LOVE soap; #GayisOK

   In 76 countries it is illegal to be part of the LGBTQIA identity, so LUSH Cosmetics recently ran a campaign fueled by love, and the hashtag #GayisOK... Launched the day before marriage equality spread throughout the US, it seems LUSH creators magically knew the day was coming.
   This limited edition soap is fittingly titled LOVE soap, and scented like the FizzBanger bath bomb! (Which came as a surprise to many, it seems.) A scent that lights up a room, but I'm sure the mass amount of sparkles in this product help it shine as well.

"Snap a selfie with your LOVE soap and let the world know that #GayisOK!"

   When I woke up the morning of the release, I found the USA site was already sold out! (Restocked the next day, go figure!) I ordered my bar from the UK site, so mine arrived a bit later than usual... This product is SO much more than I was expecting, and I'm hoping to grab another bar before they're completely sold out.
   As expected, after washing up with this soap I was left shimmering! LOVE soap not only has gold dusting on the top (which can be easily washed off), but also throughout the product... Not only that, but I was blown away at how moisturizing this bar wound up being, and how fragrant my skin was left after rinsing off.
   If Fizzbanger is a frequent in your LUSH stash like it is in mine, you are no stranger to the beautiful notes of cinnamon leaf oil... But the moment I opened the package, I was hit with a burst of scent that is three times stronger than the bath bomb (in a good way)! The ylang ylang oil and oak moss extract compliment the cinnamon leaf oil beautifully, and you're left with an uplifting and almost zesty fragrance that lasts.
   The bar itself is silky and creamy to the touch, with a coconut oil base, so I'm not sure why I was SO surprised at how soft my skin felt afterwards. Not only was I left feeling like a goddess, thanks to the sparkling silky skin, but also completely clean! Which, if you know "fancy soaps" well enough, you also know that sometimes you aren't left feeling very clean at all (or like there is a dragging effect on your skin).
   I'm giving LOVE soap a 4.5/5! The scent is gorgeous, and so is the working power of the product; mixed with the other items in my lushie stash, it is a bit much for me on my migraine prone days... I'm thoroughly impressed with this wonderful product, and commend LUSH Cosmetics for this recent campaign. Head to the LUSH USA site to snag what is left of this limited edition soap!
