Review: Lush Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie

P1050143

A quick review of yet another Lush product from my huge Christmas box! I’ve been using Lush Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie for a little while now, and really like it, so I thought I’d show you this unusual shower product and tell you why I like it so much.

Turkish Delight is a shower gel and not a shower gel at the same time – it’s not a liquid, for a start! You know when you’re baking a cake and you cream the butter and sugar together? That’s the texture of Turkish Delight. For all that it’s a solid cream, though, this is still a product for washing with, not a shower moisturiser like Lush’s Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. You just grab a little bit, and lather it up, and from then on out, it just works like a regular body wash.

Unlike normal shower gel, however, Turkish Delight was created to be incredibly soft and good for your skin. It’s moisturising without being heavy, and doesn’t leave your skin feeling squeaky or stripped, just softly clean. It’s almost like a creamy face cleanser for your body! Sensitive skin should be fine with this, too.

As with many Lush things, one of the most amazing things about this product is the smell. Turkish Delight has a super-soft, super-sweet rose scent, but it’s not quite as jammy as Rose Jam/Ro’s Argan. Instead, this is more of a powdery, old-fashioned Hollywood rose. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s a very grown-up, sophisticated rose scent. The perfume lingers on your skin after you’re out of the shower, but it’s subtle enough that I don’t find it clashes with my perfume.

There’s one big downside to Turkish Delight: at £16.25 for 200g, it’s exorbitantly expensive! It’s a really lovely treat, but there’s no way I could recommend it for an everyday shower cream, except to lottery winners… Have you tried this? What do you think?

  1. Sounds like something I’d love! I’ll definitely check it out next time I’m in Lush! But it does sound like it’s really really expensive. Do you find you use a lot each time you use it? xx
