Another week means another Lushie product up for review! As its getting cold and hands are getting sore I thought this week I would show you a rather fabby hand cream.
So, Smitten! One of my all time favourite Lush products.
Retro section of the Lush website. There was a lot of sadness when this was discontinued in store and it's become somewhat of a cult product among Lush lovers. Why?
First of all there is the soft, almondy smell which is the same as Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar, two other much loved products. The smell is so soft and calming that it's hard not to love it.
Secondly, there is the mix of ingredients. There is a high content of both chamomile infusion and almond oil, two very soft, skin soothing ingredients which instantly calm irritation and help the skin re-gain some of its lost moisture. There is also a mix of beeswax, lanolin and glycerine used in the hand cream all of which are known to be great products for providing a protective, yet ungreasy layer between the skin and the outside world which helps to make the cream affective for a long time after applying without feeling icky on the skin whilst nourishing the hands when they really need it. Finally, there is rose absolute used which is again, nice and soothing, but also helps to reduce any redness or scarring caused by the driness.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone, without a moments hesitation and to anyone making a Lush online order, you should totally pop a pot into your basket too, you won't regret it.
Has anyone tried Smitten? What do you think of it? Do any of you have a hand saving cream that you always rely on year after year?
