Have you ever wondered what the scent in a particular horror film or of a specific character would be (besides blood, fear and rotting flesh) or wanted to smell like you had just fallen out of the film itself? Now thanks to Lathyrus Soaps on Etsy, you can; the store offers a range of bath products such as bath bombs, body butters, wax melts, face masks, shower gels, makeup brush cleaners, lip scrubs, soaps, body mists, body lotions, body scrubs and mystery boxes, all of which are inspired by some of the most prolific genre films and characters.
Lathyrus Soaps is out of Bloomington, Indiana. All of the products are made from natural material and are super affordable for the quality you receive (more on that later, mini product review further down). Prices range from $4 to $20 with an average price of $8 which when compared to big store names is more than a decent price range.
A new body butter scent was announced via the store’s social media inspired by everyone’s favorite bioexorcist called “The Ghost With The Most” (scented with coconut and lime with a hint of vanilla). I for one cannot wait for my order to arrive.
Mini Product Reviews
I have personally tried 5 products from Lathyrus Soaps (still have a face mask to try and another body butter on the way) and have loved every single one of them. Below is a small review of each product I have tried as well as a discount code if you would like to try any of them or any of the other amazing products offered.
*Disclaimer*: Some of these products were sent to me to test out and I am a brand representative, but all reviews are 100% my true opinions of the products as I would not back products I truly did not feel were of quality.
You’ll Float Too Body Butter
Inspired by: Stephen King’s IT
Scented with: Cotton Candy, Caramel Apples and Funnel Cakes
Review: Scent is strong and long lasting without being overbearing (when applying in the morning, it lasts the majority of the day and when applying at night, I can still smell it in the morning). Smell given is true to the scent description (while wearing it, on more than one occasion I had people say “what smells so good” and “I smell caramel/maple syrup, I don’t know what it is but it smells really good” as I’ve walked by them). After applying it, my skin has a beautiful glow (not Twilight vampire shimmer but healthy looking glow) and it feels soft all day.
Cabin In The Woods Body Butter
Inspired by: The Cabin in the Woods
Scented with: Crisp Leaves, Musk, Bergamot, Clove and Vanilla
Review: Scent lasting power and effect are the same as above. All of the elements blend together nicely and give almost a lily of the valley scent. This is my personal favorite so far.
The Teen Dream Body Butter
Inspired by: Jawbreaker (Courtney more specifically)
Scented with: Cherry Blossom and Peach (dupe for VS Love Spell)
Review: Scent is listed as being a dupe for VS’ Love Spell, it truly is, but I personally feel that it smells a bit better than Love Spell and is literally half the price (it also lasts longer). The green and pink/purple color swirl makes the product look as beautiful as it smells (a lot like candy).
Camp Blood Body Butter
Inspired by: Friday the 13th franchise
Scented with: Patchouli, lavender, lily and lime
Review: Patchouli can be a little overbearing, but not in this case, it blends so well with the other scents that it is hardly noticeable. It has a clean scent while smelling like a refreshing day at the lake running for your life (without the sweat and fear smells).
Rules of Halloween Lip Scrub
This is one of the products I was sent and is not currently listed on the store page, so I cannot say what it is scented with or link it for purchase. It smells a bit like candy corn and while using it, it tastes a bit like candy at first with a hint of cinnamon that lasts on the lips. My lips are super soft and the color is even improved after using.
