There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb from Lush

I have been super-excited to review the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb as it really reminds me of Lush’s phenomenal 2016 Christmas line.

2016 was such an exciting year for Lush as we had the first, legendary Lush-creative-showcase. It is one of my (if not my) fondest memories of Lush and I still get butterflies thinking about what an amazing experience it was.

The There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb wasn’t a product available back then so you’re probably confused as to why I am even mentioning it BUT this bath bomb just seems to capture the same feelings of excitement in me.

I am a self-confessed Christmas-Scrooge so for me to be this excited about a product that is an in-your-face Christmas product is a huge deal indeed…

You’ve probably noticed the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb’s long name, to make it easier for you to read this review (and me to write this review) I will furthermore refer to it as the ‘There’s Room bath bomb’.

At the time of writing this review, the There’s Room bath bomb has only ever been available exclusively to those who purchased the December 2022, Lush-Kitchen-Subscription-box.

Whether it will come back as an actual product you can buy individually for Winter 2023 is a question that can only be answered by Lush. I however have my fingers crossed that it does make a reappearance at some point!

The There’s Room bath bomb contains some of the following ingredients: Rose oil, violet leaf absolute, sandalwood oil, and maple syrup and shares its scent with the Confetti perfume.

The scent is best described as heavily-violet, sweet and floral. I feel as if it is a mix of the Rose Jam shower gel’s scent and the Ultraviolet bubble bar. It’s floral but not in an old-lady way, it’s a fun scent that uplifts yet calms you down.

As you can see from the first and 2nd photos I have included in this review, the There’s Room bath bomb is a very clever design. I had to also include a side-shot of this bath bomb just to show you all how detailed it really is. Shaped as a yellow elf’s head, it has a pointed green elf-hat, pointed yellow elf-ears and bright pink elf-cheeks.

It’s one of the cutest bath bombs Lush have ever made, I imagine pressing this bath bomb is quite timely and that’s why it was only released as a Lush Kitchen exclusive.

As soon as the, There’s Room bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a soft hiss of yellow and green bubbles. As the bath bomb slowly dissolves the water gets to the bath bombs pink elf-cheeks and then pink bubbles start to spill out of the bath bomb too.

The bath art it creates reminds me of the bath art created by the 2021 version of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb albeit slightly different colouring. Some of the pictures I took of it also remind me of the Mermaid bath bomb although, There’s Room is much more colourful.

The There’s Room bath bomb takes a good 10-12 minutes to fully dissolve.

It doesn’t take long for the pink cheeks to disappear leaving you with just yellow and green bath-art-bubbles. Once all of the bath bomb has gone you are left with bright green, silky soft bath water.

The water is super-hydrating on your skin and once you’re out of the bath, the scent stays on your skin for the rest of the day. I could still smell it on my skin the next morning too.

As I said earlier, the scent of this bath bomb is quite a heavy one. Violet leaf is a powerful ingredient in perfume, and it works so well in the bath bomb format mixed with rose and sandalwood oil.

I can see this scent being made into several more different product formats in the future. As for my overall thoughts on the There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice list bath bomb, I loved it. I have my fingers crossed that Lush find a way to bring it out as a part of the 2023 Christmas line so that everyone can get a chance to try it, it’s fabulous!

Intergalactic Showder from Lush

The Intergalactic Showder is one of several products released by Lush in a collaboration with Lazy Oaf. I’m ashamed to say that before this collaboration I’d never actually heard of Lazy Oaf. Each product within this line ties in with something that you’d find in a launderette.

The entire line is inspired by Lazy Oaf’s up-front acknowledgement that life comes with both good days and bad days. The collection has been put together to remind customers that taking time to care for themselves should be as routine as doing your laundry.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I admit that this collaboration didn’t excite me very much but I’m a diehard Intergalactic bath bomb fan so when I heard there was a showder that shared its scent, I couldn’t resist buying a box.

For anyone who hasn’t experienced a Lush showder before, I suspect you’re wondering what a showder even is… A showder is quite simply a shower-powder. To use a showder all you have to do is take a handful of the powder from its box, then add water.

