Lush It’s Raining Men Shower Gel Review

Lush Its Raining Men Shower Gel 2

Lush Cosmetics will be releasing it’s Valentine’s Day Collection later this week online. Word on the street is some of it is already in stores. UK’ers can take advantage of it both in shops and online. I went ahead and ordered some essentials from the UK and grabbed two bottles of the new Lush It’s Raining Men Shower Gel, couldn’t resist.

I have tried it before when it was released as a forum special item and it was called Honey Hugs.

Check it!

When Honey Hugs was launched it was a translucent shade gold however It’s Raining Men is a milky beige shade. That’s about the only difference between the two gels and of course, the name change.

One thing you have to keep in mind about this scent is it kinda smells off in the bottle. At first sniff it smells somewhat sour and overpoweringly jasmine-like. Jasmine comes across as a strong note sniffing from the bottle and can really give one a nauseating feel.

However, the real joy is using it on your hair or in your shower as it’s pure honey and jasmine combined that creates that beautiful foody-like scent. I always get some sort of caramel vanilla thing going on with this.

If you aren’t in the know the shower gel basically smells spot on like Honey I Washed the Kids, Ma Bar, Honey Bee Bath Bomb, etc…..

Like I said a sniffle from the bottle probably won’t win this any attention but bring it home with you, later up your hair and body, and prepare to fall deeply in love.

Don’t forget to stock up on plenty of bottles as once it’s gone, it’s gone and we can only hope to see it again next year. This is the first time Lush is releasing this as an off forum purchase so snatch it up as soon as possible.

Delicious!

    Hey, I’m new to Lush (but loving it!) and just curious what a forum item is? Thanks Muse, you’re the bomb-dot-com.

      Hi Alex aw thanks right back atcha. The UK has parties on their forum and when they have them they introduce limited edition forum only exclusive items. It’s not always exclusive items as sometimes they have launch parties but in most cases they do have special items they release at this time too. Perfumes, Snowcake Shower Gel, Comforter Shower Gel, Etc…have all been exclusive forum items ;-D If you’re a member of the forum you can take part in the party and place a phone order on that day to get these items ;D! Hope that makes sense!

    Actually, I have a decant of HH and have tried IRM and while they’re both great they’re not the same! IRM is all HIWTK to me while HH is not (but I am not good at explaining why not). Either way, I’ve got to get me a bottle of this!

    • 1/17/11 17:16 the Muse:

      weird beth. hh and irm smell the same to me once used in the shower. in the bottle they def smell a bit different but in the shower, pure HIWTK to my nose!

    I was at LUSH last week to see if they had any Glogg left (that store had five of the tiny bottles left and I..bought all of them :X), and I ended up buying a tiny bottle of IRM too. I am a huge fan of the scent of the Soft Coeur massage bar (which also supposedly smells like HIWTK; no opinion on that coz I don’t really do bar soaps so I’ve never tried it. I know, blasphemy!), but I hate the piece of chocolate in it, so the salesperson showed IRM to me and let me wash my hands with it :P Haven’t tried it in the shower yet, but I loved it in the store! I half hope it’s not something TOO special, I hate it when i fall in love with limited edition things like this! hahaha

    Muse, I totally blame you for my trip to my Lush counter today. LOL Despite me buying 2 big bottles of Snow Fairy during the after-Christmas sale, I got a 16 oz bottle of It’s Raining Men. My counter had just put them out today, so good timing on my part. LOL

    I also picked up their shampoo bar. The concept sounds interesting. I can’t wait to try it. :D

    I ordered the Valentine’s day stuff from the UK last week and am eagerly awaiting them to get here. I am a little scared since many people are saying there are huge shipping delays, but optimistic that you received yours already. I got a small and large bottle of IRM to see if I like it before opening the large one. Lush packages always make me so eager for their arrival. The UK Forum party from Dec 28th was awesome! It was my first one and the freebie hatbox was amazing.

    Hi MUse! I love your lush reveiws and I love your blog. Do you know if the shower gels and the soaps have expiration dates? Thanks!

    Reply

    • 2/8/11 10:59 the Muse:

      thanks gretchen. yes all lush has expiration dates. everything you buy from them is about a year or less. each bottle or product has a sticker with the date it was made and the day it will expire. shower gels are a year.

    I deffinately looked at this but decided to pass it up. I didn’t realize that it was a valentines day item so I’m hoping I can go back and they’ll still have it becuase I’ve been watching a bunch of reviews on it and I deffiantely want this now.

    Do you like It’s Raining Men or Honey I washed the kids better? Which one lasts longer and is more moisturzing?
