I’m a sucker for new Lush products. It’s a bit difficult to get a hold of things as of late though. So when I saw that there was a new body butter, Lime Bounty, coming out, I didn’t think much of it. I read that it was lime and coconut scented, and that it would be available for normal consumers. This particular item was featured in their blind box subscription. From the fan reception, it sounded like this body butter would be right up my alley.
Going from the description on Lush, Lime Bounty consists of a lime and coconut mix that is the ultimate thirst quencher for skin. The dreamy notes of Persian lime and nut butters make up a majority of the scent. On top sits fresh coconut crumble.
Now it’s common for new Lush items to sell out immediately. Which is what I thought I’d see when I logged onto the website. You can bet I was more than excited to see it was still in stock online. I opted for the 100g box because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not. I have been stuck with the occasional scent that is too much for me. It happens, not every brand is perfect.
So first onto the smell. Have you ever had a delicious key lime pie that you can’t forget? That’s this scent. It’s light, it’s fresh, it’s an early morning in the summer before the heat sets in and makes you sticky. I’ve always had a huge love for citrus scents and flavors and this made me dream of heaven.
The texture of this body cream is thick and luxe. There’s almost a “whipped” quality to it. The coconut crumble, which is what I assume is shea butter with coconut extract, doesn’t take too long to absorb. It’s a bit annoying if you’re using this body butter as a hand cream. But it’s only on the top layer and not throughout.
I’m head over heels in love with this body butter. Lime Bounty is something a bit rare in Lush. It’s a delicate and juicy flavor, where most scents are sticky or musky. I appreciate the fruitiness of it and I can’t wait to use it all summer long. The extra bits of shea butter will go a long way into my dried out skin. I often forget to lather up with lotions after a shower, I’m super lazy. But with this beautiful scent and the promise of shorts and summer, I can’t wait until it’s all sun and fun!
