Feeling restless and out of sorts after working a 16 hour night shift, I decided to give this a go. Instant nirvana! As the saleslady directed, I slathered this on myself prior to hopping in the shower. As soon as this heavenly stuff hit my skin I could feel the stress slip away and my mood lifting as the joyful scent pervaded the bathroom. The act of massaging its smooth texture into my skin soothed me even more. It smells so lovely on the body, more so than while in the pot. I hesitate to try and describe it as other than a sweet, rich rose with a bit of powder/soapiness to round out the scent. I consider this product a miracle of aromatherapy. By the smell alone, it brought me serenity. Although the scent does last slightly on the skin post-shower, I was sad that there was no Turkish Delight cream or lotion to wear afterwards (hint, hint Lush!). I would love to have a bit of that tranquility to wear out of the house. I love everything about this stuff. I LOVE the scent, love how massaging it into one's skin releases the scent, love how the warm water of the shower intensifies the scent and then the relaxing water rinses it away for moisturized, pampered, softly scented skin. It transforms a shower into a luxurious ritual. Worth every penny.
Because I am a sucker for anything "rose" scented, and because I know that Lush, although pricy, uses very natural and high-quality ingredients, I splurged on a 7 oz. tub of the Turkish Delight Body Polish ($30 US). Main ingredients are: roses, almond oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter. The rest are listed here http://www.lushusa.com/shop/products/body/hand-body-creams/turkish-delight
To my surprise, this was not a scrub, Instead, it's whipped butter (like the kind that acccompanies your bread basket in a fancy restaurant). The scent wavers between roses and baby powder - a turnoff for me, but pleasant for some, I guess. The sales associate said to put it on before you get into the shower but I forgot and put it on while in the shower. I was multitasking and also washing my hair, so while my conditioner was marinating, I shut the water off and put this stuff on. I used only a little bit (mostly the stuff stuck to the cap and about a tablespoon from the jar) to cover my whole body (I am 5'2). Then I rinsed. Afterwards, I slathered on some very light body lotion (C.O. Bigelow Rose), sunscreen and headed out.
I didn't think anything of it until the evening when I noticed that the little dry skin bumps that live on my legs and arms had either faded pr disappeared completely. The next day, they were still gone. I have tried everything under God's green earth to accomplish this, with no luck, until now. This is a friggin miracle. Twenty-four hours after using this stuff, my skin looked completely renewed.
LUSH, I am now a believer.
I just bought this the other day because I loooove the smell of rose and this one smells really great.
The lady at the store said to rub it on before showering and then wash it off in the shower. It's supposed to leave your skin moisturized.
I used it and loved the smell. To be honest, I didn't really find my skin was any more moisturized than usual, but it certainly didn't dry out my skin. I did notice my skin seemed a little more "calm" -- I have keratosis pilaris and have issuse with redness on my forearms.
The rose smell DOES linger which is great and the amount they give you in the tub will last a long time.
Apparently, it's been flying off the shelves and I got the last one at the location I went to. Worth a shot, love the smell, but definitely didn't work any major miracles for me.
The price is a little steep at $30 Canadian, but if you have the cash to spare, give it a try.
Turkish Delight smells just like rose water, infact, that's the first ingredient. I'm not really smelling anything else besides rose. But I love the scent of rose water! The substance of the smoothie is almost like a solid that you can push your fingers into and grab some..hence glycerine being the second ingredient. The amount of the smoothie is a generous 7 oz (200 g). When you use it, it does not suds-up, but is more like a thick cream that you just spread around. The scent of roses/rose water lingers on your skin and no filmy residue is left behind. This would be really nice to use before bed...it's very comforting!
