Queen of Hearts is one of the few LUSH soaps you can wash your face with. Why? It's gentler on your face than body soaps because it's made with a base of rose petal infusion. (Please don't use our other soaps on your face; they're designed for much stronger skin.) Cocoa butter keeps skin flexible while moisturizing almond and balancing geranium oils make skin soft; the Queen cleans without drying out your face. If you must wash your face with soap, please choose this one.

Texture & Scent:
This soap is quite soft, so be careful not to drop it! It foams up well once rubbed with water. This one rinses clean! :)
The smell is very very strong!! Phewwwww!! There's a really sharp smelling note which i can't really place a finger on what it is, and I didn't really smell the rose note until it was on my face! Thankfully the scent does not linger on your skin long, or i would have fainted from the intensity of it!! *giddy*
This soap comes in a block wrapped in LUSH wax paper! :D Since this soap is quite soft, it really make sense to cut it into smaller pieces, use the small piece and leave the rest in the container in the fridge like Plue did with her Coalface soap! :)
My feels really clean for a few hours after using this one! :D
Price & Availability:
This soap is priced at US$6.95 (approx. RM25.72), and should be available at most LUSH stores and their website! Sadly, i think this one's not available in India though! :(
The wonderful Plue gave me a generous chunk of this one to try! :D
The first thing that strikes me is the smell! Poooohhh!! It's really really strong!! And where's the rose scent?!! lol!! Whenever i think of rose scents, i think of the sweet warm smell from Lovely Lace (lol!) or the Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater series which i love! This one's definitely different, but i DO smell a hint of rose when i applied it on my face!! Like i said above, thankfully the strong scent does not linger long on my skin, otherwise i think i might just pass out everytime i use this! lol!! :D
Other than that, i have nothing but praises for this little soap bar! It cleanses nicely for me (do check out Plue's review on this one though, it didn't work quite as well for her in the evenings after a long day out!) without leaving my face feel tight! In fact, my face feels really soft and moisturized! It did brighten my face too!! :D
Alas, i cannot get over how strong the scent is!! Lush if you're reading this, please tone down the scent, and i'll be repurchasing this one again and again! :D Until then, it's a no-repurchase for me!
