I'm definitely more of a shower gel gal, but I couldn't say no to the cutest little Golden Pear Soap! Not only does it look like a decoration, it smells incredible too! It contains fresh pear puree, spicy cardamom oil, bright Brazilian orange oil, organic cocoa butter and a sprig of clove as the stem. It's pretty strongly scented but the mixture of fruit and spice is sweet, slightly sour, warm and truly irresistible.
I'm thinking it may be better used as a hand soap in a bathroom (at our new house!). How pretty would it be sitting in a little dish at the sink? It's definitely a decorative piece that I would want to display, even if guests may not realize that it's actually soap.
The creamy centre is a combination of murumuru butter and almond oil, which help create a rich, moisturizing lather. It's this element that makes the soap feel more luxurious and special. The combination of cold weather and central heating can make our skin feel dry and itchy, so it's important to use hydrating products during this time of year.
I'm not fond of the golden glitter coating - it looks nice but sticks to absolutely everything - but after a few uses it should all disappear, and then I'll probably feel sad that it won't look as beautiful...
Golden Pear Soap is a Christmas exclusive and can be found in LUSH stores or online for $8.95.
