Lush Porridge soap retails for $7 for 100 grams.
The soap has a very sweet scent (I like it very much) and it contains a lot of oats. In fact, there is more oats than the actual soap so you can expect it will spend quickly. In order to avoid this, I have cut the soap in several smaller pieces (each piece is approximately 2,5cm*5cm and 0,5cm thick)
I have purchased it primarily for the oats pieces, hoping that it will work fine as a gentle exfoliator. However, the oats pieces are too big to exfoliate. In the end, I ended up with an irritated and scratched skin. The fact that this soap is very drying didn’t help, too. My skin was very dried out.
The soap doesn’t lather well – as I’ve mentioned there is too much oats. Also, the product is very messy – the oats from the soap will end up everywhere.
I’ll probably use up the rest of the soap on the feet, but no more Lush soaps for me.
