Lush Biomic Body Cream First Impressions

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I popped into Lush recently and saw that there was a new product so I knew that I had to tell you guys all about it.

Meadowsweet Infusion, Glycerine, Organic Almond Oil, Propylene Glycol, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion, Organic Jojoba Oil, Stearic Acid, Tiger Lily Extract, Organic Avocado Oil, Sacha Inchi Oil, Organic Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Orange Blossom Honey, Triethanolamine, Lemongrass Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Beeswax, Benzyl Salicylate, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume

If you are a fan of Lush then you may remember this product being out years ago under the name ‘Lovely Jubblies’. 

The texture of this product is a fun one to me. It’s thick to the point of if you tip the tub upside down nothing comes out but as soon as you scoop some out of the product it’s slightly more of a creamy consistency rather than thicker than egg whites whipped to thick peaks. When massaging this product into the skin it stays that sort of same slightly thick but not too thick cream and takes a while to sink into the skin due to well being a thick consistency and full of oils, butters and infusions. If you apply it straight after a shower or bath then obviously this cream loosens up a bit due to mixing with the residue of water left on the skin from said shower or bath so if you like body products that are little bit thinner then apply then. I’ve been mainly applying it both ways and honestly it depends on my mood and time of day on which way I’m applying it. When it is applied to the skin, I did notice that it does leave the skin with a slightly firming and sort of taut feeling to it which I quite liked but I have only been trying this for a week so I want to try this out for a little bit longer before I claim that this product does ‘firm’ the skin like I do with most beauty products when I’m reviewing them. (Just to reiterate the sinking in note, I applied a tiny bit before typing this paragraph around fifteen minutes ago and I’m still waiting for it to sink in). 

The scent of Biomic is a slightly peculiar one. I did try to compare the scent of this product with its former version but I don't fully remember what Lovely Jibblies smells like due to it being a fair amount of time since LJ was discontinued from Lush. When I first apply this to my skin, the main scent that comes through is a peppery floral sent. I believe that this is from the mixture of Meadowsweet, Tiger Lily and Rose Petals. Once the product has sinked into the skin, Biomic turns into a slightly light citrus scent. I think that this is mainly from the Lemongrass and Orange Blossom that is in the product. The two mix together to create a very peppery floral scent with a slight hint of citrus. I wish that there was a little bit more citrus in this product as depending when you smell it you can't really smell any of the citrus. 

Once I have finished this sample, I might buy the product in its full size pot. As a little goes a long way I know that it would take me a while to get through it. However, I think that this is an amazing product with some good firming properties so if I did buy I would be using it as much as possible. Prices start from £11 for Biomic.
