Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today I would talk to you all about the Prince Charming Shower Gel from Lush that came out earlier this year.
List of Ingredients:
Marshmallow Root and Vanilla Pod Infusion Sodium Laureth Sulfate Glycerine Sodium Cocoamphoacetate Lauryl Betaine Titanium Dioxide Grapefruit Oil Sandalwood Oil Geranium Oil Fresh Pomegranate Juice Water (Aqua) Carrageenan Extract *Citral *Citronellol *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool Perfume Colour 17200 Colour 16035 Colour 14700
I think that it might be best to get the negatives out of the way first. The main one is it's texture. Now, I may be a little bit bias, as I had Prince Charming a fair few years ago when it was a Shower Cream, but the texture just isn't the greatest for me. As I said within my Ginger Shower Gel review, the texture is a mix of an oil and a gel to me and it's just a tad bit unusual for me. If it was an oil, I would love it. I have skin that is dryer than the Sahara Desert, so an oil would be great. The weird sort of hybrid kind of reminds me of Slime or Goo a bit. It does make your skin feel smooth and soft after using the product though, so, it is worth the weird texture experience.
The smell is pretty great. The Pomegranate, Marshmallow Root, and, Grapefruit kind of blend together to create a sort of sour Chocolate Orange sort of smell. It's the right amount of creamy, sweet, sour and citrusy. I just kind of love it. The sweetness makes it great for those sort of days where you want to feel cosy because its raining but at the same time the citrus notes makes you want to smell invigorating because you want to be reminded of Summer. It's kind of weird to fully explain what I mean because its one of those scents at Lush that is so unique you have to smell it yourself to really understand the complex notes. It really is something that will sweep you off your feet.
