Lush Christmas Cake Soap Review

The Muse likes cake. She particularly likes Christmas Cake. It’s a rather sad state of affairs that Christmas Cake isn’t as popular within the US as it is in the UK.

Of course, we have our version which looks something like this:
fruit cake

And tastes something like this:
cardboard

The Muse says if you want really good Christmas Cake your best bet is hop onto the nearest flight to England!

If you’re not particularly ready to board a plane the Muse highly recommends nabbing some Lush Christmas Cake Soap and calling it a day! Lush Christmas Cake Soap wasn’t on my wishy list this year however the curiosity of Christmas and Cake in one sentence, together, peeked my interest.

What Lush has to say about it:

Looks like cake, smells like cake, but it’s best to wash with it (trust us). Christmas Cake soap reminds us of a very special holiday treat on a festive platter next to an open fire of fragrant, smouldering wood logs that chase the chill away. This skin-softening soap with soothing, smoky vetivert essential oil and organic aloe vera keeps your skin calm (and spirits bright) during the Yuletide, even if everything else goes a little crazy.

What the Muse has to say about it:

Christmas Cake Soap is quite a delightful little surprise! Strangely enough Christmas Cake smells quite similiar to Snowcake (the Muse’s most favorite soap evers!) But don’t buy this just because you love Snowcake because honestly the two soaps are vastly different. Although Christmas Cake has the beautiful base of Snowcake it also contains a smoky dominant note of vetivert which makes this an interesting cocktail of delicate and hard. I’m normally not partial to soaps that have such a woodsy note but I really enjoy how this takes a combination of a soft scent and is beefed up with a hard nutty edge. You’ll get the faint scent of marzipan to start with and closely behind that you’ll get a fruity woodsy dominant note which is followed close behind by a hint of spice. It’s such a complex blend that it’s something you need to check out for yourself to either appreciate or hate. The Muse falls into the appreciate group! I like this one! It’s a rather interesting blend that I haven’t really smelled in any other Lush product so I’m liking it. Very unique and different!

I don’t think Christmas Cake is for everyone however those who appreciate complex, unique blends should like this very much. Christmas Cake is available for a limited time during the Holidays at your local Lush or from Lush’s website! Grab some before it’s gone as Holiday products are known to sell out very, very, very quickly!

The Muse is glad to add a little Christmas Cake to her morning shower and thinks you might too!

Tried this already?

Love it?

Tell the Muse!
