Review: LUSH The Olive Branch Shower Gel


The Olive Branch shower gel, 100g, £4.50

This shower gel was in the My Fair Lady gift set I received for my birthday. I've always been in love with the Dirty shower gel from LUSH because it has that fresh, clean scent that I love but I've never been interested in the Olive Branch one. The ingredients include fair-trade olive oil and vine leaf infusion, both to moisturise and condition the skin. The oil tends to sit at the top so you do have to shake the bottle before using it.

The smell is lovely, I expected it to smell strange but it smells quite floral and fresh. However it is quite watery compared to the other shower gels which means I can't seem to get it to lather as much as I would like it to. You really have to be quick when applying it since most of it can drip through your hands before you get a chance to rub! It does leave my skin feeling soft and smooth, which is great, but I do prefer the other shower gels for their smell, texture and the after shower feeling!
