I am super excited to send my review to IMBB. Hoping that you all would find it useful as well.
I have always liked Lush skin products. Whenever I am in Lush store I feel like I am in a wonderland.All the beautiful handmade products lure me and it is very hard to stop shopping at only one product.
I have an extremely dry skin so I always tend to reach for skin products, which can provide ample moisturization.
So lets see how much care did the ‘Nanny ’provide…shall we?
First Impression on Lush British Nanny
The cream comes in a black pot which is made of 100% recycled plastic…hurray for the environment. Also they do not test the products on animals.The texture is extremely thick and creamy due to the rich Shea butter and Candelilla wax content. The cream in an off white color with musky smell.Though it contains tiger lily flower infusions and fresh apple juice, it does not smell floral at all.And the sad part is the fragrance hangs around on the skin even after hours….so if you have a sensitive nose please watch out.Due to my dry skin, I generally find very easy to blend any moisturizer. But that was not true with this cream. It really takes an effort and time to blend it well.You can see in the swatch that the cream leaves a greasy look.
In summers I was not able to use this cream at all. Any sweating on the face would instantly give me shiny oily look with this cream.In spite of the dry weather and dry skin I was constantly blotting my face. Any compact or foundation used on top of the cream instantly gets ruined.However I found this cream more useful during winters. It kept my skin moisturized and healthy looking.The cream has SPF30 so that is a major advantage as I do not have to worry about including sunscreen when I use this cream.
Since blending this cream was huge task in itself, I always take small amount of the cream and mix few drops of Dabur Gulabri in it. The rose water makes the cream more liquefied to use. You can see in the swatch that it has given a more even look on the skin.
Here is another tip; this cream is extremely good night cream for skin repair.
It contains cold pressed oilslike organic almond, coconut oil, jojoba oil and hibiscus seed oil. When I apply this cream and leave it overnight, my skin looks better the next day. The skin looks nourished and hydrated.

I really love Lush products but for Lush British Nanny, my answer is sadly No.
It was not a very pleasant experience with this product. And I do not recommend it either.
