lagging far behind =(.  Please forgive me.  I was fortunate enough to get a chance to sample the following soaps and wanted to share my impressions of them.  Hopefully this small review will somehow help you decide whether or not to purchase these soaps, especially if you are not conveniently located near a Lush store and have to order online…

Quinquereme of Nineveh Soap: If you love Trichomania Solid Shampoo and Coolaulin Conditioner, than this soap maybe for you since it’s just as rich in coconut scent as the ones I’ve just named.  The texture is similar to I Should Coco soap; however, the pieces of coconut are not as large and shredded as in ISC.  Personally, I love this soap and wouldn’t hesitate to buy a full-size bar.

  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Creamed coconut
  • Orange oil
  • Vanilla absolute

Temptation Soap: There is a strong “green” botanical scent entwined with apple and mint.  For me this is what I would label as a so-so scent just because I have a proclivity to sweet candy scents.  I do love its glycerin texture.  I prefer Gavarnie much more but that’s just me.

  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Fresh apple juice
  • Myrrh resinoid
  • Orange blossom absolute
  • Cinnamon leaf oil
  • Apple rings
  • Gardenia extract

13th. (Unlucky for Dirt) Soap: Fresh peppercorns immediately come to mind.  This is not my favorite soap but Lush gets an A+ for scent creativity.  You are going to laugh when I say this but this wouldn’t be a bad kitchen soap.

  • Oregano & rose petal infusion
  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Honey
  • Manuka honey
  • Oregano oil
  • Rose absolute
  • Geranium oil

Honey Waffle Soap: A sweet, true honey/honeycomb scent unlike its cousin Honey I Washed The Kids soap (which has a more playful sweet vanilla scent).  HW also has a slight nutty scent to me.  I prefer HIWTK to HW for obvious reasons (you know me by now).

  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Honeycomb
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Geranium oil
  • Gardenia extract

The Godmother Soap: Has a spicy saltwater taffy scent.  Can easily be classified as a candy scent and is definitely a very popular Lush soap; a favorite to many though I prefer Rock Star soap to it.

  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Synthetic musk
  • Iris glitter

Tiptoe Through the Tulips Soap: Has a relatively strong cleaning detergent scent similar to brands like Ajax and Comet.  For me, it’s not a bad thing since it brings back childhood memories of watching my father wax the floors of his shop (in anticipation of returning home for family time).  The name Lush chose for this particular soap is not indicative of its scent- at least to me it’s not but maybe to someone else it is.

  • Sweet violet leaf infusion
  • Gardenia extract
  • Rose otto absolute
  • Geranium oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Kaffir lime leaf
  • Red rosebuds
