The smell of this shower smoothie alone would make me shell out the 34.95 USD. I agree the price is outrageous, but one whiff, that is seriously all it took and I was sold. I love the smell of rose so this was a no brainer for me, but it is an amazing product for more than just the smell.
I spread a large amount all over my body before I hop into the shower and then I lather it up a bit before I exfoliate (I use Rub Rub Rub currently but once I run out of that pot I will purchase something else). And, no joke, I leave the shower with incredibly soft skin. Truthfully, it would be better if the smell lasted longer than just the couple minutes before I rinse it off, but even when I don't use it under a scrub there is no smell, it's very disappointing.
Another thing, if you are expecting it to LATHER, like really lather, you're going to be thoroughly disappointed. It completely soaks into my skin (and I have never had a problem with it being messy) before I jump in the shower, and once I start scrubbing, it makes enough of a milky kind of lotion for me to see that its still there before I cover it up.
Sometimes I use it as a shaving cream, and it works wonderful for that too.
I got a tub of this in a gift set I got for my birthday. I put off using it for a long time (using the olive branch shower gel instead) due to not liking the smell of this at all. However, I'm in love with the thick, creamy texture of this. It makes my skin feel so soft.
I may just look past the smell and repurchase this when it's done.
I got a sample of this and thought i'll love it since there is nothing but rave reviews. But when i open the to smell it, i was like, omg what is that smell!!! I couldn't explain how it smell like except i don't like it. Its very creamy and thick and i have a hard time spreading it on my skin. Bits would fall off my skin and get wasted. It is moisturizing but would not clean my back well because that area is quite oily. But for dry skin this would be good.
Not way i'm buying this.
I love the scent cz i love rose scent, also it leaves my skin smelling amazing and very soft, the packaging is kinda inconvenient if you pretend to use it everyday as it takes time to open it, scoop it, closing the jar without dropping what you just scooped, and then applying it, so I just use it sometimes when i have time and wanna pamper myself or before bed with my boyfriend so he can see how fabulous i smell, also it doestn lather too much and i like lather so i combine it with aveno body gel the one with no fragrance and its amazing! rich lather and great scent, like i said it takes me time so this has made the jar last along time which is great cz its not cheap at all
This product is the most effective when combined with LUSH's Ros Argan conditioner.
Really upset with this product that I was SURE I going to fall in love with. Rose is my favorite scent and I've heard nothing but good things about this wash. Maybe I just got a bad batch, but this scent was identical to citronella bug spray. It does leave my skin really soft and the scent doesn't last long so I suppose that's alright, but for the price I would expect a better scent.
Lovely scented bath smoothie/soap/moisturizer. The scent does stay on you so make sure you like it before you buy. It really does moisturize compared to other body washes/soaps I've used. I bought it because my skin gets so dry in the winter, this is really helping. It is a bit of a pain to use. I put some of it in a Lush sample jar (the tiny black jars for lip products) and apply it from there so I do not have to try and maneuver with the larger tub. The small jar also keeps me from using too much product and wasting it, I can get about 3-4 used from the tiny jar, a little goes a long way with this product and it needs to because it's really expensive. Would repurchase.
I adore this body wash/soap/whatever it is. For me, the smell alone is worth shelling out the ridiculous price for the tub. It leaves my skin very clean and slightly moisturized, I still need lotion afterward. I don't use a lot of it, so it lasts a while. It makes my whole bathroom smell delicious.
The last time I visited the Lush store, the SA used this with the Glorious Mud to make as scrub, so now I use that as a hand or body scrub and it works amazingly well. I use more of the Turkish Delight to get a scrub texture but it's worth it.
I love this product and will absolutely keep buying it, it's such a treat.
Luxury in a tub my friends, luxury in a tub.
I didn't buy this at first because (1) it's pricey and (2) in the store it smells insanely rosey. But having loved the idea of shower smoothies, I splashed out. This smells a LOT better at home, all lathered up, compared to how it smelled in store, in the little concentrated space of the tub. It just smells like expensive roses. I used it throughout winter as it is somewhat moisturising (though very dry skin might require a little bit more moisture than this gives).
I can see what people mean about flakes/chunks. Towards the bottom of my tub, there was one little hard cluster. I can only suggest asking to have a peak inside while in the store to make sure there aren't any "lighter" sections which is what this looked like. Once I worked it through my hands a bit they weren't a problem, and 95% of the tub was fine, but I did find weird "hard" parts at the end of using it.
I just loved the smell and feel and ease of use of this product, I will buy it again, though probably not any time soon as it's not a very summery fragrance or process!
If you like rose scents, you HAVE to check this out. I read the reviews before using it a second time, which meant I covered myself with it and jumped in the shower, executing various poses to wash one body part while letting the others marinate in this moussy, slightly thick heavenly scented body wash. I can't decide if that's worse than holding it out of the shower stream to keep water from getting in the product with one hand while scrubbing away with the other. The scent does linger, and it does moisturize but it sure is wonky. Maybe if you have a tub/shower combo, it would be easier for you. I am going to also try the perfume method.
UPDATE: Smash a bit into a shower poof, this way no contortionist acts are needed to use.
