I don’t normally buy gift boxes from Lush, but in the sale (which incidentally was not online this year, but in-store only) they didn’t have any individual items left that I was after, so I bought a couple of the half price gift boxes instead.
Snap! is normally £16.50 (£8.25 in the sale), and contains Christmas Cracker bubble bar, Rocket Science bath bomb, and a Whoosh! shower jelly.
I love the citrus scent of the Christmas Cracker, and I’ve previously used Whoosh! so I knew I would get on with those. Opening the box, the Rocket Science bath bomb had shed everywhere – it wasn’t broken, but the base is a very crumbly texture, so each time it moved (if the box was tipped, or moved) a bit more sheds.
On to the shower jelly, which I know is usually a very wobbly consistency, but this one has definitely got a problem….
….it looks rather runny on the top doesn’t it? I thought I’d test it out to see just how much liquid there was in the pot, so I tipped it onto the lid….
….I stopped before all the liquid had drained off, as below the jelly in the pot there was even more liquid at the base!
So I really wouldn’t recommend this gift box, as it would appear the quality of the items aren’t what you would expect from an expensive Lush product.
I was able to exchange the runny Whoosh! shower jelly store, but my opinion of the gift box still stands – given that the box is sealed, you have no way of checking the quality of the contents until it’s opened.
