Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly - Review

Friday, August 24, 2012


So now I've had my dalliance with Lush Shower Gel and although it was a thoroughly enjoyable affair
of grapefruit goodness I knew deep down it would only be a temporary fling and the next time 
I frequented a Lust Store a wibbly wobbley shower gel would be mine once again!


"If a bar of soap and a bottle of shower gel had a steamy affair, this would be the resulting jelly baby
Cherries, coconut, jelly and sparkles – this is a party in a pot. 
Makes every day feel like it’s your birthday. 
This is a sweet, sweet little cutie-pie. We start this jelly by making an infusion with cherries and coconut, we then add carrageen seaweed and boil it up until it turns all jelly and wobbly on us. 
Then we have to get it into the mould quickly, before it sets in the pan !"


Lush Shower Gel's are probably one of the oddest yet most fun bath/shower products on the market,
much like the name suggests it is very much a jelly like substance that foams and cleanses
with contact of water much like a soap or shower gel would.
Lush state that you can chill it, freeze it or use it at room temperature - I only ever use it at room
temperature the idea of washing myself with a chilly cleansing block is less than appealing to me haha!


At first I found it quite tricky to use and would often drop the Jelly in the shower and spend
the next half an hour chasing this wet and slippery chunk of substance around the bathroom!
To make things easier I now just pull a small size piece off the product and use it for one shower
and rinse away the remains, a little wasteful yes but it seems to work best this way for me.


Lush Sweetie Pie is a difficult scent to pin point, the description states that it is a blend of cherry and coconut
so you do strain your nose desperate to detect such notes only to come to the conclusion it smells
more akin to blackcurrant than anything else and if we are going to get really specific - black wine gums!
I swear it smells exactly like black wine gums...me and my nose eh ;)


Yes the Shower Jelly does have glitter flecked scattered within but they do not amount to anything,
I have used this product countless times and never once have I looked glittery.
The Jelly does a great job of cleansing and does so in a gentle way making it great for all skin types
including those who have sensitive skin.

Do you like your Jelly on a plate or in the shower?

  1. This is one of my favourite shower products ever, such an amazing scent and the lather is so soft (: I cut my jelly into use-size pieces and 'decant' it into a Tupperware, which isn't glam, but saves me from wasting product or chasing it around my bathroom! xx

  10. I love the look of these but have never bought one because I can imagine myself dropping it and chasing it round the shower! Does it really foam up like a normal shower gel?

  11. I love the look of that stuff, looks a bit weird to use though but I keep picking it up in Lush then putting it back down, think I might go for it since you have managed to use it successfully haha xx

  13. I'm not sure how I feel about the shower jellies, I tried one out a few years ago because they looked really fun, but I kept dropping it, even if I only took a small piece (clumsy!) :(... I might give them another go though, as they still look fun and I know they smell amazing aha!

  14. These are great! The trick to not chasing them around the shower is to squish a small piece into a loafer to wash yourself, works a treat.

  15. After trying a tub of LUSH's jelly, I feel it's rather gimicky and for those who really hate showering and need it to be extra fun!

    Wish it'd be more like food jelly, where it'd break down in water to give a nice slippery handful of soapy, yummy smelling goodness.
