Well, Jell-O there! I’ll be right with you… I’m just taking a shower with Lush’s new Jilted Elf.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to wash with (and wiggle) Lush’s latest shower jelly. As a chronic new product junkie, especially when it comes to bath stuff, I knew I had to give this bright green blob a try.
I’ve never used anything quite like it before…at least not as an adult! It has a gelatinous consistency, and to use it, you can either jiggle the entire green glob out of the jar (weird!), or dig out goopy globules with your fingers. I chose the later, scooping out a small amount.
Sadly, as much as I like the texture and the quirky cool idea, I didn’t end up liking the product as much as I thought I would. The gooey bits took forever to work into a lather, and after washing and rinsing, I felt like my skin was wearing a thick layer of goo (I actually ended up washing again with a bar of soap I had in the shower).
And then there’s the scent…a warm and spicy blend of what could be (but almost certainly isn’t) marmalade mixed with cinnamon, cloves and spicy chai tea. I’m betting it’s one of those love-it-or-hate-it fragrances. I like it, but I suspect it won’t appeal to everyone.
