LUSH Charity Pot

One of the many things I got inside my LUSH gift box was a small tub of Charity Pot. I've been using this for a month and it's coming to an end... Therefore I figured a review was in order.

What's in it and what does it do?

On the pot it states that it contains cocoa butter, almond oil and ylang ylang oil (you can find the full list of ingredients here). Apart from the whole purpose of using a body lotion - to moisturise - it doesn't claim to do much else. This is primarily because LUSH emphasise that all proceeds from their Charity Pot go to their charity pot fund. Even though it doesn't claim to do much, it does moisturise very well and leaves my skin feeling super soft. It sinks in very quickly, which is also a bonus.

How much and how long?
It's a hand and body lotion but as I have a lot of hand creams lying around, I used this as a body lotion. You can buy a 10g trial size for £1 and the 240g full size pot is £12.75. The 95g pot which I received in the hatbox will last just over 6 weeks for me so I imagine a 240g pot would last for well over 3 months!

How does it smell?
I can detect something which smells like Turkish Delight but LUSH claim this has a chocolatey scent. Whatever it is, the scent is borderline over-powering and I can't imagine that you could apply this in the morning and get away with layering a perfume over it...

Other comments:
Would I buy it myself? The scent is slightly off putting for me and for that reason, sadly not.
Would I recommend it? Take a sniff or two and if you like the scent then yes. All the money goes to charity and it does do a very good job of moisturising so you can't go wrong!

Great review - I'm a big fan of LUSH but I agree that sometimes the scents of their products can be a bit overpowering! Ut's great that they're doing their bit for charity - I might try out the trial size pot since it's only £1!
