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!

Keep it Fluffy Shower Gel from Lush

The Keep it Fluffy Shower Gel was in my personal opinion the standout, star product in February 2022’s Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The Keep it Fluffy scent was first introduced to the world in 2004 under the B Never Too Busy to be Beautiful brand. You’ll most recently recognise it as it featured in Lush’s 2021’s Advent Calendar in perfume form.

Keep it Fluffy shower gel is a slightly darker pink than Lush’s ridiculously popular, Snow Fairy shower gel and has a perfectly thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.

Keep it Fluffy contains a long list of carefully put together ingredients – Lemongrass infusion, jasmine flower infusion, fine sea salt, Pakistani rose, and vanilla absolutes as well as the following essential oils; lemongrass and ylang ylang.

Keep it Fluffy’s scent is an inviting, powdery vanilla with hints of lemongrass. The ylang ylang within it also adds a floral element to it too. It’s a super fun, uplifting and glamourous fragrance.

As I said earlier Keep it Fluffy’s consistency is thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. A small amount of it goes a very long way, and it lathers up with ease.

In use, the warmth of the hot water and steam from the shower really bring the fragrance to life, some even say that ylang ylang is a great aphrodisiac, this ties the Keep it Fluffy shower gel in with the theme of Valentine’s Day perfectly.

Once you’re out of the shower, Keep it Fluffy’s scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it’s a lot more subtle on your skin than when it is fresh out of the bottle but its scent is still there and just as sultry.



The inclusion of the fine sea salt in the Keep it Fluffy shower gel makes it both an excellent cleanser and very gentle exfoliant. My skin feels a lot smoother after just one shower.

I also find that it leaves my skin hydrated enough to get away with not having to moisturise my whole body after getting out of the shower too, saving me some precious time. Time being something we can all agree on needing a bit more of…

I love when Lush bring their old scent-families back to life, people that have been shopping with Lush since they first opened their doors really do appreciate the trip down memory lane that the old scents take them on. It’s also a fabulous way to introduce new customers into the scents that made Lush who they are today.

I cannot wait to see if Lush release more products in the Keep it Fluffy fragrance and I hope that once again Lush bring this shower gel out properly so that I can get a much bigger bottle! 😊

Lakes Bath Bomb from Lush

The Lakes Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a product that was exclusive to August 2021’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Shortly after this super-exclusive release it became a part of Lush UK’s regular line, giving more customers an opportunity to try it. At the time of writing this review it is still currently available.

Back before the Lakes was even released in the Lush Kitchen box, I read on one of Lush’s co-founders Instagram accounts that the Lakes bath bomb was inspired by a song written and performed by bestselling artist, Taylor Swift.

The Lakes bath bomb is a pretty little thing and is one of my favourite bath bomb releases from 2021. I am ecstatic that it has become a part of Lush’s permanent line. It would be a crime to have not made it more readily available for all to try.

It is a pastel green and pastel pink colour. To look at, it is very similar to (but not the same) as the charity bath bomb that was released by Lush a few years ago, Mermaid.

It is a standard shape and standard size bath bomb at 200g. There is just something about Lake’s pastel shades that make me instantly feel relaxed and refreshed. It’s plain but beautiful – sometimes less, is more.

The Lakes bath bomb was also inspired by the tranquillity of the Lake District, somewhere I have been lucky enough to visit back in my twenties. If I ever get to visit again – I’ll be sure to bring along a Lakes bath bomb.

The Lakes bath bomb has a long list of grounding and calming ingredients; labdanum resinoid, osmanthus absolute, myrrh resinoid, Siberian fir needle oil and oakmoss. Laying back in its waters really does make you feel as if you are reconnecting with nature.

The Lakes bath bomb’s scent is one I would love to have in perfume form. It’s fizzy like sherbet and both earthy and refreshing too. It’s not an easy scent to describe. The best I can come up with is that it’s like a breath of crisp, fresh air. One you’d only experience on a walk in the countryside.

As soon as you put the Lakes bath bomb into your bath water there is an explosion of green foam, as it bobs around the waters surface pink streaks begin to foam out of it too. The green and pink are both very cool shades which all adds to the tranquillity of the Lakes bathing experience.

Lakes is a slow fizzer, where its colours are of pastel shades, you don’t get any striking bath art, the colours do however create subtle light pink and green patterns. Lakes’ unique selling point is 100% its glorious scent.

As I said earlier, using it is just like you’re reconnecting with nature itself. If you shut your eyes and take a deep breath while lying in its waters it’s almost as if you’re bathing outside in the middle of a meadow, birds tweeting around you.

The Lakes bath bomb takes a good 10 minutes plus to fully dissolve. The water left behind is very similar to the water left behind by the Avobath bath bomb, however, Lakes’ water has a milkier more pearlescent finish. The water is silky smooth, my skin has never felt better after a good soak in the bath with a Lakes bath bomb.

