I picked Assassin shower gel up the last time it was out in the Lush Kitchen. In all honestly I think I may have tried it on my hands and put it away. Well, when I found out that it was making a reappearance in the Kitchen. I had to pull it out and try it out in the shower. It didn’t disappoint me at all and put me in a really good mood after using it. I can now see this being a shower gel that I will now pull out more and use. Assassin shower gel is a herbal shower gel, which fulls the shower with Oakmoss, Cypress and Pine, when it hits the skin and water.
One of the many things I love about Lush is there ability to bottle a fragrance straight from nature. Assassin shower gel reminds me of time spent walking through the damp bush/forest as a child. Picking up pine needles, pine cones and throwing them around, touching and picking the moss off trees. Just looking up and having a canopy of pine tress cover the sky, the sight just filling you with love, happiness and joy. Coming home covered in dirt with pine needles in your hair and pockets. There are so many Lush fragrances that bring memories flooding back. I am forever grateful to be able to pick up a product and it remind me of a person or point in time that I loved. Assassin shower gel is one of the products that does this to me.
Cypress Oil, Pine Oil, Patchouli Oil, Oakmoss Absolute, Rosemary Infusion, Sicilian Lemon Oil and Agar Agar Gel. Are the main frangce note and ingredients in Assassin shower gel.
Crypress Oil is used for its antiseptic, antibacterial and stimulating properties. It helps soothes sore muscles and increases blood circulation. It has a clean woody energising aroma. Pine Oil helps to clear and calm the mind. It also has cleansing and antiseptic qualities to it as well. Patchouli Oil is wildly used today in perfumery for its distinctive, earthy aroma. Patchouli helps relax and has an uplifting affect on the mind. There are also antibacterial properties to it, which are very kind to sore, irritated skin. Oakmoss Absolute has a earthy and mossy aroma. It has a rich, dark green colour like the forest floor. The absolute blends extremely well with other floral essential oils such as patchouli and jasmine as well as citrus fruit oils and vetivert oil. Rosemary Infusion is used for its relaxing and anti-inflammatory properties. Rosemary has woodsy, citrus-like fragrance to it. Sicilian Lemon Oil is a cirtrus fragrance. Which has antibacterial properties and is used to cleanse the skin and refresh the mind. Agar Agar Gel is used to help soften and moisturise skin and hair . It is a species of seaweed known as agarophytes which is nutrient rich. Its jelly-like consistency means it helps to thicken and hold other ingredients in products that it is used in.
Assassin shower gel is like the hot cousin to Grass, Tramp and Supertramp shower gels, if they were butch as farmers (no offence to anyone out there). If you love the herbal scents that Lush do, then you need it in your life. It is a beautiful, deep forest green coloured shower gel, that lathers up really nicely when used. The scent lasts on your skin for a short while after wards and the Agar Agar gel, leaves your skin feeling soft to the touch. I could not stop smelling my arms after using it.
I really do hope Lush put out more products in the scent family because Assassin shower gel is the only one so far that they have made. The companies and sister company before Lush has this in body spray form and a few other products as well.
