Great for any kids with sensory difficulties or autism. These soaps from lush are made of a play dough consistency and can be used for hands, body and hair,’ she wrote online.

My little boy has sensory processing disorder and I'm very excited to let him "shower with play dough".

The innovative addition to bath time comes in Rainbow, Mermaid and Monster and Aliens style.

The three-in-one bars can be used as shampoo, soap or a bubble bar, so there’s no need to be faffing around with multiple bottles. A great way to reduce your plastic packaging consumption too.

Lots of commenters quickly piped up to thank the original poster for bringing the cool soap to their attention.

My daughter will love this, thank you,’ wrote one.

Meanwhile, a second had her very own tip, explaining, ‘Word to the wise- you can also use these as finger paints.

Mix a tiny bit with a lot of water and it will work on tiles and just washes off. My nephew adores these and it’s super easy to clean off.’