The Showder then foams up and creates a lovely thick lather. The reaction is not dissimilar to how a bath bomb reacts when it first gets wet. Once you have it all mixed up, you use it just as you would a shower gel.

Lush’s Intergalactic scent is a bestseller, the Intergalactic Showder contains a mixture of peppermint, vetivert and grapefruit oils. Its scent is primarily a peppermint one, the grapefruit in it however adds a fruity and citrusy sharpness to it. It’s incredibly difficult to describe and really is a fragrance you must experience yourself to truly appreciate how refreshing it is.

Scent wise the Intergalactic showder is spot on, as a product to shower with however, I’m not so sure. I hate to point out the obvious but it’s just not a very practical product. Firstly, it’s in a cardboard box, secondly, I feel I had to use a lot of the powder to get anywhere with it. With it being £15.00 for just 170g I just can’t see myself investing in a second box.

Yes, it did an alright job of cleansing my skin and its scent also remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day after using it BUT for its price I expected it to go a lot further, so many Lush products can be stretched out over several showers and baths but I was lucky to get 3 showers out of this one box.

Overall, I am glad I gave the Intergalactic showder a go, it’s a beautiful fragrance and an interesting concept but I think I much preferred the bottled Intergalactic shower gel if I am going to compare the two together.

Snow Fairy Body Lotion from Lush

It’s hard to believe that it took Lush until 2022 to bring out the Snow Fairy Body Lotion. The scent seems to have been made into every other product format possible through the years.

The Snow Fairy scent is best described as a sickly-sweet blend of candy floss and bubblegum.

I don’t always favour the super-sweet-scented Lush products HOWEVER, with the Snow Fairy scent featuring so heavily in so many of Lush’s products, it’s almost impossible to avoid, especially in the Winter.

Over the years I have slowly warmed to the Snow Fairy scent. The fact that all-things Snow-Fairy-scented are almost always exclusively pink is what always sells it to me. I wasn’t going to buy a pot of the Snow Fairy body lotion but after Lush sent me out a sample of it, I couldn’t help myself.

The most frequent question I have been asked about the Snow Fairy body lotion is how it compares to the Snow Fairy body conditioner.

The body lotion is a much lighter formula than the body conditioner equivalent, it’s just as hydrating but soaks in a lot quicker. I find a small amount goes a very long way which is always a bonus with Lush products, especially with the recent price increases of almost everything in the world right now.

The Snow Fairy body lotion isn’t my favourite of all the body lotions I have tried from Lush. I think my favourite out of the Winter body lotions will always be the Celebrate, Once Upon A Time and Calacas body lotions but it was nice to try something new.

The Snow Fairy body lotions bright pink colour was what won me over when it came to which Christmas products I’d be buying this year. I’m a true princess that can never get enough of anything if it’s pink.

As I said earlier, the Snow Fairy body lotion is hydrating, it’s scent on your skin isn’t as sickly sweet as other Snow Fairy products are, which is a good thing in my eyes as, as I’ve said many times before (especially with the sweet scents) sometimes less is more.

Overall, I am so pleased that I ordered a Snow Fairy body lotion, I probably won’t be buying another pot but only because I prefer other, fruity-scented body lotions more. If you are Snow Fairy crazy, I highly recommend buying yourself a pot of it though!

Happy Holidays Shower Gel from Lush

The Happy Holidays Shower Gel was an exclusive item that was a part of Lush Kitchen’s December 2022 subscription box. Previous to this, it had been released before but under a different name, the Merry Christmas shower gel.

Back when it was the Merry Christmas shower gel, it had only been available in the 2021 advent calendar and only in a measly 100g bottle.

Having a fresh 250g bottle of it (albeit with a different name) has made me very happy indeed.

You’ll recognise the Happy Holidays shower gels scent from the discontinued, Valentine’s Day product the Cherryish body scrub.

Cherryish happens to be my most favourite of all of Lush’s body scrubs as it exfoliates and buffs my skin so well. I was therefore very excited to get another bottle of the shower gel scent-equivalent.

The Happy Holidays shower gel is jam-packed with the prettiest golden shimmer, getting a decent photo of it was ridiculously difficult, the photos included in this review do it no justice at all. You really must see it for yourself to truly appreciate it, it’s so SPARKLY!

