When I very first see a photograph of the Plum Rain Shower Gel on Instagram, it took me by complete surprise. I hadn’t heard anything about it being released at all. This made it my new, number one must have Lush product.
As soon as I could, I texted my sister in law to let her know I would be sending her on a Lush Oxford Street errand at her earliest convenience. At the time of its debut (July 2016) it was an Oxford Street exclusive so could only be bought from that one store. Luckily for the rest of the world, it is now available exclusively online too.
Plum Rain shower gel is a deep and sexy purple. As soon as the parcel that was sent up from London by my sister in law arrived I grabbed Plum Rain ready to sniff it. I had decided prior to sniffing it that it must share its scent with the Mumkin Bubble Bar. I was however, wrong. Very wrong!
Its scent is completely different from anything I have tried from Lush before. It’s a very sour fruity smell BUT not at all unpleasant. It didn’t take me very long to fall in love with it at all.
Plum Rain shower gel is quite a thick gel. It is very similar in consistency to the likes of Lush’s Bubbly and Hot Toddy shower gels. A little of the product goes a very long way, the smallest amount of shower gel lathers up effortlessly and it is as you work it in your hands in preparation to cleanse your body that the scent really hits you.
It is one of the most interesting scents Lush have on offer and I cannot wait for them to bring out more products that share its scent. The scent is refreshing, warm and so very inviting, I can never get enough of it.
Although the Plum Rain shower gels scent doesn’t stay on your skin for very long after getting out of the shower or bath, it does linger in your hair if used as a shampoo. In regards to my skin, Plum Rain is incredibly hydrating, after using it my skin feels silky smooth.
I am honestly so pleased with Plum Rain, it has taken pride of place in amongst my other much loved Lush shower gels and creams.
