King of Skin Body Butter (£5.50) is one of LUSH’s many container-less products. I think it’s a great initiative as it cuts down on unnecessary waste and you do have the option to purchase a tin, when you run out of sink space.
The bars main active ingredients are shea butter, avocado, bananas and essential oils to deeply moisturise the skin. I found the shape of the crown to be a little curious, until I realised it’s probably for ergonomic purposes so the bar doesn’t fly out of wet hands, the idea being to use it in the bath/shower. I dipped the bar into my hot bath water and the amount of product that melted onto my arm was astonishing, in fact it was a ridiculously thick layer! I decided for my legs (and in the interest of economy) I would quickly dip the bar into the water and gently smooth a little onto my skin and then massage it in, like you would do with moisturiser.
It moisturised my very parched skin instantly and sunk in fairly well without being tacky. The scent, similar to a chocolate orange, is also really lovely but not heavy enough to be overwhelming. I can imagine this working really well for people with very dry sensitive skin as it’s so naturally creamy.
