I should have written a review on this one ages ago but for some reason I kept forgetting about it even though it’s an essential on my skin-care routine. Though it’s described as a hand and body lotion I also use it on my face from time to time.
“A soothing and cooling cream that is designed to go on even the most sensitive and easily upset skins”
I still use my Enzymion face cream everyday but in the winter I sometimes need a heavier cream to protect my skin so I use this one probably every other day on my cheeks, corner of my eyes and forehead where my skin needs a little more protection.
I had been using the Manuka Honey Rescue cream for my winter cream but since I’ve finished that one this one has replaced it as a firm favorite. Oh and it’s fantastic for calming down razor burns!
It’s not the most affordable of the Lush creams but I love it! It comes in a HUGE pot and I’m nowhere near half way through it and I’ve had it for about 4 months now. That’s party because I’m a bit of a miser with my application but it really is a decent amount of product too.
When I get really stressed my skin gets what I suppose is a bit of a mild form of eczema all over my cheeks and my face puffs up like a balloon, get’s SO itch and red (not a nice image I know) but stress really messes me up! Especially my skin. When that happens this and Embryolisse is so far the only thing I have found that I can put on my skin and calm it down.
Product tip: If you don’t exfoliate this product wont sink in and will just sit on the surface of your skin
It does contain Methylparaben and Propylparaben which is disappointing. But considering it contains oat milk which spoils very easily I can understand why they would include them, otherwise the cream would go off in a week and for £10 a pot you don’t really want it to spoil before you can finish it.
The smell of this is very…oaty. You will either like it or hate it. The texture is creamy/oily, at first it can feel a bit heavy and then after a minute or two it sinks into your skin leaving it feeling moisturised and plump.
One thing I will say is make sure you’re not allergic to any of the essential oils in this product if you’re getting this for easily irritated eczma prone skin. Some people like myself are fine with it, but for others it can cause a nasty reaction.
You can get this in a Lush store or online
