Review - Lush Calacas Shower Jelly

Afternoon lovelies,

Quick question for you, is anyone else sick of walking into a Lush store and being stalked by the overly helpful staff? I know it's not just me, but I wanted to pick up some Halloween and Xmas bits so decided to place my first order online, and with in 3 days my box of goodies arrived (this is great as one of those days was a Sunday!

This year, Lush have based some of their Halloween items on the Mexican festival Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. I love everything about this festival, especially the sugar skulls so I had to pick up their Calacas shower jelly!!

Calacas means skull, and this little pot of lime goodness is shaped exactly like a skull. I couldn't get any pictures out of the pot as it broke up as I was taking it out!!

The scent is described as lime and jelly bean, however the lime is more noticeable so it is really refreshing on the skin. The scent doesn't linger too long but I found that I felt very clean, occasionally catching a zing.

I love that you only need to break off a little bit as it lathers up quite well really, although some is lost to the plug when I drop it, but never mind. I'm about half way through now and love it! Well worth the £3.95 for the 100g pot! Lush advise keeping it in the fridge for extra zing, but I think that can be a bit of a clat really, if anyone has tried this then let me know!

Have you picked up anything from the Halloween range? Have you kept it in the fridge before? Xx


  1. I can't wait to go to a Lush store and buy this shower jelly, they are my favourite Lush products! And I love anything limey! I'm also not keen on the over-friendly staff, I like to browse alone! xx

  2. Ooooh i love the colour of this!!! I have to ration my visits to lush as i go a bit mental in there... the shop assistant knows me now... haha x

  3. I love the Lush Halloween collection. I love their designs and the way it works on my skin too. It keeps my skin soft and smooth that is why I so love it so much!


I read and appreciate every comment I get - if you would like to let me know what you think then please leave a comment xx
