I’m a mega fan of LUSH Bubbleroon in Rose Jam. It’s one of my favorite bath products. Actually, it may be my favorite bath product. When I heard that LUSH was launching a limited edition Rose Jam shower gel, I started stalking the store.
“It will be in on Friday”, they would say. It was never in on Friday. Never. I went by on two different Fridays.
Jessica wrote a review published on Now Smell This that made me long for Rose Jam even more. I was going to order it online but I just so happened to stop by the store just in case before going home and ordering it online. And they did have them…and it wasn’t Friday.
I really don’t care about the Rose Jam formula as I’m more about its fragrance. It could be the junkiest formula ever but it smells so good that I don’t care. It helps that the formula isn’t junky…it’s a good formula.
The formula lathers nicely and rinses off easily. It does leave the skin scented. The sales team at LUSH will tell you all about the argan and how it’s amazing for your skin. They’ll try to convince you that bathing in argan is like bathing in the blood of virgins. You’ll never age. You’ll be forever beautiful. This is great and all, but tell them to shut up and let you smell this stuff. Because, who cares about rare Moroccan nut oils in your shower gel? This smell is why you’ll buy it. The smell is what makes this different than other shower gels with exotic ingredients.
Rose Jam really does remind me of Armenian rose jam. It’s a honeyed rose – a luscious, sweet and deep honeyed, fruity rose. It has a hint of tart lemon. It smells like rose jam – sweet and gooey. It’s perfect. It’s a must try for rose lovers and those that love gourmands.
Some of the LUSH products’s scents don’t translate from product to product. For example, the bar soap may smell amazing but the body powder smells like an “off” version of the soap. Rose Jam Shower Gel smells very much like the Bubbleroon that I love. And you know, I’m going to get more use out of the Shower Gel than a dissolving bath product that costs about $3.50 per bath. I honestly think Rose Jam Shower Gel is a good value. A little bit of it goes far and I can also use it as a bubble bath.
If you love rose as much as I do, you need this in your life. It will bring you joy and bliss. Showering in this will make you forgot all of your trivial worries. All you’ll think about is how amazing you smell. It’s a nice distraction from this crazy, crazy world.
Rose Jam comes in three sizes with prices ranging from $11-$30 at LUSH. This is a limited edition product and LUSH sucks for doing that. This should be a permanent product so they can take my money all year round.
