It sure has been a while since I talked about this amazing brand. I have since had the chance to start using these beautiful soaps! I collect soaps, so that is why it has taken me so long to getting around to these, but here I am so lets get into it.
My first impression on this amazing brand can be found here.
At the moment these are still the only two soaps that I own from Shanghai Lil but I will, without a doubt, be getting more the next time I go shopping. I am sorry but I haven’t taken photos of the soap, so please take my word for it that they are beautiful.
I have now used soap in the scent Riviera Escapade which is described as a Classic Lavender & Citrus scent, I can honestly say that I have never smelt a soap before that has calmed me down in the way this soap has. When I first smelt it, I had been a bit stressed about everyone, after taking a whiff of this I calm right down. Straight away this soap was a winner in my books, from there I knew without a doubt that I would love this soap throughout its use. Of course, I was right, I have almost used this up and I seriously need another one.
I am currently using Winter field which has a Bracing Lavender & Rosemary scent and I find that I am not in love with the scent as much as my first one. This doesn’t mean that I don’t like it though, it’s just when I shop next I will repurchase the first one instead. It has been good trying this one because I had forgotten what it was like when I first opened the packaging! These soaps are amazing the whole way through but you do have to make sure that you keep the soap wet otherwise it can drag/ stick to your skin a little. Nothing serious but something to keep in mind!
Although I love the scent of these soaps, it is not actually my favourite aspect, my favourite part is how much it lathers when I use it. For me, this lathers perfectly, its not too much that I can’t see my skin through it, but it is enough, that when I shave, I know exactly where I have been. When the soap is nearly finished, I have found that it holds its integrity pretty well. By this I mean that even though the soap is almost non-existant, it is still relatively easy to use and get a really nice lather. I have had other soaps in the past where once it got to a certain size it was just not worth my time.
Shanghai Lil’s Cold Pressed Soaps are honestly some of the bests soaps I have used in a long time. I cannot recommend their soaps enough. When I am shopping next I will make sure to try and step out of my Lavender zone. I am hoping that the others are just as good as the first ones I have tried!
