Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is this Yuzu and Cocoa.
The scent is supposed to smell like Yuzu which is a asian citrus fruit. And they add powdered cocoa to the mix.
Lush used to sell in store a Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream and a Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. Lush also made an exclusive perfume and sold it at lush.co.uk once
This does have glitter. It has something in it that seems to be somewhat conditioning to my skin also.
The scent is nice and strong.
When i compare it to the other exclusive bath bombs it isnt one of my favorites. But it is good.
if you like all things in this scent i would recommend it.
The yuzu is a citrus fruit and plant originating in East Asia. It is believed to be a hybrid of sour mandarin and Ichang papeda. WikipediaThis opaque yellow shower cream has the same beautiful, lightly fruity/powdery cocoa fragrance as in their in store ‘Yuzu and Cocoa’ bubble bar (it looks like a macaron), which is the same color as the fruit itself as you can see in the photo above.
I LOVE this fragrance. As I understand it, Lush doesn’t actually use the fruit yuzu in here. Instead they use a combination of fruits to attain a Yuzu similarity. Regardless of whether there is yuzu fruit in this or not, I love the scent. The cocoa in this is like a light whiff of cocoa. It’s as if i’m smelling a container of powdered cocoa, mixed with the fruity yuzu. It’s wonderful. This and Lord of Misrule are my top fave shower gels/creams from Lush Oxford Street.
In my shower gel rotation it’s yuzu and cocoa that remains a constant presence in my shower, never leaving while I rotate two others, so that I always have three shower gels in my shower. I rotate shower gels often as I have a ridiculous amount of shower gels.
Here’s a video i made showing this shower cream in more detail.
