Apandapand Soap Bar

  Cleansing? Definitely. Juicy? You bet. Toning? Oh yeah... LUSH Oxford Street's exclusive Apandapand soap is a revisited classic of A Pound A Pound soap that gives you the whole fruit, no doubt!
   When LUSH says they put the entire fruit into a products, they mean it! You can find tons of "the making of" videos on LUSH YouTube channels that prove you're not missing one bit of an ingredient in a product... And Apandapand is citrusy proof.

"Roll up, roll up. It's easy peasy lemon squeezy to clean up your act with this citrusy grapefruit soap. Lather up and take a stroll through a bustling morning market, sharp with the scent of fresh fruit."
   When I purchased Apandapand, I wasn't sure exactly how it would look. I was hoping for some sort of pink, like many grapefruit products, and I was far from disappointed! When I unwrapped the soap to find a beautiful, creamy, pink bar, I was ecstatic.
   It's scent was delicate inside the wrapping, but once out it was heavy and sharp. Even sitting on my shower cabby, it filled my bathroom with it's fragrance.. Fresh grapefruit juice, grapefruit oil, and Sicilian lemon oil leave this soap packing quite a punch! Even with all the cleansing and toning power of Apandapand's citrus, it leaves your skin hydrated thanks to the coconut oil... Once you've lathered up with this pretty, pink soap you'll notice it definitely gets you squeaky clean without that dragging feeling on your skin. The lather, while extremely creamy, is a more unpleasant color (not that I expected vibrancy) that showed Apandapand was getting rid of any gunk on my body.
   As usual, I tested this soap out for shaving. Apandapand did a decent job but I wouldn't recommend shaving with this soap if you have sensitive skin in any way... Also, when cutting it into halves, it was a total breeze! My knife I use only for cutting my LUSH products went through the bar smoother than any other soap in the past.
   Although this soap doesn't beat out my regular grapefruit favorite, Happy Hippy shower gel, I'm still glad I snagged a bar. I give Apandapand soap a 3/5, and if it ever comes to US stores I'll consider purchasing another slice.
