written about Lush on my blog yet, I would like to disclose that I’m
a massive fan, and have been for years. It doesn’t hurt that my
partner works for them and we get a very attractive discount and
regular samples and freebies.
I popped into Lush at
Sunderland recently to have a spy at any new products and came across
Happy Hippy shower gel. I could smell it before I got near it. I was
looking for something citrusy, something to cheer me up on a morning
and something bright and fresh for the summer.
Happy Hippy is
available in three different sizes –
100g – £3.25
I purchased the large
one. It comes in a squeezable plastic bottle with flip cap, which is
fine, though the size can mean it’s a little awkward in the shower. I
personally would prefer a pump action dispenser.
The smell from Happy
Hippy is divine. It has a strong grapefruit scent, though not in a
harsh strong way, it’s very sweet and uplifting. You can also use it
to wash your hair with, which you can smell every time your hair
A little goes a long
way in the shower with this stuff, so although it’s not your run of
the mill £1.99 shower gel it does last. I find you get what you pay
for with Lush. They’re products are admittedly more expensive that
some on the market, but they use natural products that are not tested
on animals, so you get what you pay for.
It lathers to make a
soft, smooth lather which washes your skin easily. I use it with a
shower scrunchie for added bubbles.
Overall I love this shower gel. The smell is amazing and perfect for me. The scent lasts all day on your skin and is totally refreshing.
