I bought this bottle of Lush’s Flying Fox Shower Gel a while ago. This product is called “Chocho Fujin (Madame Butterfly)” in Japan. Yes, yet another Lush product which is named something totally different in Japan…
What it does:
Share a shower with our Flying Fox to ground and calm you. Our Foxy shower gel has the stunningly sensual scent of jasmine, ylang, cypress and palmarosa. It’s is so relaxing that even the most frantic, frazzled person will relax into a restful mood after a warm shower.
4.15 GBP/100g (UK), $9.95/3.3 oz (US), 900 JPY/100g (Japan), which equals to 6.5 cents/g (UK), 10.6 cents/g (US), 10.7 cents/g (Japan). Even with the current strong Japanese Yen, the price in Japan and the US is almost the same.
This product smells VERY strongly of jasmine. I used a washcloth to apply this, rinsed out the washcloth and hung it up to dry. The washcloth still smelled strongly the next day.
- lathers very well
- not drying, although I needed to use a moisturizer later. This product contains honey, a moisturizing ingredient.
- if you like jasmine scents, this is definitely for you!
- the scent may be overwhelming. I felt that the scent of this shower gel lingered longer than other Lush products I’ve used.
- this product is runnier than shower gels that I’m used to, so be careful of squeezing out too much!
Would I repurchase? maybe. I liked this product even though the scent was incredibly strong. If I ever try all of Lush’s shower gels, it will be on my list of products I’ll think about purchasing again.
Hope this review helped!
