Review: Lush Prince Charming Shower Cream

Hello! Today's post is a little review (or a collection of my ramble-y thoughts) on Lush's Prince Charming shower creme from their 2016 Valentine's Day collection. Although I'm a little late in posting this as Valentine's Day was almost a week ago now, this product was still available on Lush's website when I checked earlier today so you should still be snap one up one of these for yourself!

Firstly, this smells AMAZING. I'm terrible at describing scents but the ingredients include marshmallow root, vanilla and pomegranate juice which explains it's gorgeous, sweet scent. Additionally although it's sweet it's not sickly at all, so if you're not a fan of Lush's Christmas collection shower gel, Snow Fairy, you might have better luck with this one!

The consistency of Prince Charming is also so lovely and thick. It lathers up really well so I find you only need to use a tiny bit each time so although I only managed to get my mitts on a small 100g bottle, I have a feeling it will be last me a long time! However as it's called a shower 'creme' I was hoping this would feel a bit more soft and luxurious on my skin but to me it feels just the same as a shower gel which was a bit disappointing.

Another bonus however is the gorgeous colour. As you can see from the pictures above it's a beautiful bright pink which keeps its colour even when on your skin, unlike other shower gels, which gives it an extra magical quality. A bit of a warning to people with shower curtains though - I've found that it tends to leave the floor of our shower cubicle a bit pink after I've had a wash so if you have a shower curtain proceed with caution as I feel this might try to give your curtain a bit of a pink-hue!

Overall although I found the 'cream' name to be a little misleading, this is such a gorgeous-smelling and long-lasting product which are two of the main things I look for in a shower gel so I will definitely be re-purchasing Prince Charming next year. Plus being a Disney blogger I've obviously got to give this at least 10 bonus points for it's amazing Disney name!

Hope you're having a laaavely Saturday!

Disney Purchases - January 2016

From a Lush haul to a Disney haul... Can you tell my Student Finance has been burning a hole in my wallet?! Most of this came from a Disney Store order - I wanted to get Rocket and Groot from the new Guardians of the Galaxy Tsum Tsum collection, and I kept spotting the odd thing here and there to add to my basket,  and before long what should have cost me £6 turned into over £30! Oops!
DISNEY MOVIE COLLECTION BOOK: SLEEPING BEAUTY, TESCO DIRECT - £2
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS BB-8 MUG, THE DISNEY STORE - £9.95
BB-8 FUNKO POP FIGURE - GIFT
INSIDE OUT JOURNAL, THE DISNEY STORE - £3.88
ROCKET MINI TSUM TSUM - £3
GROOT MINI TSUM TSUM - £3
ALICE IN WONDERLAND RECORD COVER ARTWORK MUG, THE DISNEY STORE - £8.95
Firstly I bought this gorgeous Disney Movie Collection Sleeping Beauty book from Tesco. I missed when these range of books were on offer last year and most of them are a bit pricey now so I've not been able to justify buying them before now but strangely this particular one was only £2 so I couldn't resist! I've only had a quick flick through so far but the artwork is absolutely gorgeous so I'm looking forward to getting properly stuck into it.

As well as the new Rocket and Groot mini Tsums from the Disney Store (how adorable is Rocket?!) I also picked up two new mugs to add to my ever-growing mug collection and this Inside Out notebook which was in the sale. I'd been stalking the 'New In' section of the Disney Store for weeks looking for this BB-8 mug and luckily he appeared the day I was making an order anyway! I'd also been on the lookout for an Alice In Wonderland mug to add to my collection, I'm obsessed with the 1951 Disney film, and as soon as I spotted this one with it's vintage record artwork I knew it was the one!

As I've mentioned before, I've also got a small Funko Pop collection going on and the boyfriend kindly surprised me this month by ordering me a BB-8 Pop to cheer me up from my exam revision! He'd been on my wishlist ever since I first saw The Force Awakens and I'm so pleased to finally own him - he's just too cute!
BEN SILVER NECKLACE, ALICE VITRUM - £5
And finally, I forgot to add this in the pictures above but I also bought this AMAZING necklace from Alice Vitrum on Etsy this month. If you follow me on Twitter you've probably guessed that I have a bit of a crush on Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens (#BenIsBae) so when I came across this necklace I obviously had to add it to my increasing Kylo collection! Charlotte also makes a range of other lovely Disney and pop culture necklaces so her shop's definitely worth checking out.
