Lord of Misrule Shower Cream

   If mischief is your middle name, make sure you listen up! Spicy and sweet, with silver lustre... Lord of Misrule shower cream is sure to bring out the very best baddest in you.
   Lord of Misrule was an LUSH Oxford Street exclusive that I literally jumped out of my seat for when reading through the list of over 200 products that would only be sold (for now) at Oxford Street location... I got several of the LoM bath bombs last autumn, and its scent and lovely design in the water captured my heart within one use! When I realized I missed the LoM shower cream while it was in the Kitchen, I was completely bummed out... But when I read it would be a regular item at Oxford Street, I just had to get my hands on the shower cream version of my favorite bath bomb.

"Get down and earthy with this mischievous herbal blend. Add a little spice to your shower with black pepper and patchouli oils, and a dash of Fair Trade vanilla absolute to keep it sweet."

   My first impression of the Lord of Misrule shower cream was that is had far more silver lustre than I anticipated, which excited me, and that it was a pretty thin consistency... Inside the bottle and on the skin, LoM's scent is a beautiful arrangement of vanilla and patchouli, with dashes of black pepper here and there. The sweetness of the vanilla absolute is much stronger than that of the bath bomb, and on that same note, the bath bomb is more peppery than the shower cream... And as far as the sexy spiciness from the patchouli, in my experience, it is even within the soap and the bomb.
   There is Snowflake Lustre within this product, and it leaves a wonderfully light shimmer all over your body once you've finished your shower or bath... Looking at the bottle, Lord of Misrule reminds me of spells being cast into the air, glimmering all the while!
   As I stated above, the consistency of LoM is much thinner than I expected, and I don't recommend it for any sort of regular shaving... But that didn't sway me either way. I love how smoothly it applies to the skin, and the rich color makes me feel like its the witching hour all over again... But, I will say this; Pale people be cautious! I have bleached parts of my skin, technically its scarring, from some bad flare ups of my autoimmune condition. My regular skin pigment is more golden tan... I noticed that the bleached out scarring did stay a bit green after rinsing off. It only lasted for about half an hour or so before disappearing, but that is still something to keep an eye on.
   I rate Lord of Misrule shower cream with a 5/5, even with the minor tinting of my skin... I cannot wait to get my hands on a larger bottle of this gorgeous shower cream, and I recommend you give it a try as well... Now, go out and get into a little mischief.
