Review: Lush Love soap

The Lush Love soap totally took over my Instagram a little while ago. It seemed that right after the US Supreme Court ruled that state bans on same sex marriage were illegal, the Lush Love soap exploded.  Obviously, I needed to buy it!

Lush has had several products called “Love” or something similar. This product may be better known as the #GayIsOK soap!  I love the #GayIsOK hashtag, I love the golden glitter, and I love that Lush is supporting LGBT rights!

What it does: (from the Lush website)

Lather up and love your skin with our palm free soap base, scented with the iconic Love fragrance. Love the LGBT community and the campaign group All Out, when money from your purchase funds grassroots campaign groups around the world. But before you get your bar wet, show your love online by posting a Love Soap selfie to say that you think #GayIsOk!

Price: $5.95 for 4.2 oz in the US, 650 JPY for 120g in Japan

Scent:  I read another review which called the scent “a rich, full-bodied citrus”, which I completely agree with.  It smells like citrus zest but much fuller and earthier, like bergamot and cinnamon.

Availability: This soap is available at Lush and Lush Online. Surprisingly, I could not find it on the Lush UK website.


  • I LOVE the scent.
  • I love the cause
  • The golden glitter is biodegradable and does not get everywhere
  • the product is vegan!
  • This soap creates a creamy lather, which did not strip my skin.


  • Although I know that all Lush products use biodegradable glitter, I felt uncomfortable using this to wash my face, in case it got in my eyes.

Would I repurchase?  Yes, I wish this product were permanent!  I really liked the scent of this product, and I loved how the glitter made it look!

Hope you enjoyed this review!
