Keratosis Pilaris: My Experience + My Product Recommendations

Keratosis Pilaris is an inherited skin condition that affects around 1 in 3 people, and is a build up of keratin that sits in the hair follicles and blocks them, causing rough dry skin, inflamed red bumps, and ingrown hairs. The condition (also colloquially known as 'chicken skin'- nice...) isn't harmless, painful or contagious- it's just annoying and can cause a huge lack in confidence.


Bags of Beauty: Dream Cream works... Like a dream!

LUSH Dream Cream (Taken from the LUSH website)
When I first checked out the product in LUSH Brent Cross, I saw that it was priced at a pricey £10.75 (:O) so that kind of put me off. But as soon as I tried out the cream on the back of my hand, I fell in love with it- the cream easily absorbed into my skin and made my skin feel super soft. So I brought it and I don't regret spending my money on it.

The product contains rose water, which is essential in calming the skin down when it becomes irritated and is also very useful in nourishing and hydrating your skin.

Other ingredients include Oat Milk, and lots of good oils (including Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil), so your skin is bound to end up as smooth as silk when you've slapped a bit on. 

I've already been using the cream for a few days, and I can already feel the difference in the softness and the hydration of my skin. 

I have a skin condition called 'Keratosis Pilaris' on my arms and so hydration for my skin is key, and I can definitely see the improvement of the condition after using Dream Cream. Seriously, if you have troubled or irritated skin, use this fab product!

The product has a lovely unique herbal smell and the texture of the cream is incredibly smooth. Another aspect I love about the product is that the cream lasts for ages on your skin, so re-applying won't be a big issue.

Tip: For even more brilliant results, exfoliate your skin with LUSH's Sugar Babe or Sugar Scrub before applying Dream Cream.

At £10.75, Dream Cream is totally worth it! Go on, take a trip down to your nearest LUSH store- I promise you won't regret it!
