Lush Plum Rain Shower Gel – Review

Recently it hit me that I had not tried Plum Rain in a long time which is shocking because as you know if you read my blog a lot I love Lush. Plum Rain came out in stores this year so it is the newest shower gel Lush have currently. I had already tried this because it had been released in there flagship Oxford street store.  
The first thing which you notice when you see this shower gel is how vivid the purple the shower gel I can not remember a lot of shower gels which are actually purple and as some of you may know I do actually like this colour. This is one of the things which attracts me to this shower gel. 
The scent of Plum Rain is one which is very unique and is not one which a has it own scent family at lush which I know is really common for Lush. Plum Rain has Umeboshi in which apparently translates into Japanese Salt Plum this is what gives it a sweet, salty and sour scent which I know sounds really crazy.  To me when I smell this scent I think of the freshness when it is a fresh crisp morning for some reason. However, when I use this in the shower I get a different scent however, this is not something which I can put my finger on. I will admit that on dry sniff this is not one of my favourite shower gels however, this can change when I am using it in the shower due to the scent change when it comes into contact with water.  Umeboshi is meant to help reduce the feelings of fatigue and supports the immune system to get body of coughs and colds; mandarin oil uses its citrus powers to brighten the skin and revive your senses, so it’s an well-rounded crowd pleaser. So this may be one which you want to use in the winter months.

This shower gel is very thick even thicker than some of Lush’s normal shower gels which as you is hard as a lot of them are very thick. It is also a shower which lathers very well which means that it is going to a long way. I think this little bottle actually ended up lasting me between 4-6 weeks which is amazing because I used it every single day and sometimes ended up using it twice a day. 

Overall this is one shower gel which I would love to repurchase again in the future however, I do have a couple of 250g of shower gel in this scent so it is going to be one which will be seen in my shower again in the future. 

Have you tried a Plum scented shower gel?

Lush- 93,000 Miles Shower Jelly Review

Shower Jellies where not something I had actually used until I fell in love with Lush which my addiction did not start till a few years ago. The reason I purchased this item was due to the fact that I had really bad shoulder pain and I had mentioned this in store and I got this amazing Jelly recommended to me.  I do actually freeze these showers jelly’s because I find them more effective then using them normally and have found that I do not drop them as often as when they are in their normal format.

This product has a base of euclyptus and mint which help soothe muscles and pain which is something I adore because if you know me you know I usually have a complaint. It usually is my back or shoulders because no joke I carry the weight of the world on my own shoulders and it is not good for me.  The mint element of this product does actually help reduce and relieve tension and should leave muscles relaxed and recuperated.

This jelly I love to use when I am warm I don’t actually know if it is because of the ingredients which can be found within it or if it is because it is frozen and the cool element feels amazing. It actually wakes me up and  because I wake up really early in the morning usually before 6 it is a product which I need on dark horrible mornings to make me alive.

If you have ever used Lush Wiccy Magic massage bar or deep heat 93,000 miles shower jelly actually reminds me of these scents. I think the reason behind this is due to the eucalyptus element it also has a ton of cinnamon oil in which makes it almost spicy but it does not actually make me think of Christmas. Like cinnamon usually do it is one which is great for a number of senses. 

This shower jelly does lather up not as well as some of the shower gels however, it does give you enough soft foam bubbles which will allow you to be come super clean. You can tell the product is working because of the sensations which you receive when you have been using this product is is almost a cooling sensation. 

I actually get relief which gives me a couple of hours of relief from the poor aching muscles and relax me which I prefer using compared to products such as deep heat. The reason behind this is because it does not feel as medical and I can use this for a long time.

I have been using this product for about 5 months and still have plenty of it left, I think I have heard that these small pots of jelly can last up to a 18 months.  I use mine whole and just rub it against my body when I am in the shower which allowed it to lather up. I know a lot of people cut them up and then use them I usually due but because this is a frozen shower jelly it is the reason I have not actually cut it up. 

I am not saying you have to use this frozen it is just the way I use it

Have you ever used a shower jelly?
