The Comforter Shower Cream

RIP to yet another much loved popular product. The Comforter Shower Cream was discontinued at the end of 2017.

As the name suggests, this pinky-purple Shower Cream was exactly the same scent as The Comforter Bubble Bar which has a fruity, juicy sweet scent of blackcurrants and fruit tea. It really reminds me of when I used to drink warm blackcurrant squash when I was much younger and it’s meant to invoke the sense of being hugged by a warm blanket and I think it does just that. It really is comforting.

The scent is actually made up of Cassis Absolute, Cypress Oil and Bergamot Oil but really the only smell I can detect is the Cassis, it seems the other oils just enhance the sweetness.

Mixed in with these ingredients we have nourishing Murumuru and Cocoa Butters which leave your skin feeling luxuriously soft and conditioned. Along with Almond Oil which is a wonderful ingredient with many benefits for the skin, these are what give The Comforter it’s thick, creamy consistency.

Lush have also added both Vanilla and Blackberry Infusions to this cream, mainly to add to the delicious fruity aroma but Vanilla also contributes to restoring the skin’s brightness and softness, whilst Blackberry Infusion helps tone and tighten.

Because it’s such a strong and powerful scent, it stays with you on your skin for ages after, I can even smell it the morning after a bedtime shower! It also leaves you with superbly soft skin. I do agree somewhat with those who say that they don’t feel completely fully clean after using The Comforter due to it’s sticky sweet scent and because it doesn’t lather as much as other creams and gels, but I think it’s worth it to smell like fruit parfait all day!

Lushies around the world went absolutely ape when it was discontinued and honestly I was just as shocked as they were. But Lush love to bring back a discon product every now and then so keep your fingers crossed and make do with the bubble bar in the meantime!

Lord of Misrule Shower Cream

It’s only fitting to be starting my blog with something LOM scented isn’t it?

The name Lord of Misrule comes from the name of a specially appointed individual who was in charge of presiding over a feast day called The Feast Of Fools in the middle ages in Britain. His job included presiding over wild parties, drunkenness and other Christmastime revelries, which sounds like a great job IMO.

Originally appearing way back in 2013 as part of that year’s Halloween range, it has absolutely become a fan favourite, returning almost every Halloween since and you can now find it all year round at Oxford Street or online.

Unlike some of the other shower creams Lush has created, I find the consistency of LOM perfect, it’s not too thick like a shower cream can be. The lather isn’t a lot but I’m not a massive fan of shower gels and creams that lather up too much so for me it’s just fine.

The spicy scent of the Patchouli and Black Pepper is sweetened by the addition of Vanilla Absolute, giving a comforting earthy aroma that stays on your skin for hours after using it. It’s a very different scent to a lot of other Lush products so it’s no wonder why it’s became a staple Lush scent.

The Black Pepper Oil stimulates the blood flow to the skin giving a brightness that you can definitely see after a wash with this brilliantly green cream, however I find that the best thing about this product is the excellent moisturising qualities of the Cocoa Butter and the Wheatgerm Oil. Wheatgerm Oil is incredibly nourishing due to the high protein and vitamin E content meaning this shower cream is perfect for combating dry patches in the skin or just if you want to feel incredibly soft!
