Lush - Lord of Misrule shower cream, review

Lord of Misrule is a green shower cream by Lush with a distinctive, unusual scent. it's my first Lush bubble bath., thus I can’t compare it with any other shower cream from the British brand but I'm loving it.
How Lush describes it: “A feast for the senses! Get down and earthy with this mischievous, herbal blend of patchouli, peppercorn and black pepper with an intriguing fair trade vanilla sweetness... You won't be the fool after washing with this.”

Its formula is moisturizing and contains fine silver and ton sur ton shimmer, a sparkle that winks from the bottle; its sage green foam puts me in a good mood, a pleasant feeling that follows the initial amazement.
Do you remember it was among Halloween limited edition products which remained till Christmas, right?

Unlike its bath bomb version, it’s enriched with organic wheatgerm oil, the key ingredient for hydration; In fact, immediately after rinsing it off my skin feels and appears soft and silky smooth.
The fragrance, in addition to its colour, it’s its “trademark”: slightly woody, warm, spicy yet sweet.
The sweet vanilla note, always fair-trade , and stinging black pepper and its infusion are intriguing and stimulate the senses; these two aromatic notes, despite different, are perfect together.
The scent remains on my skin for a whole day and it’s especially sweet but not overwhelming.

it gently cleanses;
while leaving skin hydrated;
it has a particular and pleasant aroma;
it’s cruelty-free

it’s a limited edition

I’m not a fanatic and I don’t think “everything must be organic or nothing”, but I believe that caring about the quality and where or how an ingredient comes is important for a cosmetic brand image, this is the “vanilla case” which is derived exclusively from the fair trade markets.
Do I recommend Lord of Misrule? In my opinion, the regular price is high, but I still consider it a product to be taken into serious consideration because it’s a seasonal item.
It’s so peculiar and has no easy dupe, so it’s something to grab if the occasion occurs.
