One of my favourite Lush smells is Rose Jam. I love Turkish delight so of course I want to smell like one too. In fact one of my first ever blog posts was a Rose Jam review.
In a recent trip to Lush Cardiff I noticed their a few of their festive favourites were available as a Naked Shower Gel instead of as a liquid in a plastic bottle.in a few of their festive fragrances. For those who do not know what a “naked” shower gel is, it is a completely packet-less solid product.

I think the Lush employee could smell the scepticism on me so asked if I’d like to try it. No no, I didn’t strip off whilst she chucked a bucket of water over me, instead I used it on my hands. Expecting soap I was amazed at how extra slippery the naked shower gel was but what impressed me more was the amount of lather! Looks can be deceiving. This is no soap!
So how do you I naked shower gel?
- Get in the shower (ha ha… sorry).
- When you are suitably wet, slide the bar all over your body. Don’t worry about trying to make it lather, just make sure you are suitable covered.
- Grab your favourite body puff, rub all over and be amazed as you start to see a lather form!
- Rinse off and enjoy the fragrance.
It’s that simple. I really can’t express how impressed I was at the amount of foam once the body puff got involved in the shower action. I honestly was expecting to regret not purchasing the standard liquid gel but I am now converted. Not only are the naked shower gels cheaper, they last longer and are infinitely better for the environment. Win, win, win!
But didn’t you say they were super slippy? How do I store it?
Easy! In a soap dish. I found an amazing one from Tiger for £2 that looks like astroturf (see picture at the top of this post).
It is best to keep it in a dry place (aka, not in the bathroom) so that it can dry out between washes. Nobody wants slime! I keep mine in a cupboard in my bedroom with all my other cruelty-free goodies.
I hope all of the shower gels become naked in the future as they are so much better. If you are still unsure or just a sceptic like me, pop into your local Lush and ask for a demo.
