Lush Ponche Shower Gel evokes images of Erik Estrada in my mind. Seriously, the first memories I have of my older cousins were of them watching CHIPs on telly.
Am I giving away my age here?
Anyone remember that show….! I know it might be hard to believe but Erik Estrada used to be kinda hot.
Anyway, for Christmas and Holiday 2012 Lush has introduced their Ponche Shower Gel on the scene with a shot of tequila and a bit of orange juicy this boozy sensation will have you wriggling in the shower.
I’m typically veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy scared of Lush’s boozy shower gels, jellies, etc…anytime they say something is going to be tropical drink like makes me run in the opposite directly because typically they turn into NOT tropical but all BOOZE.
And now Ponche, a shower gel injected with orange juice and a shot of tequila inspired by traditional Mexican Christmas punch. They call it uplifting and fruity with an infusion of OJ, cinnamon, plum and a shot of tequila. I call it, not TOO bad!
I purchased two large bottles from Lush UK because again, I got suckered in by the promise of a fruity shower experience. I was tentative when I tried it out in the shower but I kinda like it. Fact…there is definitely the scent of liquor in it but it isn’t a bad scent as it combines nicely with the orange juice and creates a very fruity, sparkling blend.
You get a dominate orange juice note here mixed with other fruits and a dash of liquor but you also have that unique Lush “smell” (you know what I mean right Lushies?) to it as well.
It’s interesting to say the least and it satisfies my cravings for a fruity liqueur laced Holiday Shower Gel! This is what I had hoped Iced Wine would smell like.
Doesn’t look like Lush NA is stocking Ponche yet and unsure if it’ll arrive soon but if you must have you can get it from Lush UK, that’s where I purchased mine.
Try it, you’ll like it I think! Particularly if you’re a Lush fan!
