lush king of skin

i have been a bad blogger. i have broken the unwritten rule and used this product before photographing. i have nothing to say but i'm sorry, please forgive me!

moving on.... i'd heard quite a bit about the lush body bars, and after seeing alix talk about this particular one in a video i decided to try out king of skin.


if you don't know what the body bars are, they're basically solid body butters that you rub over damp skin before getting out the shower. this was originally in the shape of a crown, but as i said i um, used it.

it took me a while to work out how to use this, which was part of the reason i didn't take pictures as when i first purchased it i didn't think it was worth a review. however, once you know how to use it, it's amazing. you wash it off before getting out, and it leaves a slight oily residue. i like to really massage it in and find it leaves my body so nice and moisturised. obviously it's not a particularly rich moisturiser and if you have very dry skin it might not be too great, but for every day moisturisation it's perfect!

however, the best bit is the smell. even if you don't want to buy it, just please go into lush and smell it. it's absolutely gorgeous, and somehow manages to be vanilla-y and lovely without being sickly. it's so good that i was actually seriously considering eating it yesterday in the bath. seriously. (i didn't)

so i would definitely recommend this lovely product, as it's perfect for travel and everyday use. it's a definite repurchase!

  1. Ha ha!!! Can I say I absolutely HATE that unwritten rule...there are times I just want nothing more than to play with the goodies!!! But then I feel like I can't because I haven't taken a picture and sometimes don't get around to taking a picture for awhile. Ugh.

    This soap sounds really nice...and it's LUSH!! I love going into LUSH stores...everything smells amazing...yumm!!! Have you tried any of the other body bars?
