Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel Review

Hey everyone!

I recently finished my little bottle of Rose Jam Shower Gel that I got in a gift set during last year’s boxing day sale. It has taken me so long to get through it!

Hope you enjoy my review! 🙂


Rose Jam Shower Gel (100g)

Rating: 5/5

Cons:

This shower gel smells super, super sweet. If you don’t like sweet smells then steer away from this one!

People say this shower gel doesn’t REALLY smell like roses. Well, it does, so if you don’t like the smell of roses I’d not advise you try this shower gel.

Sometimes this shower gel took me a bit of time to use the right amount of shower gel and in the right way to get enough lather for my entire body. I figured it out in the end though, but I have experienced having to re-fill my bath sponge with shower gel many times whilst using Rose Jam.

This is a Christmas exclusive, so if you really enjoy it you’re going to struggle to get your hands on it during any time of the year that isn’t Winter! Worse yet, it isn’t even guaranteed to come back next year – you just don’t know with Lush!

This shower gel is sort of a foody scent, so if that isn’t your sort of thing again, I’d not advise you try this shower gel.


Pros:

This tiny bottle of shower gel lasted me a really, really, really long time. Yes, I have been using other Lush products to clean my body with since buying this shower gel last Winter, but the tiny bottle still lasted me far longer than I expected it to when I was using it solely. I reckon this little bottle lasted me around… hmm… I’d say around 6 weeks altogether. That is a VERY long time for a bottle of shower gel this size to last. I’d estimate that it lasts between 30 and 40 washes. Extremely good value for money!

The smell is one that I personally love. It reminds me of this turkish delight me and my mother used to get in croissants whilst living in Bulgaria. Absolutely amazing! The smell was just perfect for me. I’d say if you’re not sure about this shower gel, it’s worth giving it a smell in store to see what you think about it.

The consistency… wow! So thick, it really does remind me of jam… or I guess it reminds me more of the consistency of strawberry sauce that you pour on ice cream or something. It is quite thick and sticky! It is really different and I really like it!

This shower gel is going to leave your bathroom smelling lovely for hours and hours and hours after taking a shower using it. I mean, who doesn’t like the smell of roses…???

The colour is very pretty. It is a dark, deep pink-red colour. Gorgeous!

This is a vegan handmade product from Lush that is cruelty free! Just that should be enough to make it worth giving it a go!

After working out how best to lather it, this shower gel lathered extremely well. I’ve been using  bath sponge to wash myself with recently, and I found that if I lightly spiral a thin string of the shower gel on either side of the sponge, that will be enough to wash my entire body with.

Even after the shower gel has seemingly run out, mixing any left over with some water will allow you to get 5 or so more showers out of this gel! Often, this water-shower gel solution actually lathers better than the shower gel does by itself!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, yes, I would recommend you try this shower gel. It is amazing! There are only really a couple of negatives I experienced while using it but on the whole, I’m so glad that I grabbed myself one last Winter!

I’m going to rate this shower gel a… hmm… this is tough. I’m going to have to go with 5/5*, because it really reminds me of the good times I had in Bulgaria. Roses are a very popular ingredient in Bulgaria – in both the food they make and the beauty products that they use, so I came across it often. Such a gorgeous smell!

Until next time!

Lush Butterbear Bath Bomb Review

Hey guys!

Today is an extremely exciting review – I have lost my Lush bath bomb virginity (thanks to my amazing partner!) to the adorable Butterbear! I hope you enjoy this review 🙂 Sorry that the photos aren’t the best quality!


Butterbear Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

SOME people might find that this bath bomb leaves their skin with a sort of greasy film on it, and they might not like that. If you don’t like feeling moisturised then well, Butterbear is definitely not the one for you!

The smell of Butterbear is very slightly artificial in scent – it has a sort of strong, perfumey tang to it. If you don’t like quite strong scents, this is not the one for you either!

Butterbear doesn’t really alter the colour of the bath water or create much of a show. If you want something super colourful and crazy, Butterbear will disappoint.


Pros:

Okay, so writing ANY cons for Butterbear was actually very difficult for me to do – I loved my little Butterbear! The first reason I think everyone should go out and buy themselves a Butterbear of their own is because he is just absolutely adorable! Like, the cutest Lush product I have ever used (by far!) Just the way this bath bomb looks is sure to put a smile on your face. So cute!

The smell is a very strong cocoa butter and vanilla scent. It smells slightly sickly but it is just so lovely. It also has this slighly perfumed aroma to it. I think he smells absolutely divine to be honest. Good enough to eat! Definitely one for those with a sweet tooth 😉

I received this as a gift, and it was the sweetest present! Even just grabbing one of these to cheer a friend up is a brilliant idea. These make fantastic gifts – trust me!

Butterbear is so moisturising – I felt incredibly soft after my long bath.

Butterbear softened the dead skin on my body, making it really easy to scrub off. I shower regularly and was surprised to see how much cleaner I was able to get just sponging my body over after soaking in a bath with Butterbear. If you really like to feel really clean, Butterbear is a must!

The bath was so nourishing that as well as my body, my hair and face also felt really moisturised after leaving the bath!

Once Butterbear has completely fizzed away, large droplets of melted butters were left behind on the surface of the bath water. It is nice to be able to see visually just how moisturising and luxurious your bath is!

Butterbear is vegan, all natural, handmade, is from the fantastic company Lush and is cruelty free.

I found Butterbear just so exciting to use, I really recommend giving him a go!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I LOVE BUTTERBEAR SO MUCH!!! I just want one in my Lush supplies at all times – he is so bloody cute!!! I love him!!!

So, I rate Butterbear a 5/5* rating, of course. Butterbear is simple and isn’t a miracle product from Lush, but for what a bath bomb is meant to do, Butterbear is brilliant. It’s the only bath bomb I’ve tried from Lush and is a real classic, I think this one will remain in my favouites for a long time!

GRAB YOURSELF AND YOUR FRIENDS A BUTTERBEAR – YOU WON’T REGRET IT! 😀
