LUSH Rub Rub Rub & Yummy Yummy Yummy ($8.95 to $23.95) are two shower gels that recently came out. Rub Rub Rub’s scent can be compared to Lush’s Sakura bath bomb (which is a fresh, spring-blossom-day kind of scent). RRR is not just a shower gel, but more of shower gel meets shower scrub. It’s not a full-on shower scrub (it’s just not gritty enough), but the sea salt in it helps make this gel give you softer, smoother skin. I actually like that it’s got the lather of a shower gel, but some of the grit of a scrub, because I can still use my bath poof to lather up and get some extra exfoliation in.

Yummy Yummy Yummy is comprised mostly of strawberries, honey, and almond oil. I definitely can sense the strawberries in the product, but I wasn’t as impressed with the actual product. It is runnier than Lush’s other shower gels (and I’ve tried several!), and it doesn’t lather up as nicely as their other ones, either. I have seen some murmurings about the product separating, but I’ve had mine for over a month with no separation whatsoever. So as a shower gel, you’re better off with one like Flying Fox, but I found a better use for it–my hair. If you want a touch of strawberry smoothie scent in your hair, just shampoo your hair a little with this instead!

  1. Which one is $8.95 and which one is $23.95? Did I miss that? Thanks! I would love to try RRR for $8.95 but not if it is the $23.95 one.

    I really like the RRR but I got a YYY free with purchase and I’m not impressed. It just sits in my shower, unused! No lather at all! Grr

    Flying Fox has been my staple for quite some time. I just love it. Next time I visit Lush I’ll take a whiff of these two shower gels. But it’s hard to stray away from my Flying Fox! :)

    I love YYY, and put up with the lack of lather for the delicious smell. It’s the colour of strawberry milk which is awesome! My YYY hasn’t seperated either. I love LUSH products and find that the sweet strawberry fragrance of YYY lingers on my skin all day as opposed to many other shower gels and shower jellies. I love it in my hair too! I find that it thickens up if you keep it in the fridge. The cool sensation is super refreshing in the mornings which is a bonus!

    I went to Lush today with the intent of buying YYY and left with RRR instead. The associate had me do a little hand scrub with RRR and it left my hands feeling amazing! I am looking forward to using this in the shower tomorrow.

    went to Lush couple months ago, there was a promotion that when u spent $60 + or was it 40.. dont remember but u get a free product
    and that was at the time when the YYY & RRR n all those other new lush stuff came out
    i got a free bottle of the big sized RRR , cuz there were only small sizes for the YYY
    i tried RRR for the first couple of times n it made my skin very smooth
    but then after it just made my skin sting.. n i didnt like that. the sea salt probably.. so i switched body washes
    i sniiffed YYY n it was too sweet smelling for my taste.. n if u know me. i love sweet & girly stuff.. but woww it was too much. maybe it was old..
