Review: Lush Handy Gurugu

I got this product little less than two months ago from my dear. I sent him to Lush to get me some essential stuff (Lemony Flutter, Pied de Pepper) and he bought me this hand cream too! I mean, I wasn't really expecting it (even if it was on my wish list).

The package is a nice 100g pot full of product. I like the fact that if you bring 5 pots you get a face mask! 

Rose Water (Rosa damascena), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Organic Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Triethanolamine, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria chamomilla), Organic Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis), Organic Peanut Butter (Arachis hypogaea), Organic Pumpkinseed Butter (Cucurbita), Organic Cashew Butter (Anacardium occidentale), Organic Almond Butter (Prunus dulcis), Tincture of Benzoin (Styrax benzoin), Cetearyl Alcohol, *Benzyl Salicylate, *Coumarin, *Geraniol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Chlorophyllin (CI 75810), Methylparaben, Propylparaben

At first, it was more or less a hard cream, it wasn't all that creamy. But that's because it was cold outside. After a month (and me digging deeper in the cream) it got nice and creamy! The texture is a bit of a heavy hand cream, which spreads easily and doesn't leave a film behind it. I loved it because it moisturized my hands like none did before (not even my fav hand cream!).

 Just opened!


This one has a nice 'green' scent, well it reminds me of some wild herbs. I absolutely love it (it's kind of fresh!), and my boyfriend got sick whenever he smelled it, lol!  I guess it's not OK for everyone. 

Sadly I used it in a month and a half (yes, I don't have it anymore) even if I thought ah 100g? then it should last me for 2 months. Yah, right! It didn't :(! 
The price is quite expensive, considered that I used it so quickly (about 14€). But other girls said that they use it slowly, maybe I'm just a crazy hand cream lady xD!

+Smells divine.
+Comes in a handy pot (a bit unhygienic).
+Spreads easily.
+It moisturizes hands like nothing else!
+Is a Vegan product.
+Works great on dry hands (like mine).

-The price!!
-The scent can be nauseating for others.

The price: 2/5 ♥♥ (14€)
Rating: 4/5 ♥♥♥♥ (the price is  -♥)

I really enjoyed using this hand cream and I'll probably buy it again in a couple of months (because it probably is too heavy for summer). The scent is something I got used to pretty quickly (at first it terrified me), the texture is quite interesting (I prefer liquid hand creams so this one was a really nice addition), and I absolutely loved the Eco fancy pot. It is travel-friendly so I had it with me at any time! If you have the chance, do try it out. Especially if you can get a sample of this! Sadly here in Slovenia, they don't give out samples at Lush! 
Anyway, this hand cream became my n.1 and I've tried so many of them.
