Lush - Dreamwash Roulade Review

Whilst our recent trip to Brighton we went into the newly refurbished Lush store, to get some goodies. I picked up a few bath bombs as well as Dreamwash. I have used Dreamwash before, but I've always had it in the usual packaging, after speaking with the assistant I found that they no longer sell that version and only sell it in the roulade form.

I wasn't too sure about it at all, but I knew the product is the same so I decided to buy it and give it a go. Usually I love every lush product I use however I am finding it very hard to get on with this. Upon first use I wasn't sure what the green thing around it was for, it feels like a wax and I'm guessing it was there to keep it from drying out? If anyone knows please tell me! I'm guessing they have gotten rid of the plastic packaging because of the waste it causes.

Bought the Lush Dreamwash Roulade

Thankfully I still had the packaging from the last dreamwash I bought so I have put it in there to keep it fresh - I feel - like a lot of their cleansers/soaps that have not got any packaging - that when I leave it on the side of my bath it just gets very messy and I don't like leaving it there.

The product itself is great, and unlike shower gel it doesn't lather up, which isn't a problem as it's more like a soap, so I only use it in specific areas where I usually get eczema.

Don't get me wrong, I love this product as it helps to calm my skin when I have bouts of eczema which is great and it also makes me feel so clean after using it. Like squeaky clean! The smell isn't great, well it doesn't really smell like anything - which I guess is because it's good for sensitive skin. Thankfully other products from lush make up for the lack of scent! 

I would say to buy this product if you have any skin problems as it really helps mine but just realise that you may have to get a container for it as it is quite messy without one.
Have you ever tried dream wash, what do you think of the new (lack of) packaging? 


  1. It's a shame that they changed to packaging because it sounds like such a good product overall!

    1. It really is a great product! But to be fair as long as you have somewhere to put it it's still a great product.
