I feel as though Whoosh has been around forever. I’m not sure when exactly it was first released but it’s been definitely been over ten years. I first came across Whoosh when I was much younger, my mum had been gifted it by somebody and it sat for a long while in our bathroom. That’s until I realised what it was and became obsessed with how it felt, realising how much fun I could have with it! I’m pretty sure I destroyed it before my mum even had a chance to use it…
Shower jellies were inspired by the popular British staple at a kid’s birthday party, the combo of jelly and ice cream! Furthermore, they were actually invented for the company’s own 10th birthday in 2005!
Mineral-rich carrageenan extract, derived from seaweed, forms the unique solid base, therefore making the jellies actually pretty moisturising! It also is the perfect carrier for fruit juices and Whoosh features a triple threat of Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit, giving it a zesty uplifting fragrance that smells exactly like lemon and lime flavoured squash or sweets!
These citrus juices also make Whoosh very cleansing and toning for the skin. Large amounts of vitamin C in these fruits mean that they’re also very antioxidant, rejuvenating tired and dull skin.
Whoosh also contains a large quantity of Honey Water, amplifying the hydrating properties of the seaweed base and further protecting the skin. Rosemary Oil has also been added to balance and help with any tense muscular aches and pains!
I love using this energising jelly to wake me up on hot summer mornings, I grab it straight from the freezer so it’s extra refreshing! As someone who’s not a massive fan of citrus scents, I actually rather like this one, so would be pleased to see more of it in other formats some day. I always find my skin looks visibly brighter also, which gives me a boost of confidence as a nice added touch!
