Lush Refresher Shower Jelly

Hi guys ! Happy Friday ! How was your week ? Glad it's weekend ? I still have work tomorrow - but at least I got Monday off.

As I mentioned, while away on holiday , I popped into a Lush store and another thing I was always curious about was their Shower Jelly. This is such a unique concept - and once they demonstrated in store I knew I loved this scent (The blue one Whoosh! smells amazing too - but since I was on holiday the extremely lemony/ citrussy smell on this one blew me away ). The scent seems pretty powerful when you take a piece out , but once used it fades into a gorgeous lemon scent that will instantly brighten your mood. 

Once out of the container, this is a wobbly piece of jelly. I was contemplating using it as is - but I follow a few Lush related Instragram accounts and most suggest cutting your shower jelly into small blocks and using it like that. I decided to go that route - and I'm glad I did. 

Now I use the shower jelly a few ways - I use one block  it in a little sieve to create gorgeous citrussy bubbles in my bath - or I grab a block and use it with a loofah in the shower. That way you only use that block (and while it looks small - it's more than enough for a shower or tons of bubbles in the bath. ) The jelly is firm enough to not melt away instantly - yet lathers up nicely .

I store mine in the fridge (since it's not really close to Winter weather here .. Even though it should be - sigh ! ) and grab a block as needed. My son Alex even discovered that he LOVES the smell - and a few nights a week he will sneak a block to use in his bath time - as a six year old he thinks this wobbly piece of shower jelly is the coolest thing ever . 

From the Lush website -

"When it's nice weather for ducks outside, head straight for the shower with this lemon jelly. Inside, a citrus explosion of fresh organic lemon infusion, lemon oil and organic lemon myrtle will blow the blues away. Why not take your jelly straight out of the fridge or freezer and into the bath or shower with you? The rush of cold on your skin will send blood pumping to the surface, increasing circulation and delivering a super-refreshed feeling." 

The Lush Refresher Shower Jelly retails for R89 for the small 100g tub - but there is another bigger one that retails for R165 for 250g tub.

If you haven't already tried this - and you are looking for a great new shower product - I would really recommend picking up this beauty. 

Do you have any fun weekend plans ? What is your favourite scent for bath shower time ? Do you prefer floral smells or citrus smells ?
