Product Review: LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell Soap and Body Wash

Monday, October 05, 2015

    Do you consider bath time as your 'me time' and it excites you to try your favorite soap? Some women consider bath time not only as pamper time at home but also a time of relaxation and luxury. Yes, luxury because this is the time where we apply the skin care products that we consider effective and precious. I'm a fan of whitening and anti-aging soaps but when a mysterious brand of soap that looks so promising is whispering in my ears to try it, I usually give in.

     If you're a long time follower of this blog, I presume you already know that I have a very sensitive nose. The fragrance of the soap either make or break into my list of highly recommended products. Too much scent always give me a nauseous feeling while using the product BUT something magical happened 2 nights ago.

Product Review: LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell Soap and Body Wash
     I received a pretty purple pouch containing a bar of soap and a bottle of body wash. I was intrigued because the scent lingered in my room where I've placed the purple pouch. So to feed my curious nose, I tried the soap immediately that night and oh, something fragrant that's pleasantly magical lingered inside the bathroom too. So without further ado, let me introduce to you LUX Magical Spell. More details about the product below :)

The new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection 

     offers a selection of four different perfumed body washes and three perfumed bar soaps.

Exquisitely crafted with fragrance pearls, LUX Magical Spell infuses skin with up to 8 hours of lasting perfume. 

      Masterfully designed and crafted by perfume experts from New York, Paris, and London, the new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is now in the Philippines to enable Filipinas to feel fabulously feminine, as they leave a lasting and unforgettable impression wherever they go.

Product Review: LUX Magical Spell
LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell body wash and soap
     Master perfumer Nicole Mancini helped design this irresistible fragrance with the unabashedly feminine woman in mind. Featuring an intense and alluring blend of dark woods, golden amber and vanilla bean that come to life in every bath, Magical Spell unlocks a woman’s bold side, leaving her feeling more beautiful and confident than ever. 

     By the way, I'm sure that you will have mixed reaction why I made the review this quick. Well, this soap is not a whitening nor an anti-aging soap so no need to see effects in two or three weeks time. This is a fine fragrance soap- a luxurious soap that's intended to leave skin smooth and fragrant. After using it for two days, I can say that the soap's scent is so nice that I don't want to wash the lather on my skin.

Product Review: LUX Magical Spell
LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell soap- look at the embossed floral touch :)

What I like:
  • The soap and body wash comes in a luxurious packaging.
  • There's an embossed floral design on the sides of the bar soap making the soap feel and look feminine and luxurious.
  • The price- very affordable.
  • It's a 2-in-1 product, you get a bar of soap and perfume in one bar or body wash.
  • The scent- it's divine!
  • Both produce a good lather.
  • My skin felt soft and smooth to touch after using the product.
  • The scent lingers on my skin for more than 6 hours.
  • No allergic reaction, irritation, or whatsoever.
  • It's easy to rinse.
  • The NEW LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is available in four captivating scents. Choose your favorite from Magical Spell, White Impress, Soft Touch and Love Forever.
  • There's a manufacturing and expiry date printed on the packaging.
  • Easily accessible.
  • No need to travel abroad just to get a hold of this fine fragrance bars and body washes.

What I don't like:
  • None so far!

Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm itching to try the remaining 3 variants :)

     I give this a 4.75/5. If you want a soap that smells like you're wearing perfume, then you should try this. It's affordable and gives a luxurious bath. What made me highly recommend this is the scent as it lingers more than 6 hours on my skin even if I sweat. No need to spray your perfume, you'll be addicted sniffing your skin! 

     When I was in the dialysis center a while ago, my father asked me why I'm sniffing my arms over and over again. I said that I used LUX Magical Spell and it's a skin perfume. He got curious and will let him try just to make him believe that it's the LUX Fine Fragrance soap that gave my skin a luscious smell.

  1. Ganda nung soap! I have dropped by Watsons to smell the new Lux line. TBH, I'm still nostalgic over the original Lux line from the 90's that I used to be loyal to as a kid. (My favorite was the gold/yellow one!) Naturally, I prefer the old line, but maybe that's just me being sentimental. The new releases smell good, though.

    1. Hi Marielle,

      Yup, I have a penchant on pretty details especially with cosmetic products. I forgot the old line of LUX and can't recall the scent of the old soaps. The new ones smell nice too.

  2. i love using lux soap also, my father always bring it from saudi arabia..i was so in love with the fragrance of all variant of LUX..this new one i haven't tried yet but i will buy this soon..sayang hindi naka abot sa sample bilis naubos eh..

    1. Hi Leny,

      Wow, yup this brand is one of the favorites ng mga Saudi nationals. They love perfumes kasi so this brand is super hit sa kanila. Oh, sayang naman :( Sana mag bigay pa sila ng free samples in the future.

  3. I love their embossed floral design at mabango siya. I remember when i was a kid, gustong-gusto ng Mom ko ang Lux soap dahil sa mabango siya sa skin. Thanks for your review.

    1. Hi Hershey,

      Yup, the embossed floral design is pretty. Parang naka-hinayang gamitin kasi masisira. Haha! My pleasure :)

  4. Sadly, Hindi rin ako umabot sa sample registration :( di bale I'll buy nalang kasi I read a lot of Positive Blog Reviews about the Lux Soaps! ♥♥♥

    1. Hi Haidee,

      Aww, sana magrestock sila ng new samples.

  5. I love Magical spell body wash. Still trying to figure out which perfume smells similar to this. :(( I wish they have a perfume version for this

    1. Hi Jessica,

      Thanks for sharing your experience. They have perfume version for this but I think it's exclusive for event attendees. I have the perfume versions but it's a sample bottle only.

  6. sadly the scent does not stay for even an hour :(

    1. Hello,

      Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. I guess it still depends on our skin. Meron sa iba matagal mag last ang scent.

  7. Love the Shampoo and Conditioner. Smells great and does not dry out my hair. (BLACKWOOD FOR MEN)
