Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb from Lush

The Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb made its debut appearance at the February 2017 Lush Summit. Alongside it was a wide variety of other never before been released bath bombs such as Groovy Kind of Love, Yellow Submarine and Thundersnow. In amongst all of these beautiful new bath bombs it was hard for the rather plain looking Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb to stand out.

Unfortunately for me, the Cheer Up Buttercup was the last of the Summit bath bombs that I tried. I wasn’t able to get hold of one until months and months later when it came out in the Lush Kitchen. I believe it has been an Oxford Street store exclusive since late April 2017, I however live roughly 4 hours away from the flagship store so never got an opportunity to try it even then. Luckily it is now a staple store product so everyone can get it from the UK website and in UK stores.

The version of the Cheer Up Buttercup that is now readily available is a much smaller version than what was available at the Lush Summit. The Lush Summit version was the same size as the majority of Lush bath bombs such as the Blackberry and Intergalactic. This new and rather dinky version shares its size with the smaller variety of Lush bath bombs such as the old Think Pink, Butterball and Cinders bath bomb. Although I never tried the larger sized version of the Cheer Up Buttercup its smaller size makes no difference in its quality at all.

If you thought the Avobath was a good bath bomb to use to awaken your senses then Cheer Up Buttercup will blow your head off. For such a small bath bomb it really does throw out a serious amount of zingy, energy boosting vibes.

Bright yellow in colour and decorated with a light dusting of blue cornflower petals, the Cheer Up Buttercup is bright and bold. Packed with lemon, lime and neroli oil its scent cannot be ignored. When my postman delivered my parcel of my Cheer Up Buttercup bath bombs I could smell its gorgeous scent before even opening its lid. I know some people don’t like the strongly scented Lush products this one is however a game changer.

I don’t know any other way to describe this bath bombs scent, it’s got the zestyness of Dragon’s Egg, the sharpness of Avobath and then some more. Before I had even put the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb in the bath I knew I was going to love it.

For its smaller size the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb doesn’t dissolve as quickly as I had thought it would. What surprised me the most is how its scent stayed with you throughout your whole bath. Some Lush bath bombs lose their scent over time, the Cheer Up Buttercup however held its ground and I have never felt so lifted from a bath bomb before.

The Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb lives up to its name, its scent really does lighten up a dark mood, I find a lot of Lush’s citrus products to be refreshing none are however on par with Cheer Up Buttercup. Hidden inside the Cheer Up Buttercup is also a fair bit of coco butter. I had no idea that it did and was very surprised when I realised, what was already soft water was now soft and super, duper moisturising. The mix of the citrus oils and the coco butter leaves your skin soft, well hydrated and much brighter.

The Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb has a warm pink inside, once it has fully dissolved you are left with light orange bath water with a pinch full of blue cornflower petals floating on its surface. Once out of the bath the amazing scent of Cheer Up Buttercup remains on your skin, it however is more subtle which will suit those who prefer the gentler Lush scents.

Making the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb smaller was a very wise decision made by Lush. I am sure the larger version was just as good however you really don’t need it any bigger than it is now, the smaller size has the perfect quantity of everything in it. I’d go as far as saying it is one of my favourite bath bombs from Lush.

Hollywood Bubble Bar from Lush

Hollywood Bubble Bar.pngI love it when a Lush product that I have never heard of before appears on the Lush Kitchen menu. I can’t and don’t always order these rarities but when I see the Hollywood Bubble Bar, I just couldn’t resist.

Stars are my all time favourite shape. This is why the Twilight bath bomb was my very first. The Hollywood bubble bar is a cream coloured bubble bar decorated with one, perfectly shaped gold star.

Size wise, Hollywood is a medium sized bubble bar, large being the size of a The Brightside bubble bar, medium being Ladybird bubble bar sized.

Some have described it as quite plain. I agree, it is plain but sometimes less is more, especially when it comes down to Lush Cosmetics!

img_0209

The Hollywood bubble bar has a seductively floral, sweet scent. At first I was hesitant upon ordering it as I don’t always get on with the floral scented products.

Luckily when put in front of me, the first thing that I noticed was that its floral fragrance wasn’t too in your face, it is has subtle and likeable floral fragrance.

The jasmine and rose absolute in the Hollywood bubble bar compliment eachother perfectly. It makes for a very relaxing and refreshing bath, sinking yourself under a blanket of Hollywood bubbles is my idea of heaven on earth.

