This will be the last Birchbox I receive.  I’ve been unhappy with the samples i’ve been getting in my boxes and my Ipsy Glam Bags have been so much better.

Lush Christmas: So White Shower Gel


So White bath bomb was my favorite last year. The fresh-picked scent of apples had me in a daze. I was thrilled when I found out they were making a shower gel this year.

A great thing about the physical composition of this shower gel is it lathers ridiculously easily and you do not need very much to cover yourself. This shower gel will last a very long time. It is similar to most Lush shower gels in it’s consistency, that is, thin.

So White is not moisturizing, but it is not designed to be. Since it’s packed with apple cider vinegar, it will be more astringent and cleansing than anything else.


The gel itself is pure white with speckles of sparkle. Don’t worry, this won’t leave your skin covered in glitter, it’s just used to make a beautiful appearance. 

The scent of apples is most commonly known for relief of pain. The scent reduces muscle contractions, and therefore helps foremost with migraines and headaches. A strange benefit of apple aromatherapy is that it can curb appetite. 


This vegan shower gel sells for $30/17 oz and has a shelf life of 18 months.
