I am not ashamed to admit that I screamed the house down when I first heard that Lush were releasing an Intergalactic scented limited edition shower gel. The Intergalactic bath bomb is one of my all time favourite Lush products and I have been hoping that Lush would create and release other Intergalactic scented products ever since I first tried the bath bomb back in 2015.
The Intergalactic Shower Gel is a beautiful shade of blue and is decorated with a generous sprinkling of lustre. Colour wise it’s a lighter blue than the bath bomb, it almost has an aqua-green tinge.
Below is a photo of a small blob of the shower gel on a white background. The photo does the shower gel no justice at all, you really, really have to see it in all its sparkly glory for yourself.
Containing peppermint, grapefruit, vetivert and cedar wood oil, the Intergalactic shower gels scent leaves you feeling positively refreshed. Just like the bath bomb the ingredient that stands out to me the most scent wise is the peppermint.
When I first smelt the shower gel straight from the bottle I must admit I was a little disappointed. It was similar to the Intergalactic bath bomb but not quite the same, the only way I can describe it is that it seemed to be a lot more peppery and dry.
Once I however got the chance to use the Intergalactic shower gel its scent mixed with the hot water and steam washed away all of the disappointment I had felt. Its scent during in use smells just like the bath bomb, it couldn’t be more alike.
Consistency wise the Intergalactic shower gel is just how I like it, not so thick that you can hardly get it out of the bottle and not too thin that you lose it all at the slightest tip of the bottle. A little amount of the shower gel goes a very long way so is very good value for money, I was also really pleased with how easily it lathered up.
Its scent didn’t last on my skin for as long as the bath bomb does but it was still there for a good few hours. It wasn’t particularly moistursing but it didn’t leave my skin dry either. An Intergalactic body lotion to use after it would be absolutely perfect. Hint, hint Lush… 😉
Over all I am really happy with the Intergalactic shower gel. The Intergalactic scent works so well in the shower gel format, I’m in shock that Lush hadn’t released it long before now. I have my fingers crossed that this limited edition shower gel becomes a permanent product at some point, it’s that good!
