This is a product I have been meaning to review for quite some time now, but I wanted to make sure I used it enough so I could give you guys a thorough and honest review on it. I’m talking about the newest member of the hand cream family, Love and Light Hand Cream. This was originally an Oxford Street exclusive, but alas like many products this has finally joined the permanent range at Lush, and I’m glad it has as it’s so lovely!
I’ve been using this hand cream for over a month now and it’s absolutely lovely! As regular readers of my blog will know, I suffer from seasonal eczema so I am forever on the hunt for the perfect hand cream to see me through the seasons. Although I picked up the 100g pot, this does in fact come in two sizes, something I didn’t know about until I had a look at this online. The 100g pot retails for £7.95, and the larger 220g pot retails for £13.95. Although at first I wish I had picked up the larger tub, I’m pretty glad I didn’t, as you only need a little bit of this stuff and it really does go a long way!
I use this everyday and it’s a silky smooth, light hand cream which I’ve already said goes a long way. I make sure to slather on this stuff to ensure my hands stay soft and smooth until the afternoon when I get a chance to reapply this. This smells really fresh and of oranges and lemons, which makes sense considering this contains orange blossom. Due to how light this hand cream is it quickly sinks into the skin and leaves your hands soft and smooth, perfect for on the go!
I make sure to use this hand cream at least three times a day! In the morning before I leave for work, the afternoon when I get home, and in the evening before I go to bed. The consistency of the cream reminds me more of a gel, than a cream as it isn’t rich, but light and airy which I love. I like to ideally use this after using the Salted Coconut Hand Scrub so that all the goodness can get into my skin. I usually use this combo at night before bed so it can get to work whilst I sleep.
Usually my eczema plays up around now, leaving my hands feeling sore, red, and very bloody. However my hands are gorgeously soft and smooth, and I can safely say that it is down to Love and Light! It might be too early to say this, or I may have just jinxed it, but I am pretty sure that it’s down to this hand cream that my hands are in such good condition. Due to how light this hand cream is, I pop some into the little black sample pots that Lush give so that I can use this on the go, so I always have some on me!
I’m just so damn surprised at how moisturising this hand cream is considering how light it is. I’ve used so many light hand creams in the past that just didn’t work well for me at all! Due to the eczema I need a good thick cream to penetrate my skin and leave it soft, so the fact that the ingredients in Love and Light is just that good, makes it one of my favourite hand creams to date. It’s an added bonus that it lasts so damn long for how much you pay for it.
Although many may not love this hand cream as much as I do, it is definitely perfect for warm days in the summer, and summer holiday’s in the sun! I’m pretty lucky this works on my eczema, as it may not work so well on people who have it all year around, or daresay worse than I have it.
Either way it is definitely worth picking up a sample of, which alone lasted me a week!
