Let's Talk Showers and Honey and Men. Oh my.
Specifically, It's Raining Men Shower Gel from Lush!
Now, in case you haven't heard Lush is the bomb.com. There is no comparison. When it comes to a good bubble bath, refreshing face mask, or on the go shampoo bars - Lush has got you covered! Lush is all the things that are right and good in the world. If you are having a crap day, week, month, or even a year... Lush will be there for you. (see what I did there)
This week I would like to talk about my newly purchased product, It's Raining Men Shower Gel.
But, first off, a little back story. I am obsessed, along with the rest of the world, over the almighty SCRUBEE! I was stung, so to speak!
The scrubee, originally a limited time product, took North America by storm about 5 months ago. It sold out like crazy. You just couldn't get it... period. I tried 2 locations in Orlando, 3 in Chicago, and, as a last ditch resort, I tried online. Getting a scrubee was a no go. But I wasn't terribly worried, I had a trip to London planned and apparently our English friends were way more equipped then we were in the scrubee department. After an 8 hour flight, 3 hour jet lag nap, 1 tube ride, and a brief walk - scrubees were purchased at the Oxford Street Lush! (Side note: This Lush was huge. It was like a Body/Face/Shower Wonka Factory. Lush Oxford Street, I recommend you.) Upon checkout, the sweet Lush hostess tried to explain to me what the little bar is used for and basically I was like, "Honey, I've just flown 4,000 miles for this Bad Boy, I got this!"
Notice my use of the word 'honey'... I'm sad to say that pun was not intended but completely welcomed.
Anyways, let me breakdown the scrubee for you. It is a little bumble bee - soap bar looking thing made up of Honey, Shea Butter, Cocoa, Coconut Shell, and Almond goodness. It's main purpose is two-fold - 1. Exfoliating - leaving your skin super silky and 2. Smelling drop-dead wonderful. The scent is what makes this bar a cut above the rest! I need more of this scent in my life. (Along with the rose jam... But thats for another post.)
This need for the honey scent is what has led me to my most recent Lush purchase. I saw an article online, or maybe an Instagram post, either way - I was finally made privy to the fact that a certain shower gel is made up of the same honey scent as the Scrubee. I immediately planned my next Lush excursion.
Yesterday, after a 10 hour work day and complete anticipation of spending last week's paycheck, I found myself in Lush.
With the largest bottle of It's Raining Men Shower Gel in one hand and a scrubee and bath bomb in the other - I made my way to the register! Victory is Mine!
Oh, yes, B-T-dubs - American Lush has caught up with our nation's scrubee addiction and has gotten their inventory in check... for now. I hear some locations are already wiped.
When bath time finally rolled around - I decided to use the shower gel as a bubble bath. While it doesn't produce many bubbles - it does make the bath smell yummy - which was my ultimate goal. I also used the gel on my loofa and it creates a great lather and provides that yummy honey scent I crave! Success!!!
Im super stoked for this purchase and would recommend it to the #ScrubeeAddict.
BONUS: It's made of great ingredients - featuring: Honey, Rosehip, Lotus Flower and Tiger Lily. All good things.
If you're only intrigued - but not completely sold on this product - it comes in 3 sizes! Small, medium, and large / tall, grande, venti. So, you can test it out and see if its for you! But, if like me, you're already completely sold. Get the LARGE! I mean, why not!
Also, if your nearest Lush is out of the scrubee - you can take a whiff of the gel and know the majesty of the honey! That should hold you over until the next shipment!
Oh and the name... It's Raining Men... I figure it just adds another positive to the whole thing. Smells good, feels good, and, you know... Men...Raining down from the heavens! Hallelujah! AND yes please. To all of the above.
Try it out and feel delicious!
