Description

Please allow me to introduce myself

I'm a cream of wealth and taste

A rich cream of cocoa butter and bananas to soften the skin.

Helen invented this because she is passionate about the amazing properties of fruit and wanted to be able to get them directly onto the skin in an easy to sink in cream.

Product Story

Made from a loose emulsion of vanilla pod infusion, cocoa butter and almond oil, into which fresh organic bananas are mashed and added. Finished off with a gorgeous vanilla, lemon oil, labdanum and sandalwood fragrance.

Loose emulsions are great because, unlike their tighter more heavily-bound cousins, they allow the ingredients to be easily absorbed by the skin. So it is great for this cream, allowing the gel-like properties of mashed bananas to easily sink in and do their work.

Vanilla, banana and cocoa butter on the skin – what more could be wanted.

This product has been with us since the start of Lush. It is so popular that we have never yet been able to retire it.

Named after the Rolling Stones track, Sympathy for the Devil.

Directions

Use as needed on sensitive or dry sore skin.

I use this when my neck becomes red and sore which happens from time to time. I first tried this in the shop when one of the staff put in on my neck for me! I bought some the next visit after I used my sample up. It doesn't smell much but is quite a creamy scent so not unpleasant but will not make your skin smell gorgeous. It is gentle, silky soft and is very quickly absorbed leaving skin feeling well fed, cool and comfortable. I love this for when I need it but don't use it daily as I do like creams for my body with a bit more scent.
