Orangutan Bath Bomb from Lush #WestTobaForest

Lush are well known for doing a lot of work for charity and the Orangutan Bath Bomb is the latest of their charity bath bombs to be released.

The Orangutan bath bomb is raising money for the Sumatran Orangutan Society – you can read more about the work they do as well catching up on what has happened since Lush’s last fundraiser for them, through the selling of the Orangutan soap back in 2017, here: www.orangutans-sos.org.

While the Orangutan bath bomb is linked to the Orangutan soap it does not share the same scent. The Orangutan bath bomb shares its scent with the Lush Halloween classic, the Lord of Misrule bath bomb.

Like the Orangutan soap the Orangutan bath bomb is shaped like a mini orangutan. It’s quite a small bath bomb at only 90g but its attention to detail is beautiful. It contains, black pepper oil, Sumatran patchouli oil, vanilla absolute and kukui nut oil.

It has a strong and musky, peppery-herbal like fragrance. If you like the Lord of Misrule scent, you’ll love a huge amount of the upcoming products from this year’s Halloween line, there are a lot of Lord of Misrule scented newbies on the way!

With the Orangutan bath bomb being so small it is quite expensive BUT it is for charity so I can’t really complain. As I said earlier too, its design is incredibly intricate, it would have taken quite a while to make its mould with the 3D printers that Lush use.

As soon as the Orangutan bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of orange foam. Like the Avobath bath bomb, the Orangutan bath bomb isn’t a bath bomb that creates any bath art. Its unique selling point is definitely its design and the cause it has been made for.

Being honest as always, in use this charity bath bomb wasn’t as exciting as past charity products, especially when it is compared to the likes of the charity bath bomb from a few years ago, the IRL bath bomb but that’s just my personal opinion. I know that some customers prefer the less colourful bath bombs.

While the Orangutan bath bomb doesn’t create any bath art, it does turn the bath water a bright orange colour.

The Orangutan bath bomb dissolves very quickly; In less than 2 minutes of it being placed into the water it completely fizzles away.

I love how beautiful the Orangutan bath bomb is to look at. It’s lovely to also see that the sales of the Orangutan soap from 2017 have already made such a difference.

Overall it’s a good bath bomb for a good cause. I’d like to end this review with a huge thank you to the Sumatran Orangutan Society for all that they do for the Orangutans. Sadly we’re still a long way from being able to take Orangutans off of the endangered species list but I’m hopeful things will continue to improve with all of the Sumatran Orangutan Societies hard work.

Glitch Shower Gel from Lush

The Glitch Shower Gel was first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Father’s Day line. You may recognise its scent from a much-loved golden oldie Lush product the Avoshower shower gel. The Glitch shower gel is a revamped version of Avoshower and if I’m going to be honest, I actually much prefer it. We’ll get more into why a bit later…

This year Lush have released some amazing new shower gels and Glitch is up there with my favourites. Until we’ve seen this year’s Halloween and Christmas stock I can’t say for sure that it’s my favourite shower gel from 2022 but right now it’s in my top 3 for sure.

Unlike the Sticky Dates shower gel from this years Eid line, Glitch sadly wasn’t kept on once the Father’s Day line retired for the year, luckily I however managed to grab an extra 2 bottles before they had completely sold out.

The Glitch shower gel is a lovely and bright shade of green, it’s so bright it almost glows! It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency – which is the complete opposite of the same-smelling, super-runny Avoshower shower gel. It is lovely and creamy and also lathers up effortlessly too. Its ingredient list includes some of the following: Lemon balm infusion, lemongrass oil, bergamot oil, fresh lemon and lime juices and carrageenan extract.

Another popular product that shares its scent with the Glitch shower gel is the Avobath bath bomb, both are perfect products to use if you’re in need of a boost, there’s nothing like using Glitch shower gel first thing in the morning.

Its scent is so incredibly refreshing, its citrus rich and full of zing. Just a quick whiff of it from the bottle is enough to give you a little boost of energy. Mark my words, it’s a legendary shower gel, if Lush don’t bring it back again I will be very disappointed.

