This is a review for the Lush (@lushltd) Glögg Shower Gel. This is part of their holiday line and will only be available for a limited time. This review was requested by none other than G of Nouveau Cheap!
Update: This product is being rereleased in 2011& 2012!
What it does:
Glögg is a LUSH interpretation of a Swedish spin on festive mulled wine. While it may be tempting to take a swig of our festive shower gel, we recommend you save the warming effects of the organic red wine, brandy and spice oils for the benefit of your body. Winter can put a chill into your bones and leave you with toe-sicles; heat things up, get the circulation going and get into a lather with this instead. Glögg and Cinders are the duo for you if you find the cold of winter difficult to deal with and want to stoke the embers.

This product smells strongly of cinnamon and cloves. Although this supposedly contains wine and brandy, I did not detect those scents.
- this scent is very unique
- lathers well enough
- this shower gel was not tingly. I was afraid it would be tingly from the cinnamon, especially considering the claim says that it gets your "circulation going".
- a little more runny than I expect in a shower gel
Would I repurchase?: Yes, when I can find it during the holidays. I think this is a great limited edition product. I would not stock up on it, but it's a great reminder of the holidays.
Hope that helped!
I have reviewed this item, even though it is no longer available on Lush's website, because they may be repromoted in the future.
