You may remember that I mentioned a “Lush” Haul, well this is yet another product review! So far I have mentioned both the “Sparkler” and “Northern Lights“, both of which were for Bonfire Night. This particular Shower Gel however, covers the whole winter period. “Hot Toddy” is a Shower Gel, much like all the other Lush shower gels. It comes in 100g, 250g and 500g. As always I bought the 100g, as even that costs £3.95, a price I would never justify if I was shopping in Tesco! However, sold as always on a Limited Edition shower gel, I had to at least give it a try!
Hot Toddy is a beautiful red colour, with little flecks of gold that make it look like its shimmering. The smell is quite strong but not in a bad way – a total memory of Christmas Markets, spiced candles, just pure Christmas really.
Lush sells the product as:
With all the spice of a Christmas market, this deep red shimmering shower gel is sure to blow away the bah humbugs. Laced with softening seaweed, fresh ginger, cinnamon leaf oil and cleansing lemon oil, this will warm up even the chilliest of days and bring a sparkle to your shower.
I could definitely get the cinnamon but otherwise the rest of the scents are subtle. I actually didn’t fully expect to like this shower gel but I was pleasantly surprised! Having used it twice now, I can honestly say I like it. I actually hope that this becomes a Limited Edition a bit like Snow Fairy, making a reappearance every Christmas. I do have a cold so I can’t say for sure, but sadly I didn’t smell it on my skin afterwards. I’m hoping that is just my cold though, as one thing I’ve always loved about Lush shower gel is that you catch a whiff every now and again after the bath or shower!
Still to come, So White Shower Gel, Butterbear Bath Bomb and Wizard Bubble Bar! I have more, but these are the ones I’ve tried and tested – coming to a blog post near you (soon!).
