Lush Roasting Chestnuts On An Open Fire Shower Gel is a new, limited edition Christmas 2020 launch. I purchased a small bottle of this online recently and I have to admit I regret it. I should have gotten the bigger bottle. But it’s ok! I can always grab some more before it disappears for good!
According to Lush this is a marzipan Christmas scented shower gel with soothing oat milk and chestnut puree. I’ve read some weird reviews on this but none of them mentioned that this smells like a smokier version of Porridge Soap.
I’ve read reviews that say this smells like Snowcake. I’ve read reviews that says this smells like Cinders. I’ve read a ll sorts of strange things about how this smells but I just smell a smoky, warm Porridge Soap! I actually don’t even know how to describe this. It’s a bit difficult. Initially you’ll get a strong oat smell but you massage it in you’ll get a cherry note from the almonds and slowly the smoky nuttiness arrives. It’s a very warm, comforting smell. It sort of reminds me of a warm bowl of oatmeal with warm milk on top sprinkles with almonds and just a tiny dab of maple syrup.
The formula is disappointingly runny but I always find that this isn’t a main characteristic as it can vary from batch to batch when it comes to Lush since products are handmade. There’s a very real possibility you may get a batch that’s thicker and more shower gel-like. Mine was runny. I was disappointed about this at first but that quickly disappeared as somehow, someway that runny, thin gel created to most lush, moisturizing lather ever. I was very impressed with how much lather this created not to mention it left my skin feel very soft.
All in all, another great Christmas pick from Lush!
