My newest favorite all-purpose lotion. It's hydrating and not greasy. I feel silky smooth all day. To be totally honest, I can't stand banana flavored or scented things, AT ALL. And I still like this scent.
I like this product so much, I've been considering buying another one so I can split it up into smaller containers and have one in my car, purse, wherever. (:

Pros: The best thing about this lotion is its scent. It has a beautiful, warm, subtle scent, a mixture of vanilla and sandalwood. It also has a lovely texture and absorbs quickly.
Cons: The packaging is not great--a big tub of lotion (definitely not a cream of a body butter) is not ideal--and it's a bit too expensive for lotion, even good lotion.
I received this as a sample and returned after a week to purchase it in the full-size because I loved the scent. Be warned though that the scent is variable (possibly due to the hand-made nature of the products?) and the large tub I purchased was somewhat less scented than the sample I received. Still, it has quickly become one of my favorite LUSH products.

This is my every day moisturiser. I love the light creamy scent reminiscent of a banana smoothie and the fact that it is not overpowering which means you can use perfume.
The trick to moisturising your body and this goes for all moisturisers, is to apply cream while your skin is still warm and damp. Once it is all soaked in, go over your body again with another layer.
You don't need to use too much so a tub is going to last a long time. It is one of Lush's original products and I hope they never stop making it.
I have very dry skin and this keeps my skin moisturised all day.

I usually use Dream Cream, I have acne prone skin (face and body) but I also get very dry skin with painful patches of psoriasis at times. I decided to pick this up after trying it in store and noticing that although it felt very thin and runny initially, it turns into almost an oil on the skin and seemed very moisturizing. I did worry I would break out with continued use though. It's been about 3 months and my skin is so soft and not a single breakout. The redness I had on my arms has significantly been reduced as well. I am loving this more than Dream Cream and I absolutely adore the scent of this which is a huge bonus! I'm not usually a fan of Lush scents, this one is a very mild vanilla with a bit of banana scent, almost like pudding. Would repurchase.

I went into Lush to get a scrub/moisturizer combo to help battle the winter blues.
I ended up grabbing Ocean Salt and Sympathy for the Skin.
I immediately fell in love with this moisturizer's scent - it smells like chocolate and bananas out of the jar but amazingly settles into a vanilla-flan-ish dessert scent - so delicious. After using it on my body for a while I had read somewhere that it works well on the face. I usually have oily blemish prone skin, but because of the intensely harsh winter we are having, I tried it out; to my astonishment it works so SO well on my face. It somehow transforms my dull looking, blotchy and red skin into baby soft pillowy feeling wonderfullness. I really cannot even describe how well it works for my face!
Only downfalls are the packaging - I hate tubs, the price, and if you put a little too much on you get oily! But other than that it is absolutely wonderful.

Tried this body lotion for a few days now and think I'm in love.
Texture: Light and creamy, a bit runny like yogurt, easy to spread, absorbs by the skin quickly. Love!
Scent: I think it smells like cream and cookie ice cream. Love!
Effect: Moisturizes very well without feeling greasy or sticky. Love!
Ingredients: Mostly natural. Love!
Packaging: Jar packing is convenient and easy to use, no waste of product. Love!
Purchase again: Yes.

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
