Lush Dream Cream ReviewThursday, September 05, 2013
Here is a description from their website:
"OUR MOST GENTLE CREAM FOR TROUBLED, SENSITIVE SKIN
I always loved the name of this lotion, but did not make a plan to purchase it, as I was already so happy with my Sympathy for the Skin. I also have a charity pot to use up.
When I opened the tub and smoothed some onto my skin, I was immediately impressed by the soft, herbal fragrance. It reminds me of Angels on Bare Skin, but somehow nicer. I LOVE the scent of Angels, and I think that these two products remind me of one another because they both contain tea tree, lavender, chamomile, rose, and benzoin.
Here is the list of Dream Cream's ingredients:
Oat Milk (Avena sativa) , Rose Water (Rosa centifolia) , Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea) , Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) , Glycerine , Stearic Acid , Triethanolamine , Tincture of Benzoin (Styrax benzoin) , Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia) ,Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla) , Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) , Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida) ,Cetearyl Alcohol , *Geraniol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Fragrance ,Methylparaben , Propylparaben
The texture of Dream Cream is absolutely lovely! It is a thicker and more rich lotion than Sympathy, and it moisturised my skin very well. While it does leave a greasy feel initially, it does sink in after a while (Lush suggests using one of their dusting powders (even the Coconut deodorant powder!) over freshly moisturised skin, to help make it feel less greasy while the lotion continues to make your skin all lovely! :D). I have tried it both with and without powder, and found it to moisturise both ways.
While I am sure that I would have gotten around to trying this cream eventually, it was never high on my To Try list. I am so thankful that I got this little pot, because how wrong I was for wanting to wait!! This is now a favourite of mine (another one? Lush, you will take over all of the bath and body products I use!), and I definitely can see myself buying a pot in the future. :)
While I have used both Sympathy for the Skin and Charity Pot on my hands (which are by far the driest part of my body), Dream Cream blows the skin soothing and moisturising capabilities of the others clear out of the water (and that is saying a lot, since I really, really, really love Sympathy!!).
Thank you Lush for creating yet another fabulous product!! :D
