Yes, it’s hot. Yes, it’s over a hundred degrees. Yes, it feels like the sun might burn a hole through your dress. But let’s mutually agree to put a stop to the weather chatter, eh? Being hot in the summertime is not exactly a revelation.
Let’s move on to what is a revelation: Whoosh, the newest shower jelly from Lush Cosmetics. It’s a delightfully, squishy-textured bath jelly that made out of carrageenan seaweed. You can keep it at room temperature, refrigerate it, or freeze it (my personal favorite) and it remains preternaturally cool, even in the hottest of temps. Scoop out a little of the triple-citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit) jelly gel and bathe like a Scandinavian. That is, enjoying the circulation-boosting contrast between hot water and cold jelly. When you add water, the jelly becomes a sudsy bubbly mix, bringing out the scent of geranium and rosemary. And yes, it perfectly combats the heat so you can put an end to that banal weather chatter, once and for all.
