Lush Dream Cream
Advantages: Great on your skin
I have to start this off by saying: I love Lush products. What I don't love is their prices.
Because of that, for the longest time, I stuck to buying things like bath bombs and bubble bath bars only, because yeah, they were expensive, but not as expensive as the shampoos, creams etc I could buy elsewhere for much cheaper and that would do just as good of a job -- and, I know you can buy bath bombs elsewhere too, but I've never found any I like as much.
Then, somehow, I started to branch out, some perfume here, a shampoo bar there, until the day I bought a tub of Dream Cream, that cost more than I ever thought I'd pay for moisturising cream, and never went back.
As of now Dream Cream costs £10:95 for 240g. The cream itself comes in a sturdy screw top black coloured tub, with all writing in white, meaning any info can be easily read. ( Addition info, if you save five of these black tubs, from any Lush product, you can exchange them for a free fresh face mask )
The tub has a label on the back showing ingredients, the main one of which is oat milk. Which, as Lush states on the label, is made by simmering oatmeal in water to produce a rich oat milk which is effective at calming and soothing the skin.
The cream itself is thick and easily adsorbed into the skin. While there is a scent, I don't find it overpowering at all, though it would be probably best to use at night, or else well before going out. While the front of the Dream Cream tub says it's a hand and body lotion, to me, it's too thick to be called a lotion, plus, I use it as a moisturiser for my face, too.
So, does it work? For me the answer is a resounding yes. I have sensitive skin on my face, and while it's not supposed to be a facial moisturiser, Dream Cream keeps my skin feeling soft, and best of all, keeps down any redness. It's also fantastic for use on the body. Full disclosure, I'm too cheap to use Dream Cream on my whole body, but I do use it on my lower legs, which are very dry, and my arms.
A little of this goes a long way, which soothes my cost conscious side as well as my skin. I've had my tub of Dream Cream since Christmas, and there's still well over half the tub left.
Lush says this is their number one product, and that doesn't surprise me. I recommend for sure.
Summary: An excellent product I like a lot.
