Having Some Posh Good Old Times In The Shower | Lush Gourmand Favourites Limied Edition Range - Posh Chocolate Shower Gel & Let The Good Times Roll Body Lotion

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that I would talk to you all today about the exclusive gourmand products that recently dropped on Lush’s website and in Lush stores for a limited time. 

Posh Chocolate Shower Gel 

Lush have decided to turn their best selling Posh Chocolate Body Wash into a Shower Gel for a limited time for those who prefer a bottled shower gel over a potted body wash. This may be for a plethora of reasons such as just preferring the texture of a gel to accessibility reasons such as it may be easier for them to open a shower gel lid rather than unscrew a potted lid. 

This shower gel contains Glycerine, Water, Cocoa Powder, Hazelnut Milk, Fine Sea Salt, Lactic Acid, Cocoa Absolute, Australian Sandalwood Oil and Vanilla Absolute. 

The texture of this shower gel was quite amazing. Thick but not too thick and moisturising without being heavy on the skin. I think the reason for this sumptuous texture is due to the Glycerine and Hazelnut Milk. Both are known for being quite moisturising to the skin. 

The scent is to die for. If you have smelt Posh Chocolate before from Lush then you will know that it smells of the most divine Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. This shower gel is very similar but to me, the hazelnut is a little bit more subtle in this Shower Gel. Furthermore, the Sandalwood comes out a little bit more when you’ve washed this off your skin. The Sandalwood mixed with the Cocoa Absolute makes for a rich Chocolate scent that lasts on your skin after washing for several hours. 

My skin is known for being quite dry no matter the weather and this shower gel made my skin feel truly soft and supple. If you wanted to pair this with some other products from Lush to create a gift then you could pair the Gel with the following. There’s Butterball to create a truly divine bathing experience. The brand new Magic Bus to create a sort of chocolatey tropical bathing experience. Orange Scrub to create a creative Chocolate Orange scent. Magic Crystals to create a refreshing Chocolate Mint scent and Coco Loco to create a shower experience that may remind you of Bounty Chocolate Bars.

Let The Good Times Roll Body Lotion 

The fans have asked and Lush has spoken! Lush’s well known and sweet scented facial cleanser Let The Good Times Roll has been transformed into a body lotion for those who want to smell like sweet popcorn all year round! You can now pair the Facial Cleanser, Lotion and Body Spray to truly smell like a snack! 

This body lotion contains Warer, Corn Oil, Polenta Infusion, Organic Jojoba Oil, Glycerine Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter and Organic Illite Butter. 

The texture of this is quite gorgeous. Sumptuous and conditioning but sinks into the skin quite quickly. I wasn’t expecting this as my skin normally takes a fair while to absorb Cocoa Butter due to my skin being on the dry side but my skin drank it up quite quickly. 

The smell is truly one of a kind. A true popcorn scent which I think is due to the Corn Oil and Polenta Infusion that is in this lovely lotion. I mean, its corn, what’s not to love? Personally I do think that the scent of this lotion could be a little bit more corny? I don’t know how to explain it but to my nose the scent reminds me of a mix of lightly toasted popcorn and a Creme Brûlée post it being torched to create that iconic cracking top that we all know and love. I do think for some that the scent of this lotion may be a love or loathe sort of situation. I have been using it for a while and I quite like it due to how it conditions my skin, If you layer it with a Body Spray or Perfume then it does give the fragrance that you spray on top a sort of smoky and creamy undertone which I have been enjoying. I’ve also been pairing it with an old All Good Things Solid Perfume from Lush and they have gone amazingly with each other. 

If you wanted to create a gift for someone with this Lotion then you could obviously pair this with the Facial Cleanser and Body Spray of the same name and create a little Popcorn scented bundle for someone. You could pair Posh Chocolate Shower Gel and this Lotion to create a combo that will leave you smelling like a snack or you could pair it with Honey I Washed Your Kids or even the Popcorn Lip Scrub that’s exclusive to the Retro Wall to create a truly gourmand gift set.

Thanks for reasing!
