Lush Lady Catrina Soap Review and Photos

Man, Halloween isn’t even here yet and Lush NA sold out of its Dead of the Dead Collection before I blinked.


The good news is the collection is still available and ready to ship to you from the UK. Thank god because I think I need back ups of Lush Lady Catrina Soap.



Lush’s fruity soap is shaped like a lovely little bonnet but once they hack into it chances are you’ll simply get a lump of purple marbleized soap that smells oh so delightful.

I have to say after smelling and using many Lush Soaps over the years this could easily be deemed a fond favorite, Lush really needs to consider making it part of the Retro line up or at the very least keeping it on full time because it is simply delightful.

At first sniff it has a fizzy grape candy scent going on but soon after the zest and tartness of lime creeps into the blend. So not only do you get a fair bit of candyish grape but the heavier note of lime makes the soap become a tart citrus that really wakes you up in the shower.

Honestly, it’s one of Lush’s best blends and would translate so well into a fragrance or shower gel!

If you like fruity, candy-like scents this one is for you! Think of grape soda with a twist of lime!

All hail Lady Catrina she makes my shower oh so sweet.

Muse Approved for purchase, backs ups are a must. Get at least five slices, you’ll regret it if you don’t!

Available from Lush UK, sadly sold out from Lush US.

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.

    Hi Muse!

    Do you know if Lush has an after Christmas sale? I want to buy many of the things you post about it but it’s just for me.I was just wondering if I could save some $$$ if I wait =)


    • the Muse

      kelly they have a sale on boxing day but stuff sells out fast and ends up not being in stock so you aren’t going to save a ton of $$ since nothing will be left 🙁

  • Heather

    Love, love, love the lime oil scent! They need to keep this baby year round!

  • lushberry

    it’s too good! I just sniff it whenever I am in the vicinity of my bar. I am going to have to buy another one!

  • Jessie

    Almost wanted to add this to the shopping bag, but considering I am getting all the Christmas soap, had decided against it. But but, now, I am undecided again!

  • Stephanie

    I have a small UK order on the way with all the DotD stuff. Can’t wait to smell it!

    • the Muse

      Yay Stephanie ;-D let me know whatcha think when it arrives, you’re going to luv it!

  • Ricci

    Havent smelled it yet.. I wonder if the Lush store near me still have some left? what a pretty soap!

  • jonnie

    OMG, it sounds soooo good! I wish I would have bought some now. The only Halloween thing I bought was Ghost (which is awesome! It’s such a somber, peaceful scent). This sounds amazing.

    • the Muse

      Jonnie <33333333 ghost ;D I have the Lily Savon perfume from Lush and adore it ;-D smells just like ghost!

    Just bought some of this last Friday. I was at the mall going to the BE boutique and looked over the railing and what did I see…LUSH!!!! I proceeded to fling myself over the railing, but figured the escalator would be best….what was waiting for me by the door when I got there??? None other than Lady Catrina. :0p____________

    Fortunately, I was able to escape with only this and Sexy Peel. I am seriously contemplating skipping a second Sephora order and going back to the LUSH store!

    I had not been to a LUSH store in years and I am glad I was able to snatch up this little gem!

    • the Muse

      YAY allison awesome ;-D LOL! It’s fantastic. Sexy peel is awesome too but Catrina SO amazing ;-D check the front page of my blog, they made a perfume!!!!!

      • allison1998

        I should have forgone the Sexy Peel and got more Lady Catrina! Didnt think of it until I was back home.

        Perfume….Oh, fooey…I missed it! I dont see them online anywhere either…will these scents be released to stores or for online purchase?

        • the Muse
