Lush Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion is a new, sadly limited edition Twilight scented body cream that can be used on your hands or your body which released with the Lush Holiday/Christmas 2016 Collection.
I’m actually not a massive Lush Twilight fan girl but I know people who live and die for it (ahem my sister!). Twilight has launched in many different products over the years and has gathered a cult following thanks to it’s light lavender and tonka fragrance that’s users find soothing and relaxing. I like it well enough but it isn’t my favorite Lush fragrance! That title would go to Snowcake, Snow Fairy, Honey, I Washed the Kids, and I Love Juicy.
But in the case of Lush Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion I might just be one person to sign a petition to keep it on past Christmas.
I was attracted to Lush Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion ($9.95-$23.95) because of it’s beautiful purple shade. I love purple, there’s something so terribly appealing about the shade! But this purple hued body cream isn’t only pretty but rather soothing as well. The scent is that of an herbally lavender with hint of tonka that gives the scent a little bit of a zip but for the most part lavender does dominate here and gives off a very relaxing, comforting scent which makes this a perfect product to use before bed time. I’d liken the scent to Lush Dream Cream but with a bit more lavender.
It contains a blend of almond oil, oatmeal, and cocoa butter and has a thick, creamy consistency that absorbs easily and leaves skin with a lingering scent. I find the formula works wonderfully on my drier skin and absorbs easily without making me sticky, tacky, or greasy. I don’t really love it as a hand cream unless I’m using it at night. For daily use as a hand cream it’s a bit too heavy but at night I find the consistency just fine!
It surprised me as I didn’t really think I’d get as much use out of it as I did! I’m nearly down half the pot at this point and likely will go back and purchase another before it disappears. Lush should consider making this one permanent.
Twilight fans, don’t hesitate, you’ll want to snag this one before it disappears.
