Beauty product review – Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly
Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to have a shower gel in a jelly form? Well, Sweetie Pie shower jelly from Lush is just that – a fruity shower gel in a jelly form. Does it jiggle and wobble? Yes, yes it does and it’s really squishy too. Here’s the description of Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly:
Our sweetest shower jelly is also our best-seller! Between the fruity fragrance, the iridescent glitter that leaves a sparkle on your skin, and the seaweed base that leaves your skin softened and refreshed, it’s irresistible. And while we know our blackcurrant and sour cherry wobbler smells good enough to eat, we recommend you curb your cravings and hop in the shower and wash with Sweetie Pie instead. Smooth it all over your body (and your hair too!) for a sweet yet sophisticated cleansing experience.
So here’s the review of Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly:
Product / Quality:
Once you get the Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly you won’t be able to stop looking at it and stop playing with it. It’s deep purple color is mesmerizing and the tiny blue and silver sparkles make it even more fun. It’s actually really interesting, it’s texture is like a soft and squishy jelly but it doesn’t stick to your hands. It’s really fun to use and it’s also great for kids. It’s truly fun in a pot.
The quality of Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly is really good. You can just take it out of the pot and rub it onto your skin until it lathers or you can just pinch a chunk of the jelly and rub it onto a bath sponge or loofah. If you use it with loofah or bath sponge you’ll get a really nice and fluffy foam. Many people also use Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly as a shampoo or they crumble it under a running water like a bubble bath bar so you can try using it like this too.
Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly has a really fruity and sweet smell. You can definitely tell that there’s cherry in there and it’s also slightly sweet probably because of the coconut. But the thing that has the most dominant scent is the blackcurrant. It smells really blackcurrant fruity, really fresh and uplifting and slightly sweet, all mixed in a small pot.
Because it has such deep fruity smell, Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly really has a scent that most Lush lovers will like. The fruity scent also will linger on your skin for couple of hours, so you can enjoy the fragrance almost the whole day.
Lush Sweetie Pie shower jelly isn’t the cheapest thing out there, but it isn’t that much expensive either. It comes in two pot sizes so you can buy the smaller pot first and see if you like it before buying the large pot. It’s priced $6.95 for 3.5 oz sized pot and $11.95 for 8.5 oz sized pot (£3.50 for 100 g and £6.95 for 240 g). But because it has a unique consistency it really lasts long and you’ll probably use it at least for a month. So it’s a good thing to buy when you want to treat yourself with something fun and interesting.
