Lush Enzymic Roulade is one of several new soaps or “shower smoothies” as Lush calls them that launched earlier last month. These are called roulades due to their spiral or roll shape. You’ll likely familiar with either meat or pastry roulades if you hail from certain parts of Europe. Roulade aren’t a very popular dessert or food item here in the US but for me they do bring to mind Christmas.
Let’s take a look!
The biggest compliant I hear about Lush’s soap range is the fact they melt so fast. I love how creamy and dreamy Lush soap is but I have to agree, they do indeed melt away fairly quickly under warm water.
Lush Enzymic Roulade is likely going to be around well after the human race dies out and the zombies and dinosaurs rule the world. I’ve been using this for over a month now and it’s still the same shape it was when I got it. So yeah, this isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
Lush formulated with one with limes, pineapple, and papaya but oddly enough it doesn’t actually smell like any of those things. It’s kinda a green, grassy scent that reminds me of Demon in the Dark sans the mint. It even looks like Demon in the Dark and for a second I thought you had to somehow peel away a layer to get to the soap, especially since it kinda was falling away in chunks anyway!
I actually don’t like it and I’m hopeful the other roulades will be much nicer. The thing I like about Lush soaps is the fact they produce creamy lather plus they leave my skin delicately scented. I’m not keen on the scent anyway but it does deserve mentioning the fragrance doesn’t last outside of the shower and disappears quickly. It also produces a rather weak lather and unfortunately I’m one of those people that’s convinced and conditioned that lather is what I gets me clean so yeah, without the lather 1. I feel kinda dirty (which isn’t true but hey, I can’t help it!) and 2. I feel like it kinda has this weird rough glide on skin as it doesn’t produce enough lather to allow it to glide smoothly across my skin.
Lush Enzymic Roulade has launched yet in the US but when it does I fear it might just be a skip. The plus side is the fact it will literally last for ages but the negative side has me wanting to throw it out already as I’m just simply not loving it!
