Nightwing Shower Jelly

   "I AM THE NIGHT!" screams the tiny bat made of jelly... Nightwing shower jelly is a new product here for LUSHoween and may I just say, it is completely adorable! Covered in references to The Dark Knight (including a hidden quote) and shaped like a bat silhouette, this is the ultimate creepy-cute product.

"When the dark night rises, jump in the shower with this soothing aloe vera and zesty lime juice sidekick."

   Now let's get one thing straight before we dive into this review... This shower jelly does not smell ~just like~ Calacus shower gel! Calacus is far more sweetly scented than Nightwing, although they would pair well together in a bath cocktail.
   While on the topic of scent, Nightwing smells exactly like LimeAid and it literally makes my mouth water! Gorgeous, fresh lime juice and lime oil help to brighten skin and your outlook on the day to come. The scent does not linger on skin much, if at all, and that is quite disappointing since this product is so wonderfully pungent in solid form... Aloe Vera gel soothes the skin while carrageenan extract, an extract from Irish moss seaweed, is an excellent moisturizing agent.
   This shower jelly rubs about quite nicely into a creamy, lavender colored lather, and you'll be happy to know I've not noticed any skin tinting (since its deep purple, almost black color has raised that question). My skin was left feeling wonderfully clean without feeling dried out... This is easily the runniest shower jelly I've ever dealt with, but a bit less so than I was expecting from what I've read about it. My Nightwing had some excess jelly at the top of its wings that blended into its head, but I was still able to tell it was a bat shape. Not to mention that this shower jelly cuts like silk, without any sort of crumbling apart or melting.
   LUSH also notes on the Nightwing product page that you can use it in your hair for a good cleanse, but I can't test that out do to my hair being colored - so let me know in the comments if you've tried it!
   I'm not a shower jelly fan (other than giving them a good spanking when on display), nor am I a fan of jello, but I'm glad I grabbed this little creature of the night - I give Nightwing shower jelly a 3.5/5. The scent not lingering on the skin really bothers me, but it still is a nice product... Make sure to pick up Nightwing online or in your local shop before LUSHoween is over!
