I bought a small bottle of this last Christmas (2012) simply because I wanted to buy one of every shower gel to try. I added it to my shelf when it arrived and didn't think much more about it until recently. Luckily, during the Christmas sale, they were selling off bigger bottles for a few pounds, and I opted to buy one of these as well, with the idea that if I didn't like it I could sell it on, but if I did love it, I'd regret not stocking up while I had the chance.
Let's just say that I wish I have bought another ten bottles, and I only hope they bring it back this Christmas.
Inspired by the traditional Mexican Christmas Punch, this shower gel is a mixture of orange juice and tequila - a bright, boozy, fruity and uplifting shower gel that lingers on the skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and gorgeous. As Lush say themselves, it packs a Ponche!
Made from a mixture of freshly squeezed orange juice, plum and cinnamon infusions, a good shot of tequila and a fruity fragrance, this zesty offering is beautifully light and smells divine. It's a lovely fruity and boozy scent that feels great to use in the morning when you're still half-asleep, and it fills my whole bathroom with its gorgeous scent.
The orange smell is definitely the prominent scent, which is a good thing as I was worried the tequila would dominate - there is nothing worse than showering with a strong and warm scent of alcohol - yuck!
Despite it being released for Christmas, this shower gel works amazingly well as a summer shower gel, as the light, fruity smell would be a great accompaniment after a long day on the beach. It lathers up really well so you need to use a minimal amount each time. This means my lousy two bottles should hopefully last me until the end of the year!
One of my favourite Lush products for sure, and one I'll be waiting for with baited breath this Christmas - perhaps even more so than Snow Fairy!
