Lush Dreamtime Bath Oil Review

Hey guys!

I received this bath oil in a gift set my partner bought for me for our anniversary! It’s a very new gift set called ‘Relax More’ – I’m very grateful to be one of the first people to have received it! I hope you enjoy this review 🙂


Dreamtime Bath Oil:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This bath oil is SLIGHTLY messy. I did need to use a simple sponge to get some purple residue off of my bath, but it was extremely to do. If I’m honest, I didn’t clean it off until the next day when I next went to take a bath, and it still came off very easily. But, if reside in your bath is something you’re worried about, perhaps you should try a different product 🙂

The scent of Dreamtime is VERY pungent! It smells strongly of lavender. If lavender is not a scent you are keen on, I’d steer clear of this product.

The purple oils that this product releases will stick to your skin a little when you’re in the bath. This wasn’t a problem for me, because I always use a shower gel and shower pouf to wash myself when I take a bath – residue came right off! But, if you just want to use the bath oil in the bath to relax, and not to actually bathe, this may not the be bath product for you!

Dreamtime made me feel so relaxed and sleepy in the bath that I was genuinely scared that I was going to fall asleep whilst in the bath! You definitely have to be careful with this one.

If you don’t like to feel tired or uber relaxed after your bath, this would be an absolutely terrible bath oil to use. You won’t feel like doing anything at all after taking a bath with Dreamtime!


Pros:

This bath oil is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! It is a beautiful purple colour with a ‘Z’ on the top of it, which has been dusted over with gold lustre. It is seriously pretty, and looks even more beautiful when it melts in the bath!

I found this to be such a relaxing product, seriously. This would be an amazing product to use an hour or two before going to sleep, just to help you wind down and fall asleep easily. I’m someone who has quite a lot of anxiety, and so my mind always races with things I’m stressed out about before I go to bed. If this bath oil can relax someone like me then trust me, it will work for you too!

In my opinion, this bath oil creates a beautiful bath. It doesn’t really colour the bath much at all, but it just leaves your bath feeling super moisturising. It also leaves some gorgeous, lustre-filled purple blobs of oil on the surface of the bath water, which to me looks much like a lava lamp! The bath art with this one is very subtle, which is something I appreciate most when I just want to relax.

I think this one smells absolutely amazing. The entire bathroom smelled so strongly of lavender that whenever I went in to check if the bath oil had melted, I was sure to quickly shut the door behind me (to prevent any of the gorgeous scent from escaping!) If you appreciate the scent of lavender then please, try this bath product. It is very underrated and I’m not quite sure why. I know they changed the formula of it recently but regardless, this is such an amazing product!

This bath oil took a while to melt. Now, usually I don’t like it when bath bombs take a long time to finish fizzing, because I like to watch and take photos and I get bored after a while! With this bath oil though, because there wasn’t much of a “show” either way, I was able to just sit in my room and go on my laptop for a while. It actually made the whole experience even more relaxing, because the experience wasn’t rushed at all. I was also sure to fill the bath with quite hot water, so that it wouldn’t be tepid by time I got in!

The bath water might feel SLIGHTLY oily when you first get in, but once you’ve washed your hair and your body etc, it won’t feel so oily anymore. I also topped up my bath with some cold water, which made moisturising effect of the bath oil more subtle.

After leaving the bath, my legs and skin in general felt PERFECTLY moisturised. I didn’t feel too oily or tacky, and I didn’t feel dry at all either. It was just an absolutely perfect level of moisturisation.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I absolutely loved this bath oil. I don’t even know why I have never tried a bath oil before this one, because they are so cheap and create the perfect bath (at least for me!) I honestly couldn’t have had a more relaxing bath than I did with Dreamtime. I feel like this is a bath oil that would go really well with Tisty Tosty or Sakura bath bomb if you like to mix bath products, because I also found those two to be very subtle and extremely relaxing (although I personally do not like to mix bath products.)

If you are a very active, productive person, and enjoy being that way and don’t enjoy taking time to relax, then maybe this isn’t the bath oil for you. For me though, I think Dreamtime is perfect for those times that you just feel super stressed and down.

Overall, I’m going to give this bath oil a 5/5* rating. I just really couldn’t fault it, and I feel like it a product that every stress-prone person needs in their cupboard for emergencies!

