First of all let me explain why there is a stock photo instead of my own, I received a large sample of this shower gel to try in a recent swap. Sadly it was not in the orginal packaging and in fact much to look at at all.
Lush is one of those brands that I love but cannot always justify spending money on. This sample was my first Shower Gel and I wasn't really sure what to expect. The consistency is quite thick almost like a liquified jelly and seems to coat the skin more than a highstreet shower gel. I also found I had to work slightly harder to get the gel to lather up. yet it seemed that you only needed a small amount for your whole body (my small sample gave me a week's worth of washes). Most importantly of course your skin feels soft and clean afterwards too!
The scent is amazing, it is really strong and yet at the same time not at all overpowering. It lingered in my bathroom for ages afterwards even with only the smallest amount being used! The main ingredient in this shower gel is grapefruit but it is mixed with the scent of frankincense and bergamot and sits somewhere in between fruity and spicy and is just hard to pin down.
For me this is a great shower gel to use in the morning, it is certainly feel awakening. I would repurchase this in a bigger size bottle in the future!
