It's Raining Men - Lush Honey Shower Gel
Before I get in to the main post, I just want to quickly say how happy and grateful I am for reaching 100 followers on Bloglovin'! I know it's not that many to some, but to me it's pretty amazing as I never thought that many people would really want to read what I have to say, as I just started this blog as a hobby and a way to take my mind off things. Thank you guys so much, and I have a special little post planned to celebrate, so keep your eyes peeled for that! Anyway, on to today's post...
I'm not a big fan of showers - I take them, of course, but I much prefer baths however showers are often necessary as they're much quicker (usually... I'm terrible at speedy showers though) and easier first thing in the morning. Because showers really aren't one of my favourite things, I like to use really lovely shower gels to make them more enjoyable; enter Lush's It's Raining Men!
It's no secret that I ab-so-LUTE-ly love Lush (as I'm sure everyone does!) but for some reason, until fairly recently, I'd only ever gone for their bath products - as where I live at uni only has a shower, I thought it was about time I branched out a bit and gave their shower gels a try!
It's Raining Men is a sweet, honey scented gel and which smells just delicious! It's not edible though, as much as it even looks like real honey haha. It's not overly sweet or sickly like some honey scents can be, and manages to be somewhat fresh at the same time - probably due the sweet wild orange and bergamot oils it is infused with, to help 'add brightness and lift the mood'.
I've found that It's Raining Men lathers up really well, especially when using a shower puff and with one of them a little really does go a long way. The little 100g bottle I owned lasted me nearly three months, which I think is really good. I haven't noticed that the scent really lingers on the skin after the shower, which for me is a shame, but it makes the actual shower a much more pleasant experience nonetheless.
The only downside to this shower gel is, as with all of Lush's shower gels, the price. I had the smallest sized bottle and it cost £4.50. The 'regular' size of 250g is fairly pricey at £8.95, and the larger sized bottle is even more. For comparison, if you want to have a slightly more indulgent shower gel than your usual high street/drugstore offering, The Body Shop's 250ml shower gels are £4. However, as Lush's shower gels are so lovely, and It's Raining Men smells so amazing, I can definitely see myself purchasing it again despite it being a bit pricey - I adore the scent so much I want it back in my life soon!
Have you tried any of Lush's shower gels? Which one is your favourite?
