Valentine's Day with Lush - Prince Charming & Neon Love

When I saw the Valentine's Day press release from Lush, I got pretty excited. I was finally going to have a Prince Charming! Well, okay not a 'real' Prince Charming but in my world I am pretty happy with a Prince Charming body wash. I mean, we can't all date Prince Harry can we? Though if he is ever looking for an Australian girlfriend (or even a fling), I call dibs! 

Lush are pretty much my favourite shower product company. I love the shower gels, the jellies, the Daddy O shampoo, Big Shampoo and well, anything I have tried from Lush!  

I placed my order on the Lush website within hours of the products becoming available. I knew I wouldn't be getting to a store and limited edition collections from Lush sell out fast! I don't use our bath (which I think I have explained why before but it has to do with growing up in a drought and not a big enough water heater) so that ruled out the bath bombs and such. I was pretty happy to get the two items I did though - Prince Charming Shower Gel and Neon Love Soap. 

Prince Charming Shower Gel
"With marshmallow root, Fair Trade vanilla and fresh pomegranate juice, Prince Charming will sweep you off your feet and carry you off into the sunset, leaving your skin silky soft and smelling lovely – the fragrance is made using a beautiful blend of grapefruit, sandalwood and geranium oils." - Lush

Firstly (if you couldn't already tell), I freaking love the name of this shower gel! What a perfect name for a Valentine's Day themed product. I think a name like this instantly has people interested, it is kind of cheeky and cute. Secondly, the colour of Prince Charming is a darkish pink which is girly but not too girly that a guy can't sneak a use. 

The scent of this is not as sweet as I was expecting (I was thinking Snow Fairy sweetness level) but it really works. It has a sweet smell but the grapefruit provides that bit of zing that makes it a very uplifting and refreshing shower product. Perfect for a 'just dragged myself out of bed 15 minutes before I need to leave for work' shower.

Neon Love Soap
"This is a unique soap with an uplifting, fruity fragrance. Bergamot and rosewood work together to create a rich scent, whilst fresh figs, passion fruit juice and soya yoghurt nourish and soften the skin." - Lush

My past experiences with soap have not been good ones (this is excluding Lush soaps). Having skin on the drier side I usually find that soap exacerbates this problem. I hate washing with soap that leaves my skin feeling tight and light rubber. Luckily, that is not the case with Neon Love. I lather myself us in the shower and when I get out my skin feels hydrated and nourished. 

Neon Love smells absolutely amazing (probably even better than Prince Charming). It has quite a warmth to it whilst still being quite sweet, even my Mum loves the smell and she is fussy with scents. This soap leaves the shower smelling amazing after each use. 

TIP: I find the best way to use soap is to rub it against my loofer to create a foam and then rub the loofer all over. 

I am hoping to get another Valentine's Day themed post written before the actual day but I may just be too busy showering with these lovely smelling goodies! Just joking... maybe. 

The Lush Valentine's Day collection is available now online and in store. It is limited edition (so if you like the look of anything - buy NOW). A few items are sold out online so head to a store if you can. Plus - you can smell before you buy (oh! how I envy you city people). 

Is this your type of Prince Charming?