When it comes down to their new-release shower gels, Lush have really outdone themselves this year. As I have said in my previous 2022 shower gel reviews, Lush’s shower gel selection was in desperate need of new life and 2022 has been a brilliant year for Lush shower gels. Customers have demanded new shower gels and Lush have pulled through. Glitch has left me so excited for the new shower gels set to arrive in Autumn. If they’re half as good as Glitch we’re going to be very happy customers.

The Glitch shower gel lathers up easily and is super-duper creamy. I recommend adding a little of the shower water to it once it’s in your hands just to get it at the perfect lathering consistency, it’s incredibly creamy, one of the creamiest I’ve had from Lush. Adding a little water to it in your hands will ensure that a small amount of the shower gel goes a very long way. Without that extra water it would be quite gloopy.

Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its awakening scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with a ‘powerhouse of invigorating lemongrass, lemon balm tea and cleansing lime juice.’ Overall, I cannot recommend Glitch shower gel enough, it has certainly made any early mornings I face a lot easier to handle!

NEW Black Rose Bath Bomb from Lush

The Black Rose Bath Bomb has had a mini makeover; I have received a handful of emails asking why the Black Rose bath bomb in my 2018 review looks a little different to the one currently available in store and online so I thought I’d do a shiny new review.

Originally the Black Rose bath bomb was 1 of the 6 Lush Japan, exclusive bath bombs that were available to purchase in very limited amounts at the 2018 Lush Showcase; Each of the 6 bath bombs were sold for one hour only over the 2-day event.

Since the 2018 Lush Showcase the Black Rose bath bomb had become more readily available. For a little while Lush did actually discontinue it but brought it back, albeit with a slightly different look, hence this review.

At the point of writing this review, the Black Rose bath bomb is listed as a Lush bestseller. Bringing it back was a very wise idea, indeed!

The Black Rose bath bomb is quite the piece of art and is made to look just like a rose. The original version had red petal edges that were hand painted on to each individual bath bomb, now it is just a plain black rose. Without the painted on petal-edges I imagine it is now much quicker to hand make. – Even without the red edges, the bath bomb’s attention to detail is still just as beautiful as its previous version. Based on its looks alone I can see why it is still so popular.

Black Rose is a part of the Rose Jam scent family, you will most likely recognise it from the Rose Jam shower gel. The Rose Jam fragrance features heavily in several different Lush products throughout the year, it’s very popular so I could tell upon first sniff at the Lush Showcase that the Black Rose bath bomb would sell well.

The Black Rose bath bomb contains rose, geranium and Sicilian lemon oil. Although Rose Jam is primarily a floral based, rose-rich scent, it also has other depths to it with the addition of the lemon oil, this pinch of sourness really rounds off the scent, it’s almost musky. Rose scents are stereotyped as a scent for older people but the Rose Jam scent is and can be enjoyed by both youngsters, old dears and all those in between!

Now I think I shall address its colour, this isn’t the first only black bath product Lush have released. The first black bath bomb in my memory is the Secret Arts jelly bomb. I will admit, before using that for the first time I was terrified at the prospect of a very dirty bath after use, much to my surprise it wasn’t messy at all and neither was the Black Rose bath bomb.

With every bath bomb (even the light coloured ones) I do recommend using them in a clean bath as any bath bomb colour will cling to residue left in the tub (even the almost invisible stuff like soap scum.) If you do find yourself in a situation where a simple rinse with the shower head doesn’t work, my secret weapon is dish washer soap.

A sponge, hot water and dish washer soap cuts through grime and grease fantastically! I actually use it to clean my bath all the time. It’s that good a combo.

Once the Black Rose bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with an explosion of black foam sizzling out of the bath bomb, slowly turning the bath water a dark and shimmery black. From this point on, this new version of the Black Rose bath bomb is exactly the same as its older version, Bath art and all.

As the Black Rose bath bomb charges around your bath spreading black foam it doesn’t take long for the hidden purply-pink innards of Black Rose to make an appearance. The photos I took and have put in this blog post do the bath art that Black Rose creates no justice at all.

