Lush Jilted Elf Shower Jelly
Advantages: Smells lovely, soften and hydrates skin, lasts a while.
Disadvantages: Not available through Lush anymore
I was given the Jilted Elf for Christmas last year, and have only got round to using it, and although a seasonal item (not in store anymore) the product is still available on a lot of websites, but will it be worth it?
The Jilted Elf comes in a two sizes, 100g and 240g, I have the 100g pot and it came with a Christmas Lush gift box. The pot is clear, which enables you to see the slime green colour of the jelly. The pot contains several pieces of information about the product, including the ingredients, how to use the product and who made it, which I think is a nice unique touch that Lush provide.
The colour of the product was the first thing I noticed about the product, it was a very unique colour, a slime green colour, which I personally love and it so very typical Lush to have lovely bright colour products. The colour is definitely a plus, but not particularly girly, which I'm very much used to, hope the smell is as nice. And obviously the jelly texture of the shower gel was very unique, and as I never used it before, I was abit excited, but worried how to use it as it was semi solid, so very different from other shower gels.
It is. It is a very unique scent, which does remind me of Christmas, it is a spicy but sweet smell, which is very nice for the winter nights! Lush claims the scents are figs, honey and seaweed, which I can't quite recognise, but it reminds me of cinnamon. For fans of spicy smells or warm smells, Jilted Elf could be perfect. Not for fans of sweet or sexy scents.
Using the product was very easy to use, I used it out of the pot, but could be used slightly cooled, which might give a refreshing feel to the shower. It is just used like any other shower gel, apart from you have to break the jelly to use in parts, I personally used about a 50p sized piece, and it was enough for me. It lathers up very well on damp skin, although the product isn't overly soapy. Also the scent makes the shower very relaxing and nice and warming.
After using the product, my skin felt very soft, which lasted throughout the day, and the product left my skin feeling refreshed and clean, and thankfully didn't dry out my skin. The product is very useful for all skin types, which is always an advantage.
I would definitely recommend to anyone, the smell si nice and the benefits will be suitable for everyone, and although can't buy through Lush (until next Christmas, I'm thinking) it is available for a range of prices, well worth buying a pot.
Summary: A lovely Christmassy scent!
