Sex Bomb shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs

Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*

However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.

Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.

Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.

And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.

I SEE you Sex Bomb shower gel! ❤️

Groovy Kind of Love shower gel

3 or 4 out of 5 rating

Some days i think it a 4, and other days i think its a 3.

This is one of six shower gels that Lush made just because, from our favorite in-store bath bombs.

While im quite enamored with the woody, fruity scent of the bath bomb, the scent in the shower gel doesnt quite translate tjat similarly. That said its still a good smelling shower gel. It translates to a straight up bubble gum scent.

The look of the bomb is a rainbow of bright colors, and so the bath bombs scent is also multi layered with contrasting notes of woodiness and fruitiness.

The shower gel isnt quite as much of a mixture of notes as it is a muddiness of scents. Intetestingly this blending becomes bubblegum.

My husband is even less impressed by this shower gel, he does NOT like the scent. He says it smells like bad breath. Yikes. I dont get that at all but your mileage may vary. *closes the lid of the bottle with a loud snap*

Its a nice thick bright orange shower gel.

It doesnt have glitter because the bath bomb has no glitter.

If you like bubblegum scents you’ll love this shower gel.

Guardian of the Forest shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

I am very excited that Lush included Guardian of the Forest in their newest ‘we’re making shower gels of your favorite bath bombs just because’.

As i state in my video i think of GOTF as a new classic Lush green scent. Its both deep green but also bright with cypress.

Its a translucent gel. I was somewhat disppointed that it doesnt have glitter since the bath bomb has emerald green glitter but its not a huge deal because im just glad to have a nice green smelling shower gel to enjoy!

It smells like I’m in a forest or a fairy glade only not quite as woody as the bath bomb.

Rosewood, oakmoss, cypress, and lime.

The gel is nice and thick and it lathers up nicely on my skin.

Its such a soothing, grounding scent.

The forest is alive. Can you hear the trees whispering the secrets of the earth to you? They beckon you onward. Feel the carpet of cool, thick moss beneath your bare feet as citrus sunlight breaks through the trees ahead, gilding the world in dappled gold and green. Follow the footsteps of a mysterious creature and emerge into a clearing, a trickling waterfall in a glade of rosewood and cypress – the heart of the forest. Let the ethereal tranquility surround you as you step beneath the water, earthy oakmoss and cleansing lime washing away any trace of the world beyond. It’s just you and the trees.

List of ingredients

Golden Pear jelly

5 out of 5 rating (in my opinion)

Please know-my husband and my daughter seperately did NOT like this jelly 🙂

As i said, and showed, in my haul video the consistency of this is perfect. Its firm and solid, not broken nor mushy. And Its gold! Straight away i can smell the strong scent of pears! It’s a stronger pear scent than in the soap even!

I can smell each of the ingredients; pear puree, cardamom, orange and just a smidge of sandalwood. Mostly i smell pear. My husband and daughter interpret this real pear smell to be similar to a paint smell. No matter how hard i try all i smell is pear. This wild swing in scent descriptions is similar to the mystery of the Great pyramids. Most of the time i can get why some things smell different to people. All I smell a vat full of juicy, sweet pears.

The color is golden all the way through. It leaves NO gold color whatsoever anywhere on your skin.

I literally like this jelly scent more than the golden pear soap, bomb, or body spray. I didn’t expect to like this so much to be honest.

As far as use i would use the bath bomb before i would reach for the jelly. But that said- im loving using this jelly.

Just a small note: golden pear jelly is not as creamy/conditioning as the Yummy mummy jelly.

Yummy Mummy jelly

5 out of 5 rating

Lush Uk have created 9 Community Favorites shower jellies.

Community favorites means; Lush asked us what our favorite product/scents are. Then they took the top nine answers with the most votes, and they made those nine into shower jellies!

Five of these jellies have not been made before. Three of these; Twilight, Sweetie Pie, Calacas have been made previously.

Yummy mummy is one of the scents that won and that Lush made a jelly of. I for one am SO glad because its one that i wouldve voted for. I have seven bottles of Yummy Mummy shower gel. And i once bought twenty Roller bath bombs. So i REALLY love this fruity, carmely scent.

Yummy mummy is made with strawberry puree, orange oil, tonka bean.

It smells like a strawberry shake.

This is what i originally imagined American Cream to smell like. Lol.

It took an enormous amount of control to buy only one pot of Yummy Mummy shower jelly.

Shower jellies can be used as soap, either whole, sliced, chopped up or frozen.

They can also be used as shampoo. And they can be used to get nice bath foam in the tub by holding it in your hand underneath the waterspout.

I used it whole, which i never do, and it worked really well. I was able to hold onto it without it dropping but your mileage may vary.

I washed with this and it smelled nice and strong. Its creamy like the Yummy Mummy shower cream.

It made a regular amount of creamy but foamy lather, not too much and not too little.

It didnt fall apart or anything. I just put it back in the pot when i was done showering with it.

Lush are selling these in the large size so this will last for months.

It has a 14 month expiry date.
