The Abombinaball Shower Jelly is currently my favourite of the ‘surprise products’ that have been included in the new, monthly Lush-Kitchen-subscription-box.
With it sharing its scent and shape with the insanely popular Abombinaball bath bomb, I knew as soon as I see it that it was going to be one of those products that would cause a tidal wave of excitement to sweep over the Lush community.
At the time of writing this review, the Abombinaball shower jelly has only ever been available in May 2020’s Lush-Kitchen-subscription-box. Since getting a pot, I have been hoping that it would make a return as a limited-edition Christmas product this Winter BUT I’ve not heard anything as of yet so it’s not very likely.
Containing vanilla, infusions of fresh mint and orange peel alongside peppermint and Brazilian orange oils, the Abombinaball shower jelly really is a minty and creamy, vanilla-rich-treat.
As soon as you take off the shower jellies lid you are greeted with its mouthwatering fragrance, the Abombinaball scent really reminds me of the hard-boiled-sweets, Mint Humbugs. If you’re a fan of them, you’ll love this shower jelly.
As I said above, the Abombinaball shower jelly is character shaped. With character shaped shower jellies I find more often than not, that they aren’t always as sturdy and robust as the normal pot shaped ones, beginning to fall apart after just a few uses.
The Abombinaball shower jelly however goes against all odds and is very robust, lasting several showers before showing any signs of usage or wear and tear. I suspect this is because of its rounder shape. Other character-shaped shower jellies are normally small with a fragile and flat thin body such as the Bouncy Bunny Shower Jelly from Lush. Their delicate shape make them much easier to get through and use up.
In use I found that the Abombinaball shower jelly was incredibly hydrating, much more hydrating than any other shower jelly that I have used from Lush before. It lathered up quickly and left my skin soft and clean. The scent, although subtle lasted on my skin for the rest of the day too.
Overall I really liked the Abombinaball shower jelly, it was a wonderful surprise in Lush Kitchen’s first subscription box. It has set the expectations-bar of what wonderful products they dream up next very high!
