Dreamy Cream with LUSH

14 Aug

Do you remember your dreams?  I usually do after I first wake up, but after I get up and begin the day, they somehow disappear from my memory.  Although, there are a handful of dreams that I remember that I had when I was a kid.  How is that possible?  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are walking around in my head, messing with my subconcious…

Well, Inception talk aside, lets talk about a dream what I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.  

It’s the LUSH Dream Cream Body Lotion.

Website description:  Our number one, best-selling product of all time, Dream Cream contains every ingredient nature makes for soothing sore skin. One our proudest product achievements ever, we love this body lotion because it makes people happy. It transforms suffering bodies into states of peace with our calming blend of oat milk, lavender and chamomile to care for irritations, reduce redness, and banish blotches. Olive oil and cocoa butter are perfectly suited and incredibly effective for dry or chapped skin, and especially gentle for even the most sensitive types. Do your skin a favor, treat it right with Dream Cream.

More from website:

  • Worldwide best-seller: We’re incredibly proud of Dream Cream and its ability to make sore skin happy once again.
  • Does a body good: When oats infuse with water, they create soothing milk, used for centuries to calm the skin.
  • Fantastically effective florals: Rose and lavender essential oils are incredibly calming for easily irritated skin.

My thoughts:

Packaging:  Black pot with twist off lid.  It measures 3.5in tall and 3in wide, the circumference is 8.5in.  I appreciate it’s simplicity, but I hate that I have to dip my hand into the pot to use it.  It also makes it easy to overuse the product.

Scent:  LUSH’s scents are hard to describe, but I’ll do my best:  This smells like tea tree oil wearing old lady perfume.  To be fair, a lot of people don’t mind the scent, in fact some people love it.  Me?  It gives me a headache.  Luckily, the scent is not detectable after 10 minutes of application.

Texture:  A thick lotion.  I wouldn’t describe it as a cream, because that’s getting more into “body butter” type of products.  This is definitely a lotion, but on the thicker side.  It glides onto the skin and soaks in within 10 minutes.  Also, a little bit goes a long way!  It you overuse the product, it will take longer to soak in so you’ll be left feeling a little greasy for awhile.

Usage:  I like to slather on all over post-shower!  Leaves muh skin soft and smooth as a smoothie!

Rant:  LUSH includes these stickers on all of their products.  It is a cartoon photo of who actually mixed the product you are using.  I get it; it’s handmade, you’re trying to be more personal with the consumer.  However, I wish they would take the time, effort, and money they spend on these stickers on investing in better packaging.  I don’t really care who made my product, I care about how effective it is.  Rant over.

Who would like this:  Really, anyone who likes lotion.

Who wouldn’t like this:  Someone with no skin issues (like eczema) who does not like to spend a lot of $ on a product.


It’s not a miracle worker for me,  but I like it.  BUT!  BUT BUT BUT, LUSH says in it’s description that it’s for “suffering bodies.”  I’m pretty fortunate in the fact that the skin on my body is pretty normal; I apply lotion post-shower and that’s about it.  No eczema, dry patches, red bumps, etc.  Someone with those issues may feel differently about the product.  However, as someone with normal, non-troublesome skin, it’s nice but there are less expensive products that do the same thing (and smell better).

Glitter Rating:  3.5 / 5

The LUSH Dream Cream is $25.95 for 8.4oz.  It is available at any LUSH store or here online (US website).

Have you guys tried Dream Cream?  What did you think of it?
