Lush Body Lotion Trio Review

I took all these photo's months ago, not long after I received my boxing-day-sales purchases from Lush - the products split up nicely into little groups, as I got three shower gels, three body moisturisers, and three soaps among my many gift set products.

Lush Dream Cream Celebrate Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

I initially intended to get round to posting the three reviews as part of a Lush-trio mini-series soon after, but only finally getting round to posting about the shower gels a couple of weeks ago, and despite my hopes to follow it shortly with this one it's (rather obviously) taken 'til now. A soap review seems to be a far-off dream, if it materialises at all (which I kinda feel it should just because I've taken photos, even if I'm not convinced there's any point!).

Anyway, I'm rambling, I'm such a rambler - here's some Lush stuff!

hand and body lotion for exzema

Dream Cream - I read on the tub that this is Lush's No One product, so obviously had fairly high expectations. This pretty much sounds like the ultimate skin-soother, with lots of lovely calming ingredients like oat milk, rose water and chamomile oil. I've heard that it's excellent on eczema but can't speak with authority on that, having never suffered from it. I'm guessing the same principles might apply to skin that's been out in the sun too long too? Not that I recommend staying out too long in the sun of course, protect yourself people!
Without either of those problems, it's still a cracking body lotion that keeps me super moisturised. It's never going to be one of my very favourite - not having sensitive skin issues I tend to prefer something a little more strongly fragranced - but I imagine to those with skin concerns this could be a godsend!


wash off body lotion

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner has the most amazing smell! I know the scent of roses isn't to everyone tastes, but I'm nuts about it I wanted to love this skin conditioner. Yep, skin conditioner, rather than moisturiser. Why? Because instead of covering yourself in this when you are all finished in the bath/shower, you use it during - applying to wet skin then rinsing off just like you would do with conditioner for your hair. I just.... don't know what the point is. I don't know if I'm just getting it wrong, but it doesn't seem any easier than just moisturising normally after a shower, and it seems a real shame to just rinse such a nice (and not cheap) product away. I know that's what it's designed for but it just feels like my skin isn't going to get the same level of benefits from something I'm essentially just washing off before it has chance to do anything (though to be fair, this does seem to work!). Since I've decided it's way too nice to just rinse away I've been using it as a 'normal' body cream, which moisturises loads and smells great so I'm more than happy to keep using it this way!

Sadly, Celebrate isn't available all year round, being a limited edition product to help us 'celebrate' the festive period - but hopefully it'll be back this year as this is gorgeous! It has a really cheery orange scent, with a 'splash of cognac to get you in the festive mood' and it's the one out of all of them that most makes me want to sniff at my arms for the rest of the day! It really is spot on for the festive season so I'll use up Ro's over the rosy summer and hopefully smell of this again come Christmastime!
Just having looked on the webpage now, I see there's still loads of body creams made by Lush that I haven't tried yet! And recommendations for me?
