This is the most amazing soap. The scent is incredible, and it is so soft and smooth and creamy. I've never experienced a similar soap. It doesn't dry out my hands, and I also use it as a shower soap. I even leave just a chunk on my bathroom counter to keep the smell around in my bathroom. It lingers on the skin after using the soap as well. This is my favorite soap from Lush, and currently my favorite soap all around (but I switch soaps often). Effectiveness I find that this soap does not dry out my skin, and the scent lingers. The only downside is that the soap is by nature quite soft, and thus gets used up faster than a harder bar of soap would. Scent The scent of this soap is incredible. The Lush description says it has a "dazzling bergamot and olibanum scent," and it's otherwise hard to describe unless you've smelled it for yourself. It is slightly citrusy, but also I pick up some floral notes, but it's absolutely unique!