16729553_1919767108252508_5292907223143453105_n

You could easily get three generously bubbled baths out of just the one Hollywood bubble bar. They may be a little smaller than I’d have liked but knowing how many baths I can spread it out in makes me feel a little bit better about it.

Packed with eugenol the Hollywood bubble bar not only smells delightful but also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, mixed with the rose and jasmine absolute Hollywood is a real treat for your skin. The rose absolute soothes your skin while the jasmine absolute helps to freshen things up.

When you get out of a Hollywood bubble bath your skin feels fabulous, it’s soft, smooth and delicately scented for several hours afterwards. It makes you look and feel like an A-list celebrity, watch out Hollywood!

The only negative I have in regards to the Hollywood bubble bar is its price. I do not usually include product prices in my reviews as they are subject to change and keeping each review up to date would be very difficult, I however think I need to mention it for the purpose of this review.

At the time of writing this review (Feb 2017) the Hollywood bubble bar was retailed by the Lush Kitchen at £5.25. For that price I honestly expected it to be a lot bigger than it was. Yes, a little of it goes a very long way I however would like a bit more product for my money. It’s the dearest Lush bubble bar I have come across of its size.

I feel as if everyone would however be in favour of bigger versions of any of the Lush bubble bars though, after all, every single one of them is gorgeous for one reason or another.

No one would ever turn down the chance of having a little bit more of something they love and for me that does include the Hollywood bubble bar.

Ne Worry Pas Bath Bomb from Lush

Ne Worry Pas Bath Bomb.pngI could be wrong but I think the Ne Worry Pas Bath Bomb was the first that I ever bought from the Lush Kitchen. My memory is a little hazy, if it wasn’t my very first, Ne Worry Pas was definitely one of the first three. Containing a mixture of bergamot, cedarwood and jasmine oil, the Ne Worry Pas bath bomb is the perfect product if you are looking to settle a restless mind. It is one of the best combinations of ingredients for calming your nerves and uplifting your spirits.

I know a lot of people tend to ignore the white bath bombs because there are much more colourful options available, I however always go for them first. The So White bath bomb is a perfect example of one of the plainer and/or white bath bombs that aren’t what people expect on first appearance. When they revamped it last year (2016) I was in shock at how it turned out once in the bath. Bath bombs are very often not what we expect so I always tell people to give a product a try at least once.

The crisp white bath bombs are just super appealing to me. Maybe it’s how clean and refreshing they appear.

My favourite thing about the Ne Worry Pas Bath Bomb is its design and the story behind it. Looking at the above photograph anyone who hasn’t seen this particular bath bomb before will be wondering what the single, purple hole is all about.

The hole in this bath bomb is called the ‘Violet Keyhole’, the idea behind it is that you whisper your worries into the hole just before placing the Ne Worry Pas into the water. Once it is in the water you are expected to lie back, shut your eyes and relax, soaking in the blissful peace and quiet while your worries dissolve away with the bath bomb.

The very first time I tried this product, I kept the idea behind the product in my mind. I wasn’t expecting a big and colourful surprise or fantastic bath art and I did exactly as I was told, lie back, shut your eyes and relax. I really did feel better in myself by the time the bath bomb had dissolved.

Once the bath bomb has dissolved you are left with silky-soft, ivory water that leaves your skin velvety smooth and perfectly nourished. Although the Ne Worry Pas bath bomb is a very fast fizzer and doesn’t put much of a visual show on, it was the first bath bomb that made me realise that bath bombs can do so much more than change the colour of your bath water.

I have learnt over time that sometimes the bath bombs that lack colour and a visual show have wonderful hidden benefits. Until I did a little research on how Lush invented the bath bomb back in 1989, I had no idea that it was stemmed from ideas on how to practice aromatherapy at home safely. Once I learnt this I started to pay attention to each and every bath bombs ingredients and it has changed my life for the better.

Not only does a soak in a Ne Pas Worry bath help lull me into a calmer state of mind but it also soothes my skin. It’s light scent is also very good for defeating tension headaches, especially when paired with the Ultraviolet or Baa Bar bubble bars.

Ghost Shower Gel from Lush

The Ghost Shower Gel was on my Lush-must-haves list for a very long time before I finally got my hands on a bottle. It wasn’t on my list for quite as long as the Celebrate shower gel was, it was however on there long enough for me to breathe a sigh of relief once my online order of it had gone through.

