In my household you can split us into two categories - Lush fans and erm...not Lush fans?
All of the girls love nothing more than a good Lush splurge or bubble bath for that matter and yet the males don't quite understand the appeal. Enter a bottle of Lush Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel and the whole game was flipped and reversed (does anyone recall the Blazin' Squad song of a similar name? No thought as much). Neither myself, sisters nor mum could quite get to grip with the unique fragrance and yet the male members lapped it up.
Lush Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel is an odd one, a blend of citrus, chocolate and coffee, much like the caffeinated beverage it is an acquired taste. In my opinion it is an odd fragrance and not something I could personally bring myself to use in my morning shower for which it has been created. The concept is that the caffeine, citrus and sugary sweet notes help to awaken and give the sleepiest of us a boost. In my opinion if you like chocolate and/or coffee, hopefully both, scents then this will be right up your street otherwise I wouldn't recommend blind buying as it is a strange concoction.
Much like any shower gel this cleanses and softens the skin (it can also double up as shampoo). So why such a bizarre ingredient line up? Cocoa powder to fragrance and soften the skin, Tangerine oil to uplift and tone the skin, coffee to invigorate and fresh Lime juice to cleanse and of course put a little pep in your step.
Lush Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel is limited edition and currently exclusive to the Lush Kitchen,
