Pros: Smell, lasting power, price
Cons: lather, cheap smell when you use it in shower
On my first Lush order ever, I knew I would be receiving free samples. I was hoping for honey I washed the kids, and sexy peel.
Instead one of my samples was a decent sized piece of Angels Delight glycerin soap.
It was a soap I wouldnt have bought on my own without that sample incentive. For one, I hate glycerin soaps, theyre slippery, they melt fast, and theyre messy. Then when I saw the sharp edged star glitter throughout the soap, I knew it was not for me.
However I instantly fell in love with Angels Delight; I could smell an inviting scent of something fruity right through the clear wrap.
I knew that this one sample piece would probably last through only one shower, as glycerin soaps melt fast.
Not only that its from Lush, and rumor has it a lot of their soaps melt fast, glycerin or not.
The piece I got was pink. It showed no traces of purple in it, or any spots of star glitter like it shows on the website at www.Lush.com. Seeing how lush cuts pieces from a large block, you never really know what you are going to get. You may end up with a purple piece with no stars, a pink piece with too many stars. For me, it makes the order all the more exciting.
The scent smells just like fruit punch when you first smell it. It is not overpowering like some other Lush soap, nor is it too weak.
I know that Lush soaps tend to come to life in all their glory once they hit warm water, so I was really excited to see what would blossom from my Angels Delight bar.
SPILSH SPLASH I WAS TAKIN A BATH
I didnt wait longer than 10 minutes after opening my Lush order to run to the shower to give this sample a try.
Angels Delight worked magic in my shower, I was instantly in love with its fruity scent, and yes it did get a little stronger once it hit the water.
However after a good scrubbing I realized it smelled just like generic fruit punch powdered drink mix. It wasnt awful, but it surely didnt smell like fresh fruit. The smell also wasnt horrible; I still liked it, but was disappointed how it no longer smelled the way it did when I first smelled it.
Angels Delight fails miserably in the lather department. It really took a lot of scrubbin n rubbin to get suds to form, and they dont really last. Even though the lather was a miss, I still felt clean, so I was happy.
I was happy to report that the soap lasted for the entire shower; it was not something I was expecting. I figured once this hit the water it would evaporate before my eyes.
Im also happy to report that even though this is a glycerin soap, I didnt drop it once. Maybe I was just lucky, but the soap itself wasnt too slippery.
This is where Angels Delight picks up the bad and makes it right. Once I dried off, I could smell the sweet subtle fruity scent, and this time it smelled fruity, not like powdered drink. So I liked it 100% again.
The best part for me was how this fruit punchy scent stayed with me for at least 3 hours after using only a sample. I was sold; I knew I would be purchasing this with my next order, which will be occurring right after I finish this up. Haha!
Sadly though Angels Delight didnt add much moisture to my skin, as a matter of fact my skin felt dry and thirsty afterwards.
HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF LUSH:
I would recommend if you order or purchase any soaps from Lush that you cut the bar up into sample sized pieces. Its really all you need, and one 3.5 oz bar can get you at least 7 or 8 separate showers. Once you have all of your pieces cut up, I would recommend putting the rest in a cool dry place, or better yet the refrigerator.
HOW MUCH? WHERE CAN I GET IT?
Angels Delight cost $6.65 for a 3.5oz bar. Its actually a cheap soap from Lush, where other soaps usually run in the $7.00 plus category. You can find Angels Delight at any local Lush store, or if you are unfortunate like me (sigh), you are forced to order it from the site not knowing what the soap will actually smell like. Its really a gamble for us online buyers, but the surprise is fun nonetheless.
I just wish the shipping charges were fair. Lush charges about $8 for shipping on one soap, if you order more the shipping rate is the same. $8.
Its not fair to charge me $8 for shipping on one soap, and $8 for 3. If I want to order just one it should be cheaper. Scandalous!
Angel's Deligh is $6.65, which is reasonable. Slap on an addition $8 for shipping, and you're not so happy anymore.

I love Angels Delight; the scent reminds me of hot summer days and picnics with plastic cups of fruit punch and the juice mustaches young children walk around with as if its a new fashion statement.
Its really a playful scent, and the scent lasts. I was surprised it did because the soap itself didnt smell overpowering. Usually I only expect overpowering soaps to last on my skin.
This is also definitely a girly scent. But you could use it on young children as well. Boy or girl, children will enjoy this scent.
