I’m celebrating Halloween a month late as I just now received my lot of Ghost Shower Gel from Lush UK (I should add that it’s no fault of Lush UK that shipping took so long! I was participating in Lush Retro Races and my Ghost order was part of my Retro Race order thus the wait time!)! You may remember me previously blogging about this if not you can always take a skip through my past and click here to read all about Ghost prior to reading this review!
If you’re a fan of Lush Cosmetics you might remember a little cult item called Skinny Dip from ages past! Ghost quite reminds me of Skinny Dip with a bit of a twist! Skinny Dip was luscious, thick, creamy, and gorgeous and much to fans dismay, discontinued (as you become more and more of a Lush fan you realize how much hoarding and stashing large quantities of Lush away is essential to survival! Because once it’s gone it’s a difficult time mourning the lost of a hair product, bath bomb, or other essential item that you may use from day to day and suddenly have disappear!). If you suddenly develop a case of the lems for Skinny Dip you can always get it in it’s new form as a Buttercream but I will tell you the Buttercream is nothing like the original, gorgeous shower gel which I still mourn to this very day! I secretly believe that Mark decided to axe Skinny Dip because it had a tendency to go bad after 6 months or so (at least for me it did! I’d be the one that was stashing bottles of Skinny Dip in my fridge to keep them from going bad before I could use them! Later on in life I may (or may not) admit to purchasing a mini fridge to store all my Lush in but that’s a story for another day!) instead of it’s year expiration date but he’ll tell you it was because it wasn’t popular!
Anyway….I guess that was a rather long eulogy about my love affair with Skinny Dip and at this point you might very well wonder what I am on about! Well…Ghost is much like my beloved Skinny Dip and I’m so happy I did a nice large order for it! I ended up purchasing 5 bottles because I had figured if I hated it at least it would make great swap bait on MUA!
But swap bait be damned it’s now a part of my beauty vault as it’s wonderfully delightful! I was somewhat worried about the “scent of lillies” in a shower gel but to my delight it does somewhat smell like an offbeat Skinny Dip version! It’s quite milky, creamy, very, very very thick and just yum all the way around! When I say thick I’m talking about taking the cap off and putting the bottle over your head top side down and watching how it doesn’t slide out of the bottle at all! It doesn’t move! Magic my friends!
Now this is just from sniffing it in the bottle mind you! I’m not sure if the smell will be better or worst once I use it in the shower but I think it’s safe to say that this will turn out for the better once I lather up with it!
All in all I should have never been worried about Ghost not being a fabulous product because really it’s rare I run across something Lush puts out that isn’t blessedly wonderful! The only disappointing thing about Ghost would be it’s 250ML size (8.4oz)! I’d rather have had the 500ML (15oz) size offered at a bit more on the price tag but sadly I guess, for marketing purposes, they settled on making it in 250ML size! It’s ok I still heart it!
Cheers to Ghost! I think I might hop into a shower right now just so I can use it!
Tell me what you think!
It’s gone from both Lush US and Lush UK but you can always check E-bay or MUA!
Tell your Muse what you think if you ended up purchasing it!
