Yuzu & Cocoa Shower Cream

    Like your favorite sweet treat, but ten times better! Yuzu & Cocoa shower cream takes everything you love about Yuzu & Cocoa bubbleroon and amplifies it. The perfect mix of earthy and sweet, with cocoa, bergamot, grapefruit, and yuzu...
   After reading reactions of Lushies, and my own personal liking, LUSH Oxford Street has a winner with this product.

"Yes it smells like chocolate oranges. No, you can't eat it. Cocoa and tonka absolutes meld with grapefruit and bergamot oils to effectively brighten your mood."

   Yuzu & Cocoa's scent comes from an array of ingredients that shine bright on their own, and when combined, create a complex loveliness that is nothing short of unique... To start off, the fresh yuzu juice that makes this shower cream linger on the skin. Yuzu is a citrus fruit/plant that originated in east Asia, and is believed to be a hybrid of sour mandarin and lchang papeda (another type of citrus fruit native to parts of China). This wonderful ingredient, along with the bergamot and grapefruit oil, leave Yuzu & Cocoa with a bouquet of beautifully sharp citrus notes.
   From there, we have cocoa absolute and fair trade organic cocoa butter, giving this shower cream it's forefront notes of chocolate... Literally, everyone that gets a wiff of this product says that they want to eat it, just like the label says. The chocolate scent is better than any frosting covered treat you'll ever have... Throw in some tonka absolute to the mix and all these ingredients combined give this shower cream a nice earthy undertone.
   When it comes to the working ability of Yuzu & Cocoa, it surpassed my expectations... The lather was rich, creamy, and yellow and I was left with silky, non-stained skin! Now, I don't advise people to use "regular soaps" for daily shaving, but I still test them out for those of us who get busy and need to be as speedy as we can in the shower. When I tested Yuzu & Cocoa out on my legs, it didn't leave any redness and my skin did feel nice after... I will say, if you don't like soaps that leave you smelling like their fragrance, then you might want to stay clear of this one! The scent lingered on my skin for several hours after my shower, although the longevity will vary due to body chemistry.
   As my final review for my Oxford Street soap week, I wanted to save Yuzu & Cocoa shower cream for last... Rating it a 5/5, and yet again wishing I purchased a larger bottle. This gorgeously complex product is one I highly recommend, look forward to purchasing more of, and am excited to see more reviews on.
