Review: Lush Sweetie Pie

Along with Willow soap, another part of my early Valentine's day presents was the Lush Jelly in the cutely named "Sweetie Pie". I've tried these before and they smell amazing, this one is blackcurrant and it smells incredibly....juicy. It's not a subtle smell, it's in fact very much in your face sort of scent. Very fruity, and pardon the pun, very lush. A mouthwatering kind of scent.

The product itself is literally what it sounds like "jelly", (see pic below)  and you need to tear of little chunks to use it, i find it works best when smushed into shower puff, as otherwise it tends to bubble but not ever really..disappear. Just kind of stays there jiggling on your bits.

(Look at those pretty blue shimmery bits!)

It's a bit utilitarian in that you can put in the fridge or freezer and can use it afterwards if its a hot day or your coming back from a run, and for obvious reasons this product is quite popular with kids. Especially if your trying to convince them why having a wash is a good idea.

For most people I'm not sure if its worth the hassle, it takes a while to work, its not as convenient as neither soap or shower gel, and if your not careful about your smooshing then you might end up with bits of jelly on the back of your legs. More of a treat then an everyday wash. But worth giving a try, but only if your looking for something different or just can't resist the smell.
