Lush B Electro Soap Review

During my last UK Lush Order I failed to order Lush B Electro Soap which is Lush’s newest soap that’s available for a limited time, thank god for that.

I’m not the biggest fan of B Electro considering that it reminds me of another soap Lush used to make entitled Happy….I believe it was Happy don’t quote me on that though (many Lush soaps have come and gone through the Muse’s life and she can’t remember them all, especially if they sucked!).

It lathers really well however doesn’t offer any moisturizing as most Lush soaps do. I think about the only good thing about it, is it’s cool neon color and the neon suds it creates in my shower! I feel like I need a dark light so I can take a shower while my body is partially submerged in bits of neon green suds! During this time I could also play bad 80’s Cyndi Lauper songs and bop around the shower stall singing about how girls just want to have fun (stranger things have been known to happen in the Muse’s shower!).

I normally dislike shopping for Lush in store considering people put their grubby, sweaty hands on everything in the store which is about the time the Muse has a total freak attack over the germs…oh god the germs…..Ahhhh! Lord knows some of these people may have picked their nose prior to picking up that bath bomb!

You can relate if A. You’ve shopped at Lush before or B. Don’t dig strangers touching soap and other items that you’ll be using on your body or face!

I got sucked into the pull of buying a chunk of B Electro when an SA calmly explained to me that the entire slab was brand new and just put out, she promised, swore on her dear old dead grandmere, and on her unborn child that it indeed was new. I quickly took her word for it and decided ok I’ll buy a slice since I’m here already! Later on my friend Jamie reminded me that several people were in the store during this time and could have possibly touched it before I entered shop…thanks Jamie…Love you.

I quickly realized when I got it home that this wasn’t for me. Although it’s a nice enough soap and suds up beautiful and of course as I mentioned it’s freaking neon green (that along should make us all wet our pants in excitement!), this is sadly all it has going for it. I sniffed it casually when in the store but when I did finally get around to using it I just wasn’t digging the scent.

Sheesh I hate giving Lush a poor review. I love Lush but this just didn’t do it for me! I had hoped and wished for a bright, citrus scent and B Electro does have have a nice fruity, citrus smell but it also has an underlay of fennel and rose which pulls through way more prominently then it’s base of grapefruit. I don’t mind the rose but bringing together rose, fennel, grapefruit and jasmine and you pretty much have disaster in a bar of soap!

Sadly, B Electroc failed to do much for me and my $10 piece quickly made it’s way into the nearest trash can however I keep hope alive that one day Lush will create another masterpiece of a citrus soap like Sexy Peel and all will be right again with the world! Until that time no more exciting neon green shower experiences here!

Tried it out?

Want to?

Loved it?

    Hi Miss Muse,

    I keep forgetting where I leave you a quick hello.

    The photo in this post is scary but memorable and very funny.

    Wanted to let you know – Neiman has a GWP event this weekend. Some of the gifts are really nice. Also, if you spend $250, you get a $25 gift card, etc.

    Much love!

    I just received several chunks of Godmother and Sexy Peel as a gift, and while I LOVE Godmother I haven’t had a chance to try Sexy Peel yet. You’ve inspired me to whip it out!

  • Connie

    that is one disturbing picture! Lol. the neon green is indeed tempting but I guess not all great things come in pretty packaging.

  • prettybeautiful

    this is interesting, i have never seen an unwrapped soap bar on shelf before. too bad it didnt work for u, but at least thts a stunning green? :p

  • Piece of Cake

    OHHHH…that male electro green butt also made me loose my lunch, Karen. Too funny, though. I couldn’t disagree with you more on Lush situation. I love walking into the store and sniff at the wonderful aroma of Lush store, but I would never ever buy soap from there cos honestly, I keep picturing customers coming in from the loo and just have to rid of the toilet smell on their hands in that store. Picture it yet? 😀

  • Tammy M

    I have never tried Lush….and looking at Sasha at 7:30 am right when I get to work, prior to my second cup of coffee is just so wrong on so many levels…
