Kate's Product of the Week: Lush Rock Star Soap

It's that time of the week again! This time next week I'll be in Barcelona so my PotW will probably be done a little earlier than usual. Last week I did my Owl Tweezers for my PotW and I'm very pleased to say I was an enabler and the lovely Louise from Confessions of a Secret Shopper had to go out and buy them straight away.

I know, I know. We've not long had a Lush Product but this one's very worthy of it and don't know why I didn't do it sooner. It's Lush's Fabulous Rock Star Soap

When I was about 12 I discovered Lush with my Sister in London and was entranced. As usual I over indulged and couldn't bare the thought of going into a Lush because of the smell being overbearing (this was before internet shopping was a big thing). But before Christmas I went to Lush in the Trafford Centre and smelt something that made me so nostalgic that I had to buy it and it was this: Rock Star Soap.

I love everything about this product, the smell, the colour and it's just amazing. I've always used to have these problems under my arms which meant I'd get hives or sores under my arms but since I've stopped using body wash and started using this, my underarms have never been so clear and sore free.

The smell is like a candy store, it's sweet and lovely and also really creamy. It's pleasant and I always get told I smell great after I've used it. And it makes the water in the bath turn pink. (I tried to get a picture of the suds but my hands were really slippy haha)

A massive chunk this size will last me about 3 months and it cost £9 for nearly 400g which is double of what this massive chunk is. My favourite part about this soap is that it does have stars going through it. It's main featured ingredient is: Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute, which are basically Vanilla Beans or Pods, which is why it smells so creamy. 

I really can't recommend this product enough and below is the summary why it's my Product of the Week (and a big contender for Product of the Year 2014):
  • It smells fantastic
  • The colour of it's gorgeous and girly
  • It has stars in it!
  • It's made with Fair Trade ingredients.
  • It's helped with skin conditions that I've lived with for years. 
So there you have it my 5th Product of the week! I will be back next week with another fabulous product!  If you have any suggestions for products of the week, let me know in the comments below.
