Mister tried | Lush Twilight Naked Shower Gel

This winter Lush launched a whole range of “Naked” products, that is, products without any packaging. Amongst these products without packaging there’s a solid shower gel. When you think about it, it doesn’t really sound possible, but in fact, it is !

Personally, I’m still trying to finish the many shower gels I’ve bought from Lush in the fear that they’d run out and I’d be unable to purchase them again (the limited editions such as Lord of Misrule, Rose Jam or Ponche) before they go bad, so Mister tried this new naked shower gel for us.

What I really like about these naked products is that some of them (the shower gels and body conditioners for instance) are shaped the exact same way as the original packaged products. That way you immediately know what they are. The one that Mister tried (and that I’ve tested a couple of times too) is clearly a purple shower gel bottle and it smells of lavender. It is Twilight*.

That lavender scent is the same as that of the Twilight bath bomb and the famous body lotion Sleepy, as well as other Lush products that I can’t think of right now.

Personally, I used to love this scent but I’m a bit sick of it now. That being said, Mister still likes it and I quite like it on him too. If you like that scent in other lush products, you’re very likely to like it in this shower gel format.

As for the texture, I didn’t think you could make a solid shower gel, but apparently you can. When it comes to the feeling on the skin, it’s exactly the same as if you were to use a liquid shower gel from Lush. The only difference is the absence of a bottle around it (and therefore of plastic, and the oceans thank us !).

Mister has been using this naked shower gel for a few weeks now and he’s really happy with it. He uses it for everything (hair, face and body) as opposed to me who has about 78 different products, and until now he was using a Lush solid shampoo.

All in all, these naked, solid shower gels are just as good as their liquid, packaged counterparts. Be it the scent, the texture, the feeling on the skin, or the ease of use, everything is the same.

The only drawback, in my opinion is storage. We put it in the lid of a Lush solid shampoo metal box, but as you use it, water tends to gather in the lid and the product never really dries. I think that we’d need some kind of grid so that it could dry. But everything else about it is great.

As for the Twilight version, it is unfortunately unavailable right now because it was part of the Christmas collection, but there are two other versions available now, it’s Here Comes the Sun and Tender is the Night

Have you tried any of Lush’s Naked products ?
