Anything that shares its scent with my beloved and very much discontinued Blackberry bath bomb is a must have product for me. I’m actually getting bored of hearing myself explain this in every Blackberry/Sultana scented product review that I do so I will be as brief as possible.
Before the Blackberry bath bomb was discontinued it was my go-to-product if my insomnia decided to pay me a visit. To this day products with the Blackberry/Sultana scent are the only non medicinal things in the world that actually help me fall and stay asleep, I therefore hold anything with its scent with very high regards, grabbing anything and everything Lush create, if and when I can.
Sultana Body Lotion was recently in the Lush Kitchen alongside several other body lotions made in the most popular Lush scents. At first I wasn’t going to order any Sultana body lotion as I have a huge bottle of the body conditioner equivalent in my bathroom. Of course I changed my mind, (stating the obvious) they are both completely different products… In hindsight I am so pleased that I did get the lotion as I actually really like the Blackberry scent in this format. Its scent is exactly like the Blackberry bath bomb.
Consistency wise I think the Sultana body lotion is perfect, it’s not too thick and it’s not too runny. It has a beautifully smooth texture that is a similar consistency to a petit filous yogurt. As with most Lush products, a little amount of it goes a very long way. With it not being too thick a formula the Sultana body lotion rubs in easily, something I love in a body lotion. There’s nothing worse than a body lotion that takes ages to rub in!
Once put on, Sultana body lotion leaves my skin feeling perfectly hydrated and appearance wise much brighter, even the dry patches of my skin such as my elbows look and feel smooth. Its scent is also still detectable on my skin hours after using it, this is of course a huge bonus for me. There’s just something so relaxing about Lush’s ‘Blackberry’ signature-blend-of bergamot and frankincense oils.
One thing I have noticed is that Sultana body lotion doesn’t soak in to your skin very quickly, as I said above a little does go a long way so this isn’t a huge issue. Less is more and all that! Overall I am really impressed with the Sultana body lotion, I hope that Lush decide to bring it out again as it’s the perfect product format for the Blackberry scent.
