Looking for an extra boost in the shower to wake you up? How about a caffeinated shower?
You read that right. I had to do a double–take myself when I read about this in an airplane magazine. It’s called Shower Shock (aptly titled) and the product claims to contain approximately 12 servings (yes, that’d be 12 showers) per 4-ounce bar.
The hilarious part of the sales pitch: 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving, which is the equivalent of two mugs of coffee. According to the product label, caffeine can be absorbed through the skin and for maximum effect, “build up a good Shower Shock lather across your entire body before rinsing!”
Is this a joke? No, I don’t think so, at $6.99 per bar. But how true is it? Can you really get a jolt from caffeinated soap?
