Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume from Lush

Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume.pngThe Yuzu and Cocoa Scent is a Lush fragrance that I know I would adore in any format that Lush choose to make it into. Alongside the Comforter it was one of the first Lush scents that I fell in love with. When the Yuzu and Cocoa Liquid Perfume came up on the Lush Kitchen menu a month or so ago, I was of course ridiculously excited. On the rare occasion that the Kitchen do release a perfume, they sometimes do both a liquid and a solid version. In the most recent week that the Lush Kitchen had Yuzu and Cocoa perfume on their menu, it had both the liquid and the solid versions up for grabs. Yay!

I rarely buy the liquid perfumes, opting for the cheaper solid versions instead, however if it’s a scent that I know I love, I do treat myself and grab a liquid. The liquid perfumes are quite pricey but since trying them I now wouldn’t buy my perfume from anywhere else. The quality that Lush make their perfumes to makes every penny you pay for them worth it.

One spray on the wrist leaves me smelling like jaffa cakes all day through. When I want the perfume to be a little stronger I also do one spritz on my clothes. Although I bitterly regret not buying the Yuzu and Cocoa solid perfume too, being able to spritz a bit of perfume on your clothes instead of just being able to rub it on your skin does give the liquid perfumes an advantage over the solids. Another thing I like to do with this perfume in particular is spray one spritz into my hair, my hair just carries the scent so well and everyone likes nice smelling hair!

I have only just started to include Lush perfume reviews on Lush Upon A Time as I know there isn’t too much you can say about a perfume, especially if you have reviewed something that shares the scent before. What people want to know is, one, does it smell good? and 2, does it last? The answer to both of those questions are yes. I would buy this perfume time and time again if given the opportunity. The Yuzu and Cocoa scent always leaves me wanting more, I will even admit to declaring that the shower cream smelt so good on my skin after using it, that it made me want to eat my own arm.

I have my fingers crossed that the UK Lush Kitchen follow in Lush Kitchen Japan’s footsteps as they have just released a batch of Yuzu and Cocoa body lotion. If I ever got my hands on a pot of that I’d be one very happy Lushie… Fingers crossed!

Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream from Lush

When I first got into Lush I was so focused on the bath bombs and bubble bars that the other products didn’t really have much of a chance to impress me. Bath bombs, bubble bars and shower jellies are unique to Lush, there’s not many other cosmetic companies that specialise in them and it’s those 3 specific, quirky products that initially got me into their store in the first place.

After I had pretty much exhausted every choice of bubble bar and bath bomb currently available at Lush I decided to try some more of their products. – Enter the Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream.

I knew of the Yuzu and Cocoa scent from the yellow bubbleroon that goes by the same name, I thought it had a beautiful scent but I always favoured the bigger bubble bars as I felt they were better value for money. When the flagship Lush store in Oxford Street opened their doors for the very first time one of its exclusive products was the Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream. 

As liquid shower products go, the Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream is slightly thicker in consistency to others I have tried before, a little however goes a very long way. The tiniest of drops can clean my whole body as well as keeping my skin soft and well hydrated – there is no need to moisturise after using this.

The Yuzu and Cocoa scent is amazing, it’s like swimming in a sea of Jaffa Cakes. It really is my idea of heaven. My mum was pushing me around Sainsbury’s once and I had used the shower cream earlier that day, I noticed that I could really smell the box of jaffa cakes on the shelf, it wasn’t until a little while later when we were in the freezer section that I thought to myself wow I can still smell the jaffa cakes, I then realised it was in fact me that smelt like jaffa cakes! The Yuzu and Cocoa scent stays with you ALL DAY, I haven’t come across another Lush scent that lasts so long, it truly is beautiful.

Packed with tonka, grapefruit and bergamot oils Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream is the perfect pick me up product, I always find using it lifts my mood. Since discovering Lush I have completely changed my mind set on grapefruit. Growing up I hated it but for some reason, every product that Lush creates with grapefruit in really, really impresses my nose. So there you go, Lush have persuaded me to break a habit of a lifetime, I now, thanks to this shower cream and the Frozen Bath Bomb, have a level of appreciation for grapefruit that I have never had before.

Lush Kitchen really need to make a whole load more Yuzu and Cocoa scented products as the bubbleroon and shower cream just isn’t enough for me any more, I NEED MORE! Imagine a Yuzu and Cocoa shower jelly or body lotion, wow.

You have got to try the Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream at least once, it is now also available in all Lush stores not just Oxford Street!  there really isn’t an excuse to not try it now, do it! you will not regret it.
