This was the first thing I ever had from lush; why can't we eat it?!
Really, it's the scent, and the glitter, that is the selling point as it isn't the most practical of items. It was a pain in the butt to dig a chunk out with my nails in the shower, only for the gelatinous mass to slide down my arm and escape with the water. Bizarrely it actually lasts ages, despite losing so much of it to its watery death. Don't know if you're supposed to rub it in your hair too, but I did, and it even lathered once I manage to squish the jelly enough.
I've bought it a couple of times, and I probably will again, but I like to leave long periods between each occasion so I can forget how frustrated I get. I don't recommend this product for the busy mum on the go; it will just prolong your time in the shower, which no doubt you didn't want, and will make you angry when you think of all the other things you want to be doing. If, however, you want a nice relaxing bath, give it a chance; you'll smell beautiful for it.

✨First of all the blackcurrent scent is gorgeous! I totally fell for Lush Shower Jelly’s after walking into the shop and being surrounded by plates of jelly which I thought was a great, fun idea! Unfortunately, the fun ended when using in the shower! The product is really hard to pull apart to get the right amount to wash with. It also does not lather very well and just sort of slips and slides over your body and down the plug hole! I think the concept is really quirky and fun, but it’s just not practical for everyday use and is really just a bit of a gimmick.

Most of the shower jellies smell nice but leave your skin with a sticky unpleasant residue on it. This does not lather well and constantly slips out of your hands when you are trying to wash yourself with it.

Although I didnt use this product myself, I brought the purple blackcurrant one for my sister as a birthday present and she loved it! The smell makes the room you use it in smell lovely as well as your skin. My sister said how cleansed and revived her skin felt after using the jelly and it moisturised her skin as well. The product is quite expensive but great as a present!

This is exactly like jelly but if your looking for something to actually use then this is not it. Me and my friend started messing around with it in lush and decided to buy one but once I tried to use it the whole thing flopped and little bits came off so now I'm just stuck with a little tub of a jelly-like blob! I advise you don't try it because it basically just a gimmick :)

I find shower jelly very difficult to handle -.- I chopped it up to little squares in the hope of easier use in shower but it just keeps slipping out of my hand and doesn't foam very much. I would only buy it again because I like the concept of it, smells very nice and different to typical shower stuff like soap and shower gels.

I brought this for my Nan, she can't use a bath and can only shower so i thought this would be really good. She told me it was hard to use and she dropped most of it on the shower floor. Nice smell but wasted most of it so i wont buy this for her or myself again.

I really hated this! The smell is divine but this is just annoying to use, I mean trying to clean yourself with jelly is not the easiest thing in the world, its slides all over the place and then just disappears down the plug holes. A waste of money
