I have never purchased Sympathy for the Skin. I have just used samples that I have received from a LUSH sales associate.
I left my sample sitting on my night stand for about a week after my last LUSH trip, thinking that I would never need this because I was more than satisfied with Dream Cream. Then one night, I decided to give it a go. I wish I wouldn't have... And not for the reason you may think! Now, I almost regret that during that same visit, I picked up another pot of Dream Cream as back up, since my current pot is almost empty.
I love this lotion! I didn't think that it could get any better than Dream Cream, but somehow, Sympathy for the Skin is even better! I love the smell of both lotions, however, I think that I prefer the delicious scent of banana and vanilla that is in Sympathy for the Skin. Also, the sales associate told me that Sympathy might not work for me because it is thicker, but instead, I think that makes it even better! I use it at night, and I find that unlike Dream Cream which takes forever to absorb and leaves a greasy residue for about five minutes, my skin soaks this up almost immediately. I have been using it multiple times a day, and I swear my skin is even softer than when I used Dream Cream regularly!
At the same price as Dream Cream (26.95) I DEFINITELY plan on purchasing once I finish off my stash of Dream Cream and see if this replaces my all time favorite lotion- which I have a feeling, it might!

I really like this lotion. It smells amazing like vanilla. It does have a thinner consistency than most lotions. It is not greasy feeling on the skin and absorbs nicely. I recommend it for summer time use since it is not very heavy.. It feels so cool to the touch when you first apply it. Very nice product from lush.

i could eat this! i was so excited to try this body cream, its supposed to smell like bananas and vanilla but i couldn't really smell any banana which i was quite happy about as its not my favourite smell. i think it just smells of vanilla and yoghurt which is lovely. the consistency is perfect on my skin as its not very dry but still needs a little something. after i apply this, my skin seems radiant and glowing and it makes it so soft, especially good for after shaving. you can only get it in a large tub so i was kind of hesitant, as its not cheap but after using it, i'm so glad i have lots! after you apply, it sinks in after about 10 minutes which is perfect for me

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.
