Product Review: Lush’s Flying Fox Shower Gel

by Bionic Beauty on 19.Feb.2008 · 6 comments

One of the more popular body and shower gels from Lush Cosmetics, Flying Fox is a blend of herbals, honey and jasmine to calm you, ignite “desire” (giggle), and is supposed to help with PMS.

LUSH Bath & Shower Product: Flying Fox Shower Gel (body wash, body cleanser, body shampoo)

A little goes a quite a long way with this body wash and it foams up quickly. The scent is syrupy and thick and is more pleasant on your skin after the shower than during. I found it a bit overwhelming while swimming in the scent during a steamy shower. The gel’s formula did not react with my skin or cause any breakouts. However, I cannot really attest to the claims of PMS assistance (and my hubby didn’t care for the scent too much so it didn’t attract him. 😉 ).

Lush’s Flying Fox Shower Gel is available from their website for $17.45 for a 8.4 oz bottle. (Isn’t that a little pricey?)

Ingredients: Honey (Mel), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Perfume, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Palmarossa Oil (Cymbopogan martini), Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

Yay! It’s under $20, so I can buy some! I love Lush – particularly the names of their stuff.

The names are great, and yep, it’s under $20. 🙂 I actually thought of you when I was reviewing the product. Let me know what Lush products you guys like. I’ve yet to find one that absolutely “wows” me, so I’m open to suggestions on things to try!

Shower gel to help with PMS – what a claim! I haven’t tried any of Lush’s products but I do remember wanting to try something for smelly feet (for the boyfriend, of course!)

Oh, I love most of Lush’s products! I can’t say enough good things about Buffy. If you haven’t tried it yet, it may be that one Lush product that makes you fall in love. It’s a solid bar that you use in the shower for exfoliation and moisturizing. It’s incredible!

Lilan, If you want to try them, I would suggest a small gift box type package. That’s what I purchased and it gave me a good overview. I’m not sold on the fuss, really. Their soaps are quite overpriced and only last about a week. I probably would’ve like Flying Fox body wash better if the scent wasn’t SO overpowering.

M. Thanks for the recommendation! I will certainly try Buffy out. I would love to enjoy the Lush products- so I’m always open to new items in their line that I might like. Thanks again!
