Q:I have Ichthyosis,Keratosis Pilaris and Excema. Will this work on them even Ichthyosis?Asked on 5/15/2014 by Maya (That's Me!) from CT
A:Dream Cream is packed with gentle, nourishing ingredients, and a lot of our customers turn to it to help soothe the skin and provide a bit of relief for the symptoms of various skin conditions. However, Dream Cream is not designed to treat the conditions themselves, so if you have any doubts about using this product, it's best to check with your physician to make sure it's right for you!Answered on 8/28/2014 by Brandy from LUSH
A:It won't cure your ailments but it won't worsen them either (that's if you're not allergic to anything). I have psoriasis and keratosis pilaris. This cream is light and soothing to the skin. It's not heavy like Ceravae or Aquaphor but it's kept in moisture and worked well with my steroid creams. On good days, without a break out, this cream kept my skin calm and did not agitate it in any way. It's a good medium and moisturizer to go along with any treatment plans you have.Answered on 5/15/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Is this product too heavy to use on dry skin without a special condition(eczema)? or should i use another type of body lotion intended for dry skin?Asked on 5/10/2014 by audrey
A:Dream Cream is fabulous for those with dry skin! While it tends to work well for those with specific skin conditions, you will likely find success with it as well.Answered on 7/24/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Not at all! I have "simply" dry skin and I love Dream Cream, it doesn't feel heavy for me at all. It's very moisturizing, but not heavy.Answered on 5/29/2014 by Anonymous
A:I don't think so. It is a wonderful product. Just use moderately until you discover how much you need. (It won't take much.....it goes a long way)Answered on 5/13/2014 by Anonymous
A:Dream Cream isn't heavy at all! Easily absorbed into the skin and leaves you smelling like you just got out of the spa! My husband loves it!Answered on 5/12/2014 by Anonymous
A:The Dream Cream can be used anywhere on the body and works wonders on eczema There is nothing in it to make it sting like most lotions. I use it several times a day.

A:Although I do have severe eczema, (on parts of my body,) I do not think
it's too heavy. For the areas unaffected by my eczema, I simply wet my
hands to thin it out. Just a little water, though.Answered on 5/10/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I am wondering if the oat would be safe for a Celiac patient? I know that some consider oat products to be safe only if it is from a gluten free source, would this fall in the no-no category?Asked on 5/3/2014 by nicole from United States
A:Most Celiacs only have a issue with gluten being digested, so lotions are usually ok. That being said, it is always recommend that you check with your healthcare professional before using.Answered on 5/3/2014 by Kayla from LUSH DIRECT
Q:Is the stearic acid in the Dream Cream derived from plants?Asked on 2/20/2014 by Alyssa from Florida

Q:has anybody with keratosis pilaris tried this and experienced positive results? I read a review on the potion lotion of its positive effects on this bumpy skin condition due to dryness and was wondering if this would work betterAsked on 1/11/2014 by jenn
A:I have keratosis pilaris (on my upper arms), and I have tried Potion Lotion as well as Dream Cream. I found Dream Cream to work much better for me, and to actually WORK, at all... I've tried everything my dermatologist recommended for my KP, but nothing helped at all, until Dream Cream. It's not too heavy and greasy, but it's conditioning and moisturizing enough and doesn't leave skin dry. It also has anti-bacterial, anti-yeast, and anti-fungal properties which help to keep skin clean. I use mine right after a shower, and it has decreased my KP by about 30-40%.Answered on 3/22/2014 by Redridinghood from Grand Rapids, MI
A:Other customers using Dream Cream have had great success improving their KP. This cream helps slough off skin cells which are contributors to KP. KP is also often associated with eczema, and a lot of people with this condition rave about the positive results after using Dream Cream. The physical action of applying this lotion on the affected areas should also work to improve it.Answered on 3/8/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:Hello! I can tell you that I noticed a difference by using the Dream Cream. It wasn't gone completely, but it was noticeably better. However, I have not tried the Potion Lotion! If you're able to get a sample of the Dream Cream from a store near you I would give it a go. Some people don't enjoy the scent, but I adore it!
