Goddess shower gel is one of the new shower gels from the community favourites release in June 2019! The scent is based off the goddess bath bomb that was first released as an exclusive at the 2018 showcase in Manchester. Jack Constantine made it with Ariana Grande’s song of the same name in mind and tried to recreate the milky purple waters that appear in her music video. Lush seem to have gone crazy with using the goddess scent in a range of new products. So far we have seen the bath bomb, soap, washcard, liquid and solid perfumes, oil, hair moisturiser and now the shower gel. Goddess shower gel is full of interesting ingredients. An oppulent blend of essential oils; sensual jasmine and sultry sandalwood along with cleansing white tea infusion, delicate damascus rose whilst the oudh is enigmatic and the floral osmanthus is grounding. On first sniff from the bottle I was definitely not keen. I could pick up on that tangy almost cheesy hint that I got from the liquid perfume so I was initially quite gutted. However I decided to give it a go in the water before properly judging it and once diluted, I really enjoyed the scent. It was just like the bath bomb, if not nicer. It created loads of bubbles (I paired it with the bath bomb for the ultimate goddess bath) and left the water feeling silky smooth all on its own. The stunning deep purple colour filled with the most gorgeous lustre only adds to the beauty of this gel and I wish I could get my hands on 10 more bottles!

Tender is the Night is an exclusive bath bomb to the Harajuku store and was part of the 2018 community favourites but will soon be released online and in some stores to celebrate the 30th birthday of the first bath bomb, invented by Mo Constantine. It shares it’s scent with the original massage bar of the same name. It’s always been highly popular with customers due to the floral and aphrodisiac fragrance. I have never been a huge fan of the scent as I find the massage bar to be not very strong – as well as the solid shower cream from valentines day 2018 range. It’s full of jasmine, ylang ylang and vanilla. However, I was stunned when I used this bath bomb. Not only was the actual formula lovely – the pink part would fizz quickly whilst the white was a slow foaming substance. It created gorgeous bath art and the scent was so strong in the water! It lingered on my skin for the rest of the day and just wish there was a lotion or a dusting powder in the same scent to go with the other TitN scented products.
Description taken from Lush ‘ Transform your bath into a swirling pink pool of fragrant florals and sweet-scented oils. Based on the popular scent of our Tender Is The Night Massage Bar, soothing ylang ylang and jasmine create a fragrance that’s both flirty and relaxing. The heady scent of vanilla absolute adds a touch of sweetness while softening skin, making Tender Is The Night a riot of romance and sensuality. Don’t wait to make your move—this one’s a limited edition love! ‘
