The Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly is brand new to Lush and a part of the 2022, Valentine’s Day line. Given that it is a Valentine’s Day product you’d expect the Strawberry Heart shower jelly to be the lovey-dovey, anatomically inaccurate heart-shape. Lush have however shaken things up a bit by making the shower jelly the anatomically ACCURATE shape, it’s shaped just like a real life human heart, (see photo below).
The Strawberry Heart shower jelly contains fresh strawberry juice, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils: Sicilian lemon, lime and ho wood. Its scent is a new one from Lush; It reminds me of the super-sour, sugary strawberry lace sweets, positively delicious!
As soon as you take off the Strawberry Heart shower jellies lid, you are greeted with its mouth-watering fragrance, it’s a very, very strong, juicy strawberry scent that quickly takes over the room it is in and even more so when you’re in a hot and steamy shower with it.
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, the Strawberry Heart 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 too. 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 special shaped shower jellies like Strawberry Heart often fall apart a lot quicker than the standard shaped ones; The Strawberry Heart shower jelly has however lasted me through 5 showers so far, making it incredibly cost effective, I can see myself getting many more showers out of it yet!
The Strawberry Heart shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy foam. A little goes a long way and glides over my skin effortlessly. As I stated earlier its scent is bold straight from the pot, but it really, really comes to life when you are using it in the shower. For such a small shower jelly it really does have a lot of stamina, scent and robusticity wise.
Normally shower jellies can be quite drying on my skin, the Strawberry Heart shower jelly however leaves my skin soft, clean, fresh, and appearing brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but also doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion once I am out of the shower.
Overall, I am really impressed with the Strawberry Heart shower jelly, it’s a fantastic addition to this year’s Valentine’s Day line and I can see it selling well.
