A few days ago, I posted about one of the new shower gels I recently purchased from Lush. I also mentioned that I picked up another one – So White. Today I’m going to tell you all about this new shower gel, what I think and how it smells.
You might think that the name “So White” sounds familiar. That is because for many years Lush has made a bath bomb called So White. Deliberately sounding like “Snow White”, So White is an fruity smelling bath bomb and the new shower gel So White, is very similar!
Lush describes this product as:
A crisp apple shower gel to leave you feeling the fairest of them all. This creamy, shimmering wash is made with cleansing fresh apple and cyder vinegar as well as soothing rose water to leave you feeling fresh and soft. This contains organic rose absolute and bergamot essential oil to help clear the mind and leave you feeling as pure as the driven snow.
While the bath bomb has an orange/citrus smell, the shower gel is apple. This to me makes far more sense, given the actual name of the shower gel.
The consistency of So White shower gel is a little strange. I want to liken it to “off milk” but at the same time I don’t want to put you off. For the most part, the shower gel feels normal, however I don’t know if you can see from the picture, but it has sort of lumps in it. It almost looks like it should be exfoliating, but it isn’t as the lumps do just dissolve as you rub it into your skin. I did notice on the Lush website that someone else commented on the consistency of the product which is good (though bad for Lush) as I wondered if I just got a bad one!
Either way though, the shower gel does rub in normally and does lather as it should. Perhaps the lumpiness is just moisturiser as I have no complaints about the actual product. The smell is really good and apple is definitely the main scent I get. It’s delicate and subtle, but still lingers. I definitely wish the bath bomb smelt this good!
Would I buy it again….? Maybe. The consistency is a little off putting. If it was more like the other shower gels, I think I probably would as the smell is great. However pouring off milk into your hand, probably isn’t top of my list when it comes to taking a shower!
