Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel


This Lush shower gel smells absolutely gorgeous! It's a blend of olive oil, mandarins, bergamot oil and vine leaves. This makes the scent really fresh-smelling and natural. I think it could be unisex, as it's not too sweet and certainly not florally, but fruity and herbally smelling. It reminds me of Molten Brown shower gels in the way it smells actually; very luxurious and expensive.

The olive oil does separate, naturally, and so goes to the top of the bottle. The bottle recommends giving it a good shake before using it in order to make sure the olive oil is all mixed in. However, no matter how much I shake it, it never seems to fully mix in together. It is very runny to use, I'd prefer it to be a little thicker, but this is my only criticism. A little bit goes a long way so I do think you get your money's worth.

The best thing about this shower gel is how soft my skin feels after using it. My skin does go a bit dry in the cold weather and so washing with this is really hydrating it and making it silky smooth to touch. A definite winner in my eyes!

Does anyone else like Lush's shower gels? Which ones would you recommend?
