Review: Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel - Olives or Bergamot?

This is a review of the Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel. I'm not sure where I bought this - either in the US or in the UK. In Japan, this product is called オリーブ収穫祭 (Oriibu Shuukakusai, "Olive Harvest")

What it does: (from Lush.co.uk)
Fairtrade olive oil, fresh mandarins, bergamot oil and vine leaves We've crammed the whole Mediterranean diet into this bottle – well, all bar the pasta, because that isn't lovely on your skin like the rest There’s a lot of top quality olive oil in this bottle, but it does like to sit at the top on its own. So, before you use, give it a good ol’ shake to get the oil mixed back through.

Price: $9.95, 4.25GBP, 900 JPY. Considering that the Japanese price includes tax while the US price does not, there is a high chance that this product is cheaper in Japan!


Pros:
  • This product smells strongly of bergamot, which I really like!  This is not a girly scent, and would work well for men as well.
  • A little goes a long way with this product.  I needed half the amount of shower gel that I usually use
Cons:
  • Like many Lush shower gels, this is a very watery product. Be careful not to apply too much!
  • Lush claims that the olive oil in the product will help moisturize the skin. I still needed to apply lotion.
Notes: This product is supposed to separate - Lush's website says the top layer is olive oil, and that the bottle should be shaken up before using.

Would I repurchase? Yes, this may be my favorite Lush shower gel so far!  I really like the scent!

I'm still going back and forth between my "traditional" picture composition and the "new" composition. Which do you like better?

I have officially gone through my entire stash of Lush products to review!   What Lush product would you like to see next?

Hope you enjoyed this review!

  2. Glad you liked Olive Branch. I love the smell of olive branch and I use it as a shampoo too. It's also my fav shower gel from LUSH. If you want to try some other products with the same smell the Pop in the Bath bubble bar is the same scent.
