Lush Refresher Shower Jelly Review

Refresher Shower Jelly (100g):

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

Toward the end of its days, this shower jelly was extremely difficult to lather up. This was only really for the final time or two that I used the jelly, but I was really surprised with how little lather was coming from the jelly at this point.

Shower jellies are SUPER difficult to use up before their use by date – or at least Refresher was! I don’t fully remember when I received my Refresher jelly – I believe it was some time during the first week or two of January 2016. Its use by date was 15/02/17. I only managed to use this guy up yesterday – 17/05/17! It’s difficult to use up because you generally need such a small amount of product to wash your entire body with. If you aren’t cool with using products past their use-by date, maybe this jelly isn’t for you!

Refresher is a straight up lemon scented product. If you aren’t into citrus scents then you’re not going to like the smell of Refresher.


Pros:

I think Refresher Shower Jelly smells absolutely divine. It smells just like lemon sherbet sweets! It really does smell incredible!

This shower jelly lasts a really long time. You definitely get value for money when it comes to this product!

The appearance of Refresher is gorgeous! It is a bright, deep yellow colour, and is full of yellow lustre!

I found this Shower Jelly to be really moisturising! I think it is definitely more moisturising than some of Lush’s other body wash products. If you have dry skin or just love a moisturising body wash, give Refresher a try!

Everything about this shower jelly is super positive and uplifting. I personally received Refresher from my partner, as part of a gift set called ‘Happiness’. The occasion was very cheerful and uplifting in itself, and using a bright yellow,  lustre filled, lemon scented jelly type product, straight out of the fridge, called ‘Refresher’, first thing in the morning just really added to the entire feel of the product. It is just… Such a happy product! It’s like Lush injected some positive vibes into this jelly.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really enjoyed this product – a lot! Many people find shower jellies difficult to use, but I never had this problem at all. I just would take the jelly out of its pot, rub it onto a wet shower pouf and voila. Easy!

I think Refresher is such a happy jelly! It would be quite a difficult product to not love in my opinion.

Overall, I’m going to rate Refresher a 5/5* rating, but only just! I’m actually not the BIGGEST fan of lemon scents – I don’t dislike them at all, but I can find them to be a bit “much” sometimes. I couldn’t really give Refresher any lower than 5 stars though – it really is an amazing product, and is strangely underrated!

Lush Baked Alaska Soap Review

I bought this soap in the boxing day sale in 2015, and have only just used it up! Here is my review for this soap 🙂

Baked Alaska Soap:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap is really cleansing, and may even begin to dry out your hands after continuous use.

I didn’t find this soap super exciting to be honest. It is a simple, green coloured, lemon scented soap.

This is a Christmas exclusive item so if you find that you like it, you’re going to have a lot of trouble obtaining it at other times of the year!

Knowing Lush, there isn’t even any guarantee whatsoever that this soap will return next Christmas season so again, if you like it then you’re going to have a tough time finding a good supply!

This soap isn’t really well suited for Winter – in fact, I found it nicest to use in the Summer.


Pros:

This soap smells really good. It smells incredibly cirtrusy! It smells so, so lemony and citrusy and lovely! A FANTASTIC one for the Summer – trust me!

This soap is super cleansing and refreshing, and the scent really suits the Summer time (as I just said..) If you can manage to save this one for the Summer then you’re going to enjoy this soap that much more!

My partner loved this soap. He would smell it constantly, so it’s a winner for both men and women.

This soap is very colourful and is more fun to look at than the traditional white bathroom soap. Again, it looks really Summery!

Baked Alaska lathers up incredibly well – likely the best lathering soap I have used thus far!

It has a creamy layer on the top, which makes for a creamier lather if you make sure to rub this side of the soap on your hands.

This soap lasts forever! It has lasted me a year – a YEAR! And that is with many, many uses.

I found that Lush soaps work best as hand soaps and to be kept by the sink. This one makes for a lovely hand soap 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this would be a really nice soap to use exclusively for the Summer, when your hands get all sticky and you just want to freshen up with a lovely Summery scent. Otherwise, I think this soap would be far too drying and that the scent wouldn’t really go too well with the time of the year.

My partner has said that he thinks the smell was really lovely and limey, but he found the soap to be quite drying and that the lather was difficult to product and wasn’t very moisturising.

Overall, I’m going to give this soap a 4/5* rating. This is because I think it would be an amazing soap to use in the Summer, but not so great at other times of the year!
