When I found out Lush had made a body lotion that gives ALL money spent to charity I couldn’t get my tooshie there fast enough. What can I say? I’m a sucker for any beauty product that makes me feel like I’m “giving” when I’m actually “taking”.
Brand/Product: Lush Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion.
Smell: When I first sampled this I found the smell really weird and a bit stale. Once I got this baby home though I discovered it smells really sweet, literally – like a mix of chocolate and lollies.
Why I love It: They use recyclable materials, fairly-traded cocoa butter and give to charity – really what more could you want? You can find out more information on their charity support page.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): I opted for the 45 grammer for two reasons. Firstly, the smell didn’t grab me in the store. Secondly, I was travelling and wanted something light to take with me. It has a runny consistency and definitely more of a lotion than a butter. It’s moisturising and absorbs well into the skin without leaving sticky residue.
I will definitely restock the next time I’m in there – which happens to be next week because something exciting is coming – watch this space. Sorry, back on track. This gets a YAY!