The Ghost shower gel has a very gentle scent, on paper it isn’t actually a scent I would naturally gravitate towards as it is primarily floral. Be that as it may, my mind on its scent was soon changed after I had, had a sniff of my friends Moon on a Stick bath bomb, (it shares a scent with the Ghost shower gel). Without further a do, I quickly added everything Ghost scented on to my list of Lush-must-haves.

The Ghost shower gel has a long list of floralesque ingredients; Jasmine, ylang ylang, dove orchid, rose water and one of my favourites neroli. Looking at this long list you’d expect this shower gel to smell like your nan’s handbag, yet it doesn’t. It has a really creamy scent, I have seen some people over Instagram comparing it to Dove soap.

Ghost shower gels consistency reminds me of the So White shower gel. It needs a bit of a shake just before you use it. A lot of Lush’s shower gels need to have this done before use as the fresh ingredients used in them sometimes start to separate, this doesn’t mean that the product is going off it’s just the natural order of things when dealing with such fresh ingredients.

Ghost takes a little longer to lather up than other Lush shower gels, I also find that I need to use a little more of the product than I am used to with this type of Lush product. This is by no means a negative point though as I normally use very little of the shower gels per shower, I’d say a good 80% of Lush shower gels are ones where a little amount goes a long way, even though I am using more of Ghost it still isn’t nearly as much as I’d use from other shower gel brands.

I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and hydrated Ghost shower gel left my skin, I don’t know why but I seem to always convince myself that floral products will dry my skin out. I think the inclusion of rose water in this shower gel has helped a lot when it comes down to your skin. This shower gel would be a great product to use whilst on a sunny holiday as I can imagine it being very soothing on the skin after a day in the sun.

Ghost’s scent stays on your skin for a couple of hours after getting out of the bath/shower. I don’t dislike its scent, I just have other shower gels that I like more such a Hot Toddy, Twilight or Plum Rain. It is however a very good shower gel and it has opened up my senses, I am now eager to step out of my comfort zone and try other floral based products that I have avoided previously.

Rocket Science Bath Bomb from Lush


I am always giddy with excitement when Lush release new products. When my order of the Rocket Science Bath Bomb arrived earlier this week I couldn’t quite believe my eyes, it has such a beautifully intricate yet simple design. It’s a dark blue, rocket shaped bath bomb with a yellow flame tail, its tail is lightly decorated with a sprinkle of multicoloured stars like those found in the Golden Wonder and Stardust bath bombs.

For its current price (£2.95 as of 7th July 2017) I was expecting something a lot smaller so was pleasantly surprised with its size. It’s not particularly big like the Happy Pill bath bomb it just isn’t as small as I had envisioned, it fits perfectly in the palm of my hand.

It was just my luck that a new bath bomb would be released when the plumbing in my bathroom had give up the ghost, thankfully our plumber has fixed it, although it is only a temporary fix and could break again any minute… With this in mind I grabbed a Rocket Science bath bomb and got in the bath without further delay!

Rocket Science

As soon as the Rocket Science bath bomb hits the water it explodes with colourful foam. Scent wise this bath bomb is very unique. Containing both Sicilian lemon and bergamot oil it’s a fruity-citrus pairing, it has elements to it that remind me of the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb it however has a much sweeter and almost smoky layer to it too, I don’t want to say it’s like the, The Experimenter bath bomb as it’s far from it but it’s smoky sweet scent layer does remind me of it a little.

20106458_1999765610252657_9019764219862118867_n

As the bath bomb fizzes away blue and yellow foam fizzles out of it, giving the illusion of it actually gliding through your bath water. It isn’t long after placing it in the water that it begins to gently charge around the bath leaving a yellow, star scattered streak behind it, much like a plane in the sky that leaves a small line of cloud behind.

What really surprised me is that the Rocket Science bath bomb has pink insides too! the yellow slowly disappears and then suddenly pink bursts out of it. If you’re like me and always hunt for the Intergalactic bath bomb with the most pink in it then this bath bomb is perfect for you. I am so blown away with all of the colours that Rocket Science displays, I was not expecting it to create such wonderful bath art.

Overall I am very impressed with this bath bomb, it is a fantastic edition to the Lush bath bomb family. It’s refreshing, sweet, uplifting and using it leaves me feeling energised and content. It is also very hydrating for the skin and the scent stays with you for a good 4 to 5 hours after using it too.

Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume from Lush

Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume.pngThe Yuzu and Cocoa Scent is a Lush fragrance that I know I would adore in any format that Lush choose to make it into. Alongside the Comforter it was one of the first Lush scents that I fell in love with. When the Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume came up on the Lush Kitchen menu a month or so ago, I was of course ridiculously excited. On the rare occasion that the Kitchen do release a perfume, they sometimes do both a liquid and a solid version. In the most recent week that the Lush Kitchen had Yuzu and Cocoa perfume on their menu, it had both the liquid and the solid versions up for grabs. Yay!

I rarely buy the liquid perfumes, opting for the cheaper solid versions instead, however if it’s a scent that I know I love, I do treat myself and grab a liquid. The liquid perfumes are quite pricey but since trying them I now wouldn’t buy my perfume from anywhere else. The quality that Lush make their perfumes to makes every penny you pay for them worth it.

yuzu-cocoa-plusSharing its scent with both the shower cream and bubbleroon of the same name, shown in the photo above, the Yuzu and Cocoa liquid perfume is everything I imagined and more. One spray on the wrist leaves me smelling like jaffa cakes all day through. When I want the perfume to be a little stronger I also do one spritz on my clothes. Although I bitterly regret not buying the Yuzu and Cocoa solid perfume too, being able to spritz a bit of perfume on your clothes instead of just being able to rub it on your skin does give the liquid perfumes an advantage over the solids. Another thing I like to do with this perfume in particular is spray one spritz into my hair, my hair just carries the scent so well and everyone likes nice smelling hair!

I have only just started to include Lush perfume reviews on Lush Upon A Time as I know there isn’t too much you can say about a perfume, especially if you have reviewed something that shares the scent before. What people want to know is, one, does it smell good? and 2, does it last? The answer to both of those questions are yes. I would buy this perfume time and time again if given the opportunity. The Yuzu and Cocoa scent always leaves me wanting more, I will even admit to declaring that the shower cream smelt so good on my skin after using it, that it made me want to eat my own arm.

I have my fingers crossed that the UK Lush Kitchen follow in Lush Kitchen Japan’s footsteps as they have just released a batch of Yuzu and Cocoa body lotion. If I ever got my hands on a pot of that I’d be one very happy Lushie… Fingers crossed!

Snowshowers Shower Jelly from Lush

Snowshowers Shower Jelly

As soon as you take the lid off of the Snowshowers Shower Jelly you are greeted with the comforting and refreshing scent of warming cognac, sweet orange and zesty lime. As its name indicates, Snowshowers is of course a Winter product. I however always have a pot around whatever the season as its scent (named by Lush as the ‘Celebrate’ scent) is one of my favourites.

Lush Cosmetics master scents. Once a scent is mastered, over a very long period of time (sometimes years) they create an abundance of products that share that mastered scent. This is where the Lush term ‘scent family’ comes from, if a product shares the same scent as another new or old one, it’s a part of that scents family.

The Celebrate scent that Snowshowers has, can also be found in a wide range of other Lush products. There’s the Golden Wonder bath bomb which happens to be the product that first introduced me to the Celebrate scent, the Celebrate shower gel and the Celebrate body lotion to name just a few.

19732006_1995256894036862_643184750654730031_n

Snowshowers shower jelly is a fairly robust product, some of the Lush shower jellies such as the Bouncy Bunny tend to break up really easily but not Snowshowers. I like to use my shower jellies in the same way as you would a bar of soap. Some people however prefer to chop their jellies up, using one piece at a time. It’s all about personal preference, I just prefer to use mine as a whole as I feel it gives me a much better, much creamier lather, plus I love how it feels being worked along my skin, it’s so, so relaxing. Especially on the soles of your feet.

*This is the point of the review where my husband regrets secretly using my Lush shower jellies. ha, ha, I use them on my feet!*

I have found that even with frequent use, Snowshowers takes a very long time to start showing any signs of wear and tear, it takes a good few weeks before it starts to get noticeably smaller which is quite rare for a shower jelly, the only one that I have used that has been as robust as this was the Santa’s Belly shower jelly. Unfortunately nothing lasts forever, I do however find that the Snowshowers shower jelly still lathers up just as well as it did from day one after every use, its quality doesn’t depreciate with age, its scent also remains just as strong right up until the very last slither is left.

