When I first tried a whipped soap I just didn’t get it. Surely you would use a bar of soap, shower gel or foam bath of some description? So a whipped soap? Really? When I got a small sample I threw it in the bath thinking it would somehow turn into a multi purpose body wash. That didn’t work. So not impressed with how it performed, I forgot all about it. Cue to getting my hands on a full size and actually using it properly it was a game changer for me, and I have been in love whipped soaps ever since.
If you’re not too sure what a whipped soap is, its exactly what it sounds like. Whipped and fluffy soap to wash your body with. All of the whipped soaps so far I’ve bought and tried from one of my favourite small businesses Lolly & Moo. So when they made and released Crystal Whipped soap last year I HAD to try it.
Appearance. One word…STUNNING! This whipped soap comes in a clear jar so you can see exactly what you are getting. Lilac in colour, and literally piped into its packaging giving an edible ice cream look. Sprinkled with dark purple mica pigment, gold and silver glitter and tiny silver stars. And how could I forget the semi precious stone placed on the top like that very important cherry on a cake? This whipped soap could easily be THAT cake you dribble over while passing counters selling delicious cakes and pastries in your favourite supermarkets, restaurants or cake shops.
Texture. Airy, light but has a good thickness to it so easy to use and feels very luxurious. If you could use a body butter to wash with that had been whipped to an inch of its life, this is how I would describe the texture of this.
Scent. Inspired by a well known fragrance, this SMELLS like a perfume! First thing I pick up on is floral. Its not a strong floral but definitely a fresh one. Hint of citrus ( slight ), sweetness and lastly a little musk which gives it that depth. Its a gorgeous fragrance, easy and pleasant to smell and just the right strength.
How to use & its performance. When I say you don’t need much you really don’t. An amount the size of the tip of you finger placed on a sponge/flannel/whatever you wash with, is ample and with warm water will foam up beautifully. It’s like bathing in something that you should actually be using as a body lotion. Cleans the skin without drying it, and gives it that hit of moisture thanks to ingredients such as apricot kernel oil.
Recommend? Oh my goodness YES! It does what its supposed to do which is to clean the skin, but its so much more special than that in regards to its look, the enjoyment while using it and it keeping your skin in great condition. You will see me use this phrase ALOT as we don’t all have a massive budget to pamper ourselves, but this truly is affordable luxury at its best! Available on the Lolly & Moo website from the 1st March 2019 at 9pm. Each 140g jar of goodness costs £8.50. Oh yes….did I mention there is a Crystal Bath Bomb too?
