Years ago when I was at the start of a Lush obsession that was to last a couple of years I tried the Creamed Almond & Coconut Smoothie and wasn’t impressed. I was so unimpressed that I handed it to Daddy and instructed he used it for the kids baths. It didn’t smell of anything to me at the time and it didn’t seem to do much of anything really. But let me explain, I liked my Lush to STINK (of nice things of course) but the more heavily scented the product, the more I loved it. My house smelled like a Lush shop. I’m not even exaggerating. There was stinky stuff everywhere. This little pot of Smoothie didn’t stand a chance.
As time has passed and my Lush obsession has waned to a more reasonable level of just really liking some things they make, so my appreciation for the subtler things has become more refined.
Step forward the Almond & Coconut Smoothie. For the unitiated this little pot of goodness is a conditioning body wash. You lather it all over and wash it off again, just like a normal shower gel except this is full of extra goodness!
It doesn’t smell like you’d expect it to, you don’t open the pot and think it smells like coconut rice pudding, no it’s very gently scented with Jasmine, Vanilla, Ylang Ylang and Labdanum and of course almond and coconut. It’s rich, creamy, lathers up a treat and feels really soothing. I can’t imagine what I was thinking when I donated my last pot to my kids, what a waste.
Oh and as an added bonus this is the absolute bees knees for shaving too. At £7.75 for 250g this is a really delicious shower treat I can afford to regularly get, not that you’d need to since a little goes a long way.
Definitely a rave review for this gorgeous product.