To look at, the Happy Holidays shower gel is quite similar to the Hot Toddy shower gel.

It is however a lot brighter shimmer wise and a little more transparent.

Consistency wise, the Happy Holidays shower gel is thick but still very easy to get out of the bottle.

The Happy Holidays shower gel contains aloe vera, agave syrup, cocoa absolute, cinnamon, and almond essential oil. Its scent is a subtle cherry fragrance with a slight hint of chocolate and spice.

Its scent is both warm and tangy like a sweet and fruity jam. It lathers up in your hands easily and the chocolate element within it really comes through when mixed with the hot water and steam of the shower.

Something I often find with Lush shower gels is that less-is-more when it comes down to using them and this is the case for Happy Holidays, a little goes a very, very long way!

Comparing both the Cherryish body scrub and Happy Holidays shower gel scent wise, the shower gel is a lot stronger yet still very subtle. As I said earlier, the smallest amount of it goes a very long way. This is a huge bonus when you consider how rare the shower gel is at the time of writing this review.

Happy Holidays scent can still be detected on your skin once you’re out of the shower. It also leaves your skin appearing brighter, as well as softening it too; It’s perfect to use in the cold Winter months.

I would love to see bottles of the Happy Holidays shower gel become a main line Winter product next year and I’d also like more Cherryish scented products too!

Wally de Wasbeerhond Bath Bomb from Lush

At the time of writing this review, the Wally De Wasbeerhond Bath Bomb (Wally the Raccoon Dog Bath Bomb) is an exclusive product to Lush Netherlands and as far as I am aware, won’t be released anywhere else.

I was lucky enough to get a hold of 2 thanks to the incredible, Carina.

Carina is behind the Lush-Instagram-account @lush.scents. I couldn’t start this review without sending her a thousand thank yous for going out of her way to get these bath bombs over to me in the UK. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This adorable bath bomb with the face of a raccoon was created and released to raise money and awareness for a very important cause.

Did you know that the fur most commonly worn in Europe comes from the raccoon dog? Did you also know that very recently a number of clothing retailers were found out to be selling ‘faux’ fur items that were actually real fur as bizarrely, real fur is less money to produce? It’s disgusting and cruel. Animals shouldn’t be killed and kept in awful conditions for anything, let alone for fashion purposes.

The Bont voor Dieren are an organisation that are committed to working towards a European ban on the fur industry. All proceeds from the sales of the Wally De Wasbeerhond bath bomb minus VAT are going towards Bont voor Dieren’s fight. (You can read more about what they do here.)

From now on, I am going to refer to the Wally De Wasbeerhond bath bomb as just the Wally bath bomb just to make reviewing and reading this review a little easier for the both of us.

The Wally bath bomb shares its scent with Lush’s popular Daddy-O Shampoo as well as the Violet Cream bubble bar. Some of the ingredients included in the bath bomb are both violet leaf and Pakistan rose absolutes as well as bergamot and canaga oils.

Its scent is warm and delicious, it’s very similar to Parma Violet sweets!

As soon as the Wally bath bomb touches the water there is a gentle hiss of bubbles, at first the bubbles are plain white then as the bath bomb dissolves, they slowly become more and more pink.

Wally is a very slow dissolver, 10 minutes after putting it in the water mine was still fizzing away although much smaller than it started out.

Once it has fully dissolved, the water it leaves behind is a beautiful, light-pink and it feels silky-soft to touch. The violet within in it makes it such an incredibly relaxing bath. The Daddy-O scent is one of Lush’s most uplifting and inviting fragrances and is one I often find myself craving.

Other than the fact that this bath bomb is raising awareness and funds to help the fight against the use of animal furs in Europe, my favourite part has to be its scent. I don’t think I have ever owned a stronger scented bath bomb. I could even smell it as the postman handed me over the well-sealed box of them.

I actually left the closed box of them downstairs in my living room when I went up to bed that night. Amazingly I could still smell them while I lay in bed. After use, the scent also stays on your skin for the longest time after getting out of the bath too, I love it!

Lush really need to release more violet scented products, it’s a really underestimated ingredient that adds so much to a product’s final fragrance. It also seems to work in any format Lush put it in, be that a shampoo, bubble bar or bath bomb.