It’s a fairly slow fizzer but once it has all gone you are left with jet black, shimmery water with an ever so slightly purple tinge. Overall I really did enjoy using the Black Rose bath bomb, it left my skin smooth and soft to the touch, its light scent remained on my skin for several hours after getting out of the bath too.

Apart from the now absent painted-on-red-petal-edges, there’s not much difference between this version of the Black Rose bath bomb and the older one. Black Rose isn’t one of my favourite bath bombs but I would happily use it again as I’m a fan of its Rose Jam scent.

Sticky Dates Shower Gel from Lush

The Sticky Dates Shower Gel first became available to buy in April 2022 and was originally a part of Lush’s small but impressive, limited-edition Eid line. It proved very popular during the short space of time that it was available, prompting Lush to carry on selling it once Eid was over.

Whether it is now a permanent product, or just around until the summer products are retired for the year, has yet to be confirmed. There has however been rumours of a body spray equivalent so I should imagine the shower gel isn’t going away any time soon.

I’m not shy in saying that Lush’s shower gel selection has been in desperate need of new life since it discontinued the likes of The ComforterYuzu and Cocoa and Plum Rain shower cream and gels. The addition of the Sticky Dates shower gel really has drastically improved their all-year-round shower gel line.

The Sticky Dates shower gel looks just like chocolate sauce, it has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency and lathers up effortlessly too. Its ingredient list includes some of the following: Organic date syrup, vanilla pod infusion, sunflower lecithin, fresh orange juice, carob resinoid, benzoin resinoid and sandalwood oil.

Its scent is DELICIOUS, it smells just like a hot and gooey sticky toffee pudding with a generous scoop or 2 of vanilla ice cream. Its scent alone is what is going to catapult this shower gel into becoming Lush’s next bestselling product. Mark my words, it’s a legendary shower gel that you really need to try.

One of the things I really love about Lush is the thought that goes into each and every individual Lush product. Lush never just throw random ingredients together. During Eid, dates are quite often the first food to be eaten when breaking fast. Hence the Sticky Dates shower gel starting its life as a member of their Eid product line.

When it comes down to their new-release shower gels, Lush have really outdone themselves this year. As I said earlier on in this review, Lush’s shower gel selection has been in desperate need of new life and 2022 has been a brilliant year for Lush shower gel so far. Customers have demanded new shower gels and Lush have well and truly understood the assignment with its last few releases. They just keep getting better and better. I thought the Purple Carrots shower gel was top tier, but Sticky Dates is just as good if not better.

The Sticky Dates shower gel lathers up easily and despite its name isn’t at all sticky (so don’t be put off of trying it based on its name alone). A small amount of the Sticky Dates shower gel goes a very long way. Make sure you tell this to anyone you share a shower with. My husband liked it so much almost half of the bottle was gone in a week, I told him off for being wasteful. It’s good stuff but you don’t need to use very much to get the best out of it.

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 delightful sticky toffee fragrance. With 25% of the shower gel being made of date syrup, it is incredibly soft on your skin too. It seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does. Overall, I cannot recommend the Sticky Dates shower gel enough and I am so glad that Lush have decided to keep it on their shelves for a little longer than what was originally planned.

Light the Night Bath Bomb from Lush

The Light the Night Bath Bomb is one of Lush’s very first, limited edition Eid inspired products. It first became available earlier this year (2022) and was exclusively available to purchase in the weeks leading up to Eid 2022.

As you can see from the photos that I have included in this review, the Light the Night bath bomb is shaped just like a shimmery gold and purple lantern. Weighing in at approximately 110g, the Light the Night bath bomb is a little bit bigger than the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, but not by much!

The Light the Night bath bomb contains jasmine and vanilla absolutes, alongside those are a generous helping of rose syrup, labdanum resinoid and pomegranate molasses too.

When I first see that the Light the Night bath bomb had jasmine in it, I was worried I wouldn’t like its fragrance. Out of all of the fresh ingredients that Lush use in their products I feel as if the ‘Marmite’ ingredient is jasmine.

