Oh my, talk about cutting it fine! V-Day will be upon us in less than 48 hours at the time of writing and I’m only putting this review up now! Hopefully it is better late than never… These are my thoughts on LUSH Prince Charming Shower Gel.

After I fell in love with the magical, limited edition gift from the heavens that is Snow Fairy, I wanted to try more of the shower gels from LUSH. However, it only dawned on me about last week that LUSH had released a Valentines collection. I know, what am I like?
The shower gel offering this time was the LUSH Prince Charming Shower Gel; boasting ingredients such as marshmallow root, vanilla and pomegranate juice. It also contains skin softening almond oil and sandalwood oil.
Of course, like Snow Fairy, it works like a normal shower gel. It’s quite rich so only a small amount is needed to get crack-a-lackin’, so my review is mostly based on the smell. Now, it’s not like a teeth rotting sugar binge like Snow Fairy; this is quite musky in comparison because of the vanilla taking the sweet edge off the pomegranate, with marshmallow softening the scent further. It’s not a scent I particularly love; it’s ok. It isn’t pungent and I can still carry on using the shower gel. Would I buy this again? No, not really. It doesn’t rock my boat (or rot my teeth). I also find it quite expensive for the amount you get. I got the smallest bottle you could and it’s nearly a fiver; pay one or two pound more and you can get a huge bottle from Soap and Glory.
I’m sorry LUSH, but this Prince Charming had a wasted journey! I’ll give him a bob or two for his bus fare back home though…
Have you tried the LUSH Prince Charming Shower Gel? What did you think?
