LUSH – It’s Raining Men Limited Edition Shower Gel

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 20 - 2011

Yum. Oh.

I’m a long-standing fan of Lush’s Honey I Washed the Kids soap. It’s got no whizz-bang exciting things going for it but it’s comforting. Like an old-favourite jumper washed many times over, I’ve been repurchasing it once or twice a year since my early twenties.

Which is why I was excited to see the scent launched into a new Limited Edition shower gel that goes by the name of: It’s Raining Men. Alongside the other limited edition launches for Valentine’s Day, It’s Raining Men will only be around for a short while… so I suggest you go sniff it out tout de suite!

It foams REALLY well… and to be quite blunt, when a shower gel (that doesn’t claim to contain magical properties) costs nearly £8 for 250ml, that’s an important thing to know about it.  It means that I can see this bottle lasting me for a good long time.  Judging by my usage of the sample I was sent, I’d estimate that it’ll still be going in 3 months time.  You really only need a drop on a bath lily to work up a huge lather.

As for the scent?  To me it’s a little sweeter than my HIWTK soap… just a touch.

It’s Raining Men is a saccharine feast for the shower that bubbles up beautifully and leaves my skin with a delicate honey-ed scent.  I like it and I’m purchasing a backup at the weekend in preparation for it leaving the shelves for good.

Lush – It’s Raining Men limited edition Shower Gel is available online or instore at LUSH

    I had a sniff of this in Lush the other day and I hate to admit I really didn’t like the smell. I’ve never been a fan of honey scented products so that’s most probably well. It’s a good thing, now I won’t buy it I can focus on using up my Snow Fairy!

    xo

    Ooh i’ve been wanting to get to a Lush to try this since it came out. I love HIWTK so i’ll probably love this too. Also want to try the Love Birds soap, the description sounds yummyy.

    I love the name and the scent! They should make this permanent. I had Snow Fairy and it was all I could do to use it up. I don’t like that one at all… or my Rock Star soap. I always use Honey I Washed The Kids because it smells so much like a baby soap that’s also practically edible. There isn’t that old honey smell you get with most scents.

  4. will have to try and remember to get this before it goes, sounds gorgeous!!

    I’m off to grab a few of these this weekend, I love the HIWK soap (got one on the go atm actually!) but with my eczema soaps aren’t wonderful on my skin so I limit my use of it…shower gels on the other hand don’t seem to set me off! Huzzah!

  6. yumm I love honey scented products. I’ll have to go sniff this out soon.

    I like the smell of Honey I Washed The Kids, but my favourite smell has to be Porridge, closely followed by Sexy Peel.

    Oh i really like the scent of Honey IWTK but don’t like Lush soaps so this sounds great! But £8? :/ too rich for my blood.
