LUSH Soaps – A new experiment

Hey Everyone,

I want to start off first by saying this by no means was my own idea! I came across this, like all great ideas, while browsing the internet. But I loved it so much that I had to do it myself and I thought I would share the idea with you as well!

Personally, I know there I times where I feel like I am just blasting through my LUSH soaps, which honestly discourages me from purchasing them, as they can get expensive. The idea I came across was the cut the blocks into smaller pieces, which hopefully means I can get more uses out of the block. But also means I can change the scent regularly, which I think is a nice bonus. Whether the soaps do last longer or not I will let you know down the track, as I have currently listened these soaps in my Buying and Finishing Products 2017 spread, but I am going to mark down the date I cut these as I plan to use them right away!

Cutting up the blocks was a lot easier then I expected, but that could be because it was a warm day, and the red soap in particular, cut like butter (which was actually a little scary, considering I was using a butchers knife). I don’t have a specific knife in mind to recommend, but I would suggest using an older one that maybe doesn’t get as much love in the kitchen. I know its soap and you can just wash it off, but it still just seems weird to me to use the same knife that you would then cook with!

I cut up all my pieces in various shapes and sizes, some pieces were determined by how big the original piece was. Others are because I got mildly carried away and cut them small. I will be interested to see how long a piece lasts at this size. But I am excited as the idea of working through all these soaps.

If you are curious the soaps I cut up are:
Respect Your Elders
Figs & Leaves
Bohemian
(Don’t know the name of the last one, but it looked like a UK Post box)

I would love to see how you store your soaps! I am a mild collector and would love to see how you store yours!
