LUSH DREAM CREAM REVIEW




Hi lovelies! Recently I posted a haul post with lots of Lush goodies my amazing sister bought for me, including this (not so) little pot of absolute perfection. I posted my first impressions in that post, but as I've had a bit more time to play with this, I thought I'd do a full review on it as I've been absolutely obsessed with it these past couple of weeks. So, if you live in the UK, you'll know that we've had some pretty crappy weather lately, strong winds, heavy rain and icy cold temperatures do not do much for my poor skin. And by not much, I mean wreak havoc. I often get those little dry patches and bumps on the back of my arms and while I know they're quite common (and mine aren't too bad), they still annoy me. A lot. So, knowing this, my sister included 'Dream Cream' in my box of treats.

I'd heard a lot about Dream Cream before and knew it was supposed to be amazing for dry, sensitive skin. But I'd only ever had the tiniest sample, which I used twice, then lost. So while I knew it was good, I didn't really know if it had much of an effect with continued use. When I opened this, I was amazed with how much product you got. It's actually quite a thin consistency, which initially, made me slightly skeptical as to how well it would work. Generally, products for super dry skin are more buttery and thick so I was a bit confused by the more thinner lotion in this little tub. However, any doubts were thrown out of the window when I actually used this. You need a tiny amount to cover your arms and legs and it melts into the skin beautifully, without leaving you with a stick residue. The pot says to use generously, but I'm assuming that's a bit of a 'buy more!' trick, as I find a small amount is more than enough.

The scent of this is a little odd, it's not really perfumed in anyway, to me, it smells slightly like rosewater mixed with playdoh. Strange, but if you've smelt this you'll know what I mean (or think I'm insane). It's featured ingredient is Oatmilk, so maybe that has something to do with the scent, who knows! It's not an offensive scent, but not the prettiest either, so because of this, I tend to use it at night before bed. This works out well anyway as it means it has more time to really soak into the skin. As I mentioned before, you apply a small amount, enough to cover your arms and legs, then it soaks in super quickly, no waiting around to dry here! After just a few uses, this made my skin feel softer, smoother and completely desensitized, which is great, as my skin starts to get horribly sensitive in this rubbish weather. Putting in onto sore or sensitive skin is like an instant relief, it's cooling and calming and after just a few uses, you will definitely notice the difference in your skin. The big question for me though, was will it get rid of those irritating bumps? The answer? Yes! Finally, something that actually completely works! It doesn't just reduce them, but with continued use, actually totally got rid of them. Hurrah!

So, if like me, you suffer from sore, sensitive, sad skin in the winter months (or any time of year!), I'd thoroughly recommend this, it has been a total lifesaver for me.

What are some of your skin saviors in the winter? I'd love to know!
