Lush Baked Alaska Soap Review

I bought this soap in the boxing day sale in 2015, and have only just used it up! Here is my review for this soap 🙂

Baked Alaska Soap:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap is really cleansing, and may even begin to dry out your hands after continuous use.

I didn’t find this soap super exciting to be honest. It is a simple, green coloured, lemon scented soap.

This is a Christmas exclusive item so if you find that you like it, you’re going to have a lot of trouble obtaining it at other times of the year!

Knowing Lush, there isn’t even any guarantee whatsoever that this soap will return next Christmas season so again, if you like it then you’re going to have a tough time finding a good supply!

This soap isn’t really well suited for Winter – in fact, I found it nicest to use in the Summer.


Pros:

This soap smells really good. It smells incredibly cirtrusy! It smells so, so lemony and citrusy and lovely! A FANTASTIC one for the Summer – trust me!

This soap is super cleansing and refreshing, and the scent really suits the Summer time (as I just said..) If you can manage to save this one for the Summer then you’re going to enjoy this soap that much more!

My partner loved this soap. He would smell it constantly, so it’s a winner for both men and women.

This soap is very colourful and is more fun to look at than the traditional white bathroom soap. Again, it looks really Summery!

Baked Alaska lathers up incredibly well – likely the best lathering soap I have used thus far!

It has a creamy layer on the top, which makes for a creamier lather if you make sure to rub this side of the soap on your hands.

This soap lasts forever! It has lasted me a year – a YEAR! And that is with many, many uses.

I found that Lush soaps work best as hand soaps and to be kept by the sink. This one makes for a lovely hand soap 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this would be a really nice soap to use exclusively for the Summer, when your hands get all sticky and you just want to freshen up with a lovely Summery scent. Otherwise, I think this soap would be far too drying and that the scent wouldn’t really go too well with the time of the year.

My partner has said that he thinks the smell was really lovely and limey, but he found the soap to be quite drying and that the lather was difficult to product and wasn’t very moisturising.

Overall, I’m going to give this soap a 4/5* rating. This is because I think it would be an amazing soap to use in the Summer, but not so great at other times of the year!
