Lush review... King of Skin

This is one of my all time favourite Lush products...

Lush say:
Body conditioner to make dry skin smooth and flexible. The King of Skin exists to make your skin softer and smoother. You wash, you stroke the bar over your body, you rinse it off, you dry and you feel as if you've been transported inside the skin of someone younger. We use cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut butter, bananas, toning essential oils, jojoba and almond oils, fresh avocado and oatmeal. You will be mildly astonished at the effect which these natural ingredients can have when used properly.

It's amazing. I have really bumpy skin (Keratosis Pilaris) on my arms and legs, as well as pretty dry skin in general, and this makes such a huge difference to it. As it's solid when room temperature I tend to stick it under the shower briefly (leave it in for too long and the whole thing will disappear down the plug hole!) to soften it up, and then it becomes amazingly slippery. It's really quick to use, and it means that you don't have to mess around with moisturising when you get out of the shower, which is especially nice in winter (or British summers...). The effects last for at least 3 days for me in general, and the bar itself lasts for ages as long as you don't leave it in/under hot water. 

The scent of it is hard to describe, for a Lush product it's very lightly scented, so if that's something that bothers you then this is worth looking at!

The only bad thing about it is how slippy it makes the bath/shower, so do be careful..! 

I really can't recommend this enough! 

King of Skin is available at Lush (online or instore) for £4.45..

Do you have a can't-live-without Lush product? Or Body butter if that's too hard ;)
