Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Rapeseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Pinhead Oatmeal (Avena sativa), Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, Labdanum Resinoid (Cistus labdaniferus), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus sinensis), Sodium Chloride, Limonene.
When you're in a rush on those early mornings you may consider eating breakfast in the shower. At we LUSH prefer feeding our skin in the shower and saving the real food for afterward. We put real oats and fresh organic orange juice in this deliciously nutritious soap, making it a cleansing and exfoliating multi-tasker. Oats soften and slough away dead skin while orange juice and sweet orange oil gently cleanse the skin.

Texture & Scent:
This soap feels more "solid" compared to the two other LUSH ones i've reviewed, but its the worst of the lot when it comes to disappearing in the shower - it melts super quickly!! This foams up nicely once in rubbed with water! The oat bits are horribly rough, and they scratch at my skin so badly that i can even use it as a, yes, you guessed it right, pumice stone!! *slaps forehead* Check out my red palm in the pic!! :(
The oat bits do come off as you rub it against your skin, so it can be messy when using this!
I don't really know how to describe the smell - it's kinda like oats + something sweet, and its quite strong!
This soap comes in a block wrapped in LUSH paper! Mine is a little melted having endured the transit from India to Singapore then back to Penang! lol!! :D
Price & Availability:
This soap is priced at US$5.95 (approx. RM21.42), and should be available at most LUSH stores and their website! It's also available in India for Rs. 310 per 100 grams! :D Sadly, it's not available locally for us Malaysian girls, but Ryan from SgDrugstore at Lowyat.net organizes LUSH sprees sometimes so do take advantage of that if you need to get something! :D
After reading Connie's rave review on this soap, i caved in and bought my 1st ever LUSH bar. I have never considered buying anything from there because 1. I never use soaps and 2. the LUSH store gives me a headache everytime i step in there, from both the overpowering scent as well as the overbearing staff! :P
And i'm almost heartbroken to report that i didn't like this one! T_T
The oat bits in there were super rough, and they scratch at my skin so badly, leaving it red and sore! I've resorted to rubbing it over my scrubby gloves (which is quite damaged by it now!! lol!!) then only soaping my body with it! It works nicely as a pumice stone for the elbows, knees and heels though!! :P
I also didn't like how the oat bits do fall out, creating a mess in the shower! And they kinda look like cockroach poop... :P
The smell of this one is kinda overpowering too!!
Ok enough product bashing for now! As much as i didn't like this because of the reasons above, i'll have to say that it does soften the skin nicely after use!! It also lightens skin darkening like on the knees and underarms gradually!!
I'm of the opinion that this is actually quite a good product, but the rough oat bits totally ruined it for me. Now, if they would remove or change that, i think i actually might change my mind about this product!! Until then, it's a no repurchase for me!! :(
