REVIEW: LUSH Whitewash Shower Smoothie

A while back, I posted my LUSH haul from the UK. This shower smoothie was purchased in May but I am just now getting around to reviewing it! Whitewash shower smoothie was a limited edition retro release, so you can no longer buy it from LUSH although I am sure you could get it on ebay easily.
In general, LUSH shower smoothies are almost like a lotion that you can use in the shower! They are a cleansing product and a body conditioner in one. To use a LUSH shower smoothie, you just dip your fingers into the pot, grab some product, and rub it all over your body. They'll leave you clean, conditioned and super soft.
Whitewash is thick like a paste. You can see in my photos that it almost looks like spackle! It is made with aloe vera, China clay, and orange oil. It smells wonderfully citrusy, and it has a creamy scent to it, if that is possible? You can tell just by the look and scent that this product will be decadent! I've used it in the shower a few times, and it is amazing! It leaves my skin soft and lightly scented, and it is so soothing. With aloe vera as the #2 ingredient (after water), this product is perfect for use after a long day in the sun! The China clay also combats impurities in the skin, making this an all around amazing product!

Up Close and Personal with Whitewash Shower Smoothie!
I can't get enough of this product- the scent, the texture and the way it makes my skin feel is amazing! I wish I had bought more than one tub since it is no longer for sale on the LUSH website :( Do any of you use this or any other LUSH shower smoothies? What do you think of them?

P.S.  for those of you who didn't know, LUSH cosmetics is releasing a full line of makeup on July 21st!

  1. This seems great! I love body cleansers but I hate that some just wash off and leave my skin feeling "rubbery" instead of moisturized. Sooo many amazing LUSH products out there:D

  2. WANT! Right now I don't use any sort of body wash in the shower. Eew right? But I don't have time, to many guys around the house with no lock on the bathroom door. Can't buy online though... So so sad... :(

  3. I love your description of this, it sounds like such an interesting product. Something about the look of the texture I just love! The idea of a shower lotion really gets me curious, too bad it's not longer available. I don't think I have a LUSH close to me though anyway. :(
    Great review!
    (By the way, I've added you to my favorite blogs list! :D)

  6. I've never heard of this kind of Lush product. It sounds very moisturising and like it'd leave your skin feeling super soft and supple :)

  7. Lush is on the top of my list for a brand I need to try products from. I wouldn't have gone for this automatically but it sounds wonderful! It does look like spackle though. Weird! I'll have to see what similar product they have when I make an order.
