Lush Sunscreen Lotion – Sesame Suntan Lotion Review

Lush sunscreen lotion

Lush Sunscreen Lotion

The Lush Sesame Suntan Lotion offers SPF 10 and needs to be applied generously and topped up every 2 hours for protection from the sun. It is designed for effective skin hydration so it also works as a really good after sun.

This Lush sunscreen lotion is rich in nutrients combining organic sesame oil, walnut leaf infusion, aloe vera extract and for softening the skin there is also Fair Trade organic cocoa butter. These ingredients will help you tan whilst protecting and nourishing the skin. This product is vegan and like all their products it is cruelty free, handmade, fresh, natural and they support ethically buying. A recent product I fell in love with was the Lush shaving soap and I also wrote about my Lush experience here.

I usually love Lush products instantly but with this item I am still unsure. The consistency, texture and effect are all fantastic but I am still undecided as to if I like the smell. There is a strong food smell given out from the Lush sunscreen lotion, it is very nutty from the walnut leaf and roasted sesame seeds. Whilst nice it is very strong aroma and for summer I would much rather something lighter, more refreshing or fruity, maybe with coconut oil instead.

The lotion is slightly thick and gives a bronzed, moisturised look once rubbed in, acting slightly like a tinted moisturiser. I’ve really enjoyed the look it gives my legs and also applying it to my face on these summer days when I haven’t put on any face make up. For me it has been quite a good base for make up, protecting my skin and bringing through a healthy, dewy glow.