Sent from my iPhoneAnswered on 1/12/2014 by Anonymous
A:I do not have the condition specifically, though I have something similar on my thighs - especially in the winter months. What the Dream Cream is great for is locking in moisture. I use it after bathing and find that my skin stays moist all day - not at all greasy. This moistness allows for better exfoliation of the skin on my thighs and helps clear the skin. It takes a few weeks, but is so worth the wait. I can only imagine that it would help your keratosis pilaris. I have used the Dream Cream for nearly 6 years. I LOVE it - I've found nothing that even remotely compares!Answered on 1/11/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Is it safe to use this product on new tattoos? (usually creams that are unscented work best) would this be considered an unscented product?Asked on 1/3/2014 by julianna from United States
A:Dream Cream definitely does have a scent to it, as it is made with a collection of beautifully fragrant oils. As for use on new tattoos, we definitely recommend asking your tattoo artist, as he/she will know best! We list all of the ingredients both on the product itself, as well as online and in stores for reference.Answered on 3/14/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I have a tattoo and I've used it on it , doesn't seem to bother my skin. It
definetly has a slight smell wouldn't say it's unscented it's made with oat
milk so to me it smells kinda like that kinda earthy but in a nice way. :)
hope this helpedAnswered on 1/4/2014 by Anonymous
Q:is it safe to use on the face?Asked on 10/14/2013 by holly
A:You can, but it feels a little heavy (because it was made for your body). A facial moisturizer would be better because it's lighter. I put dream cream on my face right after the shower because I ran out of moisturizer (my face is REALLY dry right after a shower) and it definitely helped it.Answered on 12/2/2013 by Me from Colorado
A:We do not recommend that you use Dream Cream Body Cream on your face, only on the intended body parts. A moisturizer designed for the fine pores of the face would be a better option.Answered on 11/28/2013 by Anonymous
A:I've used Dream Cream on my face before and did not have any reaction to it. The ingredients are gentle! However, I only use it sparingly and rarely, like when I get a sunburn on my cheeks. For regular use I recommend using one of Lush's facial moisturizers! They are made for daily, facial use and are some of my favorite ever products from Lush!

Q:Has this caused anyone's eczema to get worse/flare up? I suddenly had an eczema flare up around the time I started using this, and I'm not sure if it's random, or if it's related to the product. Has anyone had this problem?Asked on 7/6/2013 by Katie from USA
A:This isn't something that we have heard before, however, everyone's skin is different and what works for one may not work for another. We definitely recommend consulting with your dermatologist to see what is best for you, and we list all of the ingredients on the product, on our website, and in stores for you to consult!Answered on 10/4/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I was given a small sample of this about a month ago and for me, it most definitely helped my eczema and also my psoriasis. I've heard from my dermatologist that people with these conditions sometimes have to treat them with different products because everyone has different things that trigger flare ups. So for you it may be related to the cream and what's in it. Best bet, if you have a derm doctor, find out if any of the ingredients could cause a flare up for you.Answered on 7/25/2013 by Barbie from Norfolk, Va
Q:is this good for Arthritis?Asked on 7/23/2012 by Jenn from Plano Tx
A:The Dream Cream is great for skin conditions, but because arthritis is a joint issue, finding something a bit more stimulating, that can penetrate a bit deeper, might be a better option. Call us at 1-888-733-5874, or send us an email at email@example.com and we would be happy to make some suggestions!Answered on 7/31/2012 by Laura from LUSH
Q:I have a couple of dry itchy patches on my face. Should I use Dream Cream on my face?Asked on 3/28/2012 by Anonymous
A:As for Dream Cream, it's best used only for its intended purpose on the body and hands. For dryness and itchiness on the face, a moisturizer designed for the fine pores of the facial area would be a better option. I'd recommend the Skin Drink or the Skin's Shangri-La for very dry itchy patches on the face.Answered on 4/2/2012 by Megan from LUSH
A:DEFINITELY! I have the same and after one use, it's a whole lot better!Answered on 4/16/2012 by Male user! from Virginia
A:I would definitely give it shot if nothing else is working for you. If you're like my son, I took him to doctors and dermatologists that gave us a little of this and little of that, but nothing seemed to work. Sure enough this did the trick.Answered on 4/16/2012 by EdieViolet from SanDiego
A:Yes! I have recently developed a dry flaky patch of skin on my hairline by my ear/temple area. At first I thought I'd have to go to my dermatologist for a medical fix, but thought I'd try stuff at home first. I smoothed a little Dream Cream on the patch right before bed and within 3 days, it was gone. I noticed improvement just the next morning, but it was completely cleared up after 3 days. No problems since!Answered on 4/19/2012 by Product Junkie from Tallahassee, FL
