Beauty Review: LUSH Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion

I gave you a little insight into how wonderful Lush's Vanilla Dee-Lite was last week when it made my Must Haves of the Moment list.  I picked this up a few weeks ago when I was at my favorite Lush location on Walnut Street in Philadelphia (if you ever get the chance to go there the staff is awesome and so knowledgeable).  I was looking for a body lotion that would work well for summer time and absorb quickly; I had previously used Sympathy for the Skin and was very happy with it, but wanted to try something different this time.  After playing around with several lotions I decided on Vanilla Dee-Lite because of its light texture and yummy scent.
From the minute I started using this it has been fantastic!  There's nothing I hate more about a lotion then a sticky after feeling, especially in the summer with the humidity, but there is no stickiness with Vanilla Dee-Lite.  Its super light consistency allows the lotion to instantly absorb into your skin, which is something I absolutely love.  In addition to the great texture, it has incredible moisturizing properties.  The lotion is packed with coconut oil, coconut water, hibiscus infusion, and illipe butter that all work to make your skin super soft.  Kiwis are also blended into the lotion to add vitamins and minerals to this powerful formula.  These ingredients all come together to really hydrate skin, and make it silky.  All of the ingredients in this lotion are natural or safe synthetics, and this is a vegan product, meaning that it does not contain animal products of any kind; these are each properties that I like because I feel like it is a healthier product to use on my body.  I know I mentioned before the scent, but it's something that I want to tell you a little more about.  As you can imagine Vanilla Dee-Lite has a beautiful Vanilla scent (the Lush website explains that it is scented with their "famous Vanillary fragrance"), I have to say though that I like it better on the skin then in the bottle - I can't even explain why it just smells better when you're wearing it.  The best part is that the scent lasts seemingly forever so you don't even have to wear perfume if you don't want to, but if you do it's light enough that it mixes nicely with other fragrances.
I put this lotion on right when I get out of the shower and allow it to really sink in while I do my hair.  A little of it goes a long way, and you need much less than I initially thought to cover your whole body.  A few weeks ago I had surgery and couldn't shower regularly because of stitches I had, so I would put this on to 'freshen up' and to make myself feel a little better.  It kept my skin in good shape and helped me to smell pretty and feel it too!).

If you're looking for a lotion I really recommend giving Lush's Vanilla Dee-Lite a try.  It's a great body product that I have become obsessed with using.  I can definitely see this luxe lotion being a must have of mine for a long time to come!

Do you use any of Lush's beauty products?  What do you think of their natural approach to beauty?
