OK, this is the first of a new series of archive posts, covering different types of Lush products, including current, Retro, limited edition and otherwise unavailable varieties. We hope to collect opinions and descriptions for future reference, for all Lushies to use and enjoy.

We're starting with soaps. If you have any reviews of these or other soaps, please post them in the community and we'll add them to the archive pages for future reference. Remember to add a mark out of 10 if you can!

Reviews of Lush soaps, past and present )

We'd particularly love reviews of products not featured here, but if you've got anything to say about any of these, go right ahead!

Well, I missed last Friday's Blog Your Bath Day. However, to celebrate the tremendously exciting news that we now have a working shower again (plus a bonus dead bee from the inside of the switch), I'm blogging last night's ablutions instead.

Having the shower back is a fantastic relief; there is such a thing as too much bathing, sometimes. Because the weather's been a little mean to us all lately, I decided to be reasonably gentle with myself, and stick mostly with tried and tested favourites. So I washed my lank hair with some deliciously revivifying Big, and now it's actually squeaky clean. It also works wonderfully with Okra conditioner for a really soft finish.

I decided to try the tub verson of Rub Rub Rub on the sturdier bits of my skin; I've used the bottle version before, but this slightly tweaked formula and better container is a substantial improvement. It's just abrasive enough to be enlivening, but not rough enough to itch and bother (I hate the solid sugar scrubs *shudder*). This is much easier to use. I found a very old but still good piece of Karma soap for more sensitive washing, and it really is a a very good combination with the Rub Rub Rub, which also contains orange blossom. Just right for being slathered with Karma Kream afterwards.

I actually washed my face with Sweet Japanese Girl, a long-vanished solid cleanser with exfoliant, like a bad-ass version of Babyface. Although I generally think Lush's facial products have improved since I've been using them, I am still a little nostalgic for SJG, which was just such an easy, hassle-free clean. You can't even get it on Retro now, though. I shall be sad when I finally use mine up.

I ended by popping some reliable King Of Skin onto the drier bits, and that was me done. Hurrah! What a glorious relief it all was.
