Lush | Shiny Happy People

Lush | Shiny Happy People gift set
I received this Shiny Happy People gift set (£16.50) a few months back as a gift from a friend and really wanted to share my thoughts with you guys. The set contains 3 products, which are all shower friendly (and great for those who don't have a bath like myself).

 Layer Cake Soap (£3.50/100g) - In its bar form this is probably one of my favourite scents from Lush as it isn't too overpowering. While it's meant to be quite a fruity scent this actually reminds me of wine gums and because of this expected to fall head over heels for this product. So, its  a shame that this scent doesn't remain while in use. While it does a good job and leaving me squeaky clean, the soap is little drying and with a lack of scent it leaves behind, it essentially does the same job as a supermarket soap.. albeit a lot prettier.

Refresher Shower Jelly (£4.25/100g) - This product is just so much fun! I love the idea of a shower jelly and think it has a great price point when you consider how unique it is! I love how it wiggles, which you can see for yourself if you click the link to the lush website (although personally I'd recommend checking these out in store as they're always on display and fun to play with!). Unlike Layer Cake this has a really strong zesty scent and is perfect for waking you up in the morning. It lathers up nicely and truly is a joy to use! So much so that I cant wait to try another scent!

Beautiful Shower Gel (£4.95/100g) - I really like Lush Shower Gels although personally find them a little too expensive for everyday use. However I really enjoyed this one! The scent just made it feel so much more 'grown up' than the other products, as there's definitely more of a musk to it. Out of the three products from the box this is the one that lathers up he most, and like the shower jelly it leaves a lovely scent behind.

Overall, I was really happy that I was given this gift box, While the soap was an utter let down I truly loved the other products and have found a firm favourite with the shower jelly!

What are your Lush favourites?


  1. I still haven't tried shower jelly and I think I will pass that, because I am so clumsy and I know I'd drop it all the time ha ha :) I love the squeaky clean feeling, however, it is shame that it is drying. Snow fairy is one of my favourite product, it smells divine!
