Lush Father Frost Soap Review

Lush Father Frost Soap 24

The Muse has been a Lush fan for many a fine year now. In all my year’s of lushin’ it up I don’t think I’ve ever come across a soap like the brand new, limited edition Father Frost Soap. Who are you and what have you done with my Lush?

Jump ahead for it!

If you happen to know Lush the Muse highly suggests opening your mind because Father Frost is bound to kick you back and make you wonder, “wait this is Lush?”

This beautiful, indigo blue soap reminds the Muse of old Victorian French milled soap. I remember when I was younger my mum used to keep soaps in our washroom which we never used they were purely for decorative purposes, Father Frost happens to smell just like those soaps. Lord knows if we dared wash our hands with those soaps or even dared touch them my mother would have a coronary….NOT the decorative SOAPS! OMGZ! That’s another story for another time though. Today it’s about dear old Father Frost….

If you don’t know what french milled soap smells like think of a very heavy floral bouquet of various flowers and you pretty much have this soap down in scent. Lush calls it the smell of a garden….me I call it elegant, old world-like, and very, very, very different from what Lush is normally known for. It’s made with apple juice and cranberries but truly that doesn’t come out in the scent at all. You’ll get a floral blend of Ylang, Ylang, Jasmine, and even a tiny bit of rose…all and all a very fresh flowery blend.

For me it’s an utter winner, for some it may be a lose if you aren’t much of a floral scented kinda girl. I personally fall into the do not want when it comes to something too flowery but this manages to win my heart. I’m not sure if I’d use it on my body but it currently has a place of honor in my hand soap dish and makes my hands both soft, smooth, and beautifully scented.

Yes, indeed I do think this Muse needs to haul more of dear old Father Frost before he leaves after the Holidays.

Muse Approval for purchase.

Lovely, ’nuff said.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I got some of this and I HATE it! I must not be a heavy floral girl but I also picked up a smokey scent. It reminds me of hot dog (so weird, I know). This is the first thing from Lush I’ve actually really hated.

    • the Muse

      LOL jaci a hot dog!? really?! I didn’t get the smoky underlay but mostly floral. I’m not a floral girl either but I adored it…very Victorian…I’m a mush for anything that reminds me of Victorian England 😀 and this did it!

  • Chelsea

    @Jaci: I totally picked up the smoky scent, too! I’m letting it cure for a couple of weeks so it’ll last longer, and I’m hoping that when I actually lather it up more of the floral will be released. That happens sometimes.

    • the Muse

      hi chelsea

      I swear I must be the only one not picking up on the smoky part 😀 I just get a heavy floral dosage after use 😀

    • Jaci

      Oh my gosh, I’m so glad some one else picked it up! I thought I was crazy. I haven’t had the nerve to even unwrap it again because I don’t want to smell it. Maybe I will let it sit out and see if it gets any better but if not, its definitely going to the bathroom in the garage where its used to clean up the dirtiest of hands.

      • Chelsea

        After lathering half of one arm with Father Frost in the shower, I can confidently state that it’s not even suited to garage work. The lather was pretty and blue but I started gagging on the smokey scent. It smelled like I was showering in an old BBQ pit. I washed my poor arm twice with Miranda to get the smoky smell out.

        • the Muse

          lol chelsea I swear I still get simple straight up floral no smoke at all 😀

          ahhh miranda, one of my favs!

    • the Muse

      will do paloma 😀 I have a quite a few up around here but not nearly as many as I love perhaps I’ll do some of my oldies but favs like Rock Star!
