LUSH Dream Cream Product Review
A week or so ago, someone on ABB posted a link about LUSH products being on sale. Now I don’t know if many of you have heard of this line, but it’s a line of natural products with super cool scents and they’re known for their bath fizzys. People who do use them are hard core fans…almost how a bunch of us are to MAC. I only knew about this store because I went in there once on a trip to Boston with my friend Imani-she was one of the obsessed fans. I didn’t think much of it until I was googling about good moisturizers. Back in the day I had really bad acne…you can’t tell now but I went through years of dermatologists and went on the really strong drug Accutane twice! I think all those years has made my skin really dry and sensitive. In particular, my neck is off the chain! It gets really dry and itchy and even has a little dry patch that kind of looks like a hicky! It’s so embarrassing when I get called on it, but it’s been there for like 3 months so come on now…it’s definitely not a hicky. I always buy thick cream moisturizers in a jar to fight my battle against the itchy scaley monster that’s on my neck, but I have to reapply throughout the day to keep it at bay. So I’ve been on the search for a cure.
Anyhow, through my internet research I found a product called Dream Cream by LUSH. I thought this was a coincidence because I had just seen the post on ABB which had just rekindled my memory of this line. It’s fate I tell you! The reviews I read on it were really great…people with eczema even used it and they said it worked wonders. Now, I’m a skeptic when it comes to products…usually unless they have some dermatologists’ seal of approval and some medical terminology on the packaging I think it’s Foo Foo. The reviews really won me over though…the product is made from really natural ingredients so I was like, what the heck! I looked online at the store locator and saw they had one in the Orlando airport…and I said to myself… “how convenient! I’m flying down to Orlando to visit my parents for Christmas!” So I meant to pick it up down there but I didn’t have time. Luckily my roomie who’s also from Orlando flew back a day later and she was actually on time to the airport, unlike me, and she picked it up for me! Isn’t she a sweetheart?
The product is $23, kinda expensive right (but it's only $20.95 online...I think the airport bumped up prices)? But it's worth it! It has a very herb-y smell to it-some reviewers didn’t like it…but I did, it smelled really fresh to me. I got the product on the 26th, been using it since then and it really is a miracle worker! I mean, I was seriously considering booking a trip to the dermatologist because my problem was so bothersome, but no need! The product soaks in without feeling greasy, and my “hickey” dark spots have practically faded. I don’t really need to reapply and my neck is soft and doesn’t itch or anything. I've yet to find a product that does the job like Dream Cream. So I hope my review helped…let me know if you guys get it!
