Confession: I don’t know how to use jelly pots

I might act like a bit of a know-it-all about Lush sometimes. There has been one or two occasions where I’ve dragged my boyfriend or a family member into Lush with me and given them talks about items they’re looking at and even recommended stuff to them. (If recommending is basically stuffing a colourful bath bomb in my overwhelmed boyfriend’s face and going ‘SMELL THIS’). I feel if I had a lot more confidence and was extroverted I could maybe even ace a job at Lush; advising Lush fanatics on our new products or what gift boxes people should buy family and friends based on said gift receivers personality or likes, mainly cause I believe Lush’s ideas and products have a lot of personality in each creation. There are some things I’d suggest to different friends and so on. Friend who likes nature, floral smells and is very gentle and calm? I’d definitely get them a Tisty Tosty bath bomb. Friend who hasn’t used Lush stuff before and you want to show them the amazing colours and swirls their bath bombs can produce? They should start with a Dragon’s Egg bath bomb or an Intergalactic bomb – both produce an amazing palette of colours and entertain you with the patterns they go through as they fizz up in your bath.

But I have to admit now there is one product, in my 7 years of using Lush products, that I still don’t know how to use properly. Shower jellies.

People’s favourite product to poke when they visit a store. The jellies are wonderfully smelling and coloured tubs of, well, jelly that you can use to clean both body and hair. I have owned quite a few tubs of Sweetie Pie and Whoosh shower jelly in the past but each time I have one I feel like I use the product completely wrong. I’ll be stood there in the shower staring down this tub of wobbly jelly wondering the best way to go about it. I’ve been told just to pick a bit off and rub that on myself, other tips have been to turn the shower off and use it or just use the whole blob and wash myself with it. But I’ve yet to find a way in which I think I’m getting the full benefit of the jelly. Whenever I wash with it I’m always dropping it and having it slip out of my hands. Bits and bits of jelly end up on the floor of my shower and I feel like they are bits of jelly gone to waste but is that what is meant to happen? All in all, the products smell amazing and are a really fun idea, however I’m totally naive to how to use these properly. Is it just me?

Thanks for reading! Please comment and share!

  1. It is definitely not just you. When I first used the jelly I was the same with bits going down the plughole.
    What I do now is store my jelly in the freezer. This makes it much firmer yet it doesn’t turn rock hard. You can pull bits off as normal and it holds it shape a bit better when rubbing over your arms and legs.
    I hope this tip helps.

  2. It’s not just you! I love the shower jellies but always have bits going down the drain. Reading the tip to pop the jelly in the freezer, it sounds like a good idea, but I’d forget it was in the freezer until I was already in the shower…so I’ll just continue to use it and accept a little bit of waste I guess! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
