Can you believe that I actually wait a whole year before reviewing this soap because I thought it was a limited-edition product for Christmas, but I only realized today that it is actually available year round - or is it? Maybe it is because LUSH seems to categorize it under the Christmas product list when it's actually not... weird and confusing! Because of that, I have found myself associating it with the colder weather, and thus, Christmas. Please tell me if I'm wrong?
Angel's Delight is beautiful with its rainbow of colors, although each piece looks different based on where your cut of the chunk came from - my chunk is mostly pink without glitters - but in the store, it was gorgeous with the gold frame surrounding the big block of soap.
I am not sure I understand why so many people complain about Angel's Delight smelling like plastic or cough syrup - it has an absolutely sweet and mouth-wathering scent to me, a bit like fruit candies or fruit punch! I personally don't find Angel's Delight to be overpowering but maybe it's just too sweet for some?
Many people seem to find this soap drying, but even with my dry and eczema-prone skin, I did not notice Angel's Delight to be more drying than my usual soaps or shower gels, although I would not say it is moisturizing either. It lathers very well but as with all LUSH soaps, it melts very quickly, so I would suggest to cut a piece and keep the rest away from water.
Angel's Delight is available for $5.95 for 3.5 oz at LUSH.
