Review // Lush Love and Light Hand Cream
I've never been one for hand creams. I find the greasiness a bit irritating and I've just never really felt the need for it. Lush's Love and Light was included in a gift set so I gave it a go and I was surprised to find I really liked it!
Love and Light is packaged inside one of Lush's black pots, meaning you can use it as part of the free face mask recycling campaign. However, as it's a 55g pot, it's quite large and may not be particularly handbag-friendly unless you have a large bag. Of course it's easy to decant into a smaller pot though and it seems secure enough for travelling.
This cream is quite heavily fragranced and reminds me of R&B as it has a similar earthy floral scent. With strong notes of neroli, orange blossom and orange oil, at first I wasn't too sure about it, but it grew on me. Probably not one if you prefer a subtle fragrance though.
CONSISTENCY & APPLICATION
Very thick, with an almost whipped consistency, I was concerned that it would leave my hands greasy. Thankfully Love and Light absorbed almost instantly without any discomfort. I only needed a tiny amount to fully moisturise my hands which is a huge plus!
Despite my belief that I didn't need a hand cream, it turns out I absolutely love this product! The three natural oils (jojoba, orange and neroli) and cocoa butter is super duper moisturising! After use my hands feel super soft and moisturised as well as, yes, smelling lovely,
I'm super impressed with Love and Light. It's definitely converted me to hand creams and I can't wait to try some more!
