Q:Does this product need to be refrigerated? i know some of Lushes products need to be.Asked on 12/22/2014 by thatswimmergirl from corunna mi
A:Hi there! No you don't have to keep it refrigerated. You can keep it at room temperature!Answered on 12/31/2014 by Anonymous
Q:When I use this...should it be used first and then say another shower gel/soap after or is it meant to be used alone? My skin always feels smoother after but not necessarily clean. Is this meant to be a stand alone cleanser or is it paired better with someone else?Asked on 10/23/2014 by newlushieusa from Florida
A:Our Dreamwash Shower Smoothie is considered a soap and it is perfectly fine as a stand alone product. However, it is known for its moisturizing properties and if you prefer a more squeaky clean finish, then you might want to try our soaps or shower gels. Pairing up the Shower Smoothies with a shower gel or a soap can diminish the moisturizing effects of the Shower Smoothie.Answered on 11/6/2014 by Farinaz from LUSH Direct
Q:If I use Dreamwash in the shower, do I need to put on body lotion afterward?Asked on 3/9/2014 by Ash
A:Totally up you! While it is moisturizing, everyone's skin is different.Answered on 3/11/2014 by Kayla from LUSH DIRECT
A:Yes, I would still use a moisturizer. It gives a squeaky clean feeling, not a particularly hydrated one. I follow with Dream Cream.Answered on 3/10/2014 by Anonymous
A:I have really dry skin so I still do. I am guessing someone with normal skin may not need to.

A:Yes. I don't find the item drying... but I also don't find it moisturizing the way the ingredients would suggest. Lotion is a must with this product.

Q:How many uses does one container have? If I were to use this product as a soap-alternative in the shower, is it worth the money? Would I need more than one pot a month?Asked on 2/26/2014 by Tabs from Kansas City, MO
A:The amount of uses you get per pot really depends on how much product you are using, and how often you are using it. That being said, it should definitely last you more than a month even if you are using it daily, as a little bit goes a very long way.Answered on 3/21/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
It really does depend on how much you use and the frequency of use. If you are using the Dreamwash to just affect a certain problem area, and only once a week, it will definitely last longer than if you are using it all over your body every day. The good thing about Dreamwash is that it is more solid than other smoothies - almost a clay or putty - so you have a lot of control over portion and lather in the shower or bath, it is similar to a soft bar of soap. I would say if you like a lot of the softer and creamier soaps that LUSH offers, Dreamwash ranks similarly as far as use and amount spent in a bath or shower. I really enjoy Porridge, and because of it's creamy consistency, I feel like it goes pretty fast when I use it every day. Although, I think because you can take out the amount of Dreamwash you want to use, you can start with a little handful, and protect the rest from moisture and water, you can have a bit more control of how much product gets used in a typical bathing session. My experience with the product has been it can last me 3-4 months, but it is more or less because I do not use it every day, I focus on problem areas (although I have used it as full body wash too!) and it is something I prefer to use in just the summer (when I have bugbites and sunburn!) rather than year round.
I think it can definitely last you more than a month, but you really have to consider your use! It is definitely a great soap supplement/replacement, and it is just based on your preference.
Happy bathing!Answered on 2/27/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Would you recommend that this be used with Ro's Aragon or do they do similar things?
Thank you.Asked on 9/27/2013 by Shauna
A:Dreamwash Shower smoothie does have some similar properties to Ro's Argan. They both will provide you with smooth skin and are very soothing as they contain some of the same ingredients.
With Dream Wash, we’ve put all of the most soothing ingredients we could find – aloe vera, lavender, rose, tea tree, calamine and chamomile and blended them into one creamy shower smoothie so you can cleanse and lavish your skin with all of the care it deserves. With Ro's Argan, we've added scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, making it is the most luxurious body softener that ever was.
I would recommend using these two products together for the ultimate shower experience. Another great option is Turkish Delight!Answered on 11/17/2013 by Anonymous
A:Yes I have only tried Dreamwash myself in shower and Ro Argon I got to
try out at a lush store and I wish I had bought the Ro Argon cause it
smells amazing!!! Dreamwash kinda of dried my skin out and it got really
tight after like almost using a bar of soap, I think the Ro Argon would
have worked better on my skin I actually plan on buying it eventually!!Answered on 9/30/2013 by Anonymous
Q:Can dream wash be used as soap?Asked on 6/11/2013 by Zach the skin maniac
A:Yes, Dreamwash can be used as a soap alternative! You could try using it with a gentle shower puff to get a rich creamy lather. The only place it isn't recommended for is your face.Answered on 9/25/2013 by Anonymous
A:I have at times used it in place of soap - this would work especially if you have a sunburn or some other sensitive irritation. However, it doesn't cleanse as deeply as the soaps and shower gels so I wouldn't plan to use dreamwash as a soap every day.Answered on 6/30/2013 by Kay-ver from Lexington, KY
Q:Can I use this on a newborn baby? Is it safe? What about Ickle Baby Bot?Asked on 8/30/2012 by New Mummy
A:Our products are not tested on newborn babies, so we're not able to recommend our products for that use in general. If you would like to use them in this way, I'd definitely recommend checking the product's ingredients list with your family doctor or pediatrician, and they can give you the best advice on the suitability of these products for your child in particular.Answered on 11/9/2012 by Brandy from LUSH
Q:I notice that there is no surfactant in Dreamwash, which usually acts as the cleaning agent in shower gels and soaps. What in Dreamwash is the cleaning agent? Is it the salt?Asked on 5/28/2012 by Tarik from Baltimore, MD
A:In Dreamwash, we don't want there to be too much intense foaming action since it's meant to soothe and calm the skin. In the ingredients, you'll see sodium hydroxide playing a role, as it's a part of the process for soap making to get it to lather.Answered on 5/31/2012 by Megan from LUSH
Q:Can I use Dreamwash on my face?Asked on 4/30/2012 by Anonymous
A:We recommend Dreamwash for the body, as products for the face are a little gentler and more suited to the fine pores in the facial area. If you like Dreamwash for the body, I'd recommend trying the Fresh Farmacy or Ultra Bland on your face for calming and soothing skin troubles.Answered on 5/3/2012 by Megan from LUSH
A:Absolutely! I used to use Fresh Farmacy facial cleanser, but I would find it a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin. A gal at my local LUSH recommended Dreamwash instead to use as a facial cleanser as it is basically the same ingredients as fresh farmacy, but with less soap. Try it! I love it! I have very sensitive, acneic skin and I have had no breakouts nor irritation from this product!Answered on 5/14/2012 by shehesitated from Seattle, Wa
A:No. it is too strong.Answered on 5/15/2012 by Misshotpink100 from New York City, NY
