    Little Lux-uries – Ignite the Spark with Lux Soft Touch Soap and Body Wash

    December 9, 2015

    As the year winds down, it’s time to give yourself a special, luxurious treat that will ignite your senses and leave you feeling in the mood for love!

    Lux Soft Touch is a beautiful, affordable collection of soap and body wash, infused with fine fragrance, centred around florals and the timeless allure of French rose.


    To create the beautiful Soft Touch collection that looks every bit the luxurious treat (without the price tag), Lux partnered with Master Perfumer Calice Becker – a well know industry nose, who has created some award-winning fragrances over the past two decades.

    “Wearing a fine fragrance is part of an important ritual that starts with a bath or shower” says Calice, who designed this collection with the intention to help you keep the spark ignited…

    I got to try out both the soap and body wash, and if you’re looking for affordable luxury and a real bath time treat, you’ll want to get your pretty paws on these.


    First up, the magnificent Soft Touch soap bar, available in two size variants; 100grams for R5.99 or the 175 gram bar for R11.99.

    It’s an affordable luxury you can have every day!

    From the moment you unwrap the pretty packaging, you’re welcomed with a delightful rose infused sensation that continues to ignite your senses as you lather up and indulge in this treat.

    Soft on the body, this soap transforms your bath time routine into a romantic ritual.

    The embossed print on these bars is also a work of art, with delicate corners of mesh and rose print adorning the edges.

    So pretty!


    Also in this collection is the Soft Touch Body Wash – a delicate, smouldering body wash that lathers up to an indulgent creamy texture.

    Personally, I’m both a soap and body wash kinda girl, it just depends on my mood really, but this body wash is the ideal treat to keep in your shower caddy or take it with you on your December holiday, to ensure you wind down with a little Lux.

    It’s available in three size variants; 200ml for R21.99, 400ml for R34.99 or the 750ml bottle for R39.99.

    A little goes a long way with this body wash, but I would suggest getting the bigger variant. Not only does it work out more cost effective, but trust me when I say it’s so indulgent, you’ll want to keep on lathering it on!

    And why not? It’s packed with skin softening ingredients that leave you feeling like a million dollars.


    Try them out and see for yourself just how affordable luxury can be.
