Let's all ignore the fact, that I have been neglecting this blog for way longer than acceptable...Life happens, you know? I have lost my inspiration and motivation for a while, but hopefully I am back to stay this time. I am working my best to set up a plan to be more productive and stay motivated. I will let you know the secret, if I ever do find one.
Just from my previous posts, like this one, or that one, or that other one, the guide how to order from Lush Kitchen, and the stash under my table *purposely looks away*, there is no doubt I am a passionate Lush fan.
Embarassingly, for unknown reasons, I have always ignored the Dream Cream, despite it being almost a cult product. I must have been distracted by other colorful things in the store and ignored the sad black pot. Lush must have felt bad for the poor guy, and they decided to change the packaging by slapping bright colored, standing out flowers on the pot. I bet it worked, seeing it was all over Instagram all the sudden, and poor Stumble Puppy has been sent running to a local Lush to grab me a pot.

Did you notice your skin’s condition changing coming out of summer and towards autumn? Are the aircons in the office driving you crazy? Has summer weather had you enjoy one glass of wine too many? Have you been stressed recently and consuming more coffee than you should? Have you been travelling a lot, and changed buses, trains and planes all the time? All the mentioned things are the stressors that affects our skin. I am not going to lie, I have been exposed to all of those things recently. I am not even surprised, that my skin is acting up quite a lot, so I called Dream Cream to the rescue to calm down my neglected skin.
Although this product is fully packed with rose water, I don't hate it as much as I thought it would. For an unknown reason, I smell kaolin despite the fact there is not a single trace of it there. There is a strongly expressed lavender note, and I can also get a whiff of oatmilk, and a tiny bit of chamomile. To be honest, I don't hate the smell, but I am not overly pleased by it either.
When looking in the tub, Dream Cream seems rather thick in consistency, nearly like a thick greek yoghurt. It is easy to scoop up, and upon contact with the skin, it thins up and absorbs immediately. It is worth noting, that a small dollop of cream goes a long way, and a 240g tub would last you for quite a while.
As mentioned above, the cream is very rich, but easy to spread. What surprised me most, was how hydrating it is. Without exgagerating, applying lotion in the morning after shower, would keep my skin supple and hydrated throughout the day, and it will still be nice and soft when I go to bed. Besides being really nourishing, it also works wonderfully soothing sore, flaky, itchy skin, which I tend to have, when climate changes, and air conditioners will always be ultimate fiends for my skin.
Heck (can I say that on my blog?) yeah!
Do you have your Holy Grail moisturizer? Have you tried Dream Cream? Do let me know in the comments. Feedback is really important to me, and I would like to know that I am not only writing into empty space.
P.S. As luck would have it, nearly at the same moment the blog post went live, I received an email from Lush inviting me to an interview. Unfortunately, the price for plane ticket for that day is atrociously expensive, so unless I can find a way as miraculous as this cream, I won't be able to attend it. Can you please send me all the positive thoughts and vibes so I can not only have the Dream Cream, but my Dream Job as well?
