Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today I would talk to you all about the Ginger Shower Gel from the Lush Mothers Day 2020 Range.
This year, Lush's Mothers Day range was inspired by the Spice Girls. This included a delicate Baby's Bum Cleanser, a roaring yet spicy Bath Bomb inspired by Scary Spice, a luxurious Posh Shampoo Bar, a sporty little number in the form of Knock Out Bubble Bar and Ginger Shower Gel.
List Od ingredients:
Sodium Cocoamphoacetate Sodium Laureth Sulfate Glycerine Fresh Ginger Root Decoction Lauryl Betaine Mimosa Absolute Bergamot Oil Ginger Oil Sicilian Red Mandarin Oil Geranium Oil Sandalwood Oil Xanthan Gum Carrageenan Extract Titanium Dioxide Propylene Glycol Synthetic Fluorphlogopite Tin Oxide Silica Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone *Benzyl Benzoate Citronellol *Eugenol *Limonene *Linalool Perfume Colour 16035 Colour 45410:2 Colour 14700 Colour 77491
The first thing, that I thought that I would talk about is the texture of the gel. The gel is slightly different compared to most shower gels that you have tried before. It's thicker than most gels. When you use it on yourself, it has a tendency to be more like an oil rather than a thick lathering Shower Gel. I think that this is due to the Xantham Gum that is in the base of this shower gel. At first, I kind of hated it as I'm used to lather based gels, but I have adapted to loving Due to the texture, it does mean that I have a tendency on using more than I think that I need when I am using the Gel. it. If you have tried any of the Lush Shower Gels within 2020, then you will know exactly what I mean.
Did you know that the Ginger fragrance from Lush, was one of their first fragrances that Lush released? The scent of this Gel can be sparated into two parts. Wood, Ginger and Mimosa. This Shower Gel is also a Fine Fragranced Shower Gel, which I think means that the fragrance that is sold within solid, 30ml and 100ml has been directly turned into a Shower Gel and not diluted. I could be wrong though...
When you smell this directly from the bottle. you get a sort of an almagation of Ginger, Wood and Florals. When you apply this to your body, I got a hit of deep sort of smoky wood first from the Sandalwood and Bergamot. Then the Ginger Root and Ginger Oil then comes through which envelop you in a spicy and warming aroma. After the Ginger hits you, its balanced out straight after with Mimosa, Red Mandarin and Geranium which ends your shower journey with a slightly spicy, but mainly floral note. If you like the Ginger perfume or anything with a spicy yet slightly floral based then you will love this!
Would I buy it again? Yes. I absolutely love this scent. It's one of those that can be used for a mixture of seasons and moods. Versality is always good when it comes to scents. The scent can be used definitely for Spring, Autumn and pretty much Winter, especially from the spice and floral notes in this product.
