Butterball Shower Gel from Lush

Butterball Shower Gel.pngRegrettably I only got into the Butterball products last year (2016). I am now however well and truly making up for it as every time a Butterball product becomes available I snap it up.

The Butterball Shower Gel is the thickest shower gel I have tried from Lush Cosmetics. Its consistency resembles more of a shower cream. It is however, much stockier than Lush shower creams, I can completely understand why some confuse it with a body butter or shower smoothie.

The Butterball shower gel shares its scent with the Butterball bath bomb. In my opinion they aren’t exactly the same, the shower gel is a lot more chocolatey than the bath bomb equivalent. Despite this, both are products I like and would recommend.bbb123The Butterball scent always reminds me of Christmas, this is because of the Butterbear bath bomb. Butterbear is identical to the Butterball bath bomb the only difference being its shape and weight. For the last few years Butterbear has been a very popular Christmas-time Lush product, it was the first product I tried in the Butterball scent and I guess this is why I associate the scent with Christmas.

I find that the smallest blob of the shower gel goes a very long way especially when used alongside hot-as-you-can-stand-it water.

My skin adores Butterball and because of this I always go back for seconds. If I have used the shower gel I do not need to moisturise after getting out of the shower or bath. It leaves my skin perfectly hydrated, soft and smelling of chocolate chip, shortbread biscuits.butterball group.pngMy other half seems to like it a lot too, he would never admit it but I can always tell when he does take a shine to one of my shower gels, they run out at such a ridiculous rate when he does. I know I said I go back for seconds when it comes to the Butterball shower gel but I honestly use such a small amount as it’s all you need.

He has no idea of how precious some Lush products are, Butterball is only available in the Lush Kitchen so I can’t just grab another bottle, he isn’t even that much bigger than me yet in just one shower he manages to use triple the amount I would do. He obviously can’t get enough of it, I think it is one of his secret favourites for sure.

The last thing I’d like to point out is how versatile Butterball shower gel is, it works well alongside so many other Lush products making it a very good ingredient to add to any Lush cocktails you may have in mind. It is because of this, its beautiful scent and its skin loving ingredients that makes the Butterball shower gel an essential product in my bathroom.

Butterball Bath Bomb from Lush

butterball-bath-bombThe Butterball bath bomb is one of those products that forever live in the shadow of other more attractive and pleasing on the eye, bath bombs.

With the likes of Frozen and Yoga Bomb to compete with, you can see why Butterball may get ignored and left at the bottom of your drawer…

This year I however promised myself that when it comes to Lush, I would stop just going for the products that speak to me straight away. This is when I decided to give the Butterball bath bomb a go and ever since I’ve been kicking myself for not using it sooner.


Butterball is a small bath bomb compared to most of the other Lush ones. Its smaller price tag however reflects its size so I do not see its smaller size as an issue.

For comparison purposes I’d say that the Butterball bath bomb is close, if not the same in size to the Think Pink bath bomb.

I’ve said many times before and I am sure to say it many times again but never judge a bath bomb until you’ve given it a go in the bathroom.

Believe it or not, not everyone goes for the bath bombs that are bright, colourful and whizz-pop, whizz-bang. Some prefer the softer coloured ones and want to enjoy the bath bombs ingredients rather than just watch a colourful, bath time show.


Butterball is a very gentle bath bomb that has a soft and creamy scent. It contains small chunks of cocoa butter pieces in it that slowly melt as the bath bomb fizzes away.

I was advised to use the Butterball bath bomb in a ‘hot as I could stand it’ bath and wow does it make a difference when you do.

The cocoa butter in this bath bomb soothes tired, dry and irritated skin. My skin absolutely adores the carefully selected ingredients of Butterball. There isn’t very much in it, but that by no means dictates that it’s a bad or boring bath bomb.

My skin just soaks up all of the goodness of its ingredients and once I get out of the bath my skin stays silky smooth and I smell good enough to eat.


As I said earlier the Butterball bath bomb doesn’t put much of a show on in the bath tub and is better desired by those that are looking for something gentle and a little less in your face.

It’s a very good choice of bath bomb to use if you haven’t tried any before and it’s also one that works great as an ingredient for a Lush-bath-cocktail.

I recommend using it with one of Lush’s shower creams, Prince Charming and Yuzu and Cocoa in particular, although any shower gel or cream would work as the Butterball bath bomb is reasonably plain and therefore very versatile.

Pip Gift Set from Lush

I don’t normally buy the Lush gift sets, I however couldn’t resist picking up a few after I spotted them in Lush Oxford Street when I visited in October.

My favourite of what I could find was the Pip Gift Set. I just couldn’t resist this happy little penguin and his funky orange scarf!PIP Gift Set.png

Inside the Pip gift set is 1 Butterball bath bomb and 1 Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb.

Yes, buying the 2 bath bombs individually is slightly cheaper but I quite like the idea of presenting them in a knot wrap like this, it’s creative, different and sure to impress.

Not only does it look super cute but it also saves you some time and that’s something that everyone needs more of, especially at Christmas!

As well as saving you time, using a knot wrap instead of gift wrap helps the planet. I am marrying a site manager of a recycling center so I cannot escape this knowledge… I know there are different rules for different areas but where we live a very high percentage of the gift wrap used at Christmas just goes straight to landfill and that’s not good.

Using knot wraps as an alternative to wrapping paper is a great solution to help the planet. Knot wraps can be used time and time again. Tying them up may appear tricky but it is in fact very easy, there are hundreds of different ways of doing it, I learnt how to do them from watching Youtube tutorials.

If you aren’t any good at stuff like that and the Youtube tutorials still have you puzzled do not worry! – The Pip gift set comes ready wrapped and if you did want to try another for someone else the shop assistants at Lush are always more than happy to help you knot-wrap your product purchases!

As mentioned above the 2 bath bombs included in the Pip gift set are the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb and the Butterball bath bomb.

To see the review on the Butterball bath bomb click here. Butterball is very similar to the Butterbear bath bomb but is sold all year round as opposed to the Butterbear bath bomb only being available in the winter months.

Overall I really like this gift set and I think it would make a very good present to someone who you want to turn into a Lushie or for a Lushie you already know of.
