Lush Smitten Handcream

I started using LUSH products since 2002. I love their bath ballistics and bubble bar slices. I've also tried Dream Cream and Dreamwash which are both great products. I was at LUSH in April to pick up some bath ballistics. The sales assistant recommended Smitten Handcream, I was told it worked very well for dry hands. I really liked the scent so I decided to give it a try.

It comes in a 100ml jar. Like Dream Cream, it's not that thick. I like handcream that isn't too heavy.

I was using this handcream religiously for one month and did not notice any difference. My hands were still dry, so I stopped using it.

I decided to give it another chance again. I use it more often and it really does moisturize my skin and keeps it soft. *thumbs up* 

What I don't like about this product?
- It's so greasy. 

Will I buy it again?
Maybe. I've read that LUSH is going to discontinue this product. I still see them at the LUSH store I usually buy my stuffs from last week. It's a great product but I've tried other handcreams that work really well on me, like L'Occitane Shea Butter Handcream which can be a little bit too pricey for its size.


  1. I am not a fan of greasy lotions. It looks nice and creamy in the jar though.

  2. Thank you for this, I have very dry/sensitive skin all year round and because I suffer from eczema on my hands. I am always on a hunt for the perfect cosmetic!

  3. Cosmetics Aficionado: I'll only use greasy lotions in the evening. For the daytime, I prefer something light.

    Elizabeth: I've very sensitive skin and it gets really dry in winter. This product works for me. It's a shame that it's going to be discontinued.

  4. I've recently gotten into LUSH products and the bath bombs are a lot of fun. Thanks for the review on this. I'll check it out when I hit the store next time.