Why Lush haven’t made this bath bomb available to purchase in other European countries confuses me as I know it would sell brilliantly and would raise so much more money for the cause?!?!!

Cobweb Bath Bomb from Lush

The main reason that I subscribe to the Lush Kitchen’s monthly subscription box is because sometimes it makes it possible for customers to get their hands on long-gone, discontinued products from Lush’s past.

I was therefore over the moon to see that the Cobweb Bath Bomb had made it into the Lush Kitchen’s 2022 Halloween box. Before this, I believe it had only ever been available as an online exclusive several years ago.

This smoky-grey, shimmery cobweb shaped bath bomb really stood out amongst the other treats in the 2022 Halloween box, I couldn’t help but buy another on eBay as soon as my box arrived. The Cobweb bath bomb shares its scent with the Black Pearl shower gel, (a product I promise to review soon).

The Cobweb bath bomb contains black sugar, chamomile blue oil, lavender absolute, olibanum oil and myrrh resinoid. It has one of Lush’s most relaxing scent families and is a good alternative if you’re getting a little bored of the heavily featured, Sleepy scent.

Like the Sleepy scent found in the likes of the Twilight and Sleepy bath bombs, the Cobweb bath bombs scent is rich with lavender, the Cobweb bath bomb however smells more herbal and has a generous helping of calming chamomile in it too.

If each word in the dictionary had its own fragrance, I’d like to believe that the word ‘relax’ would smell just like the Cobweb bath bomb.

At 110g the Cobweb bath bomb sits in my hand snuggly, it’s a little bit bigger than the I Want My Mummy bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb. It’s definitely too small to be a cobweb created by the huge Tarantula shower jelly from this year’s Halloween range! 😉

While it’s quite a plain bath bomb, the etched-in cobweb design makes it truly unique to any other bath bomb ever released by Lush. I love that the Cobweb bath bomb also has a slight shimmer to it. It’s just like a cobweb with drops of morning dew decorating it.

The photos I have included in this review do the Cobweb bath bomb no justice at all. While it doesn’t create bath art it does create the most mesmerising cloudy grey water, it reminds me of a water colour painting of a stormy or cloudy day. The Cobweb bath bomb is an incredibly quick fizzer and has completely dissolved within about 2 minutes of it being placed into the bath water. The water it leaves behind is so very sparkly. Like a star-spangled dusky nights sky.

As I said earlier, the Cobweb bath bomb’s scent is one of (if not the) most relaxing scent-family created by Lush. Laying back in its waters leaves me ready for a deep-sleep marathon. Lush really need to bring this scent back to life and throw it in to other product formats.

Lush, please bring back more old school products like this in the Lush Kitchen subscription boxes, getting to try such incredible Lush treasures is a real treat that makes my soul so very happy!

Purple Carrots Shower Gel from Lush

The Purple Carrots Shower Gel was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box (April 2022). SPOILER ALERT, I wholeheartedly believe that it is the best shower gel Lush have released in a very long time. With Calacas shower gel being the exception, Purple Carrots is now my all-time favourite Lush shower gel. A bold statement indeed, but one I stand by.

As much as I like the What’s Up, Doc? shower gel from this year’s Easter line, I will never understand how it got made a part of the Easter line over the Purple Carrots shower gel. Both are amazing, Lush have really outdone themselves when it comes to their new shower gels this year BUT Purple Carrots has blown me away so much more than the latter has.

The Purple Carrots shower gel is, as its name suggests, purple. It’s a slightly lighter shade of purple than the Plum Rain shower gel and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.

The Purple Carrots shower gel contains a long list of ingredients. It has both purple carrot infusion and carrageenan extract, as well as the following essential oils; bergamot, buchu and Sicilian lemon. It actually shares its scent with several past products – best remembered in the likes of the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb and the Bunch of Carrots reusable bubble bar.

The delicate yet refreshing scent of the Purple Carrots shower gel is very nostalgic to me as it reminds me of my paternal nan and grandads house when I was a little. It makes me feel safe and uplifted, it’s a simple but beautiful citrusy fragrance that I cannot get enough of.

