Fairly expensive compared with other body lotions on the market, although I would say this product is worth the extra cost. Lush do not test on animals, so by purchasing this over another cream, you are not supporting the practise, the product is also made with fresh, natural ingredients which is most certainly a bonus.

"Sympathy for the Skin" comes in a 240g no frills style pot. The experiation date is around a year, so you will have plenty of time to use your product before it goes 'off', unlike some other lush products that I have had to throw out before I had a chance to use it all!

The lotion is a gentle, off white colour, with black specks, with the texture being soft and creamy. As with most lush products, the smell is just gorgeous-a light vanilla scent.

The cream is easily applied, and seems to absorb into the skin fairly quickly at first, although does leave a sort of 'shine' for about five minutes afterwards. I was a little dissapointed in that the cream also sometimes leaves small black specks on your skin, which I found looks a little unsightly, especially if you have just spent a while showering etc before going out. Your skin also feels a little 'sticky' for a few hours after (so maybe not quite fully absorbed yet!), despite the 'shine' seeming to have gone. I would recommend using this product at night before bed, allowing the product to fully absorb for a few hours. By the morning your skin feels super soft, so the product does work, and your skin will be lightly fragranced with vanilla.

I do recommend this product, as it does indeed leave your skin feeling soft, supple and moisturised, aswell as nicely scented, although I don't personally use it right before I am due to go out.
