Dream Cream is one of Lush's most effective work-horse products. If you need an effective all-around moisturizer, this is a good one to have. But it's when you need more than just moisturizing that Dream Cream really comes into its own.
Formulated to specifically deal with sensitive skin, Dream Cream reads like a herbalist's guide to calming plants. Chamomile, oat milk, tea tree oil, rose oil, lavender oil - all things designed to smooth and sooth. Dream Cream has moisturized my babies, cooled my sunburns, soothed insect stings and abrasions, and even helped my father's eczema. It has also treated my winter "lizard leg" and left behind skin that was smooth and almost glossy looking.
Dream Cream is not, however, a fantastically scented product. It is overtly herbal smelling, not unpleasant, but like you've been gardening in an herb garden. This does fade quickly, but it's not the sort of scent that you want to wear the night of your big date. That said, nothing else is going to get your skin in such good condition *for* that date, so you might want to make a trade off there.
For silky smooth skin even under duress, I would definitely recommend Dream Cream, for you and every member of your family.
