Lush Sympathy For The Skin Hand and Body Lotion

Looking for a lush lotion for dry skin? I've been trying something you might want to know about! A beautiful blend of vanilla, almond oil, cocoa butter and bananas (!), Sympathy for the Skin is already my autumnal skin saviour.

An oldie but a goodie, this concoction has been with Lush since the very beginning and is as popular now as it ever was thanks to its beautifully nourishing texture and gorgeously subtle scent.

The consistency of Sympathy for the Skin is fairly light due to the fact that it's a 'loose emulsion' and while it sinks into my skin pretty quickly, it does feel a tiny bit greasy, which I actually really like in colder weather but it's something that has the potential to be a deal breaker for me in the summer.

I love that Sympathy for the Skin contains actual organic bananas (you can even see the seeds in the cream) and I really love the way it smells. Vanilla, cocoa butter, lemon oil and sandalwood oil combined with the fresh bananas makes for one seriously delicious scent that I find strangely comforting, especially now that cardigan weather has arrived in London.

Sympathy for the Skin Hand and Body Lotion is available in Lush stores and online for £16 for a rather generous 240g pot. I bought mine about 3 weeks ago and I've barely made a dent in it so I think it's pretty good value too!
