I was absolutely gutted to find out that my favourite bubble bar, Dorothy, has been discontinued when Lush had a product revamp recently! However I knew that their soap Figs and Leaves was supposed to be of the same fragrance so all is not lost!
I had known about Figs and Leaves soap for ages but it took me a while to buy it because it definitely doesn't look anywhere near as exciting as other products in the shop and also smelling it in store I couldn't smell anything! I decided just to go for it and try it out as I had a gift card but even then it sat in my soap jar for ages until a couple of weeks ago I decided to break it out.
It honestly smells amazing, exactly like Dorothy! I had to stop using it until it dried so I could take photos of it ha, so now I can use it again yay!! The scent is of figs, ylang ylang and orange flower which is a sort of earthy, floral combination. It's also slightly exfoliating because of the leaves and fig seeds which is great.
I use it in the shower on my body but I am considering getting one to use as hand soap - I am swithering though as liquid soap is much less messy! It doesn't contain SLS and has softening aloe vera and coconut oil which I think would be good for my hands, so we shall see! It actually says online that it's delicate enough to use on your face but I would personally avoid that!
Having a look at it on their website [link], it's got a new formula so looks slightly different now, I will need to buy another block and see if it's any better than before. It's £3.40 for 100g which is fairly average price for Lush soaps. Also this formulation is vegan.
I'm so glad I finally decided to get this and will definitely try the new formula once this one is finished.
Have you got a favourite soap from Lush?
