Lush Yog Log Roulade Review

Good morning my lovelies and welcome to this blog post!

Today’s review is of a product that isn’t THAT appropriate for this season. It was a Christmas exclusive product last year, but I’ve only just finished up my piece and really want to review it while it is still fresh in my mind! Sorry for the randomness!

Remember, I always review Lush products AFTER having used up the entire product, so that I have a well informed opinion before I write a review!

I hope you enjoy 🙂


 

Yog Log Roulade:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This stuff runs out so fast, and is really expensive. I bought a piece of Yog Log Roulade that was big enough to cut into 8 slices, and it cost me around £13 – in the half price Boxing Day sale! So, 8 pretty thin slices of this stuff (size of slice shown in photo) would have normally cost me £26. Each slice lasted around 2 or 3 days as a hand soap in me and my partner’s bathroom sink. I just personally found this product to be a luxury, and not the sort of thing anyone would want to buy to use on a regular basis!

Yog Log Roulade was an exclusive product for the Christmas season in 2016, and is no longer available to buy. It may not even become available for the Christmas season this year, so it has very limited availability! If you do happen to get your hands on some of this product, and happen to fall in love with it, you’re going to have a tough time stocking up on the stuff!

I didnt like the colour of Yog Log Roulade. ‘Yog Nog’, the soap version of this roulade, had a creamy, orangey, mustard yellow colour to it, whereas Yog Log had a more biscuity, beige brown colour to it. It didn’t look that appealing to me personally!

I didn’t like the scent of Yog Log as much as that of Yog Nog either. It had a sort of creamy, biscuity scent, mixed in with the scent of play dough. If you want to purchase Yog Log because you love the scent of Yog Nog then don’t – they do not smell the same!

This is a pretty messy soap product, because of how soft and buttery it is. Pieces of the product would cling to sides of my sink as I’d wash my hands, which was pretty annoying.

The texture of Yog Log might not be something that everyone likes. It has a slightly grainy, creamy, buttery texture. I quite enjoyed the texture but I do know some people who hate anything that they consider to feel “slimy”, which they may find this product to be!

This is, supposedly, an incredibly moisturising soap. I however did not find this to be the case. I didn’t find this soap to be incredibly drying, but I definitely didn’t find it to be moisturising.


Pros:

The scent of Yog Log Roulade is sweet, biscuity and creamy. It is quite a nice scent!

The whole experience of using Yog Log feels like a luxurious treat, which is always nice! It has a sweet and creamy scent, a buttery texture – it is a very decadent product, and with a price to match! This is a really nice soap to use as a treat 🙂

I think the overall appearance of the product and how it is put together is really fun. It reminds me of a delicious Swiss Roll cake! Lovely!

I like the colour of wax that is used on the outside of Yog Log. It is a nice, bright, sunny yellow colour!

This is certainly a unique soap. I have never used a soap like this in my life, and it was definitely a fun novelty!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I’m not really sure what I think of this product. While using it I was sure that it was a product I really enjoyed, but looking back, I’m not sure if it was really quite as good as I thought it was!

I think bottom line, this is a luxury product. It makes a terrible everyday sort of soap, because it just doesn’t last long as all and is a bit messy – and is also REALLY expensive! If used as a luxury product though – like how I used my Yog Log up in just a few weeks, then this soap provides a really lovely experience for the user.

Overall, I’m going to rate this product a 4/5* rating. It did its job well, and was a lovely and luxurious product to use, but it just wasn’t quite enough to get a 5 star rating from me!

Lush Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt Review

Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt:

Rating: 3/5*

Cons:

This bath bomb was super moisturising. As in, it was a little bit TOO moisturising. There was so much melted cocoa butter in the bath that the bath water was super greasy. The melted cocoa butter would mix with any dirt and dry skin on my body, and create this soapy residue, that clung to my skin and the sides of the bath tub. If this sounds a little nasty to you, perhaps you should give this bath product a miss!

This bath product is SUPER GLITTERY! You WILL get gold lustre all over your hands and anything that your hands touch once you have held Golden Egg. My phone case is still absolutely covered in golden lustre after using the Golden Egg last night! Don’t try Golden Egg if this sounds like a bit of a nuisance to you.

The show for Golden Egg wasn’t extremely impressive. The bath product fizzed away very slowly and softly, releasing golden lustre, yellow colorant, creamy foam and cocoa butter into the bath water. This is a relaxing bath bomb. If you are looking to be completely blown away, I’d give a different bath product a try!

This is an exclusive product for Lush’s Easter range! If you happen to love it, you’re going to have a difficult time stocking up on this bath product during other times of the year!

Golden Egg’s scent is really, really sickly! It is a vanilla, sweet, burnt toffee, creamy, perfumey sort of a scent. If you don’t like perfumey toffee scents, steer clear my friend!

The ultimate bath water that Golden Egg left my bath water was a yellow colour, with a slightly green tinge to it. I know a lot of people who do not like bath products that turn their bath water yellow – you’ve been warned!


Pros:

I received Golden Egg as a gift – and it made such a lovely gift 🙂 It is such a popular bath bomb – it feels amazing to be able to use one of the most popular Lush products of all time!

