A Scrumptious, Not-Too-Sweet Soap

A Scrumptious, Not-Too-Sweet Soap featured image
I thoroughly enjoy the holidays because typically, that’s when I can look forward to the release of some of the very sweetest scents of the year. My bath and body products are filled with rich chocolates, decadent berries, and fresh citrus flavors. Occasionally, I’ll crave something not so sweet. Sometimes, it’s a challenge to find a product which doesn’t dry my skin out or leave me smelling like the male persuasion. One of those items which I’ve been lucky to come across is Figs and Leaves bar soap made by LUSH.

This contains fresh figs, aloe vera, and what I think are the seeds from figs . It smells pretty darn good, but maybe that’s because LUSH put in orange blossom (this induces happy feelings) and ylang ylang oils (this appeals to your amorous side).

Even in the driest winter weather, Figs and Leaves, doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry It doesn’t allow me to skip over the after-shower body moisturizing process, however that’s not what my expectations were when I purchased this product I just wanted a new scent that didn’t dry me out. I got just that but with the extra added bonus of happy and amorous feelings.

If you have experience with LUSH products, then you know that some of their soaps tend to melt quicker than others. Figs and Leaves does not fall into that category. Also, even though there is a giant fig leaf at one end of your soap, and fig seeds sprinkled throughout your bar hunk, I can guarantee you that you won’t find odd pieces and parts in the floor of your shower. I don’t know how LUSH did it, but their odd combination seems to evenly shrink with continued use without falling apart into disgusting bits.