As I said earlier, Lush have really outdone themselves this year when it comes down to their new-release shower gels, they just keep getting better. If Purple Carrots doesn’t become a mainline product in the not-so-distant future, Lush are making a big mistake. Choosing not to release the Purple Carrots shower gel properly, would be as big of a mistake from Lush as when they decided to cut off all their customers with their ‘deletion’ of social media.

It is a crime to let the Purple Carrots shower gel be just a one-off exclusive to April 2022’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box. If Lush were still on social media I’d be tagging and messaging them every day, bugging them to bring it out as a new shower gel in their permanent all-year-round line.

As I said earlier, the Purple Carrots shower gels consistency is deliciously thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with its gorgeously refreshing scent.

The Purple Carrots shower gel leaves my skin looking and feeling clean, refreshed, soft and well moisturised. After I’ve used it, the scent lasts on my skin for a good few hours. It’s also really hydrating too. It seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does. Overall, I cannot recommend the Purple Carrots shower gel more, I am extremely bitter to only have one bottle of it. Lush, please, please bring it out properly!

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

I was really enjoying Lush’s 2022 Easter line; You can see this from all of the previous-to-this-posts, written reviews. It however wasn’t until I got April’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box that I realised how much better the Easter line could have been…

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box and I promise you that I am not exaggerating when I say that April 2022’s box was the best Lush Kitchen box to date.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is exactly the same shape and size as this years’ The Golden Egg bath bomb. It’s a small one weighing in at only 90g but if Lush products have taught me anything over the years, it is that size doesn’t indicate how good or bad a product is going to be.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is a shimmery, light-blue and contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oils. Its scent is incredibly refreshing. It has a clean, sharp fragrance that could wake up the weariest of souls. The peppermint and eucalyptus within it are the more dominant ingredient, scent wise.

As soon as the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb meets the water little bubbles begin to sizzle out of it. After just over a minute of light, gentle bubbles, green foam suddenly starts to spill out of the bath bomb.

The blue part of this bath bomb appears more white than blue, once it has been in the water for a while. Slowly but surely, the green foam spilling out of the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb becomes fiercer. Spouting from 2 points of the bath bomb instead of just the one. As the bath bomb spins in the water, beautiful green and white bath art begins to form on the water surface.

Looking back at the photographs and video footage that I captured of this bath bomb in action, I can see that it only took 7 minutes to fully dissolve. As you can see from the photos, I have included in this review it didn’t disappoint when it came down to pretty colouring and bath art.

Earlier, I mentioned that the 2022, Lush Easter line could have been so much better had they included some of the products exclusive to April’s Lush Kitchen box in the line. I think the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb would have been a best seller had they included it. I hope that Lush see sense and put it in next year’s Easter line as I’d love to use it again.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb’s scent make it a good product to go for if you have the sniffles, the eucalyptus in it makes it especially good for helping soothe sinus issues. For centuries, eucalyptus oils have been used to help manage with the symptoms of the common cold.

Even without a cold, the eucalyptus and peppermint oils in the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb make it a super awakening bath bomb. It is a great bath bomb to use if you’re in need of just an energy boost.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright green water, all of the goodness from the bath bomb’s ingredients makes the water incredibly soft and laying in its waters leaves your skin feeling silky smooth to touch and also leaves your skin appearing much brighter.

Overall, I am really, really impressed with the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb. I don’t mean to repeat myself, but I really do hope that Lush decide to release it in their Easter 2023 line as I’d love to use it again, and I feel others who aren’t subscribed to the Lush Kitchen boxes deserve a chance to use it too.

Yummy Custard Body Wash from Lush

The Yummy Custard Body Wash is a brand-new, limited edition, 2022 Mother’s Day product. This year’s range isn’t as large as those from years before BUT each product in it is of the highest standard. I much prefer quality over quantity and this year’s Mother’s Day line is the best seasonal line we’ve had in a long time.

Yummy Custard body wash contains vanilla oat milk, fair trade organic aloe vera gel, corn starch, vanilla pod powder and glycerine.

It shares its scent with the Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser and the now discontinued, Nana shower gel. Both of those products are loved by all in my household so the chance of trying a body wash equivalent had us all eager to try it.

