I've finally come to the conclusion to never ever buy another face product from Lush, because their body/bath products are what they're best at doing. Oh my goodness I wanted to hate this because of the ridiculous price, but I love it! First of all, I love banana anything, and this smells like banana pudding but it's not overpowering. Most importantly, the consistency is the perfect balance between cream and liquid. It moisturizes really well and sinks in pretty quickly but still leaves a nice sheen. I only wear this at night before I go to bed as I hate moisturizer during the day. I really recommend this, and will for sure be repurchasing!
This cream smells so good, its like vanilla-y and sweet and actually not very banana-y, which is not what i expected. The cream itself is very nice to apply and leaves my skin lovely and soft. its the kind of consistency that would make more sense to put in a pump bottle than a tub but i can still get to the product so no major complaints in that respect. the only real thing i can fault about it is the gross black flakes (which i can only assume is vanilla bean) aren't that pretty smeared all over your body, although once its all soaked in i suppose they fall off or something because i never notice the bits on me during the day. the man who sold me this told me that the high potassium content from the bananas in the cream helps improve blood vessels near the skin - i cant really attest to this since i wouldn't know what to look for to see a difference but if its a concern for you maybe try this out? the tub is pretty small and its pricey, but i just checked and you get just about as much per $ as the large tubs of the body shop body butters (which in my opinion are not as nice - the ones ive tried just make my skin glossy and smell almost fake).
if you're tossing up between sympathy for skin and a body shop cream i would go this any day.
Lovely body lotion!
To me, this smells like cupcake frosting. yummy! I absolutely love the smell!
And the smell lingers plus it's super moisturizing.
Definitely gonna repurchase.
This is by far my favourite lotion from lush!!!!! it smells amazing like a banana vanilla custard so delightful! it is also moisturizing for a thin consistancy lotion i believe this is for dry skin and it definatly is a good lotion for both summer and winter it is light yet moisturizing, if you are sensitive to scents you will like this it goes on really soft and you can smell a hint of vanilla cream on you're body it is really delicate and beautiful! i love it and probably wear it the most out of any lotion i have besides mango from the body shop i just can't help it! it smells delicious and it isn't over powering and can be worn at any time!!!!! Lush came up with a really great lotion for everyone!
I like everything about this body lotion. It smells really nice, and it does a great job at nourishing and softening the skin. The lotion rubs in like a dream and doesn't feel sticky. It leaves my skin feeling super soft for 24 hours easily.
This is good stuff. Quality ingredients, makes my skin soo soft! I love both this and dream cream, i find they perform about the same. So if you like the effects of dream cream but not the scent (personally it doesn't bother me but I know some hate it), give this guy a try. I find that it smells very mildly like vanilla pudding - not strong or overly banana-ey at all. It is a little greasy but sinks in quickly enough.
Sympathy for the Skin has an AMAZING smell. The perfect mix of vanilla/cocoa and bananas. My legs are very dry, especially during the winter, and this lotion is perfect for it! Usually lotion just sits on my skin and doesn't really DO anything, but this lotion quickly absorbs and locks in the moisture. I also put it on my arms and elbows, and just love love love to smell my arms all day. A very great product!!
HG quality. Smells very nice but not overwhelming at all (vanilla/chocolate scent to me, absolutely no banana smell). Easy to spread and you only need a tiny amount, soaks in nicely, and doesn't leave a weird residue or heavy feeling like some lotions. Jar packaging is cute but kind of annoying and unsanitary. Yes, this is expensive ($26) but you use such a small amount that it will last a long time. Love this and will definately repurchase when I run out. It has replaced ALL my body lotions.
I like this product but not for the price. I have been using this moisturizer every day for over a month now.
- smells devine like vanilla and smell lingers all day
- absorbs quickly, very light
- stops most of my skin drying out in the winter
- don't like the speckles of who-knows-what that float in the cream
- i have really dry knees and elbows. they remain dry even with daily use.
- overall condition of my skin hasn't changed/improved with cream
i have keratosis pilaris and just general unevenness in the skin on my legs. it looks the same today in terms of red marks as it did over a month ago only less dry. i feel like i could get something better that does more to benefit my skin particularly the areas that remain dry.
i will finish the jar but i wont be repurchasing.
I really liked this light body moisturising lotion. Smells nice and light. This really goes nicely after using the butterball bath ballistic as the scents compliment one and other. The only thing I don't like is the small black particles (I think its the vanilla pods) in the lotion which stick to my skin as it kind of looks like dirt!