SNOWSHOWERSEXTA

Unfortunately I find that the Snowshowers shower jelly leaves my skin quite dry and in need of a little extra hydration after use. I’m not quite sure why it does make my skin feel so dry as I normally always find that the shower products that lather up as well as Snowshowers does the most moisturising.

This problem is however easily solved as a quick dab of Celebrate body lotion once I am out of the shower bounces my skin back into a tip top, perfectly hydrated condition. As the Celebrate body lotion and Snowshowers shower jelly share a scent, using the both together intensifies its gorgeous fragrance further, leaving its scent to stay on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, which is more than perfect for me as I’m a huge fan of the Celebrate scent.

Overall I am very impressed with the Snowshowers shower jelly, it’s a great product that lasts well beyond 10 uses. I know some people shiver at the thought of a Lush bath bomb only being used in one bath, instead maybe a shower jelly is the product for them? If you’re looking to convert someone like this to the Lush side, this shower jelly could just be the product that wins them over!

The Comforter Solid Perfume from Lush

19554980_1993546407541244_8635120718968266144_nOver the past 12 months my love for the Comforter scent has grown at a ridiculously rapid rate, the bubble bar was actually my very first Lush product. I of course couldn’t get enough of it, it alongside the Twilight bath bomb was what first got me hooked on Lush.

When Lush Oxford Street opened their doors presenting London with the Comforter shower cream I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle. Once I got it home it however smelt completely different from the bubble bar, I didn’t like it at all, for me the blackcurrant scent was far too rich, it actually reminded me of the salty drink they make you drink after having a stomach bug. Without giving it a proper chance I gave my one bottle of The Comforter shower cream straight to my friend and from that day apart from the bubble bar, I went on in the Lush world ignoring all Comforter scented products.

It wasn’t until the Lush Kitchen released a Comforter scented shower jelly in 2016 that I decided to give the scent another try. I had been invited to attend the Lush Showcase as press and it was there in the Lush Kitchen pop-up-shop that I fell in love with the shower jelly. I am so glad I gave it another chance as it has become one of my all time favourite Lush scents, I even love the shower cream now!

phonto-1

My new found love of the Comforter scent had unfortunately started to blossom far too late in the chronology of the Lush world. I’d missed the Comforter solid perfume,  body conditioner and body lotion in the Lush Kitchen, all I could do was cross my fingers and hope that something that was Comforter scented (and new to me) would appear on the Lush Kitchen menu…

A few weeks ago I got very lucky and found a The Comforter Solid Perfume on ebay, it was actually cheaper than if I had ordered it straight from the Lush Kitchen, it was basically brand new to look at too. I am still very pleased with myself. The seller hadn’t even taken off the lid so it was as fresh as a daisy. When it arrived in the post in such perfect condition, I squealed with delight!

The Comforter solid perfumes consistency visually resembles Vaseline, it however isn’t as soft and easily manipulated to the touch as Vaseline is. I’d describe it as more like cooled, solid candle wax. The warmth of your finger heats up just enough of the product to put on your wrists and neck. It is the perfect consistency as it stops you from using too much by accident, a little of the perfume goes a very long way.

19702062_1993546430874575_8457762863612636250_n

I have put my The Comforter solid perfume on every day since I got it and it doesn’t appear to be getting noticeably smaller on use, in fact it is showing no signs of usage at all. The product in the tin still looks just as full as when it was new, the only noticeable difference I can actually see is the unavoidable fingerprints left on its surface by my index finger from when I am applying it of a morning…

Out of all of the Lush solid perfumes that I have tried I’d say that The Comforter is one of the best. Not just because I can never get enough of the scent but because when you put it on it stays on. So many perfumes rarely stay on all day, I am therefore over the moon to know that a dab of the Comforter solid perfume WILL last on me all day, it even stays on me when I’ve been in the swimming pool doing my physio exercises!

The one and only negative thing I can say about this perfume is in regards to how it is packaged. Getting the product out of the small tin is annoyingly difficult with my long nails. I think all of the solid perfumes would work much better in a tube package like the ones used for Lush’s The Kiss lip gloss, doing this would make the product so much more practical when it comes down to application.

