I bought a small bottle of Lush “Honey I Washed the Kids” shower gel, as I wasn’t too sure how sweet the scent was going to be, and after the sickly sweet scent experience of Lush’s Snow Fairy Shower Gel, I was erring on the side of caution, as Snow Fairy Shower Gel was overpoweringly sweet (think cotton candy) and I couldn’t wait to finish the bottle.
“When your skin is crying out for some TLC, Honey I Washed The Kids will come to the rescue.” This shower gel is a beautiful golden toffee colour, and contains honey, rosehip oil, bergamot and sweet wild orange oils. Combined, these create a wonderfully scented shower gel that not only lathers up luxuriously, but also has natural antiseptic properties, which help to soothe, nurture and moisturise the skin.
A little goes a long way, so only a little of the gel is needed on a shower pouf, as it lathers up really well and the small bottle lasted quite a long time. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using this shower gel as a shampoo, it’ll give you sweetly honey-scented locks. The scent is sweet without being too sickly; it smells a little like caramelized honey, and the bergamot and sweet wild orange oil definitely seem to help cut the sweet scent a little.
I have very oily hair, and I found that using this on its own as a shampoo didn’t really provide any lasting oil control, but if I mixed a little of this body wash with my ordinary shampoo, I ended up with the best of both; clean hair that smelled divine, too!
I’d definitely recommend Lush Honey I Washed the Kids shower gel to those who like sweet scented bath and body products, and I’ll definitely be purchasing more of it in the future.