I think the lustre on Golden Egg is gorgeous. I even like that my phone case is now covered in the stuff. I always take a shower after I have a bath to rinse off any excess product, and even after doing so VERY thoroughly, I still found a subtle lustre on my skin 🙂 It made me feel like a sparkly Goddess!

I really like the scent of Golden Egg. It is very sickly, but I can’t resist it! I’m a sucker for caramel, syrupy, toffee, fudgy sorts of scents. If you are too then you are going to absolutely LOVE the smell of this bath product!

I remember sitting in the bath tub, and thinking about how awesome the bath water looked. I don’t know if anyone else had one of these as a kid, but the water looked like the glittery water sometimes found within a water snake. I’ll attach a picture to one below… Anyways, it looked awesome!

I felt so clean and moisturised after my bath with Golden Egg. The cocoa butter softened up my skin so much, that any even slightly dry skin was completely washed off when it came to washing my body. The cocoa butter also made my skin feel super lovely and moisturised once out of the bath. If you want your skin to feel super fresh, soft, healthy and moisturised, using Golden Egg is a really great way to achieve that feeling!

Golden Egg is so cute! It is an egg covered in golden lustre for God’s sake. How bloody adorable is that?!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I’m not entirely sure of what I actually think of the Golden Egg. It is extremely popular, and was a gift to me, so I definitely FEEL as though I’m supposed to absolutely love it. It was just so, so oily… I found myself scraping the buttery residue off of my skin almost constantly while I was in the bath, and what I would scrape off was REALLY nasty. The butter would just completely remove all old, dry skin from my body, as well as any dirt whatsoever, so the scraped off residue was just… Really gross.

That residue would then go on to cling to the sides of my bath. I almost always wash my hair, then my hands, then face and then body in the bath water, and then shower afterwards just to rinse off any leftover product. I couldn’t do that in the water that Golden Egg produced. I was fine to initially wet my face/hair with the water, but wouldn’t want to use to bath water to then rinse out any shampoo etc too – I had to do this using the shower head.  The residue along the sides of the bath was so nasty, that there was only one unaffected spot along the side of the bath tub which I could lean on!

I also wasn’t keen on the overall show of Golden Egg – although I wouldn’t actually say it was bad. It just wasn’t really anything that amazed me. I wan’t that happy with the colour that it left my bath water, and the scent was also a little bit too much for me I think

There were a lot of things I loved about Golden Egg though. I was cool with the lustre – it wasn’t problematic for me whatsoever, and I actually really enjoyed its inclusion in Golden Egg a lot. It gave the bath water a really lovely appearance overall. The toffee-ness of the scent was also absolutely lovely. One of the most important things, is how the bath product actually made me physically feel – and it did absolute wonders for my skin. Honestly, I don’t think my skin has ever felt so amazing after having taken a bath! Plus, this was such a cute product in general!

I’m finding it difficult to rate this bath product. Overall, I’m going to rate it a 3/5* rating. It was definitely more of a positive experience than a negative one, but this bath bomb was just way too buttery for my liking!

If I could put up with the negative sides of such a buttery bath, then I’d absolutely adore this bath bomb. I just really couldn’t!

Lush Yog Nog Hand And Body Soap Review

Hello!

I finally used up my piece of Yog Nog from last year, here is my review for it! Keep in mind that this soap is no longer available in stores, and is now in the format of a roulade.


Yog Nog Hand And Body Soap

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This soap turns very buttery toward the end of the bar. This can be difficult to work with, and for me meant smushing the buttery pieces of soap into my hands to create a lather, and so that they wouldn’t be wasted. This can be inconvenient!

The smell of this soap is very, very strong. It is a very sweet, spicy and slightly bitter smell, all of which can become a bit sickly after a while.

This soap lasts quite a long time. This could make the soap begin to seem boring after a while for some people.

The colour of the soap is a lot less bright than a lot of Lush’s other soaps.

After a while of using this soap, I noticed my hands becoming dry. I don’t know if it was due to this soap or not though, because this soap is generally very moisturising. Something to think about though!

This soap can get quite messy. When it gets quite small, it will break into a few different little pieces, which just end up clinging to the inside of the sink when you wash your hands.

This is a Christmas exclusive product, and has been discontinued and replaced with Yog Log this year. That means that if you do find some from a different source, and really enjoy it, it may be difficult to buy more of the soap.


Pros:

This soap smells so, so good. It smells like a caramel pudding. It smells REALLY good! Definitely like something you would want to eat.

The design of this soap is really cute.

I like the colour of the soap – it goes well with the smell of the soap.

This soap is really moisturising. Compared to other soaps that I have been using, this one definitely left my hands feeling the nicest.

This soap has a very warm feel to it. What I mean by that is that the scent and design of the soap just makes me think of the colder seasons, Christmas and Autumn. It is really nice to use around those times of the year!

The lather that this soap creates is very thick and creamy, it’s really nice to use.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really, really like this soap. My partner really enjoyed it too – he thinks it smells like gingerbread. It is an extremely nice soap and we both miss it now that we’ve used it up!

I rate this soap a… hmm… I’m going to have to give it 5/5*. The main reason is that it isn’t just me who really enjoyed this soap, but the fact that my partner liked it so much too.

I hope you enjoyed this review!
