Lush Almond and Coconut Smoothie
On my quest to discover some new Lush goodies, their Almond and Coconut Smoothie landed into my shopping basket due to raves from MissGlamorazzi. As a shower only gal, I'm always dreaming of bubbly baths with fun bath bombs and melts. Luckily Lush has us shower folks on the mind and formulated a variety of shower smoothies which look like lotions but foam into soap.
The Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie retails for $21.95 for an 8.8 oz tub and contains a blend of vanilla infusion, a variety of oils, sodium lauryl sulfate and others ingredients. I am happy to see some oils further up on the list than sodium lauryl sulfate as I can feel a bit of creaminess in the product when I lather up. The lather is not very thick and dissipates into a milky wash when it comes in contact with more water.
The scent is lovely and predominantly vanilla-like. I think they should have named this Vanilla Shower Milkshake instead due to the scent and texture. The smell is light but noticeable and just the right balance of sweet and warm. I personally enjoy the scent and find it one of the winning features of this product.
As a once or twice weekly shower treat, the Lush Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie is a nice product to have on hand. It also works very well to prep the skin for a smooth shave or scrub. If you're a fan of the scent and want to jazz up your shower routine, this might be a nice pampering product to consider!