Overall, I am a huge fan of this plain but beautiful bath bomb. I wholeheartedly stand by my earlier statement that it is one of my favourite Lush releases from 2021!

Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar from Lush

If like me you’ve been a Lush customer for quite some time, you’d know all about Lush’s past perfectly-innocently-shaped fruit and vegetable inspired Valentine’s Day products. 2022 has not only brought us a giant version of the Aubergine bath bomb but now we also have a Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar too.

Kim the Carrot is a carrot shaped bubble bar that appears to have legs. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s a carrot with LEGS! Never have I ever looked at a carrot and thought of it as a particularly romantic or ‘sexy’ vegetable but here we are with carrots in 2022’s Valentine’s Day line… You heard it here first, carrots are no longer exclusive to Lush’s Easter line.

The Kim the Carrot bubble bar is a fairly decent sized bubble bar at 120g (for comparison purposes The Comforter bubble bar, one of Lush’s largest is 200g) It contains a long list of ingredients; benzoin resinoid, vanilla absolute, fresh carrot juice and fresh ginger root.

Its scent is incredibly sweet, just like the bright pink candy sweets you get in sweet shops. If you told me that more than just vanilla was in this product, I wouldn’t believe you based on its scent alone.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars is that they can be spread out over several baths whereas bath bombs can only really be used in just the one bath. I was therefore pleased to find out that a very small amount of the Kim the Carrot bubble bar went a very long way.

To use the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it as the bath fills up. It’s a really soft, crumbly bubble bar making it very easy to break up.

I find the sieve method the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. It is also the best way to ensure that none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted. Through trial and error, I have discovered that using a bubble bar in this way ensures that you get the most bubbles too.

(Photo 4)

You could easily get 3 generously bubbled bubble baths out of just one Kim the Carrot. The bubbles begin to form very quickly and the water underneath the blanket of bubbles is just as bright orange as the water created by the Brightside bubble bar.

The water is smooth to the touch and the bubbles last throughout your whole soak. One thing I did notice after using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar is that it wasn’t as hydrating on the skin as other recently released Lush bubble bars have been. It didn’t dry my skin out at all, I just noticed it wasn’t as moisturising as I have grown accustomed to.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, it isn’t my favourite from the Valentine’s Day line, but I am glad I tried it.

Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub from Lush

The Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub is the first of its kind from Lush. We’ve had similar with their eye pads before now, but have never had a lip mask.

Along with Hot Lips being a lip mask, it is also apparently a lip scrub. I was very intrigued when I heard about this aspect of Hot Lips as before now, all of Lush’s lip scrubs have been sold in a pot (for example, the Golden Pineapple lip scrub. There were a few solid lip scrubs that were released back in 2017 too, Black Rose being my favourite) but unfortunately, they didn’t sell well so got scrapped and have long been forgotten about…

As I said earlier, Hot Lips is made in a similar way to the fairly new Lush-product-invention, eye pads. Hot Lips has the same sturdy, jelly-like consistency and must be kept in your fridge until you’re ready to use it, staying fresh for 3 weeks.

Hot Lips is described on Lush’s website as being very similar in flavour, to a delicious Cherry Bakewell. Ingredients wise, Hot Lips contains, calendula petal and hibiscus flower infusion, carrageenan extract, bamboo stem extract (the scrubby aspect of the mask that I’ll talk more about later) and the following essential oils – davana, lime and almond.

To use Hot Lips as both a mask and scrub, there are 2 stages. Stage 1 is the lip mask aspect of it. All you have to do is take Hot Lips out of your fridge, unwrap it from its fully compostable wrapping paper, then place it on your lips for about 10 minutes. With it being fresh from the fridge, it’s extremely cooling on your lips. Sit back and relax and let Hot Lips soothe and smooth your lips.

Stage 2 of using Hot Lips is as a lip scrub. When I first got a hold of this product, I really wasn’t sure how well this product would work as a scrub. The grounded bamboo in Hot Lips however add a very gentle scrub like consistency. As you gently buff it over your lips it slowly starts to break down becoming scrubbier. While I don’t think Hot Lips is as good as a lip scrub as Lush’s potted ones, the mask stage did soften my lips somewhat and the scrub stage did make my lips feel somewhat smoother.

Would I recommend using Hot Lips more than once? No. In this products case, fresh is best. With it being a product for your lips and one you have to handle a lot to use, I would say you should only really use it the once.

