Literary Lip Balms

The Lost Boys Soap Bar


A bold and playful medley of lemongrass, lime peel, basil and wood.

The story: An adventurous blend of sweet basil, lemongrass and lime inspired by J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. As it evaporates, notes of cedar linger behind like the warmth of sunshine on wood. 

The product: A cleansing and detoxifying bath soap for hands and body. Work up a lather and bask in the scent of citrus and basil. The addition of French and yellow clay makes it particularly well suited for normal and oily skin.

Our soaps 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.

Creamy and luxurious

Lost Boys is the perfect shower soap. The gold dust stayed on the bar for several washings, more than I expected, and made me feel all sorts of glamorous when I saw it on me while I lathered. The scent truly is the perfect unisex scent. My boyfriend loved the smell as much as I had and the fragrance was just enough, not too subtle or too overwhelming. I've had issues in the past with other soap companies because their bars would crumble and fall apart the more you used it. Not so here. This bar was smooth, creamy, and lasted longer than I had known I could hope for!

Such a unique scent!

The basil and lime are intoxicatingly wonderful and combine to make such a beautiful scent! The touch of gold makes it feel just that extra bit special, and of course like all of Vy's soaps its amazingly moisturising too!

Megan Corbett
Love it

As with everything I've bought from Literary Lip Balms, this soap is so moisturising and smells incredible. It's an earthy smell - perfect for the lost boys! - lathers up really well, and leaves my hands feeling soft. The only thing I would note is that the gold fades fairly quickly upon use - so if you want pictures take them before you use the soap!

Fresh and clean!

This is the perfect spring/ summer soap!
