Plum Rain Shower Jelly





Wibble, wobble, wobble, wobble, jelly on a plate...

I'll be honest and say that I wasn't overly excited about the prospect of this particular shower jelly coming out, if only because the shower gel version is available all year round online and in some stores. Whilst probably the best 'recent' shower gel that Lush have ever released, it doesn't mean that I need a solidified, wobbly version of the same thing again. However, there is always something magic about a new Lush shower jelly, and I couldn't help but pick one up after the recent Lush Community release.

What is impressive about Plum Rain Shower Jelly is that it replicates the fragrance of the original shower gel so well; and in fact I found that the scent of this was perhaps even a little better than the gel, making it even more desirable than I originally thought I would ever find it.

What made the shower gel so scrumptious was the fact that the key ingredient featured was umeboshi, which is a Japanese salt plum that has both a sweet, sour and salty taste to it. In the liquid gel format, the inclusion of this gave the shower gel a smell that sat somewhere between stewed plums and fresh apricots. Delicious to say the least.

In the shower jelly however, this component doesn't appear to be featured, and instead there is the combined force of plum oil, plum balsamic vinegar and fresh plum juice, all of which give this limited edition a scent that will have you salivating before you even enter the shower. I think it may be the plum balsamic vinegar element that makes the scent of this even sweeter and more fruity than the shower gel, and for that I am very grateful.

Alongside these fruity notes, the petigrain and osmanthus oils ground the fragrance with a fresh, green-like twist that sits just slightly below the juiciness of the plum. While there are times when I wish these elements weren't there, and that I could just appreciate the mouthwatering fruitiness by itself, these other components help to ground the smells together and give the shower jelly a depth that it would not have otherwise been able to offer.

When you begin to use Plum Rain Shower Jelly in the shower, you'll discover that it lathers up really well - creating light, frothy and very fragrant suds to massage across the skin. Although it can be a little fiddly, I found that either blending it up with a little water to create a shower gel; or cutting it up into smaller pieces to use individually, worked far better than trying to hold the whole thing in the shower at once. And when I say you need a minuscule amount, I mean that I was taking pieces that were the size of raisins in the shower and being able to wash my entire body from the foam created - meaning I've been using this beauty for the last three weeks and I have barely made a dent in the tub at all.

I would honestly choose this over the shower gel, if I had a choice, which is now the second time I have said this regarding the company's recent shower jelly release. Either my tastebuds are changing or Lush are getting better at replicating the fragrances in shower jelly format, and making their products just overly better.