Customers seem to either love or hate it. I am not a huge fan of the jasmine fragrance but can stomach it in most Lush products.

Luckily, I actually didn’t mind the scent of the Light the Night bath bomb, the 2 more dominant fragrances I get from it are the jasmine and vanilla, there seems to be just the right amount of vanilla to round off the heaviness of the jasmine I tend to not favour. Light the Nights scent is a fairly light, vanilla-rich fragrance.

Considering the smaller size of the Light the Night bath bomb I have to admit that I think it’s a little overpriced. I rarely mention price in my Lush reviews as they are subject to change so often but (at the time of writing this review) the Light the Night bath bomb is priced at £6 each. Over the last few years, I have been really worried that Lush are beginning to price themselves out and I feel that with Light the Night, they are doing just that.

Quality wise Lush products are the best out there, all of the ingredients that they use are ethically sourced and of the best quality too, this has always reflected in the products prices but with bath bombs being single use products I find myself feeling a little robbed if I am charged anything over £4.50 per item.

As soon as the Light the Night bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of yellow, green and blue foam. It doesn’t take long for the bath bomb to start spinning around the water’s surface, creating peacock-like coloured bath art. 

My Light the Night bath bomb took approximately 7 minutes to dissolve; it creates the most incredibly soft bath-water and I found that it left my skin feeling super hydrated and soft too. Its scent didn’t really last on my skin once I got out of the bath but it made a huge difference on how my skin felt.

There’s nothing better than silky soft feeling skin after a relaxing bath.

Overall, I enjoyed the Light the Night bath bomb a lot more than I expected, as I said earlier the jasmine ingredient seems to be either a clear hit or miss with customers and for this bath bomb it was very much a hit for me. I am really looking forward to seeing what other holidays Lush begin to honour with future product lines after this years small yet amazing Eid line!

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.

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar from Lush

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Easter line. Designed to look like a superhero bunny, this all-gold bubble bar was one of the first of this year’s Easter products to catch my attention.

You may recognise The Easter Bunny bubble bars scent as it also features in one of Lush’s most popular Halloween products, the Sparkly Pumpkin.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar is approximately 130g so reasonably small in comparison to other bubble bars in its price range such as The Comforter, which, at the time of writing this review is only 50p more and 70g bigger.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar contains grapefruit, juniperberry and lime oils. Lush’s website describes The Easter Bunny bubble bath as an ‘eggciting citrus soak’.

The juniperberry in it warms you up and the grapefruit in it uplifts and brightens your mood. Its scent is a woody and gentle citrus blend. One thing I feel I must point out is that this bubbles bars scent wasn’t as strong as I’d have liked. If you favour the products with a more subtle scent, then The Easter Bunny would be a great choice for you.

To use the, The Easter Bunny bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars over their bath bombs is that they can be spread out over several baths. You could get 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Easter Bunny bubble bar although, I do recommend using the whole thing in one bath if you want to get the most out of its scent. What really lets down the, The Easter Bunny bubble bar is the weakness of its scent.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form and a little goes a long way if you’re looking for just bubbles. Using more bubble bar will help the scent be somewhat stronger. To reiterate what I said earlier, I recommend using the whole thing to get the most out of this bubble bar, scent and bubble wise.

Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a golden-yellow (the photo below does it no justice at all) it has the most spectacular golden shimmer dancing around it too.

An Easter Bunny bubble bath leaves your skin silky-smooth and well nourished. Its scent unfortunately doesn’t hang around on your skin for very long, I hope one day that Lush bring out a body lotion in its scent, after all we already have the body spray so it’s certainly doable.

Overall, I am glad Lush released this. As I’ve said, its scent could have been a little stronger but when used all at once it makes for a fantastic bath.

I hope Lush bring out more Sparkly Pumpkin/Easter Bunny scented products soon as it’s a scent I’d love to see carried on in to other product formats, a shower gel equivalent would be heavenly. Hint, hint Lush!

NEW SHAPE Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb from Lush

I’ve been asked several times now if the new shaped Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb is any different from the older one (found here).

