Originally available for Christmas 2015, Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly is now a staple of Lush’s Christmas range. It’s rather unique because it’s not the usual shower jelly shape, it’s shaped to literally look like Santa’s round belly!
Like all jellies, the base is made from Glycerine and Carrageenan Extract, derived from Irish Moss Seaweed. This gives Shower Jellies their texture, and helps to moisturise and nourish your skin. This particular Jelly is a deep red colour, filled with gorgeous golden stars and sparkles!
Santa’s Belly boasts the crisp, vibrant scent of fresh apples, very similar to Once Upon A Time Body Lotion. It’s so refreshing to use in the shower and is really unlike a lot of other Lush scents. Usually when you think of ‘refreshing’ your mind takes you to either Mint or Citrus, so it’s nice to have another really fresh scent to choose.
The scent is mainly from the addition of Fresh Apple and Red Grape Juices. Fruit juices are often rich in antioxidants and vitamins which help to brighten and refresh the skin, they are also great to add to cleansers because they cleanse without stripping moisture. Uplifting oils such as Neroli and Bergamot also add to the cheery scent.
There’s also a slight warming note to the scent from Star Anise Infusion. Stimulating, antiseptic Star Anise is often used in festive products due to it’s appealing, spicy aroma.
This is one of my favourite jellies, I really like the scent in this format and it’s really rather unique amongst all the other jellies! It’s so lovely to use in shower, it lathers up so much and the scent really stays on your skin for a long while!