In October 2021, Lush released another body wash called Posh Chocolate. Yummy Custard is very similar consistency wise. It’s a lot like the butter icing you get on the last slice of a big cake, almost solid on the outside but fluffy and creamy underneath that very thin outer layer.

As you can see in the photo above, Yummy Custard is a creamy off-white colour and is speckled with tiny black vanilla seeds. A little amount of it goes a very long way making it excellent value for money.

It’s creamy consistency just glides onto your skin, melting and sinking in like butter on hot toast; It’s amazing for my dry skin. It’s quite literally the best in-shower-product that I have used on my dry skin.


It instantly soothes and my skin has never looked so well nourished and smooth in such a short space of time. One minute my skin is dry, the next I use Yummy Custard and it’s like my skin was never dry at all!

To use, all you’re meant to do is scoop a little amount of it out of the pot and then slather it all over your body. You just massage it in, concentrating a little more on your dryer areas such as your elbows and knees, then you simply rinse it off. I then just pat myself dry with a towel.

The tiny black vanilla seeds in it do not scratch or irritate you at all, if I’m being honest, I don’t even notice them – Amazingly, its sweet popcorn like fragrance remained on my skin right into the next day, my skin is also just as smooth and nourished 24 hours after using it too, something I was pleasantly surprised with.


I will most certainly be taking a large pot of this on my next sunny holiday, I can imagine it feeling amazing on your skin after a long day in the sun. I love how gentle the formula is too. My skin has never felt so good!

If you love the Posh Chocolate body wash then I highly recommend you trying out Yummy Custard. I think I may in fact like Yummy Custard more than I do Posh Chocolate…

Overall, I LOVE the Yummy Custard body wash, it is so much more than just your standard body wash, my skin is quite dry but I could see it working just as well as on all skin types. I can’t get over how amazing it makes my skin feel. You really do have to grab a pot while it’s still available.

Mimosa Shower Gel from Lush


The Mimosa Shower Gel is a brand-new, limited-edition, Mother’s Day product that first became available in the UK in the middle of February 2022. I have well and truly grown bored of Lush’s small collection of all-year-round shower gels so was very excited to get a brand new one in the shower with me.

Mimosa shower gel is a beautiful shade of golden orange, when the sunlight hits it, it really reminds me of a fresh bottle of Calacas shower gel, it glows in exactly the same way. Lush have done the impossible with this shower gel, it is quite literally the sun in shower gel form.

It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency and since its release, has been popular throughout the Lush Community. There is something about it that is so incredibly moreish.

The Mimosa shower gel contains a long list of ingredients; elderflower infusion, fresh orange juice, wine lees oil, mimosa absolute, sweet wild orange oil, and carnation absolute to name just a few.

Give or take a few ingredients such as the mimosa absolute, the Mimosa shower gel shares a lot of the same ingredients as the Celebrate and Bubbly shower gels. I was really surprised when I first sniffed the Mimosa shower gel straight from the bottle, I was expecting it to smell a little like the shower gels I mentioned earlier but not quite as much as it did.

At first, I really was convinced that the Mimosa shower gel was just yet another version of a Celebrate scented shower gel. I thought Lush had cheated with their claim that Mimosa was a new scent entirely. Some products scents, particularly shower gels do however change in use so although I was sceptical of it being a new Lush scent, I kept an open mind.

As I said earlier, the Mimosa shower gels consistency is quite thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way too. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent becomes less like the Celebrate shower gel and more of its own.

It is still very similar to the Celebrate shower gel scent wise BUT it has a floral twist that becomes less subtle and more dominant during use. As the mimosa note of the shower gels fragrance becomes more apparent the more, it reminds me of warmer weather and the sunshine. It literally washes away your Winter blues, it’s the perfect pre Spring pick-me-up.

My favourite thing about the Mimosa shower gel is however how it leaves my skin looking and feeling. After I’ve used it, the scent doesn’t last on my skin for very long (if at all) BUT it does leave my skin feeling incredibly soft. It’s also very hydrating; it seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does.- Overall, I really do like this shower gel, it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s quite literally a bottle of shower-gel-sunshine!
