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!
Lush Love and Light Hand Cream Review


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.

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!

  1. I'm like you and have never really felt the need for hand cream, even in the winter - but if anything could convert me then I'm sure it would be Lush!

  2. I do like hand creams, but I find it so hard to find one that absorbs fast enough. As far as I'm concerned, it's definitely not ok to have to wait more than 30 seconds (after rubbing it all over your hands) for it to soak in.
    My sister got me LUSH's Lemony Flutter and while it is good, it does take a while to soak in, which is a bit annoying.

  3. I got this is a gift set and have fallen in love, too! I rarely like the smell of any Lush skincare products so it was a surprise to like this so much. I use hand creams anyway but this requires an impressively small amount and may just be my new favourite :)

  4. I love their hand creams. I'm currently using Sympathy For The Skin which is hand and body lotion. Bananas and cocoa butter - it smells amazing, and leaves my hands feeling lovely. Before I discovered Lush, I found all hand creams to be quite greasy. But Lush manage to avoid that somehow! I might have to try this one after I've finished Sympathy For The Skin! x x

  5. I'm quite a big fan of hand creams as my hands can get really dry, especially around my nails, but I've never tried one as 'solid' as this before. I'll definitely take a look next time I'm in store x
