Fangirls, we know how I feel about Lush. I think it’s a phenomenal company with a great message (vegan, cruelty free products). That’s fantastic, and as an added bonus, Lush ships items with a free sample item as well! Recently, I got a package that included the Miranda soap in a sample size.
When I first opened up the Miranda soap I wasn’t really sure what it smelled like; I just knew that I liked it. When I looked it up on Lush’s site, I found that it was kiwi scented, with kiwi seeds in it for exfoliation.
Since the Miranda soap was just a sample, it lasted only 5 showers, but they were great ones. I was really stressed out, and when I stress, I break out on my chest and shoulders. Thanks to the Miranda soap, my break out was pretty brief, and all of the zits (even the ones I picked at) were gone by the fifth wash. I really appreciated that, because nothing adds stress like zits, which leads to more zits, and it’s one awful cycle.
On the not so great side, I was not a fan of the seeds in my soap. At first they were no problem, but as the soap was rubbed away and the seeds became more prominent, they became too abrasive. I understand that exfoliation is an important part of skincare, but this was borderline painful, and I’m not into that.
Other than that, using the Miranda soap sample was awesome. It was a fruity, fresh soap with a lovely scent and did wonders for my skin. I’m not sure if I’ll be picking it up anytime soon (only because of my skin’s sensitive), but it may work well on feet, elbows, and other rough areas.
