The olive branch

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

100g £3.50

Out of all the shower gels (the 4..) this HAS to be my favourite. Its so citrusy sweet and.. Well.. Amazing!

Its quite a runny shower gel, and you have to shake it to mix the oil's on the top (looks like white foam, almost) with the gel. Once its cloudy, its ready to use.

A tiny amount of this gives me tons of bubbles when used in a shower poof, and the smell lasts on me ALL day long. Such a comforting smell. Some people say it has the smell of 'cigarettes' but all i can say to these people is 'You must have a bad batch', because the smell of olive branch is most definatly not smokey.

Its wonderfully moisturising, and great value for money. I have to give it 5- 5. I cant fault it at all.

Side note- I just made a body salt scrub with this, and some olive oil, which smells and feels AMAZING. Nice and scrubby, and the smell lasts all day (The olive oil makes it very moisturising as well.. Give it a try!)

WooHoo! Ok here we go... Scents I dislike, (because I like most)

Citrus
Chocolate


LOVE LOVE LOVE Glitter. I'm a freak for it. Lmao.

My skin is pretty well behaved, so I'd say Combo, leaning toward dry. So anything moisturizing would be great! Thanks so much!

Haha, well you really ARE easy to please! From the sounds of it, you would HATE sonic death monkey though. Lime and chocolate, haha, that would be your biggest hate!

Ok, here are a few i think every one should try at least once:

*Creamy candy bubble bar (very sweet)
*Butter ball bath bomb (vanilla, FULL of coco butter, VERY moisturising)
*sex bomb bath bomb
*Honey i washed the kids soap (honey, very sweet, its WONDERFULL)
*angels on bare skin facial cleanser (good for combo skin) (lavender)
*silky underwear dusting powder (jasmine)
*bathos bubble bar (violets)
*buffy (the backside slayer) body butter
*rockstar soap (candy, vanilla)
*Sakura bath bomb (mimosa, cherry blossom)
*Blue skies and fluffy white clouds (old spice, patchouli)
*Honeybee bath bomb (honey)

Those will give you the basic lush experience!

Glittery things:

*Fairy jasmine (jasmine)
*black pearl (recently DC'ed, might be able to get one though) (black currents)
*youki- hi (extream jasmine)
*Bathos bubble bar (violets)
*Flosty gritter (vanilla)
*sunny side bubble bar (orange..)
*Shimmy shimmy massage bar (vanilla)
*Glitter bug
*Bare naked lady (dusting powder)

I would look some of them up on the internet! I hope that helped some what!

Oh, and 'Imperialis' or 'Enzymion' Are amazing for combo skin!

Try a shampoo Puck as well! Seanik and godiva are amazing! (godiva is a two in one, shampoo and conditioner)
