Have you heard about the latest skin care trend? These are colorful and fun! Yes, shower jellies are taking the internet and DIY enthusiasts by storm. These colorful jellies are the latest trend in skin care but reality is, they existed for more than 10 years now.
Shower jellies have been roaming the skin care world for more than a decade now thanks to the company called Lush, English purveyor of amazing soaps and bath items. Released in 2005, these jellies were made to celebrate Lush’s 10th anniversary. This is because in England, to celebrate birthday parties, there has to be ice cream and jellies. Thus, the company thought of creating a product mimicking jellies – can be used frozen cold or at room temperature with a wobbly texture.
