Literary Lip Balms

Lady of The Lake Soap Bar


A tranquil blend of eucalyptus and ylang-ylang with a hint of citrus.

The story: Imagine the first light of morning and mist drifting over a mystical lake; an enchantress waiting by the shore to change a man's destiny. The cool blend of eucalyptus, soft florals and bergamot will clear your mind, refresh your body and lift your spirits. 

The product: A gentle and cleansing bar soap for your entire body. Work up a lather and bask in the clean, rejuvenating scent.

All our soaps are made in small batches and contain a high amount of organic olive oil and luxurious shea and cocoa butter, which leaves your skin feeling soft and supple after use. Due to the nature of handmade soap, there are slight variations between the designs of each bar.

    I honestly kept imagining myself sitting by a lake, being all mysterious.

    I've been pondering what to write as the soap description truly says it all, haha. It's a delightful scent that surrounds you like a cloak of mystery and wonder. What I adore in Vy's soap is her scent palettes and how well-rounded they are. They don't overpower yet subtly linger on your skin and it's just beautiful. You can just tell she puts so much love and care into each creation. I just love it! 💜

    Soothing Scent

    I got this in a grab bag and I'm using it right now. It's such a relaxing scent and lathers wonderfully like all of the soaps from here that I've tried.

    Stunning scent with a beautiful lather and scent

    I love Vy’s soaps so much and this one is no different. Not only is it stunning to look at, the lather is beautiful and moisturisers and cleans my hands well. I find the scent wears off but I think that’s because I’m using it so much so I’m just nose-blind! It’s a stunning scent that is fresh and floral. Definitely one of my favourites! Plus the packaging is incredible and vy’s customer service is outstanding.

    Subtly beautiful

    So I've been using Lady of Lake soap for a couple of weeks now. The scent is so subtle but even after a few hours I can still smell it on my skin. The soap leaves my skin soft & nourished. I absolutely love this soap and will definitely be buying again!