Lush Magical Moringa Moisturiser Review

Magical Moringa Moisturiser:

Rating: 3/5*

Cons:

If you want to really feel your face feeling very moisturised after using a moisturiser, this is not the one for you! After using a moisturiser, I like to really be able to feel the product on my skin, so that I know it is doing its job! After applying a lot of this moisturiser you can feel it on the skin, but… I don’t know… It just doesn’t really feel as moisturising as any other moisturiser I have used from Lush to be honest!

Sometimes, I actually found this moisturiser to be drying to my skin! My concealer would sit terribly and wouldn’t be able to blend out well at all when applied over a layer of Magical Moringa… Honestly, I think this moisturiser by itself is pretty terrible!

Any makeup on my face would just look dry, flakey, cakey and would just settle in any texture on my face whatsoever, after using this moisturiser by itself. It definitely isn’t one that really improves the overall appearance of one’s makeup!

You have to use A LOT of this product to feel it doing anything at all to your skin.

Okay, this is going to sound strange, but… This moisturiser smells like curry. Like a delicious, spicy curry. Maybe some of you guys don’t want your face smelling like a good ol’curry all day 😀

This moisturiser melts with the warmth of your fingers – it is what it melts into that scares me a bit. It melts into an oil pretty much. Applying something so oily to my skin kind of terrifies me because I have very sensitive skin, so it is easy for me to get acne! If you are quite acne prone then I really wouldn’t suggest this one for you.

THIS MOISTURISER IS SO EXPENSIVE!!! No, seriously. It is definitely a love or hate product so guys, if you are interested please for the love of God, get a sample before purchasing it!

This moisturiser not only doesn’t FEEL very moisturising on the skin at all, it also takes away any APPEARANCE of moisture in your skin. For some people, this is absolutely fantastic! For me, I like some slight dewyness to my skin because I think moisturised skin looks more healthy. If you feel the same way then again, steer away from this little guy!


Pros:

Okay so for me personally, I absolutely love the smell of this moisturiser! I don’t care if my face smells like a Indian spices, so long as it smells good! Like, this is the best smelling moisturiser that I think I’ve ever smelt… It smells absolutely incredible!

This moisturiser applied over the top of a good serum works absolutely fine. In fact, I really like the way this moisturiser works over a serum. It isn’t heavy at all, the serum keeps the skin’s texture slighly dewy and looking healthy, the serum keeps the skin nicely moisturised… Under a serum, this moisturiser just leaves your skin feeling really soft, incredibly smooth and quite lovely!

I haven’t had any absolutely terrible acne while using this moisturiser, although it certainly hasn’t stopped my acne from occurring either. But it at least hasn’t appeared to make it any worse!

I find that I need to re-apply powder to my face a little less when using this moisturiser as opposed to others from Lush. It doesn’t stop me from needing to re-apply powder entirely, but it does keep my face looking alright for longer.

Again, when applied OVER a serum, my makeup just sort of “works” better than it usually would. I don’t have to apply so much concealer because it just goes further over the top of a serum and Magical Moringa. I’m not quite sure why, but it is a really nice quality of this moisturiser.

Honestly, I received this moisturiser as a sample and man, Lush was generous with their sample of this moisturiser. It lasted me a really nice amount of time! Definitely worth asking for a good sample of Magical Moringa Moisturiser to try at home, right?


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, meh… I don’t really know what to think of this one.

For the billionth time, it works nicely under a serum, but do I really want to be applying a serum to my face EVERY MORNING…? I usually prefer to apply a serum before bed or something, so that it can sink in while I sleep and so that my skin doesn’t feel so heavy throughout the day…

The smell is really nice though, and the effects over a serum are honestly pretty damn good.

I’m going to rate this moisturiser a 3/5* rating. It’s a shame because it does smell absolutely delicious… I just don’t really think it was moisturising enough for me.

Before trying Lush products, I would have thought this moisturiser to be absolutely perfect for me, because my skin can get really oily throughout the day. But since using Lush products, I’ve sort of learnt just how much your skin needs moisture in order to be its healthiest, and I just don’t feel that this moisturiser provided that for me personally.
