Angel's Delight Soap

Angel's Delight is part of the Christmas range at Lush so it's only available for a couple of months of the year. So whilst I gush and drool over the brilliance of this product, hold steady in the knowledge that you will no doubt be able to get your greedy little mitts on this again in a few months time. 

Angel's Delight is a beautiful multi coloured soap, comprised of random blocks of colours, silver glitter, gold glitter, iridescent glitter and a lovely gold lustre – you never know just what your slice is going to look like. To look at it, you might describe it as a feast for the eyes. And it really is. Not to mention that it  smells incredible as well. But we'll get to that in a second...

Lush tend to release two sorts of products at Christmas; those that incorporate the spicy smells of the season, and those that encompass the sweet side; Angel's Delight definitely falls into the sweet section. With sweet orange essential oil, tangerine oil and a fruity fragrance, this creates a sweet jelly bean scent combined with blackcurrant. It reminds me of jelly babies, tangerines and tutti fruities all mixed together!

As I cut and store my Lush soap's carefully, I am nsure whether this is a soap that melts away quickly if left to it's own devices. The 100g bar I purchased lasted for over 5 weeks, which makes it incredible value for money. 
Angel’s Delight lathered up quite nicely for me, contrary to other people's experiences, and It does not dry out the skin as is the case with most soaps, with the fragrance staying on your skin for a really long time afterwards.

The only downside I found with this soap, is that I found the strips of silver foil to be rather detrimental to the soap's use. A few times whilst lathering up in the shower, I'd find my hands scratched by the edges of silver foil that would stick out of the soap as it shrunk through use. 
However, the intoxicating scent it releases in the shower is incredible, and has definitely cemented itself as one of my favourite Lush scents. If only they would bring this out in shower gel, body lotion or perfume form! A definite possible rival for the Snow Fairy crown.
