I’ve been using a certain shower staple since my late teens, and almost ten years later (cripes!), it’s still a regular in my bathroom! In honour of this, I wanted to take a moment to dedicate this post to my longtime love… The Olive Branch.
Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel is a softening, heavenly-scented concoction that leaves me feeling luscious from tip to toe. I can’t even sum up this beauty in words; it’s a trip to the Mediterranean in a bottle. The delicious scent adds an exotic twist to my everyday shower, transforming the space in to a musky haven with every use. This is quite a light fluid, a blend of olive oil, bergamot oil, fresh mandarin and vine leaves, but I find it lathers up beautifully on a sponge or shower pouf.
I usually just purchase a small-sized bottle, as it is only shower gel afterall, albeit my favourite every shower product! This time around, however, I decided to treat myself (I’ve had a very treat yo’self attitude lately) to the big bottle. This bad boy set me back a pretty penny, but I feel it was an absolutely 100% necessary exchange of currency – it’s true to say this product is essential to my wellbeing.
While the dreamy ingredients list gets to work cleansing and softening every inch of me, the incredible fragrance balances mind and body – and leaves my bathroom smelling gorgeous for hours afterwards. Hell, I even slosh a good bit in to my all-too-regular baths! Literally money down the drain, but you can’t put a price on happiness and all that.
Have you tried The Olive Branch?
