Learn how to make the best copycat Lush shower jellies with a few simple ingredients in this easy DIY beauty tutorial. Video included.
Everyone is always talking about how amazing Lush beauty products like their shower jellies are, but they’re so expensive! Did you know you could make your own copycat Lush beauty products for a fraction of the price?
In this tutorial, I show you how to make copycat Lush Shower Jellies. I used orange and black this time, but you can swap out colorant and glitter colors to make any combination you want.
A lot of people had questions about storing homemade shower jellies. I like to store mine in a mason jar in the refrigerator until we’re ready to use them.
Then we just take one out at a time and use it until it’s gone. If you give them to the kids in the tub, they’ll figure out a way to use the entire bar in one bath, so you may want to make smaller bars for kids.
