Conga Shower Jelly from Lush

At the time of writing this review, the Conga Shower Jelly is a Lush product that is exclusively available only at Lush’s brand new, flagship-super-store in Liverpool, England. As a self confessed lover of anything pink, Conga was the first of the exclusive shower jellies to catch my eye.

As soon as I heard that ‘raspberry’ was one of the ingredients in Conga I instantly thought, could this be the next Mumkin bubble bar scented product that we’ve all been asking for, for years?

Sadly for Mumkin addicts, Conga has a brand new Lush scent, it’s fairly similar to the likes of the Raspberry Milkshake soap but has an extra sour element to it, something that excited me straight away, allowing me to easily put the Mumkin bubble bar to the back of my mind once again…

Conga contains fresh raspberry juice and vanilla absolute giving it a fruity sweet fragrance, the sour element that comes through in its scent is the bergamot oil. On paper I wasn’t at all sure if this blend of ingredients would work, one sniff of Conga however wipes out any uncertainty. It’s delicious.

There are so many ways to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time. This method is definitely best if you were planning on sharing the jelly (something I never do! 😉)

Most shower jellies I find are fairly robust. There are others such as the Ghost shower jelly that do not last well through use when left as a whole. Conga is however one of the most robust shower jellies I have used to date. Conga lathers quickly and easily.

As the lather of Conga gets going the steam of the hot water really helps carry its raspberry scent. In use it actually reminds me of the Plum Rain shower gel which funnily enough was another product that upon its release, I dared to dream could be Mumkin bubble bar scented too. It wasn’t Mumkin scented BUT I did fall hopelessly in love with it as like Conga it has a very unique berry-fruit sour scent.

After getting out of the shower, the Conga shower jellies scent lasts for a good few hours on your skin, it brightens dull skin up and leaves it feeling fresh. It isn’t hugely moisturising but isn’t so drying that it leaves me desperate to coat myself in body lotion.

Overall I am really impressed with the Conga shower jelly, I hope that Lush make it more readily available for all soon. It’s a fantastic addition to the Lush shower jelly family, I could see it selling very well if it was made a main line Lush product!
