Effective But Oh The Stink!

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about LUSH Waylander Rhassoul Soap:

I love LUSH and their many soaps but they are entire too fond of obnoxious scents.

Despite my misgivings resulting from sniffing this bar through its paper wrapper in the store I decided to take a piece home with me and give it a try.

The smell was just overpoweringly bad when I took it out of the wrapper. I figured it would air out and get a little better after a while. It didn't. The horrific patchouli stench just permeated my entire bathroom for days.

I finally decided to suck it up and at least use the soap, even if I wasn't planning to buy it again because of the stink.

I was very pleasantly surprised by its performance! It actually exfoliated nicely, even on the summer toughened soles of my feet.

So, while it does actually work quite nicely, I still cannot recommend it due to the stink. If patchouli doesn't make your eyes water and induce sneezing fits then this may be for you, but if you have a sensitive nose give this a pass.

LUSH Waylander Soap - Getting clean one mud pie at a time.

By 

from Annapolis, MD

Comments about LUSH Waylander Rhassoul Soap:

I have no idea why I bought my bar of **LUSH Waylander soap**. I think it was one of those products they discontinued years ago but brought back as people were raving about it. I'm kind of having a love/hate relationship with it right now.

**LUSH Waylander soap** is quite possibly the oddest soap I've ever used, and if you know me, you know I use a LOT of soap so that's sayin' something. 

So for starters, mine doesn't look like the picture at all.  The picture is from LUSH.com and makes it look like a Jello Pudding pop.  You know, the kind where they swirl the chocolate and vanilla together?  Well if you crammed a stick up my soap, it wouldn't look like that. It's mostly just brown mudpie colored with a small strip of white soap on top like icing.

This soap is made from rhassoul mud which comes from the Atlas Mountains.  It's apparently some sort of Moroccan skin treatment for exfoliating dead skin.  This soap is meant to be used directly on the skin rather than using a washcloth as it has this slightly scratchy pumice infused into the bar that exfoliates really nicely and feels great on the skin. I like to use it on my legs before shaving to get a really good exfoliation.

**So why am I having a love/hate relationship with Waylander soap?  **Well because it's weird.  It smells like I'm washing myself with a mudpie and it turns the water all brown and muddy and it really literally smells like dirt. The first time I used it, I was sure I'd end up throwing it in the trash after the next use. That's the **hate **part.

But here's the **love **part - it leaves behind a nice, light scent that lingers on my skin all day.  I love, love, love bath and body products that leave a pleasant scent on my skin for more than 5 minutes.  Well this is that product.  I have no idea where this lovely scent is during the cleansing process, but it's stuck on me now and I love it.  I showered 12 hours ago and I can still smell it.  

So I'm kind of torn on this one. I thought for sure I'd throw it out but now I find myself enjoying the exfoliation and the after scent so much that I might actually buy this one again!

Great for exfoliation and cleansing.
