Very effective, soothing cream. Lightly lavender scented.
on July 11, 2016
I love Lush products, and Dream Cream is an old favorite of mine that I started to use again. The cream itself is wonderful, but I wanted to subtract a star in my review because the tub wasn't properly wrapped to withstand the rigors of mailing. It was surrounded in bubble wrap on the sides but not the top or bottom, so some of the lotion had leaked out and dried on the bubble wrap in transit. It made the package messy to open, and since it's not exactly cheap, I wasn't thrilled about wasting the lotion either.
I only ordered from Amazon because I had a big order coming, and it seemed easier than placing a separate order with Lush. But it seems that products that come directly from Lush are better packaged. I ordered two other products direct from Lush this spring that come in the identical black Lush tubs, and they were better protected.
With regard to the cream itself, it smells like lavender (just like Angels on Bare Skin, if you've ever tried that), which some people don't like but I find very soothing. I usually shower at night, so it's the perfect scent to lull you to sleep. The moisturizing lasts all day, and a little goes a long way. I use it on my face as well as my body, even though it's technically a body lotion, after seeing people talking about doing that on the Lush site. I've been very itchy lately (allergies? salt by the sea? something from the dogs? laundry soap?), and Dream Cream seems to really quell that. Five stars for me for the cream, but it should be better protected given the price.
