My take on the product


Lush Bohemian soap is mild citrus based soap with a prominent lemon scent. Like all Lush soaps, it doesn’t come with a container of its own, you need to purchase one from Lush or you can keep it any container with holes so that no water collects as Lush soaps tend to dissolve fast in water. The soap looks quite interesting and attractive – its a mild corally yellow color with some patterning inside.

It doesn’t dissolve too fast with water so one can directly use this on the body like regular soaps. The scent is not too strong or overpowering – just a like veil of lemon freshness that fades away quickly. I’d actually hoped the scent was a little stronger. It lathers with water decently but not too much. It leaves the clean, soft and smooth though not dry. I wouldn’t recommend this one fro dry skinned woman – Lush has many other options for dry skin types like Honey I washed the Kids. Overall its a very simple soap, no exfoliating bits or super fast dissolution.

If I had to describe the scent in 2 words – it would be lemon and clean. If you like clean light citrus scents, you will love this one. It is refreshing and perfect for the spring/summer!

Overall Verdict


Lush Bohemian Soap  is a clean lemon based soap which lathers decently with water to leave the skin clean, soft and refreshed. The scent is mild and fades away rather quickly. I personally like a little stronger scent so its a con for me while it may be a good thing for some people.
