Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Jelly from Lush

The Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Jelly is one of 9, limited edition shower jellies voted for, for release by the Lush community a few months ago. If you’re one of the thousands of people that miss the very much discontinued Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream, then this shower jelly equivalent will most certainly fill the void it has left in your Lush-life.

To this day I am still completely taken aback at Lush’s decision to discontinue everything Yuzu and Cocoa, especially the gorgeous Yuzu and Cocoa bubbleroon. The loss of both the shower cream and the bubbleroon did however make the news of a shower jelly equivalent being released all the more exciting!

The Yuzu and Cocoa fragrance is one of my favourite Lush scents, the only way I can describe it is ‘wonderfully chocolatey’ and just like a fresh packet of Jaffa cakes. If you love to eat orange chocolate then I recommend trying ALL of the products that share the Yuzu and Cocoa scent.

The Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly is a beautiful mix of yellow and honey shades. As you can see in the photo above it has a mix of yellow and warm amber tones in it, its mix of colours remind me of the Twilight shower jelly which is also made with a blend of swirling colours through it.

Sadly I find that the shower jellies that aren’t all one colour tend to break up / show wear and tear a lot quicker. After 3 uses my Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly had started to lose its shape and robusticity. Quite the opposite of the single-coloured shower jellies also chosen by the Lush Community like Yummy Mummy.

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. With the Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly being slightly more fragile-a-jelly than I am used to using as a whole, the chopping method is in my opinion the best way to get the most out of this particular shower jelly.

The Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly lathers up quickly, its scent is just as good as I remember the shower cream being both in the pot and in use. The Yuzu and Cocoa scent is incredibly versatile, I am yet to come across a product format that it hasn’t worked in.

Apart from the Yuzu and Cocoa shower jellies delicacy, I really can’t fault the shower jelly. It’s just as creamy as its shower cream equivalent and its scent lasts on my skin through out the best part of the day after using it too.

Normally shower jellies can be quite drying on my skin, the Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly however leaves my skin soft and positively refreshed. It isn’t hugely moisturising but doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion either. Overall I believe that it is a wonderful addition to the Yuzu and Cocoa product family!

Yummy Mummy Shower Jelly from Lush

Yummy Mummy Shower Jelly

The Yummy Mummy Shower Jelly is one of 9 shower jellies voted for, for release by the Lush community. I’m unsure on how long Yummy Mummy will be available to purchase online BUT if you’re one of the thousands of people that miss the discontinued Yummy Mummy shower cream, then this shower jelly equivalent will most certainly fill the void it has left in your Lush-life.

This shower jelly is the exact same shade of purple as the shower cream. You’ll also be pleased to hear that its scent is just as intoxicatingly good as the shower cream equivalent too. If the Strawberry Hill shower bomb wasn’t quite ‘Yummy Mummy’ enough for you then I’d definitely grab a pot or 2 of this shower jelly.

I’m unsure on the reason as to why Lush haven’t released a Yummy Mummy shower jelly sooner, I guess for the same reason they haven’t brought out the shower cream again since 2017. There is a huge demand for products in this scent and I wholeheartedly believed this time 2 years ago that they’d have created a body spray in this scent long before now too. We have however had no such luck.

The Yummy Mummy shower jellies ingredients include fresh strawberry infusion, geranium, Brazilian orange and tonka absolute. If you haven’t experienced the Yummy Mummy scent before I’d describe it to you as just like a bowl of sliced, fresh strawberries drizzled in a generous helping of gorgeous, super-sweet vanilla cream. Yum’s the word!

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 that I never do, (even with my husband!)

Most shower jellies I find are fairly robust, the most recent releases have been more than adequate to use as a whole, Yummy Mummy included. This delightful shower jelly lathers up quickly and easily. I have used it several times now and there are no signs of wear and tear to report.

As the lather of the Yummy Mummy shower jelly gets going the steam of the hot shower-water really helps throw its strawberry scent. With a lot of Lush products being citrus-fruit based having a product like Yummy Mummy makes for a great change. What surprised me the most about the Yummy Mummy shower jelly though is how hydrating it was.

Normally shower jellies leave my skin feeling a little dry and in need of body lotion but Yummy Mummy left my skin feeling and looking just how I like it, soft and hydrated without any oiliness. Its scent also hangs around on your skin long after you’ve got out of the shower too. This makes it easier to forgive Lush for not releasing a Yummy Mummy body spray yet…

Overall I am really impressed with the Yummy Mummy shower jelly, it’s just as good as the shower cream equivalent and as far as I am aware has sold very well. It’s a fantastic addition to the Lush shower jelly family and I will be without question grabbing a few pots before they sell out!
