The first time that I tried the Assassin Shower Gel was way back in 2017. The week before its arrival I had ordered a bottle of the Ol’ Blue Skies shower gel alongside several other items from the Lush Kitchen. Unfortunately, upon delivery my bottle of Ol’ Blue Skies was missing from my box.
I got in touch with Lush but sadly they’d run out Ol’ Blue Skies so couldn’t replace it.
Instead of getting a refund I decided to go with Lush’s suggestion of them sending out a surprise-replacement-product… Enter the Assassin shower gel!
Without this whole thing happening, I’d never normally go for a product like Assassin always opting for the brighter coloured, fruiter shower gels.
This is what makes Assassin so special to me, had this accident never have happened I wouldn’t have ever got to try and enjoy the Assassin shower gel. If I’m being perfectly honest, I actually prefer it over the Ol’ Blue Skies shower gel.
If you like the earthy more natural smelling products such as the Grass shower gel then the Assassin shower gel would be a good choice for you. The Assassin shower gel is a dark shade of leafy-green and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.
The Assassin shower gel contains a long list of ingredients, some of those included are oakmoss absolute and the following essential oils, cypress, Sicilian lemon, and patchouli.
Its scent isn’t an easy one to describe, it’s green and fresh just like a pine forest. Elements of it really make me think of the Tramp Lush scent family, it’s like the Grass scent blended with the Tramp scent.
Its scent really reminds me of my grandad, I’m not sure what aftershave he used to use (I know it wasn’t Lush) but there’s something about the oakmoss ingredient that always makes me feel like I’m sat next to him on the sofa watching his favourite tv shows again. If you like non-synthetic more natural scents, then the Assassin shower gel would be a good choice for you.
The Assassin shower gel lathers up easily and a very small amount of it goes a long way. Mixed in with the steam and hot-shower-water the scent really comes to life, if you shut your eyes, it’s as if you’re actually showering in a forest.
Once out of the shower the Assassin scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it’s so strongly scented too. Why Lush haven’t made this into a perfume is a mystery. It leaves my skin clean, fresh, and ready to take on the day.
Overall, I love the Assassin shower gel, it’s not my normal go-to scent but I’m so glad I was sent it. I’ve heard rumours that it may be a product in April 2023’s Lush Kitchen subscription box, I have my fingers crossed!
