To some, the scent may not be the greatest. Personally, I don't mind it. The scent starts off lwith a cocoa butter scent when you open the pot, then turns floral after application. It's a clean and girly scent but fades pretty fast. Now that the scent is out of the way, I have to start raving about this body lotion. It isn't easy for me to find a body lotion or cream that I really do like. Usually they are too liquidy or too heavy. Charity Pot has just the right consistency. Not a liquid but it is a nice creamy consistency. It isn't one of those dense creams either--it's nice and "whipped". It dissappates well too without leaving that greasy film on your skin. Absorbs is actually the better word to use. Moisterizes beautifully. I'll tell you, this really is great stuff. I'm so lucky that "Santa" left it in my stocking or I would have never have tried this. It'll be a keeper during these cold winter months--ugh..this severe weather is horrible on my skin, but I'm now confident I'll have baby-butt soft skin with this Charity Pot. Another plus is that all proceeds from this go to charity--AND when the empty pot is returned, Lush will give me a free face mask. How could you not love that????
If you have dry skin, please do yourself a favor and at least try this. Even if you are not a fan of the scent of cocoa butter--it won't last. Really. It won't--but your skin will thank you! I thank you for reading this review!
i personally adore this. when i read some of the negative reviews on here, i genuinely wondered if there was another Charity Pot that i didn't know about!
the minute me and my friend smelt this we both said 'Turkish Delight!' it smells EXACTLY like the chocolate-covered turkish delight, the one that comes in a purple wrapper. (it's called fry's turkish delight). for those of you who aren't familiar with that; this basically smells like chocolate, with a hint of something else - spicy, sugary fruitiness. just, YUM!
it applies nicely, and really performs when it comes to softening my skin and preserving the scent on my skin also.
this to me, is very cosy and indulgent. and it makes me very happy!
This product smells terrible. THis is not something you want to put on before a date because it will repell your man. This product is about $25 for 8 ounces and I honestly feel like the body shop, and jergens lotions moisturize better than this one did.
Okay I HATED this product because of ....
-the inconvenient packaging
-the disgusting scent (so strong and gross !Smells like lavender really strongly with something disgusting blended in......!)
other than that it's and okay moistuizer and I think it's great that lush does this charity thing,but this bodylotion itself is just horrible!
After reading the reviews on this product, its strange how the scent of this could be intepreted so differently by different people. It too smell completely different to me as i go through my sample pot. At first wiff, it smell of cardboard... strange huh. It put me off so much i left it sitting on my table until i decided to use it up be done with it (I got the trial size then and have since purchased the full size) Then as i continue using it, it smells floral, a very lovely floral.
This is the third lotion i've tried from Lush and i do like it. It has a very liquidy consistency, you'll spill it if not careful. It can feel oily so a little goes a long way. Lush's lotions feels very different when compared to conventional lotions - conventional lotions contain silicon and mineral oil, silicon makes your skin feel silky smooth,but in reality, it just stays on the surface of your skin, prevents moisture loss. Lush lotions don't feel silky as they do not contain silicon (correct me if i'm wrong). But this is moisturizing for my very dry skin.
My favourite is still Dream Cream, this is nice too. I love the scent of this lotion, always opening the pot just to smell it.
I actually quite like this cream. It's not my favourite but I'm still pleased with it. I carry the small $5 pot in my purse and use it as a hand cream while at work. I find the scent pleasing. It mostly smells of almonds and coco butter, and I also like the texture, not too heavy, not too greasy. Easy to apply and absorbs nicely. I will continue to buy.
I was given this as a gift, and I'm not impressed. It's not doing as good a job as other moisturizers, I find it very runny, and the SMELL is ugh.. overpowering. Definitely will not repurchase.
I bought a small sampler of this for $5.00 CDN at the checkout as the sales clerk recommended it. I liked the idea that 100% of the proceeds went towards helping a charity (in this case, Animal Peace).
The scent is hard to pin down: I can detect the cocoa butter because it does have a chocolate type scent to it. The consistency is smooth and whipped and spreads very well - a little goes a long way! It is very, very effective because of the natural butters and oils. I don't know if I would purchase the larger pot because the scent isn't one that I might want to "bathe" myself in.
For the $5...a worthy investment. It is also good to note that in the range of "potted" items from Lush you can purchase, this is considerably cheaper and goes toward the recycle program: five pots for one face mask :)
Very moisturizing, love the unique scent, doesn't leave a greasy residue behind.
I bought the smaller size of this. It is a basic scent. Not as yummy as others, but that is why I bought it. I work in a prison and I have found that the boys get a little excited when I put on hand lotion. It doesn't matter the scent, even shea butter can send them into a tizzy. I am also limited to a certain size bottle, so trying to find unscented handlotions that work is tough. Some are too greasy, the good stuff is often too big a bottle, etc. This stuff is effective so far.
