For Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive a little box full of Lush goodies from Jack’s mum, because she’s lovely like that! Amongst some of my favourite Lush products, there was the Love and Light hand cream!
I’d not used this hand cream before but it seems to be a blogger favourite, so I was quite excited to try it out. The pot that I have is actually just 55g but I don’t think you can buy that size pot in store separately, I’m pretty sure it only comes in the Lush gift boxes, but forgive me if i’m wrong!
The first thing I want to talk about is the scent. Love and Light has a really light and fresh scent to it. You guys know that I’m no expert when it comes to describing scents, but there is neroli oil, Brazilian orange oil and orange flower absolute oil in there, so if you can try and imagine those three oil scents all blended together, then that’s what this hand cream smells like! Alternatively, pop into a Lush store and give this bad boy a sniff! It almost smells a bit like a summer garden? Okay I give trying to explain this!
Secondly, the consistency of this hand cream is pretty thin and as my hands are so ridiculously dry at the moment, I do tend to use a fair amount to get good coverage over both of my hands BUT it doesn’t leave my hands feeling greasy or leave a weird film on them, which is amazing because there are so many hand creams that I’ve used before that I’ve stopped using after just one or two uses because they just feel gross and greasy.
I’ve been trying to remember to use this hand cream at least twice a day, once in the morning and again in the evening before bed. Admittedly, some days I completely forget to use it but then other days I use it up to five times! I would definitely recommend this hand cream to anyone that’s in search of something light on the paws and easy on the nostrils, but that also leaves your hands feeling super smooth and supple! It’s not the cheapest hand cream out there, but it doesn’t really break the bank either and I know as soon as this pot is finished, I’ll be buying the 220g pot straight away!
