First of LUSH sells very expensive products, but I find that their stuff can be a hit or miss. It's pretty pricey here in Canada - about $9.99 for the smallest 100ml bottle.
The happy hippy gel works well enough. Lathers and rinses well. It dries out you skin just a little, but that ok. I'm not really a big fan of the scent... It kinda reminds me of a fruit salad/ fruit scented cleaning product. I prefer the scent of the flying fox shower gel over this. I wouldn't repurchase... I'm giving my happy hippy bottle away.

I love the clean citrus scent, it smells like fresh grapefruit and really wakes me up in the morning. Love.

I love the smell of this product so much that I am currently on my second bottle.
First Impression: Citrusy grapefruit smell - great for waking up in the morning, calming for a day of exhaustion at work.
Application: A little goes on long way.
I don't have the habit of slapping body lotion on my body, so thankfully this product did not dry my skin out.
Except for being too pricey, I think this shower gel is quite awesome.

I think this is my favorite shower gel of all time. It has a pure and fresh grapefruit scent with just the right amount of sweetness to make it yummy but still brisk. It has a thick gel-like texture that lathers up great, so I think a bottle will last a pretty good while. This is a really simple and great product - if you like grapefruit, you can't really go wrong with this one. However, if you have very dry skin, I'd suggest you try the honey-based shower gels instead, since citruses can obviously be a bit drying in daily use. For me, this has not been too drying.

Smells like a citrus fruit salad. Great for a morning wake up and lathers very well. Externally drying so a lotion is a must after using it.

This has been my staple body wash for a few years now. PROS: gentle on my sensitive skin, fresh scent that doesn't stick to my skin, good lather, free of all the "junk" that goes into a lot of body wash products. CONS: is great consistency (not too thick or thin) when the bottle is full, but about half way down it gets very thick (always a great lather tho), bottles aren't made to be reused as the plastic breaks down (I have little bottles in my shower and keep a large bottle of this for refills), somewhat expensive (but the quality is good), scent doesn't stick to my skin after a shower (this can be a pro or con depending on your personal preference). If you like a clean fresh scent that helps wake you up in the morning but is not overpowering, definitely give this a try.

Smells very citrusy and grapefruity.
It's a nice scent, but not my favorite.
Will not repurchase again because the smell does not linger whatsoever.

Lush's Happy Hippy is a grapefruit scented shower gel. Lush says that this body wash, which is one of their best sellers, is the "perfect way to start the day. This shower get is bursting with fresh, juicy, organic pink grapefruit to cleanse away grime, refresh your skin, and make you feel brighter all over, plush it's full of zippy citrus oil, grapefruit, and bergamot oil to work on tired minds with a double dose of Vitamin C". I was given a free sample of this shower gel at the Lush in Macy's in Downtown Pittsburgh. This shower gel retails for between $9.95-$28.95 and is available in three sizes; 3.3fl oz, 8.4fl oz, and 16.9fl oz. Happy Hippy is one of many, many vegan products offered by Lush. Lush is, of course, a cruelty free brand. This shower gel was made in Canada.
My little sample came in a small, black plastic jar with a screw on cap. The name of the product is hand written on the lid, but is starting to smear off. The full size product comes in a standard Lush Shower Gel bottle, which are clear and rounded with a black label. The name and product info and ingredients are written on the label in white lettering. I'm pretty sure Lush's shower gel bottles are not included in the store's recyclable program, but I know they're definitely recyclable.
Happy Hippy is a light, yellow, slightly cloudy looking shower gel. The consistency of this shower gel is quite thick, it barely moves around in the sample jar. Actually, its pretty hard to get out of the jar. I feel like I need to use quite a bit each time I use this shower gel. My sample jar was filled to the brim when I got it, and now after just two baths, it's almost gone. Happy Hippy barely lathers at all, I feel like it just kinda goes away when it comes in contact with my wet pouf. Oh before I forget, I should mention that this shower gel contains a very small amount of glitter. It's a shame that Happy Hippy fails to foam up, because it feels nice nice on my skin, cooling and little tingly, great for a shower in the morning just like Lush says (too bad, I'm a night bather). The formula on this shower gel is only ok, which is disappointing considering the crazy high price.
Happy Hippy has a fresh, pleasant, but not very unique grapefruit scent. The scent is certainly unisex, I could share it with my boyfriend, but there isn't very much to go around. The scent seem very strong straight out of the jar/bottle, but it dissipates very quickly and barely transfers onto the skin at all. Once again, the citrus-y scent is great for use in the morning.
I find Happy Hippy Shower Gel really lackluster. When I say that Lush is overpriced and overrated, its because of products like this one. It barely lathers, I need to use loads of it, and the scent is misleading in the bottle. The scent is nice, but very generic. I wouldn't buy any size bottle of Happy Hippy, it really isn't worth the high price. I don't recommend Happy Happy, if you're looking for a citrus body wash from Lush, I'd choose Whoosh Shower Jelly, which I'm still not crazy about, but its a better value and way more functional and fragrant than Happy Hippy.
