Lush Review - It's Raining Men

It's Raining Men is the new shower gel from Lush released for Valentines day. The scent is created around their popular "Honey I Washed The Kids" soap, Made with lotus flowers and infused with sweet orange and bergamot oils.
Upon first sniff I found it to be a lot fresher than the soap. I could definitely pick up the sweet orange and the honey element was a lot more apparent. In my opinion there was very little similarity to the soap and I found myself a bit disappointed.
Upon use the scent turned much more true Honey I Washed The Kids and the creamy toffee-fudge aroma that the soap is so well known for filled the bathroom.
As with all the Lush  shower gels this one can be used in your hair. The sales assistant suggested using it as shampoo to brighten my blonde locks. I gave it a go and I wasn't disappointed. My hair ended up silky soft and looking bright and fresh. Not only was my hair looking healthier than ever but it smelt amazing. The smell really clung to the hair and I got my honey hit every time I gave my hair a quick swish.
Normally I am not too bothered by the Lush shower gels but if you are a fan of Honey I Washed The Kids then this is a must for you. However don't forget it is limited edition so don't forget to snap it up before February 14th.