I wasn’t going to review it as the changes really are purely decorative but the more, I get asked the more I think, I’ll just do a post on it!

The new shaped Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is the exact same ingredients, scent, and everything else as the previous one, the only difference is that Ickle Baby Bot now has a big belly, something I am guilty of getting myself over the years… 😉

Ickle Baby Bot’s new look is just as adorable as before and was redesigned still with children still in mind. It contains lavender, chamomile and sandalwood oil which is the perfect recipe to prepare you or your little ones for a great night’s sleep.

The Ickle Baby Bot has a very gentle formula and because of this was one of the first Lush products that I ever tried. I was told that it was suitable for babies from 6 months plus. Feeling safe with this knowledge, I figured that Ickle Baby Bot was a good first product choice for myself when I first got into Lush.

Ickle Baby Bot is a miniature sized, robot shaped, pastel-blue coloured bath bomb. As I said above it was designed with kids in mind and is desirable to both boys and girls.

I do not dislike the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, but I do prefer the alternative lavender-based bath bombs that are a bit more theatrical in the bathtub. I popped my very first Ickle Baby Bot into my bath then went straight to the toilet. Before I came back to it, it had already fizzled away.

As it is a smaller sized bath bomb, I wasn’t too surprised by this. Pushing bath time theatrics aside, I love how quick, simple, and effective the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is. Sometimes you just want to get on with your bath, making Ickle Baby Bot a popular choice for people pushed for time.

It really all depends on what you want out of the bath bomb you’re about to use. If a quick fix is what you’re after Ickle Baby Bot is a good choice.

An Ickle Baby Bot bath is perfect for the night-time. It can be made even better if paired up with the Sleepy shower gel and/or the Twilight bath bomb.

I love lavender and how versatile it is as an herb. It makes Ickle Baby Bot the perfect bath time buddy for winding down and clearing your head of any stress.

Being one of the cheapest bath bombs currently on offer, Ickle Baby Bot though very small remains a very popular bath bomb.

Gummy Bear Shower Jelly from Lush

The Gummy Bear Shower Jelly is a brand-new, limited-edition, Easter product that first became available in the UK at the start of March 2022. Designed to look just like the bear shaped sweets adored by children and adults alike, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pot.

Gummy Bear is a fairly small 85g, bright orange shower jelly. It fits perfectly in my hand making it very easy to use.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly contains coconut milk, fresh mango juice and the following essential oils, buchu, cardamom, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is new to Lush too, it smells of a strong, tropical-fruit-cocktail with a super-sugary sweet twist.

It’s a very punchy and heavy scent, if you like the bolder Lush-scent families, I’d recommend giving the Gummy Bear shower jelly a try.

With Gummy Bear being a character shaped shower jelly, I was hesitant to use it at first as unfortunately I find more often than not, that the character shaped jellies aren’t always as sturdy and robust as the normal pot shaped ones.

As predicted, Gummy Bear did begin to fall apart after just a few uses. However, I realised I’d rather use it and lose it than not use it at all! So far, I’ve used it 4 times and although it is showing wear and tear, there’s plenty more to go around yet.

There is no right or wrong way to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time – a good method if you’re sharing it with someone else.

If you do keep it whole, as I mentioned above, the Gummy Bear shower jelly is just the right size to fit snuggly in your hand. It is a lot easier to keep a hold of in the shower being this size. Once you’ve used it simply rinse it off and then pop it back into the pot until you next want to use it.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy, almost-milky foam. A little goes a long way and glides over your skin easily.

As I stated earlier its scent is strong. As soon as you take the pots lid off, you are hit with its fruity scent BUT in use it really comes alive. Mixed alongside the hot water and steam of the shower its scent literally engulfs your bathroom. It has a tartness to it that makes me think of fruit pastels and jelly babies.

After using the Gummy Bear shower jelly my skin feels soft, clean, and fresh, it also appears somewhat brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion either.

Overall I have enjoyed using the Gummy Bears shower jelly, it’s not my favourite from this year’s Easter line but I can see it selling quite well.
