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.
The smell = UGH. That's all I'm going to say.
I've never been a fan of LUSH products but every year I cash in on the holiday sales. I received a small pot of this and I have to say it is a great lotion.
I put in on right out of the shower (sparingly) and it sinks right in and leaves a great "lush type" smell. Bonus that the funds for this product go to charity.
The ingredients are slightly questionable if you're looking for a true natural product.
One of the better LUSH products. I'd repurchase.
I personally find this lotion to be an awesome moisturizer for my hands. It really gets deep down in your skin and makes them soft for a long period of time. However, it takes forever to sink in. On the topic of scent, when I first put it on, I find it pretty refreshing. But it lingers. And not in a good way. After an hour or two I just feel like I'm going to puke because the scent is so strong. Why is it with LUSH products that the scents that you want to last don't and the scents that you don't want to last do?
I do like that some of the proceeds from the purchase of this lotion go to a charity (mine happened to go to a foundation that helps my favorite type of bears! which was a plus). However I'd rather just donate myself than buy this lotion. Thank goodness I only got a sample size.
The scent is distinctive, but I love it! It doesn't smell medicinal to me, just spicy and chocolatey. The lotion itself is very moisturising despite its thin texture, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. A small amount goes a very long way, too. I love how my skin feels when I've been using this product.
ive only had this a few days and i got the small trial size and atm im not liking it it sorta smells like cocoa buttery and chocolaty mixed with washing up liquid which i just dont like plus it feels a little greasy when i apply it although it doesn sink into my skin quickly so atm i wouldnt get this again based on the awful smell
This is an ok moisturizer, just a tad geasy but my main reason for not liking this is because the smell is TERRIBLE! I hate it! You will like the smell if you like a buttery, cocoa smell because that is what it smells like. The main reason that I bought it was to elimiate parabens from my body care items, however I was exteremly disappointed to see that this product DOES contain them. It is such a waste of over $25.00. And you don't get a whole lot for that price either, so in a way I am glad that I don't like it as I couldn't see spending that much on a lotion.