Uluru Bath Bomb from Lush

Described as the next best thing to experiencing the truly beautiful Australian outback sunsets I can never help but grab a few Uluru Bath Bombs when they become available in the Lush Kitchen. The Uluru bath bomb is an orange and dusky pink bath bomb designed in a very similar way to the Frozen bath bomb, it is mostly orange but has a dusky pink belt around its middle. The colours of this bath bomb have been very cleverly selected for showcasing a kaleidoscope of Australian sunset colours; Oranges, yellows, pinks and corals.

The Uluru bath bomb shares its scent with the shower gel that goes by the same name, the shower gel is another Lush Kitchen item I always grab if and when possible.

The Uluru bath bomb has a wonderful mix of summery ingredients, Brazilian orange, sandalwood and lemon myrtle oils to name a few. Scent wise the Uluru bath bomb is quite literally Summer in bath bomb form.

The Uluru bath bomb is a gloriously rich, citrus-scented product. If you have read any of my previous Lush reviews you’ll know that I favour the citrus products as I feel they are an easy way to add a little bit of energy and cheer to your day. The Uluru bath bomb on its scent alone is a citrus fans dream product and once it gets plonked into the water it just gets better.

Although design wise the Uluru bath bomb is similar to the Frozen bath bomb, it isn’t a smidge on par with its level of foam producing once in the water. This means it lacks in the bath art department however it has talents elsewhere. The Uluru bath bombs scent totally dominates the bathroom and lulls you into a calm and refreshed state of mind.

Packed with a shed load of coarse-sea-salt, the Uluru bath bomb is not only an excellent product for your skin when it is in need of some love, softening and hydration but also great for tired and sore muscles too. When ever I use the Uluru bath bomb it always gives me a boost no matter how low or tired I feel.

The Uluru bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer which isn’t a negative point from me, its quick reaction with the water means that I can lay back and relax a lot quicker than I can when using other bath bombs, it also means I get a little longer to soak in the beautiful Uluru bath water too.

Up against its shower gel equivalent, the Uluru bath bomb is far more moisturising for your skin, both leave your skin appearing brighter and feeling softer but the bath bomb is definitely the better option for dehydrated skin for sure.

Overall I am immensely impressed with the Uluru bath bomb, I was a little disappointed with the lack of bath art it created but it has more than enough positive traits shown in its appearance and performance elsewhere.

Uluru Shower Gel from Lush

img_3802

Described as the perfect way to ‘smother yourself in sunshine,’ the Uluru Shower Gel is quite literally Summer in a bottle. Inspired by the always beautiful Australian sunsets, I can never help but pick up a bottle of it whenever it comes up on the Lush Kitchen menu.

If you have read any of my other Lush reviews previous to this one, you’ll know that I tend to favour the Lush products that have a citrus twist, I am therefore unconditionally in love with the Uluru shower gel on its scent alone, it is a citrus fans dream shower gel.

The Uluru shower gel contains a variety of cheery and uplifting ingredients, sandalwood, lemon and Brazilian orange oil to name a few. Together they make a deliciously zesty shower gel that brightens your skin and your soul. I haven’t mentioned it in this post so far as I haven’t reviewed it yet but Lush also do an Uluru bath bomb.

img_3799

As you can see in the picture above, the Uluru shower gel is a bold, bright and beautiful orange colour. Its consistency is a lot like the Snow Fairy shower gel, not too thick and not too runny either. Some Lush shower gels are a little runnier due to all of their natural ingredients (essential oil etc), the Uluru shower gels consistency is however in my personal opinion, just right.

Lush products are all hand made and when put on the shelves are normally even fresher than most foods you find in the supermarket. All products wherever you shop have a shelf life. This is not an indication that your product goes off by this time though. Some products like Lush’s Prince Charming shower cream do start to separate after a few months, a good shake of the bottle however makes the cream (in Prince Charming’s case) go back to normal.

I have a bottle of Uluru shower gel that is well over a year old and it hasn’t separated at all. In comparison to the Prince Charming shower cream, this shower gel lasts. It looks, smells and works in the exact same way as when I very first got it which is always a bonus.
img_3803

I find that the Uluru shower gel lathers up really quickly and with ease too, a little of it also goes a very long way. Even though this is the case I always over indulge with it as I can never get enough of the scent.

I wouldn’t say my skin was particularly moisturised after using it, I do however notice that my skin appears brighter and feels softer after use. Overall I am very pleased with the Uluru shower gel, it’s the perfect summer pick me up.

One day I would really like to see Lush bring out a body lotion equivalent so that I can moisturise myself with something of the same scent.
