Big Calm Shower jelly by Lush cosmetics. 

Wibble wobble jelly on a plate….🍮 Shower jellies are becoming more and more popular each day. They seem to of come alive in the world of social media very recently. But lush have been making these wibbly wobbly creations for quite a while now. Lush have some regular line jellies and of course the kitchen jellies. I must admit there is a lot more choice in the kitchen for jellies. 

This beautiful creation is called Big calm. I had never tried this jelly before but after reading people’s comments on this i just had to grab one. And I am beyond ecstatic I did. In the kitchen the shower jellies are 250g and in plastic pots. These are brilliant as you can reseal and it keeps it moist and fresh! In the stores they do have smaller tubs if you would just like to try one out. 

Big calm shower jelly has become my ultimate favourite jelly. The smell is to die for. Imagine sitting on a far away island, with just you and the sea. Your sat sipping coconut, pineapple, orange and apple cocktails. That’s what this smells like. So tropical and fresh.  
In this we have the pineapple and coconut infusion, sweet orange oil, vetivert oil and carrageenan extract.

  • Carrageenan extracct; It can act as a thickening agent, and durable films can be made from it. In gel form, carrageenan extract is an excellent moisturising agent. Copolymers are used in hair products to make gels transparent. Carrageenan extract is an excellent natural alternative. Vetivert oil; is obtained from the dried, chopped roots and rootlets of the Vetiveria zizanoides plant, which belongs to the Gramineae family. Steam distillation of the roots yields amber colour oil with an earthy and smoky aroma. The scent feels restorative and relaxing and has been referred to as the oil of tranquillity

  • Vetivert oil; Aromatherapists consider the oil to be aphrodisiac, grounding, soothing and sedative. It is also recommended as warming oil for muscular aches and pains. In skin care, it is recommended for weak and tired skin. Vetivert is used as a fixative for perfume blends, which means it holds onto other fragrances that it has been blended with and releases them slowly.

As you can see this jelly is a beautiful marbled colour. From the dark blues at the bottom to the pale blue/white at the top. Each jelly like this will be different. Which makes lush jellies so unique. They can be used for different types of things. Some people cut them up into manageable pieces. As let’s face it trying to hold a big blob of jelly in the shower or bath can become very tricky. Then some people freeze the jelly. This will obviously harden the jelly and make it easier to grab hold of and give you the extra fresh feeling when it’s rubbed over your body. You can use pieces for creating bubbles in your tub. You can use it for washing your hair. And the most obvious one it’s used for washing your whole body. 

Big Calm creates amazing lather when it’s rubbed on your skin. You can see the moisture soaking into you as you use it. The scent lingers with you to. I could smell this for a few hours after I had used it. It would of been nice to be able to smell it a bit longer as it’s such an amazing scent. 

This was priced at  £8.25 and will last you a very very long time. Unfortunately these have now sold out in the kitchen. But I am sure they will be back soon. So keep your eyes out for them. 

Over all I would give this a 8/10. I wanted the smell to stay with me that little bit longer.
