It has been years since I last had a shower jelly from Lush. It’s such an odd concept to get your head around when you first use them – a body wash that is in the form of jelly, like the wibble wobble kind. I had originally wanted to get Santa’s Belly but when I smelled it in store it just didn’t appeal to me, so instead I picked up Needles and Pines.
To use it you could just take the entire thing out of it’s tub and rub it over your skin but I find it doesn’t really lather up all that great when used that way. I prefer to take a shower puff (shower lily, loofah, whatever you like to call them), break off a small piece of the shower jelly and scrunch it into the wet puff. When I use it this way it lathers up 10 times better, and the puff acts as a manual exfoliator, leaving you squeaky clean and smooth.
Needles and Pines is a very accurate name for this product in my opinion. It has a fresh, pine tree smell, like fresh snow in the woods, and is definitely what I would call a unisex scent. Sometimes scents intended to be unisex can be just a touch too masculine, but this one is perfect and one that could easily be used year round.
Available from Lush for £3.75 (100ml)
