Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly Review

Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly

While in Lush Oxford Street I assumed that Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly was perhaps a sneak peek of a future Winter/Christmas collection? Nope it is an all year round showering product that is exclusive to the new store along with over 200 other products. If you happen to live in London or the surrounding area I can not urge you enough to plan a visit - it is three stores of bathing heaven.

Once you wrap your head around the fact that Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly not being a seasonal product the next thing you notice along with the texture is the wonderful scent. A truly sensuous aroma that has somewhat aromatherapy benefits, a blend of Pine and Cyprus Leaf notes come together that to mimic the effect of a sauna. Such scents also encourage the blood to flow and increase circulation, all the while stimulating the capillary beds. I also find that it de-congests and clears the airways - great if like myself you are suffering from hayfever or even a Summer cold. The fragrance itself is very alpine , outdoors-y and a little masculine - fresh, invigorating and renewing, it is one that both sexes can truly enjoy. If you don't have regular access to a sauna (and who does?), this is the next best thing.

Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly is actually recommend for use after a visit to the gym or any form of exercise for that matter as it can calm and soothe tired, achy muscles. For extra relief I recommend popping it into the freezer - it won't physically freeze but will remain icy cold for a good few hours. Trust me it is quite the treat when combined with tired limbs and a warm shower.

You can use any Lush Shower Jelly in a whole manner of ways, you can freeze it as I mentioned above, chill it the fridge for a quick cold blast or use it straight from the tub. The one factor that never changes is that they are really slippery, so do make sure you have a tight grip or you will be chasing it around in the shower which is more frustrating than amusing. I find the Shower Jellies to cleanse really well but they do not foam quite as much as a typical shower gel but let's face it they are oodles more fun!

Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly from £5.25 exclusive to Lush Oxford Street.

  3. This sounds lovely, especially the scent. I could definitely use this right now during allergy season- I'm all stuffed up and can't breathe out of my nose. I am now a mouth breather.

  11. The exclusive products to Oxford Street are making me so jealous (and annoying me a little). I would love to try out this shower jelly especially after a workout but alas, I live in Scotland and have no intention of going to London for a long time. I'll have to live vicariously through everyone else.

  14. Oh this sounds (and looks) amazing! I've just been introduced to shower jellies and I really like them. I'm based quite far out of London (although I'm a lot closer than you and others are!) but I'm hoping to be able to make a trip some time soon as I have to at least see this magical new store and hopefully pick up one or two products x
