Lush Description: Waylander Rhassoul is a soap for preparing bodies for adventure, especially if theyve not seen daylight for a while. What they need is a lovely, clay based soap made with Rhassoul Mud from the Atlas Mountains, a traditional Moroccan skin and scalp treatment which works marvels on troubled skin – perfumed with earthy patchouli oil, with pumice powder mixed in so when the Rhassoul mud washes away the dirt youre left with a hard, rocky centre of ground pumice to scrub away rough skin. Use it on feet, hands, elbows and knees (especially before using fake tan). At this point you start up a new, soft, creamy, muddy bar and youll find that your skin has already transformed itself magically from dull to bright.
Review: This soap is the epitome of an ‘Earthy’ smell. Rasshoul smells of rich earth. Men would love this. And I love it. It’s a comforting and grounding scent.
This soap used to be called ‘Middle Earth Turns to Rock’. But they changed the name in 2008 after one of my fellow forum members held in high esteem, Simon, ‘Waylander’ was his forum name. He made his own armor.
Earth and Patchouli is exactly what this smells like. It’s gritty from the pumice bits so it’s good for exfoliating. This is also a good male scent. I have a love/hate relationship with Middle Earth, sometimes I gotta have it and sometimes not, but I gotta give it props for doing what it says and for being interesting to look at and it was rabidly popular in it’s day.
Lush Times 2005 description:At first waylander soap has the texture of smooth mud pies, the kind you made at the with your bucket and spade as a kid; the kaolin and rhassoul mud make it a wonderful, deep cleansing scrub, excellent for getting out engine oil, garden earth and paint. As you use it up you are left with more of the pumice powder and magically it turns into a bar of Rock soap; use Rock for scrubbing and smoothing your feet, elbows and really rough bits. Waylander has an earthy, spicy scent of an Arabian soukh; take advantage of its eastern magic to get your hands and feet their cleanest ever.