A:I have a mixture of dry and oily skin around the t-zone on my face. I would avoid any areas that you don't want to look oily since Dream Cream has a bit of an oily feel to it, but it does help clear up the dryness when used wherever!Answered on 4/23/2012 by Stephanie Ann from Dumont, New Jersey
A:I get those sorts of patches all the time, and I wouldn't recommend using dream cream for this, as it can sometimes sting those patches is the patches are sort of hurting already. I would say to try Celestial face lotion by Lush, which works great for me!Answered on 5/16/2012 by Allison from Charlotte, NC
Q:Is it possible for this product to make me break out? I used this on my whole body for months and I loved it because it made my skin so soft and almost completely cleared up my skin condition. But now I am breaking out a lot lately on my face, shoulders, and back. The more I use it, the more acne I get. Is there something in the product that could cause acne? Is there another product that does the same job as this product without the acne causing ingredients?Asked on 3/19/2012 by Anonymous
A:I am sorry to hear that the Dream Cream was not the one for you! I know that it works really well for lots of people, but everyone is different, and it may just be that the cream was too heavy for your skin. I personally found that our Retro product Skin Sin was a great option for a lighter body cream. It contains almond oil, which absorbs easily into the skin, and then soothing chamomile and balancing lavender, too. I would recommend looking for a moisturizer designed for your facial skin to use on your face, though, as the skin on your face is thinner and the pores are finer. Best of luck finding a cream that works better for you!Answered on 3/27/2012 by Laura at LUSH from Vancouver, BC
Q:Im an Indian with an wheatish complexion i have dark spots,ichy and tanned skin. will this Dream Cream help solve my problem.Thankyou
ANJUAsked on 2/6/2012 by anju from Edison, New Jersey
A:Due to each person's skin uniqueness, consider trying this cream, the natural ingredients and low amount of processing make it beneficial for most any type of skin, oat milk and lavender are especially soothing to skin.Answered on 2/13/2012 by Community Answer from None
A:The Dream Cream is great for use on hand and body, but we do not recommend using the Dream Cream on the facial skin. It's best to use a facial moisturizer for this purpose. For body- Dream Cream is fantastic for soothing itching and irritation as it contains lots of soothing oils like lavender, chamomile and rose, as well as calming oats.Answered on 2/16/2012 by Megan from LUSH
Q:Is it true that Lush has changed the ingredients and that the Dream Cream is now different? I would want to buy this for my sister who has terrible exema (sp.). People said it was good for that. But then there is the review from the person who says it is no longer the same and does not work for the exema anymore... Please be honest!
Thanks!Asked on 1/30/2012 by DoISmellLush? from Williamsburg, IA
A:The formula for Lush Dream Cream hasn't been changed. What is likely is that the Dream Cream was old. Due to the fact that a lot of the ingredients used by Lush have a shorter shelf life, they can go bad causing the texture of the moisturizer to change. Just be sure to check the use by date on the Dream Cream when you buy it for your sister.Answered on 2/2/2012 by Community Answer from None
A:The Dream Cream formula has not changed. In the summer when it's hot out, the texture can seem a bit thinner from the heat, however all its made the same way it always has been and contains all the same gorgeous ingredients.Answered on 8/30/2012 by Megan from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this product suitable for use with children under5.Asked on 1/25/2012 by Anonymous
A:As long as the child hasn't shown any allergies or had any irritations from this product or any ingredients in it, it should be fine for use as long as a parent or adult supervises to make sure they don't consume the cream.Answered on 1/26/2012 by Community Answer from None
A:I don't expect there should be any problems with this, however I'd recommend verifying with your pediatrician to be completely sure it would be suitable for your kids.Answered on 8/30/2012 by Megan from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this product safe for pregnant women?Asked on 1/18/2012 by Quita
A:We have had lots of pregnant women fall in love with the Dream Cream during their pregnancies, because of how soothing and healing it is on the skin, but we would always recommend checking with your health care provider before using products during pregnancies. Although we use essential oils in relatively low quantities, some health care providers recommend avoiding certain ingredients or essential oils throughout pregnancy. Check in with yours, and see what they recommend (you can always print out a copy of the ingredients and bring it in with you to an appointment).Answered on 7/13/2012 by Laura from LUSH
