"You'd be unlikely to buy Dream Cream for its herbal scent alone," says the Lush website. "Chamomile smells a bit too much like freshly dug flower beds, even with lavender and rose thrown in."

Well, I'm glad they said it, and not me, because it's true: this isn't the best smelling cream I've ever tried. The good news, though, is that the scent doesn't linger on your skin, so you don't actually have to walk around smelling like a freshly dug flower bed, and, scent aside, this is just a little pot of goodness. It's satisfyingly thick and creamy, so you feel like you're giving your skin a treat as you rub it in, but it doesn't take forever to dry, which means it passes the Dollface Test of Body Cream.

The chamomile in it is great for soothing irritations, which is why this is marketed as being good for problem skin, but even if your skin s irritation-free, this will still help it stay soft and supple. It can also be used as a hand cream, so I keep my pot out on display and try to remember to dip in every time I go past it .Well, every little helps…

  1. God, I seem like a right stalker commenting here so much today! But then Dream Cream is one of my favourite body lotions EVAH, so I feel like it’s my duty 😉
    The funny thing is, on the old Lush website the blurb stated that “Dream Cream has one of the most appealing fragrances of all their products” or something like that. Seems like they changed their opinion since then 😉 even though the scent is still the same.