Although, it is plenty big enough for you to cut it in half (and still have enough product to cover all your lips at the mask stage) so if you want to stretch out 2 uses from it, that is a good solution. You just won’t have the novelty side of the product as cut into 2, it won’t be lip shaped anymore.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Hot Lips lip mask and scrub. It was nice to experience a different type of lip scrub and I was surprised at just how well it did work. Hot Lips is a fantastic addition to Lush’s Valentine’s Day line, and I look forward to seeing what Lush next come up with!

Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb from Lush

As soon as the 2022 Lush Valentine’s Day products were revealed, I knew that the Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb would be the first one that I grabbed. As you can see from the above and below photos, Mr Loba Loba is a gorgeous little lobster shaped bath bomb with a sprinkling of biodegradable red confetti hearts decorating its body.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is approximately 100g, similar in size to the Sleepy Bear and Tick-Tock bath bombs.

Mr Loba Loba is a gloriously bright red and as I mentioned earlier, is lightly decorated with a sprinkling of confetti hearts. I love the inclusion of these in bath bombs, just like the bath bombs that contain popping candy I feel the confetti hearts add something a little extra for your visual pleasure.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond essential oil. Its scent is sweet yet warm. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla and some type of berry fruit, the almond essential oil adds a nuttiness to its fragrance, rounding off the tonka absolute. It’s incredibly moreish and a scent I would like to see more of from Lush.

What with the recent price hike on all of Lush’s products, I’d say that the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is actually a quite reasonable price. I can see a lot of Lush’s future bath bombs being of a similar size just so Lush don’t begin to price themselves out. I don’t normally mention exact prices in my reviews as Lush do change their prices a lot.

Sadly, bath bombs are single-use-products, and I can’t even see myself, (a self-confessed Lush addict) wanting to spend much more on a single bath bomb, maybe smaller Lush bath bombs like Mr Loba Loba are the way of the future, who knows?

As soon as the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of red foam. I think it might just be the foamiest bath bomb that I have ever used from Lush.

Like the Lucky Tiger bath bomb, Mr Loba Loba isn’t a bath art creator, its unique selling point is its enchanting scent and just how foamy it is. It makes the most incredibly soft water and leaves your skin super hydrated.

As the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb floats around your bath, the red confetti hearts begin to break away from the bath bomb slowly decorating the water with perfect little love-hearts.

For its size the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb takes a lot longer to dissolve than I expected – a good 5 minutes. As I said earlier, it’s the foamiest bath bomb I have used in a very long time, this foam makes the water so, so soft and hydrating. My skin loved it; I didn’t want to get out of the bath.

Eventually, (and only because the water got too cold) I did have to get out of the bath and pull the plug. The scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day and left it feeling silky smooth!

Overall, I adore the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb. It’s a fantastic, novelty addition to the Valentine’s line. I’d love to see it year in, year out but am trying to not get too attached as Lush have a habit of making products like this one-hit-wonders…

Temptation Shower Gel from Lush

The Temptation Shower Gel is a brand-new release from Lush; It is a limited-edition product that is a part of Lush’s 2022 Valentine’s Day line.

Temptation is a rose-red and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency. Consistency wise it is very similar to the Jolly shower gel from last year’s Winter line.

Temptation contains a long list of perfectly put together ingredients; Cinnamon stick, organic apple juice, myrrh resinoid, orange flower absolute, cinnamon leaf oil, apple cider vinegar, red rose petals and ginseng infusion. It shares its scent with Lush’s Apple Crumble bubble bar.

I am excited to see that Lush have finally brought a new apple-based scent to life. I love Lush’s So White scent (their most famous apple-based fragrance that pops up in products such as the So White shower gel and Once Upon A Time body spray) HOWEVER, new scents are always something I am happy to give a go. After all, we get dozens of different variations of citrus scented Lush products, it’s about time we got more appley ones too!

Temptation’s scent is delicious and smells just like freshly sliced apples sprinkled in sugar and cinnamon powder. It’s the perfect scent to accompany you in the shower in the cold Winter months. Its scent is both warming and refreshing. 

As I said earlier Temptation’s consistency is thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up in your hands easily and the warmth from the cinnamon ingredients really comes through when mixed with the hot water and steam of the shower.

Once you’re out of the shower, Temptation’s scent (although a lot more subtle now) can be detected on your skin for several hours after using it. It also leaves my skin feeling clean, soft, and warm; Again, making it perfect for the cold Winter months we have ahead.

It cleanses my skin well and leaves it hydrated enough to get away with not moisturising after your shower, which saves me precious time. – Something we can all do with a bit more of!

I’m ridiculously impressed with the Temptation shower gel. It feels like forever since Lush released a shower gel that I enjoy using this much. The more I use it, the more I love it. My husband has even fallen for it too. – I’ll be ordering him his own bottle so that he doesn’t use all of mine…

Temptation blows older Valentine’s Day shower gels such as Prince Charming out of the water, I cannot wait to see if Lush release more products with this scent.
