Black Pearl Shower Gel Review

There are going to be those that either love or dislike Black Pearl shower gel. I am still on the fence about it and have been using it on and off for the last week, after finding out that it was making a reappearance in the Lush Kitchen. I have had my bottle for a while now and never seem to reach for it very often. While I love the colour of Black Pearl shower gel, I am just not completely sold on the fragrance of it. To me the texture of the gel is off and reminds me of slime. But in saying that it could be, because we are coming into winter that my bottle may just need running under warm water before each use. Our bathroom is freezing during this time of year.

If you are not the biggest fan of Twilight shower gel, then Black Pearl shower gel may just be for you. Unlike Twilight which is tonka, lavender and ylang ylang, Black Pearl is chamomile and lavender scented. My noise picks up the chamomile more then the lavender. Black Pearl is a shower that will help to relax you at night, after a long day at work, studying, being or a parent or just for anyone that needs a relaxing shower or bath before bed. I do personally like Twilight more for relaxing but that is for another blog post.

Chamomile Infusion, Chamomile Blue Oil, Lavender Flower Infusion, Lavender Absolute, Olibanum Oil, Myrrh Resinoid and Almond Oil are the main ingredients and scent note to Black Pearl shower gel.

Chamomile Infusion and Blue Oil have a sweet floral fragrance. Chamomile is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, bactericidal and sedative. It is believed that Chamomile is calming for the mind, body and soul, soothing for both the emotions and the skin. Lavender Flower Infusion is used for its calming, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory effects and it is said to help heal wounds and burns. It is also has a balancing and calming effect on the mind. Lavender Absolute is a dark green liquid, that smells less floral then the essential oil. Lavender is often used to calm the mind and aid restful sleep. Lavender oil helps treat a wide verity of burns, sunburn, muscular pain, skin complaints, cold sores, and insect bites. Olibanum Resinoid is also called Frankincense, it is the resin of the Boswellia carterii tree. The resin has a woody, fresh and slightly fruity aroma to it. Olibanum covers the skin with a thin, protective film. Which is softening on the skin. It is perfect for those that get sore, dry, cracked and eczema prone skin. Myrrh Resinoid is used for its antiseptic and skin soothing qualities. It also has a decadent spicy scent as Myrrh trees are from the same botanical family as frankincense. Almond Oil has a conditioning and moisturising effect on the skin and hair as it is packed full of vitamin E.

Black Pearl shower gel lathers up nicely in the shower and fulls the shower with its Chamomile and Lavender fragrance. The colour is beautiful and has the edible silver lustre in it to. The lustre does not stick to your skin and the colour does not stain the shower or bathface
