As you saw in my Lush Valentine’s 2014 sneak peek, I was sent quite a few goodies from the recent collection– available online now, and in stores January 27th. One of the things I was most excited about was definitely the Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel*. I love Lush Shower Gel, but it is a bit pricey (although if you get the 500 mL format it will last you forever and is only three times the price of the 100 mL size) so it has to be something really special to make me want to rebuy it. So far, that’s applied to It’s Raining Men and Rose Jam, but now there’s another contender…
The scent description just instantly lured me into Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel: pomegranate, grapefruit, and vanilla? Yum. This smells just as good as it sounds, it’s an absolutely delicious concoction that’s just the right amount of sweet and tart. I am seriously tempted to eat it.
I usually go for much sweeter scents, but I love how sour and fresh Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel is. You definitely get the grapefruit notes first, mixed in with the pomegranate and a subtle whiff of vanilla. It’s a bright scent, and I think it would be great for morning showers because of how invigorating it is. It’s also perfect for the spring.
Asides from how delicious the scent is, Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel has a good lather. It’s a bit more runny than some of the other shower gels, almost like Lush Ponche* (Reviewed here), but because it lathers well I don’t think you need a lot and even the 100 mL bottle will last me quite awhile. The delicious scent lasts on my skin for maybe an hour or two after I shower, and while I don’t find it so overwhelming that it competes with any perfume I’m wearing, I definitely wish Lush made more products with the Prince Charming scent!
Having just bought a 500 mL container of Lush Rose Jam, and being on a no buy, I certainly don’t need to grab a backup Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel, but this has me pretty tempted. It’s a bright, delicious scent and a great product, so I definitely recommend checking it out before it disappears.
Do you prefer citrus or warm scents in the shower?
