Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion Review & Swatch-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
My best friend from India managed to send me my birthday gifts even though I had just moved here to UK 😀 😀 And what better choice than to send me stuff from Lush? I was such a massive fan of the brand before it got discontinued in India :'( She sent me a few things among which is my cult staple Mask of Magnaminty and a creamy body lotion called Charity Pot which I will review today 🙂

My take on the Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion-
The lotion comes in a typical matte black Lush pot with a screw-on lid which is consistent with the brand & in spite of my dislike of open jar packaging, I do still love the familiar Lush packaging. It is both easy to use & carry.
The lotion is a very very rich, thick, creamy lotion which almost looks like curd (Bengali mishti doi :P) & to my surprise, in spite of its very thick texture, it glides on to skin & melts like butter without any heavy/greasy feeling at all 🙂 It sinks into skin pretty quickly & my hands & body are left very very soft, supple & hydrated.
The lotion hydrates my skin so very well & I never have to reapply on the days I use this after my shower <3 It keeps my skin hydrated & soft all day long & never leaves any traces on clothes 🙂 I only need a tiny bit for each use & I have used this for 3 weeks+ without even going through half 😀
The fragrance is so amazing omg..it is a heady, mesmerizing, ylang ylang dominated fragrance with mild vanilla & rosy notes ^_^ The smell lasts on my skin for ages & I adore it 😀
Pros of the Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion:
1> Convenient & travel friendly sturdy Lush tub packaging.
2> The lotion is deliciously rich & very creamy but still easy to apply & massage in.
3> No heavy residue/feeling on skin.
4> Provides amazing hydration for my very dry skin & makes skin healthy & supple.
5> No need to reapply.
6> Natural ingredients.
7> Amazing long lasting soothing fragrance.
Cons of the Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion:
None for me except the availability in India 🙁
Swatch of the Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion-
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion?
Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion is a deliciously indulgent, beautiful smelling thick, rich hand & body lotion perfect for us with drier skin & for dry weather especially 🙂 I have been loving it & sniffing it all day whenever I use & going to pick up the biggest tub as soon as I run out of this one! Recommended.
